Handi-Vac Discontinued

Minor but annoying.

I decided to pull out my Handi-Vac for the first time in a while. I needed bags and none were to be found at the store. So I go online to Reynold's and see that they have been discontinued.

i have one too, i love it . a bummer soon won't be able to use. amazon is selling bags in boxes of 24 for 30.00 i think, plus shipping. i am thinking would just be cheaper to throw away. they said didn't sell enough.

I get annoyed with people that ask for advice, then when they get what they ask for, are rude and disrespectful in return.
If they know so much about what they need to do, then don't ask for advice.

Sometimes there is a language issue that makes people sound harsher than intended. I know the thread you are referring to. Without meaning to be rude though, I did think you were a little blunt too. So maybe it is bit of irking each other? Or maybe neither of you intended to be that way and it just comes over to the reader in those instances, fueling each other on. It does happen.

I just found that there was a negative remark about every helpful suggestion made. and yes, it is irksome. I was offended by the "duh!" comment. What I suggested was quite reasonable and quite frankly, common sense. I didn't need to be treated as though I was stupid for suggesting something that diet experts everywhere recommend. If you don't want it eaten, don't put it in the cupboard.

how would you seal it. perfectly willing to try, no frost bite on any of my meat using the ones that came with it.

i was told once that you can use a straw to suck out all the air. lol. somehow that does not appeal. just silly

not the regular old ziplock bags. ziplock came out with their version of the reynolds handi-vac and they have the vac bags to go with the ziplock vac machine. i read that the ziplock vac bags can be used with the handi vac machine.
