I have had two of these machines. Makes good espresso, but unreliable product. First machine blew up: internal short- circuit burned out the electrics. Second machine pump failed just outside warranty. No doubt the very expensive DeLonghis are reliable...

Good for one or two cups at a time, but no more

  (Rating Hidden)

I use this occasionally (although I'd expected to use it more) because the whole process is a bit long-winded. By the time I've set it up to make a cappuccini I find I drink the coffee pretty quickly and then have to clean the machine. It takes twice...

I previously had a very cheap (and cheerful) Russell Hobbs espresso machine which was a bit slow but otherwise good. Thought the De Longhi would be better. It was awful. To get enough coffee for two cappuccinos I had to fill the large holder twice to...

Style over Substance

Purchased in June 2012 and have used it twice - both times a disappointing result. Switching it on, only 2 lights instead of 3 come on for the self test and continuously flash. A very feeble crema and unable to produce enough steam to heat milk for a...

Good Flavour, Temperamental Machine

  (Rating Hidden)

Purchased in December 2011. The machine produced a very rich, frothy coffee however our machine in particular seemed to be fairly faulty. The drip rate was inconsistent at best and non-existant at worst. We have now returned the machine and wait to see...

" This is our second machine as the seal went on the other after 4 months - we were so pleased with the machine that is why we have given a second one a go - the water tank is pulled out from the front which is brilliant as all our others were at the...

Nearly perfect

 

" I would recommend this machine, it makes a decent cup of coffee and is easy to use but the instructions could be better as I have had to consult youtube for tips on how best to froth the milk and so on but overall it's a great little machine and good...

An excellent machine!

 

This espresso machine is superb, it's so easy to use and produces better than shop bought coffee as the operator can regulate the strength of the coffee to their own taste. It has easy to use features and is set up in no time. I would recommend this...
