Review Ratevery, very poorly designed.
This is worst hummingbird feeder that Perky-Pet has ever put on the market, along with the plastic version! An outright rip-off! When the wind blows even a little, the feeder sways and spills out it's contents to the ground. If you can't design something better than that, get out of the business! Just threw out my plastic version from last year. Taking the glass version back to Canadian Tire this weekend, after just purchasing it a week ago. Note: Even your expensive glass/brass/bronze ones do not hold their fluid! Hire an engineer or even a talented high school student!Response From Safer Brand®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to share this feedback and apologize for this experience.
When the bottle is tightly secured to the base, this feeder should not leak. However, if placed in a windy location, some nectar may leak out when tilted. For best results, we recommend placing feeders in sheltered locations. Hummingbirds prefer feeding in calm environments and this will also help prevent leaking.
Please keep in mind that our feeders are covered by a 30 day return policy as well as a one year warranty. Our Consumer Relations Team can be reached at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) and is happy to provide additional assistance.
Review RateThis model feeds Orioles - be sure to weigh it down prevent spills
I was going to buy this one again but it's out of stock - hope it isn't discontinued! I like the 'feeding pipes' design because i can take the beeguard off (I just spray bees with a quirt of water and they're gone) so the Orioles can drink. The designs with built-in hole covers are too small, the orioles gave up. PS a solution for wind and Orioles who hang on the sides and tip - just hang a flowerpot/basket underneath - use 3 or 4 nylon strings to attach from the hook to equidistant spots on the basket and I even have a plastic container of water with a half lid of jelly. Everybody's happy. When I got a good birdbath, I replaced the water with some rocks to weigh the basket down.
Review RateTerrible Leak
I have bought Perky-Pet brand before with no problems. However, the Pinch Waist with the easy to clean base LEAKS. As many others have stated on this site. Previous models have had an inner gasket (if you will), this one with the wide mouth does not. Don't tell me to fill, tighten and not hang in a breeze (I'm over 50 and have been feeding the hummingbirds for years without any issues)! Never had this problem before. Very disappointed.Response From Safer Brand®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RatePinch waist bottle feeder
I like this style of feeder because it does not require so much nector for each one therefore I keep several around the house and the new bottles have a wider mouth and are easier to fill. Also the hanger cap with the reservoir top help to keep the ants out and I do not have to use a separate ant trap. I replaced several of my od feeders due to sun deterioration this year. FYI - Orioles would nt come to the oriole feeder but they do come to the hummingbird feeder so I have done away with thatoe.
Review RateWOW!!!!!!! THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED!!!!!!!
This is one of the best feeder out there! It is beautiful and sturdy.If you want a good hummingbird feeder, get this one.
Review RateThe birds voted this as their favorite ! ! !
This feeder continues to be the birds favorite. The birds use this feeder all through the day and love to challenge the bees, whom are not very lucky at this feeder.
Review RateDon't buy this
I purchased two of these from a local store. At first, I thought I would love them because it would be easy to clean the bottle. This part is true but, they leak so badly that I found out that I had to refill them constantly. I took them down and resumed using the older style. I bought a replacement part for the older style but of the parts cracked and I don't see that it is still available. Don't buy this model because you will be pouring money down the tube, so to speak.Response From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.
When the bottle is tightly secured to the base, and the feeder is turned upright quickly to create a vacuum, it should not leak. Our feeders are covered by a one year replacement warranty.

These feeders are much easier to fill. The little hummers came right away and had a meal. Thank you for changing the design. Much appreciate the new look & ease. Marilou R.
Review RateNot happy with these feeders
I purchased two of these feeders. They leak so badly that the nectar needs refilling daily...if anyone has any ideas as to how to stop the leaking please let me know. The nectar pours out of the flowers. My old feeders has a very small mouth and they never leaked, these have a very wide mouth and I wonder if this may be the problem.Response From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateEasy to clean!
So easy to clean! The bee guards work great for the bees but my orioles and finches have figured out how to get them off as they are not 'snug' so I usually have to search for one in the grass or planter. I have 4 feeders--2 new design and 2 old skinny neck--located all around my back yard. I try to spread them out so there will be no territory fighting and chasing, but still it goes on with two different types not willing to share. I make my own nectar, but the sample that came with my latest purchase seemed to attract the hummers the best!
