Detailed Commentary

First I would like to say this was a step up from my krups LOL... Then I thought since it was a pump driven model it would be more powerful not so if you grind it too fine I had problems with it. and then there is this stupid hole in the bottom so if you leak got on the counter!  Well after 1 year of use it finally broke so Im pissed now.  Overall all I would say average at best the frother was okay but not strong enough to make the micro bubbles that I like for lattes.  And you have to dial it in I was using a burr Grinder to the right grind or you have problems.... I think I finally have to go with a Gaggia I got this because the price was a plus but finally it broke....
