I received this bubbler as a birthday gift back in August and I loved it! It's so cute. I even dropped it once and there was no damage. When I received it I noticed that the boil sometimes stuck a bit when I tried to remove it from the bubbler, but I didn't think anything of it. I didn't use it for about a week and I left the bowl in the bubbler. The next time I used it, I couldn't get the bowl out. I've tried hot water, cleaning with alcohol, and putting fire to the point where it connects, but it is stuck in there good! My advice is not the leave the bowl in the bubbler for extended periods of time. Otherwise I really loved this.
