As an avid outdoorsman, I really depend on my vacuum sealer! It is a perfect solution to many of the obstacles I face on a daily basis. Whether it is a requirement to keep my backpack materials dry, or to store fish after an excellent day on the water, there is no substitute. When I was given the opportunity to try the OlisoPRO VS97A Vaccum Sealer, I jumped all over it and let me tell you, I’m wicked impressed!
The Oliso vacuum sealer is a dual motor system with all the power of a commercial product. It has an easy, no touch operation. All you do is fill the appropriate sized bag, insert the bag into the unit and Oliso does the rest! There is an automatic sensor that starts the motor only when the bag is properly aligned. There is also a ‘moist’ or ‘dry’ setting for greater precision in sealing.
It comes with a large, easy clean drip tray, a flexible tube and capping for drawing air out of wine bottles and other containers so you can store dry beans, coffee and other items, a zip disk for proper sealing, a water resistant & rugged carry case, and to boot, a 12 foot power adapter so you can use it in the car, RV, boat, or anywhere else remote. It is small, light, powerful, and is super easy to use.
The Vac-Snap bags are ingenious! I was given bags in three differing sizes. They are reusable and that means Eco-friendly! The Vac-Snap design allows for easy insertion of fish, meat, or whatever and can be resealed after initial use. They are dishwasher safe, and oh, did I say reusable!? Others have stated that the bags are a bit expensive. I would agree except when you factor in, that in most cases, you can use the bags 10 times or more, they are very reasonably priced.
Thus far, I’ve sealed up some nice rainbow trout caught weeks ago and as I had hoped, there is no sign of freezer burn. I’ve also been able to purchase “Family Packs” of chicken, steak and other meats from the grocery store, thereby saving money per pound, and have sealed them in meal sizes for future use. Again, zero freezer burn. As I mentioned before, this is a perfect solution for keeping your backpack contents dry too! I’ve sealed matches and medicines, clean socks, gloves and other items used as backup in case I get wet during a hike. If you are a ‘prepper’, this would be the perfect tool to help you prepare your bug-out-bag! As you could imagine, there are endless uses for such a product.
As I prepare this for publishing, I have offered to give my old vacuum sealer to a friend. It’s better than not having a system, but I’m sold, and I’m keeping my Oliso! It takes up less space in my cabinet. It is lighter. It is powerful. It is dependable! It comes with a manufacturer 3 year guarantee! Thank you to Oliso Inc. and Stripers Online for this opportunity.
