I cooked double batches of my favorite recipes. Serve one and freeze the other in an 8x8 aluminum pan with freezer paper on top using this expanding bag. Just give that extra 5" and it works great!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by FL Wrapper Very Disappointed with Expandable Bags
Very disappointed in my last purchase of Expandable Bags. It wasn't clear at all what they were for -- big bulky items like a whole chicken -- they are difficult to use with normal foods.

I was able to put up a home cured and smoked picnic ham that weighed about 10 lbs with no problem. Will probably have at the Thanksgiving feast. Being able to freeze something this size at home in a vacuum bag is great.

For a long time, I've been storing my large grain and flour sacks in the deep freezer, taking up over half of the bottom storage space.
I love the deep pleats, and am able to seal 5 lbs of flour at a time. I've also used the pleated bags for rice, but since there are so many tiny spaces between rice grains, it's more effective to use the mason jars.
Whole chickens, roasts and even a gallon of chili have all worked beautifully.
I see people have a bit of trouble with the pleats, but they fold inward naturally and I"ve not had one sealing mishap with them. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
