Extend your food's shelf life with these VacPak-It 15" x 18" 2 gallon vacuum packaging bags.

Vacuum packaging has numerous benefits and uses for any kitchen - it extends the shelf life of your foods up to 5 times longer than traditional storage methods, which in turn reduces waste and cuts down on costs. These 2 gallon bags are an excellent choice for your vacuum packaging needs, providing the durability a commercial kitchen requires, and the convenience of pre-cut, ready to use bags!

15" x 18", 2 Gallon Size

These 18" x 15" bags are an excellent choice for kitchens that do a lot of vacuum packaging, and that package consistent portions. Unlike rolls of bag material, which must be cut and sealed on both ends, these bags have a uniform 2 gallon size and only require sealing on 1 end. This is great for portion control, and it saves you time too. The open end (for sealing) is 15" wide, so the seal bar on your machine must be longer than this for it to work properly.

For External Strip Machines

These bags are designed to be used with external strip-style vacuum packaging machines, where the bag is placed outside the machine during use. They will not work with chamber machines.

3 Mil Thickness

Each bag is made of 80% polyethylene and 20% nylon, with a third layer of textured mesh material and a 3 mil thickness for superior strength and complete air removal with low stress on the machine.

Freezer, Microwave, and Boil-Safe

These bags can be frozen, refrigerated, and microwaved for convenience. They can also be boiled, which makes them great for applications that use sous vide cooking.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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.

What foods cannot be vacuum sealed?
Foods containing anaerobic bacteria cannot be vacuum sealed: mushrooms, garlic and soft cheeses such as Brie, Camembert, Ricotta and other soft and unpasteurized cheeses.

If the product is especially delicate, use the pulse feature to vacuum out the air in intervals so as to not crush the product.

Unlike a chamber vacuum packaging machine, this external unit is compact and lightweight. It also accommodates embossed vacuum bags of any length that are 12” wide or less. The width is determined by its 12” seal bar.
