FoodSaver® Liquid Block Heat-Seal Quart Bags, 12 Count
The Best Products I've Found
Since I discovered Food Saver, I can't say enough about them. The Bags are easy to use to store anything, not just frozen foods, but they are why I bought the Food Saver. I was having to throw away frozen foods from two freezers because of freezer burns and it was costing my family money we couldn't afford to waste. I had used another product on the market and enjoyed it but then it was discontinued and I started seeing advertisements on TV about Food Saver and went online and was glad I did. After reading everything I could find, I bought one and my husband and I have a great time using it. We actually save money with the item and I'd recommend it to anybody.

Too small and expensive
I bought these bags hoping I can use instead of 11 inch roll for sealing any item that has high moisture like steaks, fish and chicken. The bags do have the strip on top to trap moisture but are very small; they are 8 inch instead of 11 and are not able to hold more than 1 steak or chicken breast. At around $1 a bag, they are way to expensive to hold a single steak. I use the vacuum sealer to store bulk food items that i purchase in freezer for a family of 5 and cannot afford to spend $5 to store 5 steaks for 1 meal. This would be a great bag if it was larger (11 inches wide instead of 8) and I can hold more food.

This is great for anything with moisture.
I had been putting cut paper towells in the tops of bags before sealing to cut down on wetness in the machine. When I saw that foodsaver finally made bags with the towelling in them, I was exstatic and bought a box. When that ran low, I ordered 6 boxes. My husband and I shop about once every 3 to 4 weeks so we buy meat in bulk packages. After we get home, we seperate, for example, 6 chicken breasts, and put one in a bag. Having an upright freezer makes cooking so much easier now and if someone stops by at dinner time, I just take another out of the freezer, nuke to defrost and cook. Life is easier with foodsaver.

no more frustration!!!
prior to the holidays i bought a spiral ham on sale for the freezer with plans to use the food saver. i spent what ended up being 2 hours on one ham!! It kept filling up the tray with liquid and not completely sealing. How annoying. i was really frustrated. i bought the moisture block bags and was so very happy. i guess someone else had my same problem. i bought some juicy porkchops on sale and used the moisture block bags and was done in 15 minutes, these bags are very large for quart size and whoever invented this moisture seal was a genius!! No more problems with moisure overflow or incomplete seals. love it!!

Lose of some flavor
If you are going to use these bags, I would suggest that you pre-freeze your meat first. When using the bags before the pre-freeze you will lose all or most of all the juices that are in your meat. I have given this product only 3 stars since it requires an extra step to bag my meat.
I have several other products from Food Saver and love them. My family thinks I am crazy when I buy the meat on sale and pack my freezer. At least I don't have to go shopping for meat every week or two.
Again, since I have an extra step with these bags I have given it a 3 star. If you pre-freeze the meat, the bags will do what they are suppose to, capture the fluids before going into the vacuum cup.

Added feature and double the bag.
No more need to insert paper to absorb the back flow of liquid from meat/juicy fruit to the drip tray. Instead of freezing item(s) to make them stiff, just put them in the bag. To save waste and if you're into really small portion control, cut the bag in half (length wise) and seal the new sides. After I buy the celery I wash/rinse and let it drip/dry for awhile. The same for whole pineapple (the core). Cut it up into slices, let it drip/dry for for a while. The water from washing the celery (which will make them soft and less crispy) and juice from the pineapple will be mostly drained and you won't have any waste from a narrower bag. This would be for tall/slender fruit/meat.

Freezing WATER for Cooler
I have always been irritated by the ice cube bags you buy for your cooler. They leak in the bottom of the cooler and everything gets wet. I had an idea that maybe I could freeze water in the food saver bags. I cut a bag the size of the bottom of the cooler (a little bigger for sealing) and filled it with water about 6 inches or so from the top. This is tricky, you need to be able to hold the heavy bag with water (help from someone or place on a box to keep off counter) and just seal the bag. Try to keep as much air out as possible. You cannot use the vacuum and seal option, JUST THE SEAL. I have two in the freezer now and have given them away to friends. They are awesome!! Don't leak!

Performed better than expected
Got a box of these bags not expecting much. I had several packages of chicken breast, wings and legs that I wanted to pack in marinade for the freezer.
Now I use a good bit of marinade in each bag and I was expecting some to leak through but as long as it sealed I was okay with that. What I found was that NONE of the liquid leaked through before sealing. Went though the entire box using a variety of marinades both thick and thin...from lemon pepper vinegarette to a thick teriaki and a sesame ginger that was in between. Not ONE leak through!
I'm gonna get brave and try some chili next...
