Aluminium Household Foil is available in a variety of formats. In addition to a range of widths and lengths there are textured versions and ready-cut sheets, making it easy to use without unreeling and tearing. ‘Non-stick’ foil can solve many problems, such as baked-on food. Another special foil is black on one side, which transfers radiant heat more efficiently from the black side, making it ideal for roasting.
Most Aluminium Household Foil are used to having aluminium foil in the home. It has become an essential part of modern household convenience – for cooking, reducing cleaning chores in the kitchen and for its many uses around the home, garden or workshop. In commercial kitchens too – restaurants, canteens, schools and hospitals, etc.
Aluminium foil’s total barrier to light, steam, aromas and liquids is a major reason for its use in the kitchen. The same properties can be used to stop evaporation and drying of paint, adhesives and fillers used in home decoration. Also it can deal with the highest temperatures encountered in cooking, whether in a convection oven or under the hottest grill. Another great advantage when used in the kitchen is the ‘deadfold’ characteristic of aluminium foil. Once folded around a joint of meat, or crimped onto the top of a casserole or storage pot, the aluminium foil stays folded and does not spring back.
