FoodSaver® 11" x 16' Heat-Seal Roll
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.

These rolls are great!
I have enjoyed using these bags very much! I can make them any length I choose. I have been a sealing fool ever since I received my machine and the rolls are very easy to use. I use the rolls regulary and have been having great fun figuring out what to use them for next :o)

You won't believe this.
My mother-in-law gave me some Bounce dryer sheets that were filled with highly scented perfume. She put them in a freezer bag. I placed the bag on the kitchen counter to take to the laundry room at a later date. After smelling the perfume filled-air for two days, making us almost sick, my husband wanted to know what that strong perfume smell was that was infiltrating the air. I told him and he said I bet if you put those dryer sheets in a Food Saver bag you won't be able to smell them. He was right! After sealing the dryer sheets in the Food Saver bag, you could not smell them. This proved to us that the freezer bags do not seal completely - even the double zipper lock ones. I am sold on Food Saver products and I am in the process of convincing family and friends to get one!!

11" Rolls - Very user friendly!
I love the rolls for when I need a bag other than the pre-maid sizes. Works great for freezing food!! Note: If I'm bagging something which I may wish to open up at some point and then re-seal, I make sure to add a few inches for each time I think I may need to reseal. That way, when you cut the bag open, you'll still have enough bag left to re-seal.

Perfect for any size item!
I use my FoodSaver several times a day, from resealing cereals to saving leftovers in the freezer and most importantly, storing and protecting freshly purchased meats and produce.
The 11" roll allows me to make any size bag I need, from a tiny one for chopped nuts for tomorrow's baking to extra long ones for my fresh baked french bread loaves!
I often seal as directed, but open from the short end ... for example a pepperoni sausage. I make the bag so that it is a snug fit on the sausage and then as I open it, I cut the sort end and reseal the short end as the sausage gets shorter. I hope that makes sense ... I make a 4" x 11" bag and keep cutting across the 4" end until I eventually end up with a bag as small as 3" x 4"!
Best product that does exactly what it says it will do!

sleek, modern design. A great unit.
I must start by saying that FOODSAVER replaced my first unit,but did so with NO HESITATION. I was really shocked at the willingness to replace it. The customer service rep. was very polite and very willing to find a solution. My new unit is great. I like the look of this one very much. Looks great on my counter. It performs wonderfully. Does the job in record time. I love my FOODSAVER. I use it for freezing large quantities. I know I've saved a lot of money from buying in bulk and then putting my product up in smaller portions. Perfect! And, the bags are usually "on sale".

works great...would recommend to my mother in law
Figuring out how long to make the bags is tricky, too long = wasteful and too short makes it difficult to get into the Foodsaver. Have only had the Foodsaver for about a month and it is my first one.

Best product out there
I just purchased my Foodsaver and I have to say I'm totally in love with this product. It does all it says it will and more. The only thing that would make this product better would be if it did the dishes.. seriously, I waited a long time to purchase this product and it was worth every penny. In hard financial times we need to make the best use of the food we buy. Keeping my food fresh longer just makes sense. I'm growing a garden full of fresh vegetables and then my Foodsaver will get the full workout.

Good product, but a little expensive.
I hate to buy Food Saver rolls at retail stores because the price is way too high. I started buying knock off rolls online that were much cheaper and did the job just fine.
So when the promo offer came to buy Food Saver rolls at a significant discount from retail, I took it. Even with the promo, the Food Saver rolls are a bit more expensive than the knock offs, but I needed some rolls quickly. I really wish Food Saver would charge a fair retail price.

Excellent product to provide meals.
When I retired I wanted to assist others in times of need. I smoke various meats (chicken, sausage, beef, pork, turkey, and chicken) and freeze quanties of various meats to provide the bases of a meal.
When a friend has a need or just to provide a little "pick me up", I provide a meal inclusive of the frozen meat they can serve at their convenience. Using my Foodsaver sealed bags there is nothing they have to return.

11 in rolls
I really like both sizes of the rolls; the 11 inch the best. They are so versatile and easy to use.
I use the rolls more often than the bags as I vacuum pack many various sises and types of foods. With a garden they are so helpful in the preservation of the vegetables.

First of all, the FoodSaver vacuum sealer eliminates freezer burn which means that the food that you sealed tastes just like it did the day you put it in the freezer even a year later . I particularly like the flexibility provided by the full size rolls in that I can create just the proper size bag for the size item I'm freezing. I can prepare a large amount of meat or chicken and then seal the portion sizes I want for use at a later date. It does not matter whether or not the item I am vacuum sealing has been cooked or uncooked, it always comes out in the exact same condition as when I sealed it. The cost of the rolls are very reasonable and the sealer unit I bought years ago is still working perfectly. I highly recommend this product.

Love, Love my Food Saver!
Just purchased additional rolls of wrap for my newest, favorite kitchen helper! The Food Saver does just that....saves food! Keeps meat or vegetables fresh for months! Just took out okra frozen in July of 2013, it was bright green and tasted fresh when cooked! When I froze it in freezer bags, it never looked or tasted like that! I highly recommend this product to all my friends....you will not be disappointed!

Strong and versatile
I like the size of the rolls they are very versatile. I seal everything from venison to deserts even soup. They very strong and hold up well in the freezer for a long time. I have tried others but they don't compare.

