Product Tops Them All
Some idiot wrote a bad review on this machine. Maybe he should come on down to Florida and watch this 5500 run the entire house and my neighbor's.

Issue Being Corrected
This is a follow up to my previous 1 star review. Cat contacted me and explained why the gfci's are tripping while running the refrigerator/freezer and they are taking the necessary steps to rectify the issue. I'm sure I'll be satisfied with the product once this issue is resolved.
Pros: Easy To Use
