Approximate Time Owned 3 months Rating Overall 5 Reliability Rating 5 Value for the Price 5 Usability Rating 5 Aesthetics Rating 5 Detailed Review. Top three most detailed reviews will get 50 bonus entries Purchased our Bar-Star for the aesthetics after having a Bar-T 2 group for several years in another location. Love how easy it was to customize your shot sizes on the panel. The machine has an energy saving option that seems to allow enough power to do everything we need. Haven't used it in full power mode yet! Only negative seems to be the way the drip pan sits in the machine with the grates. Snug in some spots and a gap that could allow liquid below the pan in another. We have assured the machine is leveled correctly, it appears to be an exterior cover issue. Other than that, it's a great machine that pull a consistently beautiful shot!
