We have a Foodsaver hand held unit to use with the Ziploc bags. We have been disappointed. It's been hard to get the Ziploc sealed reliably. Lately, I have been using a "C" battery like a rolling pin to help to make sure there is a lock.

Some won't seal, many have a slow leak, and a few worked really well.

For some reason I get a 10% failure rate with Food Saver bags. I leave stuff on the counter for about a week. If it's goin to fail it will do so by then. After that, into the bucket she goes.

I had that problem, since I've started double sealing the ends I haven't had a failure.
