I've tried many other brands of vacuum bags, and this one is by far the worst. Not only does it leak while in the freezer (meaning that air gets into it); it also developed a huge rip while in the water during sous vide cooking, resulting in uncooked chicken juices spilling out in the water and contaminating the sous vide device. This was the very first use of the bag. Sucks!
Its cost is comparable to some other cheaper vacuum bags (I'm not talking about the Warring Pro ones -- which are more expensive, but excellent and can be reused multiple times), but the quality is bad.
They work with my handheld that I got here on Amazon, as a matter of fact I think they are the same ones that came with my handheld. Holds a seal and are large enough to put quite a bit of stuff in them I wish I had gotten the quart size also but these will work. You need to know that when placed in the freezer the seal will sometimes release and these bags will be about the same value as a regular ziploc
Skeptical at first, how could this machine suck out air in a plastic bag. Well it does, and pretty darn well too. I use this primarily for my Anova sous vide cooking, and since I've used it only twice so far, am very pleased with its capabilities.
