I bought this Breville Espresso Maker for my husband for Christmas. I researched Espresso makers for a week before I decided on the Breville Infuser Espresso maker. The machine is beautiful, well built with Stainless Steel. The instructions were clear and fairly easy to follow for a first time espresso maker like me. It heats up Fast and is ready to use almost as soon as you put it on. The Milk Frothier works perfectly and doesn't spray the milk all over like other frothiers I've used. My husband says it taste better than the coffee shop and saves him money and time. It only takes a few minutes to make it for him. I use the instant hot water for my tea. Well worth the price and makes my kitchen look even more beautiful.

I have never owned an espresso maker, myself. I bought it as a gift. The recipient has liked it very much and has had no problems with it. The only objection would be that it is noisy, but if that is all I can find wrong, then that is a small price to pay for a great machine.

This makes a wonderful cup of coffee and I use it mostly for lattes. This is the second refurbished one I have bought -- the first was a gift for my daughter. If you love espressos, you'll get great use out of this. It does not take up a large footprint in the kitchen either.

You get what you pay for. This is a VERY cheap knock-off of a Bialetti. Nowhere near the quality of a Bialetti, it looks like a rough prototype made from a clay cast of a real Bialetti. The pot drips when you pour, if you open the top you will get scalded by hot coffee running down the top, the thing simply doesn't screw together tightly, the coffee basket doesn't come out of the water container base smoothly, etc, etc. It's really better to just pay the full price of the real thing than to use this item.

Very very disappointed. I was so excited about my purchase and was " bragging" to family and friends on Thanksgiving about my find on overstocked and how it is the best website...then when setting this up for after dinner esspressos with everyone and taken out of the box to use for the first time, the handle wouldn't latch so was leaking water everywhere. No esspressosnfor us :-( I'm sure brand new it's fine and it is a very nice machine but, I don't think it was ever refurbished.

Refurbished doesn't mean used or broken! We love this machine! It works great and was the perfect girt for my husband. I purchased the extra warranty, just in case, but it was still less expensive than buying the machine new. I'm pretty sure the machine had never been used, just returned because the factory seals were still on. Great purchase!

I wanted an espresso coffee maker and to get a Cuisinart was wonderful. It makes good coffee, but, I don't like that it keeps running and you have to stand there and watch or it will overflow. Most coffee makers will pour one cup and stop, this one doesn't. Also it continues to drip into the container and if not emptied after two or three cups, it will overflow. Disappointed in this Cuisinart product.

I would like to take this opportunity to provide my experience. I purchased a refurbished EM-100FR espresso maker. It made great espresso, but it leaked (from the bottom slowly at night), so I returned it. There was no issue with making espresso. Overstock accepted it back with no questions asked and I got my refund. I since have purchased the exact same model new elsewhere because I decided not to go with another refurbished model again, no other reason. Otherwise I think this is a good espresso machine for the price. Re: the reviews citing defective espresso cups....I thought they were defective....but they are NOT defective. Espresso as I have learned is brewed under high pressure but a reduced temperature compared to drip coffee. This is responsible for the taste of espresso. The single small brew hole that you think is defective is actually the way it is supposed to be. The espresso machine pumps the hot water to high pressure and forces it through that little hole. You don't think that it can but it does! If you use too fine coffee grinds, then the espresso cup will become clogged and it will not work. Soaking it overnight in soapy water will solve it. This is not a problem with the espresso cup design. Several top end models of espresso machines use the exact same cup this one does. I also have not had any issues with the steaming wand being too short. It works quite fine for me.

