  1. OK. I think that this thread is now getting silly and childish. I will try to delete it ...
  2. All according to one's taste. I think the multi-coloured handles etc are extremely ugly and I would not give one house room! Just my personal opinion!
  3. I have just heard back from Niche. They are sending me a new piece of wood! David
  4. Oh OK. No thanks ... I think I will stick with oak -- even if it is cracked!
  5. I do not recall any care instructions being in the box but I will check. I have treated it with butchers block wax now which is food-safe and hope it will not get worse. It is only cosmetic and has no effect on function - but may well devalue the grinder if and when I move it on! David
  6. Perhaps I should only make coffee in the garage then! It's interesting that none of my oak furniture has cracked although the rooms in which it is placed are all heated! I suspect a latent crack was present when the wood was machined. It's not a big deal, I wasn't bad-mouthing Niche. I was merely asking if anyone else had experienced the issue.
  7. Yes, but not on the kitchen and, as I noted in my original post, the grinder is away from any heat source and at least eighteen inches from the heat of my espresso machine. Looking at it, I suspect the crack starts from a hole drilled in the wood where it attaches yo the body of the grinder. David
  8. I have emailed them and sent the photo. We will see what they say ... David
  9. Has anyone else experienced cracking of the wooden 'deck' of their Niche grinder? Mine is away from heat in a dry corner of the kitchen and at least eighteen inches away from my espresso machine. Notwithstanding that, I have noticed a crack at the back. I have now treated the whole wooden area with butchers block wax but the crack remains. I will send the photo to the manufacturer (when I can find an email address!) but wondered whether anyone else had experienced the same or a similar issue. David
  10. Are you sure that the warranty is transferrable? That is not how I read the warranty documentation on mine! Thanks, David
  11. If you change your mind about collection or local delivery only, then I am interested in buying. Do you have the original shipping box? I will sending this machine to my 'other' house in Harare so I need to be able to protect it during shipping! Thanks! David
  12. Mahlgut tamper now on its way so this thread can be archived ....
  13. Hi Roger! Sorry for the delay ... I was away for a couple of days! I am happy with £120 delivered .. although delivery will be costly because of the weight. I have got the thing out and thought I ought to warn you that it is 58.4mm ... that may be oversize for your needs. Please confirm that the size is OK and we can go to PM to sort out the arrangements. David
