What Do You Wrap Food In?

Foil if it's gonna be reheated in the oven. Press 'n Seal, which is much better than any plastic wrap on the market, if it's the nuker. Usually reusable plastic containers. I hate tossing ziploc plastic bags, they are such a hazard to our wildlife, and no I'm no activist.

I am the suran wrap and Ziplock queen. Everything, and I mean everything goes in plastic. My mom is a foil queen and we have a bad habit of debating which is better. I only wrap things that need to stay warm in foil or for baking; other than that, I find it useless since you can't see what's inside without opening it.

it depends on what i have - there are somethings that i put in foil - and there are some that i'll put in tupperware. i usually like the tupperware angle since it's easily washable and reuseable...

Just about anything I get my hands on. A lot of the time my mom buys too many storage baggies and throws'm my way.. I prefer to separate my meats that way.. and my leftovers in tupperware bowls. I'll use just about anything though.

If it's going into the freezer, or if it is something that I am not going to use up soon, it gets Food Saver-ed. All other stuff usually gets the foil or cling wrap treatment

I've always just used dishes with foil over the top, but I just ordered a bunch of Tupperware (yes, it's expensive)and am looking forward to using. I also ordered Debbie Meyers green bags/boxes over the weekend to make my fruits and veggies last longer. I hope they work!

If it's going in the fridge, I either put the food on a plate and cover it with cling wrap. If it's going in the freezer, I cling wrap it first then wrap it in foil.

*Assuming Tupperware has become a catchall phrase for disposable plastic containers. I use the glad throwaways - Tupperware is way too expensive!

If it's going into the fridge, I usually put it in a bowl and wrap cling film on top. But for full wrapping, aluminum foil does a great job.

I wrap most things in aluminum foil. For some reason, I can't get the hang of cling wrap :shrug:

I put most of my food in tupperware. But I wrap my cheese in wax paper , and lemons in plastic wrap.
