I've been looking up how to make donner kebab at home, and the instructions I found suggests to wrap the meat in cling film and boil it - I guess similar to a home made bain-marie.
I didn't realise you could boil/cook with cling film and so have researched more about it and found out that if the cling film is designed for food (and therefore not the shrink wrap they put over cardboard boxes) it is likely to be "safe".
The cling film I have states the following:
...is a professional grade film that is ideal for use on all foods, for wrapping or use in the microwave or freezer.
Naturally I'm concerned about putting cling film into hot water/an oven.
If it matters, the product I'm asking about is Kirkland Signature All Purpose Cling Film
My question is, is there any guidance on what is the maximum temperature the film can withstand? For them to claim it's microwave safe, is there a minimum temperature/length of time it must withstand to claim it's microwave safe? Or is it very much up to the manufacturer to provide this information and there is no guideline/specification.
The suggested duplciate only covers boiling water... cling film (I think) is likely to react differently to different types of heat (water, oven, microwave etc)
