  5. Well, I've been using the rolls, and the quart size zipper bags for a few days now, and I have to say, the rolls definately seem to get a tighter seal than Foodsaver brand rolls, they do appear to get more of the air out, so far I am pleased with the rolls.

    Out of the 9 zipper bags I've used, one just wouldn't seal, and I couldn't find where the seam was broken, not sure what was up with that one, but hopefully that was an anomaly, otherwise I'm looking at a 12% failure rate in the resealables, time will tell I guess.

    Bluto, reseal the edges in  your machine.... maybe that will save the bag....   Dave
     
  7. Thanks Dave, I did set the bag off to the side with that intent while finishing up, but by the time I went back to try resealing the edges my boys had grabbed it and had it full of army men.  I guess I could have sealed the little guys in, but I just let them have it.  :)

    Howdy, Pops!

    I use the FoodSaver V2244 and find it good value. It is a good home-use machine. I bought mine earlier this year when Amazon ran a special on them - don't recall what I paid but it was much less than the stores around here had them for - including Wal*Mart and Target.

    Be sure to get your bags from Lisa, of course!

    What is the difference between the Premium and Economy Rolls?

    The 11.5 x 50ft roll seems like a good deal but curious to know what the difference is between the Premium rolls.

    Thanks!

    That is an excellent question. I don't know the answer but I have just assumed that the premium products are made from heavier poly.

    Maybe Lisa will pop in and tell us. I wish she would post something on the subject on her web site.

    Happy New Year Everybody!

    I just saw the question regarding the Premium vs. the Economy bags.  Thanks to fpnmf   for posting the link that explains the mystery.

    There is no difference in MIL in the bags.  The Premium bags have a strip of mesh running up the center of one side of the bag (the patented VacStrip), that vacuums more efficiently than a regular full textured bag, like FoodSaver or our Economy Full Mesh bags.  They also draw less liquid out of the bag, because the liquid has to be pulled to the center before it can exit the bag, and liquid weighs more than air, so by the time the liquid is drawn to the center strip, most of the air is already out of the bag. The Premium bags cost about $.01 - $.02 more per bag.

    I hope all of my friends on this forum have a healthy and happy 2013.
