These bags are wonderful. They save whatever you tuck inside, and they save you money. They work as well as name-brand FoodSaver bags but with a much smaller price. What could be better?
I have used these bags to store food, such as meats and cheese loaves, and everything I put in them stays as fresh as it was on the day they were vacuummed and sealed.I love to use them to store leftovers that I separate into individual portions which I use for lunches at work for me and lunches for the kids to take to school. I use them to save dishes that I make double of when I am cooking because making an extra casserole when I'm already cooking and then safely keeping it frozen until I want to heat and serve it saves a lot of time and money as well. The key on saving extra casseroles or leftovers is to freeze the dish before putting it in the bag so that the food doesn't get squished when it's vaccumed. Then the frozen meal can be saved for months without a speck of freezer burn. The food can then be microwaved or boiled inside the unopened bag to wake it up, or the bag can be cut and removed so that the meal can be baked in the oven.
I have also safely stored documents and pictures, as well as items that I want to keep forever, like things my kids make for me or art that they create. I'm sure that there are other ways to use these bags, and I'm sure they will be perfect for you. I highly recommend these bags and wish you happy vacuuming. ;-)
