Foodsaver Sealer

I was wondering if anyone has used the FoodSaver to seal their individual cookie bags?   I have a FoodSaver but only used it a few times long ago before I ever started cookie making.  It has a seal only option.  I tested on the foodsaver bags and they worked perfectly.  I guess I need to buy the polypropylene bags and give it a shot.  Does anyone know if Michaels sell the poly bags?

I used my Foodsaver for many years to seal my cookies.  It worked wonderful with cello bags I purchased at my local cake supply store.  It died about 2 years ago and I got an impulse sealer which I love.(It was an older professional model (the Foodsaver).

 

I still miss my Foodsaver, I got alot of use out of it!

I have a Food Saver with the seal only feature and have sealed treat bags, potato chip bags, cracker sleeves, rice bags, brown sugar bags... I just don't let it seal for the "standard time". 

 

I just tried a "treat bag" (which was pretty thin...I got it at Michael's).  I counted to 5 (not slowly, so maybe 3 seconds) and flipped the latch up to stop it and raised the lid and removed it immediately.  Perfect seal, no bag melting.  I have melted a plastic bag before but just moved down a tad (it was a bag of rice I think) and sealed again for just a brief couple of seconds.  Works beautifully to keep all of my pantry items from going stale in our incredibly humid environment.  One thing I also have noted from experience...the seal bar on the Food Saver, after using repeatedly, gets hot...so reducing the seconds of seal time as you do larger numbers would be a good idea so as not to get to the melting stage.  Hope this helps!
