Tinfoil can be your biggest kitchen ally and short cut if you know how to use it. Inexpensive and completely versatile, tinfoil can help you get from point a to point b faster than any other kitchen tool around.

I always have a roll in my kitchen drawer, and it's usually of the heavy duty variety because you can use it for more things. Here are just a few ideas of how to make tinfoil work for you:

Line the bottom of your oven to catch drips and overflows.

Wrap around piecrusts to keep from burning.

Line product drawers in refrigerator for more sanitary conditions.

Fashion into a funnel for putting dressings and other liquids back into jars.

Line baking sheets and glassware for no mess clean ups.

Use on top of grill for cooking delicate fishes, veggies or pizza.
Use a balled up piece of tinfoil to clean stubborn pots and pans.

Use for packet cooking in the oven.

Moms, how do you use tinfoil in your kitchen?

I use it over things in the over.
When i make stuffed pork chops i wrap them in foil.
Veggies on the grill go in foil too.

I use aluminum foil for a lot of things. We make packets for the grill. I use to to cover leftoever in the fridge, I use it lining cookie sheets. I've never thought of using it for a funnel though, thats a pretty good idea!

I use it for the bottom of the produce drawer. For packets in the oven, anything really.

Those are really good ideas.  I usually just use it to cover things in the oven.  I'd like to try more things though as we have a lot!
