Ora Kitchen Towel Stack: A review

Ora Kitchen Towel Stack: A review

Ora Kitchen Towel Review

I have been sent a stack of these rather smart looking kitchen towels by Ora.  I was intrigued because it promises hands free access – something I need with my family!  With a one year old who we lovingly call ‘Daniel the Destroyer,’ who likes to spill drinks, tip things over and generally cause havoc, plus a four year old who likes spinning and a 6 year old who is, well, a typical boy, I need all the help I can get.  Throw in me, someone who is regularly bitten by the clumsy bug, I need no further persuasion!

What I like:

  • It has twice the number of sheets than a normal kitchen roll
  • The sheets are smaller than a traditional rectangular sheet and more ergonomic
  • They are super strong and absorbent
  • Eco-friendly – less packaging than standard kitchen towels and therefore less mileage needed to distribute
  • They feel nice and soft
  • There’s no tearing so less waste and no pulling out ten sheets at once!
  • Chic design
  • You can use them for crafts with the children too, see their Facebook page for inspiration

Any improvements?

There’s a technique to grabbing just one at a time, if you grab them by the fold, you get just one, try and grab from the top cone, you may get a few at a time!

Where can I get some?

They are available in over 1500 Tesco stores, find your stockist here.

Summary

I like the way they look in my kitchen, very stylish and futuristic, like a rocket waiting to take off.  I find them easy to use and I’m impressed in particular with how strong they are, they withstand a good scrub, even on my hob or dried on dirt on the kitchen table!  I knocked over a drink the other day and Ora came to the rescue, I learnt that you can wring them out and use again (and again…) as required.  I am a fan of anything that helps us look after the environment and so less waste is a win in my book.

Update

They now also have a shorter stack which is only £1 and is equivalent to one ‘normal’ roll of kitchen towel.  Perfect!

Disclosure: I was given the stack of kitchen towels for free in return for my open and honest review.

    Ahh my husband loves these! They’re always his go-to favourite kitchen towel (Wow, did I really just say that? How old do we sound having favourite kitchen towels?). He loves anything a bit different and I do have to say… they definitely last longer than a usual roll. They get my vote!

      Times change with what we’re into! I’m loving the convenience of them.

    I love that it’s round!
    I use kitchen towel to line tubs & tins (cakes & biscuits) that are all round, so at last no more dodgy squares that don’t quite fit!

      That would be good, I didn’t think of that!

    How cool! They look like a full on revolution in kitchen roll.
