There are lots of cheaper vacuum packing solutions available, but non that has the quality and versatility of the Takaje Vacuum Machine. This Italian designed machine provides a multi-functional vacuum packing solution, not only for vacuum bags but also for glass containers using a unique new patented system which extracts the air form both jars and bottles. For bag sealing, the Takaje has a wide 33cm sealing rod which allows you to use larger vacuum pack sizes.
Food shelf life can be extended by 3 to 5 times, so this is a fantastic addition to any keen food smoker's armoury. Particularly useful for preserving hot smoked foods - such as hot smoked salmon - to be eaten later cold rather than straight away or for cured meats such as bacon and pancetta. The Takaje (which sounds Asian but is actually an Italian dialect word loosely meaning 'success') is incredibly easy to use and has a three button display which walks you through the packing stages. Once warmed up the 3 lights glow red and as each process is completed the lights extinguish and the final whoosing sound signals the end of the process. Takes less than 30 seconds.
As well as its larger sealing bar, this machine boasts rapid suction speed, secure sealing and an inner tray whicih protects the unit from excess liquids and is easy to clean. The racy Italian design and choice of three colours is icing on the cake! The Takaje is supplied with a starter pack of 50 Vacuum Bags and 2 Jar Sealing Caps. Takaje containers will be available separately soon. Embossed Vacuum Bags are available separately in 3 sizes.
