Help, help, help. Can no longer use my favorite foil dispenser.

Suzin Oct 26, 2013 02:46 PM

The makers of Reynolds Wrap have recently reduced the diameter of the cardboard core around which the foil is wrapped. I have used a special dispenser for both my plastic wrap and my foil for years. I am lost now that the foil doesn't fit my dispenser. Does ANYONE know where I might find some of the old boxes? I'm too old to change my MO.

    You might try store brands. They could be slower to change their packaging.

      What size were you buying? Perhaps a longer roll uses the larger diameter core.

        Nope...they have decreased all sizes. I see their point....the box is smaller but I don' t care about the box because I use a dispenser., or I would like to continue to use my dispenser. Wished they has surveyed consumers. I can't be the only one wanting t o continue to use my WRAP MASTER.

        The instructions on the Wrapmaster website state that if the cardboard core is too small for the grey adaptors, just use the orange end caps. Does that sound like your dispenser?

        I don't have a Wrapmaster, but it sounds like they've built some allowances in for different size cardboard tubes? I wonder if, given the industry changes, they will be considering some sort of smaller adapter fitting that you could purchase? Good luck, I know what it's like when a favorite gadget is rendered unusable!

          Thank you, thank you, thank you. I never thought to go to WRAPMASTER for an answer.

          To follow up on tacosandbeer's suggestion, perhaps these adjustable end caps would solve the problem?:
