Dennis' love for design originated from the desire to balance his artistic creativity and his engineering sensibilities. Dennis first started with Umbra as a product design intern while pursuing his co-op work experiences prior to his senior undergraduate year. After graduating from Carleton University's School of Industrial Design with high distinction in 2009, Dennis has since returned to become a part of the vibrant design team at Umbra.Otto automatic soap dispenser by Umbra was designed with a soft inviting form that makes automatic pump technology more approachable. With a gentle taper at the neck, hands can comfortably cup outgoing liquid without having to touch a thing. Otto's sleek profile and glossy white finish with chrome accents blend with virtually any kitchen or bathroom decor style. Great for kids and adults alike, the hands-free operation reduces the spread of germs; Otto dispenses a fixed amount - not too much, not too little - helping to reduce waste and save on supply costs. The window on the front provides visibility to liquid levels.

Umbra Otto Automatic Soap Dispenser
not good. no star.
Ilma from Clarksville, MD– Verified Buyer
Not very good. The battery area got rusted. I want a replacement.
Doesnt work well
Terry from New York
This sleek-looking soap dispenser is all it has going for it. It doesn't work with dish soap. You have to swipe your hand under the sensor three or four times before it dispenses a couple of drops of soap. Not worth the price tag. I'm returning it.
Looks and works great!
Carman from Omaha, NE– Verified Buyer
My friend had this in her kitchen. There is not another automatic soap dispenser out there that is as stylish as this one. It also dispenses just the right amount of soap, so not a lot of waste. I have a stainless steel sink and faucet and this fits right in with my decor..
Sleek and Covenient

This product lives up to all of our expectations! I hesitated to pay $30.00 but the product is worth it. All of our friends and family love it too. You can turn it off when you don't want to trigger the soap. A purple light goes on while it's dispensing, You have to hold your hand just beneath the dispenser so if you place you hand or another object down at counter height you don't have to worry about accidentally triggering the soap. I'm a gardener and do-it-yourselfer and I often have grubby hands.I just love it! It helps me keep the bathroom cleaner, and anything that does that is a winner.
works well and looks nice
Natane from Oakdale, CA– Verified Buyer
Works pretty well. Looks nice. Wish the material was a little more substantial though. Made of a light sort of plastic material. I usually would have purchased the Simple Human auto dispenser but I liked the way this one looked and the price was better. Easy to load the soap. Would recommend especially for guest bathroom or child's bathroom.

This soap pump works, i purchased a replacement because the first one lasted about one year, then water leaking into the battery compartment caused it to rust the battery contacts, until it finally died.
Not very good
Leslie from Houston, TX– Verified Buyer
This product says that it can handle dishsoap, but it constantly clogs and stops working. In addition, there is no control over the amount that comes out--so you barely get a dribble. You end up actuating 2 or 3 times to get enough soap for a single dish.
L Saul from Atlanta
I love the light on the dispenser an the size of the unit. I might buy another one ! I am using this in my salon bathroom .
EILEEN from Mesa, AZ– Verified Buyer
DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY---YOU MUST SWIPE THE AREA THAT ALLOWS SOAP TO BE DISPENSED SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE SOAP IS PROVIDED---THE MOTOR MAKES NOISE BUT NO SOAP. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS ITEM UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE DISSAPOINTED.
Wendy Chaplin from Warrensburg, MO
Bought two loved the classy style and blackgold() was perfect color for our new bathroom. We have had them three months, used simplyhuman soap in one and softsoap in other ( I wanted to see the difference), both worked great 1st month, now neither can hardly pump the soap out. Husband and son stopped using theirs out of frustration. I have checked batteries, cleaned nozzel, and added water to soap, nothing helped. So disappointed on such a great idea and style! See lots others have had same problem. Sent email to your customer service, was not impressed with reply of just return them to store. Gave it 2 stars for syle and color. Hope you will improve the malfutions and battery lid.
