Bottom Line: very poorly made... spent it's value in repairs.  Never again Gaggia.   Will look for a decent warranty on the next one.  not any 90 day/ 1 year BS on a 1K+ machine.
Positive Product Points

it's pretty and makes OK coffee when it works.

Negative Product Points

very poorly made... spent it's value in repairs.

Detailed Commentary

worked well for about 3 months, then had to change the element and a few other parts... all to be repeated 6 months later... and yes I use distilled water.  Today it has cracks and leaks and I'm looking for a replacement.

I bought it 3 years ago for a crazy price of $1700... I see that they have dropped quite a bit. but still not worth $100.
