Okay, Reynolds non-stick foil seems to be pretty good. But it ain't cheap. Anybody try washing it off and using it again?

Yes - I do as long as it is just crumbs that I am washing off. For example if I heat/cook chicken nuggets I will wipe down the foil and re-use. If I spill food stuff on it, then I probably would not re-use it.

Not really, but I only use foil when there is grease involved. I would if I did it different, but I use cast iron for reheating pizza, nuggets and stuff that I could reuse it for.

And I use really cheap and thin foil. Not sure I could wash it.

I'd be concerned about the non-stick coating deteriorating and migrating into the food. I just bought Crate & Barrel's version of a silpat sheet last year and like it a lot. And, I've seen some wire reinforced silicone crisping racks with the silicone totally encasing the wire.

I've been experimenting with a GreenPan with ceramic coating instead of the traditional teflon nonstick coating. Aside from the buttermilk pecan pralines which I had to jack hammer off the pan, everything else has been super easy to clean. The praline situation reminded me of the caution not to spill sugary foods or candy on the ceramic cooktop as it can fuse with the cooktop and pit it, or worse. I had the big idea to let the buttermilk praline mixture cool into one Texas size praline and then break it into smaller pieces to save time. And, I think it did exactly what was warned about in regard to the cooktop. I think that the extremely hot sugar mix tried to fuse with the ceramic coating on the GreenPan.
