If you are tired of having food in the fridge go bad too quickly, then you should invest in a chamber vacuum sealer. These create sealed bags that prevent any air from getting in, so food rots much more slowly than with sandwich bags or Tupperware. Chamber vacuum sealers are growing in popularity, which means more companies are trying to build and sell them. The proliferation of vacuum sealers means that you as an informed customer deserve to have a guide that will describe the best ones available. This post is a list of five top chamber vacuum sealers, their price, where you can buy them and a short review of each one.

1. VacMaster VP112S Chamber Vacuum Sealer, $690, Amazon


The VP112S is a premier chamber vacuum sealer with a genuinely affordable price. The machine is compact, but it can still handle large bags and even bags of liquid. That comes from the excellent technology inside the sealer. In addition to traditional sealing, you can set it to a marinate mode that is especially designed to help sauces come together just right and turn out the perfect marinated meat and fish. At $690, the initial outlay is high, but vacuum bags are very cheap and up until just recently a good chamber vacuum sealer would cost upwards of $1,000. If you plan to seal frequently, this is probably the best buy on the market right now.

2. VacMaster VP215 Chamber Vacuum Sealer, $999, Amazon


VacMaster's VP215 is like the big brother to the VP112S. It is a cube-shaped sealer with a larger chamber and more capacity, a double-seal technology for extra protection and an engine with a quarter horsepower of force to get the job done. This is really built for commercial applications; it is probably more capacity than a family would be able to use regularly, and it costs more than the VP112S. But if you need a lot of vacuum sealing, then this machine is very hard to beat. It can handle bags up to 10 inches by 13 inches. The machine is large at 20 by 14 by 15 inches, so be prepared for that.

3. PolyScience 300 Series Chamber Vacuum Sealer, $999, Amazon


The 300 Series from PolyScience is in the same league as the VacMaster VP215. It is a little smaller in size, about the same price and has an oil-free piston pump. There are quite a few settings on the machine because you can choose the vacuum level, vacuum hold time and seal time. It has built-in marination cycles as well. Compared to the VacMaster this sealer is a little more suitable for home use, although it is still quite bulky. The one that works better for you depends on whether you need the extra capacity of the VacMaster or not, as well as whether you can get one of them on a good deal when you buy it.

4. VacMaster VP210 Chamber Vacuum Sealer, $949, Amazon


VacMaster's VP210 is very similar to the VP215. The one difference is that instead of an oiled engine, it has a dry piston similar to the one in the PolyScience 300. This is essentially the home consumer version of the VP215, making it a direct competitor to the PolyScience. The piston needs no maintenance, although it won't last as long as the oiled engine. It does have a lower price than the PolyScience by a little, but that can fluctuate based on sales and deals.

5. FoodKing Vacuum Sealer Vacuum Packing Machine Vacuum Chamber Kit Kitchen Storage Food Saver Preserving System 120W Commercial Grade Stainless Steel, $749, Amazon


The FoodKing chamber vacuum sealer is not as good of a product as the other large sealers on this list, but it is cheaper than all but the first one. It comes from a Chinese company and does not have particularly good instructions or construction, but it is often on sale at a point where it becomes the cheapest sealer on the list. If you do not think you will use it very often and you do not mind learning to use the machine yourself, then the FoodKing might be right for you. 

Here it is on Amazon.

As you can see, there are a few different tiers of chamber vacuum sealers available based on size and motor. Try to plan out how much vacuum sealing you will do and how large your bags will be. There is no need to get a commercial-grade sealer if you are just going to seal soup occasionally. But regardless of your needs, you should be able to satisfy them with one of the sealers on this list. Each of them offers great value and their own set of features.
