I have used this product for a number of years but I do think that the current version is very poor in comparison to the previous one. It states it is "double sided waxed paper" but I feel only one side is waxed. I have always used it to store icing run-outs and icing lace without a problem, they stick to the 'new' product. I won't be purchasing this product again.

I have used this product for a considerable length of time. The previous product was superior to the one currently available. I will no longer be purchasing this item as the current version does not do what it is designed to do. Bring back the original format which actually worked.

I never had similar paper to use on my leftovers in the fridge. I bought this roll only a month ago, but use it ALL THE TIME and I find it perfect! Regular paper bag will leave the contests too dry and cling film too moist (especially cheese). This is somewhere in between - perfect!

We bought an obscene amount of Bleu d'Auvergne cheese at a continental market on 12 November last year. A kilo of it ... how greedy is that? Very expensive, so wrapped it in this paper after we'd had our first attack on it. Had some more tonight (the Blue Cheese demon strikes when you least expect it, doesn't it?) and it's still perfect, almost 3 months after we bought it. About 250g to go, wrapped up lovingly again in FS Paper. How does it work?!!! Lakeland, please tell me?!

Can we have waxed paper bags, please?”
I lived in the US for some years, where you can buy small waxed paper bags: very useful for sandwiches, leftovers, microwaving, etc. They are unobtainable in this country, but I think they could be very popular if you sold them - they're more "green" than plastic sandwich bags and keep the food better.

I haven't used this in the kitchen yet but it is brilliant in the craft room for using with dies

I have used this product since it came to being and have always loved it. However the new roll is much thinner and not white why did you change it I hope the qualities have not changed it is brilliant for wrapping cheese, especially Parmesan

A note from the team: Thanks for taking the time to write your review. There has been a slight change in the food saver paper. Our buying team have tested the new and old version against each other with blue cheeses, which they kept in the fridge for a length of time and were happy with the performance of the new version.
Waxed paper is superior to clingfilm etc for storing foodstuffs like cheese. It is also excellent for the freezer-foodstuffs need to be double-wrapped with freezer bags or foil though. This paper is of very good quality.

How green is my paper?”
by Jane Beeson
I am trying to cut down the number of plastic bags that hang round in my kitchen - I wash and reuse as many as I can but they don't enhance the view as they hang around dripping! So I invested in some plastic storage boxes for the fridge (including an excellent Lock & Lock bacon box and Tefal cheese cellar) and a roll of this waxed paper. I'm very pleased so far; food like ham and cheese definitely seem to feel less 'damp' after being wrapped in it. I was just wondering if anyone has views on, or experience of, adding it to the compost heap. I use a bokashi bin in the kitchen, which deals with just about everything, but I suppose it depends on what the waxing is actually made of. If it's safe and easy to compost then this paper will be the perfect solution to all my 'green' worries about little plastic bags and clingfilm! So 4 stars plus a possibility of another!
