This VacMaster Pro260 Vacuum Sealer review began with us looking at the features. This model boats a double seal, which is very coveted in the vacuum sealing world. It also includes a roll dispenser system that can hold two rolls.
As a bonus you can also find that it has a built-in roll cutter. This saves you from having to break out the scissors and strive for a straight cut, (which we can assure you is quite difficult).
The dual piston vacuum pump on this model is very powerful and remove all air from the food package every time, and will not overheat thanks to the internal cooling fan.
There a lot of options for this model including the marinating option which reduces marinating time significantly by using vacuum technology to squeeze in the marinade into the food.
There’s also the pulse option for delicate items. With the post option you are fully in control with the amount of vacuum and can keep it from applying too much pressure to an item that you feel may be crushed.
Really, this model was designed for those who like a lot of options.

The VacMaster Pro260 also has different seal options. You can go through the regular process for regular jobs.
You can also stop the vacuuming process at any time with the seal now button. When this button is pressed it stops the vacuum and then creates a seal immediately. This is helpful when sealing in delicate items as well, as if they become in danger of being crushed, you can immediately stop that from happening.
