Our Opinion:

The Minipack MVS 45X is an industrial level, heavy duty chamber vacuum sealer that is suitable for packaging food products and other perishable items in bulk quantities. This chamber sealer features auto-calibration and also has a digital panel with 10 different storable programs to reduce the steps necessary to perform repetitive tasks. It also has a built-in volumetric sensor and is protected against excess current passing through to the sealing bar.

The machine is pretty large and measures 21.5 inches X 25.5 inches X 19.2 inches, with the vacuum chamber measuring 21.5” X 25.5” X 4.5”, spacious enough for packaging a variety of products without any hindrance. Being fully automated, you simply have to set it up once to complete bulk sealing. All you need to do is keep adding items to seal in the chamber with the appropriate bag. What makes this an industrial grade sealer is its heavy build. The unit weighs 210 pounds and is built using industrial grade materials making it sturdy and durable.

Portability: 3/5

Forget about moving this vacuum sealer, it is massive and heavy. This sealer is designed to sit quietly in one corner of your kitchen and churn out perfectly sealed bags every few seconds. If you don’t have enough space on your kitchen countertop, you may want to take a look at smaller chamber sealers. Moreover, this is a commercial design hence it will be overkill for most domestic users, unless you intend to market propriotary vacuum sealed goods.

The Minipack MVS 45X chamber vacuum sealer is probably the best buy for people thinking of venturing into the packaging business, especially for food items such as fish, beef, vegetables, milk, vegetables, liquids, fruits and more. For us, the one feature that won us over is the ease of operating it. Most vacuum sealers are too simple and those with industrial grade construction tend to complicate things beyond necessity. The MVS 45X thankfully brings out the best of both worlds with simplicity in functioning and automatic calibration to get rid of complicated tasks.
