While the stand with cutter is made in China, the twine is made in the USA--good to know when you're going to be using it on food. My stand did not have a protruding bolt on the bottom as others have mentioned. Perhaps they have fixed that problem--the bolt on mine is recessed (I bought this on May 9, 2011).
Also good to know: this is a half cone of twine, not a full cone (500 ft vs. 1200 ft). If you buy a full cone later to replace the one it came with, you will not be able to use the cutter, as it will be hidden inside the cone. Be aware that you must replace this with a half cone.
And, twine is so much better than cooking string! But I was always misplacing the twine.
The base isn't held on very well (four little sharp blades) and came off in shipping, but that's okay. I gave it a shot of wood glue and banged it back on. It'll keep on holding fine since the wood is unfinished. If I'd wanted to paint it for any reason, it would actually be easier to do without the spike part attached.
I did wipe it with mineral oil, like I do all my woodenware, so it won't stain.
The cutter works well.
I'm very pleased with this little workhorse.
Further, I am a meat-cutter by trade and I work everyday with butcher's twine, and this ain't it! The "string" here is just that - loosely woven, thick cotton twine not properly suited for use with food dishes that you would want to present to guests.. I could easily fix this with a steel washer and a longer screw, but I don't feel I should pay full price for something that arrives defective, nor should I have to put effort into making something right that should have come that way. Even had it arrived in tact, it would not have been worth the cost.
I am returning this and, for another few dollars, will buy a similar product elsewhere with a hardwood spindle/base and a cotton/linen blended string.
Each day when I've finished reading the WSJ, I roll each section folded in half into a narrow cylinder and tie it with string so it stays rolled up. These paper 'sticks' go in the fireplace to help light the wood fire to begin with or get the flame going again if it dies down too much. They burn really well--longer than you'd expect.
The string I was using was in a clear plastic container with a cutter. The container had melted a bit from having gotten too close to the heat at some point so was sort of misshapen, plus the cutter wasn't sharp and I had to really jerk on the string to cut it. As the string got to running out, I started my search for a replacement and was surprised to discover most kitchen string holders, not only don't have cutters, they are metal so you can't see how much string is left and could run out unexpectedly. There was one cute rooster holder with a cutter but it was huge--almost a foot high, which is way too big for my counter, more like the sort of thing you'd have in a store to tie up parcels, although I don't guess they do that anymore.
I may paint this holder since it's just bare wood (although has a nice smooth finish) to give it a bit of flair. Even without flair, it's very functional and that is my top priority. I can get refills when needed and it suits the purpose. If you want a string holder with a cutter, this is about the best you'll find.
