Has anyone used the Sassie Shot isomalt melting gun?

post #1 of 65

I'm wondering if just a regular glue gun would do the same thing and a Sassie Shot which is $53.

From my understanding it is supposed to be a lot safer than trying to use a regular glue gun (sugar drips and can spatter from a regular glue gun?). I ordered one at ICES, but have yet to receive mine. It was originally supposed to ship in October, but the last I heard it was supposed to ship in early December. I really hope I get it soon so I can try it out.

No problem. Just an update, apparently the SassieShotz people are way behind schedule because I still haven't received it yet, despite the promise of October, then November, then December, then early January delivery. As of the last contact it is supposed to be shipped by then end of the month....we'll see. So if you order one be prepared for a major delay in receiving it.

I ordered one at the ices convention. I have never received it. I don,t hear from them, unless i send e-mail asking what is going on. I am so unhappy with these people. I am going to e-mail this new week and ask for my money back. I really don,t even want it now, the way they have treated everyone. I,ve got patiences, but this takes the cake!!!!

I agree, I am seriously thinking that they are never going to follow through. It's always some different excuse. My husband is guessing that they ran out of production money. This may not be the nicest thing to do but I have started aking publicly and expressing my frustration on their FB everytime they put out a new product announcement. They keep advertising the isomalt sticks but seriously, how am I supposed to use them without the gun (yes, I know I can melt and pour)??!! The customer service has been abhorent! If I dont have the product by then end of January ( the latest date quote) I am going to have the charge reversed on my credit card. I wish another company would come out with a similar product, as I would just purchase from them. Anything has to be better than this. I'm wary of the other products they offer because of this. It's absolutely disgusting.

*Our first guns are arriving on Monday! We're only getting a small amount in the first shipment, but it will be the first of many shipments. We'll fill orders every week until everyone who ordered in 2011 has been shipped. Thanks again for your patience!*

I will believe it when I see one sitting in a box at my front door.

Uploaded with ImageShack.us Have you ever tried this? I break up the isomalt sticks, just what I need, and melt them down in these. Since they're flexible, you can bend it to make a "spout" as small as you need. When you're done, just let the isomalt cool, crunch the sides of the cup with your fingers, and dump the isomalt back into a baggie. Might work while you're waiting for your gun.

Just Got This Note From My Supplier
I know that everybody has been anxiously awaiting the Sassie Gun, and unfortunately, I have no new estimates at this point in time. I have been in touch with Get Sassie every week, and I do have a bit more information on why there has been such a delay. Before a manufacturing run goes out, Get Sassie receive a sample from the manufacturer. The sample they received has not perfect, and it had to go back to the manufacturers to re-make. They have had to do this a couple of times from what I understand. So rather than release an imperfect product, they have delay the release. They still have not received production run from the manufacturer yet. As soon I they have, they will let me know, and I will let all of you know. icon_cry.gif
