4.0 out of 5 stars Our hummingbirds love this one 12 Sep 2007
By Steven Quigley - Published on Amazon.com
This is a small hummingbird feeder that would be great for those just trying their hand at attracting hummingbirds. It's inexpensive and easy to maintain, but most of all, the hummers love it! My wife and I have three hummingbird feeders: this one, a Schrodt - Crystal Single Etched Hummingbird Lantern, and another model with 6 tulip-shaped feeder holes. Though it's not one of the prettier feeders, the Best-1 is the one we paid the least for and it's the feeder they seem to prefer. There are no yellow flowers to attract yellow jackets, and they really seem to like to perch more on this one. Since it's a glass bottle design, you'll need a bottle brush to clean it well inside, but the lid pops off of the red base to make that part very easy to clean.

Older models of this feeder did not have the built-in ant moat (depressed ring around lid of base), so if you buy one locally, make sure it has that feature. With a small feeder like this one, you'll be filling it often enough anyway, so pouring a little water in that ring every few days is all it takes to keep the ants away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and Effective 19 May 2009
By Scottsoyingo - Published on Amazon.com

Out of all the feeders we've had, we've had the most success with this one, in that the birds prefer this one over the others. As another reviewer noted, no yellow parts to attract bees. The 8 oz size of the bottle is perfect, because it's a nice balance between having to fill it up too frequently with nectar and having the nectar sit there too long to spoil.

I also like that the upside down bottle ensures that gravity will keep the feeder part full. And I like with just a glance, you can look at the bottle and tell h how low the feeder is.

Cleaning is easy enough as the bottle twists off easily leaving you the bottle and two other pieces of plastic to clean. A little brush and hot water, then refill. Every so often (when you start to see schmutz building up), soak all the pieces in a small mix of bleach and water and let it soak for 30 minutes and you're done.

There are 8 feeding holes (not entirely sure b/c feeder not in front of me) for the birds which is more than fine (I've only had 4 birds feeding at one time, which is actually a lot given hummingbird behavior). However, you should be aware that the hummingbirds will eventually come to this feeder and mainly perch while feeding (as opposed to hovering while they feed).

There's no ant moat per se, but you can apply mineral or castor oil to a cotton swab and dab it on the provided hanging wire, and I've found this works well for dealing with ants. Even better is to get an ant moat and fill it with mineral oil (or castor oil), and it won't evaporate so you can fill it and forget it. (I prefer the "Detourant Ant Guard" as it's not effected by rain and regular birds won't try to inadvertently drink the oil).

And replacement parts are easy to find online, though I've just order whole new ones in the past.

And for you novices, you can easily make your own nectar using 1 part sugar to 4 parts water, boil it for about a minute, and refrigerate for storage. Let it cool before serving of course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humdinger of a bird feeder 17 Jan 2009
By Barry - Published on Amazon.com
These are the very best hummingbird feeder I have ever seen and I've tried quite a few. They pretty well keep bees and bugs out. The birds love them too. I have six of them in my yard all winter in Seattle and have hummingbirds all year.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Time-Tested Reliable Feeder 6 Jun 2011
By ladyfingers - Published on Amazon.com
I buy hummingbird feeders locally whenever there are end of season sales. Six or seven hang out in our very large yard at any given time; we've gone through many different styles and brands. Best-1 hummingbird feeders have held up the longest (7+ years) and seem to be the hummingbirds' favorite. As a matter of fact, the only time one failed is when a raccoon tried to drink out of one, the feeder fell, and the glass bottle broke. With any other, you'd have to throw the whole thing away. No problem here--replacement parts are made and sold.
These feeders can be found elsewhere at cheaper prices, and replacements for either the glass top or plastic bottom can be bought separately. Look up Nottawa Wild Bird Supply (can be found online) in Indiana. They sell this 8 oz. feeder for $8, the base replacement for $5, or the 8 oz. glass top for $3. I stop in whenever I'm in the area--it's a birder's paradise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Feeder for Hummingbirds 6 May 2011
By C. Clarke - Published on Amazon.com

This is about my 5th feeder. This is the only one I'll buy. I replace them when someone accidentally breaks the glass container or the little pieces on the stand.

My hummingbirds love it! They'll sit on the perch for several minutes at a time. They look at it so lovingly!!! They even fight over it!

The product was just as described. It was well packaged and shipped quickly. Please consider this seller. I'll use them again!
