Customer questions and answers for Seal-a-Meal Vacuum Food Sealer/Roll Storage.

Question
Cat. No. 426/1546
1. Is your machine fitted with foam rubber sealing strips on the bottom of the machine and on the lid to seal the bag and are these seals replaceable seals which can be bought ‘off the shelf’ from you?

What is the costs of the bags? Can ordinary freezer bags be used?

2. Is the heating element covered by a Teflon strip? Can a replacement heating element be purchased from you off the shelf and what is its cost?

3. Is your food sealer fitted with a liquid trap which prevents liquid from getting to the pump?

Hi, thanks for your question.

I have checked with the manufacturer and can confirm that this vacuum sealer is fitted with a Teflon coated sealing strip (not foam rubber) that protects the bags from the heating element. I am sorry but ordinary freezer bags are not recommended for use with this sealer, and Argos do not sell replacement bags, heating elements or sealing strips.

The manufacturer has confirmed that this vacuum sealer has a removable drip tray that stops liquid from entering the motor.

Thank you for using Question and Answer.
