We just received ours. Took 3 weeks...and arrives rather poorly packaged from the Ukraine. Tammy (moderator on this board) has a great link for a video on using this particular separator. It works beautifully..and is far cheaper than most other models on the market. We bought the manual model rather than the electric one. I'd suggest what we bought. Works just fine and no electrical parts to replave.

I have the manual one. It works well no problems. I have never used another cream separator so don't have any thing to compare it to. It does need to be secured down very well. If you don't want to permanently secure it to a table. I just bolted it to a board and clamp the board down to my counter with 2 c clamps when I want to use it.
