“I use these Baggy Racks any time I make a big batch of something and want to bag it in smaller portions for the freezer. They hold up to spaghetti sauce, soup, cookie dough, freshly picked berries – you name it!

They hold the bags open nice and wide, making it so easy to neatly fill them without making a mess. The adjustable arms for different bag sizes are absolutely genius, making these a really versatile little kitchen gadget.” – Jenna at Hip2Save

Still on the fence? Here’s what another reviewer said about Baggy Racks:

“I do a lot of freezer meals so dinners are ready when my husband and I get home from work. These holders do exactly what I want them to – hold the bag open so I can dump food in. The bag to the far left is my jambalaya and you can see that it’s nearly full of chicken, sausage, and liquids. It stays where it’s supposed to and doesn’t slip a single bit.

It is height adjustable, too, which would be really handy for smaller items and especially for pouring or scooping things into. Plus, it folds flat (minus the round base) which makes for very easy drawer storage.” – Kathy

    There are several companies that offer these at a lower price. They look identical. Has anyone tried any of these?

    • Blue

      I have these. They are just ok. I do a lot of freezing of veggies from my garden & thought they would speed up the process. I have the bags filled by the time it takes to place them in the holders & get them adjusted to stand open. I do my freezer meals in stackable containers, so haven’t used them for that either. They are just another gadget to fill up draw space IMO.

      • Shelia

        Thank you! Same here, I was hoping they would speed up the process. I’ll just keep on doing it the way I’ve always done it.

    My daughter just uses a cup or a bowl to line the baggie over. Voila. This gadget reminds me of a banana holder or a bagel slicer. Interesting but just extra stuff.

    • Cristine

      That’s what I do! Saw it on a cooking show many years ago and have been doing it ever since.

  3. tobey

    I want the bag meal recipes. Haha

  4. Krissy

    These are cool! Another option would be to use a large cup, put the bag inside, and fold the top of the bag over the rim of the cup. This method will keep the top of your baggies clean! For gallon size bags, I use old Disney popcorn buckets or something of similar size.

    • Carissa

      Totally what I do too.

  5. AJ

    Have it and love it!!

  6. EP

    I just fold the bag tops over, flip them back and zip when they’re full. That also helps keep raw meat from touching the bag near the seal.

  7. Debbie H.

    Same here. Large cup or bowl to steady the bag, fold top of bag over rim. One less plastic gadget to store.

  8. clemsonspalding

    A must have for me. Love mine

    I have these and love them. I use them for freezing sweet corn. We do this in an entire day so we freeze 70-100 bags depending on size. With the freezing process having these bag set up and ready to fill speeds up the process as well as hands. It’s all preference but for me they are totally worth it.

  10. Sue P

    I own this and do find it helpful, however, mine no longer stays in position on one side which is frustrating. Kind of fragile.

  11. Tracey

    I make my husband hold them open hahah!
