General Questions                                       

1.Are Daintii Bags safe for food use?
·Yes. Daintii Bags are made of materials that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined to be safe for food use.
 
2.Are Daintii bags BPA free?
·None of our Daintii branded bags, rolls contains Bisphenol A.
 
3.What are Daintii Bags made of?
·Daintii Bags are made of polyethylene and nylon for added strength and rigidity.
 
4.Are the Daintii Bags & Rolls recyclable?
·No, Daintii Bags & Rolls are not recyclable. Please follow the disposal guidelines and requirements of your local municipality.
 
5.Can Daintii Bags be washed?
· Yes, but it depends on the previous contents of the bag. Daintii Bags that previously contained fruits, vegetables, breads and dry goods can be washed and reused. Daintii Bags that contained raw meats, fish, eggs or un-pasteurized cheese should be discarded after use because they may contain invisible bacteria that will remain after washing. Daintii Bags that contained greasy or oily foods should also be discarded, as they may be difficult to clean. Daintii Bags can be washed by hand. Dry completely. They can then be re-vacuumed.
 
6.Can Daintii Bags be re-sealed?
·Yes. Just cut off the existing seal, remove as much food as you need, then re-vacuum seal. Be sure to wipe off any food or grease residue inside the Daintii bag near the seal area. You can also re-seal Daintii Bags after you have washed them.
 
7.What are Daintii Heat Seal Rolls?
·Daintii Bags and Daintii Rolls are made from the highest quality materials. Other storage methods, like foils, wraps and conventional zipper bags do not provide the same long term protection against freezer burn and spoilage as the Daintii Vacuum Sealing System. Our unique system takes the air out and keeps it out by creating a durable, airtight Heat Seal.
 
8.Can I boil Daintii bags?
·Daintii Bags and Daintii rolls are simmer safe for sous vide cooking.Simmering is a food preparation technique in which foods are cooked in hot liquids kept just below the boiling point of water (which is 100 °C or 212 °F).
 
9.Can Daintii Bags be put in the freezer?
·Yes. Daintii Bags are ideal for the freezer because they will keep all air and moisture out, preventing food from getting freezer burn and becoming dry and tasteless.
 
10.Can Daintii Bags be put in the microwave?
·Yes. You can heat cooked foods, such as leftovers, in a Daintii bag. The bags should never be used to cook raw foods. When microwaving, cut open a corner of the bag before putting it in the microwave so steam can escape. Avoid microwaving foods containing a lot of oil, as oil will get hot very quickly and could cause the sides of the bag to stick together.
 
11.Daintii Bags & Rolls
 · Do not re-use bags after simmering or microwaving.
  
12.Do I have to use the Daintii Bags?
Can I vacuum seal in other plastic bags?
·To vacuum seal with the Daintii system, you must use Daintii Bags and Rolls. They are specially designed to be strong enough for vacuum sealing and the waffle pattern in the bag that makes sure air does not get caught in pockets around the food.
·Daintii Bags and Rolls have five layers, including an outer layer of nylon. This configuration completely prevents air and moisture from getting back into the bag and prevents odors from getting out or in. Other plastic bags allow air to seep through.
·If you want to use your Daintii appliance to re-seal, but not vacuum package a bag (without removing the air first) you can use it on Mylar type (strong, thin polyester) or stiff plastic bags, not any other types. For example, you can re-seal potato chip bags.
 
13.I have a different food packaging appliance made by another company. Can I use the Daintii bags with it?
·Our Daintii Bags and Rolls are designed for Daintii units only. The sealing bar on your unit may either be too hot, which will melt the bags, or too cool, which will result in a bag that is not sealed properly.
 
14.How thick are Daintii bags?
·All Daintii brand heat-seal bags and rolls are constructed of multi-layer plastic for a durable, air-tight seal. 
 Daintii Bags – Heat-Seal       Twill Dew side: 6.2-12.4mils thick
   

How to Use                                                                

    

1.How to make custom-sized bags from a daintii roll?
(1)Cut the desired length with the built-in cutter. Make sure to cut in a straight line as much as possible.
(2)Open the lid and place the open end of the bag down into the vacuum chamber.
(3)Press both sides of the lid until you hear two locking sounds.
(4)Press the {seal} button, and the LED will turn on. When the LED turns off again, the process is finished.
(5)Press buttons on both sides of the lid to release the sealed bag. The custom-sized bag is ready for vacuuming and sealing.
NOTE 1: Make sure you give the appliance time to cool down. Wait at least 40 seconds between seals. NOTE 2: The appliance will time out after a couple of minutes if a proper vacuum cannot be achieved.
 
