Using your Baumatic vacuum-packer
Before switching on
o Make sure that it has been installed by a suitably qualified
person, as per the information contained in Baumatic’s
installation instructions.
o Before using the appliance, it is recommended that you clean the
vacuum chamber and lid using a soft cloth which has been
dampened with tap water. Do not use strong detergents, steel
wool, scrapers or abrasive substances, acids or other such items
which could permanently damage the internal surfaces of the
vacuum-packer.
Storing vacuum-packed products
o Products which have been preserved by vacuum-packing can be
stored for considerably longer.
o They can also be cooked at low temperatures using a steam
oven which offers numerous advantages, the most important
being their nutritional properties and the food flavours which
remain unaltered over time.
o Vacuum-packing promotes the concentration of herbs and spices
and aids the diffusion of flavours, the penetration of salt and the
permeability of liquids, therefore vacuum-pack cooking means
using fewer herbs, spices and salt etc.
o Please consult the suggested storage times for various foods
listed below. These storage times are purely indicative and
depend on the initial quality of the stored product, the
storage temperature, cooling times of cooked foods and
on the level of vacuum achieved as well as the quality of
the vacuum-pack bags used.

Loading the vacuum-packer
o The food should be previously prepared inside the special
vacuum-pack bags (for cooking or preserving), or inside rigid
vacuum-pack containers (“vacuum-pack boxes”).
o The bag or container should be positioned inside the vacuum
chamber where the evacuation of the air takes place and, in the
case of vacuum-pack bags, they are sealed.
Tips on vacuum-packed food preservation
Do not attempt to use the appliance to preserve foods which
are already past their best or impoverished from a nutritional
point of view. The lost quality cannot be regained.
o Foods which are kept for too long at room temperature or that
have only just finished being prepared or cooked lose humidity,
their initial qualities (colour, odour, flavour etc) and are more at
risk of bacterial contamination.
o It is advisable to only vacuum-pack products which have
been cooled in the fridge for long enough to ensure that
they are at a temperature of 3°C. This will also help
protect the pump from oxidising.
o If you use vacuum-pack bags for preserving raw or cooked food,
remember to distribute it evenly to facilitate the evacuation of
air and not to fill them excessively as this could affect the seal.
o Always fill the bags with the product to about 2/3 of their
volume.
o It is preferable for fruit and vegetables, once washed, to be
dried in order to avoid the stagnation of liquids which could
cause them to become flaccid.
o In order to preserve meat for a reasonably long time, remember
to cool it in the fridge for at least two hours to slow down the
spread of bacteria.
o Before vacuum-packing meat, dry it in order to obtain a good
percentage of air evacuation. In the case of meat on the bone,
for instance cutlets, chops or other cuts, cover it with aluminium
foil in order to avoid the bag being perforated.
o To vacuum-pack fish, first it is necessary to wash it well,
eliminate the scales, gut it and remove the gills. Dry it as for
9
meat and cool it properly before vacuum-packing. Keep it in the
fridge at a temperature of not more than 3°C.
o For hard cheeses, such as Parmesan, Pecorino etc. it is not
necessary to undertake any special procedures. For soft
cheeses, in order to avoid them being squashed, it is a good
idea to wrap them in cellophane or to opt for preserving them in
vacuum-pack containers.
o For salamis and for salads, if you use vacuum-pack containers,
it is not necessary to undertake any special procedures. If you
do wish to pack the product in bags, make sure it is dry before
beginning to pack it.
o
For sauces, once prepared, pack them in glass jars then
pasteurise them in the microwave for twelve minutes at
maximum power. Immerse the container in water and ice to cool
the sauce then vacuum-pack it by putting it into the special
vacuum-pack container.
10
Turning on the appliance and setting a vacuumpacking cycle
Control panel
1) Control buttons
2) LED displays
o Press to select the preserving cycle. The cycle lasts
approximately three minutes. The vacuum inside the
sealed bags, in best conditions, can reach 0.002 - 0.005 bar.
o Once the cycle has started, if the button is pressed again, the
appliance moves directly to soldering the bags.
o Press to select the cooking cycle. The cycle lasts
approximately four minutes. The vacuum inside the
sealed bags, in best conditions, can reach 0.002 – 0.005 bar.
o Once the cycle has started, if the button is pressed again, the
appliance moves directly to soldering the bags.
o Press this button to interrupt the cycle in progress.
o Press to select the short vacuum cycle for containers.
