FoodSaver® GameSaver® 11" x 18' Expandable Heat-Seal Rolls, 2 Pack
i use these bags for somehting very different
We have used foodsaver bags for about 8 years now as apackaging solution for shipping laser printer components that have toner in them. Becasue the bags are tough and the machine does a good job of removing air,we are able to save quite a bit of money re-using used compoenet that still ahve a lot of life left in them. If the foodsaver didnt do such a good job at removing all the air and acheiving a tight fit arouind the sealed parts inside the bag,we would not be able to re-use these parts because the toner would escape and contaminate these parts. We are askign qiute a bit form the foodsaver bags and the machine itself and we have not been disappointed

When fresh Colorado peaches are available, I buy several boxes. I prepare sliced peaches with fruit fresh and sugar and cinnamon for the freezer in quart bags. I make homemade pie crust, prepare the peach pie filling, assemble the fresh pies in the pie pans. Then I freeze them on a cookie sheet in the freezer. When frozen solid, I seal them in the large pleated bags. Do not cook the pies before freezing. All through the year, I can just pull a "fresh" pie out of the oven and bake at 425 degrees for about 75 minutes, and we have fresh pie for dessert. These bags keep the frozen pies and frozen fruit just as fresh as the day they were prepared. Love these products!

Just what I needed
For many years, I wished I could put my chicken or turkey in a FoodSaver bag, but they were too small. I had to slice up all the meat and remove the wings, legs, etc. to get it into the smaller bags. When I saw these bags, I jumped at buying them. They are perfect for sealing large items! Their only flaw is that you have to leave several inches extra to account for the height of the food and still be able to seal. It seems wasteful, but if you cut it too short, it won't fold in correctly to allow the bag to seal. If you're going to be opening and closing it several times, you need to leave a long "tail" or you'll have to replace the bag each time.
I will definitely buy these rolls again.

best idea since freeze and steam!
We buy bread and baked goods in bulk at the thrift store. most bread fits ok into bags made from the 11" roll but boxed cakes and donuts were a problem. The pleated roll IS the solution! I always prefreeze my baked goods before sealing so I don't accidentally crush them, vacuum just til it starts to get snug then switch to seal. Be sure to seal two or three times like the directions say, the pleats are pretty thick and need the extra oomph. Also great for frozen casseroles, whole chickens or other large/odd shaped foods. a little pricey but they do work if you follow directions.

Odd sized food
I bake cheesecakes. I get 200+ orders every year for my pumpkin cheesecakes. Before this expandable bag came out I had no way of making cheesecakes ahead of time in fear of freezer burn. The standard size would no accommodate my 2" tall cheesecake, but would a 1.5"..... that darn .5" was screwing up my whole deal. Ever since these bags came out I have started baking in September and using these bags to store them in my deep freezer.

Awesome for those bulky items
I use the expandable bags for whole chickens and turkeys I buy from a local farmer. She only process the birds once a year so I buy several and thanks to the food saver and the expandable bag I can freeze the chicken whole and not worry about freezer burn.

Exactly what I was needing.
The expandable bags are exactly what I was looking for. Processed a lot of large chickens recently and these bags could not have worked any better. They are a little pricey but for long term storage of large items they can't be beat.

Can't beat the quality of this. Have tried other brands and they are no comparison. FoodSaver wins not only on the quality of their sealers, but also the quality of their bags. Loyal customer for life.
