Detailed Commentary

The Krups #863 is a nice machine at a reasonable price--its definately a step up from most home machines Ive seen.  It heats up in under 30 seconds and holds volumes of water.  The pressure is good and lots of steam on demand.  After over 4 years of daily use, this machine has endured no mechanical problems.  I do wish that more of the machine was made of stainless steel, but overall a very solid feel.  I use this machine daily and get a good consistent cup everytime.  The 863 is easy to use and seems as though it will last quite a long time with normal upkeep.
