Will Food Saver machine/bags work?

I gifted my son a Nova sous vide for xmas and happen to have an extra food saver vacuum machine with a roll of bags..I suppose it is pretty much the same thing as the Sous Vide bags and machine? I offered it to him but just looking to see if anybody has used the food saver machine and bags for their cooking...

It's the perfect solution. I use a FS system to vacuum pack foods for SV. I buy rolls of bags from Walmart.

Plus-one. I would guess that most sous vide cooks use Foodsaver machines. I do.

I would love to have one of those restaurant level vacuum sealers that are instant, and work with liquids, but they are made of unobtanium. I think the cheapest one I've seen was around 900-bucks.

I figured as much..I got the actual Sous Vide brand machine and bags..I wasn't 100% sure the Foodsaver brand was designed for long term heating..didn't want to wreck a hunk of meat to find out that it wasn't..
