After using this for a week, the bags have definitely kept the air out, and the package is still airtight. This is great for keeping food fresh and especially for marinating because the entire meat will be in contact with the marinade. I wouldn't use a manual pump though as it took me a bit to figure out how to keep the pump on the correct place. So I used an electric one I had instead. But the bags are good.

I bought this as a compliment to my new Instant Pot, and it was worth it! Perfect for cooking steaks (I prefer medium rare) to perfection. If you're cooking meat in the bags, be sure to have a pan nice and hot and slip it right into the pan out of the bag for the perfect char. I made steaks ahead of time and put them in the fridge in the bags, then charred the outside when it was time to eat (and cooked one a little longer for a friend who prefers his steak medium well)!

Perfect for chicken as well! I used the bags to gather the juices coming off of leg quarters for chicken broth. My son loves my chicken soup but hates meat in soup, so this works great! Bone broth flavor (and the delicious flavor of skin on chicken) without adding extra calories! I can't wait to try it for fajitas!!!

I have only used two of the bags so far and they both leaked. It is very difficult to pull a vacuum with the pump. As I press down on the valve in the bag it often sealed against the other side of the bag and does not pull the air out of the bag itself. When I did get have some success with the pump, the little bit of liquid that was in the bag tried to come out first and filled the pump with juices.

The bags are supposed to be reusable but I was not able to use either bag a second time.

This is the best thing ever , never using regular ziplock bags again , only this .
It takes 2 minuets to take out the air , without using so much strength.
If you buy this , just let you know you have to do it on a flat surface.

i found this pump system messy to use. Works well once you get it pumped.
