1. It's easy to use. Follow the directions on the coffee tin to figure out how much to use. In order to make one drink for myself, I used one heaping tablespoon of Illy espresso and 5 oz of water. Put the water in the bottom, the coffee (not pressed) in the filter part, screwed it on and set on the stove (medium heat). Wait until it stops gurgling, and the coffee is done.
2. The milk frother is great. Start heating it up before you begin making the coffee because it takes a while to warm the milk. Once its done, take it off the burner, place the lid on, and pump it a few times. The milk was thick and frothy.
3. I poured the "espresso" in the cup, added the milk, and voila! Sure, it's not "true" espresso because there is no crema, but to me it tastes just as good as Starbucks and was a fraction of the cost of an espresso machine. I'm sure I'll be saving money in no time. I plan to buy some vanilla syrup and enjoy many lattes, capuccinos, and steamers.
4. To clean, wait until the pot cools, then rinse everything out with water and dry by hand.
I reccomend this set to anyone who wants to make lattes at home. I am very happy with my purchase.
Prior to this, I have never used a stove-top espresso maker before. The instruction in the box was very clear. I added water to the bottom portion, scooped in the espresso, screw on the top and place on the stove. It was pretty simple. If I fill the water to the fill-line, and put the espresso maker on the stove then turn on the element (electric), it takes exactly 5 minutes on my stove to make the espresso. I bought some good quality organic espresso beans for this, and the result? Heavenly! The coffee is so good, and it's so easy to make. The machine is very easy to rinse out.
The frother is equally useful. I have used skim milk, 1% milk, soy milk, and almond milk to make my lattes. They all work well, but obviously the higher fat content ones tend to froth thicker. The non-stick lining in the frother is a great feature, making it very easy to clean.
If you are making a latte, you probably want to heat up the milk on the stove first, wait a couple of minutes, than put the espresso maker on. The milk takes a little longer to heat up than the coffee.
I was spending over $40 a week at Sbux prior to this. With this set, I am having my morning coffee at home that costs very little to make. Since buying this set 2 months ago, I've used it at least once a day, but often twice a day. We even take it camping and use it on the butane stove. With all the usage, it's showing no sign of wear. Only time will tell when I have to replace the o-ring. But this is one well-made set of espresso/latte maker. Highly recommended!
On a whim I purchased this set, as it generally received good reviews and the price was right. Am I glad I did--this thing works great, and consistently makes a cappuccino that is superior to what I get at most local coffee shops. In fifteen minutes, from start to finish, I can make two tasty cappuccinos. As I stated earlier, I am no coffee expert and certainly not a whiz in the kitchen, but this is simple to use (read the helpful tips in some of the other reviews), makes a great cappuccino, and clean-up is quick and easy.
Who needs a $300 espresso machine? I give this four-and-a-half stars and would not hesitate to recommend it to any coffee-lover. A half-star penalty is assessed for the delicate non-stick surface in the milk frother--it scratches easily, so treat it with care (I now use only wooden spoons when stirring the milk as it heats up).

A few items of interest: 1) The directions inside the box state "The level of water inside the bottom part must not exceed the level notches." I didn't see or feel any notches, but in another set of instructions inside the espresso maker it says to "Fill the water in the bottom tank no higher than the bottom of the valve opening." 2) Don't pack the espresso in the filter because the water has to travel through the grounds into the top chamber. 3) The instructions for the frother tell you to "...insert the creamer-cover and shake the milk holding the lid firmly." This is a typo and should tell you to press the plunger/whipper up and down until the milk reaches the desired frothiness.
