The valved bags I reuse are the sort with a ziploc seal (like the ones Tom sells
at SM). They seal great and I can reuse them over and over. No heat sealer
required. I havene't retired one yet. The ziploc bags containing the coffee
keep the valved bags clean.
I'm not sure this list has been clear about the point that a valve bag is
only a valve bag the first time you buy it from a store. The bag has to be
sealed by a heat sealer to be a valve bag. If you re-use it, it is only a
bag of beans. You might as well use a brown coffee bag that you roll up and
use the metal tie to crimp over."
