My main complaint with this is that it appears to be strongly European. British English and European Spanish! Not the best buy for a Southwesterner looking for definitions of words in business signs or ads. For example, the word "piloncillo," which turns up often in grocery ads, is not in this dictionary. My falling-apart U of Chicago at least has "Am.: unrefined sugar loaf," which gave me a clue to the local meaning of "brown sugar cone."
Of course, most definitions will be fine and there are some definitions marked "Amer."
No dictionary I have found gives a meaning for the locally common business "Yerberia" or "Herberia." There may be other spellings. Anyone have a dictionary with this word?
