I've never owned a vacuum sealer. I have always wrapped my big game meat. I would like to buy a vacuum sealer that I can take along on an elk hunt. I have rented a house in the unit that has plenty of counter space for butchering and will be hauling out a seven cubic foot freezer in the bed of my pickup, like usual. The VacMaster 112s looks great, but I need something lighter weight. I'm thinking of buying the Cabela's commercial grade vacuum sealer. Does anyone have experience with that unit? I'm thinking of the 12", and not the 15", wide unit. Does anyone know if generic bag material will work satisfactorily in it, or would I need to buy Cabela's brand bags? I considered the FoodSaver 4840, but heard that after a about five seals, the user has to wait for the sealing part to cool down.
