Good Idea Rick , but please allow me to suggest to put the bag to be emptied of air between 2 water bags , that way the air on the bottom crevices
will be emptied as well

The Sous Vide water heater I bought cost me $75 and was well worth it. The killer is the vacuum sealer. It is easy to drop over $100 on such a machine. The lower cost sealers can use bags that cost as much as $1 each. A far more economical path is to use Ziploc Freezer bags. The challenge is to remove most of the air.
This article presents the two most common methods of removing most of the air from the bag and then offers a third way that addresses problems I have had with these methods.
