    No, it's not spillproof.

    And there are sensors inside the machine to detect the presence of liquid.

    No, they're physical indicators that change color after being exposed to liquid. You'd have to open up the machine to see them.

    I know from first hand experience it is not spill proof. It cost me a pretty penny to get repaired too.
