Stunning, but Pavoni should have figured out the finishing touches by now (since 1961)
Positive Product Points
Design, functionality, Did I mention design?
Negative Product Points
Base is too lightweight, causing tipping when raising handle, and moving when inserting filter.
Mine cost 350 UK pounds, Direct from La Pavoni.
From the first time I used it, it‘s been consistently excellent. The only thing I don‘t like is the fact that it doesn‘t sit still on the worktop when you raise the handle or insert the filter. The base isn‘t heavy enough. (Yes my water tank is full!).
I will insert a screw from under the drip tray straight down and through the worktop. That should ‘fix‘ it!
The milk steaming pipe should stick out away from the machine a bit more, and be perhaps a little longer. The auto frother is a bit shavingfoam-like.
I didn‘t like the rosewood handles (endangered species of tree, duh!) so I went for plastic. I do not like plastic. I think for this price, it should at least not show seams from the mould in it. It‘s very solid and heavy plastic though.
