At least they have coated that pesky aluminium bowl with ceramic, too bad they did not just upgrade to S/S, prolly due to cost more than heat up times?
I will get one(maybe, that crappy LCD screen is a worry)...Black Friday if they are cheap enough.
To me, small incremental improvements (oh, it will stand up straight on its own....still my beating heart sigh) for mo' money.
My OG Mighty is still working fine, batt capacity is in a bit of decline but not bad, and I'm with @Helios in that I'm not dropping that kind of change for small improvements.
By the by, as for the aluminum being now clad in ceramic...ok, I'm fine with that. But I've always thought that people who get REALLY upset about aluminum anywhere in their airpath....and who do NOT have some sort of associated specific medical risk....probably have zero idea how much aluminum they consume just living. But, each to their own neurosis...I have plenty myself, trust me! haha
"Most unprocessed foods, except for certain herbs and tea leaves, contain low (< 5 micrograms Al/g) levels of aluminum. Thus most adults consume 1-10 mg aluminum daily from natural sources. Cooking in aluminum containers often results in statistically significant, but not practically important, increases in the aluminum content of foods. Intake of aluminum from food additives varies greatly (0 to 95 mg Al daily) among residents in North America, with the median intake for adults being about 24 mg daily. Generally, the intake of aluminum from foods is less than 1% of that consumed by individuals using aluminum-containing pharmaceuticals."
Aluminium in the food supply comes from natural sources including water, food additives, and contamination by aluminium utensils and containers. Most unprocessed foods, except for certain herbs and tea leaves, contain low (< 5 micrograms Al/g) levels of aluminium. Thus most adults consume 1-10 mg …
It is not just health concerns, that aluminium gets very stained and nasty looking, very hard to clean compared to S/S or ceramic...plus it scratches so easily and just screams cheap and nasty, matches the plastic body and CU I suppose.
