Bottom Line: Another steam wand failure!
Positive Product Points

Good little machine that produced surprisingly good espressos and lattes until steam wand fell off

Negative Product Points

Steam wand stripped its threads and cannot be replaced

Detailed Commentary

We bought this a few years ago for our second residence, so only used for 75-100 days per year.  

I was pleasantly impressed with the quality of the shots and the milk steamer.

This trip the steam wand fell out so I pulled the back off and tried to reattach it only to discover that the threads were stripped or deficient.  It just pushed back in, i.e. Wont screw in.

I have not been in contact with the supplier yet to find if they have a replacement wand available with a superior attachment.

If I can repair it I will be happy to keep using it, but if not I won't buy another Cruisinart.

Yesterday I looked at an EM200 and the steam wand on that also felt flimsy.

Buying Experience

Bricks and mortar so no problems
