FoodSaver® 8" x 20' Heat-Seal Roll, 2 Pack
If you have a problem with the seal, try this.
Roll the edges of the bag down 3" before filling. Make sure the areas that will be sealed are dry and have no food particles on them. This should take care of the sealing not staying sealed.I was given this hint by a friend, thank you friend, and used my new FoodSaver Gamesaver Bronze tonight with perfect results. I LOVE IT!

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.

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.

Way better than zippered bags...
Buying meat in bulk, this is the best way to package & store in the freezer...easy to operate the machine, bags are well made & keep everything perfect.
Wish I'd have bought this years ago...but glad I have it now!!!

I really like the value that I get on these bags
My husband and I like to purchase things in bulk when we can. Food saver gives us a way to keep the food fresh and tasty.

The right size for the right sized stuff!
The smaller bags work well for anything that isn't that big - right huh! The rolls I can determine how long for whatever is needed. Love these bags and I buy in bulk to always have on hand.
