Now I am really pissed. Icydeals is screwing up bad. Sent me a tracking number stating they shipped on the 19th, USPS just confirmed electronic shipping notice from them on the 21st. Still no merchandise shipped. Whooo Boy, wait till they see my feedback on this. Gonna blast em with a zero stars for jerking me around. So I say stay away from "Icydeals", and apologize to anyone I may have influenced to buy from them.

You can't go by the USPS tracking I have an order from an online seller where the dates are all over the place.

Did you get free shipping ? Most of the big sellers on ebay don't rush out a shipment unless you buy the one or two day shipment. If you got a good deal and get your item in a reasonable amount of time , I wouldn't be in a hurry to blast a seller with a 0 stars.

Yeah, I definitely agree. USPS tracking is nearly worthless. Dates are always all over the place and it doesn't seem to update until you've actually received your package. Have some patience and give em a chance before you flame the seller too hard.

Thanks guys, I buy quite a bit on Ebay and usually get about a one week turn around to Fla from Cali. I have used USPS and UPS mostly and know the Postal service is notorious for not updating. The reason I am pissed is because it was over a week from order to electronic data being sent to the postal service. There still is no confirmation they have the package. There ad states clearly that they ship within 3 days of a paid order. I used instant payment so it should have shipped no later than the 17th. The ad also said UPS and now it is USPS which is traditionally much slower over that distance. My issue therefore is failing to adhere to their own terms of service and lackadaisical response when asked about the status of the package. I can live with whatever time it takes, but dont tell me one thing, make me agree to it, then do something completely different. That's my gripe with the whole deal.

Wow! It would appear that since my posting of that link, they have discontinued that kettle. Anyway, it's www.spikebrewing.com and they're a sponsor of HBT, worthy of our support.

I received mine today. This thing is huge! I cant wait to use it for my first try at BIAB! Its a little thinner than i hoped, but it will do just fine.

I still cant believe how much of a steal this thing was. Theyve jacked the price up go $60 now, so I feel very lucky to have jumped on this.
