How I tested....
I compared each version on overall appearance, malleability, durability thus far, and then tested each on a) a plastic canister of sunflower seeds, a small glass of water, a glazed cereal bowl, a metal mixing bowl, and a cut open/started loaf of Freshpet dog food (I do not endorse freshpet but my dog is sick and in one of his finicky moods). I also compared seal, cleaning/instructions, and how they did between fridge and ambient temperatures.
By feel, these were the most pleasant to work with, but were not as sticky as the Honey Bee Wraps. The Bee's Wrap brand is made in Vermont. Instructions were similar- wash in COOL water with dish soap, hang to dry, fold and store. Reuse for about a year and not recommended using for meat. Avoid heat and don't cut on them. The color/pattern was pleasant- an off white with a honey comb print. The Large is 13x14 in, medium is 10x11in, small is 7 x8 in. The smell is the only gentle/pleasant one of the brands I tried. It gets an A+ for malleability and shows no wear at folds/corners. It wasn't as sticky on wet/sweating glass as the Honeybee Wrap brand. It leaked the same as the PataBee brand with the water glass test. It didn't leave a visible residue like the Honeybee Wrap did. I'd rate it a B for functionality.
The pattern is nice to me, though I prefer simple solid earth tones personally I don't mind the honey comb. This pack came with 3 sizes and they are a good mix and ideal for many uses. Of all 3 brands, these scored 1st place in coating durability- the PataBee ones had damage from the crisp corners made during the folding process, these showed almost no wear/opacity at the folded corners.
These worked on all the different surfaces equally well, just not as well as the Honey Bee Wraps. They take a little work to stick to edges and themselves but aren't as stiff as the ParaBee's. They wash and dry fine.
The PataBee is made in Switzerland and is deemed organic. Instructions are similar but more specific. Hand wash only nothing warmer than 65 F. Use only soft side of sponge to clean, hang to dry. Avoid raw meat and fish and heat and direct sunlight. Avoid hot food and deep freezing. There's also a warning not to eat them! They also mention they should last 4-6 months and not to worry about detaching wax pieces- that it's normal and why they "only use organic ingredients". It comes with 4 wraps- small (8x8 in), two mediums (11x10 in), and one large (14 x 12 in). They come in solid colors. The downside to this is that they show every crease, corner damage, etc like crazy. I'd rank them in 3rd place overall. They were picky about what they'd stick to, they were the stiffest, and they didn't stick to themselves well, I kept having to re-smoosh them down and I'd come back a few minutes or hours later and they'd all be flared up and unstuck.
The Honey Bee Wraps: The packaging says, 100% organic cotton, instruct to initially wash with a mild detergent with a gentle sponging and rinsing in cold water. They recommend not using for raw meat (which means the surfaces are porous and not easily sterilized), and with proper care they feel they will last up to one year. Like all of these, avoid heat. The 3 pack I got comes with a large (14x14 in), medium (11x10 in), and small (8x8in). My biggest beef with this brand is it leaves a very sticky obvious residue on everything that has to be really scrubbed off! (see picture!)
Prices.... The 4 pack of PataBee Beeswax Wraps was $20.95. The 3 pack of Bee's Wrap wraps was $18.00. The 3 pack of Honey Bee Wrap wraps was $16.47.
Overall thoughts. I would not purchase the ParaBee wraps again. They just didn't function as well. These things are already way more work than saran wrap, press-n-seal, or foil, so a noticeable difference in function and annoyance level was a deal breaker. They also have the shortest expected life-span and show the must wear/damage. The smell isn't pleasant but not a deal breaker. The solid colors are a plus but they were just stiffer and more unwieldy without being thicker and more secure.
First place goes to Honey Bee Wrap wraps, they were also the cheapest. The biggest down side is the residue! That's a major disappointment. It seems to come off easily in the dishwasher but takes a bit of elbow grease with manual dishwashing and looks terrible. However, they were the most secure but took the same amount of work to initially get things stuck securely. The patterns are likely going to be hit-or-miss with people's preferences but not a big deal. Odor is strong.
Close second place is the Bee's Wrap wraps. Pleasant gentle smell, function gets a B rating just after the Honey Bee Wraps. I like the pattern/appearance better. They seem to not show wear, aren't as sticky and don't leave residue. They don't secure liquids and overall not quite as secure but still useable.
A final soap box topic.... as a veterinarian with an especial interest in zoonotic diseases and food safety, I'm sick of meat getting picked on. People act like vegetables are so perfect and earthy and can do no harm. You should be treating all fruits and veggies just like raw meat! E coli, listeria, salmonella, botulism, etc etc can all contaminate vegetables and fruits very easily. Wash them thoroughly! Treat everything that comes in contact with them as needing to be washed! If you're going to put raw/unwashed fruits and veggies in these things, you're probably creating a contaminating surface that you're not going to be able to sanitize as these things are not impervious long term, cannot be subjected to heat much less warmth beyond your hands for a few seconds. Please take care and be safe in the kitchen!
I will give a final lifespan update and review for each of these as I go forward using them longer.
I got the small, medium, and large all neatly packaged in the envelope they arrived in.
Upon opening the package, several things were very obvious:
1) The small one is very small. I'm having a hard time using it for anything other than keeping very small bits of cheese, or to keep a lime/avocado fresh.
2) The medium size is a good size, but not what I would expect from a "medium". Sometimes, I find it is just a wee bit too small for some plates or containers that I would consider medium size.
3) The large size is perfect. It CAN be too big depending on what you're trying to keep, but overall I think it's better to have some excess to better cover your food.
After a couple weeks of use, here are some answers to questions I asked myself while I was thinking of buying this:
(1) How easy are they to clean? Extremely easy. Nothing really sticks to it in the way that food sticks to plastic wrap and, in the rare cases when this does happen, food excess comes right off with cold water. I always dry mine before I store them, so I'm unsure about mold or their capacity to generate it. I wouldn't think this is a problem though- it depends on how you clean them.
(2) Do they really have a smell? Yes, they do.I personally really enjoy the smell of honey, so it hasn't been a problem for me. But if you're averse to honey/sweet smells, then this is not the product for you. The smell does dissipate after a couple of uses though.
(3) Are they easy to store/do you need to do anything special to keep them? Nope! I just clean them, fold them, and store them in a drawer where I keep other similar materials. I do rinse them and re-dry whenever I'm about to use them again though.
(4) Are they sticky enough/are they really a good alternative to other wraps? Thus far, I would say yes. They are the right amount of "sticky" for things to be sealed to perfection. It keeps food fresh, it prevents bad odors, and it reduces the amount of waste I generate.
(5) Are they worth the price? They ARE a little pricey, but I've estimated the savings from other non-reusable products and these wraps come out on top. It's a good bang for your buck if you're going for a sustainable and reusable option. If that's not your goal though, then this might not be the right product for you because it's not cheap.
(6) Do you have to rub it a lot to get it to stick/how hard do you have to work for it to work? Not very hard at all. As advertised, they seal with the warmth of your hands. If you're in a hurry, you can do what I do! I let hot water run for a couple seconds, wash my hands with the hot water, and then seal my containers. The wraps stick almost right away.
Overall, I'd say this is a great product! I will certainly buy again when this particular set needs to be replaced.
didn’t wash them in hot water or scrub them and treated them delicately. I was really excited to use them and now I can’t ! I don’t even know what went wrong...
