Good buy

These silicone food storage bags were exactly as described and well made. My only issue is the difficulty sliding the bar across the top. I'm hoping it eases up with more use. Next time, I may try "zip" tops.
Tough to use

I was attracted to the idea of not being so environmentally offensive with the use of disposable zip-loc bags. The reality, though, is that (in my opinion, anyway) these are more trouble than it's worth even for a very eco-motivated person. The biggest trouble points are getting the hard-plastic slider rod on and off (*maybe* it will loosen up over time, and moisture from water does help a little as they say, but so far not enough, and I dare say some people won't be strong enough to get very far with a tryout) and the fact that getting the inside air-dried after washing this bag is an awkward hassle – just too inconvenient for everyday use. I think it should be considered as a possible replacement not so much for zip-locs as for permanent food storage containers (glass, plastic, whatever) – because these bags do save space. If space is your issue and you're willing to go through the difficulties this product presents, then you might consider it. Otherwise I'd say it's a valiant try but a too-costly no-go.
Disappointing

This is one of the few items I wasn't happy with from The Grommet. It was to difficult to balance and use standing up, the closing and opening bars were awkward, and it was difficult to clean. I wouldn't recommend it.
Hard to use

They are hard to clean and dry, and very difficult to take the slider off and put back on...
Awesome!

I love no longer adding to the landfill or trying to store diverse sizes and shapes of storage containers just to deal with a few leftovers.

Reusable Silicone Food Storage Bags-Set of 4

These reusable silicone food storage bags do a lot more than the toss-out plastic ones can—like stand up. They’re airtight and leak-proof thanks to a sealing slider, and so a great choice for storing liquids like soup and sauces. The bags have a flat bottom for easy filling and can go in the microwave, oven, dishwasher, and freezer. You can even write on one with a dry erase marker.

EcoLifeMate

EcoLifeMate reusable food storage bags come from Maker Jay Smith, who was looking to curtail his family’s excessive plastic baggie habit. He even tried washing them out for reuse, but that was a soggy, not-so-great idea. Jay decided to make a better baggie that does the usual jobs and much more.

His sturdy silicone solution is a stand-out in the kitchen. These durable flat-bottom bags stand up for easier filling and have a slider top that creates a leak-proof seal. (Storing soup in a bag? It can be done.) The bags can go in the oven, microwave, dishwasher, and freezer—heck, you can even write on one with a dry erase marker.

When you think about it, Jay managed to tackle two problems. He built a versatile, functional, and eco-friendlier baggie and was able to toss out his throw-away guilt, all at once.
