Bacofoil Giveaway

While the kids have celebrated the start of the summer holidays, and us parents have looked forward to the stressfree mornings of the school runs and looking forward to our lazy carefree morning routines.  I have been working with companies to make the transition back to school easier for all of us, and I have a lovely new giveaway with Bacofoil.

We all know the traumas of packed lunches, things spill or leak or they do not eat everything and just chuck it back in their bags or lunch boxes.

Bacofoil Zipper Bags are great for any storage needs they have a zipper seal to lock in freshness and stop leaks.  Great for food storage or freezing.

They come in two size

  • Small – 15 bags which hold 1L
  • Medium – 12 bags which hold 3L

Non Stick Kitchen Foil we all use kitchen foil whether we use it for keeping food fresh or for when we are cooking.  I have lost count of the times I have used foil, especially for quickness and ease of cleaning my trays, and the food has stuck and you spend ages trying to gently remove the food without bring the foil with you, and then the trays get filthy due to the holes.  Or we grease the foil to stop this happening.

Bacofoil Non Stick Foil is great for any busy home, as you do not have to pre-grease, food does not stick which means less cleaning a definite win-win for any busy parent.

Bacofoil are making back to school a little easier for 5 of my readers by giving 5 of you the chance to win a pack of the zipper bags and kitchen foil.  To enter see below

Good luck

    Nothing really except the freezer bags getting stuck together when i froze meat and they ripped apart when i tried to get to the meat i wanted

    • 5th August 2018 / 1:37 pm

      That has happened to me loads of times x

    When trying to save money I stupidly bought some cheap freezer bags. My husband likes making Stilton and broccoli soup and made a big batch one time. He carefully waited until it had cooled and put it in the freezer. Hours later I opened the freezer to find several of the bags had split and their contents covered the other frozen food in the drawer. We always buy good quality bags now!

    • 5th August 2018 / 3:20 pm

      I have tried to economise and use cheaper freezer bags, but end up using two as always worried they will split, which defeats the point of buying cheaper x

    I sent my daughter to school once with frozen fruit in a bag that would be defrosted by lunchtime, except there was a hole in the bag and it leaked everywhere in her school bag! Bad Mum! lol

    • 5th August 2018 / 3:19 pm

      Oh no, I have not done that but have had a few disasters x

    I once gave my daughter a plastic bag to be sick in whilst travelling by car – she was sick in it but it sprung a leak so it spurted everwhere! Yuk!

    • 5th August 2018 / 4:28 pm

      Oh no 🙁

    The only thing that’s happened is I’ve covered a casserole in foil, taken it to work, and it’s leaked…

    I once used a bacofoil zipper bag to carry grapes to work..when I got on the bus what did I forget I had in my hand when I sat down ..yes the bag of grapes..which I had put on the seat first and then I had crushed grapes..oopps

    • 6th August 2018 / 10:11 am

      I now have Stu Francis (think that is his name) going through my head saying ‘Oooh I could crush a grape’

    I was a bit clumsy cutting the tin foil and ended up cutting my thumb

    Bacon foil products are the best with very little mess

  18. Sue McCarthy
    6th August 2018 / 7:50 am

    No messy disasters that I recall. Although with the cheap bags you have to be careful tearing them off the roll or they just rip a hole in the bottom of the bag!

    Too hot sauce into bag

  20. 6th August 2018 / 10:41 am

    I have a bad habit of forgetting which way the foil goes onto the tray and end up putting it on wrong meaning all my food then sticks to it – oops x

    • 6th August 2018 / 5:11 pm

      The problem I have with this is, if I think about it I always put it the wrong way, if I don’t think about it I just do it the right way automatically x

  21. Tracy Gladman
    6th August 2018 / 1:42 pm

    I’ve had the food stick to the bag in the freezer and then plastic bags are embedded in the food!

    • 6th August 2018 / 5:10 pm

      I have lost count of the times this has happened to me over the years x

  22. Sally Collingwood

    I always wrap my packed lunch in foil and one day an orange fell out into the bottom of my bag, you can imagine what I found months later!!!

    I ran out of nappy bags so had to use a supermarket own brand Ziplock bag to keep hold of the nappy until I could bin it, it was poor quality and the said nappy ‘liquids’ leaked out 😫😂

    • 6th August 2018 / 5:09 pm

      Oh no 🙁

    Gave my son some ingredients for cookery at school in freezer bags, should have checked first as they had air holes in them! Thankfully I put the bags in a tub 😱

    once had a chicken in a bag cooking in the oven and it exploded! what a mess

    • 7th August 2018 / 9:49 pm

      I have never cooked a chicken in a bag before, think I have always been worried about that happening to me x

  28. Laura Banks
    6th August 2018 / 8:36 pm

    for some bizarre reason years ago i was dying my boyfriends and his mates hair blonde they seemed to think that putting tinfoli on there heads would enhance it all they managed to do was look like a pai of aliens and no it actually made their hair worse

    • 7th August 2018 / 9:48 pm

      oh dear lol bet they never tried that again x

  29. Carol Thomas

    Made armpit fudge in a heat wave . ended up with bags of what looked like runny dog poo apparently!

