Breaks after a year, starts leaking and malfunctioning.

Summary: Avanti W797 is wonderful basic machine as long as it works ok. I had made basic fixes "duct tape" to stop several leaks within first 2 months. After a year it had developed a major leak and ruined my kitchen floor. Avanti Customer service was unresponsive as other users have described. Would not recommend to anyone. $300 is a little too much for an appliance which lasts a year.
