Very easy to use

Very effective milk steamer
Makes a rich, strong, smooth and not bitter drink
DeLonghi EC5 CONS:
Frother is very short
Not very good for steaming a latte's amount of milk
Plastic steam knob
For such an inexpensive machine it works rather well. Couple of drawbacks such as a short frother and not much good for latte's, but other than that does a good job. Keep in mind that this is a very inexpensive model and that it is not intended to have all of the features of more expensive machines. So if you want something easy on the pocket book without all the bells and whistles, this should do it for you.
