This works perfectly and doesn't seem to attract ants or wasps as the old ones have. It holds close to 4 cups of nectar which you can fill from the top!!! It is suggested that it should be cleaned with hot /warm water (no soap) prior to refilling to avoid mold. I use bleach water (one cap full to the gallon) to kill any existing germs. Then I rinse several times. Then let completely dry before refilling with room-temperature nectar of 3-cups of water to one cup of pure cane sugar. Have to be careful during the hanging process, as the clear part is glass, not plastic.

I've had several styles of the Perky Pet units over the years. Most recently I found I was filling each of the two smaller feeders as much as three times a day. I bought two of these larger units and now only fill each unit once a day.
I've found that I still need to deep clean them about ever fourth day as the heat outside right now is an issue for turning the 4-1 mixture a bit gummy over time. However, with a slight bit of care they are easily disassembled and cleaned. There is a small pilot or bleed hole in the unit that requires attention during the cleaning. Again, no big issue at all. These are some very nice units and I'm glad I found them as I was tired of having to fill the smaller units off and on every few hours.
Another positive is the fact I had Orioles raiding my other units, these two they do not bother at all.
