Thanks Bob. That is useful info.
Our inverter is only 600 watts, so I think I was right in guessing it would struggle.
Disappointed I was not getting a proper unit, a month ago I bought a cheap
flimsy looking Korean one with a small plastic hand pump. It was only 12€ so not much to lose if it proved hopeless.
So far I have been very impressed. Bags of coffee I stored a month ago are still perfectly airtight. Extra bags are relatively expensive, so it is less good for bulk storage
. All I have needed it for is coffee beans and cheese though and few bags are needed for this. I pop the cheese into thin plastic freezer
bags first, so the reusable bags do not need to be washed out carefully.
It takes up little space and uses only very little muscle power
