Sorry to hear of your frustrations, but I really wish you would have done what I try to tell people. That is, if your first sealing attempt failed then instead of wasting all your bag supply just use that first bag repeatedly to learn how to seal one! I must have used my first bag sealing it and then cutting it open again and again 6 or 7 times initially within 30 minutes until I got the hang of it and how my Food Saver would work. Actually what you did at the end was nearly the simplest…that is put the meat in the bag, gather the bag neck together, squeeze out as much air as you can and then stick a straw in the gathered end and suck out the remaining air. Then grip tight and seal the bag with a bread twisty! A perfect vacuum is not necessary.
