Compare Minipack Machines Posted on 11 Sep 11:19

We carry a full line of Minipack vacuum sealer machines. Remember, chamber machines require commercial vacuum seal bags (which are smooth on BOTH sides like you would find at a grocery store). Non-chamber (aka Foodsaver, Rival, etc.) use our bags that have an embossed texture on one side to remove air.

Sometimes it can be difficult to know which machine best suits your needs, so I have added a great comparison chart. Hope this always, if you have any questions contact us at 866-542-7022 or

Vacuum Sealed vs. Ziploc Bags Posted on 11 Sep 11:05

I found this on the Foodsaver site...the pictures really do speak for themselves! Our bags are great because they will work in a Foodsaver, Seal-A-Meal, Rival, etc. machine, but you don't have to pay the premium prices because they are a generic bag! They are clear with textured air channels on one side to remove all air for maximum freshness.
