    The KitchenAid range was recommended by a friend and as soon as I saw pictures I wanted one. I was concerned by some of the online reviews, after all these years of waiting and at this price I didn't want to be disappointed. I took the plunge and mine was finally delivered today.

    So, I followed the instructions and set up; I met with problems from the word go. I started to clean the two boilers as instructed. The machine was so noisy and loud when I switched on the pump I was sure something wasn't quite right. I pressed on though, first cleaning the brewing boiler which although loud seemed to work. Next I tried cleaning the frothing boiler but I had no luck with this at all and whatever I tried could not get any water out of the frothing nozzle. This problem had been noted in many of the reviews I'd read. I gave up in the end and decided to froth some milk and make my first coffee.

    I'd never used an espresso machine before and my first attempt was poor, tasting nothing like the coffee house cappuccino I love. The milk frothed ok, but the espresso shot was weak and my cappuccino tasted equally watery. I read 'troubleshooting' again and decided it must be to do with the siphon hoses. BINGO! The noise disappeared and a second attempt at dispensing hot water was an instant success. The key here seems to be to make sure the clear siphon tube (not the black one) touches the bottom of the water tank. My machine was delivered with the tube about half way into the tank (which I thought was odd) - a gentle pull cured this and now the tube rests on the bottom.

    Brilliant, my second cup was much improved and really smooth. I even managed to get the elusive crema and I have high hopes of improvement with some more practice.

    I've had my cream Artisan Espresso machine for about a month now and I'm delighted with it. I had wanted to move on from stove top mocha express devises and had been researching pumped Espresso machines for a while, the KitchenAid took me with a first glance! This is a stunning piece of industrial design, infinitely better looking in the flesh than in pictures and if you fall for it's looks than nothing else will do!

    So how dose it perform? Wonderfully well! The very first shot of Espresso pulled was just great including a near perfect creama, what more could you ask for? There is no point in me regurgitating the technical specifications of the machine but I'm sure that the twin boilers are a considerable asset because the brew water is never over heated while you have steam ready all the time and of course once you are adept you can brew and steam at the same time. I'm inclined to think that a commercial grade 58mm chrome plated brass portafilter is essential as this really dose hold its temperature and leads to greater consistency. The supplied tiny plastic tamper is really quite inadequate other than to get you started, I've now purchased a Reg Barber one which is an immense improvement allowing the ideal compacting of any grind of coffee into the portafilter, this is important as it's one of the greatest influences on the extraction of the coffee. The supplied milk jug is nice but a little on the small side, only suitable for single helpings of Cappuccino, no big deal really as a twin shot of Espresso makes one Cappuccino!

    Negatives!

    This may be because I am not doing it right; because the coffee is too or not well enough ground but ... I simply can't get this machine to produce a good creme. Having owned fully automatic machines by Jura and Gaggia in the past (once they break down that's it) this was a bit disappointing. I can live with coffee from a cafetiere (excellent) but you really miss the occasional espresso. So far - four weeks in - I haven't managed it with this machine. The coffee seems wet and burnt. It is a solid, well made machine but it is not doing what I want. Nor have I found it great at frothing milk but I don't like hot milk and rarely use it so this may be a factor.

    I've had one of these for several years now... Well, actually, I'm on my second machine now. The first was replaced under warranty as it seemed to have lost the will to squeeze the water through the coffee. :-(. After six months or so the second machine developed a leak and there's regularly a big puddle of water on the counter underneath it. :-(. And now the paint is blistering and peeling off. Aside from these minor details (ahem), it makes fabulous coffee.

    The build quality is good, it's really solid construction and looks great, but for the money, you'll want it to work for years.. And it doesn't.

    Buy something else.... Sorry Kitchen Aid, but this machine is a duffer... Sort your product quality out before asking people to part with £500.

    It looks great in the kitchen, but the enamel paint peeled off in the first year. KA replaced without question, but the same happened to the 2nd machine, but this time I couldn't be bothered to replace it. Now I've had the 2nd machine for just over a year and the steamer has stopped working. Both machines have also had very poor steamer performance, taking about 90 secs to steam just enough milk for a single latte; very annoying when you have lots of cups to make for guests. I've had enough. Nice looks, but very poor build quality. For the price I'd expect more - much, much more.
