Re: help me make my mya decision !
Stay away from the mini orb. They aren't very sturdy, top heavy, and will easily topple over due to any pull on the hose.
The base is crappy plastic- (not like their acrylic bases) and the grommet sucks.
I'd go w/ the QT - I like mine for traveling or maybe the new gelato but i've never tried that one.
