Fear not, the machine you bought can produce great espresso. Check out this thread, it helped me a lot when I was trying to get mine dialed in...

Great that folks refer to that thread :-)
BTW, I still have the Grouch!

Frothing Milk tips - here's a couple things to try
You can try blocking 2 of the 4 holes with toothpicks for a while.  The issue is that the 4 holes point outwards and it becomes difficult to create a vortex before the milk gets too hot.

Once you get used to the 2 hole trick you'll find how long it actually takes to get to the 160 deg temp.  It's like driving a stick shift car - you'll soon get the feel.  Now, what I actually do is keep the tip close to a wall - this effectively blocks 2 of the holes.  Easier to get a good vortex and somewhat slows down the heating process allowing you to expand that milk slowly and with more control.

cheers,
Caeffe
