Customer questions about this product

How do I determine if a vacuum machine bag will work on my machine?

If you have a chamber-type machine: Buy a chamber-type bag (mesh-less design). The open end of the vacuum bag must be shorter than the seal bar on your machine, and the bag must also fit inside your machine’s chamber.

If you have an external-type machine: You must buy an external-type, or "out of chamber" bag (mesh design). The open end of the vacuum bag must be shorter than the seal bar on your machine.

All of our vacuum machine bags list how large the open end is, and whether you can use them with external or chamber machines, in the content.

With the 944200 8" x 11 1/2" VacStrip external strip packing bags, you can keep your products for up to five times longer! Keep air out by sealing in the freshness of your foods. These bags can be used with any external strip, suction-type machine. Made of 80% polyethylene and 20% nylon, these bags feature a unique extra layer of perforated material. This allows air to flow out more efficiently in the vacuum process, so your foods will be as fresh as possible with maximum bag suction and hardly any stress on your machine! This improves the packaging of liquid-rich foods like fresh meat and fish. Also, these industrial strength bags are perfect for sou vide cooking. The bags can withstand up to 160 degrees to cook in, but are not boilable.

    bags Great food seal Vacuum Saver price size meat quality

    Nice quality bags! I use them for sous vide cooking and they hold up great. They work good for vacuum sealing food that is wet. The design prevents a lot of moisture being sucked up into the vacuum sealer

    This was a great purchase! The price and amount are unbeatable. Will be buying more now that I know the size is very versatile and can be used for many size meats to vegetables to be frozen.

    Love, love, love these bags! They are the perfect size for most of our meals. I purchase meat in larger quantities, then repackage them into these bags to vacuum seal and store in the freezer. We are big meat eaters, and they are the perfect size for our dinners for two (they easily hold two big steaks or 4-5 pork chops). I wish I would have gotten these a long time ago - they are terrific, and so affordable!

    These VacStrip bags work as good, if not better, than the expensive ones you buy at the store. I've never had problems with sealing, freezer burn, or ice crystals.

    You cant beat the price for these packing bags They work great on my food saver machine More than half the price of store brands. I am a food hoarder and buy everything in bulk Food says frozen solid with no leakage will be back for larger size LOVE them

    this product is an incredible money saver for any restaurant that buy whole meat and fish. Cut, seal and freeze and never waste again. I have order this product multiple times.

    I really like these bags. The price just can't be beat and many different choices of sizes they offer is just great. I will be ordering more of these.

    This is the first time we have used these bags. I will have to see how they hold up prior to giving a complete opinion. But as you can see from the photo they look like they will work excellently for packaging our farmstead cheeses.

    We have been using the vac strip bags for about 4 years now. These bags seal well in the Vacmaster machines as well as other machines. The bags are durable and thick enough that cuts of meat with bones do not cause a problem.

    My go-to bag for freezing 1-2-serving meals, charcuterie in manageable portions. The quality is great and the perforated inner piece really aids in quick removal of air and a better seal. Highly recommended!

    from A Man for All Seasonings Blog Posted on

    These Bags are simple to use and they keep things fresh. the moisture seal is awesome in these bags because not only does it keep the moisture in the meat where it is supposed to be but it helps to not suck the juice of the meat into the vacmaster.

    from Todd Tohl Construction Posted on

    These bags are well worth the money. They seal well and let all the air out. The precut sizes save a lot of time packing and sealing foods.

    Works great for our foodsaver. Great quality bags makes saving food easy and affordable. No more wasting food. Also great for making your own boil in the bag food items.

    As an avid hunter, fisher, and all around outdoorsman, these bags have been an amazing investment. We processed and put up 8 deer last season, and that isn't taking into consideration the deer we put up for friends, or the hogs be butchered. I love my FoodSaver but knew there had to be a less expensive alternative! Let me tell you, these bags are it! we figured it up and in the three years since we started purchasing them, we've saved money JUST in the 8x11.5 size bags. The kicker?? These bags actually perform better than the 'FoodSaver' brand we were initially so blindly loyal to.

    These food fresh vacuum bags are great for our business. keeps food fresh when not using the whole container. You can not beat the price.

    from Sheila's Homestyle Posted on

    These food fresh bags are perfect for the kitchen type vacuum machine. With the 100 count box, they are the best deal on the Internet.

    from Wildlife Processor Posted on

    I had a Food Saver and returned it to Costco due to continual issues on the seal and the bags. I buy at wholesale clubs and put-up what we do not consume immedialely; and that is usually most of what I purchase. I replaced the Food Saver with a VacMaster PRO 130 and started using these bags and they work very well. I even put up the large prawns from Costo. I found that you cant just throw them in and hope for the best. If you put them in one layer, laying them on their sides-no problem. We also do the Scallops, Steals & Chicken. Make my own jerky and it works great there also. GREAT BAGS and the best I have found yet. And believe me I have bought many different styles. The little bubbled strip in the center, insures that you get a good even seal- while pulling a vacuum.

    FoodFresh VacStrip External Strip Vacuum Packaging Bags 8" x 11.5" 100/PK are great to keep food fresh and are very easy to use. Best purchase ever!

    from Flashback Unlimited Posted on

    I used foodsaver bag for short time, they were way to costly. I now use VacStrip bags, great value and seal very well. Now my daughter is going to use them now. great product

    I use these bags with my Food Saver vacuum sealer and they are a great quality bag for WAY less money than the Food Saver bags. Check out Webstaurants Junior size pop-up deli sheets for use with these - makes vac-sealing moist items simple!

    I ordered 3 boxes of this item which I am very pleased with as I have tried other products and the seal seemed to break on them but with these after cutting and wrapping 6 deer I had no seals break..I used 2 1/2 boxes of these. I will be ordering more in the near future..I'm glad I found you on the web. I use them for all foods in my house.

    My brother-in-law is a professional butcher and he told me about these vacuum bags. I was so impressed with the quality and price, I ordered them as soon as I got home. This is now my second purchase and have even recommended them and your site to my granddaugher.

    This product really does work well with FoodSaver sealers and it is the cheapest I have found anywhere. I will keep coming back each time.
