Ken L. (quality: 7.7) 02.02.2008 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Great machine for the price. Overall I would buy this again, but would like to see a longer and typical steam wand.

Bottom Line: The PL041TQE is one of the top in it's class and has really improved on the complaints of the previous models in the PL041 line. Great value.

Bottom Line: I am very pleased with the Le'lit.
Matthew Pecsok (quality: 10.0) 10.17.2013 Rating: 8.2

Joshua Boni (quality: 10.0) 01.06.2015 Rating: 8.0

Jolene Litman (quality: 4.7) 07.20.2008 Rating: 6.6
Bottom Line: Good value for the features and aesthetically pleasing.
Dave Rossi (quality: 1.5) 09.24.2011 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: Brass boiler, very nice. Purist wand, if that's what you want. But just because this thing is made in Italy, don't be fooled, esp. if you're a consumer.
