Excellent first unit for anyone who is looking hassle free espresso making.
Positive Product Points
Virtually "idiot proof". Easy to clean and do day to day maintenance. Priced very reasonably. Instant switch from steam to brew/ water.
Negative Product Points
Not crazy about the selector dials
This was my first jump from an Illy pod machine. I wanted the simplicity of operation of a "superautomatic" and Saeco has a decent reputation with my friends. Took about 5 minutes to set up. The espresso is of average-good quality. I especially like the fact that I can steam/ brew/ dispense water with no wait between functions.
