FoodSaver® 11" x 16' Portion Pouch Heat-Seal Roll
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 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 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.

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.

Individual Meals in advance
I received a roll with my new V3880 model. Since everyone in my house seems to be on a different schedule and with different dietary and like issues, this makes individual portions possible without having to make 1/2 bags. I freeze single hamburgers, chicken cutlets and leftovers, and now everyone can chose what they want, when they want. Great designer who came up with these bags!

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!

Fits my needs to a tee!
I recently bought this product because I cook things in batches and freeze it. This product allows me to freeze in individual portions that are just right for one meal at a time! I also buy some meats that come in larger packs than I need for a meal. This product allows me to separate them into individual meals also therefore saving me money at the grocers.

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.

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!

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.

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

best bags for the money.
The quality of the Food Saver bags is so much better than any we have tried. The non meat storage bags are reusable, which makes them an even more economical choice. I have used this brand of bags for over 5 years, and will continue to do so, i shop for sales, buy in quantity, and seal for extended freshness. I have paid for my machine and bag purchases many times over.

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 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.

Size matters to me.
Because I live alone and mostly am freezing things in one portion sizes, I really appreciate the pints. Also, I eat a lot of avocados (grew up on an avocado ranch in southern Calif.) but I always have half left for the next day. With them foodsaver packed I don't lose a lot. They stay like just cut. I can wait two or three days before using the leftover part.

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 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).

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.
June 25, 2013
This size bag is so useful
Since this product became available, I have found so many uses for the portion pouches, from freezing individual boneless chicken breasts to avocado halves. Since there are only two of us, I find they are convenient for splitting up items to use now and freeze for later, from sliced Canadian bacon to jalapeno peppers. I don't know how I lived without them!

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.
March 5, 2013
I use to make these by creating a double seal down the larger bags, this works better, as I'm no longer limited to the length.
Much more cost effective then the wider rolls. We have frozen fish, chicken, and vegetables in these. They are not wide enough for steaks, but you can freeze a whole row of hamburgers then take out what you want and reseal the rest.

An excellent product for long-term storage
I am new to vacuum sealing. The rolls and bags are expensive in relation to store-bought freezer bags, but if you are going to freeze and store foods for months, then it is something that easily pays for itself.
For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), freezer paper and store-bought freezer bags are the better way to go to save money and retain freshness.

Reply to Dan in Miami's sealing problem
I think you have the same problem sealing as I did before I figured out what the problem was. When you store your machine in the closed and locked position, the two rubber gaskets tend to stick to each other when you open the machine. Make sure each gasket is where it belongs before you try to seal. Once this is done, you should have no more problems.

With these you can store more stuff with less waste. If you live alone or just eat at different times or have picky eaters these are you best bang for your buck. I found using the non portion bag that came with the food saver there was a lot of room left in the bag when trying to put in meals for one person. You can not go wrong with these bags.

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.

I got these pouch bags at the store last week and just now tried them. They are HORRIABLE! The pouches are so small you can hardly fit any thing in them. However what is worse is you cant get the bags to seal! I tried repeatedly and they just won't seal. I will NEVER buy this kind again. Not worse the stress plus a BIG waste of money. Not a happy camper there...
