Functional Versatility: 4/5
The VacMaster VP 215 is extremely flexible in its functionality. From steaks, fish, meat, sausages to fruits, veggies, soups, sauces, stews to grains, flour, etc. The VacMaster VP 215 can seal everything into a pouch. It is also ideal for sous-vide cooking. It can seal almost everything in a pouch, as long as the content to be stored doesn’t protrude out or doesn’t create holes in the storage bag. Although it does not have an extension attached to seal jars or containers, it seals things in the storage bags to perfection.
The VacMaster VP 215 is made of solid stainless steel, which makes it is quite heavy. This hinders its frequent movement from one place to another. Measuring 20 x 14 x 15 inches in size, it is fairly large and needs a committed space for storage. It is perfect for using in kitchen at home or in small restaurants or commercial establishments. In short, it isn’t really for large-scale packaging or bigger establishments.
Ease Of Use: 5/5
The VacMaster VP 215 is very easy to use and operates through a very simple process. Place the content in the sealing bag, open the lid of the sealer, place the pouch as directed with the opening tucked into the seal bar and close the lid. The chamber will suck out all the air and create a void within the bag, leaving absolutely no air inside. When the pressure is released it makes a sound, indicating that the process is complete, which takes barely a few seconds. Since the lid is transparent, the entire process can be easily viewed. Make sure not to over-fill the bag, this may cause spilling.
Warranty And Replacements: 4/5
The VacMaster VP 215 comes with a limited one year warranty. It is delivered with excellent packaging, where the machine is double boxed, covered with saran wrap and tightly foam packed, so that no damaged is caused during shipping or delivery. In case of any damage or breakage of any part, the same will be replaced. However, during the replacement part being shipped, shipping will not be free of charge.
Maintenance is very easy as it comes with a maintenance kit and changing the oil of the pump is also not a tough task. Additionally, since the VacMaster VP 215 comes with different sizes of storage bags, it not only proves to be economical but also is a more convenient option. Remember to add oil to the machine when using it for the first time. Since, the sealer is quite heavy, trying to move it frequently wouldn’t be the brightest thing to do.
Our Overall Rating: 4.3/5