2.How to vacuum package with daintii bags?  
(1)Place the items to be sealed into a pre-cut or custom-sized bag. Leave at least 2.5 inches between the contents and the top of the bag to allow for bag contraction.
(2)Open the lid, and place the open end of the bag into the vacuum chamber.
(3)Close Lid. Press firmly on both sides of the lid until you hear two “click”sounds, indicating that both sides have clicked into place.Note: Sealer will not operate if the lid is not closed properly. NOTE:Sealer will not operate if Lid is not properly closed.
(4)To prevent crushing delicate items, you should choose “Gentle” mode before “Vac Seal.” The default mode settings are “Dry Food” and “Normal.”Then, press the [Vac Seal] button, and the bag will be vacuumed and sealed automatically. When the indicator light turns off again, the process is finished. (5)Press the buttons on either side of the lid to release the sealed bag. Refrigerate or freeze as needed.

3.Foods That Should Not Be Vacuum Sealed
We hope all of these simple tips will help you to keep your fruits & veggies fresher... longer!
DO NOT VACUUM SEAL:
(1)SOFT CHEESES(While it is safe to vacuum seal hard cheeses soft cheeses may actually mold faster in a vacuum than in regular air.)
(2)RAW BANANAS / MUSHROOMS(Because of their natural ripening these may actually decay FASTER under a vacuum seal.)
(3)WHOLE APPLES(When you vacuum seal apples they must be sliced, and put a small bit of lemon juice on the slices to prevent them from browning.)
(4)RAW ONIONS/ GARLIC/CABBAGES / LETTUCE(Some vegetables produce natural gases that may result in a loss of vacuum.)
(5)FRESHLY COOKED OR STEAMED VEGGIES (Hot steam from cooking may cause a loss of vacuum. So, before you seal your cookedveggies let them come to room temperature - and then vacuum seal.)
 
4.Air was removed from the bag, but now air has re-entered.
(1)Check the seal of the bag. There may be a hole or wrinkle that is allowing air to re-enter the bag. Carefully cut the bag open and reseal it, or use an entirely new bag.
(2)Make sure there is no moisture or liquid from the food present within the bag. You may need to cut open the bag and reseal it, or use an entirely new bag.
(3)Make sure there were no food items with sharp edges that may have punctured the bag. If you find a puncture hole seal the item in an entirely new bag. (4)Make sure no liquids were drawn to the sealing strip area.
(5)Check for loose, worn or cracked Upper and Lower Sealing Gaskets.
(6)Moisture of foods with high liquid content will prevent the bag from sealing properly. Cut the bag open and wipe the top inside the bag and reseal. (7). Fermentation or the release of natural gases from inside the foods may have occurred. When this happens, food may have begun to spoil and should be discarded.
 
5.Air is not vacuumed from the bag
(1)Check the there are not gaps, folds, wrinkles or holes in the pre-sealed bags.
(2)Check for loose, worn or cracked Upper and Lower Sealing Gaskets.
(3)Too much liquid in the bag, freeze before vacuuming.
(4)Check to see if the bag is properly inserted in to the Vacuum Chamber.
(5) Make sure you've placed the bag in the proper place. When making a bag from a roll, make sure the end of the cut piece is on Sealing Strip.
 
6.Bag will not seal
(1)Check that there aren't any gaps, folds, wrinkles or holes in pre sealed edges.
(2)Too much liquid in the bag, freeze before vacuuming. Moisture of foods with high liquid content will prevent the bag from sealing properly.
(3)Make sure you've placed the bag in the proper place. When making a bag from a roll, make sure the end of the cut piece is on Sealing Strip.
(4 ) Make sure you give the appliance time to cool down. Wait at least 40 seconds between seals.
(5)Make sure there is enough bag material to reach the center of the vacuum chamber. Always allow 2.5 inches (6.35 cm) extra space to allow the bag to seal tightly around food contents.
(6)Gently stretch bag flat while inserting.
(7)Check for food debris around seal area. If present, take out the gasket, clean it and reinsert the Gasket into the Vacuum Channel.
 
7.How can I tell if a bag is defective or has been damaged from previous use?
A good way to test a bag is to just seal both ends of the bag-do not vacuum seal the bag. Submerge the bag in water for a few seconds and look for bubbles in the bag itself or near the seal strip area. If there are bubbles, the bag is defective or has been damaged from previous use. Use another bag.
 
8.When you get to the end of a roll of bag material, why won't the bags seal?
Try cutting off about 1/2 inch from the end of the bag. It is possible that the very end of the roll was compressed when rolled. Also, make sure you have made a straight cut. Check to see if you have the end of the bag over the gasket or into the vacuum channel. It should only go up to the gasket, no further.
 
9.Which side of the bag should be placed into the vacuum channel?
Place the embossed (rough) side down. If the bag is curling (the end of the roll may do this), place the
 
10.Which side of the bag should be placed on the seal bar?
Place the embossed (rough) side down. If the bag is curling (the end of the roll may do this), place the curled side down over the seal bar and can be used either side up.
 
11.Why did my my bag melt?
If your bag melts, the Sealing Strip may have become too hot. Always wait at least 40 seconds between seals for the appliance to cool down before you vacuum seal another item.
