Service is terrible, Just hope it does not need repairs


After a few years water started to bypass to the drip-tray and took the machine to the repairer. This is now 8 weeks ago, Still have to wait another 2 months for parts! A call to the service center has not helped much either, promises but no action.

Delonghi Magnifica S Coffee Machine - Great machine.


There's nothing better than a coffee machine that grinds fresh beans and spits out a good long or short black, then all you have to do is heat the milk in the 15 bar frothier, depending on your style. The machine heats up nice n quick also.

Great unit, great coffee


Purchased as Christmas gift for my mother, and she is insanely happy with it so far. Makes great coffee and is easy to use. Only annoying thing is learning what all the lights and icons mean. Have had to descale once in 3 months so far and is running...

Great so far!


I was a little concerned with purchasing a automated machine as we have always had a manual one, but have been quite impressed with this machine. And its not fully automated - you still have to manually froth the milk using a nozzle and jug (jug not...

Piece of absolute junk!!!!!!


Broke after one week of use. Do not buy this piece of junk. There is obviously a reason why this is now heavily discounted.

It's not the machine I would have brought....but


My Husband purchased it as a surprise present. I probably would have gone for a more manual machine like one of the Sunbeam or Breville ones. With the Delonghi Magnifica S we didn't have the best start, out of the box it leaked water (probably from an...

My long awaited coffee machine...


I love the Magnifica, S ... I researched coffee machines about 2 years ago, whilst I had a Senseo since 2010, the life of which was about 2 years and I bought a subsequent Senseo in 2012... they make wonderful coffee. I had a wonderful fairly fuss free...

Decent machine for the price


I've waited 6 months before writing a review so that I give it a chance. It gets used about 6 times a week and after some initial struggles getting the dose and grind into a decent balance, I am satisfied with the coffee it makes. It does not have all...

Cleaning alarm.


I received this machine as gift from my adult children. The first machine showed the cleaning required light on, every time I turned the machine on. I had the machine replaced and the second machine is doing exactly the same thing. I will be returning...

4th Machine in 9 months


I purchased this machine in the Christmas Sales in January 2014. Within a few days of use when I went to power the machine on it failed to do so and instead was showing an alarm light indicating from the manual that the machine is very dirty and needs...
