I am located in the Dallas / Ft. Worth Metroplex and went to ACE resturant supply store and asked if they carried food safe bags, bigger than a zip lock bag and they did not. They only carried the Foodsaver bags.

Has anyone found the large food safe bags, probably 13 gallons are smaller?

Flip over the paper insert that came with your DVD and it mentions where to get them. icon_smile.gif

Thanks, but I was hoping somewhere I can buy in the store. I don't buy from the internet if I can drive to a store and pick it up.

Oh gotcha. Do you have a GFS (Gordon Food Service) near you? They have a ton of stuff that they don't stock in their Market Stores, but will ship there if you want them. They have a bunch of online catalogs of kitchen equipment and gadgets online and a copy in the stores. Check there.

Cool. Thanks. Do you need a business license to purchase from GFS? Or do they have cash and carry?

Nope, it's open to the public (is that cash and carry?). You can become a business member, but I'm not sure of the benefits of doing that.

I once saw some huge zipper type ones in several sizes at bass pro shop a few years ago.
Not sure if that helps.

Just to note, the storage (as in clothes storage, blanket storage) Big Bags by Ziploc are supposedly food-safe according to their website. I'm not sure if they would fit a bun pan or not. I have mine full of sheets, blankets, and summer stuff. icon_smile.gif

I just looked at GFS website (www. gfs . com) and they are not located in Texas. I guess I was thinking about SYSCO.

I have used the giant ziploc bags myself and there has never been a problem. It's wrapped tightly with the saran wrap and I just put them all together, get as much of the air out as possible, and then twist the bag and tie it up. HTH
