Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

You get a transparent, acrylic vacuum lid on top that lets you see what’s going on and allows you to accurately maneuver and adjust your bag before starting the sealing process.
The Weston is definitely on the speedier side, taking less time than the average to seal the bread, the rice, and the sausages.
This model can accommodate bags up to 15" wide (the standard size is 11").
This stainless steel vacuum sealer is truly the top of its line, and it is a great choice for people looking to invest in a sturdier, more powerful device for their vacuum sealing needs.
The Weston Pro-2300 is a top of the line performer with the power and components for reliable, repetitive use that makes it a smart choice for processing large volumes of food.
- Foodal
This vacuum sealer can be regarded as a great device which works perfectly for preserving and storing recently packed vegetables, fish, meats and other related food products.
As a result, the vacuum sealing process is shorter, while its quality is maintained high.

What reviewers didn't like

One of the limitations of this sealer is its large size, which takes up more kitchen space than many others.
However, this vacuum sealer is exceptionally large, heavy, and is one of the most expensive products we have tested so far, costing five to ten times as much as some of the other products in the review.
The biggest negative of this model is the price at $367.35 it's the highest price model we reviewed and is double the average vacuum sealer.
Unlike your average home unit, which is in most cases made out of high-quality plastic, the Weston Pro-2300 is made of stainless steel, and it’s much heavier, making it harder to move around the kitchen.
This is an excellent vacuum sealer despite being a little more expensive than the lesser offering made for home use.
- Foodal
I think it is quite heavier than the old one I used earlier.
In spite of their low price, it can be a hassle to think about which bags you’re allowed to use.
