5.0 out of 5 stars | Absolutely love my new smoker
Your browser does not support HTML5 video. Absolutely love my new smoker. It shipped very quickly and after it shipped, I got an email from the company thanking me for my purchase and telling me a little bit about their business which was nice. I love the look of it and the aluminum gives it a very study feel. It fits well with the modern look of my other kitchen gadgets. All I had to do once I got it was install a few double a batteries and hook up the hose. As soon as I turned on the fan and lit the wood chips, it started billowing out smoke immediately and it was very quiet. After I was done smoking my pork chops, I let it sit for awhile and out the smoker back in the bag and into a cupboard. I would highly recommend this device. The personalized touch from the company was very appreciated.

4.0 out of 5 stars | Be careful with battery installation.
Edit. I wrote a 1 star review because of the incorrect battery instructions. After requesting a return,the company sent me a replacement and a refund for the hassle. The new device works well. Be careful when installing the batteries though and ignore the instructions. Negative sides touch all 4 of the springs as you would expect. The instructions caused confusion. The customer service was great though and overall I'm happy. Original review. If you install the batterys the way the instructions show, it shorts them out and causes the contacts to overheat. This device is dangerous. I will be returning mine after burning my hand on the battery cover with the device off.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Pretty useful little thing
I mainly bought this little smoker for smoking whiskey and making a smoked Old Fashioned. I ended up trying it out on some meats and really fell in love with it. I got some mesquite wood chips, put some raw steaks in a container and pumped in some smoke and let it sit for 20 minutes so it would absorb into the fibers of the meat before seasoning. I cooked it in the oven but it tasted like it was grilled over an open fire.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Best Cocktail Smoker
This product, by far, is one of my best purchases made this year. I’m hugely into bourbon and rye, and having this opened a door to a whole new experience. Ease of use: The smoker was VERY easy to assemble, using basic common sense, and without even reading the directions (please read directions though before using, otherwise the product may become damaged if it’s ran for too long). 5/5 Value: For what it’s worth, this product is over $100 less than the larger smoker guns, and provides amazing results and finishes on your cocktails. 5/5 without a doubt! Durability: This one is tricky, so I gave it a 4/5. The housing is metal and seems very durable, but I can’t tell the durability of the internal components because it’s only designed to be run for less than 60seconds. So it lost a star for having a cap on run time, HOWEVER, for being a portable/travel smoker, this is perfect. I’m the only drinker in my house, and smoking one cocktail at a time is all I need. So this gets a 4.9/5. All in all, this product is perfect for my needs, and 100% satisfied with it! I HIGHLY recommend getting this first (based on your personal usage) before buying the larger ones. Great job Gramercy!

5.0 out of 5 stars | Superb Customer Service
I received one of these last year as a gift from my wife. I love to cook, and I love finding creative products to make my Kitchen efforts memorable. This sure did the trick. It works great, is simple to use and can turn an everyday appetizer plate into a magnificent memorable occasion. BUT..... What these folks also truly understand is the Art of Exceptional Customer Service. My unit died and I put it in a kitchen drawer and forgot about until the other night... I sent them an email regarding the possibility of a replacement.... to the point, 2 emails later I was informed the unit was on the way and will be in a few days. No returning the dead one, nothing. Just plain straight forward excellent Customer Service. My advice, but one of these, they're great but so are their other products. Thank you, Gramercy Kitchens.

4.0 out of 5 stars | Better than I could imagine and used far more than expected.
This has been an essential piece in my making of drinks and adding flavor to my propane made meals during the summer time. Originally I purchased to provide a smokiness to my mix drinks but I have thus taken it to the grill. I love a true flavor wood pellets and provide to a meal and this portable and hand held device has done just that. I can honestly say I have used it over 20 times and it is still producing it’s described job. I have however had a time or two that I had to “tap” it to get it to start working but I think those were times I neglected to clean it properly. There are quite a few hand held smokers out there and the prices vary for all of them. This was a perfect price for me to rest try smoking things and has transformed into an essential tool in my cooking and mixology. I am glad I went with this particular one vs competition even if it was due to an affordable price. I was not going to spend the money on an expensive toy just to not like it or not put it to use for the amount of money spent. This provided a good and affordable price for an excellent return on taste.

1.0 out of 5 stars | Dies easily
This is my second one that has broken (stopped working) just beyond a month of purchase date. I'm very disappointed, as it was great for the (very) short lifespan... I might have gotten 5 uses out of it. For a quick gimmick, this might be worth it, but if you are actually wanting to put in some time smoking different things, don't bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Priced great; super easy to use; smokes like a pro; compact and convenient
Just got my awesome little smoker! It was super easy to use...just popped 4 AA batteries in...added a little scoop of applewood shavings...lit it, and wow! The cold smoke immediately poured out of the tube as I filled the dome of a glass bowl, covering 4 nice tenderloins. I let them sit for 1/2 hour before grilling, and enjoyed a great smoked flavor, with this handy tool. I would take this camping, over to friends...any time I want that smoked goodness. Its a snap, with its own black bag.
