The towels are now thinner.

By 

from USA

Comments about Kirkland Paper Towels:

I have recently noticed that with the new "select a size" towels there have been some changes for the worse. The towels are now thinner and tend to tear in all the wrong places. This is a complete disappointment. I believe that any expense involved in the "select a size" process has attributed to the decline in quality.

Quality Control is Down

By 

from USA

Comments about Kirkland Paper Towels:

I like the Kirkland Paper Towels because they are strong, absorbent, and economical. Select-a-size is fine. However, since they changed to the new select-a-size, the quality has gone way down in other ways. Specifically, what we find IN the paper towels. When they first switched over, we would consistently find what looked like dark red rust spots in the towels. After some time, that was rectified. But ever since then, we have found what looks like brown weed stems, weed tops and small black spots lodged in between the towels, which easily detach or just fall off the towel while tearing a sheet off.

HATE the new half sheet perforations - terrible idea.

By 

from USA

Comments about Kirkland Paper Towels:

I have used these towels for years, but now they have changed to perforations every half sheet instead being able to tear off of a whole sheet. Far from being a convenience, or savings, it totally destroys the integrity of the paper which splits in the middle when used. It's a DISASTER. It takes two hands to tear off a whole (or even half) sheet or it tears in the wrong place, often at 3 half sheets. It takes the waste of using extra sheets crosswise to get any integrity in using a whole sheet. There is absolutely NOTHING beneficial about this hateful new gimmick. I'm so disappointed Kirkland jumped on this bandwagon. How about being original and giving us a paper towel with integrity once more?

A great paper towel for home or work!

By 

from USA

Comments about Kirkland Paper Towels:

We have used Kirkland Paper Towels at our veterinary clinic for many years. I also use them at home. They are more economical than other brands and they are of good quality. You get a lot of paper towel per roll, which is important for us because we use a lot of paper towels at work. They are also 2 ply, which I will only use. They are very absorbent and you can dry your hands with just one sheet, unlike some brands that it takes 2 or 3 sheets. At the clinic, we use them to clean up lots of big messes. We really have put these paper towels through a lot "tests" with all the different things that need cleaning and wiping up at a veterinary clinic and Kirkland's paper towels can hold up to all of it. We also use them all the time when washing windows and to dry our exam tables after cleaning with disinfectant spray. You can even get them wet to wipe or scrub and they work well that way, too.

They just introduced a select-a-size towel. They feel thinner!

By 

from USA

Comments about Kirkland Paper Towels:

Costco's Kirkland brand paper towels are now (as of Oct. 2013) made in a select-a-size style, which allows you to use a 7 inch towel for the regular 14 inch towel, This option is not a deal-breaker for me because I like the larger size Kirkland paper towel sheets. The thing that gets me is that even though the rolls are the same in square inches when compared to the previous style of towels (I dug an old wrapper out of my trash), the new roll wrapper says the towels are two-ply, but THE NEW STYLE TOWELS FEEL THINNER. Does anyone else notice this? I wish I still had a roll of the old style towels around the house to actually weigh them to compare the weights of the rolls.

Kirkland changed something recently

By 

from USA

Comments about Kirkland Paper Towels:

Kirkland paper towels used to be the best paper towels you could buy. Kirkland has changed the way they manufacture these recently and the changes have been for the worse. The sheets seem to be larger than they used to be causing a lot of waste per sheet. The rolls themselves are smaller, so you go through them much quicker.. I for one will not buy these again unless they switch back to the way they used to be. They definitely didn't last long the last time I purchased them.

Kirkland Paper Towels take out big messes without a big price!

By 

from Denver, CO

Comments about Kirkland Paper Towels:

For something that's disposable and typically used just one time, do you really need to spend that much time thinking about what roll of paper towels you're going to grab at the store?

In my mind, absolutely! First of all, I want functional towels that are absorbent, easy to tear off the roll, and fairly durable. Secondly, I want them to be of a decent size that can handle anything that comes their way. Third, I really don't care about having some generic design on the towels - they never "match" my decor anyway, so who needs flowers and pears printed in faded ink on something you're just going to throw away?

That's why Kirkland Signature Paper Towels are just perfect for me. Yes, you get a big Costco-sized package of 12 rolls. But they're a great price and you don't have to worry about running out of rolls quickly. Plus, paper doesn't expire, so just store them in your garage. I use them for cleaning ordinary stuff in the kitchen, but they're also substantial enough to use to clean road tar or bug goop off the car. They are a great thickness for draining grease from pan-fried foods. If you like to microwave bacon, they work really well in absorbing grease (and I don't have to worry that the dyed ink designs on lesser towels are leaching into my food). The price per roll is comparable to cheap store brands, but the quality is equivalent to expensive premium brands.
