First post, please be gentle. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this available at Bing Lee and although the price is not the cheapest, I am heading to my local Bing Lee store to pick one up now as I did not want to risk missing out again especially if this model will be discontinued and only sold packaged with the Smart Grinder Pro at a steeper price point.
I hope this post helps those that are still looking to get this machine but had no luck finding stock. I phoned Breville last month and spoke to 2 separate representatives and whilst both said they've not heard of the Dual Boiler being discontinued and replaced by the Dual Boiler, one told me there will be more stock in mid November, while the other checked and said due to supply issues, the stainless steel model would not be in stock until next April!
I know this is not advertised as being on sale, and the Dual Boiler has been cheaper ($999) as recently as a month ago in this deal (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/656080), however quite a number of people that placed an order missed out or had their orders cancelled due to inadequate stock levels. Please note this machine is not posted on Bing Lee's eBay store, so I don't think there is a way to get it through eBay and apply any coupons, plus I think I'd rather pay a bit more and pick it up from the store, then risk stock allocation issues and have them cancel the order on me.
I missed out on that deal and phoned around all the major retailers - JB, Myer, David Jones, Good Guys, Harvey Norman, Bing Lee and all said they do not have stock both in store or online, and that the item number could not be ordered in, most likely due to it being discontinued and replaced by the Dynamic Duo (Dual Boiler with the Smart Grinder Pro). Harvey Norman was the only store that had stock, but in black truffle (I prefer stainless steel) and it was $1,249.
Part of me was thinking that retailers may get more stock later this month and be on sale for Black Friday at similar levels to last year's Black Friday (~$850), but I felt the chance of that happening would be quite low and I didn't want to risk losing out altogether - it seems each time there is a deal on this machine, it gets sold out very very quickly. Good luck to those getting one.
