Brand NEW KitchenAid Pro Line Espresso Machine -- $250 New, never used, never turned on condition though I don't have the original box. Complete with all accessories including the excellent instruction manual and DVD, ss steaming pitcher, plastic tamper and single and double baskets. Die cast metal construction with silver pearl metallic finish. Quick-heating dual boilers; so you can brew and steam at the same time without any temperature fluctuation. Chrome-plated brass brew group and commercial sized 58mm portafilter. Rotating frothing arm & steam dial to froth milk, steam water for lattes or cappuccinos. Drip-Free system with a 3-way solenoid valve that instantly depressurizes the machine after brewing to eliminate dripping and wait time between shots. Brew temperature stability and abundant steam for frothing with no wait time between functions. 15-Bar Pump Stainless steel filter baskets & rail. Cup Warmer on top. Dual pressure gauges - one to monitor brewing temperature and one to monitor steaming temperature. 2-liter water reservoir. Drip tray full indicator with a water-level sensor to prevent overflow. Stainless steel drip plate & frothing pitcher. The machine can use ESE sized prepackaged pods or freshly ground coffee. My machine is identical to the one in this picture. Dimensions: Height: 16" Width: 12.4" Depth: 12.5" Weight: 30 lbs Some consumer reviews of this machine could be found here: http://coffeegeek.com/reviews/consum...aidproespresso To the best of my knowledge the machine is built by Gaggia in Italy. Still under Kitchenaid free replacement warranty until at least November 2009. The machine used to retail for $899 for a couple of years, recently the retail price was lowered to $450-$499. I am asking $250. Will consider trades for a new KitchenAid 600 stand mixer. The machine could be picked up in Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Staten Island. Delivery arrangements are a possibility. I'd rather sell it locally but will ship at buyers expense which be another $35-$40 due to size and weight of the machine. I'll throw in free couple of weeks of technical support by email to sweeten the deal.
