Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Item wasn't new. Poor quality.
First thing I noticed upon receiving the jerky gun was that the box had been taped closed as if it was a previous return item. When I opened it, the packaging inside seemed to confirm that also. The accessory tips were wrapped in brown paper. The spice packets were yellowed with age and the contents of the packets were hard and brittle as if they had been sitting on a shelf for a long time. It had the feel of something I would expect to have gotten at a garage sale. I wound up calling Presto about the spice packets and they did send me replacements. The jerky gun itself is not a quality construction. The end caps that screw onto the tube to hold the extrusion tips do not turn easily, especially during tightening and loosening. The plastic caps and plastic tube material are high friction against each other like cheap plastic. The plunger does not fit tightly enough against the sides of the tube so some jerky mix squeezes past the plunger toward the back of the tube when extruding jerky mix out of the tips. The only positive thing I can say about this product is that I was able to extrude jerky strips from the tip. So in that sense, it works, but I would almost rather use wax paper and roll out my ground beef jerky mix. It would be easier and with less cleanup. Don't buy this product.
