I own the Reynolds® Handi-Vac® Vacuum and when it was discontinued I was extremely upset. We used the vacuum bags to store a few months of dinners and quick breakfast to go sandwiches. I read a few reviews that these bags work with the Reynold's vacuum, so I thought I would give it a try. They are an excellent replacement. The vacuum works quickly and the bags keep their seals. Whew - life can go on.

I was very excited about this product at first..... until I pumped and pumped and PUMPED the same bag and it lost pressure. About one in ten bags holds for more than one day in the freezer. We don't use them any more, as it's a good bet the seal won't last. Even double bagging didn't help.

Comments about Ziploc Vacuum Bags, Gallon, 8 ea:

If the bag is not sealed tightly the bag will not constrict. So this is a great way to make sure your fresh meats do not get freezer burn. Love these bags. There are just the two of us, so I split the packages of meat and freeze the balance. It is just as fresh when I defrost it when stored in these bags.

    Comments about Ziploc Vacuum Bags, Gallon, 8 ea:

    These are great because they do remove the air that causes freezer burn. I wrap items individually then open the packages to remove the amount I want; the bags can then be resealed.

        Comments about Ziploc Vacuum Bags, Gallon, 8 ea:

        I'm an avid user of the quart bags which are easy to find, but I was unable to find the gallon bags. I used to have a Food Saver set-up, but when it stopped working I switched to the Ziploc vacuum bags. More affordable and works just as well.

                • Convenient
                • Resilient

                • Doesn't always hold seal

                Best Uses

                • Cold cuts
                • Meat

                Comments about Ziploc Vacuum Bags, Gallon, 8 ea:

                I love the Reynold's Vacuum Sealer. I was devastated when they discontinued it along with the bags. I was quite pleased when I discovered that Ziplock was manufacturing bags that worked with it. Now Ziplock had discontinued their bags.:( I use my sealer and bags several times a week, mostly for freezer storage. Yes I've had some seal failures, but overall the unit works well. To save the bags and keep the interior's clean. I try to pre freeze the food items and then use a cutoff plastic bag as an interior liner, cutting it short enough so as to not to interfere with the closing lock. This way the interior of the bag stays clean and easily reusable. When the seal finally wears out, I can use the bag one last time with my heat sealer. I've rarely had the bag valve fail! I hope Ziplock or someone else makes these bags again.

                    Comments about Ziploc Vacuum Bags, Gallon, 8 ea:

                    The easiest vacuum storage ever. No electricity required. Keeps raw chicken and fish for up to a week without any spoilage, then cook it pop it into the freezer. Use it to keep lettuce and other leaf vegetables fresh for at least a week. Allows vegetble keeper in refrigerator to store more because they don't require as much space with the air gone. Cost of bags paid for if you save almost anything from spoiling. No hassle hand pump a joy to use.
