Summary: I bought this little machine from Bed Bath and Beyond since I had a coupon and it was already on sale. I had been using a stovetop Bialetti, but wanted something faster that produced actual espresso. I was nervous about all the bad reviews I read online, but I have to say we are loving this machine.
Summary: De'Longhi is the only brand I have bought for many years (back before bar pressure was available), never been disappointed. I once bought a different brand at 3 times the cost and it was not as good as my De'Longhi. I am very happy with this machine!!!
Summary: Works fantastic! We have had Mr Coffee cheap steam espresso machines ( multiple because they don't last) and this is FAR superior. We finally decided to bite the bullet and spend a little more money. We have had it for a month or so and have no complaints!The froth it makes with the milk is amazing.
Summary: I've had several espresso machines over the years. Some were expensive and a few, like this one, were inexpensive. This machine makes better espresso than the more expensive machines I've owned. This machine is truly a no-brainer.
Summary: First of all this thing looks NICE on my countertops. I am sure it will be a topic of conversation. And it works very very well. The frother felt like a cannon at first. It works and the nossel is long enough. The price was also attractive.
