They sent me a roll to review here but you can get your own free roll as well! Just go to the Reynolds Recycled web site and fill out the form. The only catch is you have to request it on Earth Day, April 22nd. But you can give them your email if you want a reminder.
The foil feels like regular foil. I’m so old I still call it tin foil, which my kids like to tease me about… but hey, if it’s all from recycled stuff that’s pretty cool. I haven’t compared the prices yet to the regular as I haven’t seen it in the stores but I will try to remember to do so and come back here and update. Still, at the least you can get your free roll!
Even the packaging is eco-friendly. From their web site:
- Food-safe foil made from a mix of pre and post consumer aluminum.
- The packaging and core are made from 100% recovered paper and the inks used on the product packaging are water-based.
My main use of foil is to line a pan that I’m going to freeze something in. Freeze it, pop the food (and foil liner) out and then wrap again in foil and put in a freezer bag or Food Saver it. When it’s time to cook, the food easily fits right back into your pan so you don’t need to keep the pan in the freezer the whole time.
And a great tip I just saw at their web site, which made me go “Duh!” To get the foil to fit the pan, put the pan upside down and fold the foil around the bottom, then flip the pan over and slide the shaped piece of foil right in.
A few of my favorites to make ahead and freeze in foil:
