This is for all the folks that have purchased the Reynolds Handi-Vac and now have to find an alternative for their machine. Please DO NOT THROW IT AWAY. Ziploc Brand bags work with your Handi-Vac pump and they cost about a third the price. Any wonder Reynolds thinks it's a good idea to discontinue the bags?

I'm one of those people-how do you use it with regular ziploc bags?

Food Saver recently put out a hand-held unit that is relatively cheap. I bet their bags would work (although they may be a little more expensive). They don't use the same ones that their vaccum sealer uses.

I tried to use the Ziplock bags but the Reynold's pump wouldn't suck the air out. I'll try again.

May I make a suggestion, Reynolds has a Facebook page, I think everyone needs to go there and tell them how much they love the product and how disappointed you are with them for discounting the bags. Let's beg them to put them back on the market, I'm really upset because I bought mine about a month ago and now I can't find the bag. Go to Facebook! Here's the link. Maybe if we let them know if they don't bring the bags back we will not buy anything of there's any longer.
