Lofaho Compact Tray Sealer Review

Intro to tray food sealers

What is a tray food sealer? A tray food sealer uses a tray that is sealed tightly on top with a plastic film to preserve freshness and keep the food inside from being exposed to fresh air. By sealing food inside its shelf life is increased.  No lids are necessary as the plastic film protects food from spoiling, spilling, and ensuring nothing disturbs the food until its ready to be consumed.

Food sealers are popular in the restaurant industry due to how reliable they are. Customers are always assured their food will arrive securely. What sort of food is easy to see through the transparent plastic so they’ll be no wrong orders delivered. Finally, it can be presented in an appealing way since it’s visible through the plastic. Customers will appreciate seeing food arranged in an appetizing manner of the sealed tray.

Types of restaurant delivery methods

What types of containers do you usually get your restaurant food delivered in? Most likely a plastic container with a lid on top, or a foam box. Both of these do an acceptable job of transporting the food as long as its held stable until it arrives. If you tile either of these contains you can expect them to leak, the foam box right away while the plastic container with a lid might do a slightly better job.  Plastic contains are sometimes enclosed up in plastic wrap in case of the food inside being runny. It helps somewhat but as soon as you take that foil off the liquids and oils will drip all over your kitchen, plus the plastic container will be all covered in food as well. To save you from that mess consider using a plastic seal tray.

    What’s inside the tray sealer machine?

    Each machine comes with the main machine unit, two films (TOP film, EPL film), and two types of food trays (10 each).

    TOP film provides a strong seal but needs to be opened with a knife, leaving behind non-reusable plastic at the end of the tray (suitable for soup dishes).

    EPL film is easy to open by hand, allowing tray reuse, but it's more suitable for simple salads or light dishes.



    The trays are very convenient to have many outstanding features other containers can’t claim.

    1. Sizes

    The trays comes in a variety of sizes and will fit all your sealing needs. A 55mm and a 75mm are the sizes the machine usually comes with but there’s a total of 6 different sizes you can get, one tray even has two compartments so you can keep your food separate, for example if you have one liquid based food you don’t want mixing with the other.


    2. Visibility

    The seal on top is translucent so you’ll always know exactly what’s in there. No more taking the wrong lunch to work.


    3. Organization

    The trays easily stack on one another, and with no need for a lid they take up even less space. Don’t worry about stacking containers with a plastic seal, its plenty strong enough to hold weight.


    4. No smell or discoloration

    The seal tightly seals in smells and locks away air so food like apples won’t start to change their color.


    5. No harmful chemicals

    Both the tray and film are safe to make contact with food.


    6. Zero spills

    Tray sealed containers are the only ones that have a zero spill while having an easily removable film.
