This might sound a bit lazy but when washing pots and pans, I have to keep grabbing the dish liquid, turn it upside down with soapy hands and squirt the soap on the sponge several times when washing, Lol !! But I kid you not, just being able to press the spong on the dispenser and the soap is pulled up into the sponge makes washing dishes a bit more enjoyable and I get done a lot quicker !! The dispenser is of great quality, not cheaply made at all ! Very easy to add soap, put the sponge drain on which captures excess water to pour out easilty !! Comes with a Great Quality Sponges as well !! I Love it !!
