Wanted to ask, I don't own a vacuum food sealer.
Is it possible to cut the bags into different shapes? Say a circle or octagon? Planning on using it for crafts.
In an effort to derail OPs semi retarded thread;
Everyone post your vacuum sealers and how well they work. Iv been looking into getting one but I live in a condo so I dont want something that takes a lot of counter space,.
I've been using one of the early FoodSavor's we bought from Costco and although it works "okay" the new ones that they carry now are better from what I hear. I think OP's pic related is one. They're something you keep stored out of the way until you need it but they aren't huge.
So its less retarded to ask a question that can be answered in the appliances manual than a question of opinion from real people?
I use a Weston 2300 Pro for my food. I have a homemade vacuum machine to do other things.
What is it that you are trying to do. It would help guide you on what equipment to use.

So, an octagon will work just fine. You'll
Vacuum sealers are great.
Learn about Mylar, OP. Mylar bags are light barriers and much better than plastic. Unless you're using UMAi bags to age beef. Mylar might be much cheaper, too.
Check out sous vide cooking, too. Vacuum seals aren't necessary but they still work for it. You can cook literally perfect steaks with sous vide.
