Rated 1 out of 5 by jamaroney Bought two - both leaked like crazy!!
I bought one several months ago. Near the end of brewing cycle, steam began to leak out like crazy, and pools of water formed everywhere (yes, everything was properly closed and sealed). I returned it, and tried another one as it was at a very good price and I hoped that the first unit was just a fluke. NO SUCH LUCK!! The second one did exactly the same thing - literally half the water leaked out!
Also, knobs and container top are in a stupid rounded shape that makes it very tough to hold onto, and the power cord is ridiculously short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doni AWESOME MACHINE!!!!
I have been using this machine for the last 5 years or more. I am very impressed and highly satisfied with it. I am on my 2nd machine but it works great. Saves tons of money every day and for the price, you cannot beat it. Thank you Mr. Coffee :)

I have only used it twice and the glass carafe is already cracked! Now it's useless as the coffee will slowly leak out of the carafe as it is brewing.
Is this the quality of product normal for Mr. Coffee? Can I expect a complimentary replacement or should I return the product to the store?

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gillabean08 Frothing aid doesn't work
I just got this machine in today and couldn't wait to try it out! I carefully read the instructions (twice) and began. The espresso brewed quickly which was nice and the machine was surprisingly easy to use. However, when I turned the setting to steam to steam my milk, nothing. I tried several different approaches, all while reading the manual again, and still nothing. It did do one little "poof" of steam, but nothing else! This is so disappointing because other than this, it seems to be a great product for the price!

I have used it for about a week. I got the hang of it quickly. My only complaint is that the espresso does not come out hot enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by likecoffee very good for the price
I have that coffee machine since 5 years, and it makes a better coffee than a lot of expensive espresso machine

Rated 2 out of 5 by Brit12345 Wouldn't recommend
My boyfriend and I bought this machine 3 months ago. About a month ago, the espresso started smelling really funny when it was brewing. When we first got the machine, it worked great and only took a couple minutes. Now it takes forever because the espresso comes out one drop at a time. The steaming part of the machine doesn't move, which makes it somewhat difficult to use.
You get what you pay for, and with this being the cheapest option out there, I can't complain too much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by stevek The shape of the control & water knobs are useless
I bought the ECM160 4 days ago and set it up to use last night. I noticed right away that the knobs were very unusual shape. When I went to use the machine this morning it became quite obvious that the shape of the knobs make this espresso machine totally useless. I can't even imagine any manufacturer doing this when there was no reason whatsoever to not make them round, hex shaped, knurled, or anything but the way they made them smooth, sloped, and convexed so you can't grab hold of them.
