Tear on the dotted line _ _ _ _
It can't be done.Or can it, I'm talkin' about the frozen bags of vegetables, shrimp, chicken, You know what I mean. To open, Tear on the dotted line.I won't even begin to talk about the pain reliever capsules in those little bubbles. I would hate to be dying.
You are so right!
Yep Good kitchen shears are a MUST!!..
Can't help with the pain reliever container!
And I love the newer chip bags or cereal or crackers or other snacky type things that you tug and tug and tug on the bag until suddenly it bursts open and all your treats go flying.
Then...if there are any leftovers, when you roll the bag up, it unrolls itself. Is that so you will eat them all in one sitting so they won't go stale so you have to buy more? Or so you buy chip clips at the dollar store?
Closely related to this are the "handy" resealable packages. Except the ziplock seal often doesn't work and can be a pain to reopen. Especially if tearing on the dotted line has left you with not enough package above the seal.
I am convinced that freezing somehow alters the chemical composition of plastics and their ability to ziploc.
that said, I have never had any problem with the perforated variety of wraps and such. they rip right off.
We use a cellophane cutter made of plastic with a sharp end that is sold for opening CD's (which can be just as tricky). You glide the sharp tip across the bag right above the ziplock line. Works like a charm for about a buck.