The cycle lasts approximately one minute. The vacuum
inside the container reaches around 0.3 bar.
o If pressed for five seconds, the long vacuum cycle for containers
is activated. The cycle lasts approximately three minutes. The
vacuum inside the containers, in best conditions, can reach
0.005 – 0.010 bar.
11
Switching the appliance on
o Turn the appliance on using the ON / OFF switch located on the
right of the main body of the machine.
o A short beep is emitted which indicates the appliance is in “initial
start-up” mode. This mode is also signalled by all four of the LED
displays switching on simultaneously on the control panel.
REMEMBER: Before touching the buttons, a self-calibration
period of around two seconds must be completed.
Preserving cycles for bags
Preparation
o Open the appliance drawer as far as it will go as signalled by a
stoppage “click”.
o Turn the vacuum-packer on using the ON / OFF switch on the
side.
o Choose a bag depending on the usage (preservation or cooking),
which is adapted to the size of the product. The product should
not occupy more than 2/3 of the volume of the bag.
o Open the lid of the appliance and ensure that the vacuum
chamber is empty and the product to be packed is dry. When
inserting the food into the bag, be careful not to dirty or dampen
the internal part near to the opening in
order to not affect the efficiency of the
seal.
o Position the bag support grill depending
on the size of the product. For small
bags rest on the supports. For larger
bags rest on the horizontal side.
12
o Place the bag on the grill, in a central position on the soldering
bar (A), in order for the open flap to overlap it by around 2 cm.
o When packing liquid products, do not fill the bag more than
half full. Insert the grill into the basin with its support folded
towards the inside. This will form an inclined surface which the
bag with the liquid contents can rest on, which then rests on the
bottom surface.
o Close the lid of the device.
Preserving cycle
This is a forced vacuum level. The air inside the bag is
removed completely. The length of the cycle is
approximately three minutes.
o After following the steps, outlined in the preparation section on
pages 12-13, close the lid pressing lightly on its front and
selecting the preserving button (above) at the same time. This
will begin the preserving cycle.
o When the cycle starts, an acoustic short beep will sound.
13
The cycle proceeds automatically in the following order:
o The evacuation phase is signalled by the LED of
preservation cycle button blinking for around two minutes.
the
o The soldering phase is signalled by the LED of the preservation
cycle button coming on. This phase lasts approximately nine
seconds. A cooling phase will then follow which lasts around five
seconds.
o During the next discharge phase, all the LED displays revert to
the initial start-up mode. The discharge valve is open for
approximately twenty seconds. During this time, the appliance
does not respond to any commands.
o When the vacuum chamber is decompressed, it is possible to
open the lid and extract the sealed bag at the end of the
discharge phase.
o The product will appear closely wrapped and compressed by the
bag. At the end of the cycle, an acoustic short beep is sounded
which indicates that the appliance is now ready for a new cycle.
By pressing the preservation cycle button during the air
evacuation phase, the vacuum-packer will pass to the soldering
phase.
The cycle can be interrupted early by pressing the stop button.
In this case, the vacuum-packer will not carry out the soldering
phase and the chamber will be decompressed.
Please wait for approximately twenty seconds and for the
acoustic signal before starting a new cycle.
14
Cooking cycle
This is a forced vacuum level. The air is removed both from
the food and its internal parts, in such a way as to obtain the
transmission of heat from the outside to the inside of the product in
the next cooking phase in the steam oven. The length of this cycle is
approximately four minutes.
o Once the steps in the preparation section, outlined on pages 1213, have been followed, close the lid by pressing on its front and
selecting the cooking cycle button (above) at the same time. The
cooking cycle will then begin.
o When the cycle starts, an acoustic short beep will sound.
The cycle proceeds automatically in the following order:
o The evacuation phase is signalled by the LED of the cooking
cycle button blinking for approximately three minutes.
o The soldering phase is signalled by the LED of the cooking cycle
button coming on. This phase last about nine seconds. A cooling
phase will then follow which lasts approximately five seconds.
o During the next discharge phase, all the LED’s revert back to
the initial start-up mode. The discharge valve is open for about
twenty seconds. During this time, the machine does not accept
commands.
o When the vacuum chamber is decompressed, it is possible to
open the lid and extract the sealed bag.
15
o At the end of the cycle, an acoustic short beep will sound which
indicates that the appliance is ready for a new cycle.
By pressing the cooking cycle button during the air evacuation
phase, the appliance will pass to the soldering phase.
The cycle can be interrupted early by pressing the stop button.
In this case, the appliance will not carry out the soldering and
the chamber will be decompressed.
