Great for camping. Quick, simple and nourishing. Checked out the zip loc site re: toxicity of the bag. To be honest you would have to eat a lot of food, cooked in the bags to be affected. No BPA's or dioxin. I will still cook this way. If you can microwave in it, it's OK. Sometimes I think there is too much scaremongering about cooking methods and different foods.

PLEASE CHECK WITH THE MANUFACTURER OF YOUR PLASTIC BAGS TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE SUITABLE FOR COOKING FOODS (NO LEACHING OF PLASTICS WHEN HEATED).

We love to do this with large groups. Prep before you go and easy clean up. I recommend using small ziplock freezer bags. Trust me I'm speaking from experience. :)
