The price includes delivery.
OK, so if you are into your sous vide cooking or just find these things handy then this is a very good price for a pretty strong and reliable machine. I actually had my first 2 years ago and still going strong.

This particular machine has been re branded about a dozen times. And you can find a re branded version on Amazon for £29.99 by Ymiko.
It is the same machine but they move a few buttons around like on all the other rebrands.
* I know its the same because i have it sitting in my cupboard *
A few other rebrands of this machine are Tintonlife and Cymye which are both popular in places like Russia.
The difference here is first obviously the price but second they come with full English instruction that one can actually understand. The Ymiko one comes with a sheet of paper that looks like it was written by a Child. This was a pain in the backside because i couldn't figure out how to just Heat seal for using the Roll bags and also how to do a medium vacuum for wet foods. This one includes full legible instruction for these things.

You can also see videos of this in use on the review part of the link and also youtube so you feel a bit better about buying a cheapo electronic from China. Does the job for me.

Only downside personally is it took 12 days to be delivered as it ships from China. HOWEVER, you can pay a few quid more and choose the Hong Kong warehouse and it will be with you within a week. Or a chunk more for faster shipping. But then you may as well order the Amazon one.

They also have the bags and ROLL on the website cheaper than Amazon, so its worth ordering some of those with the machine.

Question to OP, we don't have a vacuum packer but use the water displacement method.. Do you honestly find much difference with the foods? (tight on space and don't want additional gismos in the kitchen if it's only 10% difference max).

I also use the water displacement method with zip lock bags and it works great. But i use a 1/1 full size gastronorm and find it annoying trying to peg all the bags to the side of the container and there is always dead space in the middle. Or if doing long cooks like whole pork shoulder, stews etc they tend to start floating after 6 hours or so. The vacuum method works better then. I do notice less moisture migration from meat when it was sous vide in vacuum as opposed to in the ziplock.
Definitely not an essential piece of kit, but for me it gets used 50% of the time and does comes in handy. This one is really slim and i can stuff it into the cupboard easily. It also has a strong magnet strip in the base so you can stick it on the fridge etc

Cool, thanks. Good to know.
I'm only using a rice cooker with glass top. Like you say, the zip locks sometimes get moisture and sometimes the seal isn't perfect. I normally put the zip part above water and trap it with the glass lid.
If I'm cooking something which can float ill put a small plate inside to sink the meats.
This is now £15.89 on amazon, and has a UK plug. I received mine this week, only used it a few times but is much better than the old lidl one it's replacing:
