The black base, and especially under the drip tray, is also unmarked and clean. It comes up to pressure quickly, and does not lose any steam. It then sits there quietly, occasionally turning on again to get the water to just the right temperature, and then uses virtually no power. The mechanical action to force the water through the coffee is very smooth.There are 2 baskets and a tamper. You can froth milk for a cappuccino using the steam wand. It can be kept in tip-top condition by cleaning the metalwork with a slightly oily rag. Occasionally, it benefits from a descale using 50/50 water and distilled malt vinegar. A drop of oil on the lever bearings keep it working smoothly.
