Vacuum Sealers General Questions


1.How to Clean Appliance:
Remove Power Cord from electrical outlet.
·Outside the unit: Wipe with a damp cloth or sponge and mild dish soap.
·Inside the unit: Wipe away any foods or liquids with a paper towel. Cleaning bags for reuse: Wash the bags in warm water with a mild dishwashing soap, then rinse them will and allow them to dry completely before reusing.
2.Vacuum Sealing Troubleshooting
·Nothing happens when I press down on the lid:
(1)Make sure the power cord is correctly plugged into the electrical outlet.
(2)Make sure the power cord is not damaged in any way.
(3)Make sure the electrical outlet is operative by plugging in another appliance.
·If it is not, please check the circuit breakers or fuses in your home.
(1)Make sure the bag is positioned correctly down in the Vacuum Chamber.
(2)Press down firmly on both sides of the lid.
(3)Wait minutes to allow the appliance to cool off, and then try using again.
3.Why is my Daintii appliance not vacuum sealing?
(1)As you do your bulk sealing be sure to leave at least 40 seconds between each seal to avoid over heating your vacuum sealerlf you've been sealing for a while without abreak-you might have overheated your vacuum sealer Pause for about 20 minutes then try sealing again.
(2)When you use this sealer with moist foods it works best if you freeze it prior to sealing. This prevents liquids from getting sucked into the vacuum pump. Alternatively you can put a folded paper towel at the open end of the bag to absorb any juices from the moist foods or meat.
(3)Bag troubleshooting questions: Did you leave about 2.5 inches(6.35cm)at the top of the bag when filling? Are you using a Daintii brand bag? Did you re-use a bag with imperfections?
4.For your own safety, always follow these basic precautions when using a Daintii appliance.
·Do not use appliance on wet or hot surfaces, or near a heat source.
·Do not immerse any part of appliance, power cord or plug in water or other liquid. ·To disconnect, unplug power cord from electrical outlet.
·Do not disconnect by pulling on cord.
·Do not operate appliance with a damaged power cord or plug.
·Do not operate appliance if it malfunctions or is in any way damaged. If cord or appliance is damaged, Daintii Use appliance only for its intended use.
·Closely supervise children when using any electrical appliance.
·Do not allow appliance to be used as a toy.
·110-120V AC Appliances Only: The Daintii appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce risk of electrical shock, this plug is intended to fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not modify plug in any way.
·Caution: A short power cord is provided to reduce risks from entanglement or tripping over a longer cord. An extension cord may be used when marked electrical rating is no less than electrical rating of this appliance. The extension cord should not drape over counter or tabletop where it can be tripped over or pulled on unintentionally, especially by children.
5.What is the Moist/Dry setting for?
This changes the seal level for type of food - moist or dry. Liquids can be drawn up by the vacuum process and liquids between the layers of the bag can have a cooling effect on the heat seal. Adjustable Food Settings Seal Level can extend the seal time to compensate for liquid and create a secure, reliable and air-tight seal.
When vacuum sealing very moist foods such as stew, try letting the bag hang lower than the unit, by placing it on an open top kitchen drawer(The paper towel is just to absorb moisture, if necessary. It goes between the food and the seal so that it absorbs the moisture instead of the moisture getting sucked into the machine. Just fold a paper towel into a 1 inch strip and place it inside the bag below the seal line.). Hit the seal button once you see liquids start to move up the bag. When sealing large volumes of liquid, it is normal to have some air bubbles remain in the bag.
