Can this hand held food saver be used to seal foods that will be going into the freezer?

Yes, you can seal the bags and remove the air from the bags and then put it in the freezer. My grand daughter is going to use this unit to freeze pork loin when it goes on sale. I have the full unit also so I never thought about it. I have frozen my lunch meats before they went bad and they were good.

Yes! I use the original Food Saver bags "Vacuum Zipper Bags" (available at wal-mart) and have no problem using in the freezer, matter of fact sometimes I re-use
the bags depending on what I had in them, a good washing, or I have
even put them in the dishwasher with no problem. But Yes you can use
this food saver for freezer foods because once it is vacuum sealed, it is
vacuum sealed! (doesn't matter how big of "machine" you used to seal whether a big machine or a hand held) I love this hand held its great for freezing single serve meals or larger items and so much more convenient than those big huge machines, this one just sits on counter. I love mine!

With my other hand-held one, I did. I guess it depends on the thickness or ply of the bags. But I'm going to use this one for freezer storage.

NO! These are designed to be used in the refrigerator for things you'd want to use daily, or at least often during a week, such as cold cuts, cheese, baby carrots, celery sticks, cut up fruit, etc. The bags that go in the freezer require the vacuum sealing machine. The bags for this hand held are the zip lock ones with the gasket.

No, the bags have a special valve for removing the air. This is a great product and I would really recommend it...can purchase the bags online from Walmart. Not sure if they sell them in the stores as I purchased a supply with the Kit.

I had my hand held sealer for over a year and now have to get a new one as it doesn't hold a charge and Foodsaver no longer repairs them. Answering your question I found that the Ziploc freezer bags with the circle work better than the Foodsaver bags. Also I have frozen foods in the foodsaver bags and it works fine. I buy the Ziploc bags online through Walmart since I can't find it their stores. I truly believe that the Ziploc bags hold up better. Also both types of bags are reusable. All you need do is rinse with a little dish soap and water.

According to my friends at yahoo's foodsaver group, it will work with the zip lock bags, too, although I haven't tried it myself because I only have the zip lock pump so far. The group is VERY experienced, though, and I trust their judgment.

Yes, as long as they have the "circle" for the adapter to suck the air out. It will say so on the box. Be sure you run your finger along the seam at the top of the bag as you are sucking the air out. Then you are sure it is sealed properly.

The bags needed for this are the ones with the gasket, and they are NOT recommended to be used in the freezer. The bags with the gasket ARE reusable. That's why they are designed to use in the refrigerator for cold cuts, cheese, and other things you'd want to get out of the bags daily, or at least, quite often.

"makes the bags strong enough to simmer and microwave." Copied that statement from the walmart website. If not available at your store, online you are able to order with free delivery to your local walmart. Keep in mind it is a "Freshsaver"
I read on another website that bags are reusable unless you have meat or eggs....in them. Before I bought one I read so many reviews I don't remember where I read that.

I have several of the round canisters with the grey push button release. You can use this sealer with the jar sealers. I use the small one. Place the jar sealer on top of canister, then place the handheld vacuum sealer on top of the jar sealer & vacuum. Works for me.

No, this is strictly for sealing items that will go into a special zip lock bag. The mason jar attachment requires something that uses the hose but there might be some type of adapter that can be used that I do not know of. I am pretty familiar with Foodsaver products.

The sealer comes with a plug in adaptor which the sealer needs to charge for 24 hours before using. My sealer lasted about 4 months before I had to recharge. I would not recommend having the sealer in the stand and plugged in to the wall all the time.

Charge 24 hours before using first time. It seems to last good. I did two bags and also the bowl several times and it was fine. It stays in the charger all the time so stays charged. I thing it is going to be great. like onions for instance. use a piece and bag the rest and stays fresh for a long time. my friend has one and puts all kinds of stuff in it.
veggies, lunchmeats cheese cookies. you name it. I put left over pizza and it was great when opened.

depends if your freezing or just refrigerating. The bags are excellent to prevent freezer burn and keep dried foods fresh just as a sealed store package would,very good for cheese.