Please wait for approximately twenty seconds and for the
acoustic signal before starting a new cycle.
Tips on vacuum-packing bags
o The bags which are used for preserving foods by vacuumpacking and / or for cooking foods are characterised by an
external layer of nylon (barrier layer), which stops oxygen from
passing from the outside to the inside of the bags which
preserves the nutritional properties of the packaged food.
The appropriate bags for the uses described in this manual are:
PA/PE bags for preserving food: The external barrier layer is made
of nylon (polyamide) and the sealing layer inside is made of
polyethylene. They are smooth and opaque and normally have a
thickness of 90 micron. They are indicated for preserving foods and
suitable for contact with food, in line with the legislation in force.
They are not indicated for vacuum-packing cooking techniques.
OPA/PP bags for cooking food: These are different from preserving
bags as their sealing layer is made of polypropylene. They are smooth
and clear and normally have a thickness of 75 – 85 micron. They are
indicated for preserving and vacuum-packing cooking.
o Using this technique, the maximum temperature reached is
100°C for some types of vegetables, while most other foods are
cooked at 60 - 65°C. These bags, therefore, are able to resist
temperatures of up to 100°C.
o Vacuum-pack bags are indicated for packing products which are
not excessively sensitive to being squashed e.g. meat, sliced
meats, hard cheeses, pulses etc. They should be perfectly
sealed, and this can be distinguished by a well-marked sealing
line which has no burn marks.
16
Preserving cycles for containers
Preparation
In all cases where liquid foods are to be vacuum-packed, the
containers can be filled to a maximum of ¾ of their usable
volume.
o Based on the type of container chosen, the corresponding jar
cycle will be set e.g. brief if the vacuum-packing container is
made of plastic which can be squashed or long for the rigid,
professional types.
o The lid of the containers (A) must be sufficiently loosened or
valves (B) must be open in order to enable the air to be
evacuated from the inside.
o Position the container inside the vacuum chamber.
o Close the lid of the appliance.
17
Brief preserving cycle for containers
This cycle can be used for plastic (polycarbonate)
containers. This cycle lasts approximately one minute.
o After following the steps in the preparation section, outlined on
page 17, close the lid by pressing lightly on its front and
selecting the brief preserving cycle button at the same time.
o When the cycle begins an acoustic short beep sounds.
The cycle proceeds automatically in the following order:
o The evacuation phase is signalled by the LED for the brief
preserving cycle button flashing. This phase lasts about thirty
seconds.
o During the next discharge phase, all the LED’s revert to the
initial start-up mode. The discharge valve remains open for
approximately twenty seconds.
o At the end of the cycle, an acoustic short beep will sound which
indicates that the appliance is ready for a new cycle.
o The basin appears decompressed which enables the container to
be extracted.
o Close the container air-evacuation valve quickly in order to avoid
air coming back into the container.
The cycle can be interrupted early by pressing the stop button.
18
The vacuum obtained by this cycle is around 80% of the
vacuum which can be reached and is suitable for plastic
containers and not intended for professional use.
Long preserving cycle for containers
This cycle is used for rigid and resistant forced vacuum-pack
containers (e.g. made of thick glass, vacuum-pack
containers for professional use). The cycle lasts approximately three
minutes.
o After following the steps, outlined in the preparation section on
page 17, close the lid by pressing lightly on its front and
selecting the preserving cycle button (above) at the same time.
Hold the button down for five seconds to activate the longer
cycle.
o When the cycle starts, an acoustic short beep will sound.
The cycle proceeds automatically in the following order:
o The evacuation phase is signalled by the LED for the preserving
cycle button flashing. This phase lasts approximately three
minutes.
o During the following discharge phase, all the LED’s revert to the
initial start-up mode. The discharge valve is open for about
twenty seconds.
o At the end of the cycle, an acoustic short beep will sound which
indicates that the appliance is ready for a new cycle. The basin
appears decompressed enabling the container to be extracted.
o Close the container air-evacuation valve quickly, in order to
avoid air coming back into the container.
19
The cycle can be interrupted early by pressing the stop button.
The vacuum obtained by this cycle is around 100% of the
vacuum which can be reached and, consequently, is only
suitable for very resistant and thick plastic containers or those
made of glass or stainless steel.
Tips on vacuum-packing containers
o The vacuum-pack containers which are available in the shops are
usually made of transparent plastic, designed for domestic use at
non-professional levels of vacuum-packing e.g. around 80%
absolute vacuum.
o The lids of these containers are equipped with a special valve,
which is used for evacuating the air.
o These containers are used both for preserving foods that are
sensitive to being squashed and for preserving liquid foods.
