I had a bit of trouble with the self-priming function, which kicks in when you turn the machine on. What happened was - air got trapped in the system, and when this happens no steam or coffee can be made.... I've rang Gaggia Service line and they helped me the first time, but it happened a few more times when I had people round and it was embarassing. After a week of the machine working and not working, I figured out that the only way no air would get trapped inside, is by always keeping the tank full to the top making sure that both pipes sucking the water out of the tank are under water.
Other than that, once you've mastered how much to compact the coffee in the brewing head in order to produce a nice cream on top, the machine is very good.
The other thing I was a bit disappointed with was the fact that Amazon did not mention the colour of the machine. On the picture it looked like the black Gaggia Evolution, but when I received it - it turned out to be the GREY one. The grey is dark, almost black, but not good enough if all your kitchen appliances are black and chrome. However, I decided to keep it because I couldn't be bothered to send it back all at my expense.
Hope my experience would be of help.

It's a bit noisier than other espresso machines, and the appearance isn't as appealing as its pictures. The most disappointing is that it became unsteable after merely half an year. I believe it doesn't result from overusing unless once or twice a day is too taxing for this machine. However, the esspresso it makes is hunky enough.

Verified Purchase
I've had the machine for about 3 years now. When it's working, it produces excellent coffee. But it is pretty temperamental. At first it seemed like it was a problem with furring up with scale, and I spent ages using descaler. It worked for a bit, but finally had to be returned to Gaggia who charged £65 or so to service it since of course the guarantee had run out by then. We then made sure that we only used filtered water in it, but after a few months the old problems returned. I spent more hours descaling the thing on several different occasions, and it limped on and off for a while. Now it seems to have totally given up and strange grey bits are coming out of the steam spout. Overall then, not built to last and I shan't be buying another Gaggia despite the fact that when it's working, the coffee it produces is excellent.

I would actually rate this machine 3.5 starts if I could. It isn't bad, but it's not all good either.
On arrival, I unpacked the machine and was initially very impressed. Gaggia UK had put a service contact number sticker on the back, a nice touch I thought. However, I noticed that the case did not fit properly at the top back of the machine, something wasn't clipped in correctly inside. I actually had to open the machine up and bend a plastic clip back into position inside to get the case to fit properly, it wasn't a major issue, but their quality control can't be up to much if that got though, as I spotted it right away.
The general feel of the machine is quite nice, reasonable quality bearing in mind the price. Nothing felt cheap or shabby, but you can�t expect solid stainless steel either. Overall, a nice machine.
The looks are good however, very nice, but that may be a personal taste thing. The black plastic casing is actually like a metallic paint finish on a car, black with silver speckles in it, nice. It looks simple, not fussy, which I like.
The user manual. Good luck, it�s awful. Takes a few reads to know what to do and even then I wasn�t totally sure. I�m no fool, but it had me scratching my head. However, essentially the machine is very easy to use, once mastered.
The water tank. A bit fiddly to take out but does look nice. Manual recommends using filtered or purified water to prevent scaling inside the machine. Personally, using bottled or filtered water is one extra hassle/expense too far. I�m sure it would improve the taste of the coffee and extend the life of the machine, but I just can�t be bothered. It�s already quite a lot of effort making coffee with the machine anyway.
The filters.

We've had one of these neat machines for over a year now having dithered about which one to buy. It has been a really successful purchase and makes good coffee very easily and quickly. I only really gave it four stars as i find cleaning it boring - but it's cerainly not difficult. Buy slightly wider cups than the straight up ones as the twin outlet serves for single as well as double (ie two at a time) shots - our straight cups can lose a bit of the liquid... Enjoy some great coffee

It's amazing reading the other reviews how some people think that it requires too much work or hassle to make a nice cup of latte or cappuccino from this coffee machine! In my experience, the opposite is true. It doesn't take more than a couple of minutes to make a GOOD cup of coffee, and even if you are having a fairly rushed morning, there is almost always time to squeeze in a steaming cuppa. The best thing about this machine is how simple it is to use, once you actually figure out what proportions of espresso and milk you need to make a decent latte. It requires a little practice to get the coffee you like. If you are an espresso fan (which I am not) then there's even less to do. We've had it for 6 months already and it seems to be a reliable machine, no fuss, not much cleaning to do. Descaling it can be a tedious process but thankfully doesn't have to be done that often unless you use the machine VERY often. Looks good, durable, and classy. Definitely a must-have for the postmodern kitchen.
