FoodSaver® 11" Expandable Heat Seal Roll
This product has surprise uses
I bought the expandable bags with the thought of freezing whole chickens and other large meat products and experimented with using them for refrigerating large quantities of salad before a party and keeping two or three homemade pies together in the freezer. I was surprised to find I could use found the expandable bags for keeping extra clothes and lanterns dry while on a raft trip. Good product!

Great for bulky items.
The expandable heat seal roll allows for foods that are
to large and bulky for the regular size rolls. Good for
breads and bakery items if you freeze them first to
become firm then vacuum seal and return to freezer.

If you are going to "invest" in such things as stand rib roasts the least you can do is provide excellent safety with freezing. I buy on sale, install in Food Saver bag, freeze, and then can cook the roast from frozen with absolutely no deterioration in quality.

I couldn't be happier !
I bought my Food Saver machine about 2 months ago and I am stoked at how easy it is to use, how much money you can save buying in bulk and food saving it and not to mention the extended "shelf" life of the food you seal. I ordered several bags/rolls and Im set for a long time ! I saved quite a bit of money buying from the Food Saver website vs buying the products from the local stores. I just regret not getting this machine years ago !

I wasn't happy with the expandable bags.
This expandable bags is a pain to use. With my new V3880 I received 3 or 4 rolls of them. If you cut one off lets say 4 inches extra bag not 5inches or 6 or 7 it is difficult to fold the bag back up and get it in the sealer to vacuum it closed. You have to cut these bags off much longer then the normal 11 inch bag. If I'm correct the roll is shorter then the rolls of 11 inch thus causing you to blow through a box in no time at all. I will not be buying any of these bags unless I can find a real reason for them.

this product solves all problems with large meat
I have been able to seal and freeze beef rib roasts, turkeys, multiple whole pork loins and more. This is my favorite product thus far, the convenience and ability to hold large meat items has solved a lot of problems for me.

Perfect for standing rib roast
I bought a real nice 5 rib standing roast and was not able to cook it right away. I was so worried, it has been in the freezer for over 2 weeks. I got an e-mail from foodsaver and to my suprise I found this expandable heat seal. Perfect! I ordered it and I got it in less than 2 days, brushed the ice off the rib roast and Walla! As good as fresh! It's hard to find these standing rib roast, so I buy them when I find them. I'm thinking of using the same bag to marinate it in, when I am ready to cook it.

A big waste of time and money!
I tried unsuccessfully to use this product twice to seal a 9x9 casserole dish and finally gave up and used what I usually use, a 2 gallon zip top bag. I followed the directions very closely, but just wasn't able to get the bag to seal. I deeply regret purchasing this item and will never purchase it again. I would not recommend the product to anyone. I think the idea is good, but it just doesn't work.

Now what was expected
This proudct looks great and might work great if you have a newer vacuum sealer. I however do not have a newer model, the bags did not seal correctly. It took several attempts before I gave up and used normal bags. I however will say that the nornal bags for my food saver work great!

Sometimes we eat steak
In these economic times we have no option but to follow sales but what good is it to buy meat if you freeze it and it comes out all burned. Our FoodSaver and it's many sized bags allow us to keep our foods fresh for long periods. We have also used the smaller bags to package already cooked individual meal for those times we need something fast. Thank you for your products.

When I saw the Food Saver in the store I had to have one. Last year I got one and I was enjoying it until the 12 to 13 lbs turkey I wanted to Freeze, take to a family dinner that was out of town. I was so disappointed I couldn't use any of the bags that you had on the market at the time, I took it back to the store.! Now that you have the Expandable Heat Seal Rolls I bought the Food Saver System. This Thanksgiving I took two turkeys to the family dinner that was out of town. Thanks.!!!!

I love the versitality of the expandable bags!
I've been a Foodsaver fan since the Company begin in San Francisco.The one complaint I always had was "I wished I could save casseroles in their dish and place items that had spiny shells in them without making holes in the bags."
Now I can! I love my Foodsaver Now I wish for a larger marinade pan for brining chickens and turkeys!

These bags really EXPAND your options!
I recently replaced my beloved old Foodsaver, and with the new machine I decided to try out these expandable bags. I wasn't sure when I'd get to use them at first, but as it turned out, that very afternoon I dropped a large plastic container of homemade chicken stock on the floor. It shattered the brittle plastic in several places and made the cover completely unusable. So, I put this rather large cube-shaped, coverless container, into an expandable bag (which had plenty of room left over) , and let the new machine do its magic. It's a little trickier than using flat bags because you do need to make it very smooth at the vacuum end before you turn on the machine. But once I did that, I pressed the button, and like magic, I had a perfectly vacuum-sealed frozen cube of chicken stock! It definitely wouldn't have fit in any of the standard width bags, so these new ones really came in handy. I can't wait to buy a big roast for the freezer...I feel so empowered! :-)

Pre-formed bags makes life so much easier....
I was introduced to FoodSaver technology several years ago, and would not be without it. We buy in bulk, and repackage for storage and freezing. Was amazed that items frozen a couple of years ago will present as if fresh. The pre-formed bags make the process of storage faster, there is less waste, and a real time saver.

not worth it
I purchased this material hoping to be able to freeze whole chickens and hams. The seal would not hold and I ended up having to double bag everything. Watch closely. Some that I thought had worked perfect, only ended up breaking the seal after sitting for up to 24 hours. Great idea - needs perfection still.

This is a great product
Prior to purchasing this product we reviewed the online reviews and felt it would be a product that would fit our needs. We weren't disappointed. It has been very easy to operate and fits well on the kitchen counter. We have not encountered any issues. We would recommend this product to our friends.

Can't beat the price or product
We could not believe the price offered and with free standard shipping we saved even more money. We have used the food saver and related products for years. It has saved us a ton of money. The food stays fresher longer. We use it to keep things dry on camping trips also. We love it.

Love the food saver products
I have used the Food Saver products for over 5 years. I recommend to everyone that has not purchased a vacuum sealer. We use it for everything. We process our our pork and beef so it saves time and money on packaging.

Many times I have had larger items to go into the freezer which will not fit into the regular large bags and this SOLVES the problem. Why did you wait so long to put these out on the market? They're fantastic!

Excellent addition to the FoodSaver "arsenal."
This new roll of expandable bag material works well and allow us to protect and seal items that previously were too large or bulky to "vac." We really enjoy this new option.

The freezer. My foods, which are made up of garden veggies, fruit, fish and venison come out of the freezer very fresh.

This product fills a great need
The expandable bag feature makes it easy to seal and save those bulky items. Thank you for extending the food life cycle of those larger irregular foods.

No longer do I have to worry if I have a bag large enough for those over-sized meals. Thanks FoodSaver!!! This is one very satisfied customer ;)

You can package just about anything in this.
I was amazed how large something can be in this expandable product. It was sent with new food saver but I will definitely order more.
