FoodSaver® 11" Expandable Heat Seal Roll
Another Great Idea
The FoodSaver expandable bags are the "Cats Meow". I wish they would of thought about these years ago. These bags are great for large cuts of meat but also other things. I use them for breads and rolls which stay fresher longer. I can use some of my bigger bowels for marinating and storage now. These bags are great. I hope that you decide to make them in a "six pack" also.

Ideal for the bigger things
I'd been waiting for something like this, because let's face it: standard FoodSaver bags are too small for larger leftover portions.
These bags can fit much of a leftover ham, and expand to quite a tall size. I've not used them in the freezer, but they work for keeping the leftover carcass of a turkey in the fridge for a couple weeks so as to make a turkey base/broth.

Love these bags....
I love the expandable bags. No more trying to stuff the product into the regular bag and trying to line the edges up ( granted if I cut the regular bag a lot longer it would probably line up better).So far the expandable freezes just as good as the regular. Worth the purchase. Plan on buying more.

Finally a way to keep hams and turkey breast that I buy on sale longer. After the holidays there are great buys that I've been reluctant to take advantage of because of storing the hams and turkeys longer than a few months. Food Saver saves the day and bucks for me. Love the expandable bags.

follow the directions and it works well.i tried to skimp on the length and had to make a new bag it says 5 extra inches they meant it with the extra length it allows seams to fold properly and seal.i froze 2 geese and was very excited with the results.im glad they came out with this product.

Couldn't freeze without it!
This is the 2nd time that I have purchased the divided bags with the perforations down the middle. Love them! I have just frozen stuffed peppers, they fit in perfectly for single servings! The expandable bags for large cuts of meat are fabulous! Prime Rib sale here I come!

My favorite kitchen appliance!
I use my Foodsaver everyday! I have had one for over 10 yrs . I have upgraded twice to a newer model. It is the one kitchen appliance I could not do without. I use the bags,and canisters. The canisters are great for storing coffee. I highly recommend this product.

Would not buy again!
I have tried several times to use this roll but I unable to get a tight seal. At first I thought it was my machine, but all my other bags and rolls work fine. I would not waste my money on this item, in fact I would like to return it and receive money back!!!!

These are a must have!
I had two large porchetta's which were each over 10 inches in diameter. These expandable bags really were a lifesaver and at a cost that can't be beat! I had no problem at all vacuum packing them so they'll be preserved and ready for Super Bowl Sunday!

Great for large items
This product is great for those really large cuts that can be problematic with the regular bags. These new expandable bags are super for those cuts.
I got a good deal at Costco on pork roasts and was able to fit them easily in these new bags.

Happy to have expandable product
With this expandable roll, I am able to make pie crusts in advance, put the whole pie plate in the bag and seal it down to freeze. Saves a lot of time at holidays. And whenever we have a sudden urge for a pie, the crusts are ready to use.

I got married a couple months ago and the only thing I could find big enough for the top of the cake was a large zip lock bag. But then I received a Food Saver as a gift and then ordered a roll of the expandable. The top of our cake fit!!

We bought these to go along with the FoodSaver we bought as a gift for Christmas. Perfect timing! We brought home some ham and put it in the freezer for a New Years snack! No freezer burn and looks professionally sealed. Great product!

Great new product!
We've been wishing for bags like this that can expand to hold large diameters like a whole chicken or roast and they're finally here! Fantastic for bulky foods & non foods also! Love this with a roll so we can cut it to suit the job.

product is an excellent invention
At first 11" flat rolls were sent in error when we jad ordered 11" expandable rolls. I called and explained the error and additional expandable rolls were sent immediately and we were also allowed to keep the flat rolls also.

The food saver is the best purchase I've made recently. We keep is on the counter so it is easily available. These bags work perfectly. They are snug and keep meats fresh for a long time. No more freezer burn for us.

I finally used my newest Foodsaver and these bags.I have had about 5 different models over the years. They are the one appliance I keep on the counter and use all the time. Both are excellant. Thanks Foodsaver.

new expandable bag
Have to leave the 5" top or more for sealing. Little tricky to get 'no wrinckles' in top seal but is possible. Had to seal one bag three times. Will use again to master the sealing with the expandable bags.

The Bag Products Are Great overall
The one big negative I have is the directions. I own the 3400 upright unit...Love It the issue is unlike the flat units you cannot control the seal when you make up the bag. It uses 1 1/2 " to seal the bottom and another 1 1/2" to seal the top. The expandable says leave 5" doesn't work minimum of 6" I did flower and need 7 1/2". The regular bags you need 5". The system is not efficient on waste but I still save money and it is great, even got rid of my Nuclear Microwave that kills food.

8in Rolls Six-Pack -20 F
Purchased named item above, the first roll I took out sealed but would not vacuum the bag, tried a few times did the same thing. I'm very disappointed, I really liked your products until than.

Great Bags, but a Quirk
Generally, love the bags, but I found that they only work in one direction. If you cut the bag to fit the shape and size of the item you are sealing and you turn the bag "sideways" to vacuum, they don't vacuum! Not good! Good luck trying to get certain foods to go in the short end (or the long end depending on the item) when it will only functionally work one way.
Otherwise, they are sturdy, seal well, and will accommodate most situations within the confines of the one-way limitation.

My Foodsaver Model V 3430 is very nice.
I like the concept of vacuum sealing products to increase their freshness and to preserve them.
I am having trouble sliding the bag in for sealing with my Model V 3430. There are times when the bag is in the wrong location and will not evacuate. When inserting the bag it may clamp down but not pump the vacuum. Releasing it and reinserting it to a different location then
the pump may work. How far to insert the bag to assure that it will work the first time is what I am striving for.

The expandable bags worked well on a dish that I left on a serving dish. Good idea as the non-expandable bags would have required breaking the dish down. Very happy.

Works, However care must be taken
The expandable bags work well for large items. The length of the bag must be long enough to allow for the pleats to be folded back in before vacuuming and sealing.

Great all around Deal
Love your all your products, price and service. My only issue is that all your containers need to be stackable with like containers, unstackable is unmanageable!
December 21, 2012
I'm still a "newbie", but believe I'm going to like the rolls because one can make what ever size of bag that is needed. No waste in having a bag too big.
January 9, 2013
I like using all Foodsaver products. I just used some of these but it works great. I will be buying more of these.
All of your products work great.

This is a great product
This product preformed very well and the overall price was great. I put all my jerky in these bags and believe it will last for years now.

Loose the Tin Foil, this bag holds it all!
Never sure how to keep that left-over turkey from getting dried out? These expandable bags lock out the air and keep the moisture in.

I found these bags to be extremely useful, particularly with odd sizes of meats and fowls. They store well and look fine.
