The problem I have/had with it is purely cosmetic, and it is two-fold. When you first put a new roll of paper towels on, MOST of the black gripper pads are covered, so you see mostly stainless steel and it looks very nice on the counter. It doesn't take long though, before more and more of the black grippers start to show... and by the time you are even half-way through the roll, the black seems more noticeable than the stainless. Now, I wouldn't even care about this if not for the fact that those black gripper pads attract paper towel 'lint' like crazy!! Now, this may depend on the brand of paper towels you use, as some make more 'fuzz' than others. Even if you take the time to clean them daily (which I would recommend a wet microfiber cloth for as a wet paper towel just makes more of a mess with the lint/fuzz), they quickly become coated in fuzz again. I thought I would get used to this, and just clean those pads daily... but it just bothered me too much. I can tell from the other reviews that this must not be an issue for most, but it was for me. I couldn't stand the messy look of the fuzz... even when cleaning with a wet microfiber cloth, you either need to wait until the roll is used up, and clean before putting a new roll on, or you need to remove the current roll.... or you end up trying to clean the pads 'around' the role, with a wet cloth... making the paper towels wet. Again, may not be a big deal for most, but for me, part of having the stainless look is that it is simple and CLEAN, and that is just not the case with this one.
I ended up replacing it with the OXO Good Grips SimplyTear Standing Paper Towel Holder, Brushed Stainless Steel... and so far, am much happier with it. The base seems a bit smaller, and is not quite as heavy, so it has lifted a bit when tearing towels now and then. This one seems to require more of a 'method' to tearing the towel off in order to do it with one hand (and not have the base lift), but once I got used to it, I am able to easily tear a towel off with one hand, and the base stays put. (I make sure to tear the towel when the perforation is just barely past the tension arm, and I do tear downward, and fairly quickly... if the perforation is very far past the tension arm when I try to tear, the base tends to lift a bit, and require an extra hand to finish the tear.) The top of the base is ALL stainless, so no unsightly fuzz-covered black pads. The only concern I have with the OXO is that a tension 'arm' is used, and this seems to me to be something that might not hold up over time... but I'm willing to wait and see, and am going to order a spare of this one, just in case(;
Bottom line, the Polder works very well... and if you use paper towels that don't produce much 'lint' and if you don't mind that the black gripper pads are visible most of the time, then this seems to me to be the best of the bunch. If you don't want to see the black pads... and/or don't like the idea of having a layer of paper towel lint covering those black pads all of the time, then you might want to pick another model... such as the OXO I mentioned.
(1) I need to disconnect the top in order to remove the empty paper towel cardboard sleeve and put a new paper towel roll into place. I do this every few days, so it becomes tedious
(2) There is no resistance/ratchet gear for tension when I am trying to tear off a paper towel, so I wind up with a length beyond what I need, making this style of paper towel holder not suitable for tearing off the 1/2 sheet variety of paper towel, which I prefer
(3) There is no outer guide, so the paper towels tend to droop down and lie loose (unless I manually re-roll them) more & more as the roll becomes smaller
(4) The edge is already cracked from I don't know what - probably somebody grabbing for paper towels too vigorously and pulling it right off the counter
It also is very easy to refill. My mother has a towel holder which has a bolt with about 20 threads, and you are just endlessly turning the knob to get the top off to refill it. I'm going to buy her one of these, because all it takes is just a quick quarter-turn and the top is off.
I think it looks nice, too. The stainless steel with highlights of black should work with just about any kitchen decor.
I can't imagine finding a better paper towel holder than this!
UPDATE: I did buy one for Mom - and she absolutely loved it! After trying the Polder out, she was delighted to throw out her old paper towel holder and now wants to replace the ones in her second home with Polders, too.
