What’s the Difference Between Regular and Heavy-Duty Aluminum Foil? — What’s the Difference

Aluminum foil is a kitchen essential. If you're like us, you use this workhorse for wrapping up leftovers, packaging food for the freezer, and lining baking sheets and grill grates. It can even be a cooking vessel all on its own, which is especially handy if you're short on pots and pans (or just don't feel like cleaning).
