I need a handheld sealer, but don't want to spend a fortune on one. Anyone know the best place to get them? Thanks!

I bought a hair straighter with heat control. It works great on all my cookie bags. Hope this helps!

I bought a battery powered sealer (small) that you run across the bag from Walter Drake online catalog. Don't know if this will work for you.

I bought a lightly-used impulse sealer on eBay last year and got a good deal on it.

Thanks! I need to seal bags to take cookies to school for my boys' birthday treats. I'll look at the places mentioned!

Hair straightner? Does it get plastic on it?

Someone on here told me to get a impulse sealer on ebay, and I love it. The only thing I would do different is get a bigger one, I got a four inch, and it's hard to do bigger bags.

Do a serach on ebay for "impulse searler".

Mine is an 8" one. It's got adjustable heat settings. Very nice and quick and I can use different kinds of bags. There are some good bargains on eBay. I can get into a lot of trouble on there, LOL.

No, the straighter I bought has heat controls 1-30 and I put on 11 and it seals and does not stick. However the first time I tired it I turned it up too high and melted a bag, but it wiped off with a damp towel.