    • 7th August 2018 / 9:47 pm

      That must have looked lovely, I would have put it in the fridge to see if it set into nice shapes x

    I made a rhubarb crumble at a cooking group a few months ago and on the way home all the rhubarb goo leaked out and filled my bag. Everything was rhubarby.

    • 7th August 2018 / 9:46 pm

      Oh no 🙁

    8th August 2018 / 9:10 pm

    I’m afraid I haven’t got any stories to tell. I do love bacofoil though, so perhaps that’s why I’ve not had any problems. Thanks for this lovely giveaway.

    Once ran out of baking paper so I thought id use tin foil for my flapjacks! No me best idea, they all stuck, was terrible never again x

  39. Ruth Harwood
    12th August 2018 / 5:15 am

    I’ve fallen down the stairs and landed feet first in the cats litter tray before now, I’ve also spilt the bin bag all over the kitchen floor, not sure either was amusing to me, but watching me hop up the stairs to wadh my foot in the bath may have been amusing to watch!

  40. Rebecca Sutton
    12th August 2018 / 10:00 pm

    i made a whole roast dinner once, put foil at the bottom of the tray, and the foil was stuck to the joint of gammon, had to take the bits of foil off bit by bit, it was all in tiny little pieces once i ripped it off!

  41. Carolyn E
    13th August 2018 / 7:54 am

    Not a cooking disaster, but……I was told if I wrapped things in foil, the X-ray machine at the airport would see beyond the bacofoil. It’s true…possibly……but I then mounded the foil around my ‘contraband’ so it still looked the same shape! Yes I was younger then, but I was also an idiot! My contraband was a sounvenir Buddha from Thailand.

  42. Marie Evans
    15th August 2018 / 10:32 am

    The only problem I can remember is i run out of zipper type bags & i hadnt got much room in the frezzer so a bag of fish fingers i transferred to a smaller bag ,But the bag spilt & everything i took out that drawer had breadcrumbs on them including the ice cubes tray.lol

  43. Carole Nott
    15th August 2018 / 5:07 pm

    Sorry no disaster stories – i usually have good results with Bacofoil products

    I used some cheap freezer bags to freeze up a load of tomato sauce that I use for pasta – they were useless and a couple broke and I had to clean up the sauce from all over the floor before I even got them to the freezer – such a waste!

  45. Tina H
    16th August 2018 / 2:11 pm

    I’ve used cheap tinfoil to wrap my sarnies in and it always tore.

  46. Judith Allen
    17th August 2018 / 6:12 pm

    No disasters to share, but tinfoil is really useful for cheap fancy dress. Remember when when the film Signs came out? We went to a friend’s Halloween party wearing tinfoil hats, and my daughter went to the door first and asked for a drink of water. Was funny when my partner went to the shop, still in tinfoil hat, and they hadn’t seen the film. They thought she was bonkers.

    Definitely no problem with Bacofoil, but thought that roasting a chicken in a bag was a great idea – Never again. Bought one and nooooooooooo! Not only had all the skin stuck to the bag, but the meat was dry and the bag had melted in other areas too. My neighbours thought that Captain Caveman had popped ’round for Sunday lunch!

  48. claire griffiths
    18th August 2018 / 11:39 am

    the only disaster i have had is cheap foil sticking to the food and your forever picking off bits of foil

  49. caroline watson

    Didn’t use foil and had sandwiches squashed and very unappealing in my son’s lunch box

    I am a leaking old bag especially if I do an unexpected sneeze sometime. lol

  51. Jodie W
    19th August 2018 / 9:56 pm

    I learnt a lesson about using cheap freezer bags when freezing soup – when it defrosted most of the contents defrosted onto the worktop – it didnt hold the contents inside very well at all.

  52. Amanda Richardson
    20th August 2018 / 9:54 pm

    Double wrapped some Basa Fillets in bacofoil with a little white wine to cook on the BBQ, disaster the wine leaked out and the fish burnt onto the foil, not much left that was edible!!

  53. Hazel Rea

    I portioned up some strawberries and put them in bags. Got one out to eat one day and discovered rather too late that there was a strawberry sized hole in the bottom! I’d left a lovely trail of strawberries….the dog was happy :-\

    The only disaster I have had with Bacofoil is when the sink leaked and it all got wet. I don’t keep it under the sink anymore!

    My mum dropped a glass caserole dish out the oven on her foot on Boxing day. The food went all over the floor and there was blood and glass everywhere! Luckily I hadn’t had any alcohol, so we had to go to A&E!

