The Geryon Compact Sealing System B06XSZVJP is a useful, basic vacuum food sealer that can nicely preserve foods for long-term freezing or shelf storage, as well as lengthening the life of foods that need refrigeration such as cheese.
At 5.4 inches long, 14.6 inches wide and 2.5 inches high, this truly is a compact vacuum food saver, and it is lightweight at only 2.2 pounds. Known by its full name as the Geryon Compact Automatic Vacuum Sealing System B06XSZVPJM, this is an easy-to-use appliance. You simply prepare and bag the food you want to preserve, slip the open end of the bag into the front of the opened machine, push down with both hands to hear locks on two sides click shut and then press a button.
You can vacuum seal a bag by pushing that button, or you can simply seal a bag of some kind of food that you simply want to close without removing all the air inside. This works well when preparing meat, fish, vegetables and other foods for freezing, and you can store dry items such as oatmeal or beans. This works quickly with simple sealing taking only six to 10 seconds and vacuum sealing extending for 10 to 20 seconds. The area on the machine that heat-seals the bags closed can fit a bag up to 12 inches wide, and you can use quart- or gallon-sized bags.
Unlike many name-brand vacuum food sealers that work well only with their particular bags, the Geryon Compact Sealing System lets you use any brand of bags, which is a real benefit. This could save you plenty of money in the long run since you have the freedom to shop around and purchase bags when they’re on sale. You also can make bags using rolls of special plastic sealing material, and again, any brand will do with this machine.
This comes with a starter kit that provides five heat-seal bags measuring 7.8 x 11.8 inches, and a roll of plastic bagging material that totals 7.8 inches wide and 78 inches long, so you can create custom bags.
One drawback to the Geryon Compact Sealing System is the fact that this is not designed for use with a vacuum hose. Some top-notch vacuum food savers have a port and a hose that you can use to vacuum seal glass canning jars, canisters or containers of foods. However, the Geryon Compact Automatic Vacuum Sealing System B06XSZVPJM is an affordable, space-saving and helpful vacuum food saver that can handle any brand of bag and preserve food well.
