Thereâ€™s something about the paper towel holder being heavy + locking in each sheet that suuuucks when it slides around. On a cheaper holder , itâ€™s like and you can easily hold onto it with little pressure to tear a paper towel. But since this thing locks onto your paper towel, you end up having to rotate it in addition to holding it down to grab a paper towel. Iâ€™m going to buy some kind of adhesive to see if I can just seal it to my counter. Btw I tested multiple surfaces and it was always the same. All of this wouldnâ€™t be an issue if there wasnâ€™t a picture of someone ripping off a paper towel with 1 hand...

Functions as stated
Seems to work correctly. It has a weighted base and a ratchet system to limit how much you pull out and then holds its place so you can tear off a towel with one hand. I tried several different holders and all had a limitation and resulted in loose towels everywhere. I've not given it 5 stars because I'm unsure of long term durability yet, and want to see if it develops problems, especially with multiple users.

I got my original paper towel holder like this at BB&B, but it broke after a year o fuse. I was so bummed because they no longer carry this item. In my AlumiGogo search for a non-traditional paper towel holder, I was extremely pleased to find this item available. It looks great and is a more rustic chic look to a paper towel holder than most. So happy I was able to find this item again!

While it worked great at first
While it worked great at first, the mechanism that allows for the paper towel roll to stay in place while you tear off a towel has broken. The top is also difficult to unscrew when it is time to replace the paper towel roll. I do love that the base is heavy enough to stay in place when you are tearing off a paper towel. Despite the mechanism being broken, it still works and I will continue to use it.

Doesn't work well
The base is not heavy enough to operate with 1 hand. It tips and slides on the counter when you pull the towel. I have another one from a different manufacturer that is awesome and I was looking forward to receiving this one because the red is a great color for my kitchen but alas, I had to return it :-)

Works great. I love how this unit stays in place when pulling off a paper towel. The fact that you can't accidentally over roll it is fantastic too! The flat bottom is a plus that you don't have to worry about scratching the counter or table. This goes nicely with bronze fixtures too.

It looks nice on the counter and it stays put while pulling a towel off until you get to the end of the roll and then you have to hold on to it. Overall a great product.

Very disappointed with this product
Very disappointed with this product. When you load a full roll of paper towels, it works great. As the roll gets smaller, the base is not heavy enough to prevent the thing from tipping over as you pull a paper towel off, the ratchet strength overpowers the weight of the base. So instead of the "perfect tear" you have to use 2 hands, 1 to hold the thing upright, 1 to rip off a paper towel. I am returning.

Works great! I ordered as a replacement to an oil rubbed bronze colored one we had that I somehow broke. It's a bit more on the brown side than bronze, but has a nice metallic sheen that makes it work.

Works very well except when the roll is down to its last few paper towels. Overall I love this product and it is the second one I've purchased because I gave one as a gift and bought one for myself after using it in person.
