Vacuum sealer Bort BVV-200 to keep food fresh

This review will focus on a device that is most often found in a restau­rant kitchen rather than in an apart­ment, but I rec­om­mend pay­ing atten­tion to these devices, because in terms of price and util­i­ty they sur­pass most oth­er house­hold devices. From the name you could already guess that we are talk­ing about a vac­u­um seal­er from Bort called BVV-200. The mean­ing of these devices is that prod­ucts (and not only) are packed in spe­cial bags, from which air is com­plete­ly removed. And this does not allow the devel­op­ment of any microor­gan­isms that lead to spoilage of food. Let’s talk about every­thing in order now.

Complete set

The vac­u­um clean­er is sup­plied in a card­board box. On the front side of the box there is a mod­el name, a com­pa­ny logo and an image of the device itself, lying next to the veg­eta­bles.

On the side of the box are the tech­ni­cal spec­i­fi­ca­tions of the vac­u­um seal­er. On one side, almost every­thing is writ­ten in Russ­ian, and on the oth­er in Eng­lish. In addi­tion, on the same sides you can see infor­ma­tion about the con­fig­u­ra­tion.

Equip­ment or what is inside the box:

  • Vac­u­umer BVV-200;
  • Man­u­al;
  • Five vac­u­um bags;
  • Plas­tic suc­tion tube;

I note that the vac­u­um clean­er in the pack­age was orig­i­nal­ly in a pim­ply bag.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, there are few vac­u­um bags in the pack­age, so you have to buy more. And I would like to say right away that the instruc­tions say that it is nec­es­sary to use vac­u­um bags with a max­i­mum width of no more than 30 cen­time­ters. Inside the box are bags mea­sur­ing 29.5 x 20 cen­time­ters (L x W).


Vac­u­um seal­er Bort BVV-200 is avail­able in only one col­or scheme. The body is made of good qual­i­ty plas­tic. The device itself is quite small and com­pact, so I store it in a cab­i­net in the kitchen with­out any prob­lems.

The device has a stream­lined shape and round­ed cor­ners. The upper part is made of white plas­tic and the low­er part is gray. In gen­er­al, every­thing looks pret­ty neat.

There are two holes on the top of the vac­u­um seal­er. On the left with a valve (Releas­ing Valve) is made to relieve pres­sure in the device, and on the right (Air Suc­tion), near the “Seal” but­ton, there is an inlet for a vac­u­um hose. It is nec­es­sary if you need to vac­u­um not in a bag, but in a spe­cial con­tain­er.

There are non-slip rub­ber feet on the bot­tom of the device. In addi­tion to them, here you can see the tech­ni­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics of this device.

On the sides (on both sides) of the device there are lock­ing but­tons, with which you can open the lid after vac­u­um­ing.

On the inside of the lid there is a rub­ber band that holds the edge of the bag dur­ing the work cycle. On the inner low­er part there is a heat­ing tape that seals the edges of the bag. Next is a clamp­ing device for fix­ing the pack­age inside the device. Under it is a remov­able tray.

Vacuum bags

Let me remind you that the pack­age con­tains pack­ages mea­sur­ing 29.5 x 20 cen­time­ters. On the one hand they are com­plete­ly trans­par­ent, and on the oth­er cor­ru­gat­ed. When buy­ing, I rec­om­mend pay­ing atten­tion to the fact that there would be a spe­cial notch on the bags, thanks to which the bag could be opened with­out scis­sors.

There should not be any prob­lems with vac­u­um bags, since there are sell­ers of such bags in online stores (the same Ozon, Kazan­Ex­press, AliEx­press). They are usu­al­ly sold in rolls of dif­fer­ent sizes, so you can always cut off the desired length and then sol­der the edges.

The seal­er in Bort BVV-200 has a width of 31 cen­time­ters and there­fore you should not take bags with a width of more than 30 cen­time­ters to it. The instruc­tions say that no more than 28 cm, but, as it turned out, it’s just a print.

And anoth­er very impor­tant and envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly point is that the bags are made from recy­clable mate­ri­als.


This device has intu­itive con­trols. The con­trol pan­el is locat­ed on the top of the lid. In total, it has two mechan­i­cal but­tons:

  • VAC SEAL — vac­u­um and seal the bag;
  • SEAL — just sol­der the pack­age;

Under these same but­tons is an indi­ca­tor that tells us about the sta­tus of the work.

