The Chef and I thought we should post this as if this is the auto version it is a great price. The Chef based on the model number in the listing shows Quartz but all other info pointing to Auto. If indeed it is an auto $453 is a steal of a deal but our money is on a incorrect listing and it is probably a quartz. If someone wants to try it out let us know how it works out but our bet is ShopNBC has it listed incorrectly.

***Update*** The Chef verified no auto models available with this new hand configuation so this must be a quartz.

The hands are different on the two.

Maybe the shop has the wrong model number.

I don't trust or take anything for granted.

Especially after the Amazon Glycine deal. :%

I am on the phone with ShopNBC Customer Service right now. The woman I am speaking with says that it shows as a Quartz on their end when an order is placed BUT the listing probably incorrect. She said she is going to notify management and tech support to make the change.

GREAT CATCH guys.

As noted above, I called shopnbc at 3:48pm EST this afternoon. I spoke to a customer service rep/manager who said she would immediately inform management and the web tech people to fix the incorrect listing and remove the automatic info. Now almost 3 hours later the listing is still the same -
