    This isn't safe to eat, here is a letter from Ziploc regarding this issue:

    Dear Mrs. XXX,
    Thank you for your email regarding the safety of ZIPLOC® Bags.
    Regarding your inquiry, ZIPLOC® Bags cannot be used to boil food. Unfortunately, we do not manufacture a “boilable” bag.
    We do not recommend using any ZIPLOC® Bag in boiling water, or to “boil” in the microwave. ZIPLOC® Bags are made from polyethylene plastic with a softening point of approximately 195 degrees Fahrenheit. By pouring near boiling water (water begins to boil at 212 degrees) into the bag, or putting the bag into the water, the plastic could begin to melt.
    If you have additional concerns, we recommend you call our Product Safety Department at 1-866-231-5406. They will be happy to address any questions you may have.
    Best regards,
    Megan

    No, it's like most things, ok to do once in awhile, but not something you should do on a regular basis.

    I agree.
    There're several Mom I know in RL, not just online, that do this on a regular basis. As far as I know, they're all just fine. After reading that though, I don't think I would do that so often, but I think every so often is okay. I'm betting everyone is fine.

    If your children start to exhibit weird symptoms, then I'd start to worry...but seriously, I think they'll be fine.l :hugs:

    You can still do this with vacuum seal bags, they are meant to be boiled & are made of a slightly different plastic.

    Talking Re: zip loc scrambled eggs


    Have done this MANY times with our girl scout troops..
    there are one or two tricks to them that make it easier.
    i only do ONE baggie at a time & use a wide pot - drop in the center of the pot (if its too close to the side melting WILL occur ! )
    use a wooden spoon/spatula & after about a minute tip bag over to other side eggs will cook better
    Biggest tip tho is get as much air OUT of the bag as possible before cooking
    i dont like using tongs but if you do use the rounded edged ones to not tear the bag..
    and most of all an ADULT does the cooking

    & as for Baggies anti do this warning. OF COURSE they are going to advise against it.. only sensible thing they can or will do. its YOUR choice whether to do it or not
    just my feelings

    Ah vacuum seal bags. Good Idea.
    We have always taken this recipe a little further as a quick last morning camping breakfast. We dice up some cooked ham, dice onions, green peppers and cheese (or shredded) for the grandkids so they can choose what they want in their omelet. A two egg, takes about 20 minutes.

    hickamgirl, I have to agree with cutewikki, all of the research that I've done cooking anything this way is not good;-/ The first time that I heard about it, I thought 'what a clever idea!' Then tons of information poured in...so I never did it.
