Same story for me. Bought a BLK summat-or-other, it was ok but I knew it wasn't going to last long or become part of the family. So after a week I did my research and went for a Pax 3 premium. It came with a big lid for small loads and I haven't looked back. I have started a topic about it here too as I couldn't find much mention of them in whole minute I spent looking. It is now a firm member of the family and I never go far without it. It does need regular cleaning every week but the design is so simple it really isn't a big deal.
Its the future!
