To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Having read the reviews for many different vacuum seal units I decided to get this inexpensive V2244 with just the basic vac and seal. First of all, read the instructions. They are not as detailed as they should be but do point out some important things to remember. DON"T over fill the bags or make the bag too small. Trying to save money by stuffing the bags will not work. The bags need to lay flat in the vacuum and heat seal strip to work properly. No puckers or folds! DO make sure the area of the bag that will heat seal is clean and dry. Any moisture in this area will compromise the seal. This is especially true with oil or grease. If there is oil on the seal area don't waste your time trying to seal it. You can't clean the oil from the plastic well enough without some kind of soap so just use another bag and keep it clean. It also helps to lay the bag on a cutting board or book to keep the bag and sealer on the same plane so that everything starts out flat. With some common sense and practice this sealer works fine.
I purchased one of these for my girlfriend's birthday (it sounds like a terrible gift idea, but I promise she wanted one!) a couple of months ago. We didn't use it immediately and just had it sitting in the kitchen for about three months. We tried using it for the first time and it's just plainly defective.
I've used vacuum sealers before and am comfortable in their operation. This one is no different from others I've used, with the exception that this one simply doesn't work. The unit is junk, and doesn't complete a seal. I would chalk it up to a defect, except since the time I purchased the original unit three months ago and now, the price has been cut in half. Clearly they know this unit is no good.
Their customer support is of no help whatsoever, and to be honest kind of struck me as rude/dismissive in their responses. They won't offer any remediation except to say that the unit shouldn't sit as the gasket will dry out. That's a fine response, but anything that can't sit for three months without "drying out" is not a product worth putting money into. Either way, avoid this product and the entire company since you'll never get any help out of them.
Las instrucciones sobre cómo poner la bolsa no son nada claras, he tenido que ver varios videos en YT, cuando por fin descifré cómo se ponen logré empacar salami. Después de eso la máquina no ha vuelto a empacar nada, presiono el botón y no empeiza, la he desconectado una y otra vez y no empieza, NO COMPREN ESTE ARTÍCULO ES MUY DIFÍCIL DE USAR
Barely got through sealing the food I had on hand before it quit working properly. It vacuums 90% of the air out then seals it not vacuum tight. Also bought the jar sealer and it doesn't work either(perhaps same issue)
