Summary: Following promising recommendations I ordered one of these last week but immediately discovered that a significant amount of water would leak out of the unit from inside the main chamber. It was clearly defective so I ordered a replacement and just tried it out. Same problem!
Summary: We purchased our Gaggia in December. After our machine gave up, we decided to go for broke and purchase a more expensive unit. From the beginning, we had difficulty in getting the milk hot enough for our coffee drinks. We contacted customer service thinking we must be doing something incorrectly.
Never got a fully functioning unit, after 3 tries.

Summary: Grrr!! Very frustrating when Quality Control is the biggest issue of an otherwise excellent product line. This makes wonderful espresso- ONCE you get a fully working unit. My first Classic, the steam knob was broken, apparently from shipping?

therefore expected something really better than various espresso machines I owned and handed out ...

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.
Summary: Worst machine and service ever. First one did not work at all and we have had to send it back twice since. It is broken again, and we are trying to get some or all of our money back. Their service provider is horrible, and actually sent us instructions to fix it ourselves.
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: In the age of the internet - the virtual sum of all human knowledge is available by merely typing a few well-chosen words into the search engine of your choice, and then carefully reviewing the results. There is no excuse for an uneducated consumer in this day and age.
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

Summary: I entered the espresso game fairly recently and purchased a delonghi ec155 because of the rave reviews, after a disappointing start I did some more research and found that the temperature stability and pump power were not consistent enough to produce an acceptable shot espresso, let alone a good...
