Bottom Line: Very nice machine with good results all the time
Mark 01.22.2001 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: I  will shop for a different brand next time. The functions were O.K., but I think I can find a machine which lasts for more than 2 yrs for the price.

Bottom Line: Beautiful machine... only problem has been the occasional vapour lock, but easily resolved.
Brendan Getchel (quality: 7.2) 08.31.2001 Rating: 7.2

Don Sucher (quality: 6.6) 01.14.2002 Rating: 9.2

Jon Stackpole (quality: 6.6) 03.07.2002 Rating: 9.0
