20 1-QT + 20 300cc Oxygen Absorbers

This handy Combo Pack gives you
  • 10) 2-quart (½ gallon) Mylar bags with ziplock seals, plus
  • 10) 1-quart ziplock Mylar bags, plus
  • 2) 10-packs of 300 cc oxygen absorbers
The 2-quart size holds 3 lbs of rice or lentils and the 1-quart stand-up ziplock bags hold about half that much, approximately 1 1/2 pounds of rice or wheat. This size is also perfect for storing herbs and spices, and other things that you want in smaller quantities (maybe some M&M's?)

Oxygen absorbers need to be used in 1 hour or less after opening the bag. So get the food into 10 Mylar bags, add one oxygen absorber to each Mylar bags then zip them closed, squishing out what air you can (but DON’T vacuum seal them!). Once the bags are closed up you must seal the outer edge of each Mylar bag – just because they have a ziplock seal they still need to be heat sealed. Yes, 300cc is a bit of overkill in a 1-quart Mylar bag, but that doesn’t hurt anything. And it’s better to have a bit over-kill rather than “not quite enough” oxygen absorbers. You can seal the Mylar bags with our Optimum Heat Sealer or your clothing iron set to the hottest temperature.

These genuine Mylar bags are FDA Approved for food storage. And we never ever fold our Mylar bags.

PLEASE NOTE: Do not expect all your Mylar bags to look sucked in as if they were vacuum sealed. An oxygen absorber does NOT vacuum seal the bag, it gets rid of the oxygen, leaving all the nitrogen in the bag to protect your food. Sometimes the bags look sucked in, and sometimes they don't. As long as you used the oxygen absorbers in under an hour then you are good.

FoodSaver and Seal-A-Meal vacuum sealers do NOT reach a high enough temperature to seal the multi-layer Mylar foil bags. You will not get a seal that will hold. Those vacuum sealers are designed specifically for the CLEAR single layer plastic bags with a much lower melt-point.
