A true benchmark machine, this machine made Rancilio a lot of money since it was introduced in 1998 - it has become the standard against which all other consumer, single boiler machines are measured against. Currently in its 3rd revision.
Carl Scott (quality: 1.2)
Bottom Line: Seems well-built, but espresso is very disappointing, with nearly zero crema, no matter what I tried. Not worth it, a $100 Krups out-performs it. Good at frothing, but not great. Thumbs down.
Iced Chilli (quality: 1.3)
Bottom Line: If machine was any better it would be an AutoBOT.
Susan Hastings (quality: 1.5)
Bottom Line: great machine has a boiler reset button if it overheats and quits working reset your boiler and it will work like new
Christian Callsen (quality: 1.5)
Bottom Line: Guaranteed Crema ?spresso. All the time.
Petey Overton (quality: 1.5)
