Also wet pucks noted earlier are a non-issue as far as taste is concerned.

I have determined that asking my wife if I can open it 3+ weeks before Christmas in order to determine if it generates a burning smell is not a winning strategy given the price point :D

I'll just play dumb on 12/25. Shouldn't be too difficult.

Unless you have blue smoke rolling out the top, it is a pretty normal thing. These are also fresh off the floor so they have had no warehouse time to slowly out gas. Personally would not worry about it for a week. Now if there is blue smoke rolling out, then you have a problem.
Well I'll let everyone know what LM techs say saturday. For what it's worth, LM's rep told me my description was not normal and I was urged not to turn the machine back on.

Watching this thread eagerly as I'm trying to decide if I should move on from my Barista Touch. I want something plumbable and more manual, slightly smaller would be nice, and no integrated grinder. As I mentioned in the other thread I think I'm down to this or the Bianca V3, both roughly in the same price ballpark but you trade flow control for some useful features like the auto wake, faster warm up and for me a usable top shelf while under cabinet.

Can any owner confirm that if this is plumbed you can enable preinfusion? This seemed possible via the app on Lance's review but of course he didn't test it and I wondered if this might be an app holdover from another model as it's not explicitly mentioned on the specs as far as I can see. I know it does pre-brew either way but more interested in the preinfusion at line pressure.

Also would be interested to confirm dimensions, is the 12" wide measured at the base or the flared top?

Yes please let us know. There is certainly a chance that it's "normal" in the sense that it's not harmful and will dissipate on its own. But it's definitely worth being careful and doing the right investigation.

Always trust the experts. I have had my share of 'stink up the house' equipment. Everyone has a different sensitivity to aromas and tastes. Be interesting to hear what they find.

Thanks for the measurements.

Well I went ahead and pulled the trigger. I must be crazy because I went for the red! I'm just going to assume that the burning smell thing will be explored well within the next week or two, well before mine ships.
