What is the CHOICE Expert Rating

CHOICE Expert rating

This is the product's overall performance score, based on key tests conducted by our industry experts in the CHOICE labs.

Recommended View more details.

We recommend paper towels with a CHOICE Expert Rating of at least 70%, an absorption score of at least 70% and no other scores below 65%.

CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

The overall score is made up of absorption (60%), puncture (strength) force (20%), separation (tear at the perforation) force (10%) and wet tear strength (10%).

Absorption score View more details.

In this test we assess how much liquid the paper towel can absorb.

Wet tear strength score View more details.

We test how easily the paper towel will tear when wet to show how strong it is, or if you're dealing with something you don't particularly want coming through the towel.

Separation test score View more details.

We measure the ease of separating the paper towel at the perforation. The easier it is for paper towel to tear off the roll, the better.

Puncture test score View more details.

We assess the strength of the paper towel by testing its resistance to puncturing. In this test a higher force is the most desirable result, meaning your finger is less likely to go through the paper.

Cost per 100 sheets View more details.

It achieves this by setting standards on forest products with a certification process.
