Jesse Robinson (quality: 7.1) 04.09.2004 Rating: 2.8
Bottom Line: Get something designed in the last ten years, at least.  Doesn't live up to its reputation.
Simon M (quality: 2.2) 07.08.2005 Rating: 2.8
Bottom Line: Buy an all metal machine with substantial construction, stay away from this plastic wannabe!
Len Caplan (quality: 4.8) 09.16.2003 Rating: 3.4
Bottom Line: Great machine if you can find an older model around...if not check out the competition or spring for the extra bucks and buy a Classic or a Sylvia.
Mike Stan (quality: 3.5) 09.16.2003 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: Left behind by the competition.
Thing One (quality: 3.0) 01.14.2005 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: Great inner works, but terrible outer shell.  Avoid this unit.  The Gaggia Classic is worth the extra $100
Magnus Stensson (quality: 6.2) 01.11.2005 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: Had the power button been of better quality I'd have liked the Baby to be my friend for many years to come, as it makes good espresso and gives you control of the process.
Nadav Caine (quality: 9.3) 04.12.2004 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Light years ahead of anything in $250 range, but not a conversation piece.

Product Reviewed: Baby Dose
Bottom Line: A good entry level machine that will thrill the new comer and satisfy seasoned veterans with a few minor modifications.
Andy Panda 03.03.2012 Rating: 7.0
Product Reviewed: Baby (2003 version)
Bottom Line: Great espresso, quality components, awkward ergos
Niall Smyth (quality: 3.7) 03.05.2005 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: this machine is a legend for a reason
Brad Franks (quality: 8.0) 11.29.2003 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Great espresso if you can figure out and live with the simple ideosyncracies, doesn't meet quality for price.
Alan Magill (quality: 6.5) 10.27.2004 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Makes a great espresso. As a first espresso machine, the Baby will do a good job of convincing you that you spent your money wisely.

Andrew King (quality: 8.5) 03.27.2003 Rating: 8.6

Bottom Line: I like my Gaggia Baby, it is very well built, easy to use and makes a good cup of espresso for a entire level home machine

Jeremy N 07.24.2008 Rating: 8.8
Product Reviewed: Baby Class (Stainless)
Bottom Line: Produced consistently very good shots with just a little practice, right method & good grind -- maybe not the machine for those on a quest for a godshot, but for those who value consistent quality, ease-of-use and quick cleanup this is for you.
Jim Cummer (quality: 5.9) 02.13.2000 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: For $300, your espresso problems are over.
Owen O'Neill (quality: 6.2) 04.16.2002 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Great value for the money - learn the frothing idiosyncrasies and have fun!
Colin Newell (quality: 4.0) 07.05.2001 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: This is one of the best espresso machine values for under $500
