Hi, I'm new here signed up because of this thread. I purchased an Ardent Lift. My problem is/was that my lift won't go off after 1hour 15min. I saw that some people had the same problem or is it a problem? I manually turn mine off at 1Hr 30 to a golden brown color ,2nd attempt. Gavmar did your unit go off at 1hr 47min or did you shut it off, also was it burnt tasting at all, at that color? Does anyone else have there unit run longer? I just don't want to leave it and have it burn my meds. I read thru this thread way back before I made my purchase and I believe it was mentioned before, but the time was 90min shut off and that's why I chose that time to stop my unit. You guys have a lot more time with your units than I do and seem cool so I decided to post. By the way I sent a email to Shanel, waiting for a response. As far a smell mine doesn't smell more than the lid smell, my lid is oversized and I'm grateful for the lack of bud smell while its working. I really love this thing just want to know the time thing and will it shut its self off.