They should not be used for vacuum-pack cooking
techniques.
o In order to avoid breakage or the excessive deformation of these
containers by the high levels of vacuum reached, the appliance is
equipped with a special working cycle, which automatically stops
the air evacuation at a vacuum level which guarantees the food
is well preserved and which also maintains the integrity of the
container at the same time.
o If, on the other hand, you have highly rigid containers available,
made of stainless steel or glass, which are able to resist the high
vacuum, levels reached, it is possible to set the longer cycle.
The following types of containers can be used:
Plastic, domestic-use with a valve in the lid
Professional with a valve on the lid e.g. “GreenVac”
Glass jars with lids which have seals e.g. “Bormioli”
Pans or dishes with special lids for vacuum-packing.
20
Stopping a cycle in progress
o By pressing the stop button, an acoustic signal will
warn you that the cycle will be immediately
interrupted. In this case, the appliance will not carry
out the soldering phase and the chamber will be decompressed.
o After the discharge phase all the LED’s will revert to the initial
start-up mode.
Cleaning and maintenance
WARNING: PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR
APPLIANCE IS DISCONNECTED FROM
YOUR
MAINS
SUPPLY
BEFORE
ATTEMPTING TO CLEAN IT.
o Do not clean the appliance by pouring water onto it or spraying
water over it.
o Clean the containers separately with soap and water.
o Do not use abrasive products, detergents or soaps. Do not
scrape the surface with sharp objects.
o After washing the appliance, wipe over the area that you have
cleaned with a damp cloth and then dry it carefully and
thoroughly.
Cleaning the external surfaces
o The external surfaces of the vacuum-packer are made of
stainless steel and should be cleaned with a soft cloth or a
sponge and neutral detergent.
o After cleaning it is advisable to protect the external surfaces with
specific oil-based products for stainless steel.
During cleaning do not remove the matriculation plate. It
provides important information on the device for the service
centre.
o The control panel has “soft-touch” commands that do not use
protruding buttons. Therefore, an appropriate cleaning product
for glass surfaces is suitable for cleaning the control panel. Use
a soft cloth with only a little detergent and carefully dry.
21
Cleaning the vacuum chamber
o In order to guarantee the hygiene and quality of the packaged
food products, internal cleaning of the vacuum chamber should
be undertaken after each use.
o The shape of the chamber enables fast cleaning. The use of a
soft cloth or non-abrasive sponge is recommended and a
neutral detergent.
Cleaning the glass lid
o It is recommended to clean the glass lid after each use. Use a
soft cloth or non-abrasive sponge which has been soaked in tap
water or a specific glass cleaning product.
Cleaning the soldering bar
o On a monthly basis it is recommended to clean the surface of the
soldering bar in order to remove residues that could affect the
bag sealing quality.
o In order to do so, lift the soldering bar (A) upwards and extract
the two screws (B).
22
o Clean using a soft cloth or non-abrasive sponge and a neutral
detergent.
o When finished, insert the bar into the two screws (B) centering
the two holes on the lower part of the bar and ensuring that it is
correctly inserted.
WARNING: Do not remove the black Teflon strip. Do not use
scrapers or abrasive utensils.
o When cleaning is complete, dry your hands and then reconnect
the plug to your mains supply.
o If it should not be used for a long period, it is wise to clean and
disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply.
Dehumidifying the pump oil
The main element of the vacuum-packer is the vacuum pump. Steps
should be taken to ensure that the pump does not oxidise on its
internal surfaces and consequently cause a blockage of the rotors. This
can occur due to residues of rust, which are formed when water
vapour is drawn in with the air, which then condenses and remains
inside the pump for long periods of time. To prevent this happening
you can:
1) Vacuum-pack products when they are cold, possibly at a
temperature of 3 – 4°C. The hotter the product, the
shorter the preservation and the greater the formation of
condensation inside the pump which can cause rust and
damage.
2) If this device is only used occasionally, before packing the
products, run at least two – three complete long
preservation container cycles with the chamber empty.
This enables the temperature of the pump oil to reach the
right level and the water vapour to be evacuated.
It
is
recommended
that
you
undertake
a
dehumidifying cycle of the pump oil once a week by
pressing the preserving cycle button for five seconds.
If the appliance is switched back on after a long period of
inactivity the dehumidifying cycle should be carried out
before the appliance is used. The cycle lasts approximately
twenty minutes.
