FoodSaver® GameSaver® 11" x 12' Heavy-Duty Heat-Seal Gallon Rolls, 2 Pack
The best foodsaver bags
These bags are the highest quality bags that they make. They are much thicker than your standard foodsaver bags and I would recommend using them for anything that you plan on storing more than 6 months in the freezer. They are perfect for soup - just freeze the bags and when you are ready to use them throw a bag in a pot of water and heat it up until the contents are the right temperature. They can withstand the boiling water no problem.
The only comment I would add is to make sure there are no folds by your seal. Since these bags are much thicker even a small fold will cause sealing issues as the heating element won't be able to melt that much plastic.

Very good product
I got these while they were on sale, and got incredible value for my money. These are very thick plastic, and I used them to portion out grains/sugars/salts/pork and beef. I had no problem sealing them, and no problems with them leaking, unlike the regular thickness rolls. For the deal I got, this was amazing!! I highly recommend, even if they aren't on incredible sales, as their thickness lends them to more purposes!!

The heavy duty gallon size heat seal product I purchases was for freezing fresh fruits such as strawberries, peaches, pears, plums, blackberries and raspberries. I took a home made wine making class last year and have really gotten in to making home made wine. When freezing fresh fruits such as mentioned above, the freezing helps break down the cell walls in the fruits and easier to extract the juices for making home made wine. These heavy duty bags will keep the fruits fresh frozen for quite some time before they are needed. I lay the berries out on a large baking pan and freeze individually before packing and sealing.

I need help
My V2420 Food Saver is not working as well with the Heavy Duty Seal Rolls as the lighter duty rolls. Perhaps it's the type of Vacuum pack machine but it does not seem to have enough power to extract the air out of the Heavy Duty Seal Roll before sealing. I would appreciate any recommendation you may have.

These bags are tough.
The heavy duty bags are tough enough to stand up to the hard sharp edges of dehydrated vegetables. The regular bags often had leaks when filled with brocolli or corn kernals.

Stop failed bags!
Fish pin and rib bones kept poking through my bags. These heavy bags help greatly.

Good to excellent
Takes a little longer in the seal cycle - probably due to the thickness, but seals great, food looks fresh (checked it in the freezer for the review), and still a tight seal.

I didn't need to buy the heavy duty and I think monthly they should have BOGO on all the supplies. But it was a good deal. I also think they should take the old machines as trade-ups for a newer one. With a decent Discount on the new on for the old one.
They should also suggest a trial on some of the items like sending out a sample item like to wine bottle tops, or a small canister to test out.
Last but not least, Why don't they make a wider Machine? Preferably a either 16 or 18 in. wide bags and a machine to seal them.
People who bake or cook a lot would be able to prepare meals in advance for the whole family for weeks in advance.
Just a thought.
Also used for Hunting season.
