Wraptastic Dispenser Review
Anyone that spends enough time in the kitchen (yes, even those of us that spend most of that time microwaving our food) knows the importance of using plastic wrap or aluminum foil when cooking. So many recipes and baked items require a covering of plastic or foil. When you’re cooking, talking on the phone, and keeping the cat off the counter, sometimes you could use some help. Ever since I bought the Wraptastic I feel like I have an extra hand in the kitchen. It holds steady while I pull and cut away the wrap. That is just one of my favorite features.
- Keeps food fresher longer
- Holds steady as you wrap your food
- Easy to use with plastic wrap, aluminum foil, or wax
- Portable and small enough to be easily stored
- A smoother cut means less waste
- That fruitcake you got for Christmas will stay fresher
- Your neighbor will be over all the time borrowing it
The Wraptastic is a fun, every day product that can be used with any type of kitchen wrap. aluminum foil, plastic wrap, and even wax paper will fit in the Wraptastic with ease. The interchangeable feature makes for a smoother time in the kitchen. With the variety of wraps you can use with this product, your leftovers will be preserved longer and stay fresher longer. As you are wrapping your food, you can feel confident that the Wraptastic will not slip. The sturdy rubber grip keeps the product in tact on the counter while you pull. I pull with one hand all the time and the product stays firmly on the counter. Less anxiety in the kitchen is always a good thing!
The Wraptastic is spring loaded so any wrap can effortlessly pop in and out. This is perfect for changing wraps quickly. I like to wrap baked potatoes in foil when I bake them in the oven, but I loosely cover vegetables with plastic wrap when I microwave them. Having the ability to pop one wrap in and take another out is perfect for my cooking style. Another great feature is that the blade is covered so fingers are protected. This is reassuring because my children like to help me in the kitchen. Not needing to watch out for the safety of little fingers is a huge relief. I live in an apartment in the city, so my kitchen isn’t very big. Saying I don’t have a lot of storage space is an understatement, but the Wraptastic is small enough for me to store in any of my kitchen drawers. However, I use it so often that most of the time I just leave it out!
How it’s Used
The Wraptastic can be used every day as well as on special occasions. Between my kids and my husband, there are very few meals in our place that go without using the Wraptastic dispenser. The convenience and ease of the product make it my go-to kitchen item.
My husband likes it when we grill outside in the summer. The protective covering doesn’t get soggy or ripped like when we used to keep the wrap in the cardboard box from the store. The durability of the Wraptastic is helpful at busy family or corporate picnics where things tend to get tossed around. While I don’t recommend it, my husband left our Wraptastic out in the rain one July evening. It held up the next day when I took it inside. This product is built to last.
I have a Wraptastic that I keep in the basement for the kids crafts. The covered blade and steadiness make it easy for a child to use. It’s perfect for the wax paper we use during craft time. I recommended it to a school teacher friend of mine and she uses it in her class room for various projects. It definitely makes for easier clean up.
I enjoy the fact that with this product, I don’t always have to buy the expensive, name brand food wraps. The Wraptastic is so sturdy and the covered, recessed blade is so precise, that it makes even store brand wrap more efficient. I save so much money now. I have found I buy sandwich bags less because I use my Wraptastic more often. The kids sandwiches stay fresher by lunch when I wrap them in the morning using the Wraptastic.
You might find, as I have, that the family enjoys eating at home more often. The leftovers are more appealing when they are wrapped to stay fresh rather than in multiple mysterious plastic containers. I have recommended this product to friends and get compliments on it when people come over to my house. I highly suggest giving this product as a gift to anyone. It's fantastic!
