Rated 1 out of 5Â by Cpofohio Waste of money
Bought these since they were on sale figured I would give them a try. We are in the habit of freezing items before putting them in the bags, so yes we did that. What we noticed is that the machine ran excessively long, would not suck all the air out. You have to find just the right spot - not too close to this napkin and not too far for it to work. Another thing we quickly realize is say we have 4 pieces of chicken in a back - in the old ones, we could cut the bag open, take out what we need and reseal same bag, not these, when you cut them open - you cut off so much due the this "napkin" you don't have enough room to reseal - after 3 bags we finally go one to seal again. Only reason we are keeping these worthless things is because sending them back would take most of our refund. Do not recommend these due to issues with sealing, not being able to reseal.

No more need to insert paper to absorb the back flow of liquid from meat/juicy fruit to the drip tray. Instead of freezing item(s) to make them stiff, just put them in the bag. To save waste and if you're into really small portion control, cut the bag in half (length wise) and seal the new sides. After I buy the celery I wash/rinse and let it drip/dry for awhile. The same for whole pineapple (the core). Cut it up into slices, let it drip/dry for for a while. The water from washing the celery (which will make them soft and less crispy) and juice from the pineapple will be mostly drained and you won't have any waste from a narrower bag. This would be for tall/slender fruit/meat.

I put 100+ quarts of strawberries up each year. No more worry about freezer burn
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gypsy2 The Best Products I've Found
Since I discovered Food Saver, I can't say enough about them. The Bags are easy to use to store anything, not just frozen foods, but they are why I bought the Food Saver. I was having to throw away frozen foods from two freezers because of freezer burns and it was costing my family money we couldn't afford to waste. I had used another product on the market and enjoyed it but then it was discontinued and I started seeing advertisements on TV about Food Saver and went online and was glad I did. After reading everything I could find, I bought one and my husband and I have a great time using it. We actually save money with the item and I'd recommend it to anybody.
