  1. I bought one earlier this summer. It's pretty good for a small meal. I like it as an outdoor oven so it doesn't heat up the house. I keep it stored outside, even in the rain (covered), and no problem.
  2. Ditto here. Both of mine work as if they are new and get daily use.
  3. Yes, each. Now that being said, I'd pay full price in a heart beat to replace them if anything were to ever happen to them. It's my most use piece of equipment in the kitchen other than the pots and pans that I use with it.
  4. I got lucky and got both of mine for $800 off eBay. They were listed as "demo" units but came in the box with all the packaging perfectly intact. I was able to get both of them by placing a "offer" that was lower than the asking price... I haven't seen anything close to that price since.
  5. Got my pair of thermometers. Just haven't had time to do much with them yet.
  6. I ordered on day one and haven't gotten any notification of shipping yet.... did you get notification when it went out or was it just a nice surprise?
  7. Just a heads up, Breville is offering 20% off the Control Freak until October 17th; the 20% off seems to include Amazon as well. Good deal for those waiting to pull the trigger.
  8. I have a firmware update that was given to me back in 2018. Since then, they've stopped providing updates. I would say use at your own risk though because there are several models of the Control Freak (mainly based on country of origin I think) and I'm not sure if the update is universal.
  9. Manual says it will flash if there is a failed software update.... I'm assuming you weren't updating the software at the time? Have you tried doing a long press of the power button?
  10. Got it for free with Airmiles It makes a good piece of toast. My big complaint though is the orientation of the buttons. It takes up a lot of counterspace when you have to have it oriented that way. If you could align the long part of the toast with the counter, it would take up much less space. I actually didn't really have a spot for it because of this until I rearranged the kitchen with more wire shelving.
  11. All setup. Aesthetically not the best, but functionally it's a big improvement. Should tide me over until I purchase a new place with a bigger kitchen in hopefully 2 years.
  12. Table arrived. There is definitely something on it giving it a glossy sheen... looks like it may be Polyurtherane. Company is looking into what kind of finish it is for me. Feeling a bit more comfortable prepping on it.
  13. I've chatted live a few times. It's a real person. But yes, with a lot of places it's just a robot. Live chat is closed though so I left a message.
  14. Not working directly with a wood worker; something off the shelf but solid wood nonetheless. @pastrygirlmakes a good point about it being unlikely to be unfinished since it's a dining table. I've ordered it online though and can't assess the finish; the website also doesn't list anything. I just realized though that they have a live chat, so I 'll see if they can tell me anything.
  15. Thanks, I'm pretty good at keeping hot things off counters with trivets and wire racks, so not too concerned about heat. It's mostly moisture. I'll assess the finishing of the table when it arrives and see if I think it'll need some Polyurethane. Don't really want to put a table cloth on it. I'm not a fan of them; covers up the beauty of the wood. I'm seeing they have some clear ones but they seem to bunch up no matter how much you try.
