Urgently looking for an ESPRESSO MACHINE under $400 that isn't complete junk!

Hi Slickdealers,

I need your help finding a wedding gift for my friend, an espresso machine! She loves the stuff, and I thought it would be a very unexpected gift to give.

The problem is that I know NOTHING about espresso machines - except for the fact that I know more expensive = better. All of the machines I have looked at around the $400 price range have decent reviews, but then there are the bad reviews - "broke in less than a year", "it's ok for the price and makes a decent cup, but if your serious about espresso then look elsewhere", "don't buy this piece of junk, spend another $200 and get __________"....you get the idea.

I understand that "$400" and "top-of-the-line espresso maker" don't belong in the same sentence, but I'm sure that "Around $400" and "good espresso maker" do.

we had good luck with the breville unit typically at 499. might try a bed bath store to check availability and use their 20 % coupon. doing that today on a breville food processor there. stock seems to vary by store a bit.
