    Why was the Eureka refurbished, and what exactly does that mean?

    Hi GB, I use the SG at work and am very happy with it at this point. Never tried or used the EMG but would expect its life span to be longer. Having said that the Breville does have a 2 year warranty.

    Im curious...did you feel this was a way of drawing attention to the website, prompting customer calls, then upselling?

    Doesnt appear the case from their comment Den.
    Previous posts also seem innocent enough.

    I expect its just a case of the website not being updated with "live" information. Pretty common really.

    When they have refurb grinders then thats the price.

    Nothing dodgy or misleading about that and as the owner of some great Espresso Italia equipment I can vouch for their customer service.

    Dont want to make a mountain out of a molehill. It was just that GB used the word, "misleading".

    Thought it may have been something to do with out of date webinfo and it does ask to call before placing an order to check.

    Me again... I do not want to make this a bigger issue either. I do not dispute there quality of customer service.

    The website maybe out of date, but at same time it did feel like an up sell.

    Each individual has his or her experiencing and I was just sharing mine
