I use a simple FoodSaver 2222 from wally world. Probably the cheapest on the market.
But I needed a “test run” or two with the dryage bags. Getting these bags sealed properly is not too hard but also was not trivial.
I found that it worked best if I repeated the seal twice on each seam location, while applying pressure on the food saver
bar (that holds the bag in place while vacuum sealing). On each of the seams I applied the seal function of the food
saver twice to create a good bond. Between the seal applications you have to release the latch of the food saver and lift the bar, so it
takes a little practice to keep the bag from moving between the two applications.
There is a learning curve to the process.
