Customer Reviews
Scotch® Classic Desktop Dispenser is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have had this tape dispenser for many years and expect it to last for many more. It is great to be able to use one hand to pull out the amount of tape you need and easily cut it off where you want it. Would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tape Dispenser Love this tape dispenser. It is heavy enough where it doesn't move as I tear off tape. As a teacher, I often times only have one had available to grab a piece of tape, so this works perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As essential to my desk as my pencil Classic, weighted base allows you to tear tape pieces with one hand. Perfect at home too for wrapping presents, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Buying I bought myself a tape dispenser after buying my son one in blue. I love the black color. It goes on any counter or desk of mine. So much easier to dispense from this than the dispenser the tape comes in!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Use Dispenser The C-38 Scotch Tape Dispenser is the most easiest to use, that even children can use it! I love using my dispenser, I can use as much tape as I need and do it all by using only one hand, which frees the other hand to help hold or wrap or whatever project you are doing. Thank You for making my life a little easier Scotch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from desktop dispenser I have owned this dispenser for over 10 years. Sits firmly on the desk, yet not too heavy to move to the counter if needed. Would definitely buy another if needed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Years of Use! I have been using the Scotch Desktop Tape Dispenser for years, that is, the SAME ONE! It remains like new! On the bottom of this dispenser is the code C-38. It has never failed me, even the round plastic tape holder itself is perfect. This product is made by 3M of course. I do not anticipate ever having to replace this "indispensable" product and appreciate I the fact that I own Scotch products that are reliable and don't need replacing! A satisfied customer of 3M and Scotch.
