Many people have reported that the metallic paint is chipping and peeling off around the opening of the machine where the plates are inserted. This results in pushing the paint compound into the machine. Worst case it could cause overhead and a fire. I am returning mine ASAP and expect a full refund. Including shipping.


I’m sorry to see this… I went ahead and took care of your EZ return label. You will not be charged for the postage.

I want to let you know that this was a special edition Gemini only sold at HSN. there are no reviews on it yet, as customers are just receiving their orders.



  1. Oh my I hadnt given the fire risk a thought , I put tape on mine to re use when flipping between dies , I wonder if this would pull off the crappy coating
