FoodSaver® 16 Freeze 'N Steam™ Microwave Cooking Bags
What a great product
I just got these and and I will be reordering me more. I work late hours and love convenience but also love freshness. I am a gardener so now I can put up my vegges in a very easy to use way.

Perfect for microwaving fresh vegetables.
I use these to prepare fresh vegetable combinations for my husband. I make them up for a week at a time. Because there is no oxygen getting to them, the enzymes in the vegetables do not interact & try to "kill" each other by using each other as "compost". The 7th pack, 7 days later, is as fresh as the first one. Since I make combinations by weight of each vegetable, making up 7 at a time is definitely more convenient. I have been using these for over a year. Thank you.

Fantastic for Microwave!
These bags work just as well as the commercial pre-packaged microwave fresh vegetables you can buy at the grocery.
- The bag is composed of a quality, substantial material.
- Brussels sprouts were perfectly cooked in 4 minutes.
- There is a small air hole built in to release steam when microwaving.
- The base of the bag will stand, but it could be a little wider to accommodate bulkier items (e.g.: a stuffed pepper).
It would be even better with a zipper!

Great for all veggies
I have used these bags on both fresh and frozen veggies and they have come out better than cooking on the stove top. What is cool about them is you can buy large bags of frozen veggies and then devide them into meal size potions so you only need to grab one bag if you are in a hurry.

Great for garden vegetables
I love the microwave freeze & steam bags. They make preserving the garden harvest quick and easy and heating a snap. I like that even after several months in the freezer, the edges of the bags do not crack and break open as I have been experiencing with name brand zip top bags.

I like these!
I started using these bags a few months ago, and I really like them. I've tried to get away from buying the frozen microwave vegetables and other heat and eat type goods from the store, and these bags make it a lot easier. I like being able to freeze vegetable from my garden with my own sauce or seasonings rather than be limited by what's available at the grocery store. It's also a lot cheaper than plunking down $3.00 or more for a handful of vegetables coated in some type of sauce. In addition to vegetables, I like to fill them with home made soup, pasta, or casseroles to freeze for meals during the week. The bags hold quite a bit of food which is good in most cases, but a pint size bag would be the ideal size to have for those of us who like to take our lunch to work. It would be great to grab a small bag of frozen vegetables or spaghetti out of the freezer to take to work. Sure I can still use the regular Foodsaver pint size bag, but those don't stand up for easy filling like these!

Best product ever!
Excellent product, do most of my microwave cooking including fish with these bags no mess and they are great in the microwave and in the freezer. Hightly recommend them to anyone who wants to keep cooking mess down to the bare minimum.

First time user
This was the first time I had used this product. I got a great buy on fresh asparagus so I blanched them & put them in the steam bags. Microwaved them for 2 minutes from the freezer & they were perfect.

I use these bags at least 3 times a week and I hope they are always available. Even fresh corn-on-the-cob turns out just great. For low fat/low cal healthy food I spray a little no calorie butter spray in the bag with veggies and sprinkle a vegetable seasoning over all and microwave--delicous! I would love to see these bags in a larger size.

When you have a pint size, please let me know. I cook for an elderly gentleman who can reheat food packs and follow directions, just can't cook for himself. A pint size bag would be a great help.

I love these steamer bags!!
Makes steaming veggies in the micro very easy. You don't loose any of the goodness of the veggies when steamed in the bags. Plus it's very fast.
I use them each time I want to steam my veggies.
I do have two wishes..
1. That our local Wal-Mart Super Center would carry these
2. That they weren't quite as expensive.

Seal and steam Great Product
Love the cooking bags. I use them for fresh corn cut off the cob ,add some butter seal and they are ready to use direct from the freezer to the microwave. can also use for liquids by filling, freezing upright and then sealing. not as difficult to use this way
and a lot neater.

I like this product. I use it a lot for microwaving sweet potatoes. They come out soft and delicious. Also, when you steam fresh veggies it is great for freezing leftovers.

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.

This product works great!
I do a lot of crock pot cooking and find these to be great for freezing single portions for future use. Much better that containers that can result in freezer burn. I just wish they came in Pint size for smaller portions, but that is neither here or there. I won't stop buying them
because they are the Cat's Meow.

This product makes dinner quick and easy!
Since I buy in bulk; this makes packaging and preparing food quick and easy.

Used this for frozen beans. Fresh and hot. Would purchase this again.

These bags are great, especially when cooking for 2-3 people. I buy frozen vegetables in bulk, come home and seal them in these bags, and throw them in the freezer.
When I'm ready to cook a veggie for a meal, I grab a bag and it is already the correct portion and cooks quickly.

Convenient and great results
These bags are so easy to fill and combine a main entree, with vegetables, and seasonings. A complete meal prepared in advance, ready to travel, and ready to steam cook in the microwave.

Best bags ever
My husband and I buy big bags of frozen vegetables from costcos and put enough for the two of us in those bags. They only take a couple of minutes in the microwave and they are ready to eat. We love them
September 22, 2014
Love this product!
This is the greatest product. Freeze and then steam in the microwave, doesn't get much better than that! I buy by bulk at Costco and then package the freeeze/steam bags and they are wonderful.

A Very Clever Design. Great Time Saver.
Pre-Made meals in a bag. From freezer to microwave = no fuss, no mess, no clean up. Just heat and eat.

Great for vegies.
Easy to use and to store vegies for quick microwave cooking.

Microwave plus Foodsaver, great match
Like being able to make my own microwave steam bags. Been buying the pre-made for years and love the convenience. Put a 4 for ease of use because I can't figure out the cheddar cheese to broccoli ratio. So far haven't managed it. Cheese turns into a brick. But the broccoli comes out great, just have to add butter afterwards.

Does not hold a quart of food
I bought this item to freeze vegetables. The "FoodSaver® Quart-Size Freeze 'N Steam™ Microwave Cooking Bags" would not hold my asparagus, even after I snapped off 1/3 of the stem. These Microwave cooking bags need to be larger,
