So it’s around 32 lbs - I’m adding the spec sheet here.

 

They have the 220V 50Hz version and it's only 310W? Very interesting!

I see they will be at the fair in Milan, so I suppose their products will be available in Italy too. Time to consider the possibility for a blast freezer for home.

Thanks for the infos!

Wow -- 32 pounds.  A baby blast freezer, my dream appliance!  If I hadn't just been to the dentist this week for two crowns and a filling.  Who needs teeth for ice cream?

 

Very unlikely I could order in 30 days for the pre-order price but I still am interested.  Do I read correctly that the dimensions are 450x507x647mm?  (Sorry, it was a little hard to see.)

 

Thanks again!  I think warmly of you every time I caress my Precise Heat Mixing Bowl.

Tonight's dinner was at Edo Wine and Tapa's.

 

The waiter felt it necessary to explain everything to us ad nauseum. He seemed to feel I should be looking at girly drinks.

I opted for the Bitter Andy.

Patates Bravas - very interesting - they slice the potatoes on a mandoline - layer them 30 slices thick - then press between two sheet pans. They bake for 50 min at 350, then cut into these pieces and deep fry. They were quite wonderful!

Pain con tomate - a pale imitation of the version we had at Jaleo.

parking for vegans - so weak from hunger they need to be close I guess

 

followed by an uber ride with a driver who bathes in cologne / I looked like a dog with my head out the window - should have just jumped out - not worth the wheeze and headache

Looks delicious. How was their croissant?

I need to wait a few days to see how my next paycheck shapes up; it will be close.  Did he mention when the freezer is expected to ship?

Still uncertain I think. That seems to be why he’s willing to extend the discount

Sadly, even in times of corona virus units of measure matter.  My long delayed Frysta arrives shortly.  UPS states the weight as 79 lbs/36 kg.  I can't lift 79 lbs.  I can't lift 36 kg either.

Maybe the packaging weighs a lot and when it is unboxed you can find a way to move it. Perhaps some of your coworkers could help... maybe give them some Rancho Gordo beans. Hope you can make this work out.

I wondered how they got a freezer to weigh 32 lbs.

 

Unless it's the size of a toaster. Do you know the horsepower of the compressor? I have a 1/10th hp water chiller that doesn't weigh more than 30 lbs

Specification not given.  The power is listed as 210 Watts which would be 0.281615 horsepower.  Wish I had a horse to help get it upstairs.  If I ever get it unpacked and operational I will measure the power.
