    This is why plastic inserts in your handle are bad...

    I picked up an otherwise clean and tidy coffee machine on eBay and the first thing I did was inspect the components and flush some descaler through.

    Here's what I found when I removed the plastic insert from the handle.

    I wonder if the taste was why they sold the machine?

    That looks worse than the inside of my shower screen when I took it out and that had about 10 holes the water could get through...

    Are the sides of that handle chipped as well?
