Turned it on for the "1st TIME" after we bought it and it wouldn't work - no water coming through

 

We have had the previous amodo mio premium by saeco for about 5 years. When we moved to Singapore in 2012 we took our coffee machine with us, and discovered you can't buy these capsules in Singapore. So every couple of months we would order the the...

Great tasting coffee from sub-standard machine

 

Our machine is 6 months old and recurrent problems are representing. A demonstration of the machine outside Myer Doncaster persuaded us to replace our perfectly functional Aldi machine with the Electrolux ELM5400, because the coffee taste was so much...

Disappointed

 

I like a Flat white and find that the frother is awful - if I could disconnect the rotten thing I would! All I ask is for hot milk not froth everywhere! Help ! love the coffee- hate the machine. I had the small one before this and loved it, the steamer...

Was given the machine on 23/08 for birthday present from daughter and have not been able to get a decent cup of coffee from it as yet. I have rinsed it out numerous times but still get a Burning electrical smell and taste from the machine and coffee. I...

Where to start, Well when my wife came home with this coffee pod machine and told me how much she had paid ($300), I near fell over and said take it back. Then I tried the machine for myself and fell in love with it, couldn't believe that a pod machine...

Put Off By Intermittent Heating problem

 

I purchased this machine last November and for 6 months worked great and I was very happy with it. Then it started intermittently not heating the milk. Sometimes it would work, then other times the milk would be either cold or lukewarm. Took it to the...

When it works properly it is very good

When it does not work properly just get used to using the microwave.

2 Machines broken within 6 months

 

Our first machine stopped heating milk within the first 6 months. We had to take it to a repairer, firstly they wanted me to send it to one 1500km away, and eventually I was allowed to take it to a local dealer. It was there for 3 months, whilst they...

Milk froths nicely when working

Machine breaks easily, difficult warranty service

Have had this unit for approx 8mths, been at the repair agent twice in that time, both times with a faulty milk frother. Was told both times that I had used it incorrectly as this was the first time they had heard of it, but other reviewers reported...

Great pod machine, excellent coffee

 

I tossed up between this and the nespresso as they were around the same price. Went to 2 shops and both recommended the quality of coffee from Lavazza as used in this machine. I also liked that it had an auto power off and the frother part is...
