Priced at what it's worth now then.

I think this the same one that was 24.99 recently ? Most people seemed pretty happy with it at that price point.

i have this one for about 2 months, can't remember how much i paid :) but i'm quite happy with it. it's not top of class,but you not paying 200-300 £££ :) steam not very powerful (Milk frother),but it's enough. good buy for the price it's for sure. hope it helps to someone :)
p.s. you need to buy good coffee like : french,cosra rica (medium), strong ones (italian,continental)

Yep, so it was. The general consensus seemed to be that this makes perfectly good coffe as long as care is taken in using it (preheat, run water through it a couple of times before use so it's ncie and hot, use good coffee, tamp well) - but that's the case with an expensive machine too; well-made espresso takes some skill.

I was shopping for an espresso maker recently. Looked at these but decided to splash out a bit more and got a DeLonghi EC330 for ~£85 - not sure how this compares but I would heartily recommend the DeLonghi.

I bought one of these recently. Made coffee one day and it was ok, the frothing worked ok

But second time i tried to use it - it wouldn't work - followed the instructions to the letter.

I think - if you get one and it works - then they aren't bad for the money - but there seem to be quite a few dodgy ones out there. From memory the 3 yr warranty was only around a fiver. Given the very dubious build quality - i'd get that too (and I never ever ever buy extended warranties!)

Bought one at 24.99 last month. The instructions are back to front - clockwise, anti clockwise. Not a bad cup of coffee, but no better than a caffeteria in my opinion. Took it back for a refund.

i got one of these for Christmas and they are great when they work !!!!

the one ive got seems to have a mind of its own sometimes it makes great espresso and froths milk fine, other times its seems to spit its dummy out and produces espresso which is weak without a crema all from the same pack of ground coffee and doing everything the same. the times where it all goes wrong it seems as though the machine just doesnt have much pressure and at the same time the milk frother just does not produce enough steam to froth milk.
ive also got a Tassimo and this will never replace that but on its good days the cookworks produces a great espresso or latte but on the times it plays dumb it seems a lot of trouble and hasstle for a drink that my Tassimo can do without the hasstle, only problem with the Tassimo is the price of the T-Discs.
