I got one that seemed to work fine but stopped working properly after less than a few weeks. The main issue is that it dumped water through the steam pipe into the milk (ugh). Sears customer service was excellent and sent a replacement right away but it had the same issue so the newer never even worked right. So it’s a cool machine, coffee is good and, when the steamer works, produces very nice froth on the milk. However, I can’t say that it would work more than a few times.
Broken since the first time I use. Have burning smell when I plug in. The water tank have dirty color in it.
I have this coffee maker a short time ago, I do not know how durable this article will be. But it makes an incredible coffee, both the cappuccino and the espresso I like a lot. The coffee remains with an aroma, flavor and with the foam that I so desired, that was the main reason why I bought it. You have an incredible coffee machine and at a low price.
