  2. Size: Slightly larger and bulkier, requiring more space, but its benefits far outweigh this minor inconvenience.

Space Considerations

To ensure that your PerfectDraft machine works properly and lasts a long time, it's important to leave at least 10 cm of space around the machine. This means that you should avoid placing the machine too close to walls, other appliances, or other objects that might obstruct the airflow. By leaving a minimum of 10 cm space around the machine, you'll allow for proper ventilation and prevent the machine from overheating.

In addition to leaving 10 cm of space around the machine, you should also make sure that the area around the machine is clean and free of dust and debris. This will help to prevent any blockages in the air intake or exhaust vents, which could cause the machine to overheat or malfunction.
