Question

is the Ziploc vacuum bag compatible with the Reynold's handi-vac?

answer 1
Yes and no.
There's a seller on eBay who sells an adapter that lets you use the HandiVac machne to seal these ZipLoc bags. This seller says that the HandiVac machine isn't compatible with the ZipLoc bags, and that it may damage the bags.

I haven't been able to confirm this. I now have a HandiVac machine and in very limited tests I was able to position the HandiVac over the vacuum port on the ZipLoc bag, push it down (with the bag on a flat surface), and draw a vacuum. I haven't done this with many bags, and it's clear that the small port on the HandiVac must completely cover the vacuum opening on the ZipLoc, but it looks as if the two systems are compatible.

OTOH -- when using the ZipLoc pump that is part of the Walmart kit, and also available elsewhere -- it's quite easy to get a good vacuum without having to use the large, noisy HandiVac pump.

It doesn't work very well with the Reynolds Handi-vac. These bags are much better than the Reynolds bags.

I have the Foodsaver Vaccuum Sealer and it is compatible. I would suggest that since the Ziplock bags are not expensive that you try the quart size (12 bags). Even though many reviews said that they were compatible with the Foodsaver I was doubtful until I tried and was pleasantly surprised so I say go for it.

If you slightly off center the reynolds vac, it works on the ziploc bags.

The bags are almost the same the sealer is a hand pump for the Ziploc bags and the pump from one type of bag does not work with the other type of bag.

Yes it will suck out the air in the bag. I only had an issue with these bags allowing air back in with the food. I just placed tape over the hole to stop the air seepage.

I wouldn't recommend reusing these bags for food products of any kind.
There is always a chance of cross contamination or bacteria transfer, no matter how you clean them.
It less expensive to use a fresh bag ($0.22 to $0.35 each), than a trip to the hospital.

Although I haven't tried this, I suspect that it can. The main things to be concerned with are a) making sure that the bag is REALLY clean; b) making sure that the vacuum port is not clogged or damaged; c) making sure that the zip strip is clean and can be sealed shut.

If you used it for dry foods, yes. If you used it for meats or greasy foods, no. If you get the bag hot enough to thoroughly clean it, it breaks the seal.

Yes.. I have reused mine several times with no problems. sometimes putting the cheese right back in the same bag and not washing it (the cheese is wraped in saran wrap). And other times washing and using for other stuff.

Yes-after reading reviews of others I tried rinsing or using soapy water and then rinsing and then folding down the tops and standing in the dish rack to dry. They work well for reuse several times.

If you are talking about one of the other size zip vac freezer bags, then yes. If you are refering to something a little larger, like maybe one of the space bags, then the answer would be no,

These have a vacuum port flush with the bag. If you are talking about the ones that have the 1/4 inch round fitting on the side edge of the bag, I do use the battery vacuum and a mustard or dressing pop open cap as an adapter. It's quick but doesn't have quite the seal and therefore vacuum of the hand pump.

These Ziploc Vacuum Freezer Bags, quart & gallon size, are the only ones that I know of that the use the Ziploc Vacuum Pumps. UPS Code 25700 70055.

Reynold had a vacuum bag, with a vacuum port, that only worked with the Reynolds vacuum pump. I don't see the bags or pumps on the store shelves any longer.

I tried both types Ziploc & Reynolds, and didn't care much for the Reynolds pump or bag.
The Vacuum pumps, for each product, only works with the manufacturers vacuum bags and not the other. I tried both of them on each others bags. Just doesn't work.

The Reynolds pumps are battery operated and noisey. Hard to clean.
The Ziploc pump is a manual pump that only takes a few pump strokes to do the job very well. Easy to keep clean.
One piece at the top of the pump takes a quick turn to dismantle the whole pump. One moving part, the plunger with a handle built in. Easy to keep germ and bacteria free and sanatary.

It talks about no BPA, Freezer and Microwaving. I didn't see anything about boiling. Once the vacuum is off the bag I don't think the little valve would be perfect for keeping water out. I'm quite sure if it tried to pressurize it would release the pressure. Let the boiling water in? Possibly. The only ones I would trust more is the vacuum and heat seal type.
