    ok miss breezy i will

    the shiny part is just the part that comes in contact with the rollers in the factory, but both sides conduct heat the same

    Lmao.

    It's been said that shiny objects reflect light and heat, while dull objects absorb light and heat.

    So, if this is to be true, then the shiny side of tinfoil would not cook the same as the dull side.

    One of those things you always wonder about, but never bother to check. Good to know.

    Actually, there is a difference.

    "Which side of Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil should I use, the shiny or the dull side?

    Actually, it makes no difference which side of the aluminum foil you use both sides do the same fine job of cooking, freezing and storing food. [...]

    The exception is when using Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Aluminum Foil. The non-stick coating is applied during manufacturing to the dull side of the foil. Always place the non-stick (dull) side toward the food."

    Which is an important distinction, because generally, gloss means non-stick.

    I figured you guys would read up on the link

    but yeah i was referring to how well each side cooks food.... most people question whether to put the shiny side towards the food or away from thinking the shiny and dull side cook food differently... but they cook the same.
