Chamber Vacuum sealer - source in Ontario/Canada? Any recs

ylsf | Dec 14, 201509:15 AM     6

Anyone own a chamber vacuum sealer? I am thinking about buying one for home use. The main thing I do is BBQ/Smoking and it is great to vacuum seal a bunch of meat and then warm up for future meals. I also recently bought a InstantPot and am planning to make meals ahead of time. I currently have a Foodsaver and it can't really handle the larger volumes at a time (machine overheats and needs to cool down) . I am also planning to use it for quick pickling, soups, etc. (my current Foodsaver can't handle liquids).

I am thinking of getting the VacMaster VP215 which is available at Costco- http://www.costco.ca/VacMaster-VP215-... ($1279 CDN)

Found the same model in the USA for $739 with free shipping in the usa but over $130 to ship to my location. With the current poor exchange rate that is over $1000 Cad without shipping . Would have to pay at least HST on importing it too (also would apply to Costco order).

So, long story short, anyone have experience buying a chamber vacuum sealer in Ontario/GTA or experiences importing from the USA? Any other models that people would recommend
