Which vacuum machine is right for you?

After years of vacuuming, our experts have put together a clear selection of vacuum sealers that fit different budgets.

Most economical choice: Ziva SlimTouch vacuum sealer

Ziva SlimTouch (externe) vacuümmachine

Seems deceiving because this compact vacuum machine delivers good results at a low price. The quality of the machine is excellent and lasts a long time. The only "disadvantage" is that you have to press the lid on for the first 3-4 seconds during the vacuuming process (after that it goes automatically). More expensive machines often have a lid with closures that keep the lid closed.

  • Lowest price and yet very reliable
  • Fair vacuum (65%): excellent for sous-vide cooking but less suitable for storage.
  • Reasonable speed (10 l / min): excellent for smaller portions and quantities.
  • Lid must be pressed for first 3-4 seconds.
  • Dimensions LxWxH: 390 x 80 x 55mm
  • Power: 100W
  • Note: only works well with embossed vacuum bags (do not use smooth bags).
