I love my Peter Pugger.  My first one lasted 20 years but after heavy porcelain use I needed to bite the bullet and by a stainless steel one. I only use porcelain. So I’m happily on my second Peter Pugger.  I’d look at the price differential between stainless and non stainless and consider the fact that the resale value of the stainless would certainly be higher.  Just my 2 cents worth

It is still being used although with repairs to the plunger. The second is the Bluebird Powerstar which I bought in 1992. The barrel is an aluminum alloy and the auger is stainless. I bought it because Of it’s extrusion capability. In the time I have used it I have had one repair. The electric switch went bad. A minor repair that a friend did for me. I would highly recommend this machine. If you can find it used all the better.
