Harder than a coffin nail!


Absolute blinder of a machine this little one. Do you like your coffee made from beans with none of the snobbery attached?Track this down.As per other reviews this has been smashed more than a cricket ball being bowled at Bradman at its still finding...

What a great little machine


We're on our second machine (the 1st was ruined after a cyclone and replaced) and we love it. it's 5 years old and is used daily and just keeps on giving great cups of coffee. We taste tested some of the pod coffee in a retail store and it just didn't...

Very impressed.


I just bought one of these machines on ebay for $62. I was told that it hadn't been used much but all sellers seem to say that. Got it home and put coffee in it and it was crap, but then I remembered reading that you must make sure the coffee you use...

Sadly she's on her last legs but still going strong!

Solid Entry Level Machine


Got this half price as a replacement for another Breville machine that failed after 2 years was unable to be repaired because it was discontinued and the parts were unavailable. This one is a bit of an upgrade and hasn't missed a beat in the 3 years...

Our third coffee machine runs rings around our previous two!


oo tricky to clean either and a simple float lets you know when the drip tray is full. If you forget to refill the water it just growls at you and it's so solid that when it does finally blow up I'll probably use it as a car stand. I would buy another...

Leaks and peeling and corroding


pointless because the whole outer skin needs replacing. It is now such an ugly mess that we cant look at it anymore as guests often mention its flaking paint. I question breville on claims it is stainless steel, its paint and it bubbles and flakes away...

Leaks and peeling and corroding


After much research we settled on this model, as an entry level start but we are so disappointed in it. The coffee is okay but has really diminished in quality after some time. And we have found it leaks water everywhere but worst of all its painted on...

Was a great machine


switch I suspect. We decided it was time to retire the old gal but had always intended to buy another ES as we had been mostly happy with the product. To celebrated her retirement we took her on a 6wk holiday to NZ and ironically she didn't miss a...
