FoodSaver® 11" x 16' Portion Pouch Heat-Seal Roll
The smaller bags have endless uses.
Love the smaller size bags on the 11" roll. I freeze nuts in 1/2 cup portions as well as peppers (from my garden) lemon juice in 1 & 2 Tbl. portions and many other small food items. The 8" rolls were just too large for these things. I love the fact that when something gets "forgotten" in the freezer, I no longer have to throw food away when sealed in my FoodSaver bags. Thank you for a great product!

Food Saver 11" portion pouch
Since I am a single person living alone I find this product to be a real money saver to use. No market sells a package with just one pork chop or one steak, so I always package and freeze them. Now I can use a single portion in each side of the portion bag. I now save money two ways: first by using my Food Saver and second by not having to use so many bags.

Love these bags - easy to use, great for burgers, portion control, leftovers, cheese, fruit, too many things to mention.
Purchased 1 box to try awhile ago & now got 3 more as I keep finding new uses for them.
Hamburgers retain their red color - they look and taste like they were freshly prepared. Anything else I used them for has also retained it's freshness.
Good value - saves time, work and material.

Convenient, easy to use, & good value.
The Portion Pouch is very easy to use. It is the correct portion for many of my food items I am using it for and a real time saver. I found it to be a good value and I would easily purchase these bags again, it fact I would probably double my order. With grocery prices on the rise and purchasing items on sale I can proportion future meals and save money.

Great portion control bags.
I love these bags for the convenience of saving portions for dinner. I no longer have to take out more than I need or use a bag that is bigger than I need to save my fresh meat and leftovers. The only drawback to these is the small openings, it makes it hard to insert a chicken breast without getting a lot of juices on the bag opening. They are great for portion control and are very easy to use.

wonderful product in all aspects.
normally a skeptic when it comes to new kitchen gadgets, I was totally amazed at how easy to get started using this system was and that it really lives up to its name. I have gone from freezer burn & spoiled fruits to long lasting savings. This is one item my whole family benefits from and I have cut my grocery bills in half with fewer trips to store to replace vegies!! This is an excellent product!

One of the best ideas ever!
I have already used up the first box purchased and am getting ready to place an order for more. This smaller size bag is fantastic for freezing meats used for seasoning, especially if your family only consists of two people. It is also really great for freezing individual portions of leftovers or whatever. I would higly recommend it and now prefer it to the larger bags and even the quart size bags.

This is a neat product/saves time
I have the canisters/pouch product/plus other bag products & love them all. I especially like putting my coffee grounds in one of the canisters to keep the ground fresh. Am anxious to use the marinator container. Have bought the Game Food Saver for one of our daughters & she likes freezing their deer meat in the bags. We both can keep our meat longer & it seems fresher when we thaw it out to fix.

This product is exactly as I hoped it would be.
Sometimes I cook for two, sometimes for one. These bags are an excellent way to save leftovers too good to throw away and just enough for one more meal. I divide up lunchmeat and cheeses so I can grab enough for one sandwich or 5 if company comes. They are also great for fresh veggies I like but no one else does. Just divide them up with enough for single servings. I love these things.

11" Portion Pouch Roll
I like these because you can put your meat in one pouch then put your vegetables in the other pouch. This makes it easy then for dinner when you come come home. I also like that you can put these in water and let them simmer until hot or put them in the microwave. Makes it quick for evening meals and can be more healthy meals with a healthy portion.

fantastic for Fish too :)
we do lots of fishing, and was going thru our freezer and found a couple 'Rainbow trout' that have been in there for over 6 months, and they look just as good and yummy as the day I caught them! and the slim design is an A+ for pan fish and is a great space saver, easy to see them too, ( no frost or freezer burn = no guessing what fish it is!
thanks for a great product and product lines!

Love the Portion Pouch, great for smaller portions
We like to buy in bulk when we find meat on sale, especially whole pork loins, that we cut into chops & roasts. The FoodSaver sealer itself, is the perfect appliance for packaging & preventing freezer burn. Since it is just my husband & I the Portion Pouches are perfect for 2 pork chops, 2 hamburgers, 2 cube steaks, etc. If someone is coming over, just take out more packages!

A long time user
I have used this system for years for my meat storage. Deer, Fish, Beef, for the most part.
It really does a great job and I have "sold" several units to friends when they saw mine.
The only problem I have is that on my last order a few weeks back they had a sale announced the next day and I missed it by 24 hours. I guess I'll just delay the next order to see if that happens again.

Perfect for small things too
I don't generally seal single servings at this time, but I do have to seal small things like spices or other small amounts and this is MUCH easier than messing about cutting the other bags down to fit, and less waste. You can tear them down the middle and seal each side separately also, which is what I have done for small things, like that last bit of cheese leftover from making tacos.

Not sure the purpose of these bags. They are on a continuous roll but are perforated in the middle. Strange. Can't decide if they go into the FoodSaver as a roll or should you unperforate the roll before putting it in the machine. Very confusing concept. Really see no purpose to the bags as they are. Love the pint and quart size though.

