Can I use Multix Cling in the microwave?
Multix Cling is microwave safe, but not suitable for use in browning units or conventional ovens. Multix Cling can be used in the microwave to cover items when you want to hold in all the steam. Its strength and ‘clinginess’ ensure that it doesn’t move during cooking. Always be careful when you remove the cling as the steam released can cause a burn.

Can I use Multix Freezer Bags in the microwave?
Multix Freezer Bags are suitable for covering dishes in the microwave.

(NB: do not use a twist tie in the microwave as they contain metal).
Multix new range of Freezer Bags with handles can be used in the microwave and no twist tie is necessary.
Always be careful when you open the freezer bag as the steam released can cause a burn.
Can I use Multix Alfoil in the microwave?
Yes, you can use Multix Alfoil in the microwave provided you follow some simple guidelines.
- The foil must be keep away from the oven wall. Make sure you don’t leave any corners or exposed edges of the dish. As with the wire in a twist tie, this can cause ‘arcing’ – which can damage the oven walls and cause fire.
- Microwaving cannot penetrate foil, so you can use it to prevent food cooking too quickly, for instance the wings on a whole chicken. Just cover the wings, securing the foil with a toothpick and remove 2/3 of the way through cooking for a perfect result.
Similarly, you can use foil when you are defrosting if only a portion of the frozen item is required. Wrap the frozen item (making sure not to leave any loose pieces of foil) leaving the required portion exposed.
What is foil melt?
Foil melt can occur with foods that have a high acidic and/or salt content, such as spaghetti sauce, preserved meats or meatloaf. If they are covered with foil while they are still warm, the steam rising off the food takes with it the acids and salts as it rises and this in turn can react with the foil.
To avoid this, allow foods to cool completely before covering them with foil.
Foil melt can also occur if you cover a stainless steel dish with foil. A reaction can occur between the two metals causing the foil to dissolve. To prevent this happening allow the dish to cool, then place a layer of Multix Cling Wrap between the dish and the foil, before storing.
Multix Alfoil will actually perform either way that you use it. For optimum results, we suggest that it is best to wrap the shiny side in for freezing and storing, and the shiny side out when reflecting qualities are desired such as covering the griller tray.
