or ripples on the panels of the open

Hints for best vacuuming performance
1. Do not put too much food inside the
bag, leave enough empty space so
the operating process is not
2. Do not wet the open end of the bag.
Wet bags may be difficult to melt
and seal tightly.
3. Clean and straighten the open end
of the bag before sealing the bags.
Make sure there are no wrinkles or
creased lines on the open panels, as
foreign objects or creased bags may
be difficult to tightly seal.
4. Do not leave too much air inside the
bag. Press the bag down to allow
extra air to escape from the bag
before vacuuming it. Too much air
inside the bag increases the vacuum
pump loading and may cause the
motor to have insufficient power to
draw away all the air inside the bag.
5. Do not vacuum seal objects with
sharp points like fish bones and hard
shells, as sharp points may
penetrate and tear the bag.
Preparing food for the freezer
6. For the best sealing effect, it is best to
let the appliance cool down for 1
minute before using it again.
7. Wipe off any excess liquid or food
residue left on the Interface after each
bag package.
8. If the vacuum has not been created,
the vacuum system will shut
automatically after 30 seconds. If this
occurs please check if the bag has a
leak, or the bag was not placed
properly on the appliance.

 Cut the bag straight across with
scissors, just inside of the seal.

Vacuum bag guidelines
Vacuum sealing for the refrigerator
For the busy family, on-the-go meals can
be prepared ahead and vacuum-sealed
in individual servings, ready to heat at
any time.
1. In properly stored conditions, the
vacuum sealer helps you to maintain
the foods freshness. Try to start with
the freshest food possible.
2. Freeze foods which need to hold
their shape or are fragile in nature,
then vacuum seal in a vacuum bag
and return to freezer.
3. To vacuum seal liquid-based foods,
such as soups, casseroles or stews,
first freeze them in a baking pan or
tempered dish. Next, vacuum seal,
label and stack in your freezer as
soon as they are frozen solid.
4. Blanch the vegetables by cooking
them briefly in boiling water or
microwaving them. Then allow them
to cool down, and vacuum seal in
convenient portions.
5. To vacuum seal the foods that are
not frozen, allow two extra inches of
bag length to allow for expansion
while freezing. Place the meat or fish
on a paper towel, and vacuum seal
with the paper towel in the bag. This
will help to absorb moisture from
the foods.
6. Before storing the foods such as
tortillas, crepes or hamburger
patties, use wax or parchment paper
between them to stack the pieces.
This makes it convenient to remove
some of the food, reseal the rest and
immediately place them in the

Preserving the bags
 Wash the bags in warm water with a

before re-using them.
 Bags can be washed on the top rack in
your dishwasher by turning the bags
inside out. Stand the bag up so the

or greasy foods can’t be re-used.
Storing your vacuum sealer
Nothing happens when pressing
the vacuum sealer
 Make sure the power cord is correctly plugged into the electrical
outlet and in the “on” position. Test electrical outlet by plugging
in another appliance, if it is not working, please check the circuit
breakers or fuses in your home.
 Check power cord and plug, make sure they are not damaged in
any way. If damaged, do not use the vacuum sealer.
Air is not removed from the bag
 To seal properly, the open end of the bag should be resting
entirely inside the vacuum channel area.
 Check the sealing strip and gasket beneath the lid for debris and
position. Wipe clean and smooth them back into place.
 The bag may have a hole. To test, seal the bag with some air in it,
submerge in water, and apply pressure. If bubbles are present it
is an indicator that there is a leak and a new bag should be used.
 Check if the lid is completely latched into place.
Vacuum sealer bag loses vacuum
after being sealed.
 Wrinkles, crumbs, grease or liquids may cause leaks along the
seal. Reopen the bag, wipe the top inside of the bag and smooth
it out along the sealing strip before resealing.
 Check if there is moisture or juices from the food present within
the bag, you may need to cut open the bag and reseal it, or use
an entirely new bag. Foods with excess liquids should be frozen
before vacuum sealing.
 Items with sharp edges, may have punctured the bag, and
released the vacuum. Cushion sharp edges in the contents of the
bag with paper towels.
