The entire housing, including the stand, on this product is PLASTIC. The description indicates that the 'color' is Stainless Steel, and the "Materials" descriptors were 'Metal, ABS'. OK, so I didn't know that ABS is a 'Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)', is a 'common thermoplastic. If the description had simply said 'plastic', I never would have made the purchase. I'm pretty irritated that I have to loose the return shipping fee simply because the product description was not straightforward.
Since he was a child, my husband has loved malteds so this was a perfect gift for him. The machine is simple to use, and works exactly as expected. Cleanup is easy... just add water and a little soap to the container, turn it on for a second or two and you're done. It feels a little lightweight, not like the old fashioned ones, and I would have liked them to include a few recipes but we're thoroughly enjoying it despite these minor things.
