Horrible machine for the $150 price it carries. More water than steam comes out of the steaming pipe.
Positive Product Points
If all you want is a machine to make a quick cup of espresso then this one would be fine but you can get that in machines for 1/3 the price.
Negative Product Points
I tried to steam some milk and ended up with so much water pumped into the milk I had to throw it out.
I owned the machine for one day and am returning it. It has to be one of the worst espresso machines I have ever owned! I have had much better performance out of machines at 1/3 the cost of this one. Not worh the $150 price tag it carries especially if it can't steam a pitcher of milk without diluting to the point of white water. Although it has a clean look adn can make a cup of espresso quickly it is worhtless to me if it cna't steam milk. Why does it pump so much water into the milk? I have had machines in the past that would quickly steam a pitcher of milk without adding large amounts of water. This machine added 2.5 oz. of water to 10 oz. of milk and took forever to heat it to 160 degrees.
