    This looks pretty cool, I look forward to your review!

    Did you get it any cheaper than the $150 the web site lists?

    And note that the web site is sold out. No surprise there if it works as advertised.

    Thanks for the interests in my review .. I can understand those who think it is over priced and too small .. I did manage to push the machine to its fullest capacity and I am impressed .. The review will be posted below momentarily .

    And yes Help , I did get a discount on the price at the local Hydro Store .. Paid less than 150 with tax and I just might buy another one for what its worth ..

    Ok here is my quick review on the Magical Butter Machine . I ll keep it short as possible ..


    Over all Impression : High Quality and it works with ease 4 Stars for me .. I decided to use boiling water to wash the left overs and make it easier to strain using a a bubble bag ..

    I maxed the machine out with 2.5 lbs of butter and close to 50 grams .. Next time I will make Black Out Butter consisting of 4 ounces to one pound of butter ..

    This machine is a nice addition to my kitchen , it even makes milkshakes and cleans itself .. I ran just one run this time and allowed the machine to do its thing in two hours .. I even had time to make a small batch of Oil for a patient .. Not bad , not bad ..

    Efficiency all the way with this machine , I didnt even break the buds up , it has a grind feature for pre blending if need be .

    Prof,
    A couple of questions. What temp does the machine heat the butter to or does it let you control the temp like a Sous Vide? Can you freeze the container/whole unit and do two or more heat/freeze cycles without removing the butter?

    edit: One more question, can you remove and use the machine without the blade assembly? I'm thinking more about the idea of using it as a small Sous Vide with vacuum sealed bags.
    Thx

    I just purchased this machine, directly from the website (disappointed to hear that it CAN be purchased for less than $150, but oh well...)

    Anyway, used it for the first time to make canna-oil, and it seems absolutely fantastic! No pregrinding necessary whatsoever, BEAUTIFUL final product, and with the clean-up setting, it simply could not have been any easier. I'm an MMJ patient and am new to medibles, but I am never satisfied with what I've been getting in the stores in the Seattle area, hence my eagerness to start experimenting for myself. With last night's oil I used a simple, store-bought cake mix, and made some cupcakes that are really helping me. I had rotator cuff surgery a week and a day ago, and have been having terrible muscle spasms on my opposite side, and since making my little cakes, I am virtually pain/spasm-free, but not all loaded - perfect. The machine doesn't come with a lot of direction, and they almost compulsively avoid referring to the machine being used for anything other than LEGAL herb, which limits their ability to answer specific, cannabis-related questions. I feel I will have to do some experimenting to get the most out of it. That being said, it's potential seems ENORMOUS!! I am thrilled, and really looking forward to working with it some more. Could post additional if any others are interested...?
    - Cheers to all!

    Hello,
    I have this machine, (just posted to the general thread a few moments ago). In answer to your question, the unit has a carafe piece and a "head" piece. The "head" to the unit has the grinder and electronics, etc., and will not separate so that you could do sous vide in it - no way. Sorry, but at least now your know!!

    Thanks MzMyst...I was trying to justify spending the $$. Good luck with your new machine. :)

    I have this machine and I think it's great. My butter is much stronger than my crockpot method which I used for years. Making butter was a chore now it's easy. I was impressed cleaning cycle got it most of the way clean. Overall very pleased with my purchase and would buy it again.
