A traditional British roast just wouldn't be the same without gravy, and nobody does gravy better than Bisto. Just imagine it. A few slices of roast beef or chicken, some mashed potato, yorkshire puds and veggies, drizzled (or drowned in) thick rich gravy. Yum :o) I think that because I grew up eating roast dinners every Sunday I eventually found them quite boring and unappealing so stopped having them so reguarly. That said, if I'm home and I smell a roast on I'm always tempted! It just wouldn't be the same without Bisto gravy to give it some flavour and a bit of moisture. This review is for the powder version of Bisto, similar to granules, and is extremely ... Read the complete review

At school we had to make gravy the 'proper' way & I never succeeded in making a good one as it was always too greasy & the wrong consistency - so I gave up! My Mum made the best ever gravy but she kept us all out of the kitchen when she was making it so goodness knows what was in it! The family love gravy but I only really make it when we're having a chicken or lamb roast and, of course at Christmas ( I can't imagine Christmas dinner without gravy - it would be rather dry wouldn't it?).

There is no doubt in my mind that Bisto gravy tastes better than other brands. My parents always used the Bisto Powder and I assumed this was the best one. However, I was introduced to the granules and they are far easier but taste just as good. So I will never go back to powder. The real downside to Bisto Gravy Powder is that it can go lumpy very easily. You must stir it continually over heat and not even look away for a second or it can go lumpy and sometimes stick to the bottom of the pan. You need to add just the right amount of water to the powder. 280ml of water to 4 teaspoons of gravy powder makes enough gravy for 4 people. With the ... Read the complete review

We had this for sunday lunch yesterday and thought I would write of my disappointment. I usually buy Tesco's own brand gravy powder but I'm not sure if they don't sell it anymore or it was just out of stock but I had no alternative so purchased this. I found that it went lumpy really easily even though I made it up according to the instructions on the packet. You need to make sure that you keep stirring and stirring - and then while I left it to keep warm whilst serving up it had a really yucky skin on top so I ended up sieving the whole thing before I could even serve it!! I found that even though it wasn't thin it really looked as ... Read the complete review
