Seal-a-Meal VS107 Food Sealer
Countertop vacuum food sealer
Countertop food sealers are easier to use than handheld sealers, plus they can save money in the long run. That's because most models, including the Seal-a-Meal VS107 Food Sealer, can work with rolls of plastic in addition to precut storage bags. On the plus side, the Seal-a-Meal performs well in two professional tests, holding a seal and preventing freezer burn up to two months. On the downside, owner reviews are split down the middle (as they are for nearly all vacuum food sealers, regardless of brand or price). The most consistent complaint is that it takes a long time to create the seal, and you're required to hold the lid down forcibly until the seal starts to set.
