Which FoodSaver Bags/Rolls Are The Most Handy ?
 
Costco is putting the V3880 on sale soon and I'm planning on buying one. FoodSaver is having a buy one get one sale this weekend and I want to but some stuff.

What do you guys find the most useful of the bags and rolls they offer ?


Thanks,

Steve

I only use rolls since I can make any length bag out of them. I have the 11" and the 8" rolls and use both.

I use the 11" rolls and the 11" portion/pouch rolls as I freeze up a lot of small portions for the wife.

Me too! But my wife found some 1 gallon bag by Ziplock (yea the zip bag company but these are sealer bags) that are awsome. She can't remember where sh got them.

I buy big rolls off ebay, never had a problem with them and their alot cheaper than the food saver brand

I buy the rolls the bags are a rip off. I can make wheat ever size I need. I find the 8" to be the most versatile, But I do keep a 11" roll when the 8 just wont do.

In the bags, I use the quarts (8") more than the gallons (11",) but use both. It depends on how many people you feed and what you're freezing. As others have said, the rolls are more economical. You can also wash and re-use those bags depending on what you had in them.

Another vote for the rolls here as well. I use the 8" mostly but you should have an 11" roll around as well.

Thank you, guys !

I ordered a bunch of rolls direct from Foodsaver. They would only match 1 for 1 for the buy one get one free deal so I placed two orders... :grin:

I actually bought the v3880 and used it already. I bought a 2# bag of scallops and seperated, bagged, vacuumed and sealed them. I bought 5# of frozen, tail on, uncooked shrimp but those didn't do so well. The tails kept poking a hole in the bag. I backed up and put the shrimp in a Ziploc frzr bag and tried it again in a FS bag and that worked. Last but not least I had several boxes of 5.56 laying around so I sealed those baby's up too. JIC. :biggrin1:

i use only the rolls. 11". As a matter of fact i just vacuumed a butt bone today .

Rolls are the best, bags are a waste. We used to recycle the bags but have since given that up as we were getting pinholes in them and they would slowly leak. Now we just make the right size of bag for whatever we are freezing.

Sweet.

How do you like the V3880?


My Sam's has a different model. I'm unsure which vacuum sealer I should get.

I like the 8'' and 11''. But the 11'' portion pouch rolls are useful too.

westy 04-07-2013 03:51 AM

Anybody use the Gamesaver rolls? Whats the difference between those and the regular rolls?

DubfromGA 04-07-2013 04:27 AM

I see the BOGO, but not free shipping?
