An Australian invention, the Flexsil-lid is the ideal replacement for plastic film wrap and foil and is designed to cover gastronorm and steam pans. They were primarily designed for keeping foodstuffs fresher for longer when stored in fridges or coldrooms but amazingly are capable of being frozen and cooked with.
Flexsil-lids are resistant to both the heat of ovens and the cold of freezers and are made from food grade silicon. Using a patented ‘lip-lock’ design the Flexsil-lid fits all standard Gastronorms or steam pans, covering the contents to maintain freshness longer when stored, or speed up the cooking time if used in ovens.
Designed to withstand temperatures down to -40°C if used in freezers and up to 220°C when cooking in ovens, this environmentally friendly and hygienic product eliminates the use of excessive amounts of ‘plastic’ film wrap to keep food fresh or ‘foil’ to cook with. And, being a re-usable product, the Flexsil-lid is dishwasher safe and can be used many times over.
