Depending on what kind of bag you are using you will have to play at how much you squeeze because at first while trying to do bread bags I was just tearing the plastic but after a few tries I had it down.
Bags for things like chips are super easy and I was really surprised by how well this little contraption sealed the bags. Love it my new favorite kitchen gadget. I love that this has a magnet on the back to keep it on the refrigerator when we need it.
You get two bag sealers, which each take 2 AA batteries which are not included. This only works when pressed together somewhat like a stapler, and has a little switch that covers the sealing bar when not in use.
You can find these bag sealers on Amazon.
