Products That Didn't Make the Cut

And why they didn't make the cut. 

Clings Well But Lets Odors Escape

Clings Well But Lets Odors Escape

Hitachi Kasei's Antibacterial Wrap (11) is a thin wrap with good clinginess that's also strong. You'll have to hold the box upright to get a good enough cut or it will tear


Although it scored high on the clinginess test, it can't hold odors in well. The colored water leaked out a bit as well but nothing too major

Clings Well But Lets Odors Escape

Riken Fablo's Riken Wrap (12) is thin and rough to the touch but scored highly on the test for clinginess. Even when we turned the colored water-filled containers upside-down, there was no leakage. Out of all the products we tested, this proved to be the strongest. 


It cut well but since the cutter is located on the bottom of the package, it takes some getting used to. Covering plates requires a cut in the upward direction, also requiring some getting used to in order to do it quickly. 

Clings Well But Lets Odors Escape

Hitachi Kasei's Hitachi Wrap (14) was thin and rough with a soft touch. Didn't tear easily, either. Although, while cutting, the wrap stretched out a bit too much making it incredibly difficult to cut


Although we found it had great clinginess, it received one of the worst ratings for failing to hold in the food odor. It started to reek once we opened the ziplock. This wrap is not recommended for storing foods with strong odors. 

Great For Holding in Odors, but Not Liquid

Great For Holding in Odors, but Not Liquid

ITOCHU Retail Link's Microwavable Plastic Wrap (13) has a comparatively thick feel to it but scored lousy on the test for clinginess. It could be because of its thickness but there was a lot of leakage during the tests. 


There was not a lot of difficulty when cutting but when pulling the wrap out it scraped against the edge of the box, making it more difficult. There is also a lot of resistance from the stopper, which could become very irritating. 

Not a Bad Cut But Difficult to Open

Not a Bad Cut But Difficult to Open

Seiyu's Kihon No Ki Kitchen Wrap (15) is a thin, soft wrap that stretched out easily. Not horrible when it comes to the cut but sometimes the edges stretch out too much making it difficult to tear


When opening up the upper lid that has the cutter, it seems to get caught on something making it almost impossible to open smoothly

Great for a Budget but Not Much Else

Great for a Budget but Not Much Else

Ube Film Company's NEW Poly Wrap (16) is thin and rough to the touch and comes apart when trying to peel it from itself. Because of this, we found it produced a lot of leakage during the test for clinginess. 


The wrap itself stretches and tears but not enough for it to be too difficult to cut when needed. More importantly, the wrap is difficult to grasp when trying to pull it out causing it to tear and causing you a bit of stress. 

Great for a Budget but Not Much Else

Seria's KITCHEN WRAP (17) is soft and thin and is much like that of DAISO. Lacking any strength at all, it tears easily when pulling on it


Since the wrap doesn't stretch out all that much, it's fairly easy to cut but the stopper digs into the box, adding resistance to when trying to pull the wrap out

Great for a Budget but Not Much Else

DAISO'S KITCHEN WRAP (18) - When trying to cut the wrap, it stretches out too much making the task difficult. 


Also, there's no guard protecting the wrap from rolling back inside causing the wrap to get rolled up in the center making it more difficult to get it out the next time. The stopper attached to the box stopping the wrap from coming out is also rather deep, adding even more resistance to being able to get it out. 

How We Tested the Products

How We Tested the Products

We purchased the top 20 best-selling plastic kitchen wraps from Japanese websites like Amazon, Rakuten, etc. and put them to the test! 


We tested each product for the following 3 points. 

① Ease of Use
② Clinginess
③ Ability to Trap in Odor

Test ① Ease of Use

First, we tested each wrap for how easy each one is to use. 

Test ① Ease of Use

We made cuts at 6 and 12 inches, 5 times each for all products to test whether or not we experienced any stress or resistance. 

Test ① Ease of Use

We checked for whether or not it was easy getting the wrap out, whether the wrap came flying out when pulling at it, and if the wrap itself cut well without stretching out too much. We then rated them for their overall ease of use. 

Test ① Ease of Use

What influenced our rating the most were how easy the wrap was to get out and how well it cut. We found out from our tests that the easiest ones to use were ones fit with a flap on the box and whose wrap was made out of polyvinylidene chloride! Having these two conditions are quite representative of a well made plastic wrap. 



There were a lot of wraps whose faults were found with its packaging. For example, the stopper equipped for preventing the wrap from flying out of the box dug into the center too much and gave us resistance when trying to get the wrap out or the wrap flying out for no reason or the edge of the wrap getting caught back up in the roll. 

Test ② Clinginess

Next, we tested for how well each wrap clung to the bowls we were using. 

Test ② Clinginess

We filled ceramic bowls with 20 milliliters of colored water and covered each one with 12 inches of wrap. 

Test ② Clinginess

We shook each bowl 30 times to see how much liquid would escape and gave those with minimal leakage our highest rating. 

Test ② Clinginess

When testing for clinginess, the ones that rated the highest were the ones made of polyvinyl chloride. The ones we found to be thinner and softer were especially effective against leaks, even after getting wrinkled. 


The polyethylene wrap also scored well on the clinginess test. These ones don't stretch out as much as the polyvinyl chloride ones do, so choose the one that's right for you. 

Test ③ Ability To Trap in Odors

Lastly, we tested for how well each wrap trapped in odors. 

Test ③ Ability To Trap in Odors

We filled a plastic cup with 30 grams of kimchi, vinegar and blue cheese and covered it with our plastic wraps. We then triple wrapped each cup with rubber bands to prevent odors from escaping as much as possible, put each cup inside a Ziplock bag and let it sit for 6 hours at room temperature.  

Test ③ Ability To Trap in Odors

After the 6 hours, we smelled each bag and gave the ones with the lowest amount of odor our highest rating. 

