Although cost might seem expensive it truly is worth every penny. Lots of features etc and makes brilliant coffee using beans or ready ground. Can't fault it. Brilliant.

Excellent machine


This machine is nice, but I am unsure it is worth more than the price I paid for it (600$).

Excellent machine: water is very hot, and steam is quite powerful. Very satisfied. It makes excellent coffee

Not super easy to use. My wife and my mother-in-law are having problems understanding how this machine works. It is true that the machine complains often (an ambiguous red light pops, saying either "no water", "no coffee" or "empty the trash") ; Newegg...

Machine is good! Newegg is not!


Machine is good for the price. paid 609 ; The reason i got it, was because of the 5 year warranty that newegg said it came with

After receiving the machine, and reading the warranty card. it stated that the delonghi 5400 only came with a 2 year warranty. I checked the newegg site and they changed it back to 2 years ; I called into newegg the lady was rude and basically told me...

Excellent Lattes


That being said, none of the cons would change my decision to buy. I would definitely watch the DVD first (I know, I know, you can't wait to make your first coffee!) I, too, took advantage of the sale price of $599.

Well, I finally bit the bullet and bought a cool espresso machine, after years of a cheap mr. coffee device. This machine is awesome, to say the least. Instant hot water, steam, espresso...and the greatest part, is that you can make one cup after...

1. Mine also had the defect look in the top which does not effect anything ; 2 The stainless steel drip plate was also scratched (even though it was covered with plastic) ; 3 I agree with other reviewers for this product: the controls are very outdated...

Worth the money


Wasn't it written 5 years warranty on the Newegg product page a couple weeks ago ? Maybe I misread.

Fully automatic ; Very hot water ; Easy to use and makes excellent coffee ; Overall excellent product at a fair price (609$)

None that I can see for now other than my product has an imperfection in the top plastic which is only visible at light. Not a big issue

DeLonghi ESAM 5400 Perfecta


I researched several super-automatics and am very happy I purchased this model. I should mention that the $600 sale price is why I decided on this model.

Makes great coffee, Looks good on the counter, Easy to clean

Very loud when turning on and in use, takes up a lot of counter space, electronic display could be more user-friendly
