sealing bag of chips with heat sealer

Looking for a smart way to seal chip and snack bags? This product is genius!

Stale chips are the worst! Check out this innovative kitchen tool I bought that seals the ends of snack and food packaging back together so it’ll extend the life of your food and avoids waste. If your family is anything like mine, constantly opening food and then also leaving it open in the pantry 🤪 – this is such a smart solution.

Nope, this isn’t a hair straightener!

The Karidge mini handheld bag sealer is available via Amazon.com, and is a highly rated kitchen tool that’ll keep snacks fresh! Plus, I have to admit, the inner neat freak in me loves that it helps store snacks in a tidy looking way compared to a bulky chip clip. 🤗

How to Use:

It’s so simple! Plug in the bag sealer and let it heat up for about 30 seconds, and then press down going along the edges of the bag for a second or so and it will slightly melt the ends together. Easy peasy!

Reasons I LOVE this handheld heat sealer:

    • Prevents foods from going stale, which saves money and waste.
    • This heat sealer works on a variety of plastic bags, snack bags, and cellophane bags.
    • It heats up quickly and is very easy to use.
    • Storing is easy because the product is lightweight and small. It comes with a handy storage case, too.

This idea isn’t just for chips!

I’ve been going through the pantry sealing all my smaller open bags of cooking spices, nuts, chocolate chips, specialty flours, and anything I usually fold and clip to avoid spills. This is such a smart way to keep all these things neat and sealed.

Plus, it’s actually so satisfying to watch too – so now I want to seal all the things! 🤗

    This looks just like the iron they are selling at the 99 cent store for 3.99 funny.. Same case and all …flat iron and curling iron

      I was just thinking that this looks like the heat sealer I bought at a $0.99 store, back in the 1990’s. We all long for the good ol’ days, back when everything was cheaper. I bet, the same heat sealer was a nickel, back in the 1950’s – LOL

    Also if you have a food saver you can do this too…. I always forget lol. Thanks for the reminder.

    • MaaMaaBear

      You can do this with a food saver??? I had no idea!!!

      • Sue

        Looks like a hair flat iron, that probably works too.

    How does it work when u try to open bag back up?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You can pull it open again or cut it.

    I have this and love it. We have went from a family of 7 down to 2 and it is hard to adjust to shopping and cooking in smaller quantities so use this all the time.

    I use my food-saver for this. It works great!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Perfect- Thanks for the tip! 🙂

    We also use our Foodsaver at home for this daily, but I’m going to pick up one of these for our camper. Thanks!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      oh neat idea- thanks Lauren!

    Does the bag really pull apart? I used a smaller hand held heat sealer on bags and I had to cut them each time I wanted to open them, which made the bag smaller each time you opened it, not good if you open it every day. I just use a chip clip on my bags, easier than dragging something out of the drawer every time.
