“Hit & Miss”

Written on: 04/07/2013 by Kate1888 (1 review written)

Initially with first pod, I thought 'great product' no mess, cleaned as it said it would, just like the demonstration in B & Q. Seemed worth the more expensive paint. My son used it shortly after and it would not work properly - resorted to ordinary roller. When I used again, the trigger snapped. Wrote to Dulux who gave me a credit note for another. Have just used replacement Paintpod and it fails to work - appears to be 'dead' although blue light on. Tried all the troubleshooting… Read Full Review

Glad to see we not the only people having problems with these. Had same problem from brand new > Got all set up blue light on but nothing ,replaced batteries, nothing !! Phoned company and straight away said they would send a voucher for a replacement, but sounds from above still not going to work !! Have three expensive pots of paint for it as well. So wouldn't recommend pro!duct

I was given one buy a customer and love it!! Iv used paint pod paint, dulux mixed colours, farrow and ball Wickes and crown perfect Finnish every time! No spray no mess it's so easy a child could use it. It does take a couple of hot water cycles to clean and a little Time wiping the rolling arm over but well worth the Effort for the Finnish and speed!… Read Full Review

How did you use other colours besides the specific paint pod ones? That is my only hesitation on buying a paint pod - the limited choice of colours..

“Its great, bought cheap and using cheaper paint is...”

Written on: 28/01/2013

I bought this machine after much decision making, even though it was reduced to 24.99 at Yorkshire Trader. Read some good and bad reviews. Not constantly using the trigger is the answer, and try and use like you would use a manual roller, when its fuelled with paint stop pressing trigger and roll the paint out until it needs priming again. Cleaning took about two full cleans and two drains, and i removed the roller to hand clean it. At the end of the day I like it, it was spreading paint… Read Full Review

“Less useful than a chocolate teapot”

Written on: 26/01/2013 by vanderboon (1 review written)

The dulux paintpod ranks with such technological advances as the chocolate teapot. Utter s**t, I would make less mess sucking the paint through a tube and spitting it onto the wall. Don't buy one, don't borrow one, if you see one smash it with a hammer. Rubbish paint coverage (unless you count the skirting boards and floor). Uneven paint coverage (unless you count the skirting boards and the floor). Pointless invention, I'm glad I only borrowed it from my father-in-law. Buy a paint tray… Read Full Review

“Not good enough”

Written on: 17/01/2013 by teresabu421 (1 review written)

Purchased with great expectations having read the burb. Reality is, it's easy to use but clean, efficient and value for money it is not. Regular roller and paint will do the job just as well with a great deal less effort and mess, at a fraction of the cost… Read Full Review

“Works OK but paint not washable. No good if you have kids!”

Written on: 07/01/2013

System worked well and self cleaned OK, but paint is thin and 2 coats may well be needed, and it doesn't come cheap! Also, the whole point of covering the original builders emulsion in my 4 year old house was to make it kid proof and washable, which this paint is definitely not… Read Full Review

“rubbish product with high price tag”

Written on: 20/09/2012 by folkestonelad (1 review written)

i did not use the painter immediately after purchase.The batteries had leaked.cleaned up the battery holder and put in new batteries.Okay so away we go or so you think,the paint is poor quality and the batteries run out very quicly even though you use as directed.I also found that contrary to Dulux claims there is paint that splashes off the end s of the roller.In my opinion the feed tube is far to long.I got fed up so i emptied some of the paint into a plastic roller tray and what came out… Read Full Review

“Absolute rubbish don't waste your money!!!”

Written on: 13/08/2012

Bought this last week as it looks so easy on the adverts...I couldn't of been more wrong! After initial assembly which was easy (only good thing I can say!) I started cutting in then rolled the paint onto the Walls...here's where the nightmare began! Firstly for some reason the paint seems to take a different effect when you cut in than when you use the roller so you get a 'picture frame' effect on the walls. Secondly the paint is poor quality, after two coats you still have a patchy effect and… Read Full Review

I have to say I agree with everything. It's too economical with the paint! Very slow and a waste of both time and money. Bought a roller kit £4.99 -
And I'm starting again

One of the best gadgets I have ever bought makes painting a piece of cake. Contrary to previous reviews my paintpod has worked without a hitch. Brilliant wall coverage no drips and good cleaning. I used to hate painting. Now its a doddle. Done the dining room and sitting room in one day no problem. Highly recommend… Read Full Review
