I purchased this for my husband as a gift. I researched a ton prior. This unit was well reviewed by a few sous vide chefs. I liked the size, as we do not plan on using it often, so wanted something easy to store. It arrived, and we used it for our first successful long cook with our Anova. Super easy, great seal, fast, easy to clean and store. At the time, seemed like a wise purchase.
A few months later, I went to use it again and it was dead. I placed it on the charger overnight, suspicious as no light came on the cradle, but hopeful. The next day, nothing.
So I contacted Waring. I received a lovely reply, saying I could mail the unit back for replacement, but unless the unit is charged monthly, it loses the ability to recharge and dies permanently. Thus I needed to charge my new unit once a month to have it work. I replied that I had somewhere I could store it plugged in permanently, but the rep replied that would also kill the battery. It needed to be charged monthly.
I am a fairly organized person and have monthly tasks -- dog's heart worm pills, cleaning the light switches, etc. But adding charing the pistol vac is not something I want to do. We own this now, so will see how long I can keep it up. But until they fix this issue, unless you have a Martha Stewart type calendar and staff, perhaps best to avoid purchasing.
First, it is very easy to use, just remember to use the little tool to seal the bags, not your fingers, then be sure to press firmly to get a complete seal between the bags and the gun. I keep it on my counter and it doesn't take up much space. This encourages everyone to reseal items after taking out the portion they want.
My experiments have not been wild.
--I have sealed breads, bagels, muffins and they do pretty well except don't bother trying to seal soft muffins (crush) and don't suck all the air you can out else your bread will be literally sucked down to a hard bread cube. This little gun is pretty powerful.
--I tried sealing salad/greens, not taking out all of the air so as not to crush but still had some crush. I will stick to green bags for salad greens.
--I had no problem sealing meats and cooked vegetables and, putting those in the refrigerator for immediate use or freezer for later use.
--However, I sealed some chicken that was sort of fatty and that was not a good cleanup with the bag... I washed with very hot soapy water and decided I should get some of the cheaper bags that work with this model so I can throw out messy bags after one use.
--I put an entire glass covered dish in a bag and sealed, leaving the food in the dish and putting that in a bag, and that worked fine plus minimized cleanup. Of course I did not get out all air that way because there was some in the airspace in the dish.
--I put some carrots in a regular ziplock bag and some sealed by the Vac and compared their freshness and the Vac definitely makes a difference.
--I have not tried sealing liquids but, if I understand this correctly, the way to do that is to put the liquids in a seal bag, freeze it, then seal when frozen. That way no liquid gets sucked up into the machine where it doesn't belong.
--I bought a FoodSaver wide-mouth jar sealer attachment and was real excited about using that to pack and store dry items like rice, cereal, dried fruits and so forth, stacked in mason jars. I was so disappointed. I had read a review by someone that said the FoodSaver jar sealer could be used with this sealer. I tried at least 5 times to seal a jar using this Vac gun and the Foodsaver jar sealer attachment. I tried with one jar lid multiple times and then tried the trick of using two so one would seal and the other would come off with the attachment. I just couldn't do it. I guess this is not such a disaster considering I would always wet-bath seal wet foods such as stew/preserves/vegetables and just wanted this for dry goods which I can put in bags but I do wish there was a jar sealer that worked with the Vac gun.
--I repackaged some of my frozen foods such as peas, corn, berries and so forth. Not only do they store more compactly but I am sure they will stay good longer. Five pounds of frozen blueberries fit easily in a one gallon bag. This time (see photo) I packed store bought berries but the same trick applies to first freeze the berries/veggie first, then bag and seal.
--Last night I realized I was drinking a caffeinated drink and didn't want to finish it, ... I decided to Vac seal it, which my son didn't think I could do, but it worked fine... see photo. Pretty funny, the round can became rectangular, which it still is after I opened it this morning. I think I like it better that way.
I can see us using this item daily. We will have fresher food, less to throw out, and food fitter tighter in the freezer/frig/cupboards. I highly recommend.
