Have used it for years with absolutely no issues. Much better than the last one I had, and easy to take apart and clean. Why put your hydrometer in your finished beer when you can draw a sample into the test jar!

It works and easy to clean
Not much to review here. It holds liquid, doesn't leak and is easy to clean. Perfect for testing specific gravity using a hydrometer.

Excellent and inexpensive
I have used mine for several years without any problems. At least 20 batches, probably more. Easy to clean, no leaks, and durable.

NO problems in 4 years
I've been using the same one since I started brewing 4 years ago. I always take care not to drop it from a very high distance into the testing container. Dropping them too hard can cause the glass to break, but if you're careful, no problems.

Works Great for Me
Maybe there is a quality control problem with these jars. Mine works just like advertized. No leaks and no cracks after two months use.Mine is a clear plastic tube glued onto a cream colored plastic threaded part that screws into the silver plastic base. Looks simple and easy to fix if necessary.Maybe the high alcohol content attacked one of the plastics.Mine was made by Ace Plastics, Vancover, B.C.

No problems
This does double duty, first you measure OG/FG then you get a taste. Mine is put together well and have had no problems.

Works great as expected. The removable base makes it easier to store in my brew drawer.

Works great
I use this test jar for all my SG measurements, so far it's worked great for me. Very easy to clean and has never leaked in 50+ uses. Not the most resilient thing in the world (I cracked the top of mine a little), but very nice to have.

Is the clear part open on both ends and has to be screwed in to the base to hold the sample or is it sealed on one end (glued or formed)? and it just screws to the base to hold it? For those who say it leaked, where exactly does it leak from?

This test jar is open on both ends until you screw it into the base. I would think the leaking issue some are reporting is from not screwing it together tightly enough.
