Not much going it's favor Old model Overpriced to start with Capacity too small One item that will get used once or twice then get chucked to the back of a cupboard (take a look at ebay and see how many used ones there are on offer) Better off buying a cheap pressure cooker and hand blender as they will make more soup quicker and better.
I hope amazon are not trying to pull a fast one! There are some available as used under the same listing but from different buyers, so not unless that part of the description is there to cover all the buying options available and to avoid separate listing for the same product. I would imagine like ebay, amazon wouldp only advertise the sale as New if it was an unused item. So provided you buy the one that is new and sold and dispatched by amazon you should hopefully get a new product. I could be wrong though (cheeky)
how can it be sold as new but refurbished? described as may have signs of use cleaned and reboxed so it's used then (confused)
