I bought a Moel, not happy.

Fri, 2018-08-24 13:54

Bought  on recommendations from here, and have never been happy with it. Noisy as F**, vaccing is only average, and it has now started to play up after not a lot of work at all. Had a Sunbeam before that, used for many years, only bough the Moel when the Sunbeam seemed to be showing it's age.

Sunbeam Food Saver

Mon, 2018-08-27 12:07

 I have the Sunbeam Food Saver VS7800 unit. I use it all the time and have had it for 4 years and not a drama with it. It has a few modes to use such as wet or soft which is handy. I put two cray tails together, wrap a bit with glad wrap to hold them together and then vacuum seal them and they last for 12 months easy. It's more expense than some but I think its worth it. Have a read of the reviews.

I buy my bags bulk from Master Butchers in Canningvale as they do different sized bags. I have never used the rolls but some say they are good and come with the machine.

 I have the sunbeam, but will be getting the Pacfood one as soon as this one dies, has a built in fan so never overheats

Got Both

Mon, 2018-08-27 21:14

 I’ve got the Sunbeam and the Möel , use both all the time . The Sunbeam is good for quick heat sealing jobs ( ie resealing  Panko bread crumbs ) yet the Möel sucks like a Cuban whore when it comes to vacuum sealing . It’s amazing how often they’re getting used and how they contribute to less spoilt food . Hey Andy Gnaraloo Bay was awesome for a swim yesterday, did a quick road trip from home for a picnic with the wife...:)

Pac Food - VS305

Tue, 2018-08-28 17:28

Hi there mate, I had a Sunbeam one for a while which was ok but always overheated, it died and I decided to get something a bit more commerical, I ended up buying a PAC Food sealer and havent regretted the purchase awesome machine and beats the small ones hands down, a little more pricey but then a mate of mine bought a similar machine from Master Butchers in Canning Vale and paid nearly a grand so I think I got a good deal, I have posted a link below for you to have a look at it, mine is slightly different as I see they have a clear lid now and mine is stainless but the rest looks like the samae machine.

Good luck!
