COVID-19 sent me looking for a way to get paper towels without going in a store. Our local stores were either out altogether or required an in-store pickup, so I checked Eishops several times a day and these became available. I wasn't familiar with the Presto brand, but they're great. I don't see any difference between them and the Bounty select-a-size I typically buy, and the price is reasonable for doorstep delivery. Of course they've been out of stock ever since, but that's just the new normal!
I have tried the Presto paper towels and toilet tissue. Both are very good value for the money. The paper towels offer the super convenient select-a-size on a huge roll. I order these on a monthly basis using the Eishops subscription so that I always have paper towels in the house. The quality of the Presto brand is very good, super thick, soft and absorbent. These paper towels are pretty much identical to Bounty, price wise they seem to be a good deal. Regarding the Kirkland brand, since I refuse to pay the Costco annual membership I do not shop there and therefore cannot comment on them. To sum up, if you are looking for something comparable to Bounty at a better price, then these are for you! Highly Recommended! Tom F. - Chicago, IL
I purchased these towels during the covid19 paper shortage because I could not purchase Bounty. In my opinion Presto is not as good as Bounty. I have always purchased the Bounty full-size sheets. I really don't like the 'flex' towels. That said; Presto is thinner than Bounty. Presto is very absorbent, but in a paper towel, you don't want it to be too absorbent because you have to use more sheets if you have a wet mess. If I had to rate both, with 100 being the highest grade: Bounty is 100, and Presto is about 75. I would buy Presto again if I have to, but when my Bounty sheets return, I will be happy to purchase them again.
I'm in the process of moving and forgot papertowels at the store (I live 25 miles from the nearest supermarket) I needed normal things for the move and decided to order these. I was amazed by the size of these and still had a roll left of the name brand I purchased last. These were bigger and thicker and found that pulling off the select-a-size very easy. Other brands don't always tear easy. I made spaghetti last night and sprayed my cleaner on my stove let sit for maybe 90 seconds, and these papertowels, cleaned my stove with no problem and found that they were great in scrubbing the heat dried sauce. Was really surprised and I'll order them again! (I noticed some reviews complaining about softness) I'm not sure about "soft" papertowels, but I thought they were fine. I want my papertowels durable with a softness to them, I want my toilet paper soft.
Paper towels are great. Thick, absorbent, cheap - Everything you want. BUTTT you have 6 rolls, wrapped in plastic, then put in an overly heavyweight box which is then put in ANOTHER super heavy duty box, which is then filled with packing material (to make sure the paper towels don't break I guess...). I'm not mr Super Environmental, but unpacking them made me feel like a genuinely bad person. 5 stars for towels, 1 star for carbon footprint.
