"I really enjoy my Pot Maker. I think it's a good idea that helps us all live a little bit "greener." Who needs to spend $7 on the pre-potted kits you can buy at the store when you can get old newspapers for FREE and make your own?! It's true that once you make the pot, it takes a little work to get the newspaper off the top piece, but if you don't wrap it too tightly, it comes off just fine. The quality of The Pot Maker is very good. It's nice looking, easy to grip, and is extremely simple to use. I plan on utilizing this item for many years in the future!"

"Very good tool for the small gardener. In an afternoon and with a daily edition of the local paper I made enough small paper pots to begin my hot house pre- planting. The process became sort of meditational. I look forward to making more pots for next years expanded garden."

"Love the Potmaker. I volunteer at a local nature center and we host many class trips. We are expecting 120 kindergarten children one day next month and will be planting seeds. Just about all of the paper pots we need have been made in two days! Thank you Lehman's for a great "green" product."

"Love it and have so much fun making my pots. I have used the pre-formed ones at the store and they do not break down at all. This will be a hoot for us this year. Thanks "

"It is excellent wood and arrived in perfect condition. I tried making a few pots and really liked them. I think I will probably use them for my tomatoes this year and see how they do. I haven't filled them with dirt yet so I don't know how they will hold up to soaking from below."

"This is a great product. I made 40 pots in about 20 minutes. The only problem I had was getting the bottom to fold down flat, but that was easily solved by just pushing the bottom part against the top a little harder."

"The idea of the potmaker is excellent, but the execution could use some refining. Perhaps some handles at the top (I had to create a set of string handle at the top/neck) to pull the plug part out of the wrapped paper, without wrecking the paper pot. Also, the bottom section supposedly used to seal or otherwise close the bottom of the paper pot just tamps it down a bit. I had to insert an extra piece of paper to close the bottom of the pot definitively. And I also used a staple up at the top edge to hold the pot together. Other than that... it works fine. If there were good instructions that showed a way around these deficiencies in the design, perhaps it would be good to include with the potmaker."

"I absolutely love this. I started making my pots and soon as I got it. Easy and fun to use. My seeds are growing so well and I just wish the weather would cooperate so I can start transplanting. They are more than ready to put in the ground. Getting a head start on growing seeds was something I was extremely excited about doing. "
