"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!"

"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."

"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."

"Saturday I used my pot maker for the first time and made about 75 pots. Ever 3 or 4 pots one would stick and be really hard to get to come off of the pot maker. Turns out the finish on the 'barrel' was pretty rough and even had a piece of lint or something stuck in it. A few minutes with some 800 grit sandpaper followed by a couple of drops of ArmorAll took care of the problem and now it works just like it should have worked right out of the box. I used the paper that my order was packed in to make the pots since I no longer take a newspaper. The pot maker works fine now but I rate it as a 4 because I had to correct the poor finish. Regards, Jerry"
