In the bag, there are 3 chicken breasts.
Along with these chicken breasts is an Asian-type marinade.
This bag is closed, vacuum sealed.
It’s been hiding at the back of your freezer. For a year now.
You’re at the office.
Your teenager calls.
“ Mom, what are we having for dinner? I’m soooo hungry! Are you going to come home late? “
« Oh give me a break! » goes your mind. « Let this kid grow up a bit and get something ready for himself! I can’t believe I have to go through this with a fifteen-year-old! »
You suddenly remember your marinated chicken breasts. They need to be thawed and cooked.
« Ok darling, you’re going to look in the freezer for a bag with Asian-style chicken breasts. Call me back when you find it.»
“Ok Mom, but are you going to come late?”
“Don’t worry, we’ll speak in 2 minutes. Bye!”
Your phone rings again.
“Ok Mom, what do I do with the chicken?”
“What does it say on the bag?”
“Cook in the oven, in the pan or on the BBQ."
“We’re going to do it in the oven, You will turn on the oven at the temperature it says and while you’re waiting for the oven light to turn off, you’re going to put the bag in cold water to thaw it a little. When the chicken gets softer, take it off from the bag, put it in a pan and place the pan in the oven. You can make some rice and cook a bag of asparagus in the microwave.”
“Ok, now at what time will you get home, Mom?”
“I don’t think I’ll be too late, hopefully, there’s not too much traffic.”

Other bags are incomplete
You probably know Ziploc type freezer bags. These bags cannot be vacuum-sealed because the heat necessary for sealing to occur will melt them. The material they are made of isn’t made for keeping out air and humidity for long periods.
Freezer burns will start to affect the food much more quickly with these so-called freezer bags than with bags like Seal'n Cook.
Zipped bags are not officially approved for sous vide cooking and definitely not for boiling water use since they cannot withstand high temperatures.
Bags for the microwave
Bags for reheating in boiling water
Have you ever thawed pouches of sauce in boiling water?
The food industry has access to many types of bags to be used for different purposes and made with different materials. However, consumers did not have access to this bag on the market.
Sous-vide cooking bags
If you are part of a few happy trendsetters, you may already be enjoying sous vide cooking.
Even though many Sous vide cooking websites say that it is possible to use zipped freezer bags for sous vide cooking, there are a lot of issues with this claim.
First, it is very difficult to achieve perfect vacuum using only Archimede’s principle (water pressure). Bubbles can remain and these bubbles will make the bag float. This can cause food poisoning if food is not completely immerged.
Vacuum sealing your food also prevents spills and messes.
On the other hand, you can perform two successive sous vide operations. For example, you can cook, freeze, re-heat another day the same food without ever having to open the bag. The fact that you have a sealed bag is very useful in these cases. Sous vide cooking requires temperatures that range from 56,5 °C to 90°C. Ziploc bags are not designed for such high temperatures.
Certified safe for cooking, boiling water and microwave use.
The Seal'n Cook bag has been tested by an independent organization for all of the aforementioned uses.
Only Seal'n Cook has had the scientific research done to guarantee that there is no transfer of plastic components from the plastic to the food.
Seal'n Cook is the only brand that promotes cooking in the bag with the three cooking methods most used by consumers: boiling water, sous vide and microwave (with an opened bag).
