The less shiny side. The shinier side is to rebel the light or heat to avoid the food getting hot.

It doesn't matter. The only reason foil is shinier on one side is because of the way it's manufactured. When it comes off the rollers at the factory, one side just gets shinier than the other. The foil will conduct heat all around either way. There is no difference.

The official word from the Reynolds aluminum people is as follows: "It makes little difference which side of the Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil you use--both sides do the same fine job of cooking, freezing, and storing food.

This is a mistake most people make, the shiny side must be inside so that the heat reflects away from the meat.

Shiney side in, that way the heat from the oven doesn't get reflected.
Answered By: Chariotmender - 11/1/2006
any side it doesn't really matter
Answered By: alex winefly - 11/1/2006
shiny side should be inside as it reflects the heat otherwise you are cooking your oven when wrapping food IE sandwiches shinny side out to reflect heat and keep sandwiches cool
