Good deal on these highly rated chamber vacuum sealers.

Not as good as the 30% off deal from April, but this is close.

Pool your money with family or friends. Get the VP215. Absolute one of the best investments I ever made. I paid full retail $1,000 about five years ago. Deals never existed back then. Used units are no where on the open market. I use mine all the time for everything. People come over to use after bulk grocery shopping, after dehydrating fruits, camping stuff, ammo, trail mixes, anything you can think of. Just wish I could find a sturdy stainless cart with drawers to hold sealer at waist height and the various sized bags, side fold down shelves. These weigh about 80-90 lbs. Castor mobility works best for me in the garage.

Any suggestions on where to find a good deal on bags? I realize they end up being under a nickel bag (which is super exciting), but a deal's a deal--I like to save money no matter what I'm buying (and I'm sure most of the rest of us do, too).

I figure since you've had several years with the unit you have a good idea of what bags work well. In particular, if some work better with liquids, etc--things of this nature. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

I missed the 30% off deal last time, might have to jump on this. I'm just worried about the size and weight. ;d I've wanted a chamber sealer for a long time, I'm so sick of my foodsaver.

I've purchased bags from Vaccuum Sealers Unlimited [vacuumsealersunlimited.com] and they've been great, prices reasonable.

The owner is a sponsor of Smoking Meat Forums, and is very helpful on the phone. They have a sampler pack of 300 bags in 3 sizes [vacuumsealersunlimited.com] that is helpful in figuring out what sizes are useful for you.

Purchasing bags directly from Vacmaster is also reasonable, but you'll have to purchase in quantities of 1000 to get below the 5 cent per bag mark

This is a good price. I just paid $699 from webstrauntstore and I thought it was a good price. They are usually cheaper than anyone else but this is even better. I have been following the price on these things for 2 years now and finally just bought it realizing there isnt much of a sale for these things....then slickdeals proves me wrong.

Anyways, the vp215 works great so far. Just sealed some shrimp in a liquid marinade last night for dinner tonight. I did about 7lbs of bacon yesterday as well and its a perfect seal with no air. This thing kills a Foodsaver. Not cheap but hopefully will last my lifetime.

We've used the vp215 for a few years for sous vide prep in a water oven and don't heat up the kitchen at all. Terrific meals with lower calories. No pots to wash either, just throw away the bags.

Same here. I bought it this past week from Webrestaturantstore also. Received it a couple of days ago and love it so far. It is super heavy at 100 lbs. Although I love it, if I do it again, probably I'll go with the lighter VP112S model for home use. It has a bigger chamber and also has the marinate function which may be useful. It is maintenance free so you will not have to deal with the oil changes. Anyway, this thread is about the VP215 and it's one heck of a machine. Here's a good unboxing review and pictures of the machine.
