Product Review: Oliso Pro Smart Vacuum Sealer

The Ranting Reviewer does not get paid or receive any revenue from manufacturers or retailers of products reviewed. I occasionally receive products that I am asked to use and see what I think. I take a look, try them out and tell you all about them.

Today I have the first of two products that I am reviewing from OlisoOliso is focused on a human centered design of their products.

What you see before you is the Oliso Pro VS95A Smart Vacuum Sealer.

Let’s take a look at the main unit. Compared to many vacuum sealers, it is not very big. This is good because it will easily fit into a drawer or cabinet.

The design makes it so there are not many controls that are needed. You can select a dry or moist type of food. For dry foods, the unit will work like any other vacuum sealer. For wet foods, it will sense when moisture is starting to be pulled out with the air and compensates for it. The three lights tell you when the unit is ready, being used and when the seal is complete. Note the Flexi Tube control and port. The Oliso Pro VS95A Smart Vacuum Sealer can handle standard as well as port style vacuum seal bags.

Let’s give it a try.

Here you will see a few shelled lobster tails, butter and some lemon juice. (Look for this in a future post about another Oliso product.

A sealing clip comes with the unit. You are strongly recommended to use it as the most common mistake people use is not properly sealing the bag before starting.

The unit is on and ready. Notice how the Oliso bags have the arrows with circled numbers. The ingenious design of this unit makes it easy to reuse vacuum sealing bags multiple times. Simply line up the arrow with the unit and slide it in.

The unit is automatic. It senses the bag, puts a small hole in the circle and removes all the air. When it senses the vacuum has been achieved, it seals the hole.

This is while it is working.

And done.

These lobster tails are ready to be cooked.

As part of the bottom of the unit is a collection area for liquids. A bit of the lemon juice came through.

Let’s try another item. How about a hunk of meat?

Easy as pie.

In addition to your standard vacuum seal bags, Oliso includes another interesting item. Here is a bottle of the wine I tend to drink more often. Once opened, it can go days or weeks before the bottle is finished. While I put the cork back on, each time a volume of air enters the bottle which can make the wine stale.

Oliso includes this vacuum seal bottle stopper.

I’ve placed it on the top of my bottle.

And connected it via hose to the Oliso Pro VS95A Smart Vacuum Sealer.

Select Flexi Tube to start the unit and all the air goes out of the bottle.

My Take: This is the third vacuum sealer that I have used int he last several years and the Oliso Pro VS95A Smart Vacuum Sealer is by far the most flexible. One did bags you seal yourself. Another used a port exclusively. The Oliso Pro VS95A Smart Vacuum Sealer can go either way. It is simple to use and with the wet and dry settings it is even more flexible. If you have been reluctant to get a vacuum sealer, this is the one you should get. Protect your food in the pantry, fridge or freezer and if you plan on cooking via Sous Vide (a future hint to the next Oliso product I review), you’ll need one. You can purchase it here.

    I have been thinking of getting a sous vide thing someday, so this review is very helpful.
