Galaxy VME1 External Vacuum Packaging Machine

Galaxy VME1 External Vacuum Packaging Machine

In the foodservice business, food spoilage isn’t just wasteful, it’s expensive! It can easily cost a business thousands of dollars each year, damaging profit and hindering business growth. Galaxy offers an affordable, user-friendly solution to help minimize the inconvenience and cost of spoiled product. The Galaxy VME1 external vacuum packaging machine makes preserving product easier than ever. It’s designed to seal bags of ingredients for extended storage - locking in freshness and flavor for later use. It can also seal bags for sous-vide cooking! Once the end of a bag is placed onto the seal bar and the lid is lowered, with just the touch of a button, the unit removes the air from the bag and seals it. If the product is especially delicate, use the pulse feature to vacuum out the air in intervals so as to not crush the product. And, if using a particularly thick and heavy-duty bag, select the extended seal option to ensure that the bag is sealed completely. 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. The Galaxy VME1 external vacuum packaging machine is designed for light-duty applications, perfect for low-volume businesses and convenient, on-the-go operation. Plus, to offer the best deal available, the Galaxy VME1 machine is the most affordable commercial unit available on the market. Featuring the same functions and providing the same seal capacity as the VacMaster Pro 110 and other competing models, the VME1 costs a fraction of the price, saving your business more money to truly maximize profit – and who doesn’t want to save money? Effective, efficient, easy to use, and priced to beat, the Galaxy VME1 external vacuum packaging machine is a no-brainer for any operation.

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.

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.

    I purchased these as replacement bags for my food saver since I ran out of them. They work just as well and you can cut them to whatever length you need. Much cheaper than buying the Foodsaver brand.
    Excellent quality, easy to use. I can cut whatever length I need and seal to make different length bags. It makes neat packaging for our product. Will buy again
    These bags tear incredibly easily after they're in the freezer. I vacuum sealed some steaks and beef chuck cross last night and put it in the freezer. This morning I opened the freezer to get something and noticed a fairly large tear that had apparently happened when something brushed against the pack as someone was getting something out. Less than 12 hours in the freezer, nothing sitting on top of it, very minimal activity in the kitchen this morning and already there is a tear in one of the packs. There is no way I would feel comfortable using these for long term freezer storage - let alone our plan of bulk processing meat and having it ready to pull out and drop in a sous vide bath. I left it at 2 stars because I think they might work fine if you don't freeze them, but that feels a bit generous.
    Thank you for your review, John! We are sorry this VacPak-It 6 inch x 50' Roll of Full Mesh External Vacuum Packaging Bags 3 Mil has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    These were the worst bags. They do not compare to the Vacmaster brand. The exterior is rough and they don't hold the seal. I returned all but the roll that I had attempted to use. Not worth the cost savings.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    These bags are great for small vacuum machines people get the wrong bags for the small machines you need to get these kinds of bags where the back side is rough
