We have owned and used 5 or 6 of these Better Pack 333's for many decades. We use all of them every day, all day. They last forever and we have gotten our money's worth out of these many times over. Great product!

We purchased this unit to replace a unit we have used for more years than anyone can remember. Never had a serious problem with the old unit, except that it had gotten old. It is a reliable product, easy to use and maintain.
