FoodSaver® Freeze 'N Steam™ Microwave Quart Heal-Seal Cooking Bags,16 Count
microwave steamer bags - great product
I purchased a box of those microwave steamer bags over a year ago, by mistake. i didn't use them until a few months ago. i had purchased tamales trader joes, which come two in a package. i only eat one for a meal so i wanted to freeze the other. i decided to finally give the microwave bag a try. when i took the tamale out to have it, i stuck it in the microwave and it came out moist and better than it turned out just on a place. by now, i've used the entire box so i needed more. i couldnt' fine them at kohls, walmart, or bed bath and beyond, so i bought them on line. i hope you don't stop making them -- theyr'e a wonderful secret!!!

It works great and easy-to-use
I used the bags with some vegetables and seasoning then place them in the freezer. About a week later I got them out of the freezer and saw the cooking time on the bag. Then I set the microwave and place them in the microwave. They time on the bag is good but you will have to adjust it to your microwave on the temperature on what wattage your microwave is for the best cooking. The bag blows up and the relief bows built into the bag relieve some of the pressure to keep from popping and cooks it with just a little steam and pressure. It is easy to use for a self proportion meal and a 2 1/2 cup proportion for this bag size. It is good for a precooked meat to warm up from the freezer.

Good for food that has low moisture contents
Works great for food that has low moisture. But for the food that has high moisture, after I vacuum sealed the food, the air filled up inside the bag after 30 second. I checked the seal but i did not notice any leak. It will be better if this bag is designed to block the moisture getting through the bag during vacuum sealed especially for the price. I now only use it to vacuum sealed low moisture food and it's fine. I did ordered more even it only works for low moisture food. I like to heat and steam the food in microwave. Food doesn't dry out.

This is a great buy!
I was so excited when I seen this product available for Food saver.
We always buy our veggies in bulk and freeze them in Foodsaver
bags. But when I seen that I could purchase steamer bags for the microwave from Food saver I couldn't order them fast enough.
So easy to fill with just the amount we would consume and freeze.
Then when ever we wanted just pull from the freezer and minutes in the microwave "Voila" perfect veggies. I had just bought a steamer for this purpose but it will sit in the pantry now because this is so easy! The bags are reasonably priced and I got in on a buy one get one free order so it was doubly nice. We will never have to cook veggies again and lose all the flavor.
These are fabulous freezer bags.
Recommend this to all I know.

Easy to use.
I bought these so I could buy and store seasonal vegetables that we don't grow in our garden. I recently found a good deal on asparagus and bought more than usual. I blanched them and stored them in meal size portions.
I just used one last night. The cooking guide is right on the bag, so there is no guessing. The bag saves using another dish for preparation. Also, storing in the vacuum bag and then steaming prevents degradation. The asparagus were great, cooked to perfection!
These bags are definitely a plus!

LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM
I am on a low carb diet and these bags are wonderful...I put a chicken breast, some veggies,and seasoning. I then seal and freeze them. I grab a bag out of the freezer take it to work and at lunch put in the microwave and cook for 20 min and have a great low carb meal!! I've also used fish and placed a half of a fresh lemond in with it and when it cooks its flavors the fish just right. The steam bags have made it so much easier to stay on the diet and its fun to create your own microwave meals. Thanks

Freeze and steam
We just finished Thanksgiving dinner and the leftovers went right into the Freeze and Steam bags and into the freezer. I am amazed at the versatile you continue to offer. Later that night, I was talking to my daughter who lives in another state and was visiting when I first got my Food Saver. She went home and told her boyfriend's mother about it. She just bought one. Now they are planning on buying one for their mother for Christmas. Thanks for such a wonderful product.

A bit too large
This bag holds a lot of food! I like to make soup and save it for my kids. I use the quart-size bags b/c there is no other size of microwave bags. It is a pleasure to use them and wonderful to put them in the microwave and not worry that they'll explode, however, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE FOODSAVER MAKE A PINT SIZE MICROWAVE BAG! They are expense and a portion-size for soup is about 2 cups max. These bags can hold almost 4 cups so I feel like I'm wasting money on using such a large bag.
