Geryon E2900-MS Vacuum Sealer
E2900-MS
Both gaskets of the vacuum chamber are removable for cleaning. Catch basin must be cleaned in place. Bottom plate detaches from device for cleaning. Lacks storage for plastic rolls. Includes rolls of plastic for making custom-sized bags but no storage area for the roll. Latches when top is pressed firmly. Control buttons are sealed but operate capacitively, so they are very sensitive to touch. Includes an accessory port and hose for vacuum-sealing special lidded containers (not included).
