PROS

A great evolution of the magic milk bottle.

You get a DVD, an already prepared bottle, and an additional item to repair your bottle if needed. The gimmicked bottle is very well made and is not likely to require any maintenance for quite a long time.

The DVD also teaches you how to make your own gimmicked bottle if you want to use a different type of bottle or if you want to make a new one in case your bottle has either been damaged or thrown out by mistake. In the DVD, he said that it is not uncommon for him t leave this prop lying around at a gig, only to find out that someone has thrown it out, thinking it is trash.

He covers the various bottles that could be used, including glass bottles.

He teaches several routines, including pouring juice into a glass and then pouring out an orange from the glass, pouring liquid into a glass and tossing the contents of the glass into the audience, but it’s confetti instead of liquid, liquid to silk, liquid to mouth coil, liquid to streamer, etc. Other ideas include ghost drinking, one liquid that converts to a different liquid, pouring liquid into a child’s ear, sweet drink poured into a cup and it turns into sugar packets, etc.

The bottle doesn’t have to be refilled and it is completely self contained.

The effect is very easy to perform and could be performed surrounded.

The effect is true to the ad copy. If you like what you saw on the ad, you are going to love the method.

CONS

This is a really nice prop and an excellent method.

In the videos, you can see that the movement of the liquid doesn’t look natural. I think louie was rushing through the performances and explanations. I found that with just a bit of practice and a bit of patience, which Louie doesn’t seem to have, you can make it look very realistic.

There is a chance that it may leak. You will need to handle it somewhat carefully and you will need to transport it in a ziplock just in case. On the DVD, Louie discusses how to wrap it in paper towels and place it in a ziplock for travel. If the unit does leak, it is pretty easy to fix.

VERDICT

One small step for Louie, one giant leap forward for magic-kind from the ol’ milk pitcher routine.

Manufacturer's Description:

Evaporation - A Totally New Way to Vanish Liquid

It's time to throw away your grandpa's milk pitcher, and get ready for Evaporation! This is brand new method for making liquid disappear!

About a year ago I began creating Evaporation out of a need to make some liquid disappear. Evaporation's unique gimmick has been tweaked over the course of hundreds of shows and I believe it's the best method for vanishing liquid! Here are some great reasons to throw away your grandpa's old Magic Milk Pitcher and join the 21st Century with Evaporation:

Self contained, so when traveling you don't need 2 containers (one to carry the liquid and then one for the trick)!

No refilling, the liquid never leaves the container!

Resets in less than 3 seconds!

Can handle bottle freely (unlike a milk pitcher, ghost glass, etc), you can even juggle it!

Is physically smaller than a milk pitcher, but equally as visual!

Evaporation works close up or on stage!

What Evaporation Does:
At any point in your show, you pick up a bottle of juice that's been sitting on the table and pour it into a hat, cup, newspaper, your closed fist, or some other container and the juice disappears! Or better yet the juice changes to something else!

What You Get:
You get the Evaporation gimmick, DVD and printed instructions. The Evaporation gimmick is available in orange juice bottles, and the DVD teaches you how to use your gimmick along with many ways to use Evaporation.
