I was impressed right away with the quality of this appliance holder. I can’t imagine how this could ever break, it is made from heavy duty metal and is extremely durable. You can either mount this on a wall or just use it on the counter, which is the option I choose. The tubes fit all curling irons and flat irons up to 2″ wide. I love that the spot for the hair dryer has a foam pad in it, which helps the hair dryer not slip around.
