I'd watch for the thickness. The regular is fairly thin and I can only imagine this will be even thinner. Bottom line is you may 2-3x what you normally would so the savings is actually nil.

7. Is Reynolds Wrap Foil from 100% Recycled Aluminum the same as the original Reynolds Wrap Foil?

Reynolds Wrap® Foil from 100% Recycled Aluminum has the strength and durability you've come to expect from the Reynolds brand.

They have cheapened the products by making them thinner. Even the heavy duty stuff is nowhere near the thickness that it used to be and therefore you need to use more to get the same coverage/protection as before. I can't speak for the Reynold's brand as the HD roll is really expensive($100+ at GFS) and I use too much for catering and comps. I use the Baker & Chef's from Sams...the heavy duty stuff.

The bottom box is for plastic wrap...
I'll take one each of the dispenser boxes. Did you make them or buy them?
