I liked my glass one, but I'm not careful enough to be trusted with breakables

Good basic thief
I use this all the time. Works fine, wish it would drip a bit less. Often use it for filling that single bottle now and then from a barrel .

I really tried to like this. Easy to clean and I like how it breaks down. Its very messy to use

Went in the garbage after first attempt to use
This one came with a beer kit. It's too short to ft well into the carboy and so in will only exact an ounce or two. On top of that the three piece design compromised the air lock and so it leaks. It's not worth the frustration.

Convenience outweighs performance
The three pieces don't provide an airtight seal for optimal sample taking, but they do make for easy cleaning and sanitizing. For a piece that is not used with great regularity, I'll overlook slight flaws in performance for the convenience.

Works great for a while
Works good for a year or two, but it is a softer plastic and will wear over time.

Easy to clean and sanitize, but needs to be replaced every so often.

Easy to sanitize
Being in 3 pieces makes it easy to sanitize. I love that!

doesnt hold sample well
Pros- breaks down into 3 parts and is very easy to clean.

Cons- does not hold sample well. It barely fills up to the first 1/3 of the wine thief, and then dribbles out as you're trying to fill your hydrometer. I think something about the 3 part construction keeps it from being airtight and holding a sample. Get yourself a 1 piece construction thief and you'll be a lot happier.

ehhh
Doesnt hold to well, the 3 piece design is easy to clean though

Great tool
This is exactly what it says it is and works well. Mine does leak a little bit, even with a heavy thumb on the top hole, but we are talking small dribbles. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to keep their fermentation sanitary while monitoring the progress.
