Cons: Design is, unfortunately, the biggest con of this machine. Using the machine without cleaning in for a prolonged period of time can cause air bubbles to creep in, and coaxing them out does take some time and effort. Apart from it, SS-700 just works fine.

Also, since the pump is littler stronger than K45, it is a little louder. It doesn’t replace your conventional coffee makers but does a fine job in serving you with a quick cup of coffee without any mess.
