Review of the Kitsure Paper Towel Holder; Plastic, But Still Nice

We love paper towel holders! It’s a strange thing to test extensively, but we’ve already tested several from OXO Good Grips, as well as one from Dr. Catch.

Today, we’re taking a look at the Kisure paper towel holder.

It’s a decent paper towel holder that looks like it’s made with real metal. In reality, it’s all plastic. But it still works well and has a nice look to it.

Here’s our video review.

Key Takeaways

  • The paper towel holder is nicely weighted and has a non-stick grip on the bottom to prevent it from sliding around.
  • The top piece can be unscrewed and the paper towel roll can be inserted.
  • The holder keeps paper towels contained and can be picked up by the paper towels themselves.
  • It has a locking function for one-handed operation.
  • It is sleek and doesn’t dominate the countertop.
  • The construction is fine but the threads are plastic, not metal.

A Review of the Kitchen Paper Towel Holder

We recently purchased the kitchen paper towel holder and wanted to share our review. Here are a few key features we noticed right off the bat.

Weighted and Stationary

The paper towel holder is nicely weighted and will stay stationary on the countertop. It has a stainless steel look, but it is made of all plastic.

The bottom has a non-stick grip surface to prevent it from sliding around.

Inserting the Paper Towels

To insert the paper towels, you simply unscrew the top part, insert the roll over the top, and screw it back in clockwise.

The nice thing about this holder is that it keeps everything contained so you can pick it up without the paper towels falling out.

Pull or Lock Feature

When you pull the paper towel off, you can also push down on the holder to lock it in place. This allows you to use one hand to pull a paper towel off. To unlock, you simply pull it up again.

Design and Quality

The design of this holder looks great on the countertop and it doesn’t add extra size. Quality construction wise, we noticed that the threads are plastic and not metal, which could affect the product’s longevity.

Overall, we are quite pleased with this paper towel holder and we think it will do well in our kitchen, although we would have preferred to have at least some metal elements.
