Detailed Commentary

This unit was over $ 500 dollars cheaper than the Andreja that it replaces, yet I feel that I got a big upgrade. I really like the automatic dosing & quick warm up (10 minutes) 30 - 45 for the Andreja

I found the andreja butt ugly & noisy, This unit is plesant to look at & considerably quieter.

I do not use a cup warmer, I fill the cup with water & boil it in the micro. I use very heavy thick cups)

The drip tray is very nice in that the drip into area is very large, 2-3 times larger than the andreja, but very shallow, It holds 24 ounces. This has not been a problem but  I'd like to see it deeper

The water tank is much easier to fill, the cover is hinged

I would like to have the full swivel steam arms like the andreja but I like the steam / water valves on this unit better. The O-ring valves a re nice & durable but are nor very controlable, they are basically closed or wide open,

I'm told that this is a re-packaged Pasquini liva 90 auto. The $ saving is in the lack of all that stainless steel.

Buying Experience

Outstanding, this unit was packed better than any other item I have ordered. 2 day free shipping
