Weston Pro 2300 Review
The Weston Pro 2300 is perfect vacuum sealer both for everyday home use and commercial purposes. It’s a heavy duty stainless steel machine capable of sealing food in bulk mainly due to the large fans it’s equipped with – its performance to maintain sealing without getting overheated clearly knocks the competition down.
This machine stands out with great build quality, performance and reliability earned itself a great reputation. It’s extremely easy to use since it doesn’t come with many fancy additional features so no one should have any difficulties learning to operate this machine. Its task is simple – give the bag a great seal and lengthen the food life several times.
The dimensions of the Weston 2300, which re 15.3 x 23 x 9 inches; 14.4 pounds don’t necessarily make it easy to carry around. But who needs portability if it can seal food without stopping at all? When it comes to performance, this vacuum sealer beats any other competition as a counter-top kitchen appliance. Despite the quite big size of it, it will still fit well in most home kitchens not to mention big commercial ones.
The whole process of sealing is smooth and simple. The only things you need to do to seal a bag, is to 1. Size the bag, 2. Put it into appliance’s mouth, 3. Press start. Then you wait 5-10 seconds, you can watch the LED indicator at that time and voila – your food won’t go bad for a long time now. It’s the ease of this packing machine – 3 easy steps to preserve your meal. However, it doesn’t have any external nozzle to seal bottles, jars or plastic containers, so if the only things you want to seal are bags, it will be a great choice. This is the main drawback of this machine, however everything depends what purpose you want to use it for. It works well on auto settings with Weston vacuum bags and it’s certainly doing the best job at sealing dry meat. While sealing wet items it can be useful to put the meat in the bag on a paper towel. Doing this trick will prevent the Weston Pro to make stuff more watery and it’s also good to use bigger bags for that. The heating bar is fairly big, it’s much wider than the other competitor’s and it makes the seal better quality followed by wasting less bags
The solid stainless steel build and large cooling fan sets this sealer apart from other similar machines. What’s more, it’s made in Taiwan instead of China and it’s well designed – it will blend in almost every kitchen.
This pretty machine comes only with 1 year limited warranty, which covers all components of the appliance. There are also replaceable spares available on the market, however most likely it will last few years without any repairs. Despite all that, it should have more than only 1 year of warranty and that’s why we lowered the rate of this sealer by 1 star.
Maintenance and price
This vacuum sealer doesn’t require systematic maintenance and you won’t experience any extra unexpected expenses. It comes with Weston Vac Mesh bags which price is comparable to other brands. It doesn’t get overheated due to the fan running at full speed. The price of this sealer is reasonable taking into advantage its great ability to maintain continuous sealing without getting on fire and its build quality.
The Weston Pro 2300 is powerful semi-commercial grade sealing machine for food and might appear as a great investment – with its affordable price, outstanding performance and great design it’s one of the best external sealers available on the market. Its wide mouth can fit large bags or multiple small ones, the 28 hg pressure ensures solid sealing and what’s more, it is very easy to use and has intuitive indicator LED lights. The only drawback of this packing machine is lack of additional features, like ability to seal jar or bottles and relatively short warranty. However, if you are running a small business or your house kitchen is simply busy, we strongly recommend this product. Click here to check the current price on Amazon
