I love my vacuum sealer (seal-a-meal brand that I got for a steal!)

I agree, meat tastes great vacuum sealed. Even after a year in the freezer there is no damage from freezer burn. I cooked some 2 year old ground beef once and it tasted great, no damage.

Because I buy them in bulk, I never reuse any of the bags. Aside from the savings on food, there is also the savings on time and effort. My main use for the Food Saver is for meat. I would rather wrap six individual chicken legs and thaw out two at a time using the small pint bag. I have better control over how much food I thaw out and cook. Never more than I am going to eat. Then toss the bag. Not worth the effort to wash, dry and save.

I got my order in last night. My 6 pack of 8" bags was a 5 pack. I called this morning and Bonnie assured me the correction would be sent within 24 hours. She was very nice on the phone.

Are they 22' or 20' long rolls?
It appears Tilia has shortened the roll length for 11" wide from 18' to 16'.

I didn't measure them.

I have to trust that what was listed on the site is accurate.
