~WILKO KITCHEN ROLL HOLDER~
~~WHY I BOUGHT THIS KITCHEN ROLL HOLDER~~
My previous kitchen roll holder was a bit unique, it had a glass base. Last year I was extremely disappointed when it accidentally dropped to the kitchen floor and the base shattered into pieces. Needless to say it just missed my foot and I had tiny pieces of glass all over on my kitchen floor. All I had left was a metal rod which could not do the job, of holding my kitchen rolls. Because it was dear to me it took me sometime to replace it. When I finally decided to do so, I wasn't prepared to spend much anymore so I compared a few from the high street shops and settled for this one from Wilkinson.
~~DESCRIPTION & KEY FEATURES~~
The roll holder is made of chrome plated thin metal rods. Four metal rods are joined together in a rectangular shape to form the main stem frame instead of the hollow metal rod which forms the main frame in a lot of roll holders. The base is also made up of concentric metal rings attached to the central main frame and to two side shields. The shields are located opposite each other and one is almost double the height of the other. Below the metal base are three round metal balls which act as the feet for the roll holder so helping to raise it above the ground/work surface.
Dimensions: 33 cm high
21 cm and 10 cm high (2 side shields)
~~PACKAGING, AVAILABILITY & PRICE~~
The roll holder comes free standing with no packaging, so what you see is what you get. No assembling is required. It is distributed in the UK by Wilkinson and the bargain price in February 2013 was £2.75.
~~EASE OF USE AND BENEFITS~~
It is fairly easy to use and does not have a manual. All it has is a label with a bit of information on care and use, wilko promise on exchange and returns and the manufacturer/distributor details.
The roll holder has a design different from the common ones but universal enough to hold most of the standard kitchen rolls. The side shields serve the purpose of keeping the kitchen roll in place and from unwinding on its own but they also make it easy to unwind the roll whilst in position when needed.
It is a good space saver too as the rolls can be stored, used and held in an upright position, rather than letting the roll lie down on the kitchen surface or in a drawer.
It is very light weight and easy to carry. It is fairly easy to clean, all you need to do is wipe it with a damp cloth.
The colour, silver, fits in well with the colour scheme in my kitchen.
The roll holder is fairly sturdy, does not topple over or buckle easily. Because of the light weight, it causes no harm even if it falls on the floor.
The chrome plating should guard it against rusting so keeping it nice looking for long.
~~OVER ALL OPINION ~~
This roll holder looks nice and stylish for my needs. It does the job perfectly and is a good space saver too. This one will last and serve its purpose for as long I still need it.
Yes I would recommend it and rating 5/5 for me.
Thank you for reading and rating
