The machine itself has garnered near-universal praise on Amazon and is currently sitting at a 4.8-star rating after more than 24,000 user reviews. One reviewer was even worried this machine might threaten his marriage, saying his wife, “…spends all her time with it and when she's not using it, she's talking about it.”
