Hamilton Beach 40729

 

The Hamilton Beach 40729 is a great commercial-style espresso machine. It uses 15 bars of pressure to force the steaming water through the espresso grounds to create a great cappuccino. Because it offers 1100 watts of power, you won't have to waste...

This espresso maker uses ground espresso or pre-measured pods and has a removable water reservoir

It will only allow you to brew up to two cups at one time

This is a good choice for those who like to use pre-measured pods instead of ground espresso beans to make their espresso.

Hamilton Beach Cappuccino Plus Espresso Maker

 

Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

Hamilton Beach 40729 Cappuccino Plus Espresso Maker Silver/Black

 

I'm glad I have one

fast and easy espresso maker, has great pressure and the steamer is easy to work. this is a great espresso maker for the money. I paid around $100 for it when they first came out. I am going to buy another one for the office at work

they strainer cup in the handle comes out after about 6 months of use, not a big problem but just be aware of it. it's just once more part to have to keep up with, it does not effect the performance of the machine

Gets the job done but not eithout shortcomings

 

Makes consistent cups of espresso ; Having the tamper on the scoop rather than integrated into the machine allows easier control of tamping pressure ; Steamer/frother gets the job done, well ; The "cup warmer" is a neat idea. A little slower than using...

I have gone through two machines (one sent back for replacement) due to a leak at the spout between the water tank and the machine. This problem is commonly reported elsewhere on the internet. After the warranty ran out I ended up taking the machine...

This little blender makes short order of mixing eggs, chopping peppers, and making a quick energy shake.
