“ Brand: Asda / Product Type: Kitchen Roll „
I was shopping in Asda last month and decided to pick up Asda's own brand of kitchen roll to save a little money on kitchen roll as I usually buy Plenty and it costs more than double.
I usually have a roll of kitchen roll in the house as I like to use it to clean up spills and accidents and also in the kitchen to help with the cooking.
I have found that this kitchen roll is quite good for cleaning up spills and is very absorbant, it is quite strong and can hold quite a bit of liquid without falling apart. I am very pleased with this kitchen roll and think that I will buy it from now on to keep saving money.
I would not say that this kitchen roll is as good of quality as the other more expensive kitchen rolls, but it definitely does the job in my house.
One thing I have found about this kitchen roll is that it cannot be rinsed and re-used again like other more expensive brands. However this Asda brand of kitchen roll is much cheaper, so I didn't expect it to be as good as the expensive brands.
This kitchen roll is made from 100% recycled paper, this is a very good quality for me as it is nice that my kitchen roll is economically friendly.
You can buy this kitchen roll in Asda for around £1.30 for 2 rolls, this is a really good price as Plenty kitchen roll usually costs around £3 for 2 rolls, though in some places it can be much more expensive. On average I would use a few extra sheets than when I am using this kitchen roll than Plenty kitchen roll, but it still ends up cheaper in the long run to buy this cheaper kitchen roll.
Overall I am really pleased with this kitchen roll and plan to buy it again, it is much cheaper than bigger brand names such as Plenty and although it is not quite as strong, it gets the job done just as well in my opinion. Overall I would give this kitchen roll 4 out of 5 stars.

I like to try supermarket own brand products and when I saw this on offer for £1.00 for two rolls I thought I would give it a go.
Kitchen roll is essential in most households. It is always on hand for those emergencies, such as spilt milk. It can also be used to clean with and even as napkins!
A good multi-purpose item and one of my necessities that I buy regularly but I'm not loyal to any brand. I like to try new products!
A two pack usually costs around £1.39 but they often on offer for £1.00. They are sold in Asda stores.
The Asda Kitchen towels often come with novelty designs on, whether fruit designs or just plain white. I chose the fruit designed sheets as I thought they were quite fun and novelty.
A roll of Asda towels consists of on average, 60 sheets. The dimensions of each sheet are 229x228mm. The sheets are really thick and luxurious. They soak up plenty of liquid and are extremely absorbent. The sheets have little indentations that act as pockets so they keep hold of liquid; the advantage of this means that you need less sheets and you can soak up more mess quicker.
I like the Asda sheets and for a supermarket own brand, I was surprised about the quality.
Unlike other cheaper alternatives, you only need a couple of sheets rather than half a roll. It is really absorbent and soaks up so much more than other towels. . You can even wring out the paper without it tearing!!
I use the towels when cooking to dab off excess oil from fried foods, trying to make them a little bit healthier. The paper stays in one piece and doesn't rip or stick to the food!
It is strong so that when you clean with it, it doesn't rip in my hands and means that you press on with it and really give it some elbow grease.
It feels quite soft and I have even used it for blowing my nose on and as emergency toilet paper!
I will definitely choose this kitchen roll again. It is extremely versatile.
I buy this kitchen roll most weeks, or whenever I do my food shopping in Asda. I think kitchen roll is such an expensive item to buy! Even this Asda smart price kitchen towel is around £1.15 for just two rolls, and we always go through at least four in a week in our house!
This kitchen towel comes in the really basic Asda smart price packaging just clear, and green just like the picture, so you can see the product inside. The rolls inside are just white, and they do feel very thin, however they are perfect enough for what I use them for, wiping things up in the kitchen, wiping hands etc.
They are great for general use, they don't tend to rip easily, but aren't that thick. These kitchen towels only let me down when you spill a drink etc, it does not soak up the liquid well at all! You need near enough the hole roll to clear up any spillages like that! They are just not absorbent enough at all, and wouldn't be any good if you have kids!
There isn't much kitchen towel on the rolls either, they get used up so quickly which is a shame. You need to use so much of the towels when you do use them, a family could easily get through one of these a day! Although they have started doing a jumbo size roll, you get three in a pack for £1.70, and these are a lot better value for your money. They really do last a lot longer, and the three last all week for £1.70 where as we were buying and using up 4 normal ones for £2.30 all together, so it is better to buy the jumbo ones, you do get a lot more for your money.
I would say there's probably nearly double on a jumbo roll that a normal one. They are no difference in quality though. These towels are soft but not too soft, they aren't rough, they are a nice texture.
Overall, I always buy smart price over leading brands, they are so much cheaper and the quality isn't that bad for the price!
*First off, Dooyoo have put up the wrong picture - this review is about the standard ASDA kitchen roll, the pic is the Smartprice version.
I used to always buy ASDA's Smartprice kitchen roll as it was very good quality for the price. Then one week I bought some and found that they had changed it (they did this with a lot of the smartprice range, I don't know if anyone else noticed?) and the new version was very thin and near enough useless. I decided to go up a brand and have been using the normal ASDA brand kitchen roll.
The kitchen roll is from the Chosen by You range (ASDA seem to be labelling loads of its products with this Chosen by You stamp recently), and is described as strong and absorbent and ideal for mopping up spills and wiping surfaces. You can buy this in either plain or patterned (the patterned one has pictures of vegetables around the border, and on ASDA's website there is also a recycled version, although I do not recall seeing that in the shop. You can get it in a pack of two or a pack of six, and I went for the pack of 2 in plain white.
The kitchen roll is reasonably fat, and it says on the pack that there is an average of 50 sheets per roll. It has a dimpled swirly pattern and I actually quite like the swirls. It reminded me a little of the Lotus Thirst Pockets, and I liked the design as I thought it looked like I'd paid out for a more expensive brand!
Now where possible I try not to use kitchen roll. I always have some in the house, but I feel it's expensive for what it is and not good for the environment. The main use I have for it is to mop up spills, and I find that it does this really well. It doesn't disintegrate on contact with water as many do, and is fairly absorbent and mops up any spillages really well, and I can usually get away with just one or two sheets per use. There's that advert (I forget which brand it's for) where they wring the kitchen towel out, and you certainly can't do that with this one, but it's still strong and absorbent enough for most spills.
Another thing I use this kitchen towel for is wiping grease out of the base of pans before I wash them, as obviously I want to limit the amount of grease that manages to go down the drain. They're perfect for this use, and absorb oil just as well as they do water.
The pack of two kitchen rolls cost £1.28 and the pack of six costs £3.00 which means that it works out slightly cheaper to buy the bigger pack.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this kitchen roll. I find it to be good quality and I found the claims on the pack which say it is strong and absorbent are both true. I've bought it a few times now and I'll continue to buy it.
