Premature failure

Richard M., Newegg
21 August 2014
  • Summary: Used this espresso maker on a daily basis for the past year and a half - but this morning it failed to heat the water. As of yesterday I would have given it a very high rating (4-5), but 1 1/2 years of life is just ridiculous. Naturally it has a 1 year warranty...
  • Pros: Was great for the price (while it worked)
  • Cons: Premature failure frother is useless

Hate it.

Ferit Eren Beskardes "e'eN", Amazon

  • Summary: I totally hate it. This can not do any espresso by any chance. You can use it for filter coffee only. Does not make any pressure at all to make espresso, or cappuccino! Don't buy, spend a few dollars more and buy the more expensive one.

Tip: Open frother until hissing, then close & extraction starts 18-24 sec.

  • Summary: Pros: Portafilter has a flip tap to hold filter in so you don't pull the filter out after tamping. Easy cleanup. Cons: Doesn't come with tamper. Only one button operation. Milk frother too short. Details: Machine sprays if portafilter cups aren't directly under portafilter. Includes cup adapter to fix this, but interferes with extraction timing. I prefer putting a block underneath shot glasses/cups to raise cups to portafilter.

Great Espresso for Great Price

brendaz6013, Ebay
14 January 2014
  • Summary: I must have my espresso every morning and I just cannot afford to pay $5.50 for one cup of coffee. I previously had two Krups coffee/espresso machines that worked great and when my last one went out I bought another Krups but it exploded on me the first time I used it; so I searched for another brand. I then purchased a DeLonghi EC155 model but did not like having to wait for the machine to heat up.

Not worth the effort!

lam, Amazon
17 October 2013
  • Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this cappuccino maker. It has mixed reviews which made my decision quite difficult. Here's the bottom line: the body of the unit is very lightweight plastic but the lid is heavy, and the basket is very difficult to put in place, all of which makes the unit very unbalanced and very irritating to use. The steamer wand is virtually useless because you have to move the pot in order to use it.

dissapointed

bilrock, Amazon
9 October 2013
  • Summary: This has to be among the top contenders for a non-friendly user product. Very dissapointing, hardly better than a run of the mill coffee machine. For espresso lovers it is fair to poor, closer to poor. You have no control over the pressure. The wand is absurdly small and too close to the coffee outlets. Putting the handle on is shockingly difficult, and it shouldnt be. I never before had any trouble putting the handle on to an espresso machine...very poor...
