Does a fine job, but a bit overpriced First off, I should state that I got this on clearance for less than $20 (minus 20%!). So my perceptions of it are based on that price, rather than nearly $40, which I would probably not have paid for. So please read the review with that in mind. However, I generally liked this shower caddy. I think that it looks quite nice, and I found it quite spacious for my purposes. I particularly liked the bamboo look over the metal of most of the other shower caddies that I've seen. The hooks on the bottom were, for me, a nice touch, as it allowed me to hang brushes, etc., from it. The hook would slide an inch or so from the very top of the shower head pipe, simply because there was not much to grip on, but it never slid off, nor was it even close to sliding off. You might want to try it out in your shower right away, just to make sure, and consider returning it if it doesn't look secure. It's true that eventually, the bamboo will start to get a little discolored. But I don't know how anyone expects that they can put any piece of wood in a shower environment for years on end, and not have something happen to it. And to be clear, we're talking about slight discoloration after a year or so, not as if the whole thing turns black. I used a bleach-based cleaner (like Soft Scrub) to significantly improve the look. For something really intense, maybe try Clorox, or a dedicated shower mildew remover. Moreover, I found that the bamboo lasted FAR longer than metal shower caddies that I had in the past, which started rusting in weeks. Yes, it true that the metal on this caddy get start to form rust as well, but its such a small amount of metal that the rust can be cleaned off easily (again, with Soft Scrub). In all, I had it three years, before giving it away to a friend, when I was moving and didn't want to take a bunch of things with me. It certainly looked a lot more faded than when I bought it, and perhaps a bit past it's prime, but all in all, I think it was a perfectly good deal for the price that I paid for it. October 24, 2012
You're crazy if you buy this Recently bought this. Wish I had saved the receipt because it would go right back. It doesn't stay on the shower pipe. It keeps slipping off. Was VERY poorly thought out. JUNK! September 11, 2012
Disappointed Thought this would be better - especially at the price it is! Rust started appearing in two weeks. Have looked at all teak caddies - $70?! Please! All the bad things in other reviews are true (wood turns black, rubber decays). The one who loves it - she just hadn't had it long enough. May 11, 2012
What a bummer! This product is a real bummer! The metal bars on it rust out in about a month. If any water sits on the shelves between showers it grows black mold. Also, the bars on the shelves are not high enough. The bottles etc. fall off all the time. It is an expensive item to be poorly made. December 15, 2011
