    recommend it (the brand) and waht do you use it for..food and what
    else?

    I picked one up at a garage sale for $1, YES, $1. I just haven't figured out
    how to use it yet. I've searched and searched but I can find out if it needs
    special bags or anything about how it works. I'll look forward to replies to
    your thread to see if I can get any good info.

    Has anyone tried the new handheld vacuum sealer that Reynolds makes? I've seen

    it at King Soopers recently. The vac sells for $10, & they sell a couple of

    different sized bags. I'm curious. We live with my mil, & share her tiny

    galley kitchen. There is no room for me to keep a Food Saver, & $10 fits my

    budget much better than the cost of the larger machine!

    I bought one last night and used it today. so far it

    seems to be working. The bags were kind of expensive,

    but someone said they could be washed. it seemed to

    suck all the air out of the bags of hamburger.

    Hi Dee,

    Yes, they work wonderful.My mom has one and used it just the other

    nite and I asked her about it and she swears by hers.She seals up

    spaghetti noodles pkgs,cereal bags,etc...

    I told her that I was going to get me one this Thursday cause they are

    more convenient for when you need a quick seal..

    HTH,

    Stacey

    Since I got my vacuum sealer the price of the bags

    have really gone up. I started gettin regular gallon

    freezer bags from dollar stores and then use them. I

    also use sandwhich bags and put chips in them and seal

    them shut, don't suck air out of the chips tho. But it

    is easy for kids to just grab small bag and go.

    Laters,

    Kelly

    <DIV dir="ltr" align="left"><SPAN class="771463213-24102007">I would put meat in ziplock bags, then seal it inside the other bag. That way you can safely re-use the bag. Re-using a bag that has just been wash out with meat in it is not a good idea.

    I don't have the Reynolds one so I can't speak for it, but I do have the

    foodsaver big one and the handheld. I've had them about a month now and

    absolutely love them.



    My big one has a feature where it will flip up when not in use to make

    more cabinet space. I have several of the foodsaver canisters that I

    store leftovers in and the hand held is so quick and easy to reseal

    those with.



    On anything moist like hamburger meat, soups etc. You really should

    freeze them at least semi solid before you vacuum seal them or you risk

    sucking the liquid up in the motor and running your sealer.



    We put hamburger patties on a cookie sheet and flash freeze them for two

    hours before bagging them. This creates an additional plus of the

    patties not being stuck together when bagged.



    Soups, making a sausage lentil one today, I freeze in a plastic ziploc

    bowl until solid and hen do the old jello mold trick of running water on

    the outside of the container to pop out the frozen chunk and then seal.



    If the food is just slightly moist, ie a roast you can put a paper towel

    between the meat and the seal and that will absorb the liquid.



    If you are doing anything like flour put a coffee filter or piece of

    paper towel over the top to keep the powder from being sucked into your

    motor and ruining it.



    Yes you can wash the bags. Food saver even suggests it in their owners

    manuals. They say to turn them inside out and put them on the top shelf

    of the dishwasher. However, they do advise against doing this with

    anything that has had meat in it. Or if you have either boiled the bag

    or microwaved in it.



    I don't know about the Reynolds one but the big foodsaver will also seal

    mylar bags like potato chip bags, of course you want to do just the seal

    feature or you will crush your chips



    That's why I like the canisters you can put chips and other crushables

    in them and they get vacuum sealed with no crushing. Jan who knows the

    foodsaver is expensive but in the long run she'll come out way ahead on

    food that isn't ruined from freezer burn in OK
