Summary: Overall customer reviews are mostly positive citing some or all of the PROS listed above. For the price of the machine they considered it a great buy. Need to remember it is only a 2 shot machine, not meant to make large quantities of beverages. Could use a better frother, suggest purchasing a better one separately.
