This is absolutely the best paper towel rack out there---see how it works in action in this quick 99 second video!
I didn't mention this, but it fits any size roll of paper towels.
The top "handle" on the simplehuman is a bit bulky, which clips on, and therefore is easier to move the unit around by grabbing onto it. The "handle" on the Polder is smaller, and screws on. Since it is smaller, it is a little harder to grab on, but I think it is more attractive on kitchen counter top.
On the simplehuman, the big black "flange" around the base is a bit oversized, and collects dust. The base on the Polder is more streamlined and does not collect as much dust. When I first glance as the simplehuman, I see lots of black plastic from the base flange, and the top handle. When I glance at the Polder, I see mostly brushed stainless.
I'm not sure why the flange on the simplehuman is so big. It does not seem to be necessary, and gets pretty dusty after only 1/2 a roll (of basic quality paper towels).
I first bought the simplehuman version, and had a hard time ripping basic-quality paper towls in full sheets, so decided to try the Polder version. Between the two, I think the Polder is easier to use. Using inexpensive paper-towels, I can generally (90% of the time) rip a single sheet in one piece, with one hand using the Polder more successfully than the simplehuman version (80%).
Overall, they are both excellent products, but my recommendation is the Polder KTH-6066-87. If you already have the simplehuman, there is no need to switch, unless you prefer a cleaner looking product.
We keep a roll of paper towels on the kitchen table instead of napkins (I have a LOT of children -- really a LOT!) and our old holder would knock over or fall over and then knock over other things in the process. This one is heavy with a wide base. It stays put, the towels stay neat and is so easy to use. The whole family agrees that this one is a keeper, and they are pretty picky about what items they think can withstand our family!!
It also looks very nice there on the counter and coordinates with my appliances perfectly. I plan on buying another one to keep next to my stove.
UPDATE: Jan, 2010.... I have washed my paper towel holders in the dishwasher many times and they are both still as nice as the day I bought them. I keep one on the counter and one on the table (instead of a napkin holder). I am still very pleased with this purchase.
UPDATE: Jan, 2013... Still using these same paper towel holders daily and they look as good as when I bought them. I just can't believe these have lasted so long and given me so much use without breaking or making me hate the look of them. I'm still happy.

and the heavier
SimpleHuman Quick Load
I thought the heavier one would work better (SimpleHuman).
It did NOT because the shaft/column has a SMALLER diameter than the paper towel cardboard.
Thus a quick pull down causes the towels to spend.
The Polder model has a wider shaft/column diameter.
The towel still turns easy enough but when you yank on the towel, it is tight enough NOT to spin freely.
Bottom Line is that I have BOTH.
The SimpleHuman sells for less than the Polder.
Note that I have this same review for the Polder.
If you have paper towels that have a much smaller diameter, then the SimpleHuman will be the way to go.
My tests were done using Scott brand.
If you jam a small piece of paper towel into the tube of the cardboard, this will help reduce the free wheeling of the paper towels. This makes it a lot easier to slowly tear a sheet off instead of using Kung Fu or Karate to get a single sheet.
Bottom LIne is if you already have this item, you can get it working like the Polder by placing a piece of paper towel between the column of the holder and the inside of the cardboard hole. Sorry for giving my honest review to all of you young people that love this.
Not that I've found. Astonishingly, I have to give this simple device its thirteenth five-star award. But why? What makes a paper towel holder better than other paper towel holders? They've been around a long time and one's pretty much like the next, right?
Wrongo, my friend. This uses something most others have always lacked.
Hey, that's all it took, a bit of common sense in designing what should have been a simple gadget decades ago. It's so simple you gotta wonder where the kitchenware inventors' minds have been.
First and foremost a truly weighted bottom, something you gotta feel to respect. Haven't we all had the holders fly across the kitchen when we quickly grab for a towel? Wow, the magnetic one on my refrigerator has practically seen the entire apartment, mostly floors. Wooden ones sooner or later split on impact.
Then add a deceptively simple edge on the bottom that nicely holds the roll in place and let's not forget the much-advertised-but-less-important (though it works very well) easy-off knob on top. You know what? When I think about having just lifted the holder by that knob to move it and it didn't come off, maybe that's more neat than I thought.
And finally -- wonder of wonders -- the use of good materials and craftsmanship. What'll they think of next, huh?
Yep, if you want to get excited over a paper towel holder, this is the one to do it for you. It may not be the cheapest; but it's worth every penny.
A bunch of us actually agree! This is one time you can read us all and believe.

Overall I really like this holder. My only complaint, other than horrible packaging, is that the bottom of the holder was folded. I assume the material wasn't glued properly? Read morePublished 1 month ago by Debra
