Comment:
Same as other comment. There are 2 compartments where water gets in. I did use it once, it did work well. I put it into the dishwasher and something like a seed got caught inside. Can not get it out. This is after only 1 use. Imagine how it will be after several washes?!?! Are these tried out before they are sold!?!?!
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I'm going to have to return this unit simply because two parts of it can't be cleaned. After first use, I put the washable parts in the dishwasher. When I took them out later, I saw that there was a liquidy mess stuck inside two places of the unit of which there is no access to.<br /><br />It's that clear piece with the black plastic piece running inside of it that has a spring on the bottom, that is behind the feed tube and large bowl. Not only can I not get into it to clean it, I don't even see what the purpose of it is. The manual doesn't mention it or even show it in the pictures.
