Updated Compak K3 Touch...
With the timer in a far more realistic location... and not before time!
Thanks for the photos. Do you know when this model will be released ? I'm looking at getting the current model, but I may be better off waiting.
It is surprising that it has taken so long to change the location of the timer. In my view there are some quirky design ideas put into the K3 touch that should have been sorted out prior to production. I don't see how putting access to the timer under the machine was ever a good idea and I don't think I have adjusted mine since I got it. I tend just to use the touch (timed) function to fill the basket up most of the way and then use the grind on demand feature to adjust the final quantity.
The markings around the bean hopper are also an odd design function. With mine there is no fixed reference point on the grinder body to align the markings around the bean hopper with. Obviously there are easy enough work arounds (such as a dob of white out) however it just seems strange that they would go to the trouble of moulding the markings and then not have a fixed reference. I would have thought it would have been picked up and corrected fairly quickly - unless I am completely missing something (which will make me look the fool).
It should be said I have no problem with the quality of the grinder - just a little confused at some of the non-essential design ideas.
Just out of interest are there power switches on both sides or are grinders 1 and 2/3 different?
Also is the little bit of metal on the tongue new as well?
any eta for this model???
Yes- we are receiving some silver ones tomorrow.
