I just wanted to say THANK YOU CAFEMOM for selecting me to give the new Hefty Slider bags a try and here is my opinion: I will say that they held a lot more items than I would have thought and there was no leaks whatsoever. They truly held up to their promise of being HEFTY! I also loved that easy to write on label, which made things that I put in the freezer easier to identify! LOL If you got them wet though, you would have to dry the label area before it would take ink. The only other issue I had was that on occasion, the sliders appeared to go off track so I would have to keep sliding them back and forth until they would catch and then seal, which happened on more than one occasion.
Raw chicken that I was marinating--It held three very large and very plump whole chicken breasts in the quart-sized bag, which surprised me that it could hold so much!
Look! No leaks, which is very important when dealing with raw chicken! It then held the cooked chicken breasts without issue as well!
The gallon bags were also quite strong and held 5 lbs worth of garlic cloves!
It didnt even burst under all that weight!
Really awesome product! I will be buying them in the future! Thanks again CafeMom for introducing me to a fantastic product, especially for Mothers who prepare meals ahead of time and freeze them!
