We buy the giant roll of bounty select-a-size paper towels and they fit on this with no problem. The arm has these thin metal rods sticking out that hold the roll in place so when you pull it, it doesn't pull like fifty towels off. It's really easy to just get one sheet off, even one handed. I like that the end that you slide the towel over has a nice, finished design. It looks great in my kitchen and like I said, I'm really happy with this purchase.
It turns out that price difference is indeed justified! If you unscrew the main shaft you'll expose the ratcheting mechanism, which looks weaker for Chrome variant even to the naked eye, - without examination how it works..
Cheaper mechanism is inferior - it slips almost on every turn of the shaft, primarily because there's too much distance (axially) between the prongs and the chrome disc of the mounting bracket, so nothing forces the prongs to stay in line with the ratchet ring. Adding a flat plastic washer might actually save it for some time .. until the prongs break.
A flat plastic washer also would not hurt the Stainless Steel variant either, but the axial distance is smaller, so it's not a "must-do".
Let’s start by saying that this is by far the best paper towel holder I have ever used.
This may seem on the surface to be of minimal importance but to anyone who has needed a paper towel for something, fast and one handed, then you know how most holders out there can fail you. Freestanding countertop ones just topple over or worse, fly away sending a paper towel streamer across the room. Any of the mounted “Bathroom TP Style” ones don’t hold the roll stable and once free spinning a nice mountain of paper towels can pile onto the counter. Then there are the friction ones out there. Most have such a death grip on the roll that you are lucky to get more than a corner of a sheet ripped off. Often all you come back with is a thumb sized shred. All in all a plethora of badly designed holders are out there and some really ugly ones too.
Now to this fantastic holder with the ratchet design.
Mounting was easy as one would expect. The cheap plastic screw anchors that came with it are useless. If you can’t, conveniently, screw it into a stud or other wood frame then get some much better drywall anchors. Personally I think an array of inexpensive wall anchors are a must have in the home for just this reason. When positioning it make sure you will have enough clearance for the largest rolls of paper towels you generally use. I like the Bounty Select a Size Huge Rolls and huge they are. You can see in my pictures the difference between the huge rolls and a regular roll. You can also see I gave the huge rolls just enough clearance and no more. I want this as out of the way and invisible as possible.
Sturdy Chrome Spring Wires.
Once mounted the roll itself is securely held in place by the spring wires. Getting the roll on and off takes some force. Not enough to bend or crush but you do have to give it a bit of effort. If you use some fancy brand with a smaller or larger center diameter this will not likely work for you. Those spring bars are rather stout and would likely rip through a smaller than standard diameter roll.
Really, once again, this is one of those “I wish I thought of it” ideas. It gives just enough resistance that the roll does not start spinning on its own. Not so much that you can’t pull on it and get several sheets out. And then with a final sharp tug the exact amount rips right along the closest to the roll perforation and you have a perfect amount of un-shredded paper towel. That simple. There is a rather satisfying clicking as the roll turns out that I like. Some may find it annoying. Initially the dog did look at it funny but has since decided to ignore it.
Here we may have an issue. There are more than a few reviews here that talk about the ratchet mechanism failing. Compounding this is the possibility of slightly different ratchet designs between the different finishes. This is not speaking well for the engineers at Kamenstein if all is true. It may also be that what some have seen is old (failing) models mixed with new (improved) models. Hard to say without a representative from Kamenstein chiming in. That said this holder is worth the effort to repair if needed and a few reviewers have given some hints and photos to help those inclined to try. Even if I wouldn’t go to that effort (which I will if needed) at $10 to $15 if I can get a year or two out of it I will be satisfied.
One last thing.
I don’t want to get on a soapbox but what’s wrong with fixing things when they break? We used to do it all the time but recently we have developed a mentality that everything should either last forever or be thrown out when it breaks. I actually kinda like fixing things and often can improve on them as I do. I promise that if mine fails I will make and post a video on how to fix it. I think this is just that good of an idea that it deserves the effort.
The ratchet works ok. Sometimes works, other times not so well. We had the upright ratchet version a few years ago and it stopped working after a while. The ratchet wasn't as important to us as the right fit.
After installing it, the holder was noticeably not level with the cabinet which didn't look that good. I was already not happy with it and then my wife noticed it without me mentioning it. I was able to bend it straight with a bit of elbow grease though so now it's level.
However, we purchased this item to stop our cat from unravelling the roll onto the counter top (which she is theoretically not allowed on) and it wasn't up to that task as can be seen in the picture. We had high hopes based on the "no unravelling" promise in the product description. Oh well, the search for a cat proof paper towel dispensing system continues.
