So far working fine. Same unit as others with similar shape but different brand. I ruined one unit by preheating the water too hot before adding it to the unit which blew the over-heat cutoff, so be careful not to exceed the stated limit. Preheating the water with a microwave speeds up the cleaning process. Following directions and using adequate amounts of cleaning agents, I found that it took far longer to get brass really clean than stated - usually needed to run these units 3-4X as long. If you do not use the basket, cleaning time is shortened significantly. You may still need to clean out the inside of shells with a small brush or Q-tip for stubborn deposits. I usually use a combo of this unit and also a agitator with abrasive chips to get the brass really clean. No opinion as to which one to use first. Buy the larger bottles of cleaner solution as you will use it up quickly.
