The suction is extremely powerful, for example, it is possible to completely crush an empty can of coke with this Food Saver machine. But for delicate items such as cake decorations, it is possible to use manual mode to remove air at your own pace.

For other less delicate foods, simply press the Automatic vacuum and seal operation.

In Summary we highly recommend the FoodSaver vacuum sealer as a high end, quality home-use sealing machine. It comes at a higher price tag than other home use vacuum pack machines but is worth every penny, given the quality of results, reliability and extra functions. Pulse mode, manual vacuum pumping and a wide sealing strip provide further capabilities above many in this price bracket.
