Product Details

  • Grilling meats like ribs
  • Making foil packets to lock in moisture and flavor
  • Lining grill grates and roasting pans
  • Freezing meals and storing leftovers

Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil, made in the USA, offers extra protection against both high heat and freezing cold. Heavy Duty Foil is also available in a wider 18 inch roll, making it perfect for use on the grill, covering or lining larger roasting pans or making larger foil packets.

As with all Reynolds Wrap® foil products, we make prepping, cooking and cleanup easier so you can spend more time with family.

Product Faqs


Is Reynolds Wrap® Made in the USA?


Yes, Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil is made in the USA. Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil is 98.5% aluminum. The balance is made up of other elements: primarily iron and silicon. These are added to give the strength and puncture resistance obtained only in the alloy used in Reynolds Wrap® household foil. Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil fully complies with U.S. Food and Drug Administration requirements for direct contact with food.


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.


What is the difference between the shiny and dull sides?


This is a common question and the answer is that the foil is “milled” in layers during production. Milling is a process whereby heat and tension is applied to stretch the foil to the desired thickness. We mill two layers in contact with each other at the same time, because if we didn’t, the foil would break during the milling process. Where the foil is in contact with another layer, that’s the “dull” side. The “shiny” side is the side milled without being in contact with another sheet of metal. The performance of the foil is the same, whichever side you use.


When should I use Heavy Duty Foil vs. Standard Foil?


Both Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty and Standard Foil have excellent strength and can be used in a variety of situations. Standard 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.


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.
