Very disappointing for cheese”
I had high hopes for these bags, I really wanted waxed bags to store cheese. They are useless! Certainly no moisture gets into the bag, but the cheese completely dries out in a couple of days and is unusable. Even the flavour of the cheese is removed. I do not recommend them for storing cheese.

A note from the team: Thanks for your feedback on the food saver bags, I'm sorry that these hadn't work as well as expected when storing cheese. I'll be in touch shortly.

WAXED PAPER BAGS”
by Mrs Rycroft
These are great for lunchboxes and for storing cold meats, cooked ham, poultry. For cheeses, any sweaty plastic wrappers are first removed and then they're stored in the bags -according to type- inside lidded glass ovenware containers in the fridge. That way, they keep fresh far longer and smelly cheeses don't take over the fridge, but check inside the container for condensation and always wash the container regularly.

Best ever sandwich bag. ”
by Mrs Pearce
Bought these bags as an eco friendly sandwich wrapper to take my lunch to work and found that they work beautifully, can be reused, keep left overs well and finally go in paper recycling or composting, what more could you want? Have bought many times.

Not appropriate for cheese”
by Jack Hanison
I bought these since I'd heard that keeping cheese wrapped in wax paper was the best way to ensure that cheese doesn't sweat and also remains protected from drying out. Unfortunately the wax paper that these bags are made from is too porous and the cheese easily dries out within a couple of days. I'm sure they're great for sandwiches, as the other reviews state to, but definitely no good for cheese. Jack

I was fed up with wrapping sandwiches in cling film so I looked for a paperbase replacement. These bags are perfect. Faster/easier to use, no leaking and rather versatile.

I find lunchboxes disappear at school, never to be seen again and I don't like using plastic bags because they are not 'green'. These bags are great. The food stays fresh and they have proved tough enough to prevent the occasional burst yogurt from leaking through onto school books.

These bags are excellent. I use them for my sons packed lunch and when we go on a picnic. The sandwich/roll/etc stays fresh and no leakage.
