All Plastic Bags Are Not Created Equal

When buying zip-top bags for freezing, don't skimp on quality. Quality applies in two areas: thickness of the bag and quality of the closure device. If the manufacturer does not specify thickness, you will have to go by feel. Don't use bags with the slider closure as they can more easily leak air, leading to freezer burn.
