Tilia FoodSaver Bags

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I just got a new Tilia FoodSaver vacuum . It came with a roll of bags and some bags already made up 8/11.5 inches. The directions say not to use other types of bags (of course!) Has anyone else used other types of bags; that hopefully cost less that the ones from that mfg?? Thanks in advance.

How much are you expecting to pay for the bags? I think mine cost $13 for 20 ft roll of 8/11.5

CJ, I got one of these last winter and it's great!!! No more stale crackers, chips, cookies, or spoiled avacado half. (I'm a great granny living by myself, so such things don't go fast!) I found the Tilia bags at Costco for a very good price. Check there, or maybe Walmart or some such discount store. You can use full size mason jars, too. The instructions are in the booklet for this. In preparation for Y2K, I've been dehydrating fresh fruit and veggies, then sealing them into the Tilia bags. The bags are reusable after washing them. I've used 'em till there's only about 3 inches left! My middle daughter wants me to will my Tilia to her! Enjoy!

Stick with Tilia's bags. I have tried others, they just won't work. We have resused Tilia's bags over and over; Just cut them several inches more than what's needed for the 1st use. They are a bargan!!

I just bought for $26.00, a box with (2) 8 1/2 rolls and (2) of the larger Tillia bags at Sam's. That's less than half price! Ab

Thanks for the info Ab. Where do you live? My Sam's usually does not carry the stuff that gets posted here.

MoVe Immediate.
