Bottom Line: You would have to hold a gun against my head to make me buy this coffee maker again.  Poor design, poor assembly, poor support.
Positive Product Points

Looks good and with a little patience produces passable milk froth.

Negative Product Points

Not enough steam in the boiler to froth a full cup all at once.
Milk reservoir is difficult to clean all surfaces
Milk reservoir retaining clips break easily.
Controls are counter-intuitive.  No light shows if it is making less than five cups.

Detailed Commentary

Bought just before year end in 2004 for an office machine.  The product when assembled, did not work.  I disassembled the machine and found the tube from the hot plate to the coffee filter compartment was never attached.  When reassembled, it worked fine for two months and then a retaining clip in the milk reservoir broke.  The part was back ordered and only arrived after a couple months of holding the milk reservoir in place by hand using a pot holder.  When healthy, the machine makes a good pot of coffee, but does not make enough steam in the boiler to properly froth enough milk for a slightly larger coffee cup.  Yesterday, the same milk reservoir clip broke sending a geyser of milk over those gathered around.

Buying Experience

Bought on E-Bay, smooth transaction.
