Cuisinart EM-100 Mediocre

 

Expect to havce to RMA / Return to manufacturer / get run around from Cuisinart.

Makes a genuinely decent cup of espresso

Malfunctions fast. Steam wand never worked properly, only spits out hot water. Cuisinart support is insultingly poor. I bought mine around Christmas time, and am still getting the run around. This is the only time I've taken the time to write a...

Malfunction

 

I read all the reviews before buying, so I knew this thing could be "picky" and knew what I was getting into in terms of keeping it scrupulously clean. I admit I did think to myself that maybe some of the negative reviewers were impatient or lacking in...

Good Espresso maker

 

Works fast Espresso hot Easy cleanup Stores water makes milk foamy

Problem making two cup espresso. Milk does not get hot enough. Espresso gets stuck in the filter - look for this when cleaning

I love it!

 

My unit arrived with a small crack in the water tank so I had to return it. Newegg quickly helped me and handled my return at no charge to me! I was very satisfied and would recommend Newegg and the Cuisinart EM-100 Espresso Maker to my friends.

Makes great espresso with crema, steams milk and looks great on my counter top! Holds plenty of water for one or two cups and cleans up easily. After a few tries, anyone can make cafe quality coffee drinks at home. This unit will quickly pay for itself!

None, this is a great product! There are more expensive machines on the market but this one works great for me.

Good Machine

 

For the money it saved me by not going to starbucks, it was worth it. It lasted 1.5 years under very heavy usage.

Easy to use and clean. Makes great coffee drinks. Large water reservoir so you don't have to refill everyday. Dishwasher safe parts which make clean up easy.

I had the machine about a year and six months and it started leaking steam around the steamer stem. It looks like it's getting water inside the main part of the unit, so I don't expect it to last much longer.

Good espresso

 

Takes a few tries to figure out the nuances of this machine but once you do the pours are good. Definitely replaces the cost of Starbucks and for less (depending on how often you go) Clean up is a cinch. Wondering about the filters though... grounds...

None yet.

Great espresso from a workhorse of a machine!

 

I love espresso drinks--all of them. Thus, I had to have a machine to use every day. I've had several others before the Cuisinart, but none lasted for more than three years. This baby has been with me for over six years now and is still going strong....

bye bye starbucks

 

This is a state of the art espresso machine that brews espresso perfectly and can make steaming milk a breeze. What is amazing about this machine is it brews the espresso quickly so that the coffee doesn't oxidize and turn bitter. Therefore, the...

So far I am pleased with this product

 

I got this to replace a different espresso machine, that stopped working after only two years. So far this machine is working out nicely and I am happy. I'm hopping it lasts longer then two years though!
