Well, the Atomic website has a new home - . I retired a couple of months ago, and I made the reluctant decision to jettison the Atomic domain name. However, I have now reinstated the site as part of my personal website in recognition of the wonderful friendships I have formed through our shared interest in the world's best loved coffee machine. Unless my ISP complains, the new site should be around for the forseeable future.

As time allows, I will upgrade the site to conform to the new layout conventions, which will I hope make it clearer and easier to read. If you have any suggestions for new material you would like to see, please leave me a note.

Thanks for the interesting info on Atomic Coffee Machines.
I'm trying to sell a refurbished one here http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/141852493434 and your info makes me want to take down the listing and keep using it, but unfortunately we have to part ways.

Do you have any idea how much the sunburnt orange machines are worth compared to the plain silver models?

Typically an enamel finish will take about $50 off the value, compared with the silver finish, all other things being equal. This is partly because the enamel finish marks easily and is difficult to restore, and partly because the particular enamel colors used tend to suffer from changes in fashion preferences.

Fair Enough,

Thanks for your input.
I agree that fashions change.
But as a period piece - nothing says 1970's like orange!
On the flipside too, if the enamel is in relatively good condition.
Perhaps some may view a machine in good condition, as a rarer item.
I suppose running it on an electric hotplate helps.

Thanks again!
