I received one as a gift and after one stick of butter, it stopped spraying. I followed ALL trouble shooting guidelines. Company asked if I wanted a replacement or did I prefer to wait for the new and improved version. I decided to wait. After month, I gave up and told them to just send me another sprayer even if it was the old model. After 1 stick of butter it started again to squeak and then stopped working. Now they won't return my emails.
