Summary: After several months operation, the machine would not push water through the liquid (main) dispenser where you would put the cup. Service call was promptly answered by a competent person. She told me it was probably a clogged solenoid and emailed me instructions.

Summary: I am Italian and the brand Gaggia is very popular among the baristi in Italy, therefore expected something really better than various espresso machines I owned and handed out to the Salvation Army.
Excerpt: I am a big coffee drinker, and I really can’t seem to drag myself out of bed in the morning to head off to university if I haven’t first had a cup of hot, strong coffee. Having lived off instant for a few years, I was a ‘virgin’ …

Summary: The only downside to this machine so far is the panarello wand and the cheap accessories. For the price, you can change all of those items out for high quality ones and still come in $100 under some of the other machines in this class.
Summary: This espresso maker worked half the time and half the time did not. it started to have problems after abut a month taking 10-15 minutes to make one espresso. After just over a year, it started to take 45 minutes to brew one cup of espresso.
Summary: I have had this machine for over 12 years. i purchased it used, but refurbished at a great price. I used it alot at first and it made great espresso. Then it sat for a year or 2, dug it back out and it made great espresso again, I took it to work and used it regularly, especially with coffee pods.
Summary: Do not buy this machine. After barely six months, it stopped working due to a faulty valve, according to the guy who repaired it locally. After two weeks, it stopped again. Their warranty is essentially 30 days, it seems....no wonder.
Summary: We have owned this machine now for a year and a half. It makes very good espresso and appears to be pretty durable. We use our espresso machine every day and for the most part it seems to be holding up well.
Summary: This is my first time owning any espresso machine. I bought this along with many other items to help me get my good cup of coffee on a daily base to save money on buying pre-made, non-tasteful coffee.
Good machiene, but you must pay attention to details to get quality espresso shots
