Both the GERYON E2900-MS and the CALOTO AP-12X vacuum sealers are meant to service the entry-level food vacuum sealers market. Without looking at their respective price tags, it’s easy to discern this just by looking at their rather cheap designs alone.
When we put the two sealers to the test, both the GERYON E2900-MS and the CALOTO AP-12X exhibited mediocre suction performance across the board. The GERYON received a total performance score of 5.2 out of 10, while the CALOTO straight up failed the test with a score of 4.7.
Usability-wise, both sealers are equal to one another (with the GERYON at a slight advantage due to its indicator lights being brighter and easier to see.)
All in all, the GERYON E2900-MS should be a better pick than the CALOTO AP-12X, though not by a great margin.
