Pros: Affordable, simple, nice looking, easy to clean, effective, quick.
For the price, this machine is great, truly. It takes a little bit of practice to get the whole system down, but after about three or four uses I had it pretty much figured out. Now, after having made about a dozen drinks with it, from start to finish its takes under 10 minutes to make the drink and do a basic clean up. The instructions are a bit odd but with a little getting used to, it makes good and easy sense. A few things to keep in mind: only use as much water as you will use (don't overfill) and always let the steam run out when you shut the machine down (letting steam stay in the line will kill a steam system - I've done it to a steam mop personally). When you are done making the drink, unplug it. The element in the tank is super hot and while it seems really sturdy , leaving an element on with no water is very dangerous. After everything cools down a bit disassembly and clean up is really easy and quick.
Cons: Steam nozzle doesn't swivel, very basic.
The only real con I can see so far is the steam nozzle is a bit annoying to get to, particularly if you are using a tall cup. In such a case, I have to pull the machine close to the edge of the counter and turn it so I can squeeze the cup up to the nozzle. This is not a huge con and perhaps the lack of swivel action might make it sturdier in the long run, thus not a major complaint as it is easily overcome. Some might find this model just too basic, as it is essentially just the bare-bones model. However, I would rather have a basic model from a good name brand company (Krups has great customer service ratings) than a higher end model from a questionable company.
All in all this unit is a 5 star no-brainer if for no other reason than it has literally already paid for itself. Now, every day that I go to work and I wave to the Starbucks folks without stopping in, I'm not spending another 4 or 5 bucks. Now I'm just drinking in the profit, so even if it doesn't last forever, I can live with that; it's earned its keep.
but the one most annoying thing you'll quickly find is that the frothing doesn't work very well. Also due to the low pressure of a steam based unit, the frothing will only spit out enough pressure (roughly 2 bars), which isn't enough to get the THICK foam you would want for a nice cup of Latte. you can use whole milke, and it'll come really close due to the high content of fat. you can forget about frothing with 2% or low fat, it'll just come out as warm milk. you'll really need high pressure pump based unit to achieve thick foam frothing. i quickly found myself looking for a replacement 3 weeks after using this unit.
don't get me wrong, at its current price, it's not a bad deal for someone to get into the game and experiment with. But you'll quickly find that you'll need to step up to something that's more adequate, like a pump based unit. I ordered a EC155 pump based unit to replace this. and the frothing comes out perfect no matter what type of milk, with golden brown foamy espresso extract.