23
Baumatic Ltd declines any responsibility for work carried out on
the appliance which is not in line with the instructions reported
in this manual.
Signals and warnings
Pump oil substitution warning
o The vacuum-packer is equipped with a high-performance
vacuum pump, which is lubricated by special oil, designed for
this appliance.
o During the use of the vacuum-packer, the oil undergoes normal
deterioration due to the absorption of impurities and liquids.
o In order not to compromise the performance of the appliance, it
is necessary to undertake an oil change every 2500 cycles, which
equals around 150 hours of usage.
o The appliance will signal when an oil change is required as all the
LED’s will flash and a long beep will sound.
WARNING: The oil change must only be carried out by an
authorised service engineer.
Insufficient vacuum signal
o The vacuum-packer is installed with a mechanism which reveals
the level of vacuum reached inside the chamber and monitors
whether the appliance is working as it should be.
o If the minimum level of vacuum (350 millibar pressure inside the
chamber) is not reached after around one minute, the cycle is
automatically disrupted.
o The appliance signals the fault through the stop button flashing
for approximately twenty seconds along with an acoustic signal.
o The signal stops when a new cycle is activated. If the cause is
not remedied, the signal will repeat.
o If the insufficient vacuum signal should occur, check that the lid
is properly closed and the seal is properly inserted.
24
o If the fault persists then call the Baumatic Ltd Customer Care
Helpline.
WARNING: Do not attempt to repair or adjust the appliance
yourself. It could be dangerous and affect your guarantee. Only
authorised and qualified technicians should be entrusted to do
so.

positioned inside the unit.
be
o The appliance is supplied with special
brackets to fix the container to the
inside of the compartment.
o It should be fixed first to the two
sides of the compartment using eight
4.5 x 16 wood screws for each side.
o Then the container should be
inserted as far as it will go and
blocked using four self-tapping 4.2 x
13 screws.
o It is recommended that you don’t position the appliance in closed
rooms at high temperatures with little air circulation, in direct
sunlight or with other atmospheric agents or near heat sources.
o When choosing the position for the appliance, ensure that there
is enough space to completely extract the drawer to its full
potential which is around 510 mm.
o You should also consider the working space needed when the
drawer is open, bearing in mind that the user is in front of the
appliance.
30
The power cable is 150 cm long and due to problems connected
with overheating, it is not possible to use extension cords to
lengthen it. Bear in mind the position of the sockets when
locating your vacuum-packer.
Installing the appliance into a housing unit
o Please use the above diagram as a guide when fitting the
appliance into a housing unit.
o With the help of the Plexiglas template, mark the fixing points
for the screws on the two internal sides of the compartment.
o Line up the template with the front corner of the compartment
and mark the points on the front part of the eyelet as shown
below:
31
o Fix the blockage brackets on the two internal sides of the
compartment using eight 4.5 x 16 screws for the chipboard
panels.
o The brackets must rest on the horizontal surface and be
vertically aligned with the two sides of the unit.
o Place the appliance on the horizontal surface and insert it 5 cm
from the edge of the unit.
o Cut the strip and slide it off the compartment. Immediately
afterwards, push the appliance in until it reaches the back of the
unit being careful not to open the drawer.
32
o The appliance must be central within the compartment.
o Open the drawer to around 15 cm and screw the device to the
blockage brackets using the four self-tapping screws that are
supplied, using a short Phillips cross screwdriver.
o If you have not attached the door, first proceed with the two
lower screws which can be tightened with the drawer closed.
33
Only extract the drawer completely after fixing the appliance
into the unit.
o In order to fix the door, put the seal included with the vacuumpacker between the appliance panel and the door, inserting it
between the upper edge of the vacuum-packer and the door.
Neither glue nor adhesives are necessary.
o The working room temperature should not be greater than 35°C.
Above this, the performance of the appliance is not guaranteed.
34
Final checks
Before switching the appliance on, it is recommended that you carry
out the following checks:
o If the vacuum-packer has been transported in a nonvertical position e.g. on it’s back, or it has been
tipped during installation, check the level of the oil in
the pump using the inspection hole.

under guarantee and finds that the problem is not the result of an
appliance fault, then you may be liable for the cost of the call out
charge.
The appliance must be accessible for the engineer to perform
any necessary repair. If your appliance is installed in such a
way that an engineer is concerned that damage will be caused
to the appliance or your kitchen, then he will not complete a
repair.
