My parents bought these as a gift. After the fourth time of enjoying them, the red light stopped working. Now I'm told I have to take them back to the store because it must be a defective one.
I recommended this to a friend before it stopped working. My friend went and bought one, and I had her get me another one as well. I'm sorry that I ever got one, and I will never recommend this to anybody.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
