Review of Walton's 12" Pro Vac Sealer: Excellent

I recently got this vacuum sealer during summer sale. I have used it now for about 30 quart bags. Pics above are some buckboard bacon I sliced tonight with the Walton’s 12in slicer, also recommended.
I absolutely would recommend it at this point. Excellent wide 5mm heat seal, totally leakproof. Very fast. Best of all, basically hands free. I used to have to latch my Food Saver closed, then lean a lot of weight on the lid to get it to suck vacuum. This one, I just close the lid with 2 fingers, no latches, just weight of lid. Hit button, it sucks lid closed and vacuums and seals, releases suction when done. REALLY SLICK AND IMPRESSIVE.
Additionally the vacuum is very strong every time, bags are aggressively sucked down around food completely forming around, zero air left.
I am very happy with this purchase. I researched several alternatives in depth, all have 5 star and 1 star reviews. In the end I went with Walton’s because even if I do get a 1 star product some day, as happens, there was no retailer I trusted as much as Walton’s to treat me fairly and satisfy me if any issues arise.
As a side note in that vein, my order of vacuum bags had some punctures due to unwrapped bacon hooks in same box. I’m sure there weren’t very many bags affected. However, Austin and Jonathon both reached out to me and shipped me a complete new order of bags and spices that day. Fantastic customer service.
Like most of you, I talk to a lot of buddies about my BBQ and meat-projects, and I will absolutely be recommending this 12" pro vac sealer with confidence to them.

Dave in AZ congrats on your purchase I’m glad you them. I bought their cheap vac sealer just to have one in my shop. It has been great I’ve sealed hundreds of bags with it and it’s never missed a beat. I’m impressed by it. Now in about 12 days I’ll get my new 10in. Slicer out of the box and try it for the first time on some buckboard bacon.
Dave in AZ Good choices & great review. Glad you were able to bite on those two great products. I just could not quite afford to bite on them yet, but need to figure out a way. To great products for the arsenal.
I would trust waltons more than any other company. It’s more like dealing with a friend.
Dave in AZ I have that exact model under another brand. Never ever get liquid in the pump system. The actuators that control the holding of pressure will fail to work if you do. I learned the hard way.

Dave in AZ Great review, thanks.
Nice looking unit! Good luck with it.
Dave in AZ Hopefully you bought it during the summer sale and got a good price on it! The Pro 12" is a very good vacuum sealer in our opinion and I know it is sort of a throw-away feature but I really like the Start and Seal button on the handle! Thanks for the review!

pr0wlunwoof Speaking of getting liquid into the pump, I have looked into a bleed off canister with the incoming tube to be low and the suction tube to be high in the canister to avoid it going straight into the pump. I haven’t done anything with this yet but
Has anyone else tried this? This comes into play for me when I use the accessories hose and vacuuming Kerr jars of kraut for long term storage in the fridge.
