About Red Copper Wrapper
Made of high-grade polypropylene, Red Copper Wrapper is a countertop dispenser that allows you to pull just the right amount of your favorite wrap, whether plastic, foil, or wax paper, without waste.
Using the spring-loaded ends, Red Copper Wrap also promises to make changing between rolls a snap; just open the top, load the wrap, and you’re ready to go. When you’re pulling, the non-slip grips keep it firmly in place, while the one-touch cutter is safely tucked away and won’t even pop a balloon.
Then, when you’re finished, Red Copper Wrapper stores in the same amount of space as traditional boxes, even with its 200-foot capacity. And if it happens to get dirty, cleaning Red Copper Wrapper can be as easy as popping it in the dishwasher.
All of us have frustratingly struggled with wax paper, foil, or plastic wrap at some point. But if its commercial can be taken at face value, Red Copper Wrapper certainly seems like it could provide a simple, perhaps elegant, solution.
While we didn’t test Red Copper Wrapper ourselves, we’ll help you decide whether or not it will deliver based on our observations and research, or if the competition might provide better overall value.
Speaking of which, let’s begin with price.
How Much Does Red Copper Wrapper Cost?
Red Copper Wrapper is available through two different offers:

- Double Offer – Two Red Copper Wrapper rolls, plus two bonus extra large rolls of foil and two extra large rolls of plastic: $29.98

How does this price compare to Red Copper Wrapper’s competition? Is there even such a thing?
Red Copper Wrapper vs. the Kuhn Rikon Fast Wrap & Other Food Wrap Dispensers
If you search online for terms like “foil dispenser,” “plastic wrap dispenser,” “wax paper dispenser,” or even the generic “kitchen wrap dispenser,” you’ll find dozens of different options in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and designs that will do just that—dispense rolled material.
At the time of our research, many of these featured bulkier, more traditional designs, similar to countertop or wall-mounted paper towel dispensers. The majority were priced between $20 and $40.
We did encounter several functionally similar choices to Red Copper Wrapper, like the Dirza Food Wrap Dispenser ($8), SODIAL Plastic Wrap Cutter ($9), and Wraptastic Food Wrap Dispenser ($17).
We even found high-volume options like the Kencut 3 Commercial Film/Foil Dispenser ($45; 3,000ft) and multi-function choices like the Joyoldelf Versatile 4 in 1 Kitchen Roll Holder & Dispenser ($21; a combination of foil, plastic wrap, and paper towel dispenser, in addition to a spice shelf).
When searching for these other options, we learned that the Kuhn Rikon Fast Wrap seemed to be designed almost identically to Red Copper Wrapper—even down to the color, the spring-loaded ends, and tucked-away blade. For comparison, here’s the Rikon’s one-minute commercial:
Red Copper Wrapper was too new at the time of our research to have garnered any online customer feedback, although we found several customer reviews for the Kuhn version on popular sites like Amazon and Sur La Table.
Overall, Fast Wrap appeared to come with mostly positive customer feedback, with the most common compliment citing ease of use, while several others claimed it didn’t work as well as expected. Granted, this is a different product from a different manufacturer, but given their clearly similar designs, we think this could be valuable information when making a decision.
From a price perspective, the Kuhn Rikon was priced at $24.99, which was about $5 more than Red Copper Wrapper. However, when you factor in Red Copper Wrapper’s $7.99 S&H charge (which is non-refundable), it comes in slightly higher.
If you’re looking to achieve the same basic function, is there anything else that should be on your radar?
Are There DIY Options Similar to Red Copper Wrapper?
Browsing online for different DIY foil/wax paper/plastic wrap dispensers, we found several low-cost alternatives, including:
- Taking advantage of the end locks built into standard boxes
- Using stick-on-hooks placed inside cabinet doors (you can even keep it in the box to utilize the built-in blade)
- Repurposing a multi-roller wall-mounted unit
- Other miscellaneous tips and hacks
Will these provide all the same features as Red Copper Wrapper in the same format? Certainly not. However, depending on your kitchen setup and specific needs, they might provide the most bang for your buck.
Our Bottom Line About Red Copper Wrapper
Speaking of bang for your buck, our goal here at HighYa is to present what we learned during our research and leave the final decision up to you about whether or not a product will deliver value. After all, this isn’t determined only by price, but also your specific circumstances.
With this framework in mind, along with the Kuhn Rikon Fast Wrap (which is the original, by all appearances), Red Copper Wrapper is the only polycarbonate (a type of plastic) option intended to work on a countertop, with spring-loaded ends, rubber feet, a tucked-in blade, and a 200-foot roll capacity.
Red Copper Wrapper is also priced about the same as the Kuhn, although it seems you’ll lose more in nonrefundable S&H with the former should you decide to request a refund.
On the other hand, if you need something that can handle a higher volume of wrapping, you might need to bump up to a commercial model (which will also likely bump up your budget). If the price is your primary factor, some DIY options can be set up for just a couple dollars.
If you decide to give Red Copper Wrapper a try and aren’t satisfied, Telebrands/Bulbhead stands behind it with a 30-day refund policy. Just remember that you’ll lose a not-insignificant amount of money in shipping charges.
