As another dumb East TN boy lemme answer (grew up in Knoxville & spent a night in Cleveland once - although the visit was unplanned, involuntary and in a, um, "controlled environment") - I don't know about all bags, but the Foodsaver ones work just fine and I think are designed for it. You don't want the bags resting on the bottom of the pot though, 'cause then they'll melt due to the direct heat. I don't think I've ever had a problem with them sitting on the bottom of the pot.
