Re: [Histonet] Sakura VIP 5

From:"Joe Nocito"

my VIP 5 is a year old and I had to replace the rotary valve twice (under
the warranty of course) and it still sounds pretty rough when pumping in
solutions. Also, you have to make sure that you secure the lid very well or
when the retort pressurizes, the lid pops open and processing stops.  Other
than that, it's okay, but I still like the old VIPs better.
