Submitted a photo... and gotta say, I wish I could bump this up a half star. While the usability is still a bunch of buttons, you won't use them after a week of playing around. You'll set your favorites on the 1-3 preset buttons, and only use them.
Overall, I am extremely happy with how it works. Fast, relatively quite by comparison, and bullet proof - makes me wish I had eliminated the Foodsaver so much earlier.
It does not fit under counters well... unless you are pulling it out. It just goes up too high. But, it does fit in a cupboard (just make sure you lift with your legs not your back).
Comes with a bunch of bags... I burned through them quickly while playing with infusing things. But, unlike food saver, you can use the bulk pro bags, and they are very affordable. Thus far is also seems to stay very very clean. Maybe its just me not being a slob, but unless you are clumsy, you can expect the machine to show well. Oh, it also doesn't seem to be too bothered by a lot of use at once. The last time sounded just like the first time.
One minor complaint - the power cord is really short. Go but a longer one at your local computer place (standard computer power cable) or from amazon. Will allow you to be a bit farther from the always inconveniently placed outlets.
Full disclosure - I ended up buying this from another vendor, after experience with one elsewhere, due to a discounted coupon. I am writing a review as it seems no one else has put one up, but these machines deserve some input. Its price point is about $25% higher than its closest competitor - not new if you are familiar with PolScience - and it feels like that is deserved. Seems very well built.
First and foremost, the ONLY thing I am dinging this machine for is that is it not designed to integrate into the home kitchen - you may fault me with this, but they also sell a professional line, so this is clearly aimed at the prosumer, and as such, working a little better in terms of height/design/weight would have been nice. That said, its a beautiful unit. But that is the ONLY reason for a slightly reduced rating.
That and it is not for the inexperienced. The buttons are not unfriendly, but it does take some work with the manual to understand how to set up the machine the way you want - and you'll want to do so. Once you get it to seal the bags of your choice, and are happy with it, save the setting. It will save you time in the future.
Any reasonable amount of searching online can find the technical description of the device, so I'll cover why I chose it over the Vacmaster suite - controls. This unit both feels better thought out, and acts like it. I miss the analogue vacuum gauge, but that is a minor thing. It works pretty much exactly as described online, and is easy enough that you'll find that you are using far more than you thought you would.
I have a prosumer kitchen, so the device looks like it fits in, but a bit less height would have allowed it a better place under the cupboards by my Sousvide setup, and though you will rarely move it, it is very very heavy for its size.
Usability interface would make all the difference here. But it is designed for the technical chef (come on - hunters and fisherman are going to buy a cheaper simpler device, this is for cooks)...
I'll update after using it longer... and post some photos.
The power cord has 4.5 ft reach, which is plenty long for me. Despite the spartan look of the control panel, the device is actually very simple to use. It has one seal bar that makes one seal line that is wide compared to the thin seal line made by the foodsaver that I threw in the trash. I guess I wanted two seal lines initially because more seemed better, but honestly don't care now seeing how well one works. The sealer I got has a translucent flexible plastic looking seal that I was skeptical about at first because I was expecting a solid square cross section foam looking seal that I saw in research, but what I got works well that it changed my mind.
Could use a pair of handles.
Arrived with a few small scratches which were not from shipping, but minor issues compared to perfect performance.
I continue to be amazed- yesterday I sealed fresh salmon on the highest settings and it didn't compress the flesh one bit. At first I thought it had to be broken, since all the foodsavers I've ever used would have turned the fillet into a sheet as thin as paper, but the fillets are perfectly package and froze well. All of a sudden, I have sushi-grade fish thanks to a salmon, a fisherman, Costco, a knife company, sundanzer/dometic freezers, and polyscience. Oh, and let's not forget Amazon....
