Is Reynolds Wrap® Made in the USA?

What side of the foil should I use, shiny or dull?
With standard and heavy duty foil, it’s perfectly fine to place your food on either side so you can decide if you prefer to have the shiny or dull side facing out.
Is aluminum foil recyclable?
Yes, aluminum foil can be recycled. However, every community’s recycling program is unique, so be sure to check if aluminum foil is accepted by your local government or recycling provider Find information about facilities near you.
When should I use Heavy Duty Foil vs. Standard Foil?
Both Reynolds® Heavy Duty and Standard Foil have excellent strength and can be used in a variety of situations.
Standard gauge foil does a great job when lining and covering 13”x9” or smaller pans, for wrapping sandwiches and other light items, and for making small packets for oven cooking.
Heavy Duty foil should be used when extra sturdiness is needed. Some examples include handling food during prep, cooking, or storage such as lining grills or broiler pans, and for making multiple serving size packets for the grill or oven. This kind of foil also offers extra protection from freezer burn when wrapping foods for freezer storage.
