FoodSaver® GameSaver® 11" x 12' Heavy-Duty Heat-Seal Gallon Rolls, 2 Pack
Great Products just way too expensive
These are great bags but you're paying way too much of a premium for the FoodSaver brand name. I purchased these on sales buy one, get one free from the FoodSaver website and compared them to some generic ones that I purchased on Amazon. The Generic product arrived in 2 days with Amazon Prime shipping. The FoodSaver shipping was free as I had reached thier $75 free shipping minimum threshold. Even at BOGO Free, the generic rolls were 1/4 of the price of the FoodSaver brand per linear foot. The generic bags were of similar quality so the value of the FoodSaver brand is very poor. I will be very interested to see if this review is actually posted.

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.

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.

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.

I'm having trouble getting my sealing machine to work, model V4865. We bought this at Christmas 3 months ago. I constantly have to wiggle bag and move it around to get the sealer to start. It is so frustrating I would take it back ,but we bought it from your website. I have an older Foodsaver sealer and it Never gave me this kind of kind of trouble. it finally stopped removing all the air, so we bought this new one. Had the old one maybe 20 years. But I'm ready to get a new one already ater only 3 months.

I HAD TO CALL CUSTOMER SERVICE BECAUSE I MADE A MISTAKE AND AS SOON AS I CALLED. THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVED. ONE OF THE SMARTEST THINGS I EVER DID.THANK YOU R NICHOLAS

What can I say? Terrific!
I have always wanted to use a food saver, but never wanted to invest the money that it cost to purchase the bags for it. My husband is a meat manager at a local grocery store, so this is a dream come true for him. With your company it is not a problem anymore to acquire bags for my machine and at a great price. I purchased my latest order on your BOGO deal. The price per box comes to 20 to 30 % less then the super giant retailer in my area.
Thank you so much.

Foodsaver is just that, an excellant food saver .
I have saved so much money by using my Foodsaver. No more freezer burned food to throw away ! It is so easy to use and supplies are very reasonably priced. The neat and compact packages make them easy to store in my freezer and I can see what's in the packages. Even though there are only two of us I am able to buy in bulk and when i get home from shopping I use my Foodsaver right away. Foodsaver is my favorite small appliance.
