UPDATE 1-18-206 These used to be good, but not anymore. They work fine at first, but even if you keep them scale free they develop a leak somewhere within a year. The original price of these was under $60; given the short product life of the newer ones, even that is too high. The current price is totally unjustifiable. This is basically a cheap machine. I am going to replace mine with another brand. ------------- I've had one of these machines for several years and I just ordered another one for our vacation home. The beverage it produces is just as good as any. I use decent beans (Starbucks or comparable) and normal espressso grind. I rarely drink latte or cap, since I prefer full coffee flavor, but on the occasions I have, this machine has done a fine job. I agree with another reviewer that the plastic tube on the steam outlet isn't really necessary. ____________________ UPDATE: I've had a chance to use the new machine a few times...
I paid 59.99 (!) for this machine, have had it for almost a year now, use it every day, and it still works perfectly.
I've read a couple of reviewers saying the machine 'blew up' the first time they used it. I suspect this is user error. This machine is so simple, it could be from the 19th century. Basically, you pour water in the tank, the water gets heated, and the pressure/steam can be directed out of one of three places: through the coffee spout, the steamer nozzle, or from the tank (if you loosen the cap-and ONLY choose that option if you've already released some pressure via the steamer nozzle). If your heated water does not have one of those escape routes, then yes, the machine will probably explode (I've laid out the basic principle, but DO read the directions).
Anyway, the carafe broke, as predicted (very thin glass with a long handle...I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did). And the little symbols (coffee, steam, off/on) have worn off the knob, but...
After OVER 15 years my former Krups espresso machine finally lost its seal and had to be replaced. YES! 15 years of excellent home made espresso (and saving money over buying from the coffee shop that is on every corner - and Mines better!). This replacement has metal detailing that I could live without, but my most important advice is to get rid of the black tube cover on the steam attachment. The first two times I made espresso with this machine with the black attachment on the steam - it foamed not frothed and milk was EVERYWHERE! Removed the plastic cover and no problems. It is very important that you clean milk from the steam attachment thoroughly each time you use it. You will have to remove the black attachment anyway or have trapped milk froth there. My other advice is you must have a metal frothing pitcher if you want foam. I just started using a thermometer for the milk. I'm hoping this one lasts like the last one. In any case, saving $5 over the commercial coffee store...
