Thanks for the link, Rose. I've looked at these in the past but haven't yet bought one. I was thinking I'd like to use it to package cookies for special events. What do you use it for?

Thanks, Rose! That looks really cool! thumbs_up.gif I see they are talking about poly bags. Have you tried it with cello? I am guessing as much, but thought I would ask. Thanks for sharing!

I, too, was thinking of cello bags instead of poly. I'd like to know what you think of both types of bags once you've had a chance to play around with the sealer.

I haven't played with it yet(I've been too sick) but my Dh has.

I only use the crunchy type cello bags so that is all I have on hand here.

It worked great, we just have to figure out what heat setting gives consistent results and just how tight I want the seal to be. He started low and got a great seal that was fairly easy to get apart without needing scissors.

That was pretty much the type of seal I got with my Foodsaver.

I'll be playing with it soon cause I'm finally getting better!

Feel better soon, Rose! I popped into our local cake store and played with hers with a cello bag. It worked really well and it is a matter of how you adjust the heat as for whether it will cut all the way through and do a seal or just do a seal, leaving excess above. I may have to retire my hair straightener. (Never fear, it was only used for bags. icon_lol.gif )

What thickness of bag do you use with your food sealer? I have one but never thought about using it because I don't know what other types of bags it will seal without melting them.

Boy I wish I had the money for one. I'd be sealing my leftover fondant colors in it for the next time I needed them.

Hope you're feeling better quick so you can play with your new toy.

I have successfully resealed potato chip bags among many other fairly thick bags.
For cookies, I use the cello bags found in any craft store and the sealer works great....you have to trim excess yourself.
