Tesco Value Wrapping Foil
Advantages: Does the job well and cheaper than other brands
Disadvantages: not as thick as more expensive brands
I am quite funny in that with some items, even household ones, I will just not buy from the value range. However with some items that is pretty much all I will buy as I see no point in paying more and one of those items that I always buy is value wrapping foil. This review is for the Tesco value wrapping foil.
The Tesco value branded foil is a very simple looking item to be honest and the packaging used is simply a plastic layer over the top of the tube of the foil. The plastic layer features a red band which is the length of the roll and it tells us that the product is Tesco value wrapping foil. The packaging of the product does make it look cheap I have to say and in many cases this is why I will avoid a value product but I think in this case Tesco have got it spot on as when you use the foil for the first time you throw the plastic layer away so it is totally pointless going over the top with the packaging.
The roll of the wrapping foil is 290mm in width and has 25m of foil in each roll which I think is a pretty average length to be honest for a day to day foil. When you first use the foil there is a little sticky white label holding the foil down and obviously this needs to be removed. More often than not this peels away easily if care is taken but I have been known to rip the foil a little in the process.
For me this shiny wrapping foil is perfectly acceptable to use in the kitchen on a regular basis. It is quite thin, and is certainly much thinker than a bako brand foil for example, but it is also much cheaper than other brands. I use this foil to wrap up cakes if I have made extra for friends and family as well as for wrapping my son's sandwiches for foil if I have run out of bags. The foil can also be used to line grill trays if you are cooking sausages or something and it helps reduce the mess on the tray. It is also useful for wrapping up left overs which can be then stored in the fridge. The foil is thick enough to not require two layers and it does not rip when I uses it so I am more than happy with the quality of this value product.
As far as I am concerned this foil does exactly the same job as others on the market and it works well for me. A roll will set you back 80p currently as the price has jumped up much like everything else but it still offers good value so why pay more?
Thank you for reading my review!
