Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty But... I purchased this towel holder because it was the only bronze one that I could find that could be mounted under the cabinet. While it looks really good, it doesn't work all that well. The screw on end comes off at least twice per roll of paper towels. Some towels are too tight on it to be able to roll easily and some brands are so loose that you try to grab one towel and half the roll comes off. Did not return since I could not find another bronze so I decided to glue the end in place and glue the roller on to the other end. With both ends stationary it works much better with the brand of towels I buy. So I just made it work but would not recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satisified Customer I am happy with this product as it goes nicely with our other accents/appliances in our newly painted kitchen. However, the only thing that causes me to frown upon it would be that the rubber in the arm is a little thicker than need be and slides the cardboard inside the paper towel roll to be visible. But overall, it is a good product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks Can Be Deceiving While this paper towel holder looks very nice and would seem to be the perfect product, it lacks the ability to keep the roll of paper towels on the rod. One good tug on the paper towel roll can pull the roll right off of the rod. I will say, however, that The Container Store stands behind their products 100% with one of the best customer service departments out there, so don't be afraid to try any of their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wall mount paper towel holder This holder compliments all my hardware, and I like it's sleek design--very rich looking. For a few dollars more,it was well worth the price. Dispenses towel without roll unraveling.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pulled right out of my wall Nice color. I use Viva paper towels it doesn't roll nicely and the paper towel holder has grips. This pulled out of my wall and it's not anchored on both sides. It should be there is a good weight to this item. Then I would give it 5 stars. But this design is terrible, the screws that come with it are not good, which is the norm on anything these days. I was so excited, and after paying shipping to get it to me it was $30 something NOT worth it! The paper towels are back on the counter driving me crazy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great one-handed rescue This is GREAT for grabbing a few towels one-handed on the run. I have it installed vertically in the bath, and it looks great there (not like an out-of-place kitchen gadget!). I've got a Great Dane that loves to drink out of the bathroom faucet---and this is a lifesaver when dripping lips need to be grabbed QUICKLY!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knew what I wanted - couldn't find it anywhere! I was thrilled to find this paper towel holder. I knew the style and finish I wanted, but couldn't find it anywhere, until I found The Container Store! The product is perfect. It has clean lines, the bronze finish goes perfectly in my kitchen. No hassles with order or delivery. BRAVO!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Towel Holder... Purchased 2 of this type of towel holder in the brushed nickel finish. Very easy to install - one in kitchen & the other in our laundry room. The style is versatile. Can go with contemporary or traditional decor. You can take 2-3 sheets of paper towels per yank without difficulty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i love this item! there already was a cheap under the counter paper towel holder in the apartment but it was an irritant to all visitors. i got tired of their complainging and went on line to check out options. this one appealed to me because of the sturdiness of the holder. i also like the idea of using just one hand to tear off the paper towels. it is so sturdy and so far so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not find elsewhere We were happy to find at last a bronze finish paper towel holder to match our new bathroom faucets. We installed it on the side of our wall cabinet to keep it off the counter. A nice simple design and easy to slip paper rolls off and on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I searched & searched for a paper towel holder to match my newly remodeled kitchen. I love this one & it didn't cost much! I've only had it for about a week but it's great! Stop searching, just get it already!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bronze Tug Wall-Mount Paper Towel Holder by Umbra® The only bronze wall-mount that seems to be found. I love it! I use it in the bathroom and mounted it to the side of the vanity. Works real well, used little space and looks beautiful! It deserves and A+. And the price is right!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Look + Functional I am very happy with this purchase. I ordered the bronze and it looks great with our bronze fixtures. I have it hanging vertical. The paper towel sheets tear off easily with one hand as described. It's the perfect addition in the small bathroom that my husband uses to wash up in after working in the garage.Having this handy paper towel holder keeps the guest towel on the towel bar neat and clean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive and practical Works great! We ordered this for our master bath. Nice design and holds the towels in place.
Date published: 2010-08-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Great! The silver color matches the stainless in my kitchen perfectly. I ended up mounting it to the inside of a cupboard door under the sink, so I had to buy shorter screws (so they would not poke thru the front of the cabinet door), but other than that is was very easy to install and works great. My one complaint would be it's not overly grippy. You do have to give the paper towel a firm tug to get it to rip away, but maybe that is more an issue with my towels than this holder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Paper towel holder This is stylish and looks great in our kitchen. But, the paper doesn't roll easily and it makes a noise when you pull. The point of the design is to create friction for a one-hand tear, but it's a little too much and the noise is noticable in the next room.
Date published: 2010-05-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This looks great in my kitchen and matches well with all of the bronze hardware. I also love that I only have to use one hand to get a paper towel. I'm so glad I found this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful piece We have not hung the paper towel holder but it is a very nice looking piece! We have two rubbed bronze hooks that I wanted to match and it looks great with them. The design is very modern also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cute paper towel holder I love the look of this product. Many paper towel holders are an eye sore but not this! Plus the fact that it will mount on the wall (as shown in photo) or you can turn it and mount it under your cabinets to free up your conter space. Some paper towel brands are to tight of a fit and won't spin on this but that is a small price to pay in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a real space saver This is a wonderful must have for any small kitchen. Placing under the cabinet was the best option for my space.

vertical mount?

Can this be use as a vertical mount dispenser?
Asked by: sheilao
Thank you for your question. Yes- you could mount this vertical with the mounting plate on the bottom to ensure the paper towel rolls do not slide off. Thank you!

Has anyone had trouble with this being too heavy if mounted under a cabinet?

Asked by: smilam
We have received no feedback about this paper towel holder being too heavy. It would be perfect either mounted to the wall, or underneath a cabinet.
