|Q. We are considering
purchasing the VacMaster SVP-15
from you and are currently researching bags. As a personal chef
service, we ship our meals and would therefore feel more comfortable
4-mil product. Our clients reheat their meals in boiling water,
which is why we are looking for prices and information on three
4 mil boilable vacuum pouches for the
chamber vacuum system:
doesn't seem to have a variety of choices in the 4-mil. We are
wondering if you sell these size bags in 4-mil.
The sizes in a
bag are as you can see, limited. The
bags should provide plenty of durability, so long as your are
not vacuum sealing fish bones, t-bone steaks, anything that might
poke through the bag with sharp corners.
The SVP-15 is an very good choice
for your application. Please email me personally with any other
questions or concerns at your convenience.
You may also place your order online if you choose to.
|Q. Our foods are reheated
in boiling water. During the course of my research, I realized that
some bags don't boil well. Do yours? Also, one of our meals are BBQ
ribs -- which is my only food concern, due to the bones. How can we
protect that meal from puncturing?
Finally, since we ship our food, we're a little concern over rough
handling by the UPS driver. We're a little nervous with the meals
frozen and packed in one box, the bags could puncture each other.
Personally, I'd like to try the
but my husband is concerned that we'll invest in all that food, make
it, sell it and ship it, then have all of it ruined.
What are your thoughts regarding all the above-mentioned concerns?
Thanks for your help, Dan. We're a fairly new company -- only three
years old -- and we have to make sure all of our investments are
made with thorough research, since funds are limited.
VacMaster Boilable sealing pouch and bag in a variety of
thicknesses designed for this application. They are perfect
for sealing portions in restaurant and catering use and serving hot
after boiling. We offer Bone Guard to protect the pouches from
the food as well. The bags should not puncture each other.
|Q. I was wondering if the
bags available with these sealers have zip lock bags also. And if
so, what is the price compared to the normal bags without the zip
lock. Thanks for working with us.
A. I have heard of it, but we do not have any bags like that
available to you. It is a real specialty item, and can quickly
become cost prohibitive.
I am considering your
Vacmaster SVP-15 Vacuum Sealer for
purchase. My purpose for it would be to seal my handcrafted soaps
which measure 2"x3"x1-1/2". Do you have any bags to accommodate this
size? Or, can you suggest a source? Do you think this would serve my
smallest pouches we have are 6" x 7", 1000 to a box, 2" x 10" 2000
to a box. You could cut the pouches with a box knife and seal them
as needed. That should work quite well for your application.
|Q. I am assuming that I
could put several pouches in the chamber at once. How does it
operate? Do you make a sealed package, then put it in the machine to
remove the air? Is there a heat sealing device on the machine.. how
many step process?
A. The process is simple once you
have done it. All you have to do is put a bar of soap in a
pouch, lay the open end of the pouch over the seal bar and shut the
lid. The machine will vacuum pack and seal the pouch. You will
only be able to do one pouch at a time because the seal bar is 10"
long and would not allow for you to lay two side by side.
Vacuum and sealing time will probably be approx. one minute per
pouch. This machine can be use to vacuum and seal anything that will
fit in the chamber 10" wide x 13" long x 5" deep including liquids.
|Q. Please verify that the
SVP-15 can be purchased with
220volts/50cycles. I await your prompt reply. Owen M.
A. Yes, this is available in a 220
volt/ 50 cycle. Go to the
VacMaster SVP-15 page, and select 220 from the drop down menu to
order. Additionally, you can contact
Homestead Harvest at
your convenience to place your order.
