  1. It looks like there might be some kind of coating on the pan as that temperature for such a short time to have that result is strange. The pan's thickness might also be at play here. p p
  2. Yes of course, I meant that the "standard" width is 12 inches p
  3. Product website: https://www.lemproducts.com/product/maxvac-pro-chamber-sealer/all-vacuum-sealer-products Amazon reviews: https://www.amazon.com/LEM-Products-MAXVAC-Vacuum-Sealer/product-reviews/B009SJBOVI/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_viewpnt_rgt?filterByStar=critical&pageNumber=1 Pros - oil pump - dual seal bar - price Cons - weight - only accepts 10 inch wide pouches p

    A thought while the electrician was there - 220 volt socket - you'll never know if you'll ever need/use it. p
  6. Compared to my VP112 Less weight, no need for fussy two handed opening Only accepts 12" X 12" bags vs 12"W x 14"L 4.7 inch vs 5 inch chamber height Cheaper price stateside, wonder what that will equate in $CAD p
  7. I wonder if the recipes could be easily adapted to the CSO p
  8. I'd worry about storing with oil in it as it doesn't seem to have some kind of airtight cover (bugs etc) p
  9. Usually the shoe is on the other foot or in culinary terms the souffle never rises. p
  10. Zehrs (Loblaws) here in Orillia has a decent seafood department and as it's a supermarket their prices are as well p

    Re killing pests - probably, but you realize that they'll still be there, just dead 👅 p
  13. To get an impregnable seal the area to be sealed must be clean and dry. Amazon US sells a Vacmaster multi-ring stand for $68.23 USD - I can't imagine the price in CDN dollars - mind you it comes with a "prep stand".😛 Cheap (free) substitute - cut a 1 litre plastic bottle so that it is wide enough to accommodate the food and the other end small enough to fit the bag you are using. Not to be snobbish but I find the Perrier 1 litre bottles ideal for this. You can either wash or toss as it was free to start with. I'm sure everyone is aware of this - items that are opened, sealed, used and the re-sealed (cheese blocks) - use a large bag so that there is extra space at the top to re-seal. Anyone else with hints not covered in the manual?
  14. Pot rack over island and on top of cabinets p
