FoodSaver® 11" x 16' Expandable Heat Seal Rolls, 2 Pack
Incredible product highly recommend to everyone
The Food Saver and all its product have proven time and time again to be the best investment for a household. I have been using FoodSaver since the early 90's and give it as gifts to everyone in my family. It is easy to use and the expansion of time it keeps food fresh tasting is amazing. I love not having freezer burn on my food and I know that by removing all the air, the life of the product is lengthened. The bags are incredible. I boil, I microwave, and I freeze with them. The new expandable ones come in very handy... I am a hunter and some of the pieces of meat I process are larger than the gallon size bags will hold easily. Thank you for making my life easier. I

I have been a customer of FoodSaver for many years! I use my foodsaver at least once a week. For Christmas I received the FoodSaver® 11" Expandable Heat Seal Rolls, 2-Pack. They are HORRIBLE!!! It's probably one of the worst products you've come out with. We made 8 racks of ribs and these were the bags I had to use. Trying to tuck in the sides and get it correctly in the machine was so frustrating. I ended up wasting more bags than I should have and therefore money is in my trash can. Since my most recent order of bags hasn't shipped yet I was forced to use these. Worst Christmas gift ever!!! And yes I know how to put bags correctly in the machine, these were just really difficult to do.

Great addition to the produce line
I've used this expandable bag only once so far but am very happy to have it available. I made a deep dish rhubarb pie, froze it and then packaged it in the expandable bag. I love being able to see what I have frozen instead of having to use foil. I love being able to make and freeze several pies in season. Before, the 11" bags just weren't wide enough even for an 8" foil pie tin. I can see where this expandable bag will come in handy for whole chickens, large roasts and many other bulky items that couldn't be sealed before.

Storing dry goods just got simple!
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.

Not easy to use
I only got these bags to seal twice out of 8 uses.. Even after tucking in the pleats and making sure the end was flat - it still failed to get all the air out and ended up sealing with it not being airtight. On top of that you need to use 5 extra inches - not a good value!

Great idea but hard to seal
I've been loving the system for a number of years and was excited to find the pleated bags for larger items however, I must say that so far this item is missing its mark! I'm trying to seal casseroles and despite following all the instructions, it's just not pulling the air out. I was hoping to find some online tips and nothing was available.

Not as good as the original
These rolls were the only ones available at my local Bed Bath and Beyond. I didn't realize they were pleated until I had them home. I use my Foodsaver constantly and these pleated bags were very difficult. They were difficult to cut, difficult to fill and very difficult to seal. It seemed I was using an extra large portion of bag and they didn't properly remove the air and seal. I will not buy this product again.

I had an 8lb roast that would not fit in the 11" roll. This expandable roll worked out great. Was easy to use and a must for anyone with extra large items to seal.
