Tatt, shiny side out also deflects the black helicopters. Just thought you'd want to know. :)

I was looking for the "in or out, it does not matter" vote.

never pay any attention unless the recipe calls for a specific way

When I cover food for either the fridge or the oven, usually, it's with the shiny side up. Also, when I cover a meat rack. I then poke holes in the foil to let the fat run to the bottom of the pan.

I'm enjoying this thread. It's a little like a toilet paper debate...over the roll or under the roll?

Keep the comments coming. I didn't have any idea there could be so many points of view on an "either or or" subject. You folks rock!
