I bought this as a present for a friend, so have not used it - but the fabric quality and text print was very impressive and the recipient was chuffed. It looks as expensive as it is! Good if you want to buy something good quality.
It wasn't expensive, but a decent tea towel would do just as well. As a chef I expected something thicker and heavier and had I the opportunity to touch and feel I would not have bought it. Having said that I do use it, but a decent tea towel would do the same job.
The cloth is well worth the money. Performs as expected. Delivery was a week early too so although the p&p is slightly too much I feel, I can't really complain. I'd still buy another even with the cost of the postage.
