The Roto Sorter

The Roto Sorter
By: Amy Jacquin

The Roto Sorter will save you the time and aggravation of rolling loose change yourself... If it works!

The $20 Roto Sorter is pieced together in just a few minutes. Amy Jacquin adds two AA batteries, and she's ready to go.

"It doesn't say how much change to put in at first," Amy wonders as she pours some change into the sorter... Which jams within seconds! "Obviously, that was too much. We have a jam up here. And look down here, we have another jam down here."

Amy discovers it's easier to put it in a little at a time, instead of all at once. It jams less that way.

She continues adding more coins, and MOST of them make the proper tube... But a fair share don't, and some even fall completely out of the machine.

"I have to keep un-jamming it, even with just a few of them in there," Amy says as she works on the Roto Sorter. "And the box claims this provides hours of fun! Ha!"

As the coins slide down the Roto Sorter, it looks a little like "Connect 4" or "Plinko" from the Price is Right... But Amy doesn't call is "fun."

The Roto Sorter is faster than rolling on your own... But you need to roll pretty many coins to make it worth $20. So you don't need a penny for Amy thoughts... She's giving it to you for free! The Roto Sorter is mediocre, and earns a C.
