Review: Delonghi Magnifica

 

You're really, really hungover and in need of a powerful triple espresso shot just to get through the day. But that journey out to the...

Superb cup warmer. Milk container cleans up nicely and has a large capacity Single push button easily cleans milk container. Good value. Front loading trays are convenient with limited counter space

Milk canister must be removed to gain access to water tank. Grinder loud enough to wake the dead. Very few preset drink buttons. Bean hopper is challenging and awkward to refill

The Way To Go If You Live in Brisbane

 

The machine has been in for maintenance and repairs a couple of times, but completely covered by the warranty and will be covered by the extended warranty in future. The convenience and quality of the fresh coffee bean coffee every day is well worth...

Biggest piece of rubbish

 

Had this coffee machine for 12 months and 4 days when the milk refused to draw up any more. Prior to this the only warm coffee control was latte and even then the froth was half a cup. All the other controls resulted in cold coffee. We packaged it as...

Bad service, cold coffee, no control to heat milk more.

Cheap parts, terrible service

 

Made fine coffee for two years and three weeks. Then three weeks after the warranty ran out, a very flimsy piece of plastic broke. It controls the steam function. It costs about two pounds fifty (5 dollars) in the UK, but $25 in Australia plus a...

Coffee was good until it broke down.

Wrecked by the flimsiest part and terrible service. Why do we put up with such things? No alternative, that's why.

Fabulous Coffee maker

 

I have had my Delonghi for 6 years. Still going strong. Yes it has had a new boiler and some seals, but they were all under Uncle Harvey's extended warranty and servicing was always done in a week at the Geelong service agent. I estimate it has made...

Keeps on chugging.

Fantastic, can't live without it !!

 

We bought our Delonghi Magnifica a few years ago. It has been fantastic and never missed a beat. I make between 6 - 10 coffee's a day and lots more when we have visitors. It is fully automatic, easy to program and adjust. I purchased this particular...

Over it

 

Owned this for 5 years and it has been in the workshop for 12 months of it - stopped working 4 times. I brought an extended warranty with it - thankfully. Never been overworked always cleaned but keeps breaking down and takes months to get the parts,...

Broke down after not very long and too expensive to fix!

 

When we first bought this machine it was around $1800. I wasnt going to buy it as it was too expensive but my husband ended up getting it for around $1500. Still too expensive in my book. Its an extremely noisy machine but for about three years it made...

Coffee was nice when it was configured and working.

It broke!

Nice Machine

 

I bought this a few years ago for my wife since she is a coffeeholic and I don't drink the stuff at all. It was a bit pricey, but has not been any trouble at all until recently a 4-5 year run with no trouble is not bad! Our friends complain that the...

Good coffee, relatively reliable.

Expensive, hard to find a place to fix it, expensive to fix when you find a place, can be a little noisy.
