I also have the Pro 11
Where do you get the 2 qt jars?
Do they use the regular wide mouth lids?
Some people on the Yahoo Food Saver Forum said they buy the 1 gal jars of pickles, seal the pickles in packages, and use the jar for other large volumn items.
I get a lot of my frozen veggies from Schwan's home delivery. They are in zip lock bags that I can never reseal. The use regular Food Saver bags for sealing the unused potrtion would be too costly.
I'm about ready to try freezing a canister.
BTW if you get a canister with a crack in it, try sealing it with the clear plastic packing tape.
I have one that the bottom got spider web cracking. I taped it and have been using it for brown sugar for over 3 months.
