Somehow kitchen drudge work became my responsibility. I’m not complaining, frankly it is easier to clean up than it is to cook. I like having a scrubber that lets me get the bulk of the crud off of the pots and dishes prior to putting them in the dishwasher. In addition I like something with a handle that lets me push stuff down the garbage disposal without sticking my hand in the disposal. The $20.00 price tag at Amazon on this may seem a tad high but consider that the wand with one scrubber installed goes for $4.50 to $5.50 and you are getting eleven more refills and the wand with installed refill for $20.00 you can see the savings. I use this and I like it. The heavy duty one does cut threw the hard, baked on stuff quite well. I still recommend soaking the baked on stuff though and yes I do this voluntarily.
