It is great for a compact kitchen due to its small footprint. Quick 3 seconds heat up on turning on. The manual option and the temperature sensor auto cut off wand is nice for newbies.
Getting to fix the portafilter in and out is a bit challenging, as the whole unit moves and needs to be held. The drip tray is small and feels very plastic. No hot water dispensing if you are an Americano drinker.
Had it only for a few weeks. Will probably review again after 3 months use.
