Good entry level machine at great price only hampered by very small drip tray
Positive Product Points
Capable of producing good espresso lots of steam good price for Gaggia internals 58mm portafilter
Negative Product Points
very small drip tray flimsy plastic construction no 3 way valve
Bought this machine off ebay for my office as a cheap backup. machine wasn't double boxed very well and developed cracks on both side in transit-plastic case. Machine is still usabe but a little flimsy due to the cracks. Machine heats up quickly and develops lots of steam with a wand that can be used without the included panarello frother attachment. 58mm portafilter like all gaggias but this one has plastic spouts. double and single baskets. Very small drip tray which is a bit of a joke-not really usable at all and the steel cover does not stay in place very well. A capable machine and probably a good starter-especially at the price I paid but will leave you wanting more convience. Smallish water reservoir.
bought off ebay and cracked in shipping but seller was accommodating (gave discount)
