MegaWise Vacuum Sealer VS6621 vs Mueller Vacuum Sealer MV-1100 Side-by-Side Comparison

As expected, the Megawise VS6621’s smaller size leads to it having lower performance than the Mueller MV-1100, but it should still make for a compelling purchase if you’re looking for a compact sealer in particular!

MegaWise Vacuum Sealer VS6621 vs Mueller Vacuum Sealer MV-1100

Overall Verdict

The MegaWise VS6621 offers relatively decent suction performance in an affordable package. The sealer itself is decently-built and comes with a bag cutter built into the lid. Our reviewers also gave the sealer high praise for its ease of use. However, the sealer is noted as having a loud motor and sealing performance isn’t exactly the best.

In contrast, the Mueller has a higher overall performance score (6.0 vs. 5.0 for the MegaWise), but its design is not as highly rated due to a few build quality issues (creaking lid hinges and unreliable control panel buttons.) Mueller made it up to the user with a longer two-year warranty compared to MegaWise's one-year, though.

The Megawise should be an okay choice if you’re looking for something affordable and doesn’t require a lot out of your vacuum sealer. But if you’re after performance and good after-sale support, the Mueller will be a better pick.
