I love mine. Mostly I use Speedpaints, so there are fewer problems, and I haven't been painting "big stuff" like terrain, so brush size isn't a problem. Cheap an it's smaller size means it's less of a table hog. OK, I also love the popping the next morning--even old guys like me need some fun.

I saw this week that Dollar Tree has some small ones, I think 4x4, in bright colors.

I just picked one up, they are perfect for speed paints which come in dropper bottles and are runny like inks and washes. They dry quickly so having them in a small dip that keeps the paint from spreading out is perfect. They are easy to clean as well. Army Painter should consider including these instead of the white plastic mixing pallet they use now.

Just found one on Amazon – shaped like a hex and comes in multiple colors. Grey works great as a paint tray.

So much better than the hard plastic trays!

I have been using mine for a about a year, its great, though as you noted keeping it spotless can be challenge. Also superglue absolutely destroys these, I lost a pop that way :)

Pringles lids are still a go to alongside this as dried paint peels off those to.
