Read the Fine Print

Don't even look at that seductive touch-pad-temperature-probe-microwave-option-three-way-stove-and-bottle-washer without first reading the instructions. If you find yourself unfolding a sheet of paper more delicate than a 17th-century map, with type so small you can't read the words after "CAUTION," or you find you are lost in the programming instructions on page 43 of the owner's manual—in Spanish—keep looking. This is not your perfect appliance.
