Re-usable lids replace plastic film wrap and foil

Described as providing the ideal replacement for plastic film wrap and foil is the Flexsil-lid range of re-usable lids available exclusively from Metcalfe.

An Australian invention, they were primarily designed for keeping foodstuffs fresher for longer when stored in fridges or coldrooms but can withstand temperatures down to -40°C if used in freezers and up to 220°C when cooking in ovens.

Made from food grade silicon, the Flexsil-lid uses a patented ‘lip-lock’ design to fit all standard Gastronorms or steam pans, covering the contents to maintain freshness longer when stored, or speed up the cooking time if used in ovens.

This environmentally friendly and hygienic product eliminates the use of excessive amounts of plastic film wrap to keep food fresh or foil to cook with. And, being a re-usable product, the Flexsil-lid is dishwasher safe and can be used many times over.
