I've had mine for several years now and have not experienced any malfunctions. The metal parts have not "Rusted", like some other brands. The tray is not a problem - since KitchenAid makes a larger capacity tray, that attaches to the grinder - for those people who like to put 10 gallons of water in a 5 gallon bucket.
The pusher does "Leak" - Soft/liquid foods will turn into mush if you push them too hard. The pusher does not have an air-tight seal.... by design. If it had a tight seal, you would not be able to push the tool in - Air Lock.
My wife loves it! She makes Mexican Tamales and it's a real time saver.

We purchased the pan last year and love the results. It makes great Spanish Omelettes! The two pans are also very convenient, when you need to sauté small amounts of vegetables or only cooking for two people
Although the product is not "Idiot Proof ", it does perform well. Due to the shallow depth of the pans and the protruding rivets, the omelette does stick to them. The design team should have spent more time developing this product. I would have installed counter-sunk rivets and coated them with the same non-stick material. (That would probably cost extra).
Overall, its an excellent product, with the exception on the protruding rivets. I would highly recommend it to all my friends.
BTW - I worked around the sticky situation - by brushig the rivets with oil (vegetable or Olive).
