Rated number one in our consumer magazine, a few years back. Can be found often at Target/BigW for around the $150 mark, so $98 is a good price for a solid and good performer. (best online price I found secondsworld $115)
I have owned 2 of these for 9 years. I do use it a few times each day and then more when friends arrive, so it does have a lot of use. The current unit has been going for 4 years, so I bought this third unit as a backup.
