Rated 1 out of 5 by Nana0901 Worst Sponge Ever
I watched the presentation many times before deciding to spend this kind of money on a sponge. So, with high hopes I got one and within 3 weeks it literally disintegrated. Not one single time did it get hard enough to scrub a difficult-to-clean pan or surface. I will stick with my $2 Dobie or microfiber cloths; last WAY longer and do a much better job (IMO).

Not what it's claimed to be.
When soft, does not act like a sponge and pick up liquid it merely moves it around, not absorbent. at all.
When hard, really doesn't scrub well.
I guess let logic prevail. When I think of it, how is it supposed to have the abrasiveness to scrub baked on anything but not enough to scratch surfaces.
They do have a really good presentation but the product sucks.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bascia Questionable manufacturing
When these first came out they lasted quite a while before breaking down. Now they break down after two weeks. Value has changed.
Also, they used to get hard as a rock, now they do not get that way. Something has changed and the price is the same. Something is wrong with this product. Go back to the original formula in making them.
As far as giving them as a gift this Christmas, I am debating because they do not last as long and something is different in them since the beginning when they came out as a product on QVC.
Rated 2 out of 5 by rwfan Not the same ?
I must agree with some of the comments. There may be are a manufacturing issue.? They seem to fall apart quicker than when I first purchased them? Colors are pretty..
Go back to the way they were, look into it Scrub Daddy...& Lori G.

Haven't had any problems with these. I don't wash my dishes with these. Only use them to clean the sink, back splash, and only stuck on food. On my last one from last December. Haven't had one fall apart yet. I just toss when I no longer think they are working properly.
Rated 1 out of 5 by numbersjim Not the same as on TV
When I saw these on TV I was intrigued by how firm they get in cold water. About a year ago I bought one at retail and it worked great. Then QVC (April 2016) had the Big Daddy (3 x 5 square blocks) presentation. I ordered them because I would able to cut them into smaller blocks so it would be more economical.
However, the product has changed! They never get firm enough to scrub anything. I now store my currently used one in the freezer to prevent it from stinking, because it absorbs moisture and odors. When I take it out to use, it gets soft as soon as it gets wet even with cold water.
They breakdown quickly and do not clean well unless I use a lot of liquid detergent and a ton of elbow grease. A real disappointment for the cost!

Rated 4 out of 5 by inevitable Very Good But...
I really like this sponge! I gave a set to my grandmother and we both agree on one thing even though we like the sponge very much...it lasts no more than a month. I assumed that maybe it was me because i'm constantly washing dishes but then she told me the same thing. Her's started to fall apart after a month. I gave it 4 stars because of that otherwise they are good,they never stink, easy to rinse of anything that gets stuck onto the sponge and whether in cold or hot water they get everything off my pots and pans! Wish they'd last longer though.
