My old machine requires me to press out the air by hand and I find it just 
fine for my needs as I only seal saucy things for onsite boiling.  If I 
wanted to seal meats and other chunky things, and avoid freezer burn, I'd 
get a new machine.  I alwo have a little hand device that lets me reseal 
potato chip bags, etc.  Very handy!