Test ③ Ability To Trap in Odors

With other materials, you're bound to be confronted with some horrific smells but with plastic wraps made of polyvinylidene chloride, there is almost no smell at all. While conducting this test, we decided to hide the names of the materials of each plastic wrap but those made with polyvinylidene chloride received our highest rating. 


On the other hand, those wraps made from polyvinyl chloride tended to give off the most odor. Unfortunately, there's no perfect product out there unbeatable in both clinginess and odor suppression. 

How to Choose Your Plastic Wrap - Buying Guide

Here we have 4 points we would like everyone to consider when choosing their plastic wrap. 

① Choose Based on the Characteristics of the Material

Most plastic wraps are made of either polyvinylidene chloride, polyvinyl chloride, or polyethylene. Here, we'll introduce the characteristics of each one and we'd like you to choose the one that best suits your needs. 

Polyvinylidene Chloride Prevents Oxidation and Holds in Odor: Recommended for Fresh Foods

Polyvinylidene Chloride Prevents Oxidation and Holds in Odor: Recommended for Fresh Foods

Polyvinylidene chloride keeps out moisture allowing your food to keep longer and protects from letting out any unwanted odors


We especially recommend using a plastic wrap made from this material to store things like meat or fish. It has a resistance to heat as well, making it perfect for use in the microwave. 


There are a number of plastic wraps out there made from polyvinylidene chloride. Since it has that "high-grade quality feel" to it, it's a little on the expensive side.  

Polyvinyl Chloride Clings Hard and Contracts Nicely: Recommended for Foods/Dishes with a Lot of Juices

 Polyvinyl Chloride Clings Hard and Contracts Nicely: Recommended for Foods/Dishes with a Lot of Juices

Since plastic wraps containing polyvinyl chloride have great clinging ability, they're recommended for foods or dishes with a lot of liquid. And since the wrap clings so well to containers, it can also be used by restaurants for home delivery of ramen and other dishes.


Its outstanding clinginess prevents liquid spillage but the material itself lets in moisture so it's not recommended for long-term storage. 


Hitachi Wrap, Riken Wrap, and Daiso Wrap are all plastic wraps made from polyvinyl chloride. The cost of these is cheaper than ones made from polyvinylidene chloride

Polyethylene Provides Security at a Reasonable Price: Perfect for Fruits and Vegetables

Polyethylene Provides Security at a Reasonable Price: Perfect for Fruits and Vegetables

Polyethylene contains less additives than other materials giving it that sense of security. It's also known for its strength and ability to hold in liquids


Although it's not really resistant to heat and lets in oxygen, it's perfect for items that need to breathe, like fruits and vegetables


Its cheap cost compared to other plastic wraps also makes it an attractive purchase. 

② If You Plan on Using It in the Microwave, Choose a Wrap with High Heat Resistance

② If You Plan on Using It in the Microwave, Choose a Wrap with High Heat Resistance

If you plan to use your plastic wrap in the microwave, go with one made from polyvinylidene chloride or polyvinyl chloride. Here's a layout of these material's resistances to heat and cold. 


  • Polyvinylidene Chloride: -76°F~284°F
  • Polyvinyl Chloride: -76°F~266°F
  • Polyethylene: -76°F~230°F

However, even when using wraps made from polyvinylidene chloride or polyvinyl chloride, be careful when heating up foods with high oil content. If the oil exceeds the resistance temperature of the wrap, it has the possibility of melting causing holes to form. To prevent this, try as much as possible to avoid having the wrap touch the oily foods directly.

③ Choose a Wrap Whose Box Comes Equipped with a Flap and/or a Stopper

③ Choose a Wrap Whose Box Comes Equipped with a Flap and/or a Stopper

When choosing to purchase a plastic wrap, try choosing one that has a flap either on the box itself or inside


The flap is used to allow for easier spooling out of the wrap itself. It is visible in the photo above. As long as there's a flap, you'll be able to easily grab the wrap, pull it out smoothly and cut it with no hassle. 


We also recommend those plastic wraps whose boxes come with a stopper preventing the edge of the wrap from getting stuck inside. 

④ Check Where the Cutter is on the Box and What It's Made Of

④ Check Where the Cutter is on the Box and What It's Made Of

Plastic wraps for use at home stress the importance of safety and usually have the teeth of the cutter pointing down but ones used for business are located on the underside for quick and easy cuts


Each person has their own preference for which one's easier to use but since this part of the box is rather important in terms of ease of use, make sure you know which one you prefer.

Looking for Other Household Products? Take a Look at These!

You can use your plastic wrap soon after purchasing it but if you'd like to pair it with either a wrap case or wrap holder, you'll find your work in the kitchen a lot more pleasant. 


In the articles below, you'll find highly-efficient wrap cases and fashionable wrap holders so, if you're interested, check them out as well!

Summary

This time, we ranked the top 18 best Japanese plastic wraps! 


Even though some plastic wraps are made of the same material, they differ in terms of resistances to heat and cold, their ability to contract well, and how they feel. But now we know all of their characteristics in order to make better purchasing decisions. Please use this article as a reference when deciding to go out and buy your next plastic wrap!

    Pepper is an extremely versatile ingredient that you can use to season steaks, add bite to salads, or plate as a garnish forfish. However, the ground pepper you get in a can from the supermarket isn’t as good as freshly ground pepper since pepper undergoes oxidation once ground! This means that it loses flavor and intensity. You have to use a lot of pre-ground pepper to get the same taste as the freshly ground stuff! That's why we highly recommend electric pepper grinders as a convenient and easy way to pack more flavor into your favorite dishes. Our top pepper grinder was the Salt and Pepper Grinder Set by Latent Epicure which we loved for its easy operation, sturdy design, and accessories.
