Older versions of FoodSaver products did not have an option of a removable drip tray. FoodSaver PowerVac Vacuum Sealer comes with a detachable drip tray, which can be easily washed and attached back to its place. This drip tray collects all the liquid that gets sucked into the vacuum sealing duct.

It suctions out all the air from the bag’s front opening completely, it immediately seals the bag, and this entire process is completed within seconds.

What We Like About It?
Buying food in bulk and vacuum seal packing will always save you a lot of money. We bought food items in bulk for nearly a month and stored them in the freezer. This FoodSaver countertop vacuum sealer worked great in packing the foodstuff and preserving them for later use, which resulted in a cost-saving in the future.
Saves the taste of food
As we’ve used this product before providing this FoodSaver VS0150 review, we are impressed by its performance. We sealed packed almost every food item from meat, jerks, seafood, vegetables, and fruits. When we used to unseal the pack after some days and cook the food, the food would taste fresh, and its taste would not change at all.
Great for marination of food
We needed a vacuum food sealer, which would work great for keeping marinated food tacked. Before purchasing FoodSaver VS0150 vacuum sealer, we used to keep marinated meat and veggies in containers, which used to be a hassle to clean up containers. Since seal packing is compact and requires very little space while storing, we could efficiently store more packets, and without any doubt, it is the best vacuum sealer for home use.
Once we opened the package, we thought that we had to use up the entire food stored in it, but that was not an issue. We used up the amount of food we needed and then resealed the bag again and stored it in the freezer. You can effortlessly reseal your food and save the rest of your food without wastage.
What We Don’t Like About FoodSaver VS0150 Sealer?
Having a device with the latest features did cost us a lot. FoodSaver is a renowned brand and provides good and powerful food vacuum sealers. Being the best FoodSaver vacuum sealer, this PowerVac VS0150 offers high configurations. We felt that the PowerVac VS0150 was a bit pricey and not certainly affordable for all types of consumers.
Growth of Bacteria
Since the vacuum sealing entirely removes out all the air from the pack, it becomes home to harmful bacteria. We got some foods tested after we kept them sealed and packed for a couple of days. It resulted in bacteria growth that grows because of no oxygen/air in the packed bag. These bacteria are known as anaerobic bacteria, which could be harmful to health.
Not suitable for crushable food items
We did have a problem when packing foods like chips, wafers, or any crispy textured food items. When we tried to seal pack this kind of food item, the vacuum suction was so powerful that it crushed and broke the food item into pieces. It is not advisable to use this device if you want to pack crunchy/crispy textured food. Rather, use another way of storing them.
