UAportal compared what is better to use for baking meat: a plastic sleeve or foil.

Heat distribution

A baking sleeve provides a more even distribution of heat around the meat, resulting in more even cooking. In addition, the insulation provided by the thermal sleeve helps to cook faster and more evenly.


Foil is often chosen because of its easy pliability and versatility in forming. Therefore, it is considered a more useful option.

On the other hand, a baking sleeve can be inconvenient for different types of baking. Nevertheless, the ability to use a baking sleeve without additional utensils outweighs the practicality factor.

Moisture retention

A baking sleeve has the advantage of effectively retaining the natural juices of the meat, keeping it moist and juicy during the cooking process. What's more, the enhanced steaming effect of the roasting sleeve contributes to tender and juicy meat.
