Ingenious Invention!This thing is really ingenious! I was looking for something to combine the last bit of conditioner from almost used bottles into a fuller bottle, and this did the trick. The bottles did not tip over despite being left overnight (though I made sure my bottles were out of the way, so no one would knock them over, and the bottom bottles had a lot of product in them, which I'm sure helped weigh them down). It worked on these bottles so far: Nexxus Youth Renewal Conditioner (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SWRWMU4/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00SWRWMU4&linkCode=as2&tag=dragonundergl-20&linkId=IWH755ER67VE3HXJ), Nexxus Youth Renewal Shampoo (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AE07FUE/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00AE07FUE&linkCode=as2&tag=dragonundergl-20&linkId=64HRFFF6I5YFSNLX) and several varieties of Wen conditioning shampoo (bottles like this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0089AA8RS/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B0089AA8RS&linkCode=as2&tag=dragonundergl-20&linkId=WIZBEWG43GRZNT5K ).I'm very happy with this product and think its design is simple but awesome.
5Has already paid for itself in one use!Works well, even with heavier bottles. I was hesitant to buy, because I had tried previously a large silicone funnel that was intended for the same use as the Smart Funnel. The silicone funnel would not stabilize larger bottles. I had to prop the top bottle up against something and hope it didn't fall over. With the Smart Funnel, I've already transferred a highly viscous lotion in a large bottle to another, with no problem whatsoever. The Smart Funnel washed nicely in my dishwasher and has already paid for itself in product saved. One of the best features is that its components rotate around the same axis. You are able to swing the clips or the funnel out of the way if need be; although, I can't think of a scenario where I would. I'm VERY happy with my purchase and plan on buying some as gifts. Pros: sturdy, accommodates many size bottles and configurations, washes well, holds bottles stable, able to be used for other functions (storing liquids...see packaging for examples), inexpensive (even more so if purchased in bulk), nice color selections. Cons: None
5A fantastic idea but needs to be larger!!!When I received this product I was excited about it and thought it was exactly what I needed. Although the product works well, it has its limitations. I am a very thrifty person and always have bottles "spout to spout" trying to transfer the last little bit into another bottle.CONS:The main problem is the funnel needs to have a larger cup and pour spout. With the funnel being this size, thicker products (like lotions, shampoos, conditioners or liquid soaps) spill over the edge before it has time to drain in bottom bottle.Does not work on larger gallon sized bottles.Weight distribution plays an important part so a heavy bottle on top of an empty bottle will fall over and spill.PROS:Excellent for refilling products.Great for draining the last bit of product from bottle.Comes in different colors.Great quality with strong, sturdy clamps that easily secures to different size bottles.Great for combining 2 bottles of condiments together (ketchup, mustard, ranch etc).Can be used for many different items:Health & beauty items such as lotions, shampoos, conditioners, liquids soaps, etc.Condiments like honey, salad dressings, ketchup, mustard, syrup and more.Household cleaning products like window cleaner, bleach cleaner, all purpose cleaner, dish detergent plus many more.Auto items such as oil, antifreeze, wiper fluid, car cleaning products, engine treatments....To sum up: I do love this product and use it often but it would be more beneficial if it had a larger cup and pour spout. Buy one for food items and one for cleaners (do not use same unit for food and cleaners) I would recommend purchasing this item.
4Getting that last dropI was looking for something to transfer the small remaining bits of product that was versatile than a bottle coupler (something that I only saw at Container Store http://www.containerstore.com/shop?productId=10034712&N=&Ntt=bottle+coupler) but found this!PROS:-adjustable clamps on both ends to fit various sized bottle openings-fairly large enough funnel end to prevent blocked (fairly) viscous liquids. i transferred shampoo and it was great.-easy to clean. the funnel end is large enough where my pinky can help clean it or use a q-tip. the upper clamp swivels away to help make cleaning easier.-springs on the clamps and plastic feels pretty sturdy-simple, no fuss design, easy to useCONS:-whatever you're transferring, it will be exposed to the surrounding air/environment. if it's food and it's going to take awhile to drip because it's viscous, then yes, debris in the air or bugs around it will probably float onto the funnel and down into the next container transferring to if you don't somehow wrap it or store it away.Considerations:-the funnel end limits the size of the bottle you're transferring to. a bottle with a diameter greater than ~1.5cm is needed. but this isn't a negative to me because it depends on what your own bottles you'll be using. the smaller the funnel, the slower the transfer.-a more viscous liquid probably won't drip through the funnel very well but i think something with the consistency of perhaps, maple syrup would work (but i won't be trying this). i bought this for non-food items.-bottles probably should be leaned against something because this gadget seems okay to balance a (large) bottle but I wouldn't want to put too much stress on the plastic parts, just in case. i wouldn't expect a gadget like this to not require leaning up against something anyway.-yes, made in China-consists of ABS plastic material
5Works With Skin Lotion.I hate throwing away any of the left-over product - yes, I am cheap.The easiest and cleanest way I have found to get those last few ounces of Vaseline Intensive Care lotion out of the bottle. The bottles will stay upright for 24 hours. The viscosity vs. funnel opening is such that you may have to 'bounce' the set-up on the counter (using two hands to keep it together) once or twice during the transfer.When the top bottle is empty, remove it and you may have to 'bounce' the funnel empty as well. At this viscosity level, I also put a hole in the top bottle for air flow. You won't get it all in 24 hours, but you get enough to make the process worthwhile.Clean-up is easy.If my description does not make sense, just connect the bottles and leave it for 24-48 hours, disconnect, trash the empty, then clean your funnel. You won't transfer as much, but you will have recovered enough.
