Occasionally someone will ask if they can use a Food Saver to vacuum seal a Mylar bags. In general, the answer to that is no; Food Savers are designed specifically to handle their particular channel bags.
I received an email last week from Don Sheets saying he had found a way to use a Food Saver to vacuum seal Mylar. Needless to say, I was intrigued. He followed up with a full set of pictures and explanation, which I now present to y’all! In essence, it is a method to create Food Saver Channel Bag ‘Straws’, which can then be used to vacuum seal a Mylar Bag. Very cool.
Thanks Don! (My apologies for the poor formatting, working with a group of pictures in WordPress is not yet my strong suit!)
Step 2: Score and Seal Food Saver Channel Bags. Repeat as many times as you have bags to seal.
