Got delivered this morning. Had to use it and share my experience.
- seals and vacuum seals - able to use and bag - supplied roll of vacuum seal plastic and a few pre cut bags - easy to use very intuitive - powerful suction motor - efficient sealing - stainless steel exterior and compact. Easy to move around and keep clean
Cons: - suction motor loud (loud as any other food saver) - extensive manual, took a while to read
I bought this to vacuum seal about 25kg of fresh salmon I got given.
It coped admirably and we were all done after 4 hours. A handful of the bags didn't have all their air taken out but I was able just to slice off the top (I'd made the bags a little bit too big) and on a 2nd attempt they worked perfectly. I think my few glitches were down to user error and the sealer receiving heavy use straight out of the box rather than any flaw in the product.
Overall an impressive tool. Not used one before so have no real reference points and I'm sure there are better and more powerful models available but this works extremely well and is tremendous value.
It’s so easy to use, I love it, I am very happy with this purchase of the Geryon vacuum sealer . The bags that came with this worked great, the extra ones I got , don’t work with meat and poultry, I think you need to use double sided ridge ones not the ridge one side and smooth on the other they didn’t work.
The delivery was on time and the product was well protected. The instruction was easy to read and the sealer is simple to operate. It was a simple plug and start. Just a little tip for when you close the cover, you need to press a bit harder.
Simple to use and performs well. First time vac sealer and was surprised how quick and easy this was. Only complaint is that it's a US product and comes with a separate US->AU adaptor. Not a huge issue but not called out on the listing as far as I can see.
