There are so many machines out there, some of which are very involved
and expensive.

Can someone who knows about these things recommend a simple machine
that will produce good results with very little fuss?

You have a choice between a steam driven or a pump driven machine, and
the latter are more expensive. I have tried several reasonably priced
home machines that didn't last, but have had pretty good luck with my
Krupps pump driven machine.
Having been to the repair shop many times with machines, I was advised
that they all break down and parts are hard to get, so if you treat
yourself to a deluxe machine you may find yourself with an expensive
piece of garbage in a year or two.

Our Krups is still going strong after 8 years. My onlyh complaint is
lack of space under the nozzles - room for espresso cups but regular
coffee cups are too tall.
