Hi nuffing and welcome to CS. Bit of a sad first post you have there.
Presso are Sponsors, though you probably know that. Am sure that there are plenty of Presso users whove never experienced a problem.
Whether youve had your Presso for two days or two months, Im also sure theyd want to know about the issue. I seem to recall another user having had a similar problem, and you also mention having heard of it...though I thought this had been rectified by the manufacturer.
