Big bubbles - not creamy, textured milk!

The milk texturing is disastrous! The silly panarello attachment makes big bubbles and there is no way of just using the steam arm with the small hole as it is too short to fit into the jug!
Overall, it looks pretty and is a nice simple machine for those who could not be bothered having to control factors to get a great coffee but if you want a really good coffee save your money and buy a Rancillio Miss Silvia or a Sunbeam for half the price!
+ Looks nice and is quiet.
- Expensive. Worst fault is the steam arm which cannot make decent textured milk even if you have a lot of experience in doing so due to the panarello attachment at the end which looks terrible since it is plastic.
