Consumer review by: SB (productreview.com.au)

Lasted about 2yrs of once a week use. You get what you pay for and this is a cheap machine

 

The machine is cheap for a reason, dont expect anything special. Harvey Norman has stopped stocking these now but they do have some left over stock that they are pretty much giving away at cost. The water only gets warm, I would not call it hot at all.

Just burnt my fingers, frothing button melted of

 

First time I used this machine I was very careful to follow the instructions. Waited for coffee to come out, nothing. Saw the light was on suggesting the machine needed to cool. Did the suggested shortcut method to speed up the cooling process, when I...

Very happy so far

 

I bought this from HN a couple of weeks back for $49 and it's been great so far. Compared to my old machine, which was a similarly-low-priced single-boiler thingo that relied on steam pressure and required the whole coffee grinding thing, it makes much...

Good value

 

This machine does everything it is supposed to - it brews coffee and froths milk - and does it well. I have used Map capsules and the cheaper range from Woolworths and they are all acceptable, and some are really good. It takes a while to switch...

Reliable and inexpensive. The built-in steaming wand.

Slow to revert to the coffee brewing mode after using the frother.

Map presto capsule coffee machine - good value

 

I have owned and operated the Map Presto Capsule Coffee Machine on a regular (daily) basis for more than 12 months now - and I'm still impressed and quite satisfied!. This machine is one of the few (for the price) that has a built-in steam frother;...

Excellent value for money, fast, simple to use and reliable; plenty of capsule varieties.

Nothing is wrong with it - just not really suitable for immediate multiple cups in a row!

Piece of junk

 

This is by far the worst machine i have ever used, had it less than a month and the frothing knob melted off. The buttons on top felt horrible to press, the actual machine felt ok when i started using it but thats where it ended. I took it back and get...

Buttons felt cheap, froth knob melted off

Broken part

 

I bought this machine December 2012 from Harvey Norman. It is a great little machine however the part the punches a hole in the pod on the top has broken off and remained in a pod. After looking at the warranty details it looks like this part is not...

great price and easily used

steaming wand useless as it is way to low and you can only fit a very small jug under it to froth milk.
