Worked perfectly for my bathroom tile
Worked perfectly for my bathroom tile

Never dried! Nightmare!
I bought this thinset for my 12x12 ceramic floor tiles, applied as instructed. On the second day I noticed the tiles would still flex and lifting them, I found the mortar was still wet. I placed a fan and dehumidifier on the hallway where the tiles were set. They were placed on wonderboard which sat on wood subfloor. After a full week, the premix did not set, was still as wet as the day I put it down! I had to strip it all off and go with normal mortar. This was a waste of two weekends and over 100 dollars! I'll be calling the manufacturer to try and get a refund. I'm never buying this junk again! Note that in the photo we used the grey premix mortar and the when that ran out we switched to the white. Both did not cure at all!

Worked Great For Me
Im not sure what exactly all the complaints are about, I used 1.5 buckets of these 3 1/2 gallon premixed thin-set to build a 4x15 ft ledger stone wall in my den rennovation. It couldnt have been any easier and my wall is rock solid (no pun intended. I removed drywall and added cement backerboard, and the whole thing was a breeze. Only complaint is that it is pricey compared to the powder thin-set/mortar, but if you dont want to have to mess around with mixing and trying to get the proper consistency (especially someone who doesnt work in masonary,) then its worth the few extra bucks in my opinion.

Floors need to be completely redone
This never dries. We put it under 6x6 tile, waited weeks to grout, when we finally grouted, grout popped, so we pulled up a couple of tiles only to find that mortar was as wet as the day we put it down, except in the corners where air could get to it. There, it adhered to our subfloor and now the whole thing has to be replaced.

This worked great on my small project of tiling the stair risers on my entry steps. Convenient and easy. Looked great when completed.

This is the worst thin set mortar I ever used.
I used to for small floor tiles in my bathroom and wall tiles. Installed the tiles following directions, let it set and checked them after a few days of drying. ALL THE MORTAR WAS STILL WET! I had to pull up all the tiles and redo it with a Mapei thin set which worked like a charm. I will be returning this garbage and contacting the manufacturer for a full refund.

Product is very easy to use and this size is perfect for small areas to be tiled. Read directions, watch some videos on installation and it will go very smoothly. Tip - not to put too much down as to making the thin set seep out between the tiles, as this is what grout is for. The thin set is to be like a peanut butter like glue thickness to set the tile.
