Comment:
If you don't value your time or money then buy this product. The bladder system and cleaning solution system will clog up. 2nd one that I owned and will not buy this brand again. I spent more time repairing than cleaning. Perhaps CR should do a longer term test and give this product the low rating it actually deserves.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Worst machine I ever owned. WE threw it away after about 5 uses. I spent more time repairing the machine than using it. The bladder system, is very messy and hard to clean. The bottom line is this is a poorly designed and built product. Consumer reports should be rating product durability better!!!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
