We have 60-year-old Philippine Mahogany kitchen cabinets with original stain (dark) and varnish. Since the wood is great quality, we wanted to see if we could strip the goopy old stain and varnish (yuk!) off and re-stain 'em.
At the recommendation of the Home Depot staff member I purchased this product and let me tell you...WOW it was amazing!
Yes, the cans are hard to open as one reviewer mentioned, but not impossible. You just have to push down and turn while grabbing very firmly.
As for the other low reviews, the only reason I can think of is that people left it on for WAY too long. You can't let it dry out otherwise it won't work. One coat applied for 5-15 minutes (apply and leave it alone...don't mess with it or re-brush over it) was all I needed to strip off the sealant and most of the stain, and following the stripping procedure with a light sanding, my cabinets look incredible! I can't wait to finish them all.
This product works great on vertical surfaces, cleans up with water, and has no foul odor. I love it and will definitely use it again.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, no odor
Cons: dries quickly

No, I do not recommend this product.
Bought THREE cans, none of them open. Took several wrenches and grip gloves to it, still won't open. I'm a grown man, not weak, this is just foolish product design. Looked online and tons of people have the same issue. Save the frustration, get something else.
Cons: Difficult to Use, non-openable

No, I do not recommend this product.
Very slow and weak acting paint remover. Took 3/4 quart, three coats, and one hour to barely remove 2 coats of aerosol spray paint from a 18" X 36" metal panel. I long for the days of strong products that work.

Have had good results with Jasco. I use Smart Strip (less toxic) first. We have a 100 year old house, and smart strip is good for the 15+ layers of paint over every surface, then use Jasco because it is a good finishing product. I've used it mostly on our interior doors. I let the smart strip sit for 12-24 hours, then scrape that off. Then use Jasco to get the rest (it's faster acting on the last little bit for and crevices).
Pros: High Quality
Cons: Difficult to Use

No, I do not recommend this product.
Stripping the finish from chairs just did not work. Perhaps the claims are incorrect on the container. It does say it removes dry paint on the web. There is some inconsistency here. I will try a different brand which indicates finishes other than dry paint. I, too, long for the days when the strippers actually just let the paint or finish 'peel' off. What a pain!
