Minipack Cyclone Vacuum Food Sealers Reviewed

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

Minipack Cyclone External Vacuum SealersWow. Who would have thought that the Minipack Cyclone line of vacuum sealers would be such a hit in just a few short months? If you are considering purchasing an external vacuum food sealer, you may want to seriously consider looking into a Minipack Cyclone. Why? Here are a few reasons.

One of the biggest reasons the Minipack Cyclone is such a hit with individuals and businesses alike can be summed up in two words, “Build Quality.” The stark contrast in build quality in the Minipack Cyclone versus other “Saver” style vacuum sealers is as stark as the difference between plastic and metal.

Minipack products are Italian designed and Italian made. This is the same country that brought us the Ferrari. The Cyclone is the Italian Ferrari of the external vacuum sealer world. Here are a few features found in the Minipack Cyclone:

First off, the Cyclone features a corrosive-free aluminum alloy housing. Why is this nice? Many foods and vacuum sealed products can cause cheaper metals and plastics to corrode, discolor and break down. For sanitation purposes, you want something that is non corrosive.

The control panel is flat, user-friendly and features a digital knobless design. If you have ever used a food-handling device that has knobs, you know how easy it is for food to get trapped underneath. If you are packaging fish, beef and pork, you don’t want those juices festering under knobs and between cracks.

The sealer includes a moisture collecting basin. This helps with food preservation. The Minipack Cyclone creates a 4mm seal width, which is double the 2mm seal width found in many comparable models.

A wide seal width is great to have because it prevents accidents and does a better job of maintaining the vacuum seal. The Cyclone can be used with channel or three-layer bags. The Cyclone also features an automatic cycle and a manual sealing cycle.

We offer the Minipack Cyclone in three different versions, all based on the sealing width.

These three models are:

Best Minipack Vacuum Sealers – Chamber & External

Monday, May 24th, 2010

Minipack Chamber Vacuum SealersLooking for a reliable, high quality vacuum sealer that will stand the test of time? Vacuum sealers have the potential of extending the life of food by up to 3-5 times longer than unpackaged food.These machines can be used to package fruits, vegetables, meat and more.

The motors in vacuum sealers, especially chamber sealers, go through a lot of strain. Many chamber sealers can remove as much as 99.9 percent of the air. A cheap motor can quickly overheat, and after hours of use, can sustain serious damage.  If you are going to be packaging food on a regular basis, you need a sealer with commercial / industrial qualities.

Minipack vacuum sealers, both chamber and external, are considered to be some of the best models available today. These vacuum sealers are Italian engineered and built. The metal casing is extremely durable and the wire sealing components are tough.

One of the most differentiating designs found in the Minipack chamber sealers are the bins. The bins are made from a solid, seamless design, which is ideal for cleanup and sanitation. This makes Minipack chamber sealers ideal for packaging liquids, powders and other materials. We have even had customers use Minipack chamber sealers for vacuum sealing entire chickens.

Here is a list of some of the most popular Minipack models our customers like to buy:

Top 7 Best Vacuum Sealers for Food Packaging

Friday, February 26th, 2010

Chamber-Style Vacuum SealersVacuum sealers are a fast, effective and reliable way to package food. There are a lot of vacuum sealers out there. Which models are best for your home or business? This can be a difficult choice, especially with so many cheap “As Seen On TV” models and sub-par imported designs.

I will give you a few recommendations on vacuum sealers that have proven themselves to be reliable and have a good track record with our Service Department.

First of all, you should be aware that there are two different types of vacuum sealers. These two designs are:

External – External sealers are the most common in-home machines used today. They consist of a bag, used to hold food, with one open end. The open end is inserted into the machine where the air is removed and the bag is sealed.

Chamber – Chamber sealers are used for higher-volume industrial and commercial packaging. Food is placed in a bag, after which the bag is placed in the chamber. Air is removed from the chamber, the bag is sealed and the food is packaged.

These are my top 7 vacuum sealer recommendations based on customer feedback and track record. This includes both chamber and external designs:

  1. Minipack MV 31 VacBasic (Inexpensive. Great for low to medium-volume use. Most popular model sold.)
  2. Minipack MV 45 VacBasic (Wider chamber than MV 31. Great for low to medium-volume use.)
  3. Sinbo DZ-280/2SD (Great for home and small-volume use.)
  4. Minipack MV 65 VacBasic (Great for medium to high-volume use)
  5. AIE-455GA Sealer (Great for medium to high-volume external bag use.)
  6. ACCVACS E1000G (Great for low to medium-volume home use & external bag packaging.)
  7. Minipack MV 50 VacBasic (Great for medium to high-volume use)
