Aluminum foil is super popular in the kitchen. In fact, since about 1920 we ’ve been packing food in aluminum foil and it’s been veritably easy and low cost to do so. But should we be using aluminum foil like this? Are we keeping our sandwiches fresh at the expenditure of adding a fire hazard into our lives? Is it likely that our aluminum foil is going to burst into honey at the worst possible time?


Aluminum foil isn't ignitable and can only catch fire at veritably high temperatures. Aluminum foil won’t catch fire until it reaches roughly 1220 Fahrenheit (660 Celsius).