    One leak disaster from school cookery badly wrapped in foil and stuffed into a school rucksack for the day. The cookery creation leaked all over the school books.

    i once wrapped a sandwich in foil and my dog gt it out of my bag and ate it, with the foil still on!

  62. Victoria Easton
    25th August 2018 / 12:57 pm

    Frozen lots of pieces of quiche in individual bags – OK until – they all froze together, so when I wanted one, I had a large lump with lots of pieces of plastic in it – never again!!

    I have never had any disasters with tinned foil. I find the zipper bags so useful for storing all the fruit and veg i grow on my allotment and i always line my grill pan rack with foil which makes it easier to clean.

  65. Charlotte Hoskins
    25th August 2018 / 3:16 pm

    I’ve bought cheap foil before, lined the bottom of the grill pan with it and when I’ve come to remove it, it is completely stuck 🙁

  66. olivia Kirby
    25th August 2018 / 5:52 pm

    No funny stories. I do find that if you use the really cheap foil you end up peeling it off what you cook, and it’s unsuitable for freezing as it just disintegrates.

  67. Tracy B
    25th August 2018 / 6:01 pm

    Trying to be clever, using tin foil instead of greaseproof paper. It stuck fast as I had to spend best part of half an hour peeling foil off the bottom!

  68. caroline watson
    25th August 2018 / 7:03 pm

    yougurt all over my lunch box now i always put my yougurt in a ziploc bag!

  69. 25th August 2018 / 7:58 pm

    I opened up my bag and spilt my whole sandwich as my foil ripped

  70. Samantha Atherton
    25th August 2018 / 9:33 pm

    I was having family round for Sunday dinner, thought I was being smart and lined a tray with foil to cook the roasties on so it would be easier to clean up afterwards but instead the foil stuck to the potatoes and we spent the afternoon peeling the it off.

    I buy meat packs in bulk from my butcher and separate into individual meals, I tend to use the cheaper bags and double up – which defeats the object of the purchase – never tried the bacofoil bags, and not sure if I’ve seen them in my supermarket. The cheaper bags tend to spilt, and if I freeze fish in them the freezer will smell – so the thicker bags would be better for this food too.

  76. RUTH ROBERTS
    26th August 2018 / 10:42 am

    More of an embarassing story, I was in Asda with my then toddler daughter and she was being lets say a handfull sreaming and having a tantrum so I decided to leave my shopping and go. I made a sharp exit, but as i went for the door the security guard stopped me!! My daughter must have grabbed a pack of tin foil because it was tucked in beside her!! Luckily the security guard believed my story but I’m not sure the crowd who had gathered did!!

    I poured hot sauce into a freezer bag and it went straight through the plastic and all over the floor

  78. Carrie Turner
    26th August 2018 / 12:26 pm

    Luckily no big disasters but when I used an inferior brand of foil it ran out way before I thought it should so I couldn’t cover my roast chicken.

  79. Jeanette Leighton

    I wanted to make a sensory bag for my son with gel and sequins and buttons etc in only i bought cheap food bags, over filled them and underestimated my sons strength and he popped it and the gel mixture went all over my floor

  83. 26th August 2018 / 5:03 pm

    I once tried a trick to make omelette with a sandwich bag once where you put everything inside the bag shake it up and then cook it but I shook the bag and it split! There was egg EVERYWHERE lol! Safe to say I just stuck to mixing it up in a bowl since.

  84. Anthea Holloway
    26th August 2018 / 5:59 pm

    I wash some tinfoil and hung it on the line but it blew away!

    only disaster is when i never have enough foil at the end of the roll

  86. Kate Davies
    26th August 2018 / 7:36 pm

    I cooked some salmon in foil parcels but the sauce leaked out and some how fused the foil to the tray, that was fun trying to remove.

  87. Catherine Bullas
    26th August 2018 / 8:03 pm

    Nothing really apart from my 18 month old unravelling a whole role of foil.

  88. Emma Beckett
    26th August 2018 / 8:26 pm

    I thought I had fully sealed the meat in foil when transporting in my car, little did I know I hadn’t and ended up with meat juices all over my passenger seat!

    When I was in primary school my mum accidentally put a block of cheese wrapped in foil in my packed lunch instead of my sandwiches! I didn’t even like cheese! My friends and the dinner ladies thought it was hilarious

    I put some tinfoil on top of a cake in the oven, as it was starting to burn around the edges. I’ve done this quite a few times but this time I managed to get little pieces of tinfoil incorporated into the cake- yum!

  93. Tee Simpson
    26th August 2018 / 11:02 pm

    Bags always pop on me. The worst is when I put fruit in bags for the kids and forget about it. When I remeber its all squashed and leaking in my bag
