K37642 - Genius Wrapper Plastic Wrap and Aluminum Foil Dispenser
Won't pull out with 100 or 200 ft.
This product is not as good as the original wrap master which I have. This product binds as you pull out the 200 ft plastic wrap. The top stays opened, but the blades can be locked shut. I wish QVC would get the original 3 set wrap master back, they were the best. The entire top locks down and the plastic / aluminum foil / wax paper is installed on a wire which the ends are securely fastened with end caps to keep it off the plastic so it won't bind like the genius wrap master. Not worth the money for the genius.
OK but does take up counter space
It is what it is. I like how i can pull out a long piece of plastic wrap without it getting tangled, but more often than not the plastic wrap slips out of the two pieces of clear plastic that holds it in place so I have to lift up the top piece and grab the plastic and pull it forward. The holder is also about a foot long which means it takes up counter space. In my small kitchen, counter space is limited to items of necessity. The juries still out on this one for me. When it works, it's nice to have. Perhaps it works better with aluminum foil.
Would appreciate someone telling me what size saran wrap or whatever brand fits this. Can't find one with a role small enough to fit correctly inside so it rolls smoothly. It would have been helpful when it was demonstrated on-air if this information was supplied.
A pain to use
I only like the fact that it cuts easier than when the plastic is in the box that it comes in. Other than that I don't like this dispenser. It's bulky and doesn't fit in the drawer. I have to fish inside to get the beginning of the plastic roll each time.
I purchase a set of the dispenser years and I use them every day. They are wonderful. My daughter just recently had a birthday and I purchased her two of these. She uses them for aluminum foil and parchment paper. They are amazing! She loves them.
This Genius needs some help
Thought this would be a great kitchen helper. It's not. The plastic wrap (Saran Wrap) does not sit right. The rollers don't fit. The wrap slides down into the holder and has to be fished out and repositioned. Easy? Not! Especially when you have to find the beginning each time. Should have returned it, but the return postage wasn't worth it. Just purchased the Wraptastic from MarkCharles via his TV commercial. Reviews on QVC said it's much better than this "Genius".
Does NOT work
Cheap flimsy plastic that falls apart & does not work. Don't waste your $
No more wrestling with plastic wrap. It works great. Thanks QVC!!!
I bought a set yrs ago from QVC. One was for plastic wrap and the other for cling wrap. They worked perfectly until a friend broke it but this one would not work for us. Only tried plastic wrap however it wouldn't hold together. I hate spending S&H again to return. Second time disatisfied with QVC in twenty yrs. Not bad.
I can't imagine how much plastic wrap I have wasted over the years. This works like a dream. The only down side is needing so much counter space to wrap but I don't see any way around that. I am addicted to ITKWD.
SUCH a cool product!!! :D
I love these dispensers!!! I got 2, and I am so glad I did!!! It really works just like in the presentations...the plastic wrap never bunches up, and I am able to use less, because I don't have to allow for extra to "scrunch up" on me before I get my food items wrapped!!! :D I have my aluminum foil in my other dispenser, and the blade really is wonderfully sharp!! Cuts EASILY through both the plastic And the foil!!!
And yes, you really do need At LEAST ONE!!! It will help keep the peace in your house!!! ;) :D
I bought a green for my plastic wrap and a blue for my tin foil and then I got the same thing for my brother as he does catering and I always notice he has a hard time with the plastic wrap always sticking back on to its self....just love this product
