Cook's Illustrated: Equipment Review

The star of the show was the Stretch-Tite Wrap’n Snap 7500 Dispenser ($22.00), which performed the best in every test. It's cleverly concealed blade gave us a clean cut every time, the loading mechanism was smooth and tangle-free, we could pull plastic wrap forward without the dispenser falling over, and its height—it stands tallest of the bunch—made it easier to wrap bowls. In sum, it was easier and faster to use than the box of wrap you buy at the supermarket.
