      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A superb quality product - I can't fault it!

      Let me point out that I've never previously been loyal to any brand of kitchen roll. I always used to buy the cheapest supermarket one, after all, it's only used to wipe up mess. After being used for five seconds, it just ends up in the bin, never to be seen again. I don't buy many branded products on my supermarket shop in general, I mostly opt for supermarket own labels with a few exceptions (like cornflakes!). The cost of the 'value' kitchen roll just seemed to go up and up, until eventually it reached £1.25 for two rolls. That might still sound cheap, but I also thought it had become far worse in quality. I'll be frank, it went from being ok to being terrible - I started to need about ten sheets to mop up even the smallest mess properly, even more for bigger spillages and before I knew it the roll was gone. It seemed false economy to keep on buying it when it had become so poor. The advert for plenty had stuck in my mind - "one sheet does plenty". I saw that Tesco had a pack of two 'fat one' rolls of plenty on sale at a special offer price of £2, the same offer currently on in their stores at the moment. This seemed too good to miss and perfect opportunity to see if it was as good as it sounded. I'd been getting a bit more disgruntled with the value kitchen roll and if this lived up to it's statement then it surely would be much more economical for me to use. I can now say that it did live up to it - a value pack of kitchen roll has never ended up in my trolley again. The plenty kitchen roll comes in many different forms - the one I always pick up is 'the fat one' as you get more sheets per roll. According to the packaging, you receive 50% more sheets per roll than on their standard plenty roll. There is an average of 75 sheets on each roll, together covering an area of over 7.8m2 (I haven't tried this out in the kitchen honestly, it says on the pack!). I find that one roll lasts us just under one week for a family of three (and a cat). As soon as I ripped the first roll from the packaging and before I even took a sheet, I immediately noticed how much better quality it felt to touch. When I did take a sheet from the roll, I couldn't believe how much thicker it was than my previous one, it felt like it was worth far more than the 75p extra that I'd paid. It has a bumpy texture to touch which I assume aids with it's absorbency. The bumpy texture is slightly visible and forms almost a swirling pattern on the sheet. Each sheet measures 22.9cm x 22.8cm and are 2 ply. I just have a standard kitchen roll holder to hold mine and the chunky rolls of plenty fit very nicely on it so it's certainly not too thick to store. The pattern on the roll that I buy is of teapots with a 'plenty' word imprinted every so often. The pattern goes all the way across the top and the bottom of each sheet. This was a new thing for me, as the cheap value range is just plain white! We have lots of spillages in our house - from drinks being knocked over, my baby being sick, the cat knocking his water over, the list is endless. While I'm not completely sold on the 'one sheet does plenty' statement that they have made - as I find I always still need 2 or 3 sheets - I definitely don't need half as many as I used to need previously. I find 2 to 3 sheets of plenty mops up a small to medium spillage. If a whole glass of water gets knocked over, it takes around 5 to mop it up completely - again, a lot less than needed with my previous kitchen roll. The sheets aren't so thick that they're not flexible - they can be folded very easily if desired. Their claims on the packaging are 'mega absorbent', 'rinse and re-use' and 'ultra durable'. I can whole heartedly agree with the kitchen paper being mega absorbent. The absorbency is second to none. The towel still feels quite strong once it's been used across a spillage and absorbs all liquid up fast. I always used to find that the value roll just disintegrated into smaller pieces when mopping up any sort of spillage. I also agree that the towel is 'ultra durable'. With this kitchen roll, the whole sheet stays in tact, I can't think of any time that it's even shown signs of falling apart. This also makes it easier to pick back up once it's soaked up the mess to discard. I have other uses for it too, not just mopping up liquids. I often peel vegetables on top of the kitchen roll to make it easier to collect the peelings when I finish - the kitchen roll has always been strong and never collapsed as I've moved with the pile to remove them. I have no doubts that these two claims are fully deserved. But, the 'rinse and re-use' claim, although not something I have ever tried, is something I do doubt a little, even though I think it's fantastic quality overall and worth every penny it costs. I just don't see how this is possible with any kitchen roll after mopping up a major spillage in the home. I wouldn't purposely buy it for this quality, but I suppose it would be worth a go to see if it's true nonetheless. I also use some sheets of plenty in the bathroom to mop up after a shower or round the sink to keep watermarks at bay. It should be noted however that the kitchen roll is too thick to be flushed down the toilet - it even shows a picture on the packaging to this effect. I just save mine until I've finished and throw in the bin as normal. I have to rate the plenty kitchen roll 5 stars, it's a fantastic product available at a reasonable price and mops up all spillages with very minimal effort. Even at full price in Tesco, £2.99 I wouldn't hesitate to buy a pack. It's now one of very few brand names added to my shopping list. So long value kitchen roll! Thanks for reading :o)

