Customer questions about this product

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.
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.

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


Great option for storing jerkey.

Scott from Thomas Farms Deer Processing on 02/22/2023

We really like using these zip vacuum bags and this size holds 5 lbs. perfectly. Our customer comment that they like the sturdy zipl seal. Only wish they came in a larger pack for economic reasons.

Deeanna G. from China Prairie Products on 07/25/2019

Thick and durable and well constructed but the zip only works if it's sealed on the other side so once you seal and use it then you can rip open the side with the zipper and use it to reseal the contents which is great as most sealed bags you open and can't reseal again!

Twins A. on 08/24/2017

Bistro L. from Place To Be Bistro on 06/19/2017

These freezer bags work great for larger portions of meat. They seal tightly, I have never had any problems with freezer burn over the last few months of use. The resealable top is a handy addition.
