Tesco Kitchen Foil
Advantages: Easy to use
Disadvantages: None really except for very sharp edge
Two items that I'm never without in my kitchen, one is cling film and the other is kitchen foil and as I tend to do the vast majority of my shopping in Tesco then it is the generic own brand that I go for as it is generally cheaper and better value than anything else on offer.
I like the fact that the Tesco range has a good amount of choice in terms of the length of the roll and also a couple of alternative width lengths as well, the extra wide version is particularly useful at Xmas when the turkey needs covering and to be able to use one complete piece is a real advantage. There are sizes from 10 and 20m in length and about 30cm in width and as I said there is a wider version but I'm not sure of the actual width but at least double the width of the normal one I reckon.
Tesco foil is well made and quite robust, it comes in a cardboard container and when you lift the flap there is a serated edge wich is rather sharp so you do have to be careful to ensure your fingers are kept out of the way, however the edge is certainly sharp enough to cut the foil and as it is tightly wound around a cardbaord tube you can get the length you need depending on what you need to cover or wrap.
The foil provides good insulation for wrapping joints once they are cooked and you want to keep the meat hot, I alos use it a lot on the bottom of my grill pan to reflect the heat back onto the meat and also to catch any fat that drips through making it easier to clean the grill pan after use.
I find that it does not stick to food if they have been wrapped inside to cook however it is advisable to add a little oil to ensure that this does not happen. Overall this is an affordable product that certainly does the job that I ask of it.
Summary: Good kitchen essential
