The best in it's class.

  • Summary: Yeah so it's loud but wow, I am surprised at what this little baby can do. I have worked on commercial machines like La Marzocco, Rancillio, and the Nuova Simonelli Premier and the Oscar provides exceptionally comparable results.

prideofpearland, Ebay
16 September 2006
  • Summary: First let me say that I really like my Oscars! It makes a great shot, time after time, thanks to the heat exchanger (HX). And the steam capacity of this machine is awesome - you'll run out of milk before you run out of steam.
