    Tips for use

    Preserving meat and fish

    Preserving meat and fish

    If you just leave meat or fish in the original trays when you freeze them, they tend to lose their savory components.
    Asahi Wrap™ sticks well and doesn’t let oxygen or moisture pass through, so wrapping food in it when you put it in the freezer will help it stay delicious. You can wrap individual portions, so it’s easy to use, too.

    Microwave cooking

    Microwave cooking

    Instead of boiling vegetables, you can put them on a plate, cover them with Asahi Wrap™, and cook them in a microwave. This will stop the nutrients from escaping.

    Precautions regarding use

    When using it in a microwave

    • 1. If covering a plate,
      etc. with it then heating

      Cover loosely, leaving a little room.If it’s tight, it’ll split from the pressure of the steam.

    • 3. If heating oily food

      If you heat oily food that’s directly wrapped with Asahi Wrap™, it can get very hot and exceed the heat-resistance temperature, causing the film to break or melt. When doing something like this, heat the food in a deep, heat-resistant container.

    • 4. Precautions about after heating

      Steam may cause burns after microwave cooking. Therefore, remove the film by holding it at the far side of the container and pulling it toward you.

    Don’t use an oven (function) / Keep it away from fire

    In places that get hot—such as near a gas hob, oven, microwave oven, toaster oven, or stove—the film may melt and stick to itself, or shrink and bend the paper tube (core). As a result, you may no longer be able to pull it out.

    Don’t use it for anything other than wrapping food

    Asahi Wrap™ is designed to be used for preserving and cooking food. Don’t use it for any other purpose.
