Locks In Freshness

Chamber Vacuum Packaging Units

This bag is intended for use with chamber vacuum packing machines. Chamber units seal bags by taking all the air out of the chamber at once, without drawing liquid into the seal area. This makes a stronger seal than external vacuum packaging machines and allows you to seal liquids for efficient storage options in your kitchen!

Customer Q&AAsk a Question

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.
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.

Customer Reviews


Great quality, I teach a condensed culinary course in the prison system. My freezers set untouched for a year during the pandemic. I was thrilled to see that everything in these bags survived the long holding time. I was dreading the waste I would have once returning. After thawing and cooking the meats and veggies we sealed I was thrilled to find the quality was still there. These bags saved me thousands of dollars in potential waste!

Cheaper than the nearly identical bags I can buy that are produced locally. Tear tabs aren't very usable but we usually cut them open anyways so it doesn't affect us.

Justin M. from Aulac Big Stop on 12/18/2019

This is good size to store medium size portion. I use this size a lot. The thickness is good to store soft food. But for hard and pointy stuff, I would get the 4mil ones. But this is good enough for most of the food that I want to store. Plus it's the best price you can get even you have to pay shipping.

amazing bags the best on the market. will be purchasing more in the future. Definitely the least expensive I could find without skimping on pouch thickness.

Aaron A. on 03/31/2019

These are fantastic quality bags for any chamber vacuum sealer. These seem to be the perfect size for my weekly chicken sous vide. I highly recommend these especially for the price.

Stephen K. on 10/30/2018

Best values in the size vs cost in my opinion. If you are commercial individual bags per each need is great. For a home user this is a good size for most tasks.

Doran B. from M&S Inc on 10/22/2018

These bags are a great product for a very reasonable price. I have had zero issues with sealing. I actually received a free case of these after purchasing a vacuum machine and have continued to buy after. I haven't been able to find a comparable bag at the same price point.

Wesley K. on 09/25/2018

These bags are very high quality and they work great in my Vac Master. The food stays really fresh in the freezer for many months.
