Positive Product Points

endearing appearance

Negative Product Points

inconsistent, usually poor, performance.  Exterior retains good appearance, but interior aluminum surface looked like it was starting to oxidize almost immediately.  This might give those persons worried about the effects of aluminum exposure on their health some cause for concern.

Detailed Commentary

I used this device approximately thirty times, and got reasonable cappuccino out of it twice.   Often the result was too cold, usually the milk didn't froth well, usually the cappuccino was too weak, and often a few grounds got into the final brew.  I followed the instructions, which are not terrible but not great either, meticulously for the first ten attempts or so, then began to experiment with different milks, grinds, stove temps, etc., and could find no correlation to the resulting brew.   I am currently thinking of tossing it into the metal-recycling bin....

Buying Experience

purchased at a chef/kitchen specialty store, based on appearance and because it was the only cappuccino maker in that price range (I usually drink straight drip or espresso).  There was no problem with the vendor.
