Baby was made from quality aluminium and is very simple. Easy to disassemble too! There’s nothing filmsy on this Baby. No plastic!
Seal is available from OE if you ever need it. The current seal on the Baby works well. Some lube and using it will keep it healthy for a really really long time! In fact, the only thing that ever needs care is the seal, no other part will ever need replacement. But if you want to replace the seal, it’s available from OrphanEspresso for about $25 dollar shipped. Not too expensive.

This is pretty tempting, but I don't think I'm going to be able to swing this right now. This would be so cool to put on my shelf next to my Vesuviana and then take into the lunch room for an espresso shot, but I already do this with my Twist.

No problem at all Chris! I really appreciate your input(and bump) :P You probably don't need it that much but it's definitely a very interesting maker to have. The espresso it makes is slightly different character than the one from Cremina, oiler with fuller body but with more delicate flavors.
