How to Use Ziplock Bags in a Vacuum Sealer Foodsaver


Ziplock bags are useful for short-term storage due to the ease of opening and closing the bags. The seal on these bags is not strong enough for long-term food storage. A vacuum sealer is needed for long term food storage. Ziplock bags can be sealed with a FoodSaver for a stronger seal that can be used for long-term storage. The FoodSaver will remove the air and seal the Ziplock bag, allowing the contents to stay fresh for a much longer period of time.

Things You'll Need

  • FoodSaver
  • Scissors
  • Cut the Ziplock seal off the bag. Cut directly below the seal in order to get a straight cut.

  • Fill the Ziplock bag with whatever it is that you want to store.

  • Place the top of the Ziplock bag onto the sealing strip of the FoodSaver.

  • Press the "Vacuum & Seal" button. The air will be removed from the Ziplock bag. Once the air is removed, the FoodSaver will automatically seal the bag.

Tips & Warnings

  • Ziplock bags can be sealed and unsealed multiple times using a FoodSaver.
