Bottom Line: A machine which will produce coffee as good as you expect in a top cafe (and often don't get).
Barry Tookas (quality: 6.8) 04.04.2006 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: If you want a home machine that can produce professional results easily and don't mind the plastic cover, this is the machine to get.
Matt Nikkel (quality: 8.9) 12.21.2005 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Great machine.  It performs great under pressure, and produces a great product.

Bottom Line: Oscar produces a great shot and steams like a champ
Richard Strafehl (quality: 6.5) 01.29.2009 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Buy it.  I might eventually upgrade to a bright shiny machine in the future, but I'll keep this for the office.  All the staff keep asking when I'll be upgrading ;-)
Charles Burd (quality: 7.0) 03.08.2007 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: excellent shots, no frills, low cost
Robert Harmon (quality: 4.4) 08.26.2006 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Can a Nuova Simonelli Oscar stand up to a tough, side-by-side comparison test with other consumer & professional machines? Come see how it did.
Fred Collins (quality: 6.9) 11.24.2004 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Perfect crema, perfect micro foam, has worked well for over 2 years - a serious machine to consider
Lisa Swehla (quality: 9.0) 11.16.2007 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: terrific HX performer under a plastic hood
Gregory Irwin (quality: 8.3) 07.15.2006 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: It's modest on the counter, it makes excellent espresso, it steams milk to a fine microfoam, it's solid and reliable.
Larry OConnor (quality: 7.0) 02.28.2007 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: If this machine is in your budget, or you can find a refurb, it is a great value for anyone.
Rob B (quality: 9.0) 04.10.2009 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Love the machine, as I grow it only shows me more of what it is capable of, would happily buy over and over.
Scott Greene (quality: 8.0) 06.04.2014 Rating: 7.8

Helen Jensen 09.11.2013 Rating: 7.2

Andrea Karsh (quality: 9.0) 08.21.2014 Rating: 3.4
Bottom Line: I will probably toss this machine as it appears it cannot be fixed without a huge shipping cost. I would not buy it again.
