Anyone use the food saver to vaccuum seal cookies?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I bought a cheaper version of the food saver and it did not suck the air out of the bags - it only works with their brand bags. I'm wondering if the food saver will work with the treat bags? I have found that the cookies ship a lot better if they are vaccuum packed - prevents them from cracking and breaking during shipment.

Has anyone had any luck with that?

Thanks!

Hi
I have a seal saver and use it for cookies. It does work wonders when shipping them. But I also use it to reseal my brown sugar and etc in its own bag and it works fine.
Hope that helped.

Thanks doodledo,
So you are able to use it with the regular treat bags that you can buy at Michaels?
Thanks!

Not sure about that. I have sealed up brown sugar, their brand of bags, chips, and other stuff that I cant remember. I would say it depends on how thin or thick it is. To thin it might just melt into a glob.

You can seal almost any type of plastic or foil bag.
The Foodsaver will only vacuum their type bags. You can buy a cheaper priced channel bag on eBay. I use mine almost everyday; and yes, I vacuum seal cookies for shipping.

DDiva - what do you use for the cookies when you vacuum pack them? Do you just use regular party treat bags? When I tried those, it sealed it, but didn't vacuum seal it.

No, the Food Saver will only seal channel type bags.
When I ship decorative cookies, I put them in the cello bag and seal them. I then put several (depends on the size of the cookies) in a vacuum bag and gently vacuum seal it. Bubble wrap on the bottom of the box, around the sides and on top. They have always arrived intact...and fresh.

I was thinking of buying one to seal gumpaste and fondant. I think it would work great for that. Anyone use it for that also?

Yep- it works great for that as well I sell fresh made gumpaste that I ship all over and I vacuum seal it. Stays nice and fresh for the longest!!

Would anyone share what model or make of vacuum or heat sealer has worked for them? I will be shipping decorated cookies and want to buy something that I know works. (I would like to put my cookies in and seal cello bags first, then vacuum seal several of the cello bags.)
