Email from the people at SVS this morning. Chef model plus their vaccum packer for US$449. Free shipping in the lower 48.

BLACK FRIDAY WEEKEND SPECIAL! This professional grade model is reduced to only $449 plus receive aFREE SousVide Supreme Vacuum Sealer! Enter Promo Code SOUSVIDE during checkout. US/Canada orders only. Ends Nov. 26, 2012.

Thoughts? I've used their water oven with good results but had no experience with their vac sealer. Does it use any bags or the foodsaver type?

I have had no problem with any type of sealing bags. It looks to be just a rebranded foodsaver sealer to me.

Well I took the plunge and ordered. UPS didn't want to venture down our (gravel/long/dark?) driveway Friday evening; after waiting the weekend the Water Bath and the Vacuum Sealer arrived as promised. First order of business a pork belly garnish for Tonkotsu Ramen that was dinner. Seasoned, sealed, plonked in the bath at 60C for a couple of hours.

After about 30 minutes this gorgeous pepper/laurel/anise smell filled the kitchen after lifting the lid. Bag was floating -- faulty seal right off the bat. Removed the belly and sealed again (seal only) as the meat was too warm to attempt to vacuum again at this point. Weighted it down an carried on.

Starting 3-day shortribs. Vacuum sealed the bag and then "seal only" three times in different places on the bag. Fingers crossed.
