goSENSOR, an ideal vacuum packer for fishmongers

If we want to vacuum pack delicate foods such as fish, we must ensure that the process is as quick as possible, in order to avoid excessive handling. To do this, Mychef goSENSOR has a prominent point in its favor: it works with sensor technology. The vacuum packer detects the chamber’s vacuum percentage, stopping its activity once it has reached the level you have selected. In this way you will avoid the main problem of the machines that work by time, such as choosing long times and that the fish loose its moisture.


Another key point of Mychef goSENSOR that makes it an ideal vacuum packing machine for fishmongers is its optimized control with three buttons, which facilitates its handling. Its use is very simple. You just have to place the bag with the fish or seafood in the chamber and select the parameters:

  • vacuum percentage
  • extra vacuum (optional)
  • sealing time
  • mode of recovery of atmospheric pressure

Once this is done, just lower your lid. Easy, right? It is! In addition, you can visualize the activity that the packaging machine is doing on its illuminated LCD panel, which is a great advantage.

Uniform vacuum packed fish productions

Probably in your fish shop you will need to cut up large pieces of fish to vacuum pack and put them on sale. Do you want to be more agile and have practically identical portions of packaged fish? Mychef goSENSOR memorizes the last vacuum parameters used so that when you turn on the device, you can execute them without having to enter them again to obtain similar results.

This uniformity can be achieved both for fresh fish that will be consumed in a few days, and for those that you or your customers will freeze. Thanks to the vacuum packaging technique and the use of appropriate storage bags, your fish will not suffer the so-called ‘freeze burn’. This occurs when foods such as meat or fish lose water when frozen and it crystallizes on its surface, resulting in a dehydration of the piece and a yellowish color. Avoid it thanks to Mychef goSENSOR! This vacuum  is compatible with conservation bags, metallized and embossed, so you can improve your customer service and provide more personalized products according to your needs. Its 4 mm thick seal guarantees perfect maintenance of food qualities.

Also, if you want to marinate fish or other products, with the Mychef goSENSOR Stop function you can stop the vacuum pump at a certain value, achieving the desired result cleanly, quickly and economically. It is a big plus!
