Got mine - sadly going to the us rather than Canada so will have to arrange visit to @patris when I return from Dallas - I love my visits but the smuggling makes me a bit nervous at times

It was a little loud, but I didn't have the feeder cap on which according to the instruction videos I've since watched will reduce the noise quite a bit.  It was also the first use mostly out of the box (I did clean the food contact surfaces) after just skimming through the instructions so I need to make sure everything is put together properly.

so those who bought the first run, does it feel like a quality build?

 

Yes, the materials are top notch and it's heavy and even has suction cups on the bottom which I wish they'd put on food processors.

This is Cherry syrup, it fizzes too much when coke is added to it so I want to remove as much of the solids as I can.  I had a ~750 ml so I divided it into two batches, max volume for the Spinzall is  486ml.

After adding Pectinex Ultra SP-L & Kieselsol, waiting 15 mins, adding Chitosan, waiting 15 mins to add more Kieselsol and then waiting 30 mins, the break is clear - the left batch was spun first - the right batch continued to separate.

Here the spinzall is active, spinning at 4100 rpm then 3600 rpm. I'm using batch mode for the first time - the spout on the right is for continuous mode.

Here is the solid's left behind.

Look how much clearer the syrup is now. (I'll try to get an before and after later since I have more syrup)

Here is the remaining solids - it tastes like cherry candy.

From what I'd read I didn't know it had a batch mode.  I thought it was only continuous.  Now, unfortunately, I want one.  How much does the thing weigh?

Shipping box weight is 20lbs, though it's very well packed so I'd put it around 15lbs give or take a few.  It's dense but seems about the same as our food processor or stand mixer.

Now I want one and don't know what for.

 

But I clearly need this thing

I received an email from Dave Arnold a few hours ago, apparently he saw that video I posted on Youtube and thought my Spinzall was vibrating a little too much at speed and offered to help resolve any problems.  Pretty good customer service when they contact you before you know if you have a problem or not.
