Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The reservoir is a good sized and easy enough to refill.
Decent espresso for its price
Attractive Stainless Steel, moderately easy to make a beverage.
The Cuisinart EM-100 Espresso Maker is an easy to use countertop appliance.

What reviewers didn't like

The finish and fitting of the drip gives a sub-standard look when compared to the rest of the unit. The lack of adjustable temperature control and pressure gauge are missed, but considering the cost and the fact that the machine makes shots of espresso that are truly coffee house quality, these minor issues are easy to overlook.
Requires you to manually time extraction
Slow to produce more that one beverage- guests must wait, and wait and wait. Beverage temperature is lukewarm, I generally pop it into the microwave to heat it up before drinking. Pitiful customer/warranty service from Cuisinart.
a bit heavy
