Champions don't cook, lol
I can see more compelling reasons to consider the Samson than heat generation. The only time the Champion got at all hot on me was with real stringy vegetables. Even then I doubt if it ever approached cooking temperatures. Everything, regardless, seemed as raw as could be. :cool:
Nice to know, though, that the Samson seems to have just as good a warranty.
What I'd like to know is why the Champion weighs nearly twice as much?
Having worked in home electronics & appliances 25 years, I have a pretty good idea why.
If you want one that never quits, and your needs are simple, get the Champion.
If you need versatility and still want a decent machine, get the Samson.
If you care about the difference between metal & plastic, (all that weight difference isn't for nothing) and you want quality over quantity...?
