I have used these feeders for several years. They are easy to clean and the hummingbirds seem to enjoy them. I really like the smaller size.
Great Product...HUMMERS LOVE IT!
I've been using hummingbird feeders for decades and the Best-1 8 Ounce Clear Glass hummingbird feeder is the best feeder I've ever used. The reasons it's superior to others: (1.) It's easy to clean. You can reach every square inch of the feeder and there aren't any unnecessary decorations that need to be cleaned which so many other feeders have. I use a bottle brush which makes cleaning even easier--it takes less than two minutes. (2.) The bottle is real glass and it's thick. It won't ever crack or discolor or leak toxins into the nectar. (3.) The feeding base is thick red plastic (styrene) and seems to be indestructible. It's only in two parts and there's no assembly required. (4.) The design is genius. It's made so that other birds and insects can't use it. (5.) There's a perch all the way around it for the hummers to use while eating, thus conserving their energy. (6.) The hook is attached to the feeder and it works perfectly. (7.) It's a nice looking feeder. I can't imagine a feeder design being more perfect in every way. After I first put it out, hummers spotted it and started using it within 20 minutes and they've been using it off and on all day long ever since!
Our hummingbirds love it. It is SO easy to use clean and we now have three identical feeders in place around our home.
This bottle feeder is the best we have ever used for a hummingbird! They can reach the holes and perch more comfortably, and the care and cleaning is so much easier, too. If you are ever visited by an off-course hummingbird, as we were in late November until late January, a woollen sock over the bottle (and a heat lamp above) helps to keep the sugar water from freezing.
I love this feeder. I had the blossom style previously and they leaked nectar and I had a problem with bees and ants. I do not have any of those problems with the Best-1. When I first hung it, the hummers did not seem to know how to use it but they quickly figured it out and now they just come there to rest sometimes.
Love it! My back yard is full of hummingbirds and I'm enjoying them. Clean up is really easy with this product. I bought two of them and threw the rest in the trash!
Excellent service. Fast delivery, well-wrapped. I look forwad to using them more.
This is a wonderful feeder!! Our hummingbirds have followed us from our previous building next door. The Best-1 nectar is great too. They love it and no red dye in it. I hand-raised a hummingbird my daughter found on the ground using the nectar among other things... released him after about 6 weeks! Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone, it's easy and they love it.
Thes hummingbird feeders are by far the best out there. The glass bottle and the resin bottom part seem to help prevent the mold, or whatever that scuzzy stuff is that forms on the feeders especially in the hot and humid weather so it doesn't start forming near as quickly as in other plastic ones. I have used them for years as has my Mom. Wouldn't use anything else. Just bought one for my daughter who just moved into a house and had a place to put one. She loves it!
These are the best feeders you can buy! Easy to clean! And when you go on vacation you can screw a two liter coke bottle on them!!
I've gone through many hummingbird feeders over the years, and this one is by far the best. My recent purchase was to replace the exact item. The hanger had rusted after several years use so I decided to replace now so I'm ready for next season. It's a no-nonsense feeder, easy to clean--I highly recommend it!
The size is perfect and I have used several feeders from different companies in the past and I really must say this is the one for me.
I have used a number of different hummingbird feeders over the years. I purchased one of these feeders a few years ago while on vacation. I wanted to purchase another one because I have found it to be the BEST one I have ever used. Found it on line at Backyard Chirper- it is also very easy to clean.
Great hummingbird feeder. Easy to clean and fill, bought two for freinds also!
These are the very best hummingbird feeders we have ever had and we have used them for a few years. They are easy to clean and do not have the bee guards that always get moldy. The hummingbirds love them because they are easy for them to hold on to while they are feeding.
This was my first time dealing with this company but you can believe I will be back.The small size of this feeder is just what I was looking for very little waste. Shipping was very fast and packed very well.
I love this type of hummingbird feeder. I have been using them for years. I would recommend them to anyone who feeds hummingbirds.
I was somewhat surprised that as soon as we put the feeder out, the hummingbirds started using it. Sort of like, "build it and they will come" from Field of Dreams.
This is the best hummingbird feeder I've ever seen, for two reasons. One is that it is very easy to clean, and the second reason is that it gives the hummers a place to rest while they eat. I ordered some to give for gifts.
Best feeder ever!! Have five of them.
This is the best hummer feeder I've found....It's large enough to hold food for a few days, then small enough that it's not a pain to clean frequently so food is kept fresh and delicious for my hummingbirds! This style feeder is easier to clean than those with the yellow plastic flowers that can fall off and get lost.
I have owned a number of hummingbird feeders. This is the best. It is easy to see the level of liquid in the bottle, it is easy to clean, and the cup keeps ants from getting to the nectar.
