Rated 5 out of 5 by Sthames972 Work Well!
These work well with my food saver, however didn't realize these were expandable. My fault. I do not like them at all, but will use them anyways.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kevmain Great for product
We have the Foodsaver and absolutely love it. The one other reviewer here stated they had a hard time getting them to seal properly. I have found that as you are sealing them to make sure you are holding the sides tightly as if you are trying to stretch them. As you are doing this it increases the machines ability to draw more air out.
I highly recommend the Foodsaver if you are on a budget and trying to make every grocery dollar count :)
Rated 1 out of 5 by Anna1959 Disappointed
I have tried using these bags a couple different ways always have problems getting them to seal. When I think I have mastered it I find the bags are full of air. Waste of money and time. Won't purchase again.
Rated 3 out of 5 by DebAnnH Not as good as regular bags
I found these difficult to hold and seal properly. will go back to regular not expandable.
Rated 2 out of 5 by lucyellen Needs some reworking!
I bought these bags as we raise our own butcher chickens and freeze them whole. I also make a large number of apple pies to freeze and wanted to see if they would fit in these bags. I thought a 9 inch pie plate would fit in an 11 in bag. They did not fit. The bags do not hold a seal. I sealed each end several times and have had to reseal several chickens after they have been in the freezer for a period of time. I am not pleased with this product and would not buy it again.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sarky50 Great for odd shaped and large items
I use these for food items that are big and for freezing pre made meals. I've even taken a 1/4 sheet pan, put a roast and cut up vegetables and minced herbs, then sealed it in a bag and froze the whole thing. When I wanted it for dinner I took it out of the freezer, removed the bag and cooked it from frozen. It. Was a great timesaver for busy days.
Rated 4 out of 5 by serindippity More versatile
After getting our Food Save and the complimentary bags I realized more sizes were necessary. The expendable roll makes it more versatile in fitting larger items. Care must be taken to ensure there are no "pleats" in the sellable strip however, which takes attention to detail.
Rated 5 out of 5 by doxylady Time saver
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!
