Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

CrushFree Instant Seal protects and seals delicate foods.
The V2244 food vacuum sealer comes with a starter kit so you have everything you’ll need to seal your food in one package, including pre-cut, heat-seal quart-sized and gallon-sized bags; one heat-seal roll of plastic material so you can cut custom-sized bags to hold whatever you need to preserve; and a user manual.
We also really liked that it is super easy to start or stop the vacuum and creep up on the perfect amount, simply by hitting the "Vac/Seal" button to start and stop the pump.
