Reynolds Wrap Aluminum Foil Is Now Color-Coded—Here’s What All the Colors Mean
I'll be stocking up on lots of GREEN!
No kitchen is complete without a set of plastic wrap, parchment paper and aluminum foil. How could anyone possibly cook and bake to their heart’s content without these absolute essentials? From bacon to french fries to cookies, these staples make cleanup easy.
Now, when we talk about aluminum foil, you know we’re talking about Reynolds Wrap! They’ve been in kitchens for 70+ years, and it’s no surprise why. This cooking assistant has received a color-coded packaging makeover, and it’s about to make shopping so much easier.
What Each Reynolds Wrap Color Means
Reynolds Wrap now marks each box of aluminum foil with a color to indicate its purpose. Here’s a key to the Reynolds Wrap color code.

Blue: Heavy Duty
This is heavy-duty foil that does the trick for hefty foods, such as steak. The heavy-duty foil is durable and not easily torn.
This foil is made with 100% recycled aluminum and has a much smaller carbon footprint than its brethren. It uses 90% less energy as opposed to developing a brand-new foil. (You may have already assumed that from the color!)
Orange: Grill Foil
Your heavy-duty grilling foil that was made for summer. Use it for grilled corn on the cob or even chicken legs! Did you know you can even crumple some of this foil into a ball and use it as a grill brush?
