Yeah, use the "Moist" setting and make the bags a bit bigger.
I thought the spaghetti had been squished into mush but
it came out just fine.

I wouldn't have tried any kind of pie or easily squishable item
because it does squeeze it a bit. I wonder how they did the
"pot pie" item. The cobbler I can see.

I sealed refried beans, taco meat, mashed potatoes, marinara
sauce, sautee'd mushrooms, seasoned raw steaks, chicken in
marinade, Ranch Style beans, fajita chicken, pretty much anything
you want sealed and either just warmed up or that can be opened.
Any foods left over were put in double freezer ziploc bags and
they were sometimes carefully reheated in hot water.


It’s tax season, make sure to follow these few simple tips
