Why is my FoodSaver not sealing?
Then, why is my FoodSaver not vacuuming?
If the bag won't vacuum, test the bags by first sealing the bag, then place it in a sink with enough water to be able to submerge the entire bag. If you see bubbles, the bags may be defective. If there are no bubbles and the bags hold their air, there may be a problem with the vacuum pump of the unit.
Additionally, can you boil seal a meal bags? 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. As long as you use a FoodVacBags vacuum sealer bag and ensure that the cooking pot is large enough and has plenty of water, your food will turn out great!
Subsequently, one may also ask, can you use any bags with vacuum sealers?
You are using a chamber vacuum sealer: One of the perks of the chamber vacuum sealer is that you can use ANY of our bags, rolls or pouches with it. The mesh is not required for this type of machine because the air is not "sucked" out of the bag; it is evacuated from the entire chamber.
