Marinating Meat - Covered or Not?

So I often marinate meat in a shallow dish in the fridge for just an hour or two...Is it necessary too cover the dish with plastic wrap? Is it about keeping the meat from drying out or absorbing flavours from other stuff in the fridge? TIA.

You can always use a ziplock bag for marinading as well. I always cover my meats when marinading.

Practice. Do it over. Get it right.

Mostly, I want people to be as happy eating my food as I am cooking it.

Tupperware or the equivalent. The top seals tightly and I don't feel wasteful about the wrap.
