Most Rubbish appliance I have ever purchased

 

It started leaking just after the 12 month warranty and when I took it back to Harvey Norman they said there was no where in New Zealand to service so I needed to just throw it out - great eh?

Machine does not last

 

Bought our machine at the end of November 2013. I have the same problem as other people have noted that the machine is good whilst it lasts but I have also found it doesn't last much more than a year and the guarantee is only valid for 12 months as...

Too Early to Tell

 

While the name and description of the machine implies "Italian/European styling and dependability", the previous reviews and the sub-standard quality of the example I've just purchased (the control panel assembly has been fitted off centre) proves the...

Not too bad for the convenience

Mostly good

 

This is our second machine. The first one was replaced under warranty, but this one is behaving itself better. However, on occasions a red light flashes for no apparent reason and it won't work properly until we fiddle around pressing buttons and...

Very happy with the coffee crema and machine heats up quickly.

Can be unreliable at times.

Terrible. Good For UP to 50 Coffees

 

Purchased 3 June 2012. Made about 40 coffees prior to our departure on an extended overseas holiday. Returned November 2013. Machine made about 5 cups correctly, then seemingly could no longer force water through the Map capsule. Contacted the Map help...

The first few cups

Very short working life. Good for about 50 cups of coffee
