Summary: Normally this type of machine comes with 1 double cup filter and handle for the filter and 1 single cup filter and holder for the filter. The seller failed to mention they did not have the double cup filter and holder so now I am stuck with it,I was able to purchase a double cup filter but no holder...
Summary: This is a very disappointing machine. I have owned 3 espresso machines & this one makes the weakest espresso of all. The company did not include the 1 cup filter when I bought it new. There was conflicting advice from DeLonghi Customer Service about the ground of the coffee..
Summary: This machine is so much better than my Mr. Coffee steam espresso maker. If you're going to buy an espresso maker, make sure it's pump driven. I can make froth so thick that it looks like beaten egg whites! The steam wand is so easy to clean too because it is plastic.
Summary: I bought this espresso machine a few weeks ago and I must say I am impressed. The water container in the back when filled to the max line lasted about a week without refilling it. The Auto Off function is great.
Summary: I have owned this machine since 3/'04 (!)and thought about getting a new model w/coffee maker. After shopping for a new machine and reading the reviews on this one, I must add my 2 cents. I have figured out how to avoid problems others have had with it and I am very happy with mine.
Tried twice and it broke down in less than 1 month!!!

Summary: This machine makes a great cappuccino. I was very happy at first making several cups a day... Until it blew up (literally, almost) and stopped making steam. I tried again (Seeing that half the reviews were good and half were bad I figured I'd try my luck)... What a surprise...
