DEXTER, MO (KFVS) -

If you turn on any kind of TV, you're sure to see the infomercial for this week's product: Wraptastic.

It's supposedly an easier way to rip off plastic wrap or foil without tearing it.

Kendra Lewis and I have some trouble getting the plastic wrap to tear off in the gadget, Wraptastic. Supposedly, it makes it easier to rip off foil or wrap by not tearing or offering jagged edges like you often get from the perforated edge on most boxes.

Eventually, once we put some muscle into it, the wrap tears off, but it still takes me holding this gadget down to get it to work.

"I think the roll is too big."

We also find it's not necessarily one size fits all.  The adjusters do adapt to this bigger, economy roll of foil, but we suggest if you buy this, you'd better just stick with the basic size roll of foil because the bigger ones just don't fit in here as well.

"I'm a little disappointed."

If you buy this, you'd better have enough counter or drawer space to house Wraptastic.

"I wouldn't have it sitting out. It's way too big."

Plus, you'd better plan on buying a Wraptastic for each of your rolls of foil, plastic wrap and maybe even wax paper. Otherwise, you'll constantly change out the rolls in this, and at that point, it'd be faster just to rip it off the box whether it has a clean edge or not, in our opinion.

"B minus. It worked.  It's just not as handy as I thought it would be. It could work better."

The $20 Wraptastic isn't fantastic. It barely slips by with a B- on this Does it Work test.
