One thing though, don't let your husband put it in the dishwasher!!! Mine did that and it rusts alot now. Only on the joints, not the cutting blades or crank. I have to keep on top of it and bought all new parts for it. I call it my Star of the show because everyone loves it. I think I am going to get a new one in April.
