1. Design kitchen roll holder: the right size

Standard sizes for utilitarian items often vary depending on the country of manufacture - and kitchen roll holders are no exception. Therefore, you should keep the following measurements in mind when buying a kitchen roll holder:

The conventional German size for kitchen rolls has a length of 26 cm and the diameter of the roll is about 11.5 cm. However, the diameter is highly dependent on the amount of kitchen towels on a roll and the number of layers, e.g. 2-ply or 3-ply. If you prefer jumbo rolls, make sure that the base is large enough so that the kitchen roll does not overhang.

2. Ergonomics and handling

Kitchen roll holders are mobile kitchen helpers that are not only used in the kitchen and for cooking, but also for cleaning. When transporting them, it is important to have a secure grip so that the paper roll holder does not fall out of your hand. From the classic knob (1) to a practical swivelling wooden handle (3) to leather (2) or metal loops (4), the options for handle design are very diverse.

Particularly practical is a kitchen roll holder with roll-off stop, as this enables one-handed use.

3. Kitchen roll holders and their material

Whether kitchen roll holder for the wall or for standing - a wide range of materials allows the perfect integration into your kitchen. While stainless steel (4), marble (2) and leather (5) look noble but also cool, a kitchen roll holder made of wood (3) radiates cosiness. In contrast, plastic (6) is particularly light in weight. Powder-coated or painted metal (1) offers a wide range of colours and is stable and robust despite its filigree elements.

Expert tip Kitchen roll holders made of shiny metal - especially chrome-plated stainless steel - look very high-quality, but they also need to be wiped regularly with a damp cloth to maintain the look.
