I bought it at my local Rite Aid closing sale. It cost $10.00. It cools well for about two days and then it needs to be cleaned. I have seen the very same unit selling for $39.99 at Walgreens. It lists for as high as $89.99 online, lol. I have no complaints because I paid only $10.00 for the darn thing, but it leaks so bad that I had to put it in a large Corning Ware Bowl to catch the water. Another example of fine Chinese craftsmanship. I don't care because we'll be at war with those slant eyes within a decade anyway.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
