perhaps that is how the make manuka honey, the rust must make the honey a rich golden brown colour like 20+ manuka honey is

Everything in NZ is rusty as its rains most days on North Island and is humid most of the year, My brother in cleveden NZ collects enough rain off his roof to provide water for all his family ( 4 kids) and his swimming pool

So that makes it minus £50... I walked the dogs and pondered the matter, and thought this.

If the inside is clean and it is used for friends only and family then a few bob is good.

However if one is thinking that such a machine is good for sales........think AGAIN... it's illegal.

Hi,

This can not be used if you are going to sell your honey. If you are going to eat it all yourself then you can decide if you are happy for your food to be in close contact with a rusty tin.

To be fair, the advert does suggest it is beyond practical use by suggesting it could be a nice museum peice or film prop and so on.
