The old one was over 6 years old and definitely base grade. Yes, it was stainless, but the inside was yucky and plastic and rusty...and had a missing wheel! Not to mention, we had to turn our TV up extremely loud just to hear over the freight train like noises it liked to make!
We replaced it with a Kenmore from Sears. So happy with it...so far :)
Soooo pretty. And shiny. And NEW!
