It's really hard to see anything in those pics, but I've ordered 3 pieces of equipment from them and the buckets and conical have been in great condition. But things happen and sometimes defects slip...

I wouldn't compare the prodcuts from ss brewing and blichmann as the same as acer vs. apple. It's actually probably more comparable to The Galaxy vs. Iphone. I purchased the brewing bucket at $175 as...
