I just finished a web search on this and found a web site,, that has bags INTENDED for boiling food safely. The are BPA free and used in commercial kitchens all over the world. Might be worth it to check them out.

Is that site for real? They list a phony contact phone number (800-555-1212), and you can't look at their products and prices without first creating an account and logging in. If I do start to create an account, I get a warning about an invalid security certificate. Since I didn't finish creating an account (and I'm not going to), I'm not even sure you get to see products/prices after that.

Cabela's makes vacuum seal FoodSaver bags that can be boiled. Of course, you need a vacuum sealer to use them. Just saying.

Is there a formula for how long to boil frozen foods? For example pre-cooked lasagna weighs X pounds and is 2" thick? 3" thick?

I have a BakePacker, and one of their suggestions was to use the oven baking bags.

If you think about this, this should make sense. Baking a turkey releases boiling juices - so the plastic on that bag should be formulated to be able to be immersed in boiling water without problems, as well as handle temperatures well higher than boiling water.

But they are pretty large unless you can find one sized for just a chicken.
