Metal piece comes off with the tape -- it's a waste of your money!
I love the shape of this and it goes well with the pop-up dispenser, both of which are black and look good on my black countertop in my remodeled kitchen. However, I am dismayed by how often the metal piece (that you use to cut off the tape) comes out and sticks to the tape. I am constantly having to "rescue it" and disentangle it from the tape and to re-insert it back onto the "lip" of the tape dispenser. What a hassle! Once it fell into the trash as I was trying to grab it ... I had to go thru all of the disgusting trash to rescue it from the bottom of the trash bin. It needs to be better made than this, esp. for the price I had to pay for this particular tape dispenser. I have gone back to using the old, black Scotch tape dispenser I bought in NY a long time ago.
Did not realize that this dispenser has a wider opening on the right side than the left side. This is not handy for a left-handed person if you cannot adjust to using your right hand. Otherwise it's a great product.

We needed a tape dispenser that could be used in our copy room as well as our front desk. It needed to be practical and attractive. This dispenser is nicely weighted so you can pull off pieces easily. It is also beautifully designed to blend attractively with modern office décor.
