Why can't I get a seal when vacuum packing

Bigley9 | Jun 10, 201509:55 AM

So I bought a good vacuum sealer - Vac Master pro I think - but it often doesnt seal. It vacuums well goes through the sealing or even extended sealing time but then loses its vacuum because there are gaps in the seal. It seems to related to liquid in the product I am sealing, but most foods have liquid! Can I only seal relatively dry foods? It took me a dozen attempts to seal some barely blanched asparagus last night