        The best kitchen roll

        I use a lot of kitchen roll at least a roll every two days. I have an addiction to cleaning things with it. I used to buy Asda Smartprice of Tesco Value kitchen towel which was ok. I now buy my Plenty in Costco when it is on offer. Most recently I got 24 rolls for £12. You will find it is frequently on offer in the supermarkets currently Tesco have it for £3.21 for 6 rolls. You can get Plenty in lots of different designs and they also offer a thicker roll. I tend to stick to the plain rolls. The rolls are average size. The difference between Plenty and other brands is the thickness of the sheets. I use Plenty for all sorts at home but mainly cleaning my worktops. I don't like dishcloths as I think they harbour germs. No matter how much antibacterial spray I use on the surface I only need one sheet to wipe all of the counters. I also find this useful for cleaning up spill having a young daughter we often have yogurt and juice launched from the highchair. It is also good for cleaning the windows leaving them streak free. The packet also says you can wring out the sheet and use it again. I have to be honest I have never done this as it's cheap enough to use a few sheets. Compared to other brands I think this is the best. The sheets don't break up and are very absorbant perfect for mopping up spills quickly. I always buy this it's great value when it's on offer.

        Great kitchen towel

        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A household essential ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I always have a roll of kitchen towel in the go in my house - for me it is a household essential! This is partly due to the fact that I have a three year old - as well as just needing something quick to wipe up everyday spills and mess. Now Plenty kitchen towels aren't the cheapest around but I picked these up when they were on offer recently. Currently in Asda, it costs £1.50 for two rolls which I don't think is too bad - although is obviously more expensive than the store's own brands. There are different versions of Plenty kitchen towel available but the ones I am currently using are plain white with a slight raised bobble design. I do prefer plain kitchen towel so this works well for me! ~~~~~~~~~~~ Jack of all trades ~~~~~~~~~~~ I have used these just today for several different jobs. Firstly I used these to wipe clean my kitchen worktops after spraying them with kitchen cleaner. They did a great job of lifting dirt and I was impressed that just two sheets let my wipe down all my surfaces without any wear or tear on the sheets themselves. I also used this after a pan of water boiled over on my hobs. Once they'd cooled, I used two sheets to soak up the water that had spilled - again I was really pleased with how well these mopped up the spills. Finally I used these on my little girl's hands and face after a big bowl of spaghetti. I used this dry the first time which of course didn't work, but a few drops of water did the job as well as a wet wipe would have. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Great multi-purpose wipes! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ All in all I highly recommend these wipes and I find I use them for all sorts of jobs around the house. Although these are pricier than others, I think it is worth the extra money as they are really effective and don't seem to tear whatever I put them through! So on this occasion I would say these are worth the extra cash!

          a great kitchen towel for emergancy spills

          I like to keep a roll of kitchen roll in the house for little spills and to help with the cooking, and I think that Plenty is the best roll I have used by far. Plenty is much stronger than most other kitchen rolls that I have used, I find that it does not break up when it becomes wet as quickly, meaning it can be used much longer and you do not have to use as many sheets per spill. I find that because I do not need to use as many sheets per spill on average of Plenty, that I do not have to buy it as often as when I am using cheaper brands of kitchen roll, this almost makes up for it being a bit more expensive than other brands that aren't as good of quality. One thing that Plenty advertises is that it is able to be rinsed out and re-used, I do not know of any other kitchen towels that are capable of doing this. I found that Plenty is able to be rinsed out and re-used once or twice when I am using them, however sometimes if the towel is saturated and you are a bit rough with the rinsing out, it just breaks apart and isn't much good to re-use. Though I will admit that rinsing and re-using them works with moderate spills and they are much more durable than any other kitchen towel I have used in the past. You can buy Plenty with different prints on it to make it look nicer in the kitchen and more fun for the kids they are using them, and also you can buy plain white. I like to buy the printed towels usually as it makes them a little more interesting looking. You can buy Plenty in Tesco for £5.00, this gives you 8 rolls, I think that this is quite good value because in our house 8 rolls would last around a month. I will be continuing to buy Plenty because cheaper brands of kitchen roll actually work out more expensive per month as I use much more sheets of them as they are not as strong or re-usable. Sometimes Plenty sheets go on offer, so it is worth looking out for them in the future. Overall I think that Plenty is a great brand of kitchen roll and has many great uses, it is much more durable than other kitchen towels and they usually are able to be rinsed and re-used and last much longer than other brands. They are a little expensive, but they do the job well and last much longer than other brands. Overall I would give Plenty 4 out of 5 stars. *also on ciao under lorrainek90