The 11" Workhorse of the Food Saver World
These bags are my top choice for all Food Saver storing. I like the flexibility of making the bags any size I need. It is a great bag for bulk storage, freezing make ahead meals, freezing bulk coffee and freezing seasonal produce to be enjoyed throughout the winter months. It is versatile enough to be used for small scale storage as well. Well done Food Saver and Thank You

Everything is good
I got my food saver about two months ago and since then have ordered several products and bags to go with my food saver. I love it so much I gave my brother one for his birthday. Actually I gave him one that has more features on it than mine. But I'm not jealous I like mine. The bags and accessories that go with the systems are fantastic and I would recommend them to everybody

This is a great product!
This food saver was a wedding gift for my nephew and his new bride. I have the same vacuum sealer and I wanted to share its abilities with them! They called to say they loved it! I shared with them some of the things we use ours for and they had already gained some new ideas from their neighbors, who have a vacuum sealer as well!

LOVE the Food Saver!!
My friend saw my Food Saver (ordered it last September) and she talked about it all the time, so when one similar to mine went on sale (she could NOT afford the regular price), I saw it, told her it was on sale and she asked me to order it for her, so I did!!! It is an amazing machine, I've used it for so many things, especially fresh veggies, so I will have them all year round.

This product has allowed me to buy meats and other foods in bulk, which is so much cheaper. I have no freezer burn, the bags are simple to reopen and foods are very fresh.
I like the bags have tags to date stamp your items too.
I haven't even began fishing yet! Can't wait to put that Rockfish in these and open them later in the year to only find that it is still FRESH and tasty!

This product works great for putting small potions in the freezer, packaging twice as much at one time. Made Hamburger patties, placed 2 with waxed paper between, this make a choice of 2 patties or 4. work great for packaging 4 count hot dogs instead of a whole package, super for when the grand kids come, they can have a choice of varities instead one just one kind.

Just right for certain foods
I am not sure what I was expecting with the idea of the portion pouch. I ended up using it to make smaller portions of an item like meat balls that I purchase in a large bag. I think it will work well for items that are solid or already frozen and you want smaller portions. It is too hard to put stew in since the top is small.

The FoodSaver took a little getting use to, but once I figured out the seal process, it is extremely easy to use. We use it to freeze sandwich meats, dinner meats, wild game, and everything is easily done and stored in the freezer. Personally, I like the rolls the best to use as it allows the final sealed product to be the smallest possible.
I highly recommend the product.

Great for single households
These bags are perfect for me, I live alone and now I cook extra portions and freeze them separately in the bags...they have saved me a fortune...fast food places are a thing of my past. The bags are pricey and I don't usually re use them, but they are still cost efficient compared to eating out or throwing away spoiled food.

The bags are ideal for our needs.
I have used the Foodsaver machines and bags for many years which has saved us a lot of money by being able to buy in quantity and repackage into smaller portions. I am very excited about the perforated portion pouches because now I can process the meals in small batches and use as many servings as needed to serve my family. Thanks Foodsaver for a wonderful new product.

I absolutely love the portion pouch roll!
This portion pouch roll is my favorite of all the FoodSaver products (with the exception of the FoodSaver itself). You can cut the bag to fit any size you want and have two portions frozen in a single sealing. Great for taking advantage of family size meat sales for the single person or freezing leftovers in single portions!

I love the perforated bags.
I can seal two servings of the same thing separately or I can seal a meat portion and a vegetable portion. I like taking my lunch to work, this allows me to seal a meat portion and a veggie portion and either take to work the next day or freeze and take later. FoodSaver bags take up much less room in my freezer than plastic containers and I can organize them better as well.

Ordered by accident but happy
I thought I was ordering the normal 11" roll, but ended up with the portion pouch one. Was not happy about this until I started using it. I love being able to make up two bags at once. We eat a lot of precooked shrimp, and after the bag is open, it needs a better seal than is supplied with the product bags. I just divide up the rest and load up both sides of the portion pouch.
The other thing that works great is when you have food that you use semi-regularly but want to keep fresh in between. My best example is an avocado. Once I slice part of it, the rest normally turns brown and it gets mushy, even with plastic wrap, ziploc bags, etc. Now I start with a portion pouch that is longer than I need, and each time I use some, I cut the end off, slice what I need, then put the rest back in the bag and reseal. The avocado stays nice and green, and this works a little better than the FoodSaver resealable bags (for me).

Love freezing in the food saver bags
I have used food savers and bags, rolls for about 8 years, currently have two food savers and tried most of the bag types and rolls. Cheaper to use the rolls and make you own bags but takes time, so use bags if in a hurry. The portion bags are nice for small things, like nuts, chopped veggies for stews, and meat portions.

Great idea, but..........
I tried to store pork chops in the Portion Pouch -- I can't get my hand in it, much less store food safely -- my "sucker machine" as my husband would put it -- would not pull all the air out and I had to go to my regular 11" roll. I have to admit I haven't tried the pouch feature with anything else, so will let you know.
