    Yep. It is a total conspiracy. I am resisting the temptation to see if I can fill it up!

    You can save yourself some money, noneed for the auto water bucket or clear door. Both the dickey and GQF recover temp very fast, so no harm in opening the door to fill the water pan.

    My vote is a DICKEY....quality and value.....customer service is 110% and you can quote me....
    Now I'm not saying there isn't something better out there...but IMO... for your $...it is far better than any GQF Cabinet...
    Good luck in your choice...

    The Dickey. And if you can afford it, spring for the clear view door. You won't regret it. Good luck.
