This thing is soooooo easy to use. Plug it in and go. It’s smaller than I imagined but still manages to be heavy as crap; not something you would want to lug over to a friend’s house on a regular basis. More than enough hydraulic oomph to blow out any bag. Seriously, you can make a mess if you’re not careful. Luckily it’s fairly easy to clean.
I was a little disappointed that the handle is detachable. It’s a sturdy handle but it wiggles all over the place and makes it seem flimsy even though it’s not. It’s your typical bottle jack hidden inside the handsome exterior, which is truly magnificent. It still gives me goosebumps when I turn it on and those LED lights illuminate those shiny plates.
Those plates. That’s where this unit really shines. This is my first unit so I have no real frame of reference but they certainly seem big enough for my non-commercial needs. The plates heat up quick and stay within 1 degree of your set point even during the squish.
Overall, I’m pleased as punch with this unit. It doesn’t feel like it will ever break. But it if does... there’s always that lifetime warranty.
As far as Trimleaf: I got this thing in three days and it was packaged like it was a fabergé egg. Impressive considering my Prime deliveries have been taking 1-2 weeks. They rock. This press rocks.