            Great value for money

            Plenty Kitchen rolls do a fantastic job at absorbing all kitchen spillages I always find, from milk to water to fruit juice, etc. They are also good at holding teabags and other bits of soggy food without the paper going all drippy and limp and then breaking off like the other cheaper brands do before you manage to run off to the bin. You can buy them in either packs of two, four or three. The bigger the pack then the more economical but these kitchen rolls tend to be quite a bit more expensive than the shops own brand, like Tesco or Asda for instance. I have bought them recently in a pack of three which cost me £3.68 but sometimes they can be found on special ffer, but not very much. They are a good size sheet I find, there are lots of sheets on one roll, they are super thick absorbency and also seem to be a bit taller than the average kitchen roll I find. You can buy them either plain or with a nice border pattern, the choice is up to you but I don't see any point in a pattern if its just being used to mop us the mess. Although they are strong they are still very soft and I also have used them to blow my nose on when I've run out of tissues with no nasty sore nose. Greatly recommended.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Recommended.

            Each pack of Plenty Kitchen Rolls contains two rolls. Each pack costs £1.99 from Sainsburys - or alternatively you can get two packets for £3.00 (which equates to £1.50 each). I think this is really good value and although there are cheaper kitchen rolls on the market, I think sometimes it can be a false economy to invest in a cheaper product that doesn't necessarily have the quality. The packaging is nothing to write home about. It's just make up of clear cellophane and has the Plenty logo emblazoned on the front of the packaging. There is nothing about the packaging that would make this jump off the shelf at me, and the only reason that I purchased this the first time was a special offer. But having said that, clearly aesthetic design isn't really that important for a kitchen roll! The kitchen roll itself is a plain white colour and so would go in any kitchen. There is, on average, at least 60 sheets per roll - which seems like a good amount to me. Although I haven't actually counted how many sheets there are, I have no reason to disbelieve this number because it does sound about right in terms of how long it lasts. Each sheet feels fairly thick and substantial and has the consistency thin cloth rather than tissue. Certainly, my experience is that the sheets are very absorbent and therefore you don't need to use many sheets at a time - hence it can be worth spending a little more to get something that means it lasts longer. The sheets do not break up when wet and so they are relatively strong - which is a definite bonus. They do have a little bit of texture to them and so there is some purchase when you're wiping something up - or indeed drying something. Overall, I recommend Plenty Kitchen Roll and think it's a decent and effective product.

            a must for your kitchen

            I have to have a good stock of kitchen roll in my house as I hate how dishcloths can smell after only one or two uses so quite often I prefer to use kitchen towel as dispose of it as I go. Having tried less expensive brands, I do keep coming back to Plenty (formerly Bounty) as one of the better ones on the market. A two pack of Plenty costs around £1.86 but you can also buy four for £3.68 and eight for £4.50 packs (based on Tescos). If you fancy it you can also purchase Plenty with fun prints on or even ones with different border designs (to fit in with your home) lol! The plastic packaging states that they now have new dura lock with an arrow pointing to the many small indentations on the sheets that obviously aren't there just to make a pretty pattern!! The blurb on the back of the plastic packaging states 'Thanks to its advanced paper technology, Plenty offers you excellent absorbencyand durability (even when wet!)so you can handle spills effectively. Plenty lasts so long without shredding - you will be surprised how long one single sheet stays intact and for how many purposes you can use Plenty! Now although the packaging also displays lots of places you can use these sheets, i.e. pots, pans, taps, cookers, windows, car, barbeque etc. I tend to use these for everyday spills and cleaning. I also use one of these dampened to wipe strawberries or other fruits before serving. Each sheet's specifications are: 2 rolls - 2-ply tissue, average sheets 50 per roll. Roll length is 11.4m, total area per pack is 5.2sqm and the sheet size is 229mm x 228mm. MY THOUGHTS I find this to be an indispensible product to have in the kitchen. I frequently wipe over my kitchen surfaces with these and find that they do just as good a job as your average dishcloth. Also I have been able to reuse these during a larger cleaning job and you can rinse out any cleaning product and/or dirt and wring it out and carrying on using it without it tearing or shredding at all. Even if you are having to rub quite hard at stubborn stains the sheet will stay whole. The second use I use this most for is for cleaning up spills. I have an 8 and 7 year old and there are still the odd accidents whereby juice or milk get spilled and these are excellent for taking up most of the liquid which helps prevent staining if you get there quick enough. Again you can wring out the liquid and reapply to the spill before needing a new sheet. Another great use I have for these is to fold them up and run under cold water and use them as a cold compress on any grazes bumps or bruises my children happen to be sporting which tends to happen on quite a regular basis!! I like the fact that you can use and dispose of these once you have finshed with them and because they are so durable and absorbent, one roll should last you quite a long while. I also like the fact that each sheet is clean. I tend to worry about the germs lurking on used dishcloths so this gives me peace of mind as well. This product has apparently been approved by the Good Housekeeping Institute in 2011 so if you want a recommendation other than mine I guess that is as good as any. All in all I would recommend this product because it is highly absorbent, you can rinse and re-use if necessary and these are very durable. Please note that the packaging is recyclable and these should not be disposed of down the loo! Thanks for reading. x also on ciao

