Ekoroo: All you need to know about silicone food covers

What are silicone food covers? The perfect alternative to cling film, Silicone Food Covers are the ideal replacement for single-use plastic wrap to seal dishes, bowls, cans, cups or fruit and vegetables. Thanks to the natural power of suction, these super handy, stretchy wonders stick to virtually anything, creating an instant seal and turning a cup, a pot, a pan and even fresh produce into instant storage.

Are silicone food covers safe?

The harmful toxins in plastics make cling wrap an unhealthy choice for food storage. Reusable food covers made from silicone on the other hand, can withstand heating and freezing without leaching or off-gassing hazardous chemicals. Unlike plastics, which contaminate food in these environments, food-grade silicone is a non-toxic polymer made mostly from silica (sand). This makes silicone food covers a must-have item for anyone who wants a chemical-free and reusable, waste-free alternative!

Benefits of silicone food covers

Eco-friendly and health-friendly, silicone food covers also save you money, as you will no longer need to buy plastic cling wrap to cover your leftover food to keep it fresh. The airtight seal works on stainless steel, glass, plastic and ceramic items to not only keep your food fresh for longer, but prevents spills and seals in heat during cooking. Oven-resistant to 230 degrees Celsius, silicone food covers can also be used to cover food that you’re steaming, or as a splash guard for frying. They are also microwave safe, dishwasher safe and suitable for use in the freezer.

How long do silicone food covers last?

Resistant to both low and high temperatures (-70°C~230°C) and treated with care, reusable silicone food covers are incredibly durable and long-lasting. They will remain intact and as good as new, even with repeated use for an indefinite time.

Alternative to beeswax wrap

Awaken your inner vegan with silicone food covers! One of the primary sources of environmentally-unfriendly items we keep at home that’s bound for landfill, is the plastic we use for food storage. While beeswax wraps mean a reduced carbon footprint and support for small artisan businesses, they do not possess the stretchy, grippy, oven-, microwave- and dishwasher-safe qualities of reusable food covers made from silicone. Moreover, you will need to avoid beeswax wraps if you are vegan, or allergic to pollen or honey. Cruelty-free and completely vegan, simplicity meets practicality with the quick, no-fuss versatility of silicone food covers!
