    ZIPLOC® brand Bags cannot be used to boil food. Unfortunately, we do not manufacture a "boilable" bag.

    We do not recommend using any ZIPLOC® brand Bag in boiling water, or to "boil" in the microwave. ZIPLOC® brand Bags are made from polyethylene plastic with a softening point of approximately 195 degrees Fahrenheit. By pouring near boiling water (water begins to boil at 212 degrees) into the bag, or putting the bag into the water, the plastic could begin to melt.

    If you have future comments or product information needs, we invite you to visit or e-mail us at www.scjbrands.com.

    I'm going to try this, but I will use FoodSaver Bags, which you can boil/microwave. I'll just remove most of the air by hand and set the sealer on seal only.

    Will make the big trips to the cabin much easier.
