5.0 out of 5 stars Great Home Vacuum Sealer, 19 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was slightly worried buying this when it had no reviews but am glad as it has a powerful vacuum pump and works very well. The stainless steel is really for aesthetic reasons and doesn't have any structural purpose as far as I can see. It is well made and I find the "moist" setting useful although I hate the word. If you are brave enough you can vacuum seal food with liquids if you let the bag hang down over your counter as gravity helps. When you see the liquid travelling towards the machine tap the seal button and it is very quick to respond. This is great for my water bath.

Another good thing is that it can use any number of different food safe vacuum bags, you are not limited to one or two particular brands at extortionate prices. For best results (for a very good vacuum) use the corrugated rolls/bags.

I work for a catering company which has various vacuum packers and I would say (only my opinion!) that this is better than the Sous Vide branded sealer and (for me) almost half the price.

For power, features and style. I would definitely recommend this for someone serious about sous vide cooking at home, or even light commercial use.

Hope this helps for a first review!!

This is great if you like Spike Milligan and his humour and the world of Gobledigook! Many hours of fun reading to children and adults alike. I have the hardback version with the CD read by the man himself. This is a must for any children's book shelf who have silly parents!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great inspirational cook book, 19 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has the most amazing recipes and wonderful pictures.

It is fantastic for getting ideas from. Unless you are an amazing chef with access to incredible ingredients and equipment you should use this for inspiration rather than following a recipe unless you have access to liquid nitrogen for making snow etc!
Great coffee table book...
