How do I vacuum seal delicate or soft items in the USV32 chamber sealer?

Vacuum sealing delicate items can be more challenging in the USV32 than when using a traditional vacuum sealer because it does have to pull about a 50-60% vacuum in order to make a seal. Watch the video below for tips on how to accomplish this.

How does the marinating function work?

The marinating feature is a function in which the vacuum sealer will go under a period of vacuum for a 99 second cycle without a seal.We suggest putting your item and marinade in a shallow container (Rubbermaid, glass, etc.) directly into the chamber. Close the lid and start the marinating function. While the chamber is under vacuum, this allows the pores of the meat to open up and infuse the marinade into the meat much faster than a regular marinating process. We recommend repeating the marinating cycle, 3 times.

Can you seal mason jars with the USV32?

Why is there pressure loss with 2 seconds left?

The short loss of vacuum pressure when there are a few seconds left is when the sealer is switching over to the sealing cycle. The sealer uses vacuum pressure to raise the seal bar into sealing position, and then lowers back down when the seal cycle is complete. It is completely normal and how it is designed to function.

Why is there air left in the bag after vacuum sealing?

There could be a number of reasons and can be hard to give you an exact answer as to why there is air left in the bag since there are so many variables when using a chamber sealer.

  1. Try expelling any extra air prior to putting bag in the chamber
  2. Make sure the opening of the bag isn't' being pinched off during the vacuum cycle. Lay the bag flat across the seal bar with the opening tucked behind the seal bar/underneath the black tabs or with the middle tab inside the bag.
  3. Increase your vacuum time
  4. Reduce your bag size
  5. Add filler to the chamber (small wood cutting board, book, etc.) to occupy more space

There is a lot of trial and error to determine what works best for your application.

What does the E1 error mean?

The E1 Error is an indication that the chamber was not able to pull a vacuum and a good seal isn’t forming between the lid and the gasket. After you ensure that the gasket looks to be in good shape, close the lid, press the auto vac and seal button, and then just give a slight press down on the lid. You should see the lid draw down and the vacuum gauge begin to move.
