To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this for my 92 year old mom's kitchen. It is sturdy and so easy to pump. and has a large capacity so you don't have to fill it often. Mom was having trouble with the slippery dish soap bottles and this makes it so easy. The pump works great and the sponge holder is a great bonus. It has a large capacity so you don't have to fill it often. I love it, too, because you pump out exactly the right amount every time. No wasting soap. I am buying one for my sister and our vacation home. I'd highly recommend this.
I took away a star because of a design shortcoming with the pump lid. It does not securely twist into place and can be knocked loose and spilled far to easily. It has little or no detent and only twists a few degrees to latch. I've had this a couple years as a replacement for a Simple Human that "only" lasted about 15 years! The build quality is fine and the pump is big enough that one squirt is often enough. The dispenser is separate from the base/sponge holder which is smart.
Our SECOND of this model broke in the same place after less than six months of use by two careful adults. Both times, the plastic nubs that allow the pump to lock to the container broke. The company does not sell the poorly designed container separately, only the pump. Very disappointing.
This did not work well for us. The hole for the soap got easily plugged with dried soap and the whole container would often fall forward and cause a mess if someone pushed just a little too hard. Would not purchase again.
