I want to use ziploc bags rather than vacuum bagsFrom a safety perspective, do I need to buy a specific type of ziploc bag?
Thanks in advance
I prefer the Ziploc FREEZER bags. They're THICK and the new ones have a DOUBLE zip arrangement.
Never had a fail yet.
Another vote for Ziploc Freezer bags. I prefer using my food saver for long cooks, but I don't hesitate to use Ziploc Freezer bags for short cooks at temps below 170F.
I use these they are good. I just put it in a ziplock bag and then the other bag. And I pump all the air out. Then I open the ziplock bag. And all the juice stays in the zip lock. And the other bag is reusable. Once in a while if I don't seal it tight the juice leaks but still most stays in the zip lock bag.
Yes, as mentioned above, use freezer grade ziplock bags. Another option, if you want to minimize plastic waste, would be reusable silicone bags.
Ditto on Ziplock FREEZER bags (also used Glad brand freezer storage bags) .I've used them for an 8 hour cook at 165F (chicken confit in Recipes section).
