    Yes, I do, heaps easier for camping, no need to run a freezer, no icky fluid spills in the fridge etc

    That machine looks very similar to one of mine (at least 4 years old now) and that vendor is an excellent Ebayer who I purchase gear from quite often.

    Have never owned one, but I can see the benefit.
    On a side note, MOST of my car elec goodies came from that shop, including UHF units antennas etc... Always top service and price!

    I use one all the time, they are great imho, an unexpected bonus was food that has been cryovaced takes up less space in the fridge.

    Mate of mine usually cooks up meals at home (curries / stews) etc and cryovacs and freezes them, when camping he just reheats them in a pot of water on the fire... He eats like a king when we go camping... I hate it as i am usually stuck with snags in bread. lol

    We bought one a few months ago & I spent a bit of time looking at the different makes available. autolecau is a good seller, & Iím sure that vacuum sealer is ok, but I think you can get a better deal. Luvelo have a good reputation in this price range & thatís what we bought.

    When you take into consideration the cost of bags this is good value. We are pleased with ours. The ability to determine the level of vacuum can be quite useful, depending on what you are packing. Not all have that manual control.

    We bought a Kogan version, pretty cheap but seems to work really well.
    The missus got it so she could send my lad homemade biscuits when he was serving in Afghanistan.
    The biscuits would take about 6 weeks to get there, we kept some here and opened them at the same time as he received them and they were great.
    My lad reckons my missus was the favourite Mum of the platoon, she sent plenty to share every couple of weeks!!
