I got mine in 2015. There are one or two annoyances, but overall it's a good system. The bottom plate seal hasn't caused me any problems so far. As long as you wet the basket, and slide it down on an angle it's ok.

A 2nd connection for the pump, so you can connect a HLT for sparging, would be a good addition.

Mine always overflows continusly throughout the mash. I can adjust the valve so it it does not overflow as much but it still does a bit. I dont see this a a problem, beer still turns out fine.
