    Default Food Saver Rolls - Beware alternate brands

    Just wanted to share my experiences with trying alternates for
    Food Saver rolls.

    I was re-ordering Food Saver rolls from a place in Miami that had
    good prices, and I noticed they had other brands for quite a bit less,
    so decided to try two of the small sizes as an experiment. They
    came with close-spaced vertical channel ridges along both sides of the
    sheet, and you can feel them sticking up. They were a disaster.

    I put some cheese in one, vacuum sealed it, and it looked OK at first,
    and
    put it in the fridge. Well, two days later, for no apparent reason,
    the air was back in the package. I examined the sealed areas closely
    and the seals appeared good, but obviously were not. So, I guess the
    Food Saver either does not heat the plastic long enough for this type
    of roll or the plastic itself leaks.

    Order from the company. www.jardenstore.com When you order 1 roll,
    the price is $9.99/roll, 10 rolls the price is $6.99/roll. Mine did
    not come in individual boxes. I don't remember the shipping but no
    sales tax and it was cheaper than buying them at the outlet kitchen
    store.
