Whether portioning food from bulk shopping or storing leftovers after the holidays or a successful soiree, FoodSaver heat-seal bags make it easy to store food with confidence. The 13-count box of gallon-size bags works with any FoodSaver heat-seal vacuum sealing system (not included).
Each pre-cut bag measures 11 by 14 inches, offering plenty of room for storing small items or portions for one or two people. Store anything from fresh fruits and vegetables in the fridge to cuts of meat or fish in the freezer, even cookies, crackers, and other snacks and dry goods in the pantry. A white panel on the transparent bag allows for writing the date and contents of the food being stored for easy reference later.
To use, simply add food to the bag, insert the open end in a FoodSaver heat-seal vacuum sealing system, and the machine takes care of the rest, removing all the air before using heat to create an airtight seal.
The FoodSaver bags feature a unique multi-layer BPA-free material with ThickShield protection and specially designed channels that allow for the complete removal of air. Removing all of the air from inside the bag and creating an air-tight barrier around foods locks in freshness and effectively prevents stored items from spoiling or getting freezer burned.
In addition to blocking moisture and oxygen that can compromise the freshness of food, the bags' multi-layer construction makes them safe and strong enough for freezing, microwaving, and simmering. Vacuum seal foods prepared ahead of time, then cook and serve without sacrificing freshness.
As always, the FoodSaver system keeps your food fresh up to five times longer compared to other storage methods (like zipper bags, foil, plastic wrap and containers) and helps you save up to $2700 a year by buying food in bulk, purchasing on-sale food items, and not having to worry about freezer burn or wasted food.
The FoodSaver brand provides a range of vacuum sealing systems and an array of useful accessories like containers, jar sealers, and wine-bottle stoppers as well as pre-cut freezer bags and rolls of bag material for creating custom-size bags. An effective and convenient food-storage solution. The FoodSaver brand not only helps people save time, money, and food, but it also helps keep kitchens running smoothly and efficiently--perfect for busy families or for those who love to entertain.
