Summary: I bought this for a Christmas gift. It arrived in plenty of time and was well packed. The product box was damaged in several places and was obviously open stock. Lacking time to return/exchange it, I wrapped and gifted it. It was opened in my presence and the filter showed obvious use. My son decided to keep in anyway since it works. As the giver, I was not happy. The product was fine, the service was not.
Summary: I had one prior and when it no longer worked I purchased a "Farberware Espresso Maker" which I was totally dissatisfied with. I now replaced it with another Mr. Coffee Espresso Maker! Things I like about it are: Brews a "Hot" cup of Espresso also Simplicity of Design, Operation---and---"Affordability"!!!!!!!
Summary: I like the fact that I can brew my own cappuchino at home now.It went for a very reasonable price in which I could find out if I liked it and not have put more money into a new one only to decide I didn't like it. So far I do.
Summary: I was truly disappointed. I wanted a simple, beginner's espresso maker for lattes and mochas. Whatever metal is used for the heating elements leaves a terrible metallic taste and smell in the coffee, no matter what type of coffee I used or how many t ... imes I cleaned the machine. Looking for a different brand! Didn't have it long enough for anything to break. Knob for brewing/steaming and for accessing the water reservoir very hard to turn, tighten.
