Chamber Vacuum Pack Machines Buying Guide

Chamber Vacuum Packing Machines - A Buying Guide

Chamber Vacuum pack machines are great at quickly sealing food in an airtight way. 

In fact, they can be done quickly due to those powerful pumps and large chambers, which also means they’re suitable for multiple pouch sizes. 

This is great for more efficient home cooking but also ideal for the professional chef who needs durability from their equipment. 

All of the vacuum packing machines at SousVideTools.com are easy to clean and come with at least a 1 year parts and labour warranty. 

Please note, this warranty is only valid when the product is used in its intended environment, so be sure to select your next machine depending on either domestic or professional needs. 

To get an idea which vacuum packing machine is best for your requirements, take a look at our comparison table below or read our guide to find out more.


Here’s our simple guide to buying a chamber vacuum pack machine

Why Vacuum Pack?

Some food types need to be stored in an airless environment, usually in airtight packaging to reduce the growth of microorganisms. When vacuum sealing, most of the bacteria is expelled from the bag as the air is removed, providing a very safe and hygienic method of storage.

Vacuum sealing also helps maintain the product quality and size. For example, in meat items such as steaks, the blood can’t leak out and the meat doesn’t dry out so the product weight is maintained. Vacuum packing food can extend its life by three to five times.

You’ll also need to vacuum seal ingredients before sous vide cooking. After all, that’s what sous vide means; ‘cooking under vacuum.’ 

Pre-prepared foods such as fresh or sliced meats, fish, poultry, vegetables, fruits, salads and cheeses can be stored for several days without reduced quality. By pre-portioning soups, sauces and completed dishes you can reduce food wastage. All these benefits help increase efficiency in the kitchen. Cooked and raw food can be hygienically stocked in vacuum pouches for storage in the fridge or easily transported between locations with minimal risks of cross-contamination.

In Short the main benefits of vacuum packing are:

  • To eliminate oxidation
  • In preparation for sous vide cooking
  • To maintain natural moisture
  • To prevent freezer burn
  • To preserve delicate flavours & oils
