Similar Items Owned: Saeco
Bottom Line: DO NOT BUY THIS ESPRESSO MACHINE
Positive Product Points

It makes decent milk (when the attachment isn't shooting off)

Negative Product Points

Poor quality
Leaks
Milk frother attachment shoots off periodically
Makes weak coffee (maybe due to the water pressure being too high?)

Detailed Commentary

This has to be the worst espresso machine I have used. From the day I bought it, water has spewed out the seal between the coffee pod and the machine (I have replaced the seal multiple times with no luck). The rubber froth attachment blows off regularly scaring the sh*t out of me and spreading milk all over the place. And the espresso it makes is weak even though I use the strongest ingredients I can find. Perhaps this is a result of the water seeming to shoot out the coffee pod, and not come out in a slow stream as previous machines I have owned do.

Unfortunately I had to get rid of my Saeco machine, as I moved from the US to Australia (hence voltage change). Now that machine made a good espresso :-(
