Disposable Foil Containers - (probably a daft question!)

I'm sure I've read in the past somewhere that to make life easier you can use those disposable foil trays for cooking the christmas dinner (and remembering how much my DC whinged last year when they were asked to wash up, sounds like a good plan).

I did just wonder though, does using these make any difference how well everything cooks? I know Delia is always going on about how you should buy expensive roasting tins etc and just wondered if using a cheapie 99p roasting tray has any effect on things cooking evenly such as your roast potatoes crisping up etc.

Erm....Don't you need to wash the foil containers before you put them in the recycling....?

Who would know?

I use them and they cook the food fine. I do put them on a baking tray so it's well supported.

In terms of washing them, I scrape them out, give it a quick rinse and then put it in the recycling.

It doesn't make any difference ime. Foil containers get hot enough for everything to cook properly. However I do have expensive roasting tins that I use normally because cheap ones warp quickly and aren't as easy to clean.

Thanks panda and chanie, that's really helpful and reassuring.

Definitely doesn't make any difference. But do remember to put a tray under the one with the turkey; they support roasties perfectly well but not poultry.

Agree with Builder - trays underneath are a must to support the foil.
