Rated 5 out of 5 by from we needed a place for paper towels in our camper but do not have much counter space. This fit the bill perfectly. The hook fits perfectly over the cabinet door and is just heavy enough to stay in place when you pull off a towel. It looks as good in person as it does on the website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Space Saver Great product, holds a double roll perfectly and the cabinet door closes with the holder on. It doesn't fit my cabinet door perfect though and tends to wiggle a little.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfect Use a dbl roll. Works PERFECT. Fits square towel bar & over cabinet dr. No problem getting towels off the roll. The fit was nice & snug, no damage to dr, stayed in place & easy to replace roll. Placed it above my W/D on to the edge of the open shelf. It stayed in place with the help of a screw after using duct tape for a few days.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not fit This looked like a great product to get the paper towels off the counter and hidden but my cabinets won't close with it on. The metal is too thick. I have to return it for a refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great way to use up paper towel cores. Industrial paper towel dispensers often leave cores with remaining towels. The thin armed paper towel holder works great to hang the remaining core.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the cabinet perfectly and protects my paper towels from being shredded by my cats!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Saves Space, but be aware of cabinet door thicknes I love the idea of saving space by putting this on the inside of my cabinet door. It works fine. The only thing is if your cabinet doors are not as thick as the holder, then this holder moves around. You have to hold the metal part still while tearing off the towel or it will come off. It's ok, but honestly I may have taken it back had I not thrown away the packaging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good thing Very sturdy and functional. Fits well on cabinet doors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not that great I hate having stuff on the counter, and since we rent, needed something that wouldn't require drilling. You have to make a conscious effort to hold the roll down with one hand while you pull with the other, or your cabinet door pulls open. Also, I realized it doesn't really make sense to have this at base cabinet height. It's just too low. There is the pulling/bending problem, plus it just out too far and my husband is always walking into it. It would be way to high if we hung it on our above-counter cabinets. There needs to be a device that you can hang to your higher cabinets that drops far enough so the roll hangs to the center of your above-counter cabinet. That would be perfect - maybe I'll invent it hmmm.... Anyway, we're keeping it bc I like it better than having the roll on the counter...unless my husband tosses it into the trash when my back is turned!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought 2 of these to help me save space on my counters & walls since my kitchen is so small. I wanted to find a vertical paper towel holder to hang from the side of a cabinet but this one, although I thought sure it would work - the paper towel roll leans & if not adjusted properly, the paper towel unrolls on its own - until I find something better, I'm stuck w/ these!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice addition to the kitchen I like this item because I have limited counter space and like to keep clutter to a limit. While I wanted to have paper towels within reach, I don't like the whole roll taking up space on the counter. This item is a great solution to that problem. My only critique of the item is that the over-the-door part is a bit wide for my cabinet doors and it doesn't feel securely attached. Granted, not all doors are the same width, but maybe it could have been devised to tighten/loosen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from convenient Keeps towels out of the way when not needed, off the counter top, clean and dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfec!t fit Purchased the towel holder for use in our 5th wheel travel trailer, the fit was perfect, it can be used by hanging from door under the sink or from an upper cabinet lip out of the way while cooking. Simply unhook and stow under sink while moving down the highway. Wish I had found it sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT Solution I can't stand mess on my counters. This solves the problem perfectly! I love that it's stainless steel and sturdy... plus it looks "nice". The added bonus - it comes off easily so when I move, this wonderful "must have" can pack up and move with me without any drilling or unsticking! You'll love it - just get it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from practical what a cute little gadget. it is strong and sturdy mot cheap looking and fits perfect in my bottom kitchen cabinet,, i love love love it. I think I am addicted to the container store. have not been disappointed yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient This is convenient, but you must understand that anything like this that you hang inside a cabinet is going to take up space inside the cabinet and may displace items that are near the front of the cabinet on shelves. I use these inside bathroom cabinets, so I have paper towels in the bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever Don't know why I waited so long to try to find one of these! It's perfect in my bathroom for quick tidying. Now I want one in every bathroom! Unobtrusive but always easily available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I recently moved to a new place. No PT holder installed, didn't want to drill, and don't have a lot of counter space. This overcabinet holder works great! It doesn't get in the way of things under the sink, and best of all, it stays in place. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just what we needed! Because of the way our kitchen is designed, and because we rent rather than own, we couldn't find the right solution to keep paper towels handy in a space-efficient way. This product was the solution to a problem we've lived with for five years, and solves it in an elegant, attractive way. It required no installation except to hang it over a cabinet door, and was very reasonably priced.

Door clearance

How far down does the over the cabinet portion hang down inside the door in order for it to clear the lip of the cabinet frame and fully close.
Asked by: drceegee
Our Stainless Steel Over the Cabinet Paper Towel Holder features a 1-1/4" drop to clear the lip of the cabinet frame and allow the cabinet door to fully close.

Can it also be wall mounted?

Description says it can be mounted inside a deeper cabinet, presumably on the wall of the cabinet. I'm looking for a wall-mount paper towel holder that can be used in my garage to hang garbage bags. Needs to have a very narrow arm to slide through the inside of the roll of bags. Hoping this is the one...

How visible is the "overhang" on the outside of the cabinet door when closed?

I assume there will be a little bit of silver visible, but is it terribly obvious?
Asked by: OP830
Totally visible. You see a big flap hanging over the edge
