Great machine but...
This machine makes very good coffee (provided you supply it with good quality coffee to begin with). The basket holder-in thingy in the handle broke the first day. The on-off switch got cranky after about three months (tries to switch on but fails for several minutes). The built-in screen/gasket clogs easily if the grind is too fine (tricky to clean). There is a lot of mysterious dripping and leaking going on. The steam wand is too long to fit any normal container under it. BUT...this machine has another unexpected good use: it works perfectly as a warmer for overnight yogurt making. Now, if only I could get it to settle down, stop leaking and switch on properly.

I've had this epresso maker for 7 years and it's still running great. It makes a perfect espresso and I have no complaints. I do have to buy a new double shot filter, but considering I've been using it several times a day for 7 years, I think it's reasonnable.

Bad wand design
I guess I didn't learn the first time when the steam wand broke off as I was cleaning it. I thought after seeing that it was "plastic" maybe the design would have changed. So I bought another one. Same model. Well just two years in - the steam wand broke off in my hand as I was cleaning it. Yes... still plastic - not metal. Very weak design.

Great coffee with one flaw
In the right hands, this machine can make coffee second to none. The single drawback it has is a bad steamer design. Steam wand fails inside the unit only months after average use and there is no fix for this.

Very pleased after 18 months. of steady use, but now I'm having trouble with big black knob switch, as the last reviewer says "cranky". Â I've sprayed with some radio shack electronic cleaner, but need to get the knob off. "how does it come off?
We would not suggest taking the knob off yourself as the unit was not designed for such use. If you are running into challenges or difficulties with this unit please contact our customer service department at 1-800-472-7606.
We hope this helps.
