FoodSaver® 11" x 16' Heat-Seal Roll
My husband is our chef; there are only 2 of us at home now but he still loves to cook large quantities of food. Purchaching the FoodSaver was one of the best purchases I've ever made. Now we can freeze the food, in the FoodSaver bags, and whenever we want that meal again...we bring a pot of water to boil, boil the bag until the food is hot and voila! No fuss, no mess! We are campers...this works the very best when we're rv'ing. Can you imagine...the meals while camping are better than most get at home! We love this product!! Love, love, love it!! My husband especially thanks you for the convenience, I thank you because I eat like a queen....

I love everything about these products!!
Foodsaver products are so convenient and easy to use and have saved me and my husband a TON of money and to make it even better, they're soooo affordable! Best investment I've ever made! I will be a customer for life and as far as I'm concerned all Food Saver Rolls and products are amazing and above all others! The only recommendation I have is to put more "Dashes" on the rolls so you can count them out to a certain size if you're trying to cut muliples of the same size bags or trying to replicate the same size bag you used in the past/trying to remember the perfect size you cut for your sliced ham, etc. But other than that it's an exceptional product!

Old Reliable, most used product I buy
I buy meats in bulk and cook entrees in bulk and then freeze for later use. This product has been my go-to as I find the pre-made bags not always suitable for what I am freezing. Some time ago, I brought a gourd of cheese home from Italy. I quartered it and kept one quarter for immediate use and put the other three in this product and refrigerated them. I used the last of it two years after bringing it home. Not a hint of mold or other degradeation to the last quarter. I also buy hard cheese like Pecorino and Parmesan in large blocks and keep them for long periods without loss, resealing them in the same bag as I use portions of it.

I have used all types of Foodsaver Rolls including the 11' roll and even the canisters. I've not had a problem with any of them. We have saved a lot of money since buying the FoodSaver System. I know for a fact food keeps longer than even advertised.
We've had a FoodSaver for years. We have one of the earlier model. I will buy a newer model when this one finally gives out, but to be honest, I don't see that happening for a while.
The only thing I have ever replaced on this one is the gaskets.
Yes I would recommend the FoodSaver system and the FoodSaver Rolls and canisters to anyone if asked.
As my title proclaims the FoodSaver Sysytem is a "great product."

These bags are tough and reusable.
I Have been putting portion sizes of rice, noodles etc. in these bags for convenience. It works nicely when I am tired at the end of the day. I also start the first portion with enough room to reuse the bag three times before it becomes to small, then I use it for spaghetti or udon noodles. I always use the bag for meat or fish last. One rinse with a little vinegar and I can switch foods. It works nicely with fresh vegetables. I just cut up double the amount I want to cook, put half of the raw vegetables in the Saver bags put them in the refrigerator. We don't like the same foods everyday so the bags keep the sliced vegetables fresh until I am ready for the next meal.

Keeps frozen food perfectly!
We live on a lake. Last summer we caught quite a few fish. We cleaned them and I vacuum packed them into the bags, creating different sizes for the different sized fish. This spring my daughter came to visit. Keeping the fish sealed in the bags, I defrosted the fillets in a cool water bath and then we cooked them. They tasted as though they were freshly caught!
We also have a vegetable garden, so I like to create my own bags of various sizes to accommodate what comes out of our garden.
I have bought these bags several times over the years and I just bought several more for the upcoming fishing and gardening season!

Love the product
I save a lot of food using the food saver sealer and bags. Food seems to last forever in my freezer. I have food in there that's been there for over 2 years and it's still fresh when I use it. I don't recommend anyone keeping food this long, but I have and it worked for me. The only thing I would change about the food saver sealer is a design where not so much of the bag is wasted when sealing. I figure I lose at least 3 inches per bag when making and sealing the bag. I also wish I could buy the bags locally as the price of shipping is high, however the money I save on my food bill compensates for that somewhat.

Food saver rolls substituded for a cheap imitation
I ordered 20 food saver rolls and recieved 20 rolls of substitute rolls that were opened and defective. They had slits running down the middle of the rolls. The rolls did not say foodsaver on them and they were flimsy. So flimsy they wouldn't activate the machine to start the pumping process. When I went to return them I read the fine print and it said 100% money back gaurenteed less the cost to ship them to me. I did not order cheap substitute bags and I shouldn't have had to pay the shipping charges and then the subsequent return shipping ! $16.85 for the cheapest return option. I sent them back on 11/05/2015 and have not heard back yet. Hopefully they make good on this purchase.
