FoodSaver Extra Bags and Rolls
Great idea, good for hard cheeses, lunch meat, etc
I was using the regular bags for keeping cheese and lunch meat in the refrigerator. They had to be cut long in order to keep re-sealing them. The "zip" lock idea is fantastic as you can use the bag over and over saving time and regular bags. Wish I had thought of this!

with food prices being at an all time high, I really like how easy these bags are to use and rise and re-use, they keep the food fresh and that saves me lots of money. these bags work great for meat also-you will never regret buying this product.

One of the Best Things EVER Invented
The FoodSaver Vacuum Zipper gallon bags are the best ever. I used to use another kind of baggie for putting things into the freezer for use later. If it wasn't used in a few days or a week, it would be full of "frost" and be "freezer burned". My girlfriend told me about the FoodSaver bags and the handy little vacuum sealer. I have owned a FoodSaver Vacuum machine for many years and I knew the company. I ordered the Hand Vacuum Sealer which came with a few quart and gallon bags. I had just purchased some roasted green chili and needed to get them into the freezer. I put the green chili into the bag and vacuumed it and it got all the air out of the bag. This system is just great for keeping cheese fresh that is being used almost daily. After the bag is opened, cheese removed, and closed again I vacuum seal it and it stays fresher longer. Everyone needs to get one of these systems.

Absolutely not for freezer use
While the description does say Refrigerated items, I would not expect the bags to be completely useless in the freezer. When used the freezer, the little airlock tabs simply fall off with no provocation whatsoever, allowing air in the bags. Kinda pointless in my case as I am apartment dweller and do not have room for a full sized machine. I currently use the Ziplock brand vacuum bags. They work great with the Foodsaver handheld and hold up well in the freezer. Foodsaver needs to come up a freezer version of these bags so that folks like me that don't have the room for a full sized appliance can enjoy the benefits of vacuum sealing for the freezer.
