Wax Coated Paper is commonly used in cooking for its non-stick properties, and wrapping food for storage, such as cookies, as it keeps water out or in. It is also used in arts and crafts. This paper's best use is lining countertops and tables before rolling out pie crusts or kneading bread, to prevent a mess. Wax Coated Paper can also be used to wrap food for cold storage or even line a pan for making something like fudge. The thin coating of wax keeps the paper product from disintegrating when it comes into contact with moisture, like grease or water. This paper used for cooking or baking typically uses a mid-melt wax.
