Bottom Line: Beatiful machine, exellent espresso, but regular steel base is prone to rust!  Spill tray area is rusty after 3 years of heavy use. Seriously  Rancilio????
Positive Product Points

Beautiful machine makes best espresso

Negative Product Points

After 3 years of heavy use, area under the spill tray started to rust!  Apparently, the whole base of the machine is made from regular steel, prone to rust!

Detailed Commentary

We have a large family and machine was in heavy use for 3 years.  Turned on every morning from 7 to noon making between 3 and 20 shots a day.  Overall held up very well, and I would give nothing but the glowing review if it was not for the peeling paint and rust under the spill tray.  Apparently, machine is not really stainless.  Most of the side panels are stainless, but the actual base of the machine is regular steel.   Black painted areas of the machine are all regular steel, prone to rust!  In the diagram below, part 19 is regular steel frame:

I am considering replacing the frame, but the only place I could find it listed is on below for $85!
