A tear in my eye”
by Oenone Acheson
I have been buying Lakeland Cling Film for more years than you can imagine, from way back when it was really the best. It's with tear in my eye that I have to agree with so many other reviews - it's pretty terrible now. Cover something with it, and when you CAREFULLY uncover it, it still tears like tissue paper. I've been trying to ignore this, purely out of loyalty - I love you guys -, but I've gotten to the stage where I am seriously considering going online for an alternative. There's GOT to be something better out there. But I weep…...

multy purpose clingfilm”
by Mrs MacGillivray
I was so pleased with this product and it's dispenser that I bought one for each of my 3 daughters. from a very satisfied customer
Published 07 May 2013
Over the years, I have purchased 15-20 of the wonderful Wrapmaster dispensers for myself, family and friends and together with this cling film, it is brilliant combination. The cling film is strong and does not tangle. It has so many uses and you simply cannot buy better quality film anywhere else.

Fantastic - well worth the price”
I was a bit reticent about buying this for my wrapmaster (nothing else fits) as it's more expensive than supermarket brands - but I've found it to be so utterly superior to cheaper cling film that I'm now on about my tenth roll. It is strong, thick and far more durable than other clingfilm. I seem to have to use less of it so it doesn't work out more expensive in the end after all.

Does what it says on the packaging!”
Unlike other, cheaper versions this film really does cling to all things earthenware. Plastic or metal containers usually have to be completely covered in order to adhere, but this is common to all clingfilm as far as I am aware. I try to re-order before I run out as I find the quality of this product far superior to other brands.

Fantastic, Fantastic, Fantastic. I've been using this for years with the wrapmaster dispenser and would highly recommend it to everyone. Even my husband loves it and doesn't shout at the cling film anymore !

A great little wrap!”
This is one of the best brands of cling film. Used with the wrap master it's unbeatable. I had to use a generic supermarket brand for a few weeks as I couldn't get to a store before Christmas but I swapped to this as soon as it arrived and the difference was incredible. Thank you Lakeland for not only doing something that works as it should, but for doing a larger roll so that it keeps on going and going and going!

No problems - what is all the fuss?”
by Ian Lyell
I was a bit concerned to buy this product after seeing some of the comments made. However I bought 2 rolls and I can't fault it. Used with the dispenser/cutter it is the envy of my family.

I have been using the cling film for many years now and always been very happy with the quality. But the last one I bought (a couple of months ago) is very poor. It is not clingy i.e. not sticking. My son thought I bought some real cheap home-brand product. If the product does not improve, I don't think I'll ever buy another Lakeland Cling film ever again. I rate it 1 star, because that the lowest rating. This product should be rated No Star.

ULTIMATE MULTI PURPOSE CLING FILM”
Having purchased the above cling film for the second time I find it surprising not to be able to get a refill for the dispenser it comes in. In these days of recycling I would prefer to use a cling film which I can refill. I am sure as one of the leading brands in cling films etc you could do something about this. I have before purchased another leading brand and they can refill theirs so what about it!!

I bought two packs of your multi-purpose cling film a few months ago, for my wife. I was fed up with continually having to uncling the cheaper brands. This cling film is a pleasure to use.The 150 metre roll unrolled without once causing a problem. It tears well and is I think slightly thicker or maybe a touch stronger than other brands..I am just about to order two more rolls. To sum up great product, would recommend it.

Not as expected of Lakeland quality”
by Mrs Lindsay
Ordered the trial version of it to give it a try together with the aluminium foil. Aluminium foil was great but have to say this cling film is so clumsy and difficult to use, quite a hassle to use. It doesn't tear well at all and keeps going back to the roll and take ages to unroll it to find the edges. When it tears, it doesn't give a good line of tear and often tears midway through the roll. Probably won't be getting this again.

Goes well with the Wrapmaster.”
I was given a roll of Cling Roll to try, as I had previously had trouble with the Wrapmaster, which was replaced with a new one. The Cling Roll fits exactly and pulls out with little effort. The Wrapmaster cuts cleanly every time, and I am very pleased with both items. Thank you Lakeland!

Not a good review.”
by Rebecca Taylor
Like many other people I feel I must complain about the quality of this cling flim. We bought our first roll many years ago and I have loved it and always been prepared to pay that bit extra for the good quality. A friend picked me up a replacement just before Christmas and we have had no end of trouble with it. Poor quality, keeps ripping and not as good as it used to be. Very disappointed.

I hate be part of a herd instinct here, but I have to agree with the recent reviews. This product is not as good. I ordered a replacement clingfilm plus roll, as we know we can always rely on Lakeland quality and are willing to pay a bit more for that quality. Our previous clingfilm plus was running out and having placed this order I then found a roll my wife had bought a while back so I started to use this before the latest roll arrived. Having read the recent reviews I thought I'd check on the quality and difference (sad I know!) and to me the latest supply of clingfilm is not of the same quality. I have tried the cutter with it and it neither cuts well nor when stretched holds it's shape well. Being keen amateur cooks we use quite alot to prepare covered food and store food knowing that the film was never in danger of tearing. Come on Lakeland if I wanted to buy everyday clingfilm I'd go down to a local supermarket and do just that. Improve or you will start to lose your loyal customer base and reputation you have spent a lot of time building up.

I buy fresh multi-grain bread from the supermarket, bring it home, cut it, wrap it and freeze it into manageable portions. I wouldn't bother at all if I didn't have the Wrapmaster unit, it's so easy.

Does what it says on the pack!”
It really clings! Unlike a lot of other "cling" films I've tried, this one actually sticks. It stays put in the microwave, on sandwiches, over plated food, and everything else I've ever wanted it to stick to. I won't use anything else these days, although it is a bit of a pain getting it, as we don't have a Lakeland in our town- my nearest branch is 30 miles away, so I stock up on it whenever I go there!

Wrapmaster & Lakeland Cling Roll”
Being fed up to the back teeth of inferior cling film which never tore off the roll properly, or stuck to itself when it did and cling film boxes which bend out of shape making using the cutter impossible, I opted for the Wrapmaster. At the time I thought it was a tad expensive & yes, the refills do cost more than you would pay in the supermarket but you have to pay for quality and that's exactly what you get with the Wrapmaster. It is a godsend & I willingly pay the little bit extra for the refills knowing that I am buying a great quality product. The cling film never rips or sticks to itself, the blade for cutting the cling is internal so no more shreadded knuckles & it makes cutting the cling film a doddle. Refilling the dispenser couldn't be easier. My husband is a great fan & won't let me buy any other brand of cling film, joking that if we ever split up there will be a fight over who gets custody of the Wrapmaster!!!
