Start every day with it

 

Great machine. It's given me many years of great coffee but, like any appliance, you've got to learn to use it properly and look after it ... regular cleaning tablets and water filter changes, keep filter baskets clean, keep steam wand unblocked,...

Great machine - some small issues

 

Have had this machine for 7 years and I am now looking at having to replace it. I have been lucky not to have had any real issues with it. The only thing I was disappointed with was leaking. The overflow from the machine didn't always run into the drip...

Best machine I've owned so far!

 

I have tried a lot of different coffee machines from a lot of different brands over the years & this one is by far the best. It's hard to make a bad coffee with this machine! The coffee extracts with a nice crema & the milk frothing wand is excellent!...

Good but some issue!

 

Bought this machine brand new form ebay 2 months ago. It's quite easy to use it if you follow the instructions book. However there's some electrical issue. The machine somehow can turn on by itself and making a mess with water flowing. Been trying to...

Horrible - waste of money

 

I purchased this machine in September 2015 upon the recommendations of a friend. I was going to get a Breville, which I should have done. My Sunbeam leaks constantly, it takes me ages to get the group handle into the group head. Water also squirts out...

Three strikes and I am out of Sunbeam

 

Purchased last December, died after five weeks. Replaced January, lasted seven weeks. Replaced again in April and this time lasted four weeks. Apparently problems with their pressure pumps and the circuit boards. I purchased this product because we...

life span not impressive

 

Purchased two sunbeams over the years. The heater for the milk lasted one year. was replaced and broke down after an other year, did not bother to fix for $200.00 a fix. Quality of coffee went backwards over the years. Lost of leaks over the years,...

Brilliant coffee machine,very happy

 

This coffee machine is fabulous. It's very easy to use and makes consistently good coffees unlike our gaggia coffee machine . We bought the sunbeam grinder separately and they were perfectly together. The double boiler appealed to us also. Simple to...

Consumer review by: Peet (productreview.com.au)

Decent coffee but poor design.

 

Makes ok coffee, pressure gauge not accurate, more of a toy, it always points to the same mark, regardless of grind, stamp or other variables. Leaks and leaks and leaks. I had it fixed for AU $130 at Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast, however after 3...
