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 the same size or 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 the same size or 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.

Is this Vacmaster vacuum bag / pouch boilable?
Yes, Vacmaster bags and pouches can be boiled. All styles will withstand boiling temperatures for up to 20 minutes; for maximum performance, check out their ”Re-Therm” line of bags, which can be boiled for 30 minutes.
What foods cannot be vacuum sealed?
Foods containing anaerobic bacteria cannot be vacuum sealed: mushrooms, garlic, seafood, and soft cheeses, such as brie, camembert, ricotta, and other soft and unpasteurized cheeses.

Customer Reviews

Generally speaking, these are good bags. I've bought thousands of them, and only twice had problems. Main problem is that sometimes whole butches of bags are defected. You seal them, in a few hours they are unsealed. And believe me, it's not about adjusting sealing time. It seems like micro-cracks are presented on those bags. Usually, i have dump defected butch (50 bags) and go to next one, which is fine. Today though, I had a few defected butches in one box which made me a bit frustrated. If you really need these bags for your operations, buy two boxes to insure your operations.

Item came in on time with good packaging. Bags are correctly sized(8x12), seems thinner than 3 mil but I do not have a way of accurately measuring it. The major complaint was the quality of the zipper and the way it was attached. I have used 13 bags so far - packing my oatmeal and powdered milk for a backpacking trip and all of them have failed to open the zipper. It separated from where the zipper was sealed to the bag, The reason I ordered this was to close the bag again after pouring in the hot water while waiting for the oats to soak and it failed miserably... I should have just bought the regular bag (w/o zipper) which is also cheaper.
