Me neither. Sometimes I use it when I am portioning food to store/freeze.

Otherwise it seems very expensive and doesn't work as well as the plastic wrap from BJ's (in blue and yellow container -- brand name escapes me).

Stretch-Tite. I used to use that but Costco stopped carrying it so I'm now using, AEP Sealwrap, that's as good. It comes with a slide cutter that works great!

My husband bought a roll of this on impulse, but as Jennema said, so far I've only used it for apportioning out food for the freezer. For that, I have to say it's been kind of "cute" to use.

I portioned out tablespoons of leftover tomato paste on a sheet, topped it & pressed around each tablespoon & popped the whole sheet in the freezer. When I need a tablespoon of tomato paste, I just take a scissor & cut off what I need.

Again, it's cute, but I don't think I'll be buying it again.

I put spoonfuls of tomato paste on a plate and freeze them. Them I pop them off the plate and into a ziplock.

Stretch Tite! That stuff is very good.

Like breezy, my tomato paste gets dolloped in T portions in Press n' Seal. Have also pressed and sealed little packets of pulverized garlic, clilantro, etc. so that I can freeze it before it goes bad.

I use the press n seal. Only cause it's so much easier to handle than regular plastic wrap.

I was using it for everything (great coupons = super cheap) but noticed on some ceramicware, it was leaving a residue. Still think it's great, especially when one of the boys doesn't finish his drink. I just seal the top of the drinking glass and store in the fridge.
