Pros: Soft texture, pretty dispenser box
Cons: Napkins are thin when unfolded
I was buying paper napkins and I saw this offering from Bounty that included a decorative dispenser for the napkins. Couldn’t resist – into the cart it went.
~ Product Description
Bounty Quilted Napkins come packaged in a decorative cardboard dispenser that you can refill when all the napkins are gone. The napkins are solid white, and measure about a foot square. You get 50 1-ply napkins in the box.
Now this decorative dispenser is more like a holder or container for the napkins, and is nearly the exact same size as the napkins, so it doesn’t take up any more space than a pile of napkins alone would. One side of the dispenser has a thumb cutout so you can more easily grab a napkin as the pile gets lower.
There were several different patterns to choose from as far as the look of the dispenser; some floral and other patterns and colors. I chose one that looks like a basket.
I found this at my local grocery store for about $3.
~ My Experience
Whether or not you’ll like this or find it useful will depend on how you use and store napkins. I’ve always just kept a little pile on my kitchen counter. Of course there are all sorts napkin holders available, but I just never bothered.
Bounty Quilted Napkins with Decorative Dispenser provides a holder, which is really just a cardboard box with a pretty pattern, along with the napkins. The holder contains the napkins and makes them easy to locate and dispense. This would be good for RV’s, picnics, parties, boating, camping, or just regular household use.
The napkins are what I would consider medium sized; dinner sized but not huge. When unfolded they are pretty thin, and if you are eating something greasy and messy you’ll probably need more than one.
The napkins are plain white with a slight texture. Bounty calls them quilted, but that’s a stretch in my opinion. They do feel softer than some cheaper napkins, and I like the soft feeling that almost (almost) at first doesn’t feel like paper. I wish they were a little heavier weight, although I haven't noticed much problem with tearing or shredding.
~ Final Thoughts
Bounty Quilted Napkins with Decorative Dispenser are basic paper napkins that feel quite soft, but are definitely not of the heavy duty variety. The decorative dispenser box is a nice touch, and it’s refillable. These are fine for everyday use, but you might need two when eating a messy, greasy meal.
