Highlighting our Channel Vacuum Bags

VacuumBags

Our February product of the month is our channel vacuum bags.  Our channel vacuum bags are specifically designed for out of chamber vacuum machines.  Using a vacuum bag can extend the shelf life and flavor of your food as well as prevent freezer burn and dehydration loss.

We want to highlight long time customer, Boss Mouse Cheese, headquartered in Traverse County, Michigan.  Boss Mouse Cheese first approached us more than seven years ago looking for a high quality channel bag for their artisan cheeses.  The bag quality was important as Sue Kurta, head cheesemaker, was producing small batches of cheese.

SmokedButter

Since then, Boss Mouse Cheese has added a famous smoked butter (Rachel Ray loves it!) all packaged in Sealer Sales’ channel vacuum bags.  Thank you Boss Mouse Cheese for your unwavering loyalty.  If you would like to try Boss Mouse Cheese, visit their website here:   http://bossmousecheese.com/  You might regret trying the smoked butter…it’s quite addicting!

We are offering 10% off our channel bags in the month of February. Use product code: PRODUCTOFTHEMONTH on our website.

Don’t forget that these vacuum bags must be used on a out of chamber vacuum sealer in order for the full benefits of food preservation  and dehydration loss to take place.  Visit our site for channel type vacuum sealers.

Vacuum Bags Demystified!

Do you have a vacuum sealer and looking to purchase vacuum bags?  If you are, remember that there are TWO kinds of vacuum bags available on the market:  standard or embossed/channeled.  Make sure you purchase the correct bags.  See our post to differentiate.

Channeled Bags – One smooth layer and one coated layer

Bags Defined:
Standard Vacuum Bags – are clear poly/nylon pouches that can be used with a vacuum chamber or nozzle vacuum machine.   Standard vacuum bags are much LESS expensive than channeled bags.  There is also much more variety of the standard vacuum bags such as sous vide (boilable), thicker bags (4mil or 5mil), zipper and hang hole, and much more!  To purchase our standard vacuum bags, visit our website or speak to a distributor near you.

Channeled Bags – are characterized by the embossed or special surface which creates a pathway or “channel” which allows the air to be pulled out of the bags.   These bags will work on ANY and ALL vacuum sealers.  Your home machines (Foodshell, FoodSaver, Seal-A-Meal models) MUST use the channel bags because they are external clamp machines.  To purchase our channel bags, visit our website or speak to a distributor near you.  We also now carry channel bags with a ziplock as well as one with a gold back.

Most home users have a vacuum sealer that must use the channeled bags although there is the SINBO vacuum sealer series which is the only home use vacuum sealer that utilizes STANDARD vacuum pouches saving you money right away.
