Cant believe this machine gets any rating higher than a 3. Not much better than a steamer.
Positive Product Points
Cheap. Frothed milk well.
Negative Product Points
Messy. Burns coffee. Lotsa steam, wheres the pump driven water.
Needed a backup, but this is not for me. Thought I would give it a chance. Purchased at Walmart. Promptly got home to try it out. My experience was not that good but I admit I did not give it much time. After cleaning it and filling, etc. .. I found the steaming part of it to work a little to well, what a mess. Tried to give it some time to cool off before a shot. The bottom tray filled up quick as I tried to get it primed. But it burnt the coffee and just spit all over the place. Reminds me of one of those 20 dollar steam machines but nicer looking. Not good as a backup. Use your current machine as a backup and upgrade to something else, more expensive of course. Anyway I could not find the box fast enough to put it away. Will go back to the store today.
Not much of an experience at Walmart. Picked the box off the top shelf. Wait forever in line.
