FoodSaver® GameSaver® 11" x 16' Portion Pouch Heat-Seal Rolls, 2 Pack
So far, I've cooked up 3 lbs of bacon (in bits) and put ¼ - ½ lb in each portion then just reheated when I need it in a recipe. This keeps my kitchen “grease-free” most of the time, but still lets me use the bacon for flavoring when needed without making a bigger mess. I found that since I can’t fold the tops down to keep the edge clean for sealing, I need to use a funnel inserted into the pack in order to put the food in the packages. Bacon grease doesn’t wipe off easily, but this is more cost effective than using up the quart size bags, and I don’t really like the rolls as much..

Excellant Product, as are all the foodsaver produc
I am a believer in the foodsaver system. I have 2 of them, one at my home and one at my fiancees home. I use them for everything I freeze from soup to deserts to meats and vegatables. The portion pouches are great for cheese, sausage and cracker packs getting ready for a football party. I also use them for all the meat spreds I use and have to put back in the fridge and nothing gets moldy or spoils before I get to use it again. I make the bags long enough that I can cut them open and reseal them when I'm finished with them. Thank you for a great product and keep up the good work.

FoodSaver saves me time, money, & no waste
Have had a FoodSaver since they first were sold. I have had to replace them several times. (My daughter says that because I use my FoodSaver more in a day than most people use one in a month. A bit exaggerated.) My husband is a vegetarian & his "veggie meat/patties" are very poorly packaged. I vacuum seal the individual portions - no freezer burn & ready to grab. I accidently placed a box of sealed beanburgers in the back of the freezer -the expiration date on the box was over 6 months past. My husband said to let him try one. He said he could taste no difference in a "fresh frozen patty" & the "expired one." Thank you FoodSaver.
I also use the steamer bags, the resealable bags & make my own bags from the rolls. Again, Thank You!

Love these handy bags!
I saw these perforated bags advertised on QVC with the newest FoodSaver sealing machine and thought, "What a great idea!" So I jumped on the FoodSaver website and ordered several boxes. As a new customer I also received a discount! Awesome! Tried them with several pounds of burger and stew beef two weeks ago. So far everything comes out of the bag like it was fresh meat. I can use one or two pounds of burger (or however I've divided them up between the bags ... which I have marked with my trusty kitchen marker). They are so easy to use and very convenient. I highly recommend them!

I use your product differently than you planned
I separate the roll into two 5 1/2" wide rolls and make small individual servings that are handy to use. I buy in bulk to save money and repackage. There is just me and the wife and we're 70 yrs. old. We also cook in bulk and package individual portions to freeze for an easy to prepare meal anytime. We also freeze individual cooked portions that we take to my 98 yr. old mother-in-law who lives by herself on her farm 500 miles away. We visit every 3 months and fill her freezer with 3 months of pre-cooked, portion packaged food that she can heat and eat.

long needed product
Really am happy, that you finally developed this item.
There is one thing you could improve.
Improvement should be, that you can easily tear the frozen packages apart and not have to use siccors.
Like, that you never have to worry about the food to be frozen, to end up with freezer burn or pick up smells, tastes from other items in your freezer.

Just as easy to use as other rolls
I have been a long time FoodSaver user. bags / rolls are getting harder to find in stores, and they are getting very expensive.

Thank you, FoodSaver!
I received my 11" and Portion Pouch rolls just in time to seal up my 8lbs of homemade BBQ pork and 5lbs of hard cheeses. The 11" wide roll made it very easy to create right-sized bags for meal sized portions of the BBQ. That helped calm my wife from being concerned about "Who's going to eat all of that before it goes bad?" Similarly, the Portion Pouch roll was perfect for sealing "usuable" chunks of the hard cheeses I brought home. To me buying and cooking in bulk makes $en$e. I try to be a smart shopper and take advantage of sales and quantity buying, getting spare ribs at $1.99lb is my idea of a SALE. However, when they're sold in large cryovac bags, my previousl choices were to cook them all at once or freeze them all at once. I found it too much of a hassel trying to open the bags and repackage and feeze them in smaller quantities. More often than not, they were freezer burned by the time I wanted to use them. NOT ANYMORE! With these FoodSaver products, being able to seal and store right-sized portions makes MORE $en$e and definitely increases the $aving$!
Thanks again, FoodSaver!
