  1. I do not frequently use plastic wrap, but for those times I do, Glad Press'n Seal is the one I prefer. It's not much different if you're putting it directly on food to refrigerate or freeze, but its grippiness is amazing on containers. I recently ran through a roll I bought a few years ago, and had to go to around four different stores to find more. I thought perhaps it had been discontinued!

      I bought it once years ago, when it first came out. It was awful and I should have returned it rather than just throwing it out. It was nearly impossible to get off the roll. When I tried to seal a bowl with it - the ads showed it sticking to the rim - it didn't hold at all. Maybe I got a defective roll or they have improved the product.

        moisture is Press'n Seal's worst enemy, so if there was any on the rim of the bowl you didn't have a chance.

        i personally have a love/hate relationship with the stuff. sometimes i think its genius, other times it's a nuisance.

          I've never had a roll where it did not cling to the rim of a container of any material, and I find it much easier to tear off the roll (and not have it instantly ball up on itself) than conventional plastic wrap. Mileages may vary and all, but it's certainly possible you had a bad roll.

      2. OH my goodness do I agree! It'll stick to anything. Yes, sometimes it's a little tough to get it off the roll, but it more than makes up for it, being able to stick to aluminum and plastic bowls.

        Between that and 'release' reynolds wrap, I really don't know which one is the greatest invention!

        1. I tried it a long time ago and hated it. I could never get it off the roll even with scissors, it just started sticking to the scissors and what not.

            they must of changed things because it was super easy to peel off and has a parchment paper feel to it.
            loving the way it folds around food as a tent and its all sealed up!

          2. I use it to seal tins of homemade toffee that I give as gifts. I put is on, place the lid back on the tin and then cut the excess off with an Exacto knife. While homemade it gives a professional look. However as others have said moisture is its enemy.
