3 Things You Didn’t Know About Aluminum Foil Cooking Bags


Aluminum foil has a long history in the food industry. Originally conceived as a replacement to tin foil in 1910, aluminum got its start wrapping Swiss chocolate bars and packing stock cubes and soups. Today, aluminum foil is used in almost every conceivable market, and aluminum foil cooking bags offer a convenient way to make a healthy meal for the entire family.

Food Protection

Aluminum foil is impervious to moisture, bacteria, and gases, making it an ideal food packaging tool. These characteristics help food to stay fresh longer than other packaging and cooking options. The ability to block bacteria will also ensure that your family stays healthy and that food is not tainted throughout the cooking process.

Keeps Food Warm and Locks in Flavor

Aluminum foil has reflexive properties, so it acts as a barrier to oxygen. This allows the foil to reflect thermal energy back to the food rather than releasing it into the atmosphere. As a result, the food maintains its flavor, moisture, and aroma, which is why they are increasingly found in pre-packaged cooking bags at your local grocery store.

You also don’t need to put the aluminum foil directly onto the food, which is why our aluminum grilling bags are so effective. In pouch form, as thermal energy moves away from the food, it can be properly reflected back to your meal, maintaining the freshness.

No Need to Flip

Making a meal with aluminum foil cooking bags is extremely convenient. You simply place your desired food items in the bag, set them on the grill, and cook. You don’t even have to flip the bag at any point in the process. By simply using the grilling bag, your food is sure to cook evenly, and you won’t have to worry about anything falling through the grill grates. Additionally, that convenience extends after your meal is complete, as you can simply throw the cooking bag away and enjoy your dinner without having to scrape your grill clean.

Not all aluminum foil cooking bags are alike. Some are made entirely from aluminum foil, while others have a clear top window. The cooking bags that are made entirely of aluminum foil tend to be hotter than those with a built-in window. At Ready. Chef. Go!, we went above and beyond your typical clear top window. Our grilling bags are designed with one completely translucent side which allows you to easily monitor your cooking progress, given the different grill temperatures and cook-through preferences.

At Ready. Chef. Go!, we aim to make mealtime easier, and that’s why we offer an assortment of cooking bags to both individual consumers and to distributors and grocers.
