This food sealer is a chamber food sealer, which means that it has the ability to vacuum seal in moist foods, or even liquids such as crème brulee if you’d like to try your hand at cooking this dish sous vide. (It is fantastic.)
The VP210 also has a customizable vacuum allowing you to adjust the amount of vacuum for more delicate foods. This can keep you from ‘crushing’ fish. In addition to the vacuum, the seal is also customizable, which means you can adjust it to seal thicker or thinner bags, or turn off the seal feature altogether for instances such as canning small jars inside.
You could even use this model to mock the Weston Pro- 2300 in its marinating feature, by vacuuming without sealing, then releasing repeatedly. All of these features combined land the VP210 on the list of TOP vacuum sealers.
