      Excellent product - mix only what you need
      Works great but found out mixing a whole bag causes the product to setup quickly. I had 200 sq ft of tile to set and it dried out on me a little over 1/3 of the floor. Mixed 1/3 of the next bag and another 1/3 which gave me enough working time for the tiles I had left.

        Will work for porcelain with extra prep work
        I used this product as a DIY for a large basement tile project where I installed 12in porcelain tiles directly to the concrete subfloor. After much research I determined this product is the best value for my application, although it required a bit more careful prep work. I applied a small amount of the thinset to the subfloor and back of the tiles, then used the flat edge of the trowel on an angle to 'burn in' the thinset (use force and a motion like you are trying to squeegee the material off). this forces the thinset into the micropockets and greatly enhances adhesion (also known as back buttering the tiles and floor). I am very confident in the bond strength, after 12 hours I had cracked one corner tile and had to chisel-off the material and it came off in chunks on the back of the perfect tile (a poor bond would allow the tile to just pop right off).

          Worked great for multiple applications
          I was using this for DIY needs, so I was making smaller batches that I could work with. The bag instructions are for mixing a whole batch, so I found some videos on general thinset mixing tips. This mixed easily, I got it to a peanut butter consistency and I haven't had any issues with bond strength. Just make sure you're using the recommended trowel for each application. Depth of notches matter - if it's too shallow you can have poor coverage and it will not bond adequately. This is not an issue with the thinset, but the application of it. I found I had about an hour to apply it after I mixed it. My technique definitely got better over time and I was able to mix slightly larger batches as I went. I used this for a couple different applications: Ditra floor membrane over plywood USG membrane over cement board 5x10 tile and mosaic tile over USG membrane Marble thresholds over USG membrane for shower curb It worked great in all the applications and everything has held up going on two months after the final tile was installed. Very pleased with this thinset overall.

            This is the best thin set I've used so far. Been using it for about 20 years. It mixes well and is great at holding tiles in place. I've used it on floors and in showers
