This information is for customers who have purchased
or thinking of purchasing second hand (used) machines of Toa products.

A word of caution before purchasing second hand (used) machines.

The compact gyoza making machine / dumpling machine "Gyoza Innovation" is custom made to customer requirements and specifications. Therefore, customers who purchase second hand (used)  machines from third party are often troubled by the differences in the dumplings sizes etc, resulting in usage difficulties. The following are some of the problems often encountered in such a case.
  • The size of the dumpling made by the second hand (used) machine may be different from that desired by the customer.
  • The frequency (hertz) may be different from that in your area. This may result in malfunction of the machine.
  • Second hand (used) machine may not have all the required components.
  • Users of second hand (used) machines have not received initial usage training and instructions. They may not know the proper procedure of handling the machine.
  • The machine may be broken and needs repair.

The problem arising from differences in the size of the dumplings from the size desired by the new user is quite frequent, because the machine is initially tailor made to the first customer's preferences.
It is possible to change the size of the dumplings (gram weight) but as this requires many components to be replaced, it tends to become rather expensive.
Please take note of the above points before purchasing second hand (used) machines.
  • To change the size of the dumplings, it costs about 300,000 JPY to 500,000 JPY.
