Using mine at work as I keep nuts and candy near my desk. This is so much more sanitary than people sticking their hands in the bowl. So far, it dispenses the correct amount to both men and women. We are thinking of buying several more to accomodate other snacks. Three people headed to the mall to get one of their own, so I think it's a winner.

This is a very cool product. I had bought my dad the larger version and it worked fine. However this smaller version only works probably 1 in 4 times you swipe your hand under it. If I put a tissue on my hand it almost assuredly dispenses. It's like the sensor isn't strong enough or isn't sensitive enought and requires and larger surface area to be covered than the average hand. Oddly enough, men have the hardest time getting it to work. I was going to return it but now the novelty is "can i get it to work this time". I've used m&m and candy corn. It's functionality doesn't discriminate between candy types.

They offered to replace it, but the UPS guy had the return label and I had to leave the product on my doorstep and wait till Brookstone got it and then they'd send me a new one. Seemed a hassle to me. I'd rather they email me the label and I return it at my leisure. There is just so much going on at my house I kept forgetting to box it and leave it! I give up.

      the thought is cool but it's inconsistent and it's much smaller than the one my co-worker got. there was only one listed for sale so i figured it was the same thing my coworker got.

          I put in M&M peanut butter candy. When the motion sensor works it does kick out candy. The problem is it doesn't work most of the time. You can move your hand under it, side to side, up and down and nothing. I have brand new batteries in it. Don't waste your money.

                was a gift. hate this thing. save your money and put candy in a "bowl"...what a concept. Bad design. Why put the control on the back and the output on the front? it just keeps coming out and spills all over the floor.

                  Comments about SnackMan? Motion-Activated Treat and Candy Dispenser:

                  Hadn't used this for a long time, it was just sitting on the counter. Filled it with peanuts, turned on the switch on the back and then remembered why I hadn't used it. Peanuts were in a pile on the counter and floor this morning. We have tried different locations, cleaning everything we could clean on the unit and use the AC adapter, so power is not the problem.

                  Bad design, that apparently hasn't gotten better.

                  Would not recommend.

                    THE PRODUCT WAS VERY NICE. THEY WERE JUST MUCH BIGGER THAN I THOUGHT, SO I RETURNED THEM. I RETURNED THEM ON DECEMBER 22,2014, STILL NO REFUND AS OF TODAY JAN 4, 2015. THE REFUND IS TAKING MUCH LONGER THAN THE RECEIVEING DID.

                    We have two of these for the office. One to dispense peanuts and one to dispense M&Ms. One of them was assembled and filled with M&Ms and it does not work. We have all tried new batteries and cleaning it out and re filling etc. and it still does not work. How do I return for a new one?

                          I bought this for my office to replace my candy dish. While it looks very cool it seems like candy gets stuck in it or sometimes candy comes out when your not ready. The sensor seems very unreliable. I think it would be best if it were a push button.