            Great towel with many uses

            We seem to go through quite a lot of kitchen roll in our house what with a baby and young daughter there always seems to be one spillage or another. I had originally tried the cheaper versions of kitchen roll but they just weren't capable of cleaning the windscreen and wipers on our car which is one job my husband uses kitchen roll for and so they simply weren't good enough. Plenty is available from all supermarkets and you can sometimes pick them up in discount stores such as Home Bargains, a two roll pack costs around £1.80 and so is quite a bit more expensive than the shops own brands. You can also buy plenty in 4 rolls, 6 rolls and 12 roll packs the latter being the best value but who wants to buy 12 at a time. I only bought these as I managed to pick up a 4 pack for £2 on special offer which was fantastic value. The kitchen rolls are packaged in a clear plastic packet which is packed tightly around the rolls to hold them in place side by side, the pack has the word plenty across the front in large black letters with a series of circles behind the words in yellow, orange, red and green. The pack is easy to open by pushing your finger through into one of the cardboard tubes which hold the towel and then ripping the pack open from the hole you've made. The towels are attached to each other by perforations and are easy to pull apart, the towels are white in colour with a dimple effect on them and feel thick and strong. I have used this product for many different jobs and they stand out a mile from the value range as you actually can wring the towel out and use again just like the advert shows. The main thing is that my husband can clean the windscreen and wipers on the cars without the towels ripping and therefore he doesn't use half a roll to try and do the job. I am giving plenty 4/5 and the only thing is drops on is the price as it is nearly 40% more expensive than the value brand.

            Very satisfied with the product

            Kitchen paper is pretty much a staple product in my house with me being such a spillage klutz and my fiance being an unbelievably messy cook! We used to buy the cheapest, usually a Supermarket value own brand, but quickly came to understand that the value became less as we were using five or six sheets a time for the smallest spillages. They would tear and over-saturate so easily that we became frustrated. So I moved up to buying known brands which were on offer. Plenty, which I've learned from the television adverts used to be Bounty, was the first one I bought with my new philosophy in mind. It was reduced price at Tesco- two rolls for £1.27 when they should have been £1.87. While this was much more than I was used to paying, it was okay with me if the product worked. I got to try out the kitchen roll that day. The sheets were thick and strong and perforated well between each. The sheets were highly absorbant and did not rip or tear when used. They soaked up a lot of liquid per sheet and I only needed to use a couple of sheets for a fairly large spill. I was very impressed with these kitchen towels and would definitely consider buying them again.

            A lovely kitchen roll, especially the ones with the patterns

            I recently was out for my weekly food shop, and on my list was most of the essentials, such as foil, bags, toilet roll and kitchen paper. As I did not want my bill to rocket up, I looked round my some deals. I was just going to go with ASDAs own as it usually serves me right, but this one was offer for £1, which I thought was great value for such a good brand. The product --> There are 2 large sized kitchen rolls in a thin plastic covering, with a huge logo on the front of 'Plenty'. I got ones where the paper is textured, but still quite soft. It has a flower pattern on each sheet, which if anything helps to keep the kitchen decorated! It does admittedly look much better than my usual white ones. These do have a lot of quality within them, they feel very strong and tough. Having pets does mean there is always something to clean up, whether it is muddy paws, or a spilt drink from one of us. I find that these generally picks up liquids in only a couple of sheets. So what the brand stands for 'One sheet does plenty' is really it! They are very absorbent too, they really know what customers want. Having a look round on the internet there always appears to be a 50p offer coupon too, which works with most supermarkets! In fact I would recommend looking round on their website as it is actually quite fun and helpful! The cost --> These are now £1.50 in ASDA, but this is an offer. They usually retail about £2 or more. However, they sell larger packets too, such as in 6's and 8's, which are usually on offer too about £3-4. If like me you get through quite a lot these are in fact good value, because they don't require pulling off an awful lot to pick up stains! I would recommend these definitely to you, whether it is to clean up after kids or animals, even yourself! Great product, and even though more expensive than some, cheaper in the long run.

