I have looked at buying an espresso machine for years but did not not want to pay a thousand plus dollars for a coffee maker. I after reading some positive reviews for the Cuisinart Espresso maker I thought I would try it for the price. I expected that this would take a lot of trial and error, but even our first attempt came out excellent. I then made a cappuccino using the steam wand to froth the milk and it was easy to use and worked well.This espresso machine is great value, makes excellent espressos.
Pros: Easy to use, comes with everything you need, single, double and pod baskets, tamper and frothing cup
Cons: You need to know that the steam/hot water selector is in the centre for espresso, it does not mention this in the manual
