Detailed Commentary

Is it a FANTASTIC coffee machine? YES IT IS....
The Millenium body really is stainless steel, it looks great in the kitchen and there's nothing "cheap" about it's construction.  The black steam & water knobs as well as the porta-filter handle are bakelite.  The cup-warmer puts out plenty of heat to keep your espresso & latte mugs nice & toasty warm.

All stainless steel body throughout makes this a showcase winner for many homes! Polished front, side and rear!
Full sized commercial handles are used on the thermically-balanced (a.k.a. Faema E61) grouphead for maximized temperature stability
Large drip tray for easy disposal and cleaning
Hidden small rubber feet to maintain stability throughout
Small gauge on front panel indicates boiler pressure
Ergonomically designed steam knob and water knob for easy access
Easy to use lever control for coffee like the old fashion way
Lever in up position engages pump to push water through grouphead
Passive cup warmer tray on top
Removable cover for refilling water reservoir (3 liters)
Water reservoir is easily removable for cleaning
Spring activated low water shut-off protects the machine when the water reservoir is near empty
Uni-directional steam wand with plastic safety grip has two hole steam tip that makes frothed milk in a snap!
Three way manual solenoid valve allows the quick removal of the portafilter handle once the espresso extraction is terminated (lever in down position completely)
Heavy-duty, nickeled brass boiler is 1.2 liters large
High wattage 1,400 watt heating element for continuous steaming power
Grouphead is designed for ground coffee
Pressure regulator maintains range of pressure in boiler
Powerful 52 watt vibration pump
Accessories: One cup filter basket, two cup filter basket, one portafilter handle with single spout, one portafilter handle with double spout, one blind filter insert for backflushing, one measuring scoop, and one plastic tamper
Body Finish: Stainless Steel
Power: 110 Volts 60 Hz
Warranty: One year parts and labor provided by 1st-line Equipment, LLC
Height 15 7/8"
Width back 9 3/4" --- widest part in center 12 7/8" --- front drip tray 9 1/2" Wands extended 17"
Depth w/o portafilter handle 17 1/2" --- w/ portafilter handle - 22"
Drip Tray width 8" --- depth 6 1/2"

Every morning start so nice after a great coffee with my Isomac Millenium coffee machine
