Tesco Press 'N' Seal Sandwich Bags
Advantages: Quality bags, easy to use seal design, neat and compact storage carton
Disadvantages: None for me
It is no surprise that in our home we go through quite a few sandwich bags. Being that there are only two of us, we still manage to go through at least 3 bags a day that being for my husband's large lunch and for my daily sandwich needs. Whilst I will usually opt for sandwich bags from the cheapest range in the supermarket I was recently caught out with them being out of stock, and so turned to these Tesco Press 'N' Seal Bags instead.
The sandwich bags are neatly packaged in a box which is a great feature in my opinion as it allows the sandwich bags to be neatly stored in a kitchen drawer in between uses. The box is cream in colour and depicts a picture of a sandwich with text to inform you of the 60 bags inside. The box has a perforated square along the edge of the top which can be pulled off during first use to enable a slot through which the bags can be pulled during subsequent use, rather like a tissue box. Inside, each bag is folded neatly one over the over within the box and pulls out easily.
The sandwich bags look pretty standard in my opinion, each being translucent in colour with a green seal at the top of each bag. The bags feel slightly more heavy duty than value bags with none of the cheap flimsy feel that makes putting a finger through the bag an easy reality. They could potentially store four sandwiches inside, although I find that two sandwiches are a better fit. As the name would suggest, the concept of these sandwich bags is that the bag is opened at the seal, the food is placed inside and the seal is then firmly pressed along the line to reseal the bag and keep the food inside airtight.
As these bags are produced by Tesco it is no surprise that they can only be purchased there and they currently retail for £1.57 per box. This makes each bag equate to a cost of around 3p each which isn't much to spend in my opinion.
In my experience these sandwich bags are hardy little storage bags and with a thick layer of plastic encasing my sandwich I feel safe in the knowledge that my sandwiches are protected inside my lunch box. The seal works well, and is sticky enough to hold the sandwiches inside throughout the day ready to open easily at the intended lunchtime. As I only like to store two sandwiches inside each bag this means that we can potentially get through a box of the bags per month although this isn't a big price to pay in my opinion given that the bags are good quality and can be housed neatly inside my kitchen drawer. As the name would suggest these are bags designed purely for sandwiches and in my opinion they are not quite big enough to store other food items. However, cheaper bags can suffice for this purpose leaving my sandwiches happy and secure in their press 'n' seal bags.
Although the bags themselves are not recyclable as far as I can see, the box is and therefore when the last bag has been plucked from the box, you can be safe in the knowledge that the housing can be chucked into the recycling bin.
As a result of the above these bags will be scoring an excellent five stars from me and I would thoroughly recommend them.
I hope this review has been of some help and thanks for reading!
Summary: Ready to use durable bags!
