FoodSaver® Pint-Size Heat-Seal Bags
Handy Pint size helpers
I have re-ordered these pint size bags on numerous occasions. They are, without a doubt, the best size for leftovers or portioning out a small amount of anything you can think of. I just purchased two whole Pork Loins and cut them down to manageable size portions. Some cut in cubes and most are cut in about 2 to 2-1/2 inch mini roasts that, when defrosted, are cut into 2 thick, boneless pork chops. Although I use all sizes of Food Saver bags, these pint size are the absolute handiest for a single man to use. I am eternally thankful for such a great product. A part of every order always includes Grandpa's little helpers.

These are great for portioning fruit for freezing. Very convenient to have ready-made bags all the same size.
However, the white area for the label is at the bottom of the bag. Can't write on it after the product is in the bag because it is all lumpy. Can't read it if you write on it first because, again, once the product is in the bag it is all lumpy. Froze several bags of blueberries yesterday, and can't read any of them. There is a large flat area at the top of the bag that could be written on before or after sealing (since so much of the bag is required at the top for the sealing process). It would make a LOT more sense to print the white label area up there.

I bought 2 boxes of the pint sized bags and almost half would not fully let the air be sucked out of them. I ended up throwing several away and will NOT ever by food saver bags again. I have also have that happen with some of the qt bags as well just not as many. I bought competitor bags and had no problems at all! I thought maybe it was the food saver machine but when the competitor bags worked fine I knew it was the food saver bags being the problem. They really need to fix the problem!!!! I highly doubt if this will be published with the problems I had!

failure rate high
I agree with a prior reviewer, failure rate is, I think, high, for this product. Every fourth or fifth bag doesn't seal. The size is terrific for freezing smaller amounts. I find if I trim the bag with sharp scissors it sometimes, not every time, does the trick and bag will seal properly.

Perfect portion for the grandkids!
The pint size provides the perfect portion for my grandchildren. I cook in bulk so I can load up their dad's freezer with dinners we can use on busy nights or when I don't feel like cooking. The pint size is also perfect for left-overs...they eliminate the obligation to reheat them again the next night...and they eliminate the need to throw them out when they're discovered a week later in the back of the fridge.

A great size
The pint bags are a great size. Quicker to seal --- less space to store. And, of course, economical.

Perfect size for small uses
My least favorite thing to do is try to guess what size bag to create for small amounts measured for use at a later date. The pint bags are just right, when freezing a portion of fruit or vegetables for use in recipes. .

We were a family of three, (kid left home for college), so now we are two. I use to use the quart size bags to freeze our garden and bulk meats, now I mainly use the pint size for just the right portion size. I have been using FoodSaver for over a year now and have tried all the different bags and sizes I have never had an issue with any of them, they all work great. Wouldn't know what to do without them!
