Hi all!

I am buying a Crossland CC1 from Craigslist for around $350. The owner says it's a few years old, mostly used on weekends, and backwashed every few months with no problems. What else should I ask or consider? This will be my first espresso machine, so I'm looking for something I can rely on.

There is also a 2014 Rancilio Silvia without a PID for the same price and the owners seem to be a bit more trustworthy by adding extras like cups, tampers, frothing jugs and such. I feel that buying a separate PID would squeeze this out of my budget.
