Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

  1. Is there a fix. I have the same problem. The threads strip where the metal end of the frother screws to the plastic wand. I tried using two o rings and that didn’t, work. The wand should have a metal female connection

    This machine, if tested only once, deserves this rating. However, if used everyday for just 30-45 days the user quickly learns of the machines fatal flaw… the steam nozzle begins to leak steam from the top of the nozzle where it screws onto the metal connector coming from the machine. The silicon band wrapped around the metal connector to prevent leakage doesn’t hold up over just 30-45 days of regular (1-2 coffees per day) use. For a US$200-300 machine depending on which country you’ve purchased it in… I don’t think this is value for money… personally I don’t want to return my machine for maintenance (like I have been doing since December when I bought the machine based on this review) every 30-45 days. Would be nice to warn others of this issue…
