I am always weary of complicated kitchen gadgets, but my love for espresso and coffee drinks prompted me to invest in this machine. I have not been disappointed! My kitchen is now the source of happiness for the many coffee-lovers in my life! Brew Performance The Saeco Magic Comfort is adaptable to different sizes and tastes. Since it is so easy to use, each person can pick his or her favorite setting to brew their favorite coffee. Ease of Cleaning This machine is very easy to clean, despite the instructions being a little sparse. Ease of Use I am not very patient or handy, but this espresso machine was very intuitive to use. Temperature, quality of coffee and size were easy to manipulate for my convenience. Design The design is great, but not overly different from many other espresso machines. Durability So far it seems to be very durable. We are careful with it and keep it clean as recommended, but it definitely feels sturdy and long-lasting.