            Worth every penny , a cracking product

            As i have been in the factory in Manchester that makes Plenty and in a lot of other factories that make similar kitchen roll i can categorically say this product is without doubt the best on the market. It is both stronger and is a better "soaker upper" than other similar brands and is definitely worth paying the extra for. As a discerning user , i use nothing else. ps. the reason it changed its name from Bounty to Plenty was that the company who originally owned the factory (Procter and Gamble) sold the European part of the business to a Swedish Company called SCA in 2008/9. P+G kept the Bounty trade name which is still used in the USA, so SCA invented the new name "Plenty" which is used in the UK. Same applies to their Toilet tissue , used to be Charmin , its now called Cushelle, same stuff different name.

            One sheet does all

            Over the years I have tried and used, numerous types of kitchen towels. Some were good, some were bad, and some were just plain useless. Nowadays I use nothing except Plenty. This is the updated name for the original Bounty kitchen towels. I have no idea why the name was changed, because the plenty towels are the very same as the original bounty ones. Each sheet is white in colour and is 2-ply. There are fifty sheets in one roll and each sheet measures approximately 228mm x 228mm. There is an embossed pattern throughtout the roll, with the usual perforated tear line. I use kitchen towels for a variety of tasks around the house, and not just for mopping up spills. Each sheet of plenty feels nice and thick and quite luxurious. I find that I can use just one sheet of plenty, for any cleaning task. One sheet will mop up spilled tea or juice without a problem. I like the fact that one single sheet does not go all soggy after mopping up the tiniest of spills. This was something that used to happen with other kitchen towels. I was always using two or three sheets for each task. I find these kitchen towels are great for wiping windows, mirrors, furniture, anything in the kitchen, paintwork and anywhere else that needs wiping. I use them dampened to clean grubby little finger marks on my doors. I also keep a roll in the car. The list of uses is endless. It does state on the packaging that these kitchen towels can be rinsed and reused. This is something that I do not tend to do, but I did try it out to see what happened. And yes the sheet was still intact and could be used again. This is something I do not think I will do, but if you are watching the pennies, it can be done. Plenty is not the cheapest kitchen towel on the market and it costs around £1.25 per roll. When you consider that you only need one sheet at a time I think this makes them economical to use. The supermarkets sometimes have them on offer and I tend to stock up then.

              A GOOD KITCHEN PAPER

              I have recently tried out the Plenty kitchen paper and this is my review. Plenty is a brand that I have only used once before but back then it was called 'Bounty' kitchen paper roll and so the name has changed to Plenty now. The kitchen paper is usually a bit dear for what I want to pay for kitchen paper but my local mini market often has special buys on at this time of year and one of them recently was for Plenty kitchen paper. The pack of two rolls cost me £1.20 which is around the same price as what I would normally spend for a double pack of kitchen roll from a more budget brand so I did not mind paying this amount for the twin pack of Plenty rolls. The packaging is quite plain and is a plain see through clear plastic wrapper with the name of the Plenty kitchen roll on the front and the brand logo which is quite a bright colour design in green and yellow. I do not think that the packaging is very nice looking and I do not think it would catch my eye to much in the shop. The Plenty kitchen roll is a bit thicker than the cheaper brands of kitchen paper I usually buy and I can tell this even looking at the roll and when I take the kitchen roll from the wrapper. The thickness of the rolls makes me think they will be very good at soaking up spills. I use kitchen roll for things like cleaning and little jobs around the house. I also use it for food type purpose such as when I am frying food I like to drain any extra oil from the food before I serve it and kitchen roll is very good for this. Any mops and spills are also cleaned up with kitchen roll and so I do not like to run out of it at home as I use it most days. The Plenty kitchen roll seemed to be more or less the same as any other type of kitchen roll I would use when it came to things like draining oily food. I thought it worked the same as any other type of kitchen roll I would use for this. When using it on a pool of water or a small spill though I thought it was a lot better than cheaper kitchen rolls and I think this is cos it is so much thicker than other types of kitchen roll I would usually buy. The Plenty kitchen roll soaked up any liquid very quickly and easily and it seemed to hold more liquid than cheaper brands do. I thought that the Plenty kitchen roll was very good when I used it to clean my mirrors and it was so thick and soft that it did not rip or tear which is what would happen if I used a cheaper kind of kitchen paper so I was pleased about that. The Plenty kitchen roll was very easy to tear from the roll and the lines between each sheet were marked well and I could see them easily. This meant that each sheet came off easily when I pulled it and cheaper brands sometimes rip and tear when I try to do this. I thought that the Plenty kitchen roll was good quality and I liked how it was easy to use and kept my house chores easy to do and did not cause me to use to much kitchen roll cos it did not rip and tear to easily like other brands I have used before that are cheaper. I would not pay to much for the Plenty kitchen roll cos it ends up in the bin and is only really used for house chores and cleaning but if it was on offer again or I saw it on discount I would buy it again to use around the house. I would suggest giving the Plenty kitchen paper a try out and I think most people would be pleased with the quality of the kitchen roll just as long as you know you will pay a bit more for it than other brands of kitchen roll!

