At first I was a little hesitate to buy green beans in a steam bag but overall I was pretty pleased with it. My only concern was that it was going to be to mushy after warming it up in the microwave but they turned out great. These actually make cooking easier and faster for me whenever I don't have time or running late to make dinner. I've also been using these to put in my salads, its a quick and easy. After warming it up you just cut the bag open and toss the green beans in your salad and voila.
