Moreover, it also has a reputation as being harder to operate than the more inexpensive espresso makers. Why is this espresso maker expensive and why is it difficult to use?
The reason why it’s expensive is because it’s made from very sturdy and high quality materials. All of its parts are made of stainless steel, chrome, and brass.
Why brass? Using brass helps maintain the optimal temperature and also helps with heat distribution, which is a very crucial component when making perfect espresso. This stainless steel espresso maker is eye-catching and will definitely stand out in anyone’s kitchen.

Is this stainless steel espresso maker really hard to use? It has four operating buttons. The large central button is the power button. When you switch it on, the orange light beside it will become lit and it stays lit until the unit has reached the optimal temperature.
From here, there are three control buttons that you can toggle. The first button is the espresso button. Toggle it to get rich and flavorful espresso. Switch it off when you have the amount that you want. The second button is the hot water button.
Toggle it and open the steam valve knob, and hot water gushes out from the steam wand. The last button is the steam button. Toggle it when you’re making cappuccinos and lattes. Wait until the light goes off then open the steam valve and start frothing milk.
