SimpleSet Gray 3-1/2 Gal. Pre-Mixed Thin-Set Mortar is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 159.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Read, prep, add more drying time than stated - not as terrible as other reviews Someone has to give this product an average review. Under the best conditions and small tile this product might dry in 24 hours. Under 12x12 ceramic tile expect 72 hours or longer. This will adhere to old cutback adhesive, floor paint, and other surfaces not ideal for tiling projects. Expect to use at least 2x the proposed coverage. Trowel as directed on floor and back-butter tile for best adhesion then stay off it for 3 full days. I can't remove the cured tiles without damaging the tile (what you expect) and it certainly won't clean up at this point - again, what you expect. It's a different product than the bag mix - read up and test. 12x12 ceramic tile in basement, 65 degrees, over old cutback, floor paint and less than perfect cement. Would I recommend...sure. Just get a gallon size and test. Knowing what you are getting into is 1/2 the battle...and every "pro" should know that no two jobs are the same.

Can dry quickly, which is good for setting tile, but can be harder to work with when you're trowling without experience. We used it to joint the cement boards together and set the bottom row of tiles. Then went with tile adhesive for the rest. This was a personal choice, tile adhesive is much easier to work with, but takes longer to dry. This thinset is good to use but it might be better to mix your own for bigger jobs.

Spreads evenly and stays moist for a considerable amount of time, allowing one to work with it while laying several tiles. Met all my expectations and made the job of laying my tile much easier. The price is a little high compared to the powder. It is about 3 times more expensive but it cuts the application time in half.

It’s been almost two weeks and my tile is still not dry. Now I have to pay my tile installer more $$ to rip it up and reinstall. I can’t believe HD would sell this garbage!

It would fall off the wall when touched and was difficult to work with. It stuck to the tools better than the wall and unless it was perfectly forced into the wall, it would peel off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT USE! It is hard to even give this a one star. This is horrible stuff. Contractor used on shower floor. We had to rip it out and use the bag to lay the tile. My feet were sinking in the shower. Do not use!!! Home depot should not even be selling this.

It allows me to stop my job whenever I want to without it getting hard and having to throw it out and spend more money on the mortar you have to mix yourself.