Vacuuming, operation Bort BVV-200

Usu­al­ly, when plac­ing prod­ucts in a bag, you have to leave a free part of at least five cen­time­ters at the exit. If the edges are wet, then the bag may not be sealed. In addi­tion, it is nec­es­sary to insert the bag into the device in a straight­ened form so that there are no creas­es.

We place the edge of the bag in a vac­u­um cham­ber. Next, close the lid until it clicks and press the VAC SEAL but­ton in order to vac­u­um and imme­di­ate­ly seal the bag. As soon as the indi­ca­tor lights up, this means that the device has begun to oper­ate. When the indi­ca­tor turns off, this indi­cates that the process is over. After the process, it is advis­able to pull the valve to relieve pres­sure and then only open the lid using the side but­tons.

I would not call this vac­u­um clean­er noisy, but still, through the video, I will try to con­vey the sounds dur­ing the work process. But it should be not­ed that the process of work (vac­u­um­ing and seal­ing one bag) takes only about 60 sec­onds.

As a result, we get neat and tight­ly packed prod­ucts, where there is no air. On the video (at the end of the arti­cle) I will try to show the whole process of vac­u­um­ing with seal­ing the pack­age.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, at home there are no spe­cial con­tain­ers for demon­strat­ing vac­u­um­ing in con­tain­ers. Here I can only say that for this you need to con­nect one end of the hose to the device, and the oth­er to the con­tain­er, and then press the but­ton.

Sous vide dishes

After buy­ing a vac­u­um clean­er, I learned about the exis­tence of such dish­es as sous-vide. I’ll try to explain briefly. This is a cook­ing method in which meat and fish are placed in a vac­u­um bag and heat­ed in a water bath at low tem­per­a­tures. Sous vide is used not only for cook­ing meat and fish, but also for seafood, veg­eta­bles, fruits and eggs. Thanks to the water bath, you can make home­made yogurt, tinc­tures and liqueurs.


Vac­u­um seal­ers can be used for more than just vac­u­um­ing food. You can store non-food prod­ucts in these same bags. For exam­ple, it can be doc­u­ments, jew­el­ry, etc. in order to pro­tect them from mois­ture. In addi­tion, it hap­pens that peo­ple use vac­u­um clean­ers to pack clothes to pro­tect them from mois­ture and insects, or, for exam­ple, to reduce the vol­ume of stored items. In the next pho­to you can see what the vac­u­um­ing of the equip­ment of this device looks like.

No air remains in the bag even when vac­u­um­ing small items.


In every­day use, you just need to wipe the case from time to time with a damp cloth and make sure that dirt does not get on the heat­ing tape.

Nev­er­the­less, there are sit­u­a­tions (I will also try to demon­strate in the video) when liq­uid gets into the work­ing cham­ber of the device from the prod­ucts. And this usu­al­ly hap­pens when pack­ag­ing wet prod­ucts.

Such sit­u­a­tions do not entail any prob­lems for the device, but it will still take a lit­tle time to elim­i­nate the liq­uid. Usu­al­ly, after the whole process, I wipe the insides with a dry cloth, remov­ing the pads (see the pho­to below).

Video review


Sum­ming up, I would like to say that Bort BVV-200 copes with its tasks per­fect­ly. Thanks to this device, you can neat­ly and com­pact­ly fold the prod­ucts and go on a trip (to the coun­try house, pic­nic). For exam­ple, the same sand­wich­es, when vac­u­umed, will remain fresh and whole, and the crumbs will be only after open­ing. In fact, you can think of a lot of things, for exam­ple, freeze veg­eta­bles, herbs, berries, and so on for the win­ter.

The vac­u­um clean­er can also help out after the hol­i­days, when there is a lot of half-eat­en food on the table that needs to be stored longer. If you like fish, for exam­ple, salmon or trout, then it will be very con­ve­nient to store it in a vac­u­um bag. And yes, in bags, their smell will not spread through­out the refrig­er­a­tor. And mar­i­nat­ing meat, fish, squid in its own juice will give a bright taste and will not oxi­dize prod­ucts.

I hope you enjoyed this review and made your own con­clu­sion. Oth­er reviews on dif­fer­ent equip­ment, you can find just below in the sec­tion “About the author”. Thank you for your atten­tion!
