Easy to use with multiple sealing settings and the durability of models costing several times its price, the Nesco VS-12 Deluxe Vacuum Sealer is our best overall choice for vacuums sealers. With a straightforward control panel featuring five simple options to choose from (wet, dry or double sealing for more difficult jobs, and either normal or vacuum pressure), this model is perfect for vacuum sealers with any level of experience. It’s powerful enough for your larger portions while the pulse button allows for the manual control of air extraction to precisely suit more unique or fragile vacuum sealing needs.
It has a hidden storage area for a full roll of sealing bags (comes with two full starter bags in two sizes) as well as a cutting tool for making each bag your ideal size. It works with any brand of bags, too, not just Nesco’s. There’s also the option for double air extraction when you’ve got extra large or heavy portions to get sealed. Best of all, it’s a breeze to keep clean and the controls light up when activated so you always know what the machine is doing.
