Rated 5 out of 5 by Florida Dave All it says it is and a great price
First off let me say that the battery complainers need to read the instructions. I did and it started up right away and still works fine. Then there are the tube complainers. The tube is a rubbery material that if you put a pencil in each end(not all the way in) and leave it in a warm sunny spot the folds will relax out of it. The only additional purchase you'll need to make, if you don't have one already, is a long neck propane lighter. The stand for the Deni is sturdy enough to hold the unit without you having to hold it.
Overall, I got more than I thought I was getting. The unit is of a higher quality than expected and I'm quite pleased with my purchase. I stretched mine out over 4 payments only because of Xmas expenses.
Who would this be a perfect gift for? I said Dads below but Moms could get some good use out of this as well for smoked cheese, etc. Yes, women can smoke too!

I TRIED THIS ON A WHOLE CHICKEN. I LET IT SMOKE 3 TIMES, THEN LET I LET SMOKE INTO THE CAVITY. PUT BACK CHICKEN INTO THE FRIDGE OVERNIGHT TOOK IT OUT OF CONTAINER AND USED MY AIR FRIER.
IT WAS THE BEST SMOKED CHICKEN, IVE HAD IN YEARS. NEXT VENTURE, THE TURKEY. YUMMMMM.

Followed all the directions, and it didn't work. So disappointed.
Rated 2 out of 5 by orange blossom needs improvements
This little machine would be a quick fix for some smoke favor if they would do a few improvements. Like a different hose, I just laughed at that kinked up mess. Something heavier and shorter. And if you were going to send a hose like that why would you fold it so tight. Maybe bags or container to connect the replacement hose to. The batteries went in just fine, but the machine was a little hard to get started, and then again that hose. I sent mine back the same day.
Rated 1 out of 5 by DonLR Won't turn on!
After placing the batteries in the compartment the way the diagram shows, mine would not turn on. I tried different configurations just in case, and used fresh batteries, and still nothing. I think it odd that in the battery compartment it has four springs at the bottom, since only two positives, and two negatives face downward. Is this what everyone else's has? I might return for an exchange and give it one more try. I was really looking forward to trying this.

I ordered the Deni Hand Held Food Smoker with 2 oz. Smoking Chips in July 2015 I was and am very pleased with it my favorite is smoking cream cheese and hard-boiled eggs but I have smoked several other things about 8 to 12 times over a 8 month period I purchased more cream cheese and batteries (just to be safe) luckily I tried the smoker before I opened the cream cheese to find out that it was dead not a click a buzz nothing, I tried to find contact information with no luck so I called QVC and no question asked they sent me a return address label and they sent me a brand new one no charge for shipping and handling both ways or smoker I am very pleased with the smoker and QVC
