Just got an email from www.sousvidesupreme.com about a new chamber vacuum sealer they have. The price is still high ($800) but less than other models that I've seen. I'm going to save my pennies for now and hope it drops substantially in the next two years.

Gerard,

I looked at the one both you and Paul linked to, and I wasn't really all that impressed with it. It looks kind of flimsy relative to their other models. I bought this one which is a smaller version of the one we use at work.

The problem, for me, with the 210 is that I can't really deal with its size/weight. The smaller one I can put on a slide in a cabinet without losing all my space. I'm hoping to see a few reviews to see how well it works; I know for sure it is lighter duty, but it might "do". Well, at a lower price point. Ugh. We need a new player...

I know what you mean Paul, but compared to the 320 (what we use at work), the 210 looks downright small! I too don't have the counter space for it, and I'm looking for just the right stainless trolley so it can eventually live in my pantry. Right now it's sitting on a milk crate next to my island. Not aesthetically pleasing, but works.

So, I expect to be in the position to buy a new chamber vac in a week or three (yay, contract looks like it will be renewed!). Have you been giving the 210 a good workout, and how happy are you with it? I'm tossed up largely between it and the 112 --- 112 has the vac port and wider capacity, but I don't *think* you could fit even small mason jars in it, but I understand the 210 can take 8 oz jars? OTOH, the 112 has the vac port if you don't mind doing a jar at a time ... oh, decisions, decisions.

Love, love, love the 210. Highly recommend it. And, the trolley I bought is perfect for moving it out of the way into the pantry.

I've not done jars. How is this supposed to work?

Sorry for the long response. Life took over for a bit. I've experimented with my VP210 (yay!) with jars and it works great. I put the lid on loosely; the air escapes during the vac phase and when it is let back in it seals. Tighten down and you get a vac'd jar. This is two part lids of course.

You got the 210! Isn't it amazing? I'll have to try jars at some point this summer. Thanks for the info.
