We just return the 2nd machine to Costco. 1st one broke within a month and 2nd one worked about a year and start melting plastics inside the machine. We could see the melted plastics on the bottle cover surface. It was still within warranty period, which is 2 years from the manufacturing date without receipt or one year from purchase, so they would have fixed it at their cost, yet we would have to pay for the shipping to manufacturing factory in CT. I decided to just return it to Costco with a full refund.

We were using it probably 2-3 times a month, so we did get good use of it. But, for the price of the machine, I expect a better durability. We handled it very carefully every time, so I don't think we have ever abused it. It must have some sort of wireing issue. Bottom line, it is a great waffle maker if it does not break on you. I would not buy anywhere else unless you have a good return policy or warranty.
