      Jennie I have had the problem a little with the Chef’s Choice. I bang it on the counter – but that is a good suggestion, I will pass on. Thrive is aware that the printing on the labels is hard to read and is making some adjustments. They print the labels in big runs, so they use those up then we’ll see the new ones.
