I first tried Sainsbury's Basics chopped tomatoes after becoming shocked at how expensive branded versions of this product were. I haven't used a more expensive product since! In fact I always have at least 2 packets in my cupboard as they are so versatile. Formerly available in a tin, these tomatoes are usually available now in a small cardboard type carton, which does make it easier to stack neatly in the cupboard. You open the packet by cutting off the corner flap. Just be careful not to squeeze the carton in your hand as you do so or you will end up with a spillage. This is one downside to this product - the likelihood of getting the tomato all over the ... Read the complete review

I have to admit I am a huge fan of Sainsbury Basic Chopped Tomatoes. The fact that they now come in a carton rather than a tin is even more of a bonus as it means you can put them in the fridge for a couple of days once opened. The tomatoes are chopped into small pieces and come packaged in tomato juice. One factor that can be a bit of a 'make or break' thing with tinned tomatoes is the amount of skins that you are left with. In the past I have shied away from Sainsbury Basic Chopped Tomatoes because I was worried that there would be more stalks and skins than in the branded varieties. This is definitely not the case and I was very happy with the quality ... Read the complete review

I was going to say that I use a lot of tinned tomatoes but Sainsbury's have now changed the packaging of their basic chopped tomatoes and use a CARDBOARD instead of the former tin. So, it is now true to say, that I will be using a lot of cartons of tomatoes. I will start by saying that I'm not pleased with this change. They may be lighter, it may be more environmentally friendly maybe? I don't know but I do know that I prefer the tins. I find these cartons difficult to open and messy. Also, there is more waste with these as, with a tin it's so easy to swish a little water around it and so this can be used in your recipe and no tomato juice is wasted. ... Read the complete review

I am always on the look out for sainsburys own products as I think some of them are great. I have always purchased supermarkets own chopped tomatoes over other more expensive brands, and they are always pretty much the same but sainsburys seem to be of great quality. A 400g tin of these costs just 35p and they make a great addition to pasta sauces, chillies and even on toast, with only 39 calories per tin, what a low fat meal. I have found with sainsburys own, even though they are cheap, they don't have many horrible cores in there, which I have found a lot of in other brands, this is the core of the tomato which is a lot harder than the ...

OK, so being a student, it's very useful to be able to save money on things. I pretty much try to save as much money as I can (drinking at home or the college bar instead of pubs and clubs, recycling old clothes on ebay, cooking instead of eating out etc). One of the best ways to save money on food is to buy the supermarket's own brand, or, even better, the basic/economy/value range. However, the problem with that is that often you don't get the quality that you would if you paid the extra. For things where that is the case, I will usually pay the extra to have something I'm really going to enjoy, rather than waste money on things I don't really like (which I ...
