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. The food has stuck and you spend ages trying to gently remove the food without bring the foil with you. 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

    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!

    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’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!

    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!

  • Carolyn E 8 months ago Reply

    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.

    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

    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!

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

  • Judith Allen 8 months ago Reply

    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.

  • LOUISE HEATON 8 months ago Reply

    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!

    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.

  • Charlotte Hoskins 8 months ago Reply

    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 🙁

  • olivia Kirby 8 months ago Reply

    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.

  • Tracy B 8 months ago Reply

    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!

  • jacqui graham 8 months ago Reply

    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.

  • RUTH ROBERTS 8 months ago Reply

    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!!