Food Saver really does save food and money!
I have been using a food saver ever since it was invented! I could not live without it. My husband goes fishing and hunting so its the perfect product to preserve his catch from season to season. We also like to grill, so we can fill it up with meat and have many meals ready to eat because of the food saver and the highest quality bags.There is NEVER any freezer burn! Thanks so much for your product!

quick seals products, easy to use.
I have been using my machine on a regular basis and find it easy to use and do not have to spend alot of time getting the jobs done after a trip to Sam's Club with bulk items. Saves space in my deep freezer and also makes identiying items much easy than zip lock bags. Also notice food is fresher and taste does not deteriorate as fast. this is my first purchase of this type of product and I am very pleased with the quality and usefullness of this product. I haghly recommend it for anyone thinking of purchasing a food saver or vaccum sealer.

This product is great!
I have had this vacuum sealer for about 5 years now. I think it is one of the best things we purchased. Being retired and shopping for just the two of us was quite a challenge. We would need to throw out good food because it got freezer burn before we were able to use it. Now we are saving a lot by using these freezer bags.
Thank you FoodSaver.
From us you are number one.

Easy to use for many items.
The 11" roles will fit larger items like Baby Back Ribs, cut to fit to save for freezing.
Gallon Bags are great for bigger roast, Chicken wings, etc. Ears of corn, Steaks, chops.
Quart bags fit almost everything you need to seal.
Great Invention ever made. Got the sealer for Christmas 2007, used it Hundred's of times, just replaced seals and going full steam ahead.

Bigger then I thought
I went out to get more the first time I used the large roll as I did not know just how big it truly was. To my surprise it did way more then I figured it would. I think it is great for larger items and the cost is truly not that bad if you figure all you can seal in just one roll. I just came home from a hunting trip and had 2 deer to cut and wrap or seal and I only used one of the large rolls and 2 of the smaller rolls and we had 85 pounds of meat to seal up. Did a great job and now I have several rolls for the elk that is next.

Since my only purchase this time was a bag option I am rating on that feature alone. As always, the offer included a couple of "bonuses" and I am delighted. I don't believe I have ever made a purchase that has worked into my life better than my Foodsaver. It is a very rare day indeed that I do not use this product. The only one I ever had trouble with was the front feeding one and I simply went back - as soon as I could - to the great one that allows feeding in a normal way! Thank you for a really wonderful product.

Great for items you want to reseal multiple times!
Most of the time I use the premade bags but its important to have a roll of material for longer than average items or items you want to reseal multiple times. When I buy cheese in bulk sizes I make a long bag and seal it, then I cut the end seal remove what I need then reseal the same bag over and over.

Continues to be the only size I buy - 8 years now
11" rolls where I create whatever size I want works to best for me & my husband. Everything from pesto, fresh fish, almonds, dry herbs/spices (all I can think of right now) all keep fresh in my freezer. Additionally we stock up on bread or make extra loaves because it also keeps very well - just as fresh as when we freeze it. While we only keep the fish & bread for less than 45 days in the freezer, and always nuts & herbs/spices a lot longer sometimes more than a year and they've kept just fine.

For sealing larger items
This product allows the user to make large storage bags sized to meet individual needs. I use mine primarily for freezing savory pies (chicken pot pies, quiches, frittatas, etc.). It is handy to have these to share with someone who is in need (sick, hospitalized family, bereaved) or when I am in need of a quick go-to meal. It is so easy to double or triple a recipe for freezing purposes, confident that your work will not be lost to freezer burn, but will come out as fresh as it went in.

This product is good.
I order the rolls of products so I can make my own size bags. The rolls are always in good shape when I get them. I haven't had any issues with them holding the seals or keeping the air out.

Not what I expected
The product is good but the package it came in really stinks.When I ordered 5 rolls it showed a boxed roll on the website. I was expecting 1 roll per box as I was going to give these as a Christmas present to a few of my friends and family. What I got was a box with 5 rolls bulk in a box. very difficult to present these as presents.So yes, I am Very Disappointed ! You should sell what you show...

Penny Wise And Pound Foolish
I've discovered that old saying applies to the cost of a Foodsaver. If you don't want to spend the money on the foodsaver and bags then spend the money on food that get's thrown away or tastes like it's been in the freezer too long. That's being penny wise and pound foolish. Over the course of a year the foodsaver and foodsaver bags saved me much, much more money than I spend. Food that's been in the freezer for a year comes out tasting just as fresh as the day I vacuum sealed it.

I'm a trout and salmon fisherman. When fishing is good, we have a lot to freeze. I tried everything and this method keeps the fish for months longer than any other method and never has freezer burn. The quality of the fish after a few months, when most fish would no longer be fit to eat, is almost as good as the day that it was caught.
The system works great at home for an unlimited number of uses. It's not just for food. Store anything in air tight, water proof bags.

I have always liked products,my freezer is filled with items vac sealed with your bags

How to save your food!!!
I am never without sealer bags, I make up several at a time, then when the leftovers are cool, I put them in a bag, fold it over and put it in the freezer....the next morning I then extract the air and my food is ready for another meal or as a supliment to a lunch. My food never gets freezer burn and I would be at a loss without my food saver, the zip up kind of bags do not keep out freezer burn and in fact, do not keep out the air for very long at all.
