If you had the opportunity to purchase either of these for home use (1-3 drinks a day) which would you choose? Either machine could be had for under $500, and both have been used non commercially for under a year.(and look "like new"
I am new so I'm hoping someone with more experience could help guide me one way or the other.
My opinion. I like the look of the T2 better, but you have to install a Kit to do ESE supposedly. I don't think I would have to with the Oscar. That is a factor. Anyone put an ESE pod in the single basket before? I'm thinking of trying it. Thanks in advance Jeremy

I love my Oscar but do not use pods either. You can convert an Oscar to pods but you need to change the screen and basket from what I understand. Why would you want to use pods anyway? Poor coffee by any measure.
Another thing, I REALLY like the plastic case on the Oscar! I have LOTS of stainless steel in my kitchen and cleaning and polishing it is a pain, the case on the Oscar is a quick wipe with a damp cloth and all is well, MUCH less effort to keep it looking good!

Well, I bought both!! I couldn't decide so I bought them both. I now have them set up in the kitchen, and I would like to give the wife a few days with them, and then she can decide which she likes better. I don't think the Oscar has a POD conversion kit, but the guy I bought it from said he used them? I just gave all mine away, so no worries anyways. Thanks for the input.
The Pasquini is the definate beauty champ, but I know thats not what its all about.
