The Seal Is King

The Seal Is King

February 01, 2019

With the proper seal, vacuum sealing can protect food and other products from dust, moisture, insects, freezer burn, and a variety of other external elements that may harm or damage products. Vacuum sealing is also an excellent barrier of protection against freezer burn during long-term freezer storage. The seal closing the bag makes all this possible. The seal is King!

Ensuring each bag's seal is key! So be sure to:

  1. Verify the Sealing Area is Squeaky Clean - Simply use a cloth or paper towel to wipe away any and all moister or particles.
  2. Don't Overfill Bags - Be sure to leave several inches between the seal area and the item being sealed to ensure the bag can lay flat across the seal bar. 
  3. Ensure the Seal is Complete - Always make sure the seal is fully complete before removal. With thicker bags, you may have to seal the bag a few seconds longer depending on the machine. 
  4. Double Check the Seal is Pristine- Once your vacuum seal is complete, double check the seal for any air bubbles, wrinkles, or holes. If you see any imperfection, then you'll want to reseal the bag.
