Sous Vide Bags - Any brand safe?

I buy my food saver bags on ebay at a great price. I only use them for freezing meat in. I don't have a sous vide machine yet, but was wondering if you can use any brand food saver type bag since you will be cooking with them and getting them up to higher temps?

    If I recall food saver says you can use their bags for reheating left overs by placing in boiling water.

    All to get cheaper brisket! 
  • Food savers are safe to over 200. Ziplocks to 170. I think all brands of sealer bags are safe.

    Yeah, and you always cook sous vide at lower temperatures than boiling water, so should be no worries.

    My home made prototype for a larger one....

    Yes, that's a seriously cool set up. Certainly doesn't look homemade more like a prototype for a company. Really amazing job!
