Breville Grind Control Coffee Maker

Pay close attention to the 6 month warranty. Ours stopped working after 8 months and the warranty had expired. My fault for not looking closer at the abbreviated warranty due to it being refurbished.

I was about to buy this and saw the 6-month warranty. The new machine has a 1-year warranty. If it has been thoroughly re-furbished, why will Breville not stand behind their product the same as if it was new? Given a lot of people complaining that their machines stopped working between 6-12 months, I will not buy this now, simply due to the truncated warranty.

How hard is it to clean? Doesn’t steam from the brewer end up in the grinder and cause the left over grounds to cake?
