    WARNING - SCHEISTERS

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Just spotted in the bay of evil,

    Someone is advertising a Rancilio Lucy as a
    COMMERCIAL
    PROFESSIONAL

    machine, that cost $2000.00 TO BUY NEW.


    Someone else advertising Breville 800 series macghines also as
    COMMERCIAL.

    All of this is WRONG and MISLEADING to potential buyers with no experience.

    In the case of the Lucy, it could result in uninformed buyers bidding higher than would otherwise be the case.

    Fraud? Dishonest? Criminal?


    Go into that place with your eyes open.

    Sunbeam Instruction Book:

    The Sunbeam Café Series® delivers quality,
    style and superior performance capturing
    the essence of the commercial kitchen.
    Inspired by heavy-duty equipment found in
    restaurants, cafés and bars, the Sunbeam
    Café Series® is built to last. It brings together
    a range of appliances designed to expertly
    create authentic café food and beverages at
    home.


    The twin pumps enables the coffee maker to deliver
    instant steam for texturing milk and at the
    same time produce a serve of espresso just
    like a commercial machine.


    The commercial 360° ball joint allows the steam
    wand to be moved into the ideal position.

    Commercial size group head
    Commercial size group handle
    The group head, group handle and filters are
    designed to commercial specifications using
    brass and stainless steel components.

    Hot water wand
    Dispenses a controlled flow of hot water. For
    ease of use the wand has a commercial 360°
    ball joint.
    3 litre water


    True to commercial use, the unique
    TPTT™ System features twin pumps and
    twin thermoblocks, this allows the coffee
    maker to texture milk and pour an espresso
    simultaneously.


    The Standard Filter Baskets (one and two
    cup) are the same specification as used with
    commercial espresso machines


    Note: If you don’t have a grinder and have
    your coffee beans ground for you, then you
    must request that the coffee is ground very
    fine, the same fineness that would be used
    on a commercial espresso machine.


    The Anti-Calc water filter fitted inside the
    3 litre water reservoir has a 12 month life
    for domestic use and a 3 month life for
    commercial use.


    If using the Cafe Series® Espresso
    Machine for commercial use this
    pump Guarantee is limited to 12
    months from the date of purchase.



    Everything italicised above is cut and pasted from the book.

    A lot of the use of the word "commercial" is like "inspired by" examples however as you go further into the book it becomes more blatantly the normally accepted definition, which to us is a lie.


    For goodness sake, the warranty states the commercial use terms, so they fully expect it to be used as such. * :o


    So is all the blame that of the evilbay sellers or are they getting that crap from somewhere else?

    TG... Did you not know..

    Years of experience the ability to read with an open mind and actual hands on means nothing...

    1: Google found 1 page / 1 reference = Thus it must be true :-X

    2: Non contactable snake oils sales; on line has it in print = Thus it must be true :-X

    3: Commercial = 5 years and I never have to service it ;D :D ;)

    4: The changes in Warranty as to Commercial and non commercial use says heaps.... = Thus read between the lines..

    PS... If ya can not read between teh lines or with an open mind - Have I got a deal for you ;D Let me know what ya want and I can get it :o
