Classic design, made with quality materials. All pieces are threaded and breaks down to clean fast and the only thing you could break is the glass bowl. What's not to like? Would recommend and have.
Easy to use - just chilled the pipe in the freezer - fired it up. It gave smooth, tasty hits. It was easy to clean, as the whole thing can be pulled apart. I wasn't worried about breaking it. I am thinking about trying the bigger one also.
