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.
I've had a chance to use the new machine a few times. Observations:
--At least one user reported odd chemical or plastic odor when using. I have not observed this.
--Someone expressed dissatisfaction with the need to steam the milk before making the coffee. This is NOT necessary. The instructions do recommend steaming the milk first, but this is only to avoid the frustration of using almost all the water/steam pressure when making the coffee, only to find that there isn't enough left to steam the milk adequately. The milk steaming process uses only a fraction of the amount of water used to make an espresso, so under normal circumstances there should be enough left if you do the coffee first.Read more ›
My last expresso machine was also a Krups steam powered. Lasted for 13 years until it fell apart last week (the prssure valve inside broke). For my replacement machine, I was looking at fully automatic ones (Magnifica, $900), pump based (like cuisineart em-200, $200), and steam powered (like this item, $50). After reading all the review and knowing how pump based machine works, I decided not to go for them. The main reasons are they require a lot of maintenance and they can break down easily. I just do not want high pressure stuff in my house. If it breaks down, it may take a month or two to fix it. After warranty is over, it is more expensive to fix than buying a new one. I basically want a reliable espresso machine which can last 10 years with very little mainenance.
I typically makes a few shots in the morning as soon as I get up. I just do not see how pump based or full automatic machine can save me time. They require preheat which can take 1-5 minutes. For steam based ones, I just load up the coffee and water and wait. Both would give me pretty good espresso after 5-7 minutes.
As far as flavor goes, I do not really feel any difference between my cheap machine and starbucks/peet's coffee, given using the same coffee. I think good espresso got more to do with type of coffee then the machine. Started drinking espresso drinks heavily in college in 80s, I think I am pretty picky on coffee.
I saw a local store carries this item at $49. I decided to give it a try since they have pretty liberal return policy. It turns out to be a pretty good machine, better than my old Krups and with high pressure.Read more ›
For the price, I think this is a great starter if you're strapped for cash or want to dabble with espresso & latte preparation. I've had mine for 2 years now. It's the first one I ever bought. I've had to replace the coffee grind holder/handle once (for about $13), but other than that, i've had no problems. read the directions, they are great. they inform you that pressure builds within the machine and if you do not properly release the pressure upon completion, then yes, it will explode the grinds all over you. duh.
it's pretty easy to clean and maintain. I bought a brush to clean the steaming wand.
It does not come with a frothing pitcher or a beverage thermometer (which i recommend) but they are both pretty inxpensive. I ordered one of each when i ordered my machine.
regarding timing, i put the water in my machine and it begins steaming within 1 minute-1 1/2 minute TOPS. Then when i'm done steaming my milk, i switch it right to the coffee setting and it dispenses my coffee instantly. thats good enough for me!
Hope this review is helpful. i've recommended this to many friends and I think its fantastic for the money.
How the knob works is a little janky and is part of the reason this only gets 4*. you have to make half of the espresso then steam the milk then finish the espresso. I am used to it now but it was strange at first because of course I'm used to the machine at my work.
the steam wand: I took off the stupid little plastic frother. it really makes it worse, it makes bubbles not froth. anyone that gets this, i recomend just taking it off and hold the steam wand barely in the milk and you will hear it making a sucking sound. this will make much better "frothed" milk rather than bubbly milk and that is the other reason I gave it 4*.
another thing, I have heard that when you go to dump the grounds from other home espresso machines they will be watery and you have to rinse it to get them out. if you let the steam run through the grounds on this one for a few seconds once all the water is out like the instruction manual says to they will pop out in a nice little disk like they are supposed to :D this makes clean-up easy
PROS: good espresso at home, used espresso pops out easily, decanter that it comes with makes measuring water out easy
CONS: steam/off/espresso knob, plastic steam wand frother thingy, doesnt come with a steam pitcher or tamper, doesnt come with the manual (can be found on the internet, however)
OTHER THOUGHTS: be sure you get a steam pitcher trying to steam milk in a cup doesnt work very well, I did it for the first few days then I picked a steam pitcher up from work.Read more ›
