    18" Plastic Wrap Recommendations (Brands; Sources)

    Looking for recommendations for high-quality 18" plastic wrap brands and sources. Lots of options on Amazon, but I see lots of complaints about too-thin film, flimsy boxes, and ineffective cutters too. What's a wrapper to do?

    I don’t know if Costco’s brand is 18”? But, that’s the one I’ve found to be the best! As i type, I really don’t think it’s 18, but perhaps you have already tried their wrap and needing something bigger.

      The Kirkland plastic wrap is only 12" wide. It is great wrap though!

      I'm looking for something bigger so I can wrap with significantly less tangling. Vito Iacopelli takes 12" wrap out of the box and makes that look easy. That's Plan B despite the risk I'll wrap myself in plastic that way.

    I use this one.

    this is from a local store chain. I wouldn’t pay too much attention to reviews from people who are not accustomed to using it frequently.

    the stuff is a pain in the butt but once you get the hang of it it’s like riding a bike.

    that box costs like 20 bucks. That’s the house brand. I love it.

    do have a restaurant supply store?

    so the ..... obviously flimsy stay away from. I agree there.


      I got a box of 18" from a Food Supply Wholesale place. It's thicker than my 12" roll from Costco. Neither one states the mil of the wrap-sorry to say. I like both kinds.


        I use this one


        I prefer the serrated cutter rather than the slide cutter


          Try webstaurant.com. they have I think everything.


            I use Kirkland as well but 18" would be nice. I love their foil too which is nice and wide.


              I agree with a few from above... if you don't have a local restaurant supply store, check out webstaurant.com. I get foil and plastic wrap from my restaurant supply store. I have the slide cutter. It works well but separated from the box so I had to super glue it. So, I might try the serrated version next. Once I go through the multi year supply lol.


                Right on the money, guys; many thanks!!

                Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
