Would you expect this machine would be throw away after 4 yrs.

 

Worked well for 4 yrs normal use then it stopped working. Took it in for repair told part no longer available, throw it in the bin. I loved this machine, it was quick to make a good coffee although I could never get the coffee hot enough. I think a...

Don't even think about it !

 

This product has an engineerIng fault with its steam stem. I had my ec860m for a total of 6 months and in that time, did nothing but argue with DeLonghi & their repairer. Finally got a full refund but only after contacting Consumer Affairs. Would NEVER...

Lovely cappuccino Machine to my morning : )

 

The cappuccino is perfect! Highlight of my morning for a hot expresso and it is quick and clean. Frothed milk container creates perfect froth every time. The new love of my life besides my dog.

Good machine overall

Great machine but takes a little while to figure out

 

This machine is pretty good but it takes a little while to figure out how to get the best coffee out of it. I got a lot of extras with mine so I was pretty happy overall. It flashes the red light often without knowing why it is doing it and that can be...

Love this machine - can't live without it now!

 

). And although it is automatic, you can adjust the settings to your preference, and make this the default so you get the same cup every time - perfect! That is, you can adjust the machine to make the coffee hotter or stronger than the default, or...

Easy to use, easy to clean, quick and uncomplicated.
