Small vacuum sealer - Vacupack Lite?
My FoodSaver, several years old, has finally broken. I'd love to buy a Weston or even a small chamber vacuum sealer, but I do not have the space for it. I am limited to a small machine like my old FoodSaver 1050. Has anyone used a Vacupack Lite? Here is a link to the distributor's description: http://vacupack.com/vacuum-sealers-ho... . I like a couple of things about this, in principle: the channel (where the open edge of the bag goes for air-evacuation) is removable for cleaning; the company seems to know about vacuum sealers; and (notably in the accompanying video) they do not make exaggerated claims for this basic model. And if anyone has other good options for a machine no more than 4.5 inches in height, I'd be very happy to hear them.
I either have this or a very similar model FSFSSL2222-015
The specs say it's 6" tall...when it's open, maybe but not when it's closed. I have been very, very happy with it and seal everything in it. It has the accessory port and I bought the quart jar sealer attachment which I love as well. Sealed up all the food I dehydrated last summer and it's been great to use some, then seal the jar back up. Found both the food sealer and the attachment at a closeout store.
