Posted on August 22 2017

boil food saver bags

Many people who are new to vacuum sealing and sous vide cooking are hesitant to try boiling food sealed in food saver bags. They fear that the bag will leak some kind of chemical or harmful substance into their food. Improper sealing experiences and false stories reinforce their fear.

The reality is that boiling food in vacuum sealer bags that have been engineered for that purpose is not only an effective cooking method but 100% safe. Thousands of chefs in restaurants around the world have used this method for years. FoodVacBags are BPA free, phthalate free and are made of only materials approved by the FDA for food storage.

    Thanks so much. I found you on google. I had my first food saver sealed meal to reheat, so I read your website, and saw that you could in fact boil it. I boiled it for ten minutes or so. When I took the bag out, the bag opened and dumped into the boiling water. Now I have no dinner,.

    Thanks so much.

    Stephen
