Are you sick of searching for the covers to your storage dishes, or fighting with the plastic wrap? Yeah...me too! Thanks to CoverMate food covers we now have a different option for covering our foods! New CoverMate stretch-to-fit food covers provide a quick and easy way to cover all plates, bowls and containers.
Covermate covers are sold in individual boxes of medium size covers (12 ct), large size covers (10 ct) and our new Variety Pack (10 ct) which contains a selection of medium, large and extra large size covers. You can also go online and get a free sampler pack(as well as a $1 off coupon for future order) and just pay the $3.95 S&H .
I received the CoverMate variety pack to try out. I have to say...I love them. I have not used plastic wrap at all since I have been using the CoverMates. It is just so much easier to grab one of these covers and stretch it over what ever dish my food is in. I do not have to worry about the food going over the top of the dishes, as the cover will stretch over and will fit along the edges of the dish. These are great this time of year, as we love to BBQ and have fresh fruits. For this we tend to use paper plates a lot...and we all know that plastic wrap does not stick to those paper plates. I have used the CoverMate covers over paper plates to store the leftovers. They work great! I have even used them to cover a half of a watermelon placed on a platter. This would have used a lot of plastic wrap to cover it, but the extra large CoverMate fit with room to spare.
These are also great to use in the microwave to prevent foods from splattering or to steam your veggies. I have used these several times and they hold up well. I have not seen any signs of stress from using them in the microwave, unlike many of my storage dish covers. They are clear, so you can see what food they are covering, or while in the microwave you can keep an eye on the food you are heating.
