I love mine too. This purchase was extremely well spent.No "plastic" here, It's all rubber and glass,,, and an incredibly solid platform to work on. It feels heavier than the stated 4 lbs, and sticks to the counter as if it were glued in place. It just oozes "quality" throughout. Gorgeous to look at, and a great working height. They'll have to pry my cold dead hands off this one.
