RE: VIP-5 Owners
I have had a VIP for many years and thank goodness have had no problems. I
am just wondering how often you do the hot water rinse on your machine. We
do ours once a week and have great success. It seems to keep the containers
clean and the machine working well.
Hope that this helps:-)
