Bought one at costco in long island, opened it, tons of scratches all over the openings on base, looks like it was put together by a 7 year old, shards of plastic on circular bottom all jagged sticking out..the parts look so incredibly subpar and poor quality, I was shocked at a $500 machine..thought it was a fluke maybe...returned it, and bought another couple days ago at another costco, just opened it, same thing pretty much, except scratches all on front of base bottom, and the same scracthed looking areas all near openings, and rubber pieces sticking out near dial---wow, obviously not a fluke---this is made in the USA??? anyone notice this on their machines...look on the sides and bottom...I'm not keeping this one either...paid $500 for a machine, I'm not keeping something covered in scratches, and gouges...tried calling company but long wait there an alternative for whole food juices????
