Rated 1 out of 5Â by mehamer Did not work from the getgo!
We had been using and reusing a Dawn pump with regular dish soap and water according to a few YouTube tutorials. I was really excited to find this item and I was SO looking forward to using this pump! Unfortunately, from day one, the pump did not work properly. When I depressed the spout, it would stay in the 'down' position; it would not spring back up for another 'pump'. The inside straw looked too close to the bottom of the bottle, so I trimmed 1/16 of an inch to allow more soap through the tube. That did not help . . . I then attempted to lubricate the upper area where the up and down pump action took place. That did not help . . . I used the pump as best I could for about three weeks until I got so frustrated I pounded all of the soap out of it and threw it in the trash. I'm back to the Dawn pump. SOOOOO disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MaryMN Love it! My Go-To Housewarming Gift
While shopping last year, I read the reviews on this site and others and was skeptical as to whether this would perform to my expectations, especially since it is a little pricey on the front end. I am pleased to say that it does.
I have given it as a housewarming gift several times and there have been no complaints, only rave reviews about the luxurious, rich foam. I am actually heading to my local Container Store today to pick up another one for a friend who bought a new house. The suction cup is genius, yet easily comes off the counter on cleaning day.
I think some of the problems may have to do with what type of "soap" is used in the dispenser. We use Bath and Body Works shower gel or Mrs. Meyer's hand soap in ours; a friend uses Kiss My Face liquid soap, another friend uses whatever high-end liquid soap is on sale at her favorite boutique bath shop, and my hair stylist uses the Aveda hand and body washes.
My daughter has already requested that when she moves into her own apartment next year that she also receive this pump. As always, if there is a problem, I would return it to The Container Store, as they are always gracious when something doesn't work out.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by LoryNegro Looks great, doesn't foam
Purchased this to try to curb my six-year-old's overuse of hand soap, hoping that a handful of foam would convince him that a single pump would suffice. Unfortunately, whether it is the brand of soap we use, or something else, this pump doesn't foam at all. It does spit out a conservative droplet of soap, but no foam.
It is a nice-looking dispenser, though, and it is nice to have the suction cup on the bottom so that it doesn't always end up in the sink when the kids bang on it.

We are so disappointed because we loved this soap dispenser. It stopped working after 6 months. At first it would get stuck in the down position. Then it stopped bringing up soap. I cleaned it thoroughly but it didn't help.
