My husband bought these two trusty old ladies circa 1995, when he opened his guest house. No matter what, they just keep going. They’ve seamlessly moved from servicing guests, to coping with our family of 4 and now they’re still happily working for just my husband and me. They’ve definitely grown older more gracefully than we have. Best of all, they require minimal attention, with very few call-outs – so un-demanding! Gotta love my Speed Queens!
