  • DANGEROUS COFFEE MAKER - COULD CAUSE SEVERE BURNS

    May 4, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good coffee for a while
    Cons: CAP BURST, small stiff slick knobs, small driptray (in big housing), fairly big,

    Summary: I started writing this review a while back - and forgot to post it. I was happy with it at the time. Today the cap broke (exploded some have said) and filled the kitchen with potentially scalding steam. If i had been there and about to turn it off I ... read more

  • Very Dangerous Machine

    Aug 6, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Good for short term & infrequent use.
    Cons: Dangerous small appliance - beware!

    Summary: I've had my Mr.Coffee ECM150 since Feb. 2006. Bought it for about $25.00 at Macy's. Using it at first a couple times a day. But this machine has to be watched at all times - it will overflow if you put enough water for both the espresso and to steam ... read more

  • Worked For A Minute. No, Seriously.

    Dec 7, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Made decent espresso for a limited time.
    Cons: Broke after about a month of use. Pretty lame.

    Summary: My husband bought this machine for me cuz I'm a coffee addict. Also, we're poor. Well, really, I'm not into spending $3,000 for an espresso maker and neither is he. Moving on...the thing worked pretty well for a while. After around a month of making ... read more

  • I love my ECM 150

    Dec 6, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use and clean. Sturdy - lasts for many uses. Very reasonably priced.
    Cons: I wish they came in white. Frothing is slower than I would like.

    Summary: I have had my ECM 150 for over 2 years, and we use it at least twice a day every day and it is a wonderful little work horse. It's a little slow at frothing - takes about 1 1/2 - 2 minutes to get it good and hot, but well worth it for the cost. It makes ... read more

  • Danger - Made In China plastic cap EXPLODES

    Sep 20, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Works fine right until the moment it explodes in your face.
    Cons: Good espresso isn't worth a trip to the hospital.

    Summary: This is my 4th machine in a long, fairly happy history; up until now most low-end steam-only units used an internal ALUMINUM cap with a integral pressure relief valve; these typically worked fine. This one, however was the first one I have bought ... read more

  • Best for the money

    Pros: Makes delicious espresso, easy to use, dummy-proof
    Cons: None that I've found

    Summary: Before recently vacationing in Italy I wasn't a big coffee drinker. But I saw so many people drinking espresso I figured I'd try it out and ended up falling in love with it. I knew I was going to have to buy an espresso maker when I came back to the ... read more

  • A great way to save some money

    Sep 13, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, easy to clean, fast, perfect size for the office
    Cons: The steamer tip can clog with milk

    Summary: I’ve had my Mr. Coffee Steam Espresso and Cappuccino Maker for about 4 years now and I love it. If you’re a Starbucks addict, this thing will pay for itself in the first month. It may take some refining to get your technique down but when you get it ... read more

  • Great Value Espresso Machine

    Sep 10, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, efficient, sturdy
    Cons: Lacks a few professional components

    Summary: As a coffee lover, I have always wanted to be able to make my own espresso creations at home, without spending the big bucks on a fancy espresso maker. I find that the Mr. Coffee 4 cup espresso and cappuccino maker is an excellent buy at a relatively low ... read more

  • Great little unit is marred by too-cheap carafe.

    Jun 9, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well-made, stylish and inexpensive. Durable (except for carafe) Simple and easy-to-use.
    Cons: Low-quality plastic carafe and steamer sleeve. Steamer outlet hard to clean. Switch hard to turn.

    Summary: First off, for the price, this unit does as well as some espresso makers costing 10 times as much. With just a little upgrade, Sunbeam/Mr. Coffee could have a total winner. The unit is totally manual, so the gadget-oriented might not like it ... read more

    Pros: Always quick and easy. Lasted two years saved me at least $2,000.00 over Starbucks..
    Cons: The cap blew off, seperated itself  and part was still screwed into the machine.

    Summary: I, a 65 year old chef bought this machine for morning coffee.  I've had it for a few years and it was perfect for my needs.  This morning, my 3 year old grandaughter and I were making coffee and making breakfast together and the damn Espresso ... read more

    Pros: Cheap.
    Cons: Too cheap

    Summary: Worked fine for a year.  Some design problems such as the overflow "drip tray" is too small and the knob and cap are too smooth to handle if your hands are wet.  Forget using it if you have arthritis in the hand.  Cheap carafe broke ... read more

    Pros: It's a decent espresso machine, for the price
    Cons: It explodes and God help you if you're close to it when it goes "KA-BOOM"

    Summary: I've had mine for several months and it worked fine; until today. I loaded the coffee grounds, poured in the water and screwed on the water tank cap. It was about 5 minutes later as I was sitting several feet away working on my computer when the ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive, nice design.
    Cons: Not very long-lived, cheap, flimsy carafe...kind of light. You can tip it over easily.

    Summary: My Mr. Coffee (this model) lasted less than a year, then gave up the ghost. I also went through three carafes...they start falling apart - first the top of the handle fell off, then the whole handle fell off (while it had coffee in it, but, fortunately, ... read more

    Pros: Nice design. Fits comfortably in the hand.
    Cons: AM/FM reception is marginal. Make sure you use the headphones for better reception.

    Summary: The design is cool enough, but the reception is not as good as I expected. I'm was a little disappointed! Make sure you use the headphones for better ... read more

    Pros: Makes good coffee. Frother works well.
    Cons: Plastic is of bad quality

    Summary: Top of water container is very hard to turn loose, hardly any grip. The plastic is very cheap. First the little plastic on top of the filter handle broke off. Second the plastic on the coffee pot broke off. Third the big handle on the filter cracked ... read more
