Detailed Commentary

Here's how the Breville came into my kitchen. I had been using a machine I picked up in Italy for many, many years. This was long before Starbucks came to California. I had a to get a fairly large transformer to convert it from Italian voltage to 110v and got tired of it taking up so much space.

Anyway, the Breville looked nice so my wife bought it for me as a gift. I enjoy one latte every morning so the machine was ok. It doesn't put out enough heat for my liking and I found myself having to reheat my drink in the microwave before finishing it.

It's a cheap pretty machine and I doubt if I'll get it repaired.

Buying Experience

No pain as it was a gift traded for American Express points.
