cleaning the garage yesterday, we came upon a dazey 
seal-a-meal that was given to us (used) several years ago 
when the previous owner said that he could not find bags 
for it easily enough.

nowadays, bags can be found almost everywhere in varying 
styles.  does anyone know...

how to tell if it is working without buying the bags? 
 could i test drive it on a regular plastic sandwich or 
ziplock bag without gumming up the works?

do you have to use the brand bags with the brand sealer?

how important is the vacumm feature?  i think this is just 
a straight sealer.

if this is easy enough to test out, and works, i may be 
starting a few choruses of 'pennies from heaven' for next
