Packaging of freezeasy bags.”
Why oh why do you only supply all sizes of bags in boxes.they take up so much room.It was great when you had the flat dispenser packs as these could be hung up. I have been using these bags for over 30 years and the quality is great.Just don't like the fact they are now all in boxes.

Freezeasy Roll Bags No.4”
I bought a roll of No.4 Freezeasy bags assuming they were equivalent to the supermarket product that we use. Alas! Their dimensions are 200mm x 300mm against the 380 x 250 I normally have. The result was that I was unable to get small farmhouse loaves in without a terrible struggle and when I had succeeded I found there was not enough room to evacuate the air and seal them. No doubt they will be usable for other things & I shall have to get the No.5 instead, which are slightly too big at 380 x 250. As a product it is of course first class, so I have no qualms about rating it 5-star.

Freezeasy Roll Bags”
by Mrs Bolton
Unlike some of your correspondents, I like the roll bags much better than the flat packs which slithered around in my cupboard, and I don't want them hanging up, though I know some do. whereas the boxes stack neatly and the bags come out easily. I too have been a customer since way back when you were first Lakeland Plastics and not much else.

don't fix what's not broke!”
by Mrs Hepple
I have been a Lakeland shopper for many years, always look forward to the next catalogue arriving, I have to agree, please bring back the flat packs, much easier these need 2 hands to pull apart instead of being easily removed from the flat pack, what about people who are unable to grip with two hands, the boxes are chunky to store, the old flat packs were accessible to all, PLEASE BRING THEM BACK!

Bring back the flat packs”
by Mrs Irene Froy
I too have been a customer since all you sold was freezer bags but please bring back the flat packs. I can't fit the boxes so easily into the space with the result they get squashed and the box disintegrates. So now I have loose rolls of bags shuffling together in the drawer! Also these need 2 hands to pull apart instead of being easily removed from the flat pack with one hand. I'm too loyal a customer to change suppliers so please help before I go mad!! The bags are 5 star - the boxes 1 so I'll give them 3 in this pack.

These freezeasy bags are the best ever and have been buying these for years. BUT - I would prefer the flat pack as I hang a pack of each size in my kitchen. Instead of just grabbing a few bags - now have to fiddle about with a roll and no place to stack them.

Great product but I want to hang them up!”
by Mrs Peck
I have been using Lakelend bags since the time when that was almost all that you sold! They are exceptionally good quality, and up to all sorts of abuse, especially in our cavernous chest freezer. I re-use them over & over after washing them out, until they eventually get holes and have to be re-cycled. My only grouse now is the boxes! I have had the hanging bags inside the door of my cupboard for years, but now I don't have room for the boxes - I use 6 different sizes. The bags are not on a cardboard roll, so I can't even make up a hanging dispenser like a series of kitchen roll holders! PLEASE bring back the bags - or better still, sell a reasonably-priced door dispenser.

a mainstay in my kitchen”
These bags are absolutely excellent and I love having them on a roll. They are strong and store easily and very neatly, in a drawer or in a basket. You get what you pay for and I wanted quality, which I received

I can't recommend these freezer bags enough, my mum has used them as long as I can remember and now I'm married and in my own home I'm using them too. I use size 4 for freezing 2-man helpings of home-made soup.

Freezer bags are most useful. to store food

Small is beautiful”
You wouldn't imagine a 5 x 7 inch bag would be useful for much, but you'd be wrong. I'm starting to think it's almost the only size I need. Many pre-packed foods contain too much for one meal for one person, and my husband eats meat and fish while I do not. We store and freeze all kinds of things in one-person portions, with absolutely no waste: Single chicken breasts (buy a pack of four, freeze three singly), steaks & fish fillets (buy two and freeze one), minced or diced meat (split a pack in two), sausages (freeze in pairs), garden-grown soft fruit and veg (one portion per bag), and much more. These diminutive bags are even just large enough to store a opened block of cheese in the fridge. My sister uses them to wrap her son's lunches and snacks. I often vacuum seal the contents with my heat-sealer, and the bags seal perfectly and save on wasted material from an otherwise too-wide roll. Also great with klippits!