I just received my - much anticipated - new Cuisinart Espresso Maker (refurb.) It arrived as if it was brand new (*I must admit - I was a little worried that I would be receiving some one else's used coffee maker). Everything was packaged in original factory box - shiny - bright and brand new. (All the "extras" u see in the pic.s were there). I unpacked everything and was initially worried to even turn it on after reading reviews of leaky gaskets and exploding coffee. But again, no worries... Just take a few extra minutes to Read & RE-Read the instructions (I think understanding how the machine functions is probably the most important part - just my opinion!) The instruction book tells you everything - from your initial first use of running plain water thru - right up to making your first espresso/latte etc. A few tips: There is no "gauge" that will shut off (like the cheaper models) so - you need to do a few "test runs" of making one cup at a time... (get decaf - this way you can taste each one as u go along and will still be able to sleep at night :) Once you are confident with knowing how much liquid/espresso should be in your cup all u need to do is shut off the machine (it really is that simple). Making the "foam" is the same; I tested a few times ---- and was able to see how quickly the milk doubled and tripled. When I was comfortable with all the knobs, water & coffee levels - I worked on my "tamping pressure". TEST - TEST - TEST: Test the "Tamping" - meaning - put a scoop of coffee in the supplied tin - holding the lever in one hand - press the coffee down firmly with the supplied tool (flat end) repeating approx. 3 times (FYI: The directions call for "30 pounds of pressure" (What???-- That was questionably to me - who would possibly know how hard 30 pounds of pressure is ???) By testing - I was able to tamp it down firmly - then lightly touch the top of the coffee - if it still feels loose - tamp again - u should end up with a fairly hard surface--- Once you have the technique (and confidence down ) it starts to seem very easy & self explanatory. After - all of the above (which took me about a half hour to learn the knobs/noises/feel of everything), I made my first "real" cup of cappuccino ---- IT WAS FABULOUS!!! It was worth the wait and I am sure my pocketbook will starting feeling the rewards as well... I hope u enjoy your new espresso machine as much as I am sure we will !!! Good Luck & Enjoy!!!!

I've thoroughly enjoyed this product. It has allowed me to save money from buying specialty coffee out side the home.

Easy to use, makes delicious espresso with beautiful crema. Foaming nozzle is great for making cappuccinos.

My husband and I read a zillion reviews of this and other espresso machines and compared notes. We arrived at the same conclusion: it's the very best choice in its price point and category. After using it for about three weeks, we are convinced that we made a good purchase. It's easy to use and the espresso is great. It looks good on the counter and it's fairly easy to maintain. The only problem is that it makes our French Press taste like swamp water!

I've had the espresso maker for almost a year. It works great!

We received the programmable expresso maker, not the one we ordered as listed above. When brewing the coffee spews outside of cup and the steamer takes a long time to heat.

I have bought this product only because my friend have bought one, and I love it wouldn't trade for any coffee machine... One thing I have to drive about 30 miles to get my coffee but its ok.

I am loving my new machine; it was easy to figure out how to use and easy to use. It seems very well made and I am very satified.

The seal on the brewhead does not function properly and does not seal in the water. Water spews out the sides and causes a giant mess of water and espresso grinds, with no espresso to show for it. Complete failure. I returned the first one and Overstock sent me a replacement, as I thought it could be a one-time problem. The same seal problem occurred with the replacement. I asked for a refund the second time around - not worth it to bother with a third. Don't bother or waste your time. This is not a good product.

As a refurbished item I wasn't expecting absolute perfection and I didn't get it. The overflow tray is slightly bent but not bad enough to cause any operational problem and isn't noticeable by anyone who doesn't clean the unit. It was supposed to come with a one cup filter, a two cup filter and a filter to hold the new little pre-packaged packets of coffee. It came instead with two one cup filters and a two cup filter, which actually suits my needs better. This would have been a problem if I had any interest in purchasing the pre-packaged one cup units of coffee. Overall I'm very pleased with the unit but with the minor defects can't rate it excellent. I will, however, give it an excellent for the cup of coffee it makes. I've had other units and they weren't as good. We travel to Europe regularly and this unit makes coffee exactly like the better quality bakeries have available there and I don't need to walk half a mile every morning for my great cup of coffee.

Makes delicious froth quickly with skim and 1% milk and even half and half. The frother mechanism has to be removed each time you use it to clean it effectively and feels a little flimsy but makes a great cappuccino and latte. I hope for the money that it lasts

It's does exactly what you'd want in an espresso machine. I especially like the frother. It does make some weird noises when it primes itself to brew. It caused me to call Customer Service and that was a disappointing experience. I called twice and neither CS Rep really knew much about the product.
