View Full Version : Recommend me a Vacuum Packer
To go with my new dehydrator, who can recommend a a particular make of Vacuum Packer. The cheaper the better! Any to avoid and are all bags/film the same?
Here's a cheap one but never used it myself
BTW is your dehydrator any good?. what model is it and would you recommend it?
It's this one: http://www2.westfalia.net/shops/household/preserving_food_and_jam_making/preserving_food/dehydrating_/193811-food_dehydrator.htm
It came recommended and I'm VERY impressed.
have you checked this one out ? I don't have one but just spotted this on your Wesfalia link
Net reviews on the Westfalia sealers aren't favourable unfortunately.

This subject is worth doing a bit of research before spending your hard earned pennys, we have been looking at them for a while now, would appear that most of the units you buy for less than a hundred quid generally fail quite quickly for various reasons, what we have decided is that rather than keep wasting £70 here and £80 there we would buy a semi pro one, the extra £100 initial outlay would soon be recouped in less spoiling of produce etc.
What i would reccomend is you take a minute to look at the cabellas site, each is reviewed indipendantly by customers, we are sending for the one that is about £200, we have bought from cabellas on several occasions, their shipping is very efficient and prompt. We have no connection with them other than being thoroughly satisfied customers.
I got mine from ASDA - I think its this one from JML
It's been ok - nothing spectacular but does the job well - I'd agree with the other posters about spending more money in buying a better one though.
I have used the Eiffel Freshpack Pro and it was great. Did a good job of packing some game I shot (actually rabbit and grouse).
Vacuum sealers also tend to be reviewed on ultralight backpacking forums and outdoor gear review sites.
I had a few reviews linked till my laptop killed 20 months of saved data!