Best feeder I've ever found. It doesn't leak like some others and the hummers love it!
Best hummingbird feeder I have ever had. It does not drip or leak like other designs do.
Our humming birds LOVE this feeder because it has a perch! There will be five at a time enjoying their homemade nectar - we love it!
This is the best hummingbird feeder. It holds enough to feed them and doesn't spoil. I like it so much I have two and adding. One really isn't enough they are so territorial. The base is really solid construction and the glass bottle is great. It cleans so easily. The person that recommended it to me has 3 of the 32oz feeders. I've given these as gifts for people that are home bound and they love to watch all the birds.
This is a great hummingbird feeder! The hummers love it and perch on it to eat all the time. I now own 4 of them. It is also easy to clean and there are no spare parts for critters to break off and replace. Only problem is, they were hard to find in a store, until I Googled the name, and had to order over the web.
We purchased the first of this type of feeder in Tulsa. After the store closed we looked for the item on line. That is how much we like the product.
It is as good as the 32 oz. Good for those slow times at the feeder.
This is a really good design. It is the easiest feeder to clean that I have ever encountered! I know ALL hummingbird feeders have packaging or whatever that says they are easy to clean, but usually that it a big lie. In this case it's actually true. The base comes apart effortlessly for cleaning and none of that deal where you have to somehow pry apart the pieces. This has none of the problems of other feeders I have tried regarding the accidental trapping and drowning of little native bees. I like bees, too, and have every wish to avoid killing them. And the perches get a thumbs up in my book on a safety issue - I actually saw a photo once of a hummingbird that had become wedged and died in between a circular perch and the base, but this perch has several concentric circles so there is NO WAY a hummer could get wedged in there. I like knowing I can order bigger glass bottles and not entirely new feeders if the hummers around here start drinking more. This doesn't have little green or yellow fake plastic "flowers" around the drinking holes, but guess what - hummingbird research shows that hummingbirds don't give a flip about those little plastic fake flowers - it's just one more thing not to have to clean around.
I hate raccoons!!!
I have used this feeder for years. It is easy to load, clean and keeps bee's at bay!
This is second best to the 32 oz model!
This is the best feeder I have ever used!
This is a very nice feeder. It comes apart easily for cleaning, and the perch gives the birds a chance to perch and feed, which means we can see them longer. I really like it!
Great feeder; it does not leak like other designs.
Love this feeder. Simple to use, easy to clean, and the glass never clouds like plastic. I've used this brand for 3 years and will not use anything else. The hummingbirds also seem to like it over the others I have out. I can also use bleach to clean and sanitize, unlike plastic which seems to retain the bleach odor and never rinse clean.
I have three! They are the best!
Great product! Lasts well in our hot summer climate and the hummers love it.
It is a cute feeder. The hummingbirds are loving it!
It is a really great product and great service.
I have had two for 4 years and they are still like new. Hummers love them.
It is a nice hummingbird.
It is easy to use, affordable and the birds adore it!
It is just perfect!
Great product! Perfectly designed because you have the choice of either filling some or all of the bottle.
I don't waste as much with this feeder as it takes less and I can see if it is being used.
Our hummers immediately fed from this feeder.
This is my second hummingbird feeder. It is easy to handle and keep clean.
Arrived safely New Zealand small nectar birds are using it. Do you have a model with slightly larger perching area? We have a bird - Tui - that is larger and can not land on the perching ring
We live in an area of the World where hummingbirds abound and we have been looking for feeders that have a perch as an integral part of the feeder. One can see the beauty of the various colorations of these lovely birds only when they are at rest so the perch becomes very important. The feeder we purchased serves that need extremely well. I would have preferred a perching area with a greater surface diameter in as much as hummingbirds are quite territorial and do not like to share space with other species of Colibri. We should have ordered 4 feeders instead of the 2 we ordered since we have both hanging to avoid the constant dispute over who will be allowed to drink from each feeder.
Although I like the design of this feeder better than any other, I'm noting that the quality of the item is not as strong as it once was. The metal holder seems different.
This is exactly what I wanted except I ordered the one that is too small. Am using them, however.
This product is too small. We end up refilling the bottle in less than a week When you fill the bottle, attach the bottom part and turn it over to fill the reservoir, the bottle is 1/3 empty. Get a bigger one.
We are extremely disappointed with this item. We have been feeding hummingbirds for the past 15 yrs, and this is the first time, we have had horrible ant issues with our feeders. This item is not at all what it makes itself out to be. It can get full of ants and none of our hummingbirds are interested in this feeder, at all. What a waste of our money, and I would never recommend buying anything from this company too.
