Thread: OT aluminum foil/plastic wrap

    Default OT aluminum foil/plastic wrap


    I just learned this on another group and thought all you foodies would
    be interested if you don't already know...I didn't.

    Do you know that aluminum foil and plastic wrap have little push-in tabs
    on the end of the box to keep the roll in the box?
    I don't know how long they've been there, but you would think they would
    have been on some of their endless commercials before now. I have
    called those rolls and their boxes ugly names for years.

    Who knew?

    The tabs don't work. I push a screw threaded metal rod thro' the
    box and fasten it with a wing nut. Cost me about a buck and I've
    been using it for years.

    I have another question: is the position of the tear strip
    patented? Right next the roll on the box works for me but some
    manufacturers put it on the lid or else on the bottom of the
    box.

    Don't know about your question, but the last time I bought plastic
    wrap, it was at Cash n Carry (Smart & Final in other areas). Instead
    of a metal cutter, it has sandpaper on the edge to cut with- I love
    it! I'd better, because it will probably last me about another year!!
