Positive Product Points

.solid build,really grinds beans,looks great with my rancilo silvia in stainless steal

Negative Product Points

there is no negative comments yet,i think this machine is worth the money just save up your money or talk your significant other to get this for you as a present

Detailed Commentary

very easy to use looks great on my kitchen country,u can dial in the settings and
it really works. it is build like a tank

wish i could teach my kitten to operate the grinder-just talking about it makes me long for myhomel  i need reliable caffeine to wake me up in the morning as i am not a morning person-what else can i say. it would be nice if it cost less

i think there is nothing to say because it is perfect if you do not have a burr grinder you should not use a pump expresso machine stick with drip and a chopper

Buying Experience

fine great

Three Month Followup

the rancillo continue to crank out great expresso as good as the first day. My recommendation clean the machine everyweek with expresso cleaner and use a brush kit to keep the  brew head clean and you will be fine.
I am using  the hot water for both tea and instant soup and this is the best investment I have made-you do not need to spend more money for a fancy machine. nor should you buy a cheaper machine.
Also--keep the drip pan clean and invest in a great grinder like the rocky which is what i use!
