Product Review - Better Bobbin Thread Winder

I recently had the opportunity to try out the Better Bobbin Thread Winder. 
It's a handy little gadget used to refill your bobbin without having to unthread your sewing machine. Let's take a closer look....

 When your bobbin is ready to be refilled, you simply remove it from your machine. With the presser foot of your machine raised, and leaving your machine threaded, following the step-by-step number guide on the top of the winder, slip your thread end through step 1, around step 2 and then through the hole in your bobbin just as you normally would to refill it. Place your bobbin on the winder at step 3. Then flip the "off" lever against the empty bobbin and press the black button to start the winder. 
It's FAST!!!!!! I was surprised at how fast. 
In a matter of seconds, you will have a full bobbin ready to sew again and don't have to bother with re-threading your machine! I love that! :) When your bobbin is full, you simply pull the small blue lever back to the "off" position and cut your thread. 

This compact little muscle of a machine also includes a thread cutter that you can see on the top, and the lid includes a stand for a large spool of thread as you can see in the first photo, so your bobbin can be filled separately from your machine as well if you choose. 
 Quick Overview:
PROS: Very fast and easy to use. 
Saves time from having to re-thread your machine.
Compact for storage.
Long cord.

CONS: Doesn't shut off automatically when bobbin is full.
Doesn't seem to consistently get as even and tight of a wind on the bobbin as my machine does. 

There you have it, the Better Bobbin Thread Winder. 
All in all, a fun, little gadget that I have enjoyed using for sure!

Very cool product. I actually enjoy taking a break and unthreading my machine...does that make me weird?

Thanks for the review. I like the idea of not having to rethread the machine.
