It works exactly as it says. I have had the device for about a month now and I use it on all my bags of snacks. I have game night once a week so I go through chips and pretzels a lot. I use to have to throw them away after the third week of using them, but I'm still on my same bag of Doritos that I opened a month ago and I can't sense any staleness in them. Now I didn't seal a bag all the way once and they did get stale. Best way to check is to gently squeeze the bag to see how much air is escaping. I would recommend this to friends and I all have to all my game night friends.
With COVID and people panic buying I felt it was a good investment to grab these mini bag sealers. I'm giving one to my sister and keeping one for myself. They are easy to use once you get the hang of it.. if you push too hard it will literally cut a hole in the bag from the heat so be careful with pressure. I have small hands and they fit in them nicely too. One side cuts and one side to seals. I'll be using these to reseal snacks and chips etc!!! I think they might make good stocking stuffers for people who prepare foods often. I'm very pleased with my purchase. The little top piece that clicks on to keep it closed with a hook too so you can hang it in a pantry on a shelf or somewhere similar.
These are handy little gadgets to have. They seal up my chip bags and cereal bags without any air leaks. You have to press and hold it a few seconds to get the heat started, then slide it across the bag to seal. The heat is what seals the bag air tight. The other side has a cutter and it works great also. My boys, 10 and 12, are able to use this without any difficulty so that is a plus in my book!
It worked 100% correctly. I mainly used it for shrink wrap bags and held the press on for maybe 4 seconds and the bags were sealed. If I happened to hold them on to the shrink wrap too long they did melt so I had to learn asap just how long to press it. I also used it to seal my chip bags since I used tape and it was a big help also. The fact that it’s small enough to carry in my baking bag, is a plus👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾
This product actually works, and it works really well! It saves us room in the pantry and other storage areas, it saves our snacks and other food to make it stay fresh longer, it keep bugs out and from being attracted to the pantry, and they're easy then to open, cut down the packaging and then re-seal it till next time. There are some types of plastic it won't work on but most chip bags and cereal bags etc it works really well to close up. Also works on the wild bird-seed bag, which is a welcomed discovery.
Came right on time. Item works perfectly after I realized I hadn't plugged it into the right socket. Doesn't take long to heat up and once hot, it takes, literally, a fraction of a second to do the sealing on a 3 mil plastic bag 2 in wide for homemade ice pops. It takes practice but well worth the effort for your particular project.
