Default FoodSaver Bags

I remember a while back we had some issues with Seal 4 Less on Amazon concerning Food Saver Bulk Bags. Problems Resolved? Can't remember who brought it up

I was the one who posted my problems with Seal4Less.com.

After numerous unanswered phone calls and e-mails I got PayPal involved and Seal4Less didn't reszpond to them, either. PayPal ended up refunding my money.
It was a shame because I had ordered from this guy once before & was pleased with the product, price and service. Too bad he went down hill, but I won't be ordering anything from him again.

I bought some on Ebay from a sller that specialized in bags (I bought 100 pints for pre pattied burgers) from seller "ADBCRF". Ebay items shipped immediately. They put a business card in the box. Re-ordered quarts direct. Took 5 emails and 3 weeks to get them. Moral to the story......No Ebay, No Protection. Lesson learned!

I just received bags from ADBCRF today. Very fast shipping. Have you seen his feedback? It's amazing. The bags look good, will see how they work.

I agree. I just didn't get the same service when I bought dirct. ZThe bags are GREAT. They're cheap. And they work well.

If I remember correctly, the last time I bought bags I bought some NON FoodSaver bags at Kmart (at least I think it was Kmart) that were a good bit cheaper. Actually I bought the rolls and the have worked well with no problems whatsoever. They were Rival brand.

Found this site...lookin like some good prices but the shipping is steep. They say that if you order multi items they can combo ship at reduced rates but you have to email them about it.

ABDCRF's description says the bags are compatible with clamp-style sealers. My foodsaver heat seals. Will these bags work?

Good question and great catch! I'd like to know for sure myself as I'm planning on buying a Food Saver tomorrow.

Their website says that the VacStrip storage bags work for all "channel style" foodsaver type machines.

Here's another link (look down towards bottom of page)

i'm using with a Food Saver. They seem to work better than the dimpled bags that came with it. They are compatible with all Fodd Savers.

Bags work well. They're a little thinner than the standard FS bags, but I'm happy.
