The 7 Best Chamber Vacuum Sealers
This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in January of 2019. If you hunt, fish, or buy food in bulk, you should invest in one of these chamber vacuum sealers. They remove more oxygen than traditional suction-style models, which helps to preserve freshness longer and prevent air pockets from forming. Their powerful pumps maintain an even pressure, so the bags won't collapse or allow any liquid to escape, making them especially handy for sous vide cooking.

We decided to move somewhat away from purely commercial-grade machines with large footprints and even larger price tags, and the Avid Armor USV32 is the best mid-size option we found. In fact, for a dry-piston pump model designed for home use, it's remarkably capable, and not terribly loud. Its smaller relative, the Avid Armor USV20, is nearly as useful, and has an attachment for vacuum-sealing external containers. If you do want professional-grade quality, the VacMaster VP215 is the most premium choice, and the Waring Commercial WCV300 is just about as good and a touch less expensive.

The VacMaster VP215 is quiet but powerful, and its oil pump doesn't need to cool down between bags, making it ideal for commercial use. It does require occasional oil changes, but the process is quick and easy. From the same line, the VacMaster VP210 offers similar features, but it has a dry pump that doesn't require any maintenance. Both models create a strong and reliable double seal on each bag.
At just 25 pounds, the Waring Commercial WCV300 is the most lightweight model by far, meaning you won't have to dedicate a space on your counter or invest in a rolling cart to move it around. However, the small size also means it can only accommodate items up to 2.5" tall. The PolyScience 300 Series is a versatile unit that lets you create three customized preset buttons, so you can program frequently-used settings to save time. The control panel is a bit more complex than some others, so it may take a little longer to learn how to use.
For butchers, restaurants, and other high-volume applications, the VacMaster VP330 is a huge time saver. Its chamber is 7 inches deep, so it can accommodate roasts and other large cuts of meat, and it has a 27-inch seal bar on the front and a 12.5-inch seal bar on each end, which gives you the option to process several smaller bags at once. However, it's probably too expensive for most home cooks.
