What We Thought:

We definitely consider the TSM Products 32298 Vacuum Sealer to be a commercial grade sealer. It is made with a durable stainless steel body and it super powerful! No really, we mean it! Not only did it vacuum and seal our plastic bags perfectly, it even vacuum and seals Mylar Bags with ease. If you store food long-term with Mylar, you know just how exciting that is.

This was 2 lbs. of rice that we tested and it was firm as a brick after it was sealed!

The TSM 32298 12” Vacuum Sealer also comes with a port to attach a hose for accessories. We tested it with a Weston brand canister to see if it would work. (see picture below)

In the picture we are vacuuming a spice mixture inside a 1/2 pint mason jar within the canister. We did have to run it through 3 cycles for the jar lid to seal, but were not too surprised since it was a different brands canister.

However, we must say that the TSM Products 32298 12” Vacuum Sealer is remarkable and we sincerely recommend it if you do a lot of vacuum sealing or plan to. For this product, the investment is definitely worth it!

  1. Vaccum sealer saves food. I love my food saver. I also like your post. Thanks for your helpful tips.

  2. I love my
    Best Vacuum Sealer
    . When blueberries are in abundance, I make up pies and freeze them unwrapped. After they are frozen, then I seal them. They keep for a long time and do not get the typical 'freezer burn'. I take them out and cook while frozen. They have the fresh blueberry taste. I only use 1/4 c of sugar and 1/4 c of flour mixed together to about a quart of berries rounded high in the pie pan. Nothing else except the whole wheat crust.

  3. I always plant Contender beans, because they ripen early. My favorite beans of all time are Dragon Tongue beans. They are flat yellow beans with purple streaks. They are tender and tasty, and they hold well on the plant.
    Last summer was a great one for my pole beans. I grew Kentucky Wonder and Blue Lake. Both were quite fruitful and kept setting beans until the first frost.Best Vacuum Sealer
    I usually cook all my colors and shapes of beans together. They're pretty that way

    Thank you for the detailed review. I'm looking for a good vacuum sealer to preserve my harvest.


  5. Although some people might consider chamber vacuum sealers as excessive for the requirements of the home, there are actually several convincing reasons to get them instead of the more lightweight models. They are much more stable and durable, easier to use and can produce more vacuum packed bags. On top of all that, it is a breeze to pack liquids such as juices and wine in them.

    Chamber vacuum sealers are sturdier built and more hefty.

    Due to the fact that these machines are box-like in construction and made of stronger materials, they can withstand more use and can last longer with the proper care. Although you may pay slightly more for them, if you select the model well, you eventually save on repairs and replacements.

    Chamber vacuum packers are made for moderately intense packing activities.

    If your vacuum packing needs are frequent, the flimsier portable vacuum sealers may not serve well. Your best choice will be chamber models which are closer in construction to commercial vacuum packers. These machines often have more than one chamber into which a bag may be placed. In other words, you can process several bags with one motion of your hand. The result of that is having to exert less effort to produce more vacuum packed items.

    Chamber vacuum sealers are able to process liquids as well as solids.

    The suctioning mechanism of chamber sealers is more evenly applied. In fact, the entire area in the box is vacuumed out and not just the bags. Because the force is not done directly on the bag, its contents are not disturbed and liquids can be cleanly packed. In addition to this, the bags are propped up in the chambers so that liquids do not spill out.

    The extent of the vacuum in chamber vacuum sealers can be modified and programmed.

    With these models, you can modify the intensity of the vacuum propagated in the bag. At the same time, the intensities you ordinarily use can be programmed and implemented at the flick of a switch or button. No guesswork is needed and you get precisely the environment in the bag that you desire.

    The results produced by chamber vacuum sealers are more uniform.

    Neither the bag nor the suction power in these devices is manually manipulated. Therefore, across all the vacuum packed items you produce, work is uniformly done. There is practically no chance for error if your first bag is correctly done since conditions will be the same and controlled by the machine for all the succeeding bags. With less chance for mistakes, it is possible to round up things on or ahead of time.

    If you really want to have a good and long relationship with your vacuum sealer, get chamber vacuum sealers. These are built for more work than the lighter models. They are made of sturdier materials and will last longer. And once you master using them, all your vacuum packing activities will proceed uniformly and quickly. At the same time that you do less work, you can produce more bags.

  6. Thanks for sharing this information in detail. Clear each question related to product well. Thanks again.

  7. Hi ! How do you use the vacuum sealer for yoghurt?

  8. I have purchased my first vacuum sealer and trying to use it properly, am yet to master the art of cutting the roll to make the single serving bags, hope to manage it soon. It is actually very trustworthy and keeps even the celery crunchy, to my wonder!

  9. That is attractive impressive! Aside from vacuum sealing review. Vacuum seal bags available in the market that are safe for foods. You can also preserve them and eliminate the odor here is more reviews.
