Q & A: Vacuum Sealer Bags

Here's a question I received from a reader today after she read this post on freezing cream cheese.

Question: Are you using "name brand" vacuum bags? Or? I purchased some off ebay and was quite disappointed in them. Some kept seal, some didn't. And it didn't seem to matter if it was dry goods or something like salmon.

Answer: I pretty much stick to the Food Saver Brand or the brand in the Amazon link below.  I have had good success with both.  When I have to buy again I will go with the ones in the Amazon link.  They are a bit cheaper and I thought they worked just as well.

I hope this helps!

  1. Hi Patsi,
    An alternative I like is 100 - 8" x 12" vacuum seal bags that are 3.5 mil thick Price total: $21.95 to my door.

  2. Thanks! I see they do have basically one other brand on Amazon....um I'm not seeing your link over here...)

    I'm not sure what I'll do with the batch I have, they really aren't reliable.

    1. The link is at the bottom of this post. Also there is an Amazon link at the bottom of the page. Thanks!

  3. I don't use FoodSaver vacuum sealer brand. So can I use this type of bags?

  4. Thanks Patsy, I'm using 100 - 8" x 12" vacuum seal bags, I usually buy them in the market, but now I can buy it at Amazon through your article
