I use one of these to open up jars with.  Well sometimes you get a jar and the lid is on to tight. I slip it under the lid. Pop the seal on it. Voila. Jar opens easy.

 Parchment paper works much better than waxpaper. Have you tried it? It's what professional bakers use.

Quoting caseysmommy8911:

 I love to bake cakes my trick is to cut out a circle in wax paper (im sure they sells them pre cut somewhere) and i put it at the bottom no flour and no non stick spray. Take a butter knife to the sides and it comes out perfct every time

 Never thought of doing crab legs in foil on the grill. What a great idea!

I always used waxed paper for everything.Warming up leftovers,cookie bacon,. But since Parchment paper has come into my life sort of speak, it can be used for a lot more tasks than I thought. I like the pockets that they have where you can heat up your food an take it with you.Or if you are making some kind of vetgetables when done just prick open the bag,Your vegs are right there no need to use a baking dish,