              Good value, worth consideration over home brand.

              Im sure a lot of you are familiar with Plenty by now. If not, I would be quite confident you have heard of Bounty kitchen roll and those wierd (and wonderful!) adverts on tv! A rebranding was undertaken of Bounty and we are left with Plenty now, it would be interesting to know why they changed the name. Perhaps it was to do with a particular cocnut based chocolate bar? Answers on a postcard please. Plenty kitchen roll comes in various sized packs and the most common is the 2 pack which has 2 generously sized rolls of kitchen paper. The 2-ply sheets are adequate to deal with spillages and there are approximately 60 sheets per roll. The kitchen roll is very soft to the touch and feels strong and I find it holds up well when wet which is a major positive with this kind of product. The sheets are very absorbant also, and they feel quite thick and good quality. Obviously when it comes to something you are going to throw away, you dont want to spend a fortune on them. The 2 packs can be picked up very cheaply - usually £1 per pack when on offer in supermarkets. The pack itself speaks a lot of truth. The brand aims to get across in their advert that the sheets are very absorbant and stand up well to spillages, and their packaging contains the words 'So durable 1 sheet does the whole job'. Often, with the cheaper brands, i find that I am having to use a couple or even three sheets of kitchen roll to soak up a spillage but the Plenty sheets are thick and absorbant and do the job efficiently. Overall, I am impressed with Plenty kitchen roll and their adverts are not a gimmick, they can back up the claims aswell. At the cost they can be favourably selected over home brand products because they do a better job and are very cheap. Plenty also have decorated kitchen roll and 'fat' rolls along with a number of other pack sizes. I would recommend Plenty and suggest next time you see them on offer in your local supermarket that you think about buying some and giving them a try.

              Great quality

              Kitchen roll is one of those things that when I have it, I use it constantly. It is so handy in the kitchen for so many different reasons and since having my children it has become pretty much indespensible. I tend to usually buy the supermarket value range kitchen roll, and to be honest I have been pretty happy with these rolls both in terms of price and quality. They do the job adequately without being too pricey, my reasoning is that I don't want to pay over the odds for something that will be mainly used for mopping up spillages. Every now and then however when the premium brands are on special offer, I will try them. Recently I spotted that this Plenty Kitchen Towel was on special offer so I decided to give it a whirl. Plenty was previously branded as Bounty and has a distinctive bright coloured logo featuring the product name in black. The standard cost of a pack containg two rolls is £1.84 which I feel is really pricey and significantly more than the supermarket's offering which are around the £1 mark. I had quite high expectations from this kitchen roll as it normally costs so much more than the stuff I normally buy and as soon as I opened the packet, the roll felt much thicker and stronger. The real test for me came a couple hours later when my bonkers two year old spilt her milk over the floor. I reached for the kitchen roll straight away and began mopping up the mess. This stuff was seriously absorbant, the spillage just disappeared before my eyes and soaked into the towel. The paper didn't fall apart in a soggy mess and did the job far better than I could have expected. I think this product is of a fantastic quality but I have to say I don't think you get all that much per roll. I seemed to go through it quite quickly and for that reason, I can't really afford to buy this product at full price... will just have to keep my eye out for the special offers.
