Subject: Storing a machine?
 

I have a six week old LaScalla Butterfly which I want to put away for about the next 6-8 weeks.  I love the machine but it's too high to fit on my kitchen counter under the cupboards so I plan to take it to my office.  And we're moving at the end of August (after 55 years in the same location - the stress is enormous!) so I won't be doing that until we're moved in.

I've ordered a new Giotto Premium (delivery next week) for home which WILL fit under my cupboards.

So my question is about what I should be doing to properly store the Butterfly.  I'm sure that even if I empty the water resorvoir, water will still be inside the machine.  Should I be trying to empty that somehow, or should I make sure it's completely full?

Any tips/suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Eldor
