Aluminum foil cost = aluminum foil weight * (aluminum ingot price + aluminum foil processing fee)

According to the needs of customers, custom aluminum foil rolls, the cost of each material is different, and special calculation is required

In general, aluminum foil roll price = aluminum foil price + packaging cost + material cost (such as paper tube, plastic holder, metal cutter) + labor site cost + transportation cost (optional)

Why do the quotes I receive vary widely?

The cost of aluminum foil is almost transparent. Xienuo's quotation is composed of the actual cost and very little profit. We strictly follow the customer's needs and customize the production completely according to the size provided by the customer without cutting corners.ensure that the quality of aluminum foil rolls meets the testing requirements of SGS and FDA, and ensure that the net weight of aluminum foil has almost no tolerance (within 1%).

When the quotations you receive differ greatly, please confirm whether the net weight of the aluminum foil (excluding the weight of the paper tube) is the same. The most important factor in the quotation of aluminum foil is not the area of aluminum foil, nor the length or width of aluminum foil.

Xienuo's official quotation will list the cost of each item, so that customers can understand what our costs are.

How to choose aluminum foil

The thickness of the aluminum foil is related to the usage scenario. Different scenarios need to withstand different pressures, temperatures and weights, so the thickness is also different. Xienuo can custom produce household aluminum foil in different thicknesses, both length and width are optional.

Aluminum foil for grilling BBQ

  • Thickness: 0.02-0.03 mm
  • Application: In the kitchen or outdoors, for ovens, grills, for baking and cooking food
  • Applicable scenarios: grill, oven, microwave oven, rice cooker, freezer, refrigerator, etc.

Aluminum foil for baking and heating

Thickness: 0.01-0.018mm

Application: In the kitchen, it is used to pack food or other items, and can be used with air fryer and microwave oven to heat food

Applicable scenarios: air fryer, microwave oven, rice cooker, etc.

Aluminum foil for food preservation and freezing

Thickness: 0.009-0.015mm

Application: In the kitchen, used to pack food or other items to keep them fresh and prevent damage, also can be used to heat food

Applicable scene: freezer, refrigerator, use at room temperature


Is cooking with aluminum foil safe?

Yes, it is generally safe to cook with aluminum foil. However, it is important to use the foil properly and not to overuse it. When aluminum foil is heated, small amounts of aluminum can leach into the food, but the amount is considered safe by the World Health Organization.

Food grade aluminum foil

The raw materials of aluminum foil used by Xienuo are all food-grade aluminum foil, with a smooth surface, no burrs on the edges, and no harmful substances. Our aluminum foil paper has passed SGS and FDA testing and certification, ensuring safe use.

Non-stick neat and easy to clean

Household aluminum foil paper is non-stick, which can effectively prevent oil stains and help you solve the trouble of cleaning kitchen utensils or tableware.

Easy to tear and use

Xienuo's household aluminum foil paper rolls all include a metal cutter (except those without a color box), which tear neatly and beautifully, and are ready to use in a busy kitchen.

Versatile and recyclable

Household aluminum foil paper can be recycled and is friendly to the environment. It can be used for heat insulation, heating, moisture-proof, fresh-keeping, barbecue, etc. of food, and has a wide range of uses.

Which side of the aluminum foil should touch the food?

Household aluminum foil has two sides, one side is very shiny, and the other side is matte, so, how to use aluminum foil the right way?

Many people think that both sides are the same when using tin foil for the first time, and it doesn’t matter if you use it casually, but this is not the case.

When using tin foil, be aware that the matte side is for food contact, which means the matte side of the foil is non-stick.

If the food is wrapped with the shiny side, it is easy for the food to stick to the aluminum foil.

What is the difference between aluminum foil and wrap?

Aluminum foil and plastic cling film are both used to wrap food, and both can be used to prevent moisture, preserve freshness, etc. However, using aluminum foil to wrap food can be used for heating, barbecuing, and cooking.

Plastic cling film is more convenient and economical than aluminum foil. The purpose of wrapping food is to keep it fresh and moisture-proof. Plastic cling film cannot be used for cooking food like aluminum foil.

Can you put aluminum foil in a microwave?

You can put aluminum foil in the microwave along with your food and heat the food, but experts don't recommend this

First, aluminum foil is a thin metal that radio waves can penetrate, heating food. But aluminum foil is also metal, so there is a risk of sparks.

Some general rules:

  • Make sure the foil is smooth and wrinkle-free.
  • Keep aluminum foil at a distance (preferably at least 1 inch) from the walls and ceiling of the microwave;
  • If your microwave has a metal turntable or metal rack, do not use aluminum foil.
  • Cover only 1/4 of the food with foil to reduce fire risk and heat food thoroughly.
  • Do not put aluminum foil in the microwave for too long, otherwise the risk will increase

Can i put aluminum foil in the air fryer

Yes, aluminum foil can be put in the air fryer.

Aluminum foil can make the food heat more evenly, lock in the moisture of the food, and prevent the food from being scorched. It can also prevent food and sauce from sticking to the wall of the fryer pot and the bottom of the food basket, making it easier to clean up after use;

Especially for some foods that cannot be cooked directly in the air fryer, if there is no baking pan, it is also a good choice to use aluminum foil instead.

Can i wrap chicken in foil in air fryer

When baking chicken in the air fryer, you can put tin foil or not, but it is recommended to spread a layer of tin foil because this can make the chicken heat more evenly, prevent it from being burned and sticky, and the baked chicken will not be sticky. Chicken tastes better.

Is tin foil and aluminum foil the same

Starting in 1910, aluminum foil began to gradually replace tin foil. Therefore, what people now call "tinfoil" and "tinfoil" are often aluminum foil. From this perspective, tin foil and aluminum foil is the same.

But if we only look at the chemical elements and substances themselves, tin foil and aluminum foil are completely different, in terms of elemental composition, physical properties, and even uses.
