Bought it to use with my vacuum sealer. Make sure your bag edge is dry and that any moisture or liquid is far away enough that the suction wont be able to suck the water to the edge within like 20 seconds of the machine running. These bags are heavyweight.
Bags work well
Best bags out there much better than foodsaver bags, they are tougher and seem to draw more air out than the other bags. You can draw the air out on any side and I have even washed and reused bags that I have not used for meat products.
