The Gaggia Baby is a long standing model from Italy that has gone through several revisions, and is now available in several variants, including the Class, Dose, Basic, and Class D. The Dose (automatic) model is pictured.
Nadav Caine (quality: 9.3)
Bottom Line: Light years ahead of anything in $250 range, but not a conversation piece.
Patrick Sloane (quality: 9.2)
Product Reviewed: Baby Gaggia
Bottom Line: great styling, 'retro' look, solid construction, low maintenance - but don't waste your money on the current model!
Andrew King (quality: 8.5)
Bottom Line: A superb mid-level machine, excellent espresso, Gaggia-quality, questionable steaming functionality
Brad Franks (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: Great espresso if you can figure out and live with the simple ideosyncracies, doesn't meet quality for price.
Jesse Robinson (quality: 7.1)
Bottom Line: Get something designed in the last ten years, at least. Doesn't live up to its reputation.
Alan Magill (quality: 6.5)
Bottom Line: Makes a great espresso. As a first espresso machine, the Baby will do a good job of convincing you that you spent your money wisely.
Owen O'Neill (quality: 6.2)
Bottom Line: Great value for the money - learn the frothing idiosyncrasies and have fun!
Magnus Stensson (quality: 6.2)
Bottom Line: Had the power button been of better quality I'd have liked the Baby to be my friend for many years to come, as it makes good espresso and gives you control of the process.

Bottom Line: Best of the Cheap Espresso Machines—Not Great, Not Terrible
Jim Cummer (quality: 5.9)
Bottom Line: For $300, your espresso problems are over.
Ian Lock (quality: 5.5)
Bottom Line: Great little machine -I'm happy!
Len Caplan (quality: 4.8)
Bottom Line: Great machine if you can find an older model around...if not check out the competition or spring for the extra bucks and buy a Classic or a Sylvia.
Chris Wyser-Pratte (quality: 4.0)
Bottom Line: A good value, mid-level entry point to good espresso
Colin Newell (quality: 4.0)
Bottom Line: This is one of the best espresso machine values for under $500
Niall Smyth (quality: 3.7)
Bottom Line: this machine is a legend for a reason
Mike Stan (quality: 3.5)
Bottom Line: Left behind by the competition.
Thing One (quality: 3.0)
Bottom Line: Great inner works, but terrible outer shell. Avoid this unit. The Gaggia Classic is worth the extra $100
Simon M (quality: 2.2)
Bottom Line: Buy an all metal machine with substantial construction, stay away from this plastic wannabe!
Product Reviewed: Baby Gaggia
Bottom Line: Why upgrade when it works?
Product Reviewed: Baby Dose
Bottom Line: A good entry level machine that will thrill the new comer and satisfy seasoned veterans with a few minor modifications.