5Will pay for itself in no time!This little set up is great! I don t splurge on a lot but I love my Philosophy body wash and Unite shampoo/conditioner. Needless to say I try everything to get every little drop but ended up frustrated having to store the bottles upside down only to have them fall off the ledge in the shower and scare the hell out of me or my family. Saw this and decided to give it a go. When I would give up previously and throw away a bottle with product inside my heart hurt, but with this gadget I get at least 5-8 more showers from my body wash alone. It works on the large pump dispenser bottles as well. Easy to clean just throw it on the top rack in the dishwasher.
5I Love This Little GadgetBack when I was a kid, I remember my mom would always have us kids take the empty bottle of ketchup and invert it over a new bottle in order to get every drop. We were a family of 8, and my mom knew how to save her pennies.The only problem was that invariably one of my siblings would walk by and bump the table or slam our heavy front door and ketchup would go flying.When I saw this gadget it reminded me of growing up, but I also keep the tradition of saving my pennies. I thought I'd give it a try and I bought it.I really love it. The clips hold the bottles together and it fits on many different sized bottles. I know this is a silly thing to get excited about, but I love this little gem!
5Good idea, brittle plasticOne of these broke with normal, light, rare use. Seems to be very brittle plastic. I bought a second one--same problem. Don't waste your money. I will try an alternate product from a different manufacturer.
1The thinner the fluid, the more success you'll haveI keep lotion within reach at all times. Around the house, I prefer to use decorative ceramic lotion bottles rather than the manufacturer s bottle. I prefer Vaseline Intensive Care lotion, which is pretty thick, and it has proved difficult to transfer to the decorative bottles.I ve tried just pumping the lotion into the receiving bottle, and this takes forever and a day. Then I tried warming the bottle of lotion to thin it so it would pour easier, but this didn t work as well as I had hoped. Then for years, I squeezed a bunch of lotion into a gallon size Ziploc bag, snipped a corner off and used it to fill the ceramic bottles. This worked, but it was tedious, messy, and wasted a bunch of lotion left inside the bag.Then I found the Smart Funnel and bought it from Amazon. This works, but again the lotion is too thick to easily flow through it. While I wouldn t mind propping the manufacturer bottle atop the ceramic bottle and leaving it to pour for a day or so, that runs the risk of overflowing the lotion onto the counter, making a mess and wasting good lotion. The Smart Funnel is not ideal for a thick substance like the lotion I use, but you can either warm the lotion to thin it, or babysit the transfer and poke it through the funnel with a straw or something similar.What the Smart Funnel has been great for is my shampoo, conditioner, and liquid soap. I like these big bottles of Pantene shampoo and conditioner that have pumps in them, but they are hard to find. Now that I have a pair, I ve used the Smart Funnel to empty a regular bottle into my pump bottle. Both Pantene shampoo and conditioner have worked very well for this.I also keep liquid hand soap in decorative dispensers by all of the sinks. This isn t so hard to pour in normally, but when the refill bottle is nearly empty, it can take a while to get those last drops out unless you are willing to just dispose of it. With the Smart Funnel, I can set the nearly empty bottle over one of my dispensers and get almost every drop of soap out.This funnel may or may not work for you. You need to determine how thick the substance you want to transfer is and also how much time you are willing to put into watching the process or fiddling with it. It doesn t work as well for lotion as I had hoped, but I think it is an improvement over other processes I ve tried, so I am glad I bought it.
4Quite possibly my favorite thing on Amazon everI have long hair so I go through shampoo and conditioner like it's going out of style. As such I like to get every last drop out of my bottles of products. This little gadget has made such a huge difference in terms of convenience. It works exactly as shown in the pictures and can hold even the large bottles of shampoo. I don't need to use the funnels I use for cooking any more which is great because they were a hassle to clean thoroughly to make sure everything was out of them. I use this exclusively for hair product so I don't have to worry about it as much.No more leaning and balancing bottles!
