Umbra Bronze Tug Paper Towel Holder is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Gadget! I adore this product. It is a simple and logical way to dispense paper towels without them going everywhere or being on those wall dispensers that never quite stay on the wall. I have these all over my house, in the kitchen and bathrooms. A pretty way to add a bit of organization.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best paper towel holder I've ever used This paper towel holder is sturdy and has a classic design. I can give one tug on my particular brand of paper towels, and a towel comes off with no trouble. I have only used one brand of paper towels with this holder so far, so it could be true that different brands come off with different levels of effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well balanced I have resisted a counter paper towel holder for years. I needed every square inch of counter I could find in my limited counter kitchen. We have renovated our kitchen, I now have under counter lighting and no where to install an above counter paper towel holder. This one is great! The bronze color compliments the colors in our kitchen and it is weighted so it doesn't tip easily. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very helpful I only realized the need for a new paper towel holder after trying to rip off paper towels one handed while cooking and such. This is one of the less expensive ones and I like the simple, modern look to it. Works as claimed, I can easily rip off towels one handed and it is weighted very well in the bottom. Never moves or tips over. Love this paper towel holder!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent This is nice looking and better than many other paper towel holders I've seen. However, it's not as heavy as I thought it would be. Also, not sure what they're referring to as the tug feature. It definitely takes two hands. The "hidden rubber friction" feature seems to be missing on the one I received. Still a nice holder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Its kind of hard to review something as simple as a paper towel dispenser but it works great, it doesnt tip over even if pulled hard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice paper towel holder This paper towel holder works well and is reasonably attractive. One nice feature are the rubber fins on the column that grip the paper towel roll so that you can retrieve a towel using only one hand. The bottom of the base is also rubber to improve stability. Finally, the brushed nickel finish is easy to keep clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paper Towel holder attractive and functional I use this nickel tug paper towel holder by Umbra. It makes the nickel hardware in my kitchen and sits unobtrusively on my granite countertops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Item Have tried a number of different paper towel holders, each time finding fault for either lack of weighted bottom, not the correct color, difficult to use using just one hand, etc. This Umbra in bronze is perfect & has solved all the issues above. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase I Made to Simplify The Nickel Tug Paper Towel Holder by Umbra® is the best purchase I made to simplify - hands down. This Paper Towel Holder is sleek and will fit any decor in any kitchen. If you have a kitchen - you NEED this Paper Towel Holder. I have had other paper towel holders that when you went to get ONE paper towel off quickly to use for a spill the whole roll followed with you instead of tearing off as it should. With the Nickel Tug Paper Towel Holder by Umbra® that will not happen. It tears the paper off where you want it - quickly and easily - simple. Great Purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Holder This holder does the job. It is great quality and can hold paper towel rolls without having to remove the ball up top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paper towel holder! Love this paper towel holder! Love that you don't have to unscrew anything to put on or take off the roll of towels and I love that it allows you to easily tear off towels individually. This really has it right!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Paper Towel Holder Have had numerous paper towel holders and this is the best. Weighted so that is does not tip over and allows you to rip one sheet at a time. Definitely recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So-So It's ok, but I had a different version before that really held the rolls better so you could truly be one-handed. This one holds it a bit, but doesn't always work.
Date published: 2013-02-20
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed The color is a bright copper bronze. Do not expect it to match your oil rubbed bronze fixtures. Also, the base does not weigh enough. When the roll gets low, the holder tips over. Nice sleek look but was not worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great purchase!! i will definitely be buying another one of these, I bought this for my parents house and they just love it! my favorite is how it really only takes one hand... extremely useful in the kitchen

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, glad I bought it This paper towel holder really does work well. As describes, it works one handed. Looks good on the counter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best towel holder I've experienced. Its not too heavy but one can still use one tug without holding it with the other hand. Also, its attractive and not too obvious on the counter Perfect

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks nice I bought this after my Grasp holder broke from years of use. I like that there's nothing to screw off at the top to put the roll on the holder. It saves time. However the rubber doesn't fit very snugly against my paper towel rolls and for the most part I have to use two hands, which is difficult when I am carrying my 5 month old around. Satisfied otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Perfect We love our new paper towel holder. It doesn't take up too much space on the counter, the color goes perfectly with our bronze fixtures, and it does just what it's supposed to -- keeps the towels in place when you're doing a one handed grab and pull to clean up messes and then sits stylishly on your countertop until needed again. Couldn't ask for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! I didn't want to spend the money to get a paper towel holder because I had one that worked okay (my countertop). But after a month of that, I decided to buy this one, and I haven't regretted my decision. It is easy to replace the roll and mostly stays in place when I tug a sheet off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! (and my husband does too!) We have tried numerous paper towel holders and my husband was never happy....until now! I went online to search for, hopefully, our last paper towel holder and came across this one. It looked good and it had good reviews. We have had it for approximately two years now and I don't see needing a new one anytime soon.

Community Q&A

Does this paper towel holder have rubber on the bottom ?

I am looking for a paper towel holder that does not scratch my counter. Does this one have rubber on the bottom?
Asked by: Texx
This product has a suede-like liner on the bottom that will keep your counter unscratched.
