Asda Kitchen Foil
Advantages: medium strength, keeps food fresh, cheap
Disadvantages: not as thick and durable as more expensive brands
Tin foil is a staple product in my kitchen that I simply could not do without. I use it for so many things from wrapping sandwiches, wrapping up food for the next day to keep it fresh, to using it to cook things on in the oven.
This particular tinfoil costs around £1.30 from asda, which is quite a cheap price. It comes in a box which opens to reveal a perforated edge to make it easier to tear your tin foil. I find that it is quite difficult to get a good clean tear from this box - but then I have found that with all tin foil boxes no matter how much I have paid.
The tin foil itself is medium strength I would say, and is very decent for the price. More expensive brands such as Baco Foil are definitely thicker and more durable, but these tend to be above the £2 mark - which to me is a lot of money for foil. Foil is not something I find particularly exciting to spend my money on, if Baco Foil or a more expensive brand is on offer though I would normally go for one of those over a cheaper brand of foil. As I said earlier this foil is medium in thickness and strength, I have bought asda smartprice and tesco everyday value foils before and have just found them impossible to work with. They tear too easily when doing the simplist of things such as wrapping sandwiches, and I have found that after using it to cook food on in the oven the food tends to come out with bits of foil stuck to it - but I have never experienced that problem with this foil.
I found that food I wrap with this foil stays nice and fresh throughout the day for sandwiches and overnight for food that I am saving for the next day. Overall I would definitely recommend this foil to those who are looking for a cheaper alternative. Foil is one of those products that I MUST have, so any cheaper alternatives are welcome by me!
Summary: a good budget foil!
