“The Vac100 is a convenience-featured vacuum sealer, while the Vac110 is the powerhouse of the two.”

A very common question for us to receive is: Which chamber vacuum sealer is best for my packaging needs? The JVR Vac100 or Vac110?”

Today, we will answer that question!

To determine the best vacuum sealer that fits your needs, look at some important similarities and differences between these units.

Vac100 Vs Vac110 Comparison

The Vac100 is a convenience-featured vacuum sealer, while the Vac110 is the powerhouse of the two. While both chamber vacuum sealers are capable of vacuum sealing a variety of food items, they deliver different benefits to users.

Vac100

In terms of convenience, the Vac100 is accessory capable, meaning it can have external functions outside of the chamber. You’ll notice the vacuum port inside the back corner of the chamber (also referred to as the accessory port).

A hose from the accessory port can be connected to external features like the three-gallon chamber, the three-piece canister set, the wine stopper, and VacLok canisters. All these external features in addition to the internal capabilities of sealing in-chamber.

Vac110

The Vac110 chamber vacuum sealer is considered a powerhouse machine because the pump of the unit has double the flow rate of the Vac100, eight cubic meters per hour. A third of horsepower makes this unit quicker, and incredibly powerful. If efficiency and speed are most important to you, this unit will certainly deliver and make vacuum-sealing bags a breeze. This vacuum sealer is perfect for home use while still promoting high-frequency packaging.

Unlike most vacuum sealers, there are ten available programs to set on the Vac100 chamber sealer, in addition to a preset cleanup program.

Cleanup Program

If you seal liquids, products with high moisture content, or operate the machine in a high-humidity environment, water can enter through the vacuum port and mix with the oil in the vacuum pump. At this point, running the cleanup program helps bring the pump to a high temperature, thus expelling moisture out of the pump. 

Programs

The remaining programs can be set to specific vacuum, seal, and cool times. That means you can have presets for each different product you’re sealing. P0 can be set to seal tomahawks in 5 mil VacPouch, and P1 can be set to seal soups in your 3 mil chamber vacuum pouches. These programs help you get product vacuum sealed at a much more efficient pace.

Skip Function

The skip button on the control panel serves a few important purposes. For instance, if you’re vacuum sealing soups, and during the vacuum time you notice the product begins boiling in the chamber pouches, simply press the skip function to move to sealing time. This can help prevent boilovers and messes in the chamber of the unit.

Additionally, the skip function is essential when trying to hone in on the vacuum time of different products. For example, if you’re unsure what to set the vacuum time at for a product, simply set the vacuum time as high as you want and run a cycle. When you see that all the air has evacuated, take note of the time it took to reach that point, then hit the skip button to move on to the seal and cool cycles. Now you know how to set the vacuum time for the next cycle, making the sealing process even more efficient.

The Vac100 weighs 52 pounds, while the Vac110 weighs 77 pounds. With that being said, the Vac100 does have transport handles on the sides, making it easy to move the machine. We do sell a stainless-steel cart that can hold either the Vac100 or Vac110, making transportability even easier. The bottom shelf of the cart can be used to store replacement parts and is a great place for vacuum bag storage. Click here to learn more.
