VacMaster® Pro130 Vacuum Sealer

Our VacMaster® Pro130 combines commercial quality with advanced technology and superb design. Our Pro130 keeps food fresh up to five times longer and is great for portion Control and table-ready dishes. Our digital control panel allows you to choose automatic or manual settings or to instantly seal any bag, eliminating partial seals and wasted storage bags. The extra-long seal bar raises and lowers during the vacuum process so the bag is heated only during that time. And the deeper, wider vacuum chamber easily wipes clean. In addition, the Pro130 meets commercial-grade quality standards so it is durable enough to withstand heavy use.

Great product with Costco Warranty

Model Number: Vac Master Pro 130
"I drove myself nutty looking at all the different sealers on the market.. I finally decided on the Vac Master as it was on deal from Costco.Com for $138 with an assortment of bags to start things out.
The first one I got would not work right out of the box. The tech support people asked me to return it to Costco and order another unit. I did and I might add the delivery time from Costco was about 4 days and the return of the defective unit was quick and easy at my local Costco.
Add to this I bought it with my Costco AMEX card and that doubles the stated warranty from the mfg.
One of the features I looked for was a quick turn around time on operation of the sealer. This one fills the need. Waiting for the vac. motor to cool down screams "CHEAP" quality."

good seals so far.

"i too couldn't get the sealer to work. i read the directions. i finally realized that when it was shipped there were a couple of temporary foam pieces attached to the top/ lid that were just meant to be there for shipping purposes. once i took those off, it worked great when i followed the directions & had the top of the bag in the right place.
worked like a champ! i LOVE being able to vaccuum seal everything! it's just two of us and sometimes we don't get motivated to cook when we're busy - this is making it easy to cook/ prep a big batch of whatever and vacuum seal part for later. yay!
have sealed cheese, brownies, fruit, burgers, pork chops, etc. just followed the directions to prefreeze the meats and fruits for a couple of hours first."

Didn't Work

Cons: doesn't work.
"I was excited to start using this sealer. I ordered it from Costco.com and it didn't work. It made noise but didn't seal or vacuum. I took it back and bought a Food Saver which works like a charm."
