If your glue gun does any or all of these things, it might be time to break up with it and find a new model. After hours and hours of testing 6 models—4 corded and 2 cordless—of wildly varying prices, we've pinned down our favorites. The Dewalt Rapid Heat Ceramic Glue Gun is one of our favorites of the corded bunch, and it's also the least expensive.
And the Dewalt stands up to its manufacturer’s claim that it heats up 50% faster than its competitors too. Other things we loved about this gun is that it only weighs 8.30 ounces, the lightest of all we tested.
Note: reviews on Amazon are mixed in that some consumers complain about the gun not feeding the glue sticks properly.
Although we wanted to love the Surebonder Pro 2-100, we sort of expected to love the Stanley GR 100 Glue-Pro DualMelt.
A light indicator signaling that the unit is “on” and a removable cover on the tip to prevent burns. Plus, it has a great rubber-polymer over-mold on the handle for a sound grip and at about 11.5 ounces is still quite nimble.
First, the 80-watt Stanley GR 100 Glue-Pro takes 10 minutes to reach maximum heat—the longest of all the glue guns we tested.
After we tested the Surebonder Pro 2-100, we didn’t expect to be blown over by the Surebonder PRO2-220 220-Watt Adjustable Temperature Industrial Glue Gun, but we were. Another thing we loved about the Pro2-220 was the ergonomic trigger, which is, again, great for those with joint issues.
First up is Black & Decker’s 125-watt 20v Max Lithium Cordless glue gun which is part of the Black & Decker 20v Max Lithium System. First, the glue gun itself is quite reasonably priced at $36, but that’s predicated upon you already owning the battery and charger, which you may already own if you happen to have one of Black & Decker 20v Max series’s tools. Enter the 200 watt Master Appliance GG-100K Master PortaPro Butane Powered Glue Gun Kit, which set us back about $53.
Comparing cordless to cordless, both the Black & Decker have their drawbacks as far as nimbleness is concerned. So, to recap, we recommend the Dewalt 50 watt Rapid Heat Ceramic Glue Gun ($24) for the casual to average crafter. For the serious crafter and DIYer, the Surebonder PRO2-220 220-Watt Adjustable Temperature Industrial Glue Gun ($119) cannot be beat.
Although I'm a writer by education and profession, I have a not-so-secret DIY and craft (of almost any kind) addiction.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Seriously, we intentionally bumped it this way and that but the Dewalt did NOT want to tip over when propped up on its kickstand.
No biggie, but when installed it wasn't very stable, which makes the Surebonder Pro2-100 a bit tippy.
The kickstand is plastic and, we’re sorry to say, can’t keep the gun upright if its life depended on it. When we kicked the Stanley’s stand down and set the unit on the table, the tip of the extended gluing tip touched the work surface. When we first fired it up, we noticed that that momentary LED went on and then blinked off after about a minute or so.
But purchased separately, a battery and charger will set you back $25 and $36 respectively.
It’s true we were psyched about handling the cordless Black & Decker, but the Master had us absolutely giddy. Just invert the gun, slip the butane canister’s nozzle into the valve on the bottom of the gun and pump.
At only 15.30 ounces with a full tank of gas it’s just under a pound less than the Black & Decker, but it takes butane and not a battery, which is both good and bad.
The former has a battery pack that can get in the way; the Master has a bigger-than-average handle in which to fit the butane tank that can make it cumbersome. Located in the USA, Glenmar offers glue guns, modules, nozzles, filters and other parts with a top quality guarantee.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. When fully heated, the glue's flow was exceptional; it was completely melted and ran crystal clear. We used the standard tip (the one with which the gun was shipped) when we first tested the glue melt time and feed.
Set at 400 degrees, the gun was fully hot in 2 minutes and the resulting glue flowed perfectly, was crystal clear and went right where we were aiming it. In remote locations, both on job sites or if you’re living off the grid, the PortaPro could very well be a must-have. If anyone has any further questions about the individual products reviewed, I'll do my best to answer them for you. For all-around crafting and lightweight DIYing, we do not hesitate recommending the Dewalt for both quality, function and price.
If, however, the occasional model fails in advancing sticks sufficiently, it’s recommended that you clean the gripper with isopropyl alcohol to remove any oil in shipping.


We checked the gun at that time, and the glue—although melted—came out rather thick and was still opaque. We assumed correctly that the scent would dissipate with time (it took about a week), but we felt it should be mentioned just in case ours wasn't the only one doing it. Besides the price tag, at 1 pound and 3 ounces the Pro2-220 isn’t the lightest glue gun on the market to be sure. And yes, the battery does add to the weight of the gun as mentioned earlier, which might make it less nimble than others, but the battery also makes for a great kickstand, making it super stable when in the at-ready position. Minor quibbles aside, we still recommend this glue gun for both crafters to more serious DIYers, but with stipulations.
Even at $80, that’s still a significant price tag, especially when going up against the outstanding Surebonder Pro2-220 for 30 bucks more. To ignite the gun, we pushed the fuel flow control (the wheel at the top of the grip) up and then turned it to the right until we heard the familiar ‘hissing’ sound of gas. As for its cost and its being a cordless glue gun, $73 (for both gun and butane) isn’t bad. This particular model also allows for wrench-free interchangeable tips—although none were included with its purchase.
The tip is so truncated, the glue wicked over its edge, making the glue NOT go where we were expecting. Also, it’s big—about 12” from stem to stern and the biggest we tested—so it’s probably not the best fit for the average crafter.
Our first impressions were positive as the PortaPro came with a case that rivals the Surebonder Pro2-220’s. A quick pull of the ignition switch just under and back from the tip of the gun and the gun was ‘on’. Ultimately, for your average crafter or DIYer, the Black & Decker might be a better choice than the Master.
That’s no problem—we have plenty—but it was still a pain especially compared to the Surebonder, which only requires a manual twist-off. For the serious DIYer, however, it probably doesn’t get much better than the Surebonder Pro2-220. However, the next gun may be a better option if you are yearning for complete off-the-grid glue-gunning. The PortaPro also came with 8 - 6” glue sticks and three extra interchangeable glue tips: flat, needle and a smaller round one. Master claims that the gun will reach full heat at 3 to 4 minutes, but ours was ready in about 2 minutes. But, again, if complete portability and weight are the issue, the Master Appliance GG-100K Master PortaPro Butane Powered Glue Gun Kit could be the answer to your glue-gunning prayers. The B & D comes with a momentary LED switch that stays illuminated when the gun is powered on. Like the Stanley, we did need a wrench to change the tips, which is a bit fiddly. Also on the down side, the kit did not include butane, which was something we didn’t realize until after the glue gun arrived. We were only told how long a full tank of fuel will last (140 minutes) on the gun, not how many refills there are in the individual butane tanks.
