Many recipes recommend covering or wrapping your food in aluminum foil while it cooks. However, it’s not suitable for every application. If you’re using aluminum foil as an oven liner, it could cause more harm than good.
Also to know is, can you put foil on a pan while cooking?
Lining your cooking pans is a simple way to cut down on cleanup! To line your pan, simply flip it upside down and tear off a sheet of Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil as long as the pan. Mold the foil around the base so that it forms to the shape of your bakeware. Flip the pan over and place foil liner inside.
In this way, what does tin foil do in the oven?
Foil conducts heat well in ovens or grills, withstanding excessive temperatures, so it acts as a good barrier to protect food areas from over baking, such as pie crusts and poultry skins, allowing the foods to cook slower and more thoroughly without burning.
