Nostalgia Electrics™ Party Fountain Illuminated Punch Bowl
I purchased this product for a party and its nice t look at. I put it together to try out. Its nice to look at. However it is so noisy when the motor is running I had to turn it off. There is an awful rattle. I would not mind paying more for a higher quality product had I known about the noise. I will return the product.

This is much more for decoration
If you're looking for a unit that offers a nice looking display, then this punch bowl is for you! If you want a functional punchbowl that doesn't require constantly filling it up to the 'fill line' then please look for something else.
I bought this for the value because I thought it also would offer utility -- but, even the instructions suggest that you must keep the liquid at the "Fill Line" and not below it for the fountain to work properly. Yet, keeping the bowl at the fill line would require constantly pouring liquid therein. Also, you cannot use anything with carbonation or it will create bubbles that causes trouble for keeping the liquid moving.
Buy for decorative purposes only.

This is a wonderful fountain but you can not over fill it ,
it is best to turn the fountain and then fill it and stop when splashing appears but it worked great the kids had a wonderful time with it

I purchased this for my daughter's wedding. It was so embarrassing, it splatters everywhere. Within the first 2 minutes it had ruined the tablecloths where it was sitting. We had to turn the fountain off within the first 10 minutes of the reception.

Nice out the box
I purchased this item for a birthday party and I did not get to use it because it appeared to be a bit much to put together. However, I was surprised to see that it was such a large item. I look forward to seeing what it looks like fully displayed.

I wish it didn't splash the punch
The Punch Bowl looks good and it works the way it displayed, but the splash of punch with water fountain made the surrounding sticky.
