Agreena Reusable Silicone Food Wraps – Wrap, Seal & Bake
Agreena food wraps are the first re-usable, non-toxic & recyclable eco wraps that replace cling film, aluminium foil & baking paper. You can wrap, seal and bake all with the one wrap.
What is it exactly?
Agreena is a non-toxic reusable wrap. It is self-sticking like cling film, but not as thin and unmanageable meaning you can easily cover and seal bowls, and wrap the oddest-shaped food items. The material is super stretchy and strong making it easy to create a perfectly airtight seal on any-sized bowl, cup, glass or plate. Agreena is made from 100% food grade silicone so it can be used in the oven without the funny smell that some silicone composite products off-gas when baked.
Here's a video to show Agreena in action:
How do I use my Agreena wrap?
You can use the Agreena 3-in-1 Wrap in a multitude of ways; you can seal product packages and bowls, wrap an Agreena around the food itself, use them to line baking trays, and place one on top of baked goods to prevent burning. It can go from freezer to oven (AND MICROWAVE). Just be sure not to place it on direct heat sources that may exceed 220 degrees celsius such as BBQ plates.
What is it made from?
Created from the same rubber as infant and medical products, Agreena is made from 100% pure silicone, with no fillers. Silicone is a rubber that contains oxygen bonded with silicon, a natural element that is abundant in sand and rock. Food grade silicone is known for its heat-resistant and rubber-like qualities and is safe for the oven, microwave, fridge, and freezer. It is what they call a “stable compound”, meaning that it will not change the flavour or release odours that might affect food quality.
How long will my Agreena wraps last?
If you treat your Agreena Wrap with care you will have many years of use, saving you money and greatly reducing your contribution to landfills.
How sustainable are they?
When it comes to eco-friendliness, Agreena effectively replaces the need for disposable single use materials like cling film, aluminium foil, baking paper, and many other single-use items, most of which contain harmful chemicals that leach into your food. From a single sustainable process and readily available elements, thousands of durable, waste-reducing silicone wraps can be created, contributing to sustainable manufacturing and resource conservation. A percentage from every pack sold will go to hand selected organisations that are working hard on environmental education, innovation, and cleanups and we pledge to provide full transparency on all climate protection projects supported.
Which size fits best?
Each pack comes with four Agreena Wraps in two sizes: two each of the small 20cm x 20cm wraps and two each of the large 30cm x 30cm wraps. The small size (20cm x 20cm) can wrap half a lemon, the end of a cucumber, half of an onion (Agreena 3-in-1 Wraps won’t be tainted by the odour!), half of an avocado, half of a sandwich, a small bowl, carrot sticks, biscuits, slices, cheese, or muffins. The large size (30cm x 30cm) can cover a large bowl, pie dish, or salad bowl; wrap a sandwich, bread roll, or baguette; line your baking tray or place over a roast to prevent burning or drying out. The large wrap can also be used as a non-stick dough mat for rolling out pie crusts, cookie dough, or other baked go.
We love this product! They cost a lot up front comparative to buying cheap supermarket foil and cling film but as these wasteful products are throwaway and Agreena will last for years, you make your money back.
The philosophy behind Agreena is to make a difference to our world and they believe that small changes by many will make a difference.
