Found these Microwave Brown and Crisp Bags for my Dad.

Unread postby skipper68 » Thu Apr 03, 2014 1:58 pm

It seems like they could come in handy onboard also. Especially for reheating leftover Fries and Pizza Slices, you don't want soggy.
The reviews were really good for a 700 Watt.
Said fresh Burgers were quick, and it saves money, preheating the oven to 400 degrees for some other oven needs.
They were on Amazon, 30 medium and Large, for under $7.00
Pack Of 30 Microwave Oven ~ Brown and Crisp ~ Cooking Bags
by Brown and Crisp
Bake, broil, steam, fry and barbeque in your microwave oven! Now you can have oven delicious food in microwave time! The secret is in the bag. It's patented surface enables food to cook to perfection. Locks in natural juices and vitamins, and cooks with less fat, grease, and oil.

Reusable, fast and easy to use, cooks with less fat, easy to clean.

Size: Large Bags 10 1/2" X 8" Medium Bags 10 1/2 X 5 1/2
I read you can wipe them out and put them in the freezer for reuse. I really hope I can get my Dads Grocery bill down with these. Why pay a Dollar for a hand full of fries that have the microwave packaging, when he can get a years supply of them for $5.00?
It should keep the spatters down in it also.

Hmm. If they can save my wasted pizza and keep it crisp on reheats, that would indeed be a worth while item to keep in stock.

What is the difference between them and a regular paper bag? We pop popcorn is a regular paper bag instead of buying the prepackaged microwaveable popcorn.

Scal: The difference is that these bags are made by fine, bag-making craftsmen whom through generations of bag-making evolution, have developed the world's ultimate premium cooking bag, for your benefit and mine. :roll:

I also use the brown paper bag technique for popcorn. And I reuse the bags. Works fine. No salt or oil unless you want to salt it afterwards. I just put Butter Buds on it. Tastes fine.

It's hard not to make good popcorn... But bags do beat having to use the stove....
I was more thinking on how it does for food.......
Would be great to be able to reheat pizza that's crispy as opposed the soggy mess that comes out of the microwave now...

Im not impressed with them. Might just be the old Microwave- we just replaced it and I have not used them in it yet.To keep your pizza crust from getting soggy put a small glass of water in with it.
