FoodSaver® 8" x 20' Heat-Seal Roll, 2 Pack
Love the bags; the sealer overheats
We use FoodSaver ALOT. We catch salmon all summer on Lake Michigan, Food Save it, and enjoy eating it all winter. The bags work great, although they are a bit expensive. Buying in bulk helps make them more affordable. I wish they would design the sealer to not use so much of the bag when making the seal. Also, the models we have (we have 2- one at home and one on the boat) overheat very quickly. It slows down the process, when you have to wait for it to cool down between packages. I know they came out with a new version that addresses this, but the units we have aren't ready to be replaced.
Despite these concerns, we love it and use it all the time.

The 8" bag is my go-to item. Was my most used item when there was 2 of us. Now there is just me. Hard to cook for 1, so I don't!. I cook for 2 or more as I always have. Left-overs go in a Food Saver cut to the size I need and I have a meal ready to drop in boiling water when I am on the go or just plain do not feel like cooking. Also, my kids and grandkids know that there is always a meal in waiting when they show up unexpected, which is often. They love to 'shop' in Grandma's freezer. Even the vegetarian can find her special meals.

Purchased bags from Cabelas store, will never do that again!!! Learned the hard way, not all bags seal the same. Will always purchase Food Saver bags. Never had any problems with them. We buy extra large bags of frozen fruit and veggies, as it is cheaper, then bring them home and make smaller portions in our Food Saver. Buying bags online is handier and less expensive.

I Love My Foodsaver!
My Foodsaver is terrific, and these bags work great! I love having the narrower bags because they're the perfect size for many things I freeze. I made dozens of batches of pesto from the fresh basil in my garden, froze it in containers, and popped it out and sealed it in my Foodsaver bags. It stays fresh and delicious all winter, to use when I need a taste of summer.

food stays fresh
I've been sending homemade goodies to our troops in Iraq & Afghanistan for 10 years and have used your product to keep these items fresh for their journey overseas. I always receive positive feedback from the men and women who serve that everything is fresh even though it could take 2-3 weeks to get to them. I've even sent individual slices of apple pie!

I use only the 8" wide rolls. It is difficult to find these in the stores without other sized rolls or bags in the same boxes---those are just a waste of money and space for me. So, being able to order exactly what I want directly from the FoodSaver site when I can't find it locally is worth the additional shipping charge to me.

11 inch pleated bags are very hard to use!
I liked the 8 inch bags I bought, but I really wanted the 11 inchers. I didn't order the 11 inchers because I was afraid you'd send me the pleated ones that don't work well at all. I have to boxes of the pleated ones that I don't use at all, except during and emergences.

I love this system. The bags work excellent for what they were designed to do. I have been using these bags for years and have yet to be disappointed. The fact that they have a bag for virtually every need makes it worth every penny. Anyone wanting to save money can't go wrong with these bags.
