Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jane Very disappointing product
I have used Jasco stripper for years & felt confident about buying it again; however when I opened the can, the product came out in gelatinous globs which could not be broken up nor could be spread. I attempted to contact their "help line" by both phone & e-mail and got no response. So much for their customer service that their web page touts!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JTMoney Good stuff!
I used it for removing powder coat paint from aluminum. Worked pretty good. Could of the colors needed a second coat. Just let it set for a bit and scrape It off. I did it over a big chunk of cardboard no mess. My gloves got ruined by this stuff. It's super powerful. I've had a hard time finding gloves it won't get through...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LPY Depends on what you're stripping
I was trying to get just a couple layers of paint off a rocking chair. Worked ok on flat areas, like the seat. But on the rounded spindles it just turned the paint into a big pasty mess that cannot be removed with a scraper. I've tried steel wool, which is getting to be a very extensive option, wire brush, which clogs and I can't get the goo out with mineral spirits or soap and water. Oh, and the stripper seems to have dried somewhat in the can. It's not a paste, more like gelatinous putty. Time to try a different brand )-:

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John very good product
This is definitely a paint stripper. I used this to remove the stain from my cabinet doors. The stain started to come off within 30 seconds. I was amazed how well it works. The only thing is you have to use several coats to get to the bare wood. But is well worth the time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by meghabyte Doesn't work well at all
I used the Orange paint stripper before and thought I'd see if this worked better. It partially worked, but I still had to do a lot of sanding to get the remaining paint off. It seemed to get absorbed by the paint very quickly, even if I put a thick layer on the paint. It was a very labor intensive process. On the same piece of furniture, I decided to go back to using the orange stuff and it worked so much better. The orange stuff didn't dry as fast and went through all layers of paint and easily peeled off using a plastic scraper. I had to leave this Premium Remover on for 30 minutes and it did half the job! I'm never buying this stuff again and going back to the orange stuff...plus it's safer to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tmtexas Great for removing RESTORE finish
I was trying to remove my RESTORE finish from my deck. Sanding alone was too much work, I tried a number of strippers but found this one to work very well. Only had to wait about 5 minutes before scraping.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by f8 Nasty stuff
(1) Removing the safety cap was a challenge - I used vice grips.
(2) Nasty odor, even with cross ventilation - chemical respirator useful.
(3) Not effective at removing oil based paint.
(4) Customer service = voicemail with no return call.
I applied half a quart of the product to 9 sq. ft. of a door that had one layer of oil based top coat over primer. The coverage was based on data from the jasco-help web site. After 15 mins, and even longer, the top coat was still very difficult to scrape. After cleanup, I tried a wire brush followed by a second application, with little improvement. I was expecting this product to be more aggressive than the orange biodegradable paint stripper I normally use, but it was not. If the biodegradable product doesn't work, I would skip this one and use a heat gun or a sander.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SDSUZI This stuff works really well!!!!
We have 60-year-old Philippine Mahogany kitchen cabinets with original stain (dark) and varnish. Since the wood is great quality, we wanted to see if we could strip the goopy old stain and varnish (yuk!) off and re-stain 'em.
At the recommendation of the Home Depot staff member I purchased this product and let me tell you...WOW it was amazing!
Yes, the cans are hard to open as one reviewer mentioned, but not impossible. You just have to push down and turn while grabbing very firmly.
As for the other low reviews, the only reason I can think of is that people left it on for WAY too long. You can't let it dry out otherwise it won't work. One coat applied for 5-15 minutes (apply and leave it alone...don't mess with it or re-brush over it) was all I needed to strip off the sealant and most of the stain, and following the stripping procedure with a light sanding, my cabinets look incredible! I can't wait to finish them all.
This product works great on vertical surfaces, cleans up with water, and has no foul odor. I love it and will definitely use it again.
