FoodSaver® 8" x 20' Heat-Seal Roll
The best bag in a roll out there!
I was given a Black & Decker Vacuum Sealer for a gift. The bags that came with it were constantly failing to seal. I bought an 8" roll package of bags by Food Saver and I have never looked back. They seal every time!
I mostly use the 8" size, because I live alone and that is perfect for the portions I freeze. But occasionally I need the 11" for larger portions, like roasts, or casseroles that I freeze.
I have recommended Food Saver products to many of my friends and even to strangers I have met in the store. When my Black & Decker wears out, I will most certainly purchase a Food Saver Vacuum System to go with the bags. :)

FoodSaver has saved me LOTS of $$$$$
I've had my FoodSaver for about 3 years, and can't imagine my kitchen without one. I'm absolutely sure I've recouped the cost, maybe even several times, from not throwing away freezer-burned food, not discarding moldy cheese, and from a thoroughly effective way to freeze the bounty from our home garden. Leftovers are as good as the freshly cooked dish, and my husband (not normally a leftover fan) agrees. We're a two person household, and I LOVE to cook, and can now do it in quantity, assured that everything will be ready to reheat quickly and deliciously. I prefer the rolls instead of premade bags, as they give me the ultimate flexibility in the quantities I prepare for the freezer.

If one has a garden a Foodsaver is a must have!
For years I discussed purchasing a vacuum sealer for my garden and berry goodies. I purchased one that wasn't a Foodsaver. My husband read reviews on it and found it wasn't going to work for us. He discovered the Foodsaver had the highest rating and had me return my purchase and order a Professional lll Plus that offered repeditve sealing without having to wait between each sealing.
We been putting it through a lot of use in the last two weeks, sealing berries and beans from the garden and it works as advertised. Just a great addition to my kitchen tools, don't know why I waited so long to get one.

Product is extremely cost saving
I have been using Foodsaver products for years. I have yet to order and receive any which are flawed. Quality control on the products must be excellent. I make all my homemade soups in batches. 24 quarts per batch. I freeze them first in containers. (2 cups per container), when frozen hard, out of the containers and into my foodsaver bags, then labeled. I have soups for a year at least and could have them longer. Great product, machine is easy to use, and never fails. If mine ever goes bad, I will immediately purchase another on. Although, I have yet to have to do so. Great product.

8" roll are perfect for doing smaller portions
After holidays we have leftover ham, beef, chocolate chips, nuts, cranberries and candies. Perfect for doing small batches as I shell lots of walnuts & pecans. Put up tamales for overnight hotel stays. Also smoked cheese sausage already baked in bisquits. Great for 11 year old boys after skateboarding around hotel or swimming in pool or ocean. Most rooms have microwaves. Freeze one and one-half # bags of flour to prevent bug infestation. Even freeze excess pills to prevent moisture exposure in bathrooms. With dry products, can re-use. Tried other brands years ago, but never again.

The 8" rolls are a perfect size.
I purchased a FoodSaver a few months ago and I am very happy with my purchase. I use the 8" rolls more than anything and I find this size is perfect for my needs. I have however, used the 11" rolls as well for larger items. I buy in bulk and since using my FoodSaver for smaller portions, I am not discarding as much food as I used to. My FoodSaver has saved me a lot of time and money. It is truly one of the most used appliances in my kitchen. I find myself using it to seal all food items that are in bags such as, chips, rice, bread, frozen foods, etc.

My Go To Size
I use the 8" rolls most often in my food preservation. We put up our own beef, and the butcher wrap that the shop uses is not good for more than a few months before freezer burn starts. With the Foodsaver rolls made into bags, I have kept beef for 2 years or more with no freezer burn or loss of food quality. Care must be used with sharp bones, like quail ribs, as they will puncture the bag and cause a loss of vacuum, but other than that, I've never had any issues with the Foodsaver brands. Using the system is a great way to extend the life of your frozen foods!!

This product lets me seal anything
Can't tell you how much I love the 8" roll. I cut off the size I intend to use and whalla!! We fish, go to farmer's markets, and I am a very good cook who tends to cook in large quantities (probably because we had six kids in the family and with my Mother working, I prepared the meals and large they were. We are leaving next week to go camping and taking our 8 year old Grandson who lives for camping. I already roasted turkey legs (his favorite meal) and vacuum sealed them. I made applesauce, cooled it, and put equal amounts into bags. Love the product.
