Wouldn't work too hard chasing one.

 I bought one after recommendations on here. It was to replace the faithful old Sunbeam which had lasted many years. The Evamatic is incredibly noisy, fairly slow, and I have a lot of fails on sealing unless I go to a lot more trouble than I did with the Sunbeam. Would NOT buy another one. YMMV.

I don't think you will get hold of a Evapack, stricko.

I've heard that Dave from Extreme is no longer importing them.

Aldi have Ambiano Vac Packer

Fri, 2020-03-20 12:57

And having finally unpacked it yesterday after my trusty Sunbeam started playing up let me say that it is far far easier to use than the Sunbeam, does a super quick and complete vacuum and seal looks brilliant.   and a lot cheaper than a Sunbeam but with a good guarantee, never thought I would say that about an Aldi product !

 I recently bought a Proline commercial grade machine and it's a cracker. Super fast and double heat seals, stocked up on bags from pac food.

 Good day mate. Staff member

 Good day mate. Staff member Justin had a evapack and it died on him two months ago.

He bough the new sunbeam food save and says its the best hes used with the bonus 12v option he can vac pack on the boat or in the car if away camping. We do have one left on the shelf if you would like to have a look at it plus you will get 10% off.

Hope this helps you out
