Excellent design and functionality - this is our second one. Our first (gray) one last nearly 3 years. Love the cream color, perfect. But it got dirty so quickly (within 2 months - and we're sorta neat freaks) and doesn't clean very easily. The original gray one we bought years ago stayed clean much longer and was easier to clean when it did finally get dirty. I suggest staying away from cream. Our next one (after having this one for only less than a year) will be gray, black, or brown.
