5 Why does the "Seal Only" function still vacuums the bag?
Because we are designing the sealing machine, we considered that if the sealing is not complete due to some factors (such as water or oil on the bag you are using), there will be a pumping action after sealing to test whether the sealing is completely sealed status! This design can prevent the food from spoiling due to incomplete sealing during the sealing process.
6 Which bag size would be best for 2 chicken breasts?
First, I purchase my vac bags from 'Lemon Tree Foods' www.VacandPac.com. The bags are sturdy and a quality product. I have an assortment of sizes that fills my needs. I have roll - width 11 inches. I have a roll - width 8 inches. I have pre-cut bags sized 12 inches by 8 inches. And finally, I have pre-cut bags sized 12 inches by 6 inches. I use the pre-cut 12 by 8 the most. This is a good size for double count chicken breasts. Use 12 by 6 for single count chicken breast. I find the roll's necessary for vac'ing food in cook ware ready for oven. When using roll cut-your-own size bags be sure to double seal each end. I make two meat loafs at-a-time: cook one and vac the other in its pan using the large width roll. Mac and cheese: make two - cook one - vac the other using a meat loaf pan. I vac foods that I'm not going to freeze just to give the food longer shelf life in the frig. Give those left-overs (think stews) an extra 5 days freshness. YOU CAN VAC JARS FOR THE SOUPS! BTW, I'm still using my KitchenBoss Vac machine with no problems.
