Form Foil On Bottom Before Lining Pan

For fitting foil into a roasting pan without tearing the foil, turn pan upside down and fit the foil to the outside of the pan. turn it right side up and gently fit the formed foil to the inside of the pan.

Great idea! I use the "disposable" foil containers for pies and cakes and with this hint, they can be lined with foil without tearing and re used many times. Thanks for this tip.

When needing to line a baking pan with foil, turn the pan upside down, take the foil and shape it around the bottom of the pan and up the sides. Then pull it off, turn the pan right side up and just set the foil right inside the pan! Sh-bang! Perfect fit!

Form Foil On Bottom Before Lining Pan

Duh. Now why didn't I think of that? Such a simple solution. Where was my brain this past weekend when I tried to line a large baking pan with foil? Thanks for turning my brain around a bit. I can't believe I tried stuffing that darn foil into the pan the other way!
