Rated 5 out of 5 by BeckyN Adds such a nice touch to the kitchen!
This looks so nice in the kitchen. It was easy to install (although you have to provide your own screws) and easy to change out the papertowels. It was a great purchase!

This product was exactly what I was looking for in my kitchen. It is very well made, sturdy. I think my husband had to find screws to attach under the cabinet, but otherwise I am satisfied with this product.

We recently remodeled our kitchen and chose to go with black hardware and accent pieces instead of the currently popular oil rubbed bronze. It was quite by accident that we stumbled upon this piece at Ballard Designs. And we're very glad we did.
A number of reviewers loved the piece, but some voiced frustration that getting the finials (we have the scroll fleur finials) to line up with each other was difficult.
We solved that problem. I got a small black plastic washer that's used in sealing valve stems in faucets, drilled out the center hole to more closely match the diameter of the screw on the towel holder, and tightened the finial on the washer end until it matched the position of the other end (the end we take off to place towels on the holder).
If needed I can loosen or tighten the washer end to match the other end. The washer is virtually invisible - even with close inspection. 20 seconds of drilling the washer and putting it in place was all the "hassle" it took to never have to worry about the finials. I've included a photo of the washer, a closeup of the end with the washer installed, and a shot of the holder to show alignment of the finials. Now all that's needed it an attractive paper towel!
We really like the holder. It's very sturdy, very good looking, and, I think, looks more expensive that it is. We've heartily recommended this holder to our friends.

I had been searching everywhere for an under-cabinet paper towel holder so as not to clutter my countertops. My kitchen has a sort of Tuscan look to it, and this product is perfect! It totally matches my decor, and is a well-made, high quality item. I highly recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Catbalu This paper towel holder is great.
Not only is this paper towel holder functional but it is really very attractive. We bought it during our kitchen remodeling and it fit the new decor to a tea. We mounted it under one of the new cabinets, simple to install, and it looked perfect. We've had a number of compliments on it. Imagine that! Compliments on a paper towel holder!! Additional, I had a question about the towel holder prior to my purchase. I sent an e-mail and I received a response the next business day. Bravo. Biggest plus... the Price !

The finish and quality is great. The only con is that you have to unscrew an end each time to change roll.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SweetSweetMama Beautiful, but a little larger than expected
I chose this product as I was looking for something durable and pretty...I was tired of replacing cheap plastic holders, and a recent minor kitchen makeover prompted me to add several wrought iron accessories. This product is beautiful, and I have no doubt it will last. However, I chose the spiral ball finials, and they are huge! The finials are about the size of a small grapefruit. I would have chosen a different finial had I realized their size. And, it's a little inconvenient to have to unscrew a finial to replace the roll - my husband refuses to do it and will leave the new roll standing on the counter in front of it for me to replace. It doesn't bother me to do it, as it just takes a few seconds, although I wonder how long the screw threads will last. All of that said, I do like the product and would recommend it to others.

This is a very well made, beautiful and sturdy paper towel holder. I'm so pleased with my purchase! I saw mentioned on others reviews that the finials that screw on the ends do not match up. What I do is when I replace the paper towel, I screw the finial back on until tight, then reverse it just a little to line up with the other finial. Although one finial is just a tad loose when doing this, it makes no difference to the paper towel security, and it looks very balanced and nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Updater Beautiful. Wish it was handier to refill, but beauty is pain.
This is a beautiful paper towel holder. We mounted it on the wall. The only reason why I didn't rate it 5 stars is that in order to refill the paper towels, you have to unscrew an end, pull the rod out, place a new roll on the rod, replace the rod, and then screw the end back on.
My mother has a wall mounted paper towel holder. It was nicer to refill, because the end fitted through the holder, and there was no need to unscrew anything.
But is is very lovely, and a great addition to our Kitchen as we are trying to update.

Well made and love the style. Why not throw a couple of wood screws in the box and make it perfect?

Rated 4 out of 5 by deblm Happy with the holder
I do like the under the counter holder. I love the space it opend on my counter and the look! My one complaint is you would need two hands to use this. It would be nice if there was a bar to hold the roll in place and remove with one hand. Also a minor issue no screws were included with the hanger. It was not an issue with us but could be if you don't have any.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ocgwen attractive but not so easy to change
I love the look of the holder, but find it a pain to change the roll of towels because you have to unscrew one of the end decorations to do so. It is heavy so if you drop it on anything while changing, it could break something fragile below it.

This is a beautiful paper towel holder. It is nice and solid and very stylish. I attached it to the bottom of a large spice rack I have on the wall. Great space saving idea. Thanks.

I have been eyeing this product forever. And we finally moved into our forever house, so I immediately bought it. It looks fabulous. We also have the 2 tier basket for fruit that goes on the counter. So it completes our kitchen:)
I would buy it again and again!

the perfect towel holder that matches the other accents in my kitchen and breakfast room. love the French feel and rust patina. i had an on-the-counter paper towel holder, but this is much neater and yields more counter space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KRC1 Love this paper towel holder. Keeps countertop clutter free!
I have bought 5 of these papertowel holders now. One for my previous home which I left when I sold it because it really made a statement in the kitchen. I then bought one for my new house for the kitchen. Just now I bought 3 more- one for the laundry room to hang under my cabinet above my deep wash sink, one for my bonus room upstairs and another for our beach house. They are very rich looking but really are not very expensive.
The wrought iron is substantial not cheap looking. The knob twists on and off easily without stripping so it is easy to change out papertowel when empty. Definitely one of my Ballard favorites. I am goign to start buying this as my house warming present for friends!

I have had this wrought iron paper towel holder for over ten years. My daughter in law recently mentioned how much she admired it . I gave her one for a gift and she was thrilled. It looks great -as does mine ten+ years and three houses later!

I purchased this towel holder to be a more sophisticated option in my kitchen. It may be a slight hassle to unscrew the finial to replace a roll, however, the overall effect is lovely. It is a heavy, solid piece. The black metal is rough to the touch, but this gives it character and a richer look. This will definitely handle even the thickest rolls of towels. I do wish it had come with its own screw set. We had to supply those. I loved it so much, I subsequently ordered another one with different finials for my laundry room. It immediately "classed up the joint"! Absolutely worth the price for the visual impact.

It is a pretty paper towel holder and what I was hoping to find. The only draw back is changing the paper towels is a bit of a pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NicInVAB Still a favorite, even after 7 years!
I have this installed under my cabinet in my kitchen, next to my sink. Not only is it gorgeous and functional (taking paper towels off the countertop,) but it also has stood the test of time and DAILY usage. Black powdercoat finish is still as perfect as the first day I got it! Simple installation (just a couple screws) and durable.
