Great machine


After my trusty Breville died, I decided to try my daughter's brand of coffee machine and went for a Delonghi Scultura. Well! I couldn't fit any of my cups under the thing, when I switched it on, it switched itself off without warning after about 20...

Our third coffee machine runs rings around our previous two!


Prior to this we had a $700 bodum machine and a Krups machine. The Bodum was unreliable and the Krups one only had room for an espresso cup! We bought the Breville in 2010 (maybe earlier) and it hasn't missed a beat. In 2014 replaced the ring that goes...

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


Originally bought our machine in 2009 and loved it for years. Solid machine, made great coffee, really easy to use. One return under warranty when the pump died 12mths in (replaced for new at the retailer) and another return to the manufacturer for a...

Still works great after 7 years


Received this for my birthday, and still going strong. (Looks the same as the 800ES) Most of the time I use it, give it a quick wipe and that's it. Today I took it apart for a major clean, as its Christmas. Bit of rubber is wearing out where the...

Good coffee :-)


Have had this about 6 months & am pretty happy with it. Not sure of yhe model, but bought in feb, march 2014). Makes great coffee if you get all the elements right! As with all espresso machines, this is variable, depending on the barista, the milk...

Looks great! Good, sturdy construction. Good price

Uses heaps of water

Great until I found out what's important in brewing espresso


Build quality: excellent! I mean, die cast stainless?? The weight of the thing too! Performance: let down by the thermoblock. I am of the understanding that the water temperature has to be consistent throughout the brew and so I opened the machine and...

Looks good, built well, solid.

The thermoblock is just not the right water heating system for this level of machine.

Solid, reliable machine. Makes great coffee


I have had this machine for a few years, bought it as a reburbished factory second - its great! makes awesome coffee. Top tip - try and get the single wall basket from breville for superior crema. The best thing is it is solidly made, and if something...

Cheap, solid reliable

pretty good


My brother got me this for Christmas. I find it easy to use and isn't to bulky on my kitchen bench. Makes a pretty good coffee id say! Only thing i can say that it does take a little longer to heat the water up than what my old machine did. But i still...

easy to use

Good home coffee


We use this machine at home. With my skills I can't make a coffee with this machine quite as good as our favourite cafe, but it's pretty good for an amateur. Our machine is a few years old and has had plenty of use but it still pumps just as good as new.

Strong and reliable, never gives any problems.

Cleaning is a pain, but I imagine they all are.
