Good machine but too fiddly and can't vary the amount of coffee

 

to prime itself, waiting for the beans to grind, then drip out the coffee, then you steam the milk. The tank is small and often needs refilling, ditto the waste grinds often needs emptying, and the lights often flash to tell you do something before you...

Good machine but too fiddly and can't vary the amount of coffee

 

Had this coffee machine for about four years now. It has made thousands of cups and still going strong, though it now has a minor leak at the water tank, which needs fixing. Had it fixed once before under warranty - problem with the steam wand. The...

Amazingly Good - no issues at all

 

Simple operation, I make a medium sized coffee every morning then several over each weekend, refilling water, and emptying dregs and dirty water about once a week. I descale when necessary every 3 months or so - easy with the manual handy and clear...

Makes a nice coffee, but likely to have faults

 

lt it just so happened that a Saeco Rep was Instore at Harvey Norman when I was bringing the machine in for repair. I told her about how many problems we had in the first year and eventually (after more inspections at the service centre) the machine...

Easy to use, good tasting coffee produced.

Too many faults, lack of service centres.

Terrible

 

Easy to use, good crema, nice hot coffee produced.

Temperamental at frothing milk. Small water tank. It's quite a large machine so takes up a lot of bench space. Terrible service when broken - died after 6 wks and took 6 wks to repair only to get it back and have to send it straight back for repair...

Consistant quality and ease of use

 

it from producing a quality cup of coffee. Its been a dependable machine and is still a good producer of coffee. I recommend this appliance as worth a spot on your kitchen bench.

Produces a quality product with little effort from me. Looks good and has aged very well.

Sometimes tells me its full (of spent grounds) when its not. De-scaling is a pain, Not twin boiler (but knew that when I bought it).

Excellent product to operate

 

I bought this for my husband after a lot of research and found this model. It is easy to use and makes great coffee and the frother attachment is good as it comes with an option of a hose if you want to froth jugs of milk. It is quick and you can...

Easy to operate, makes good coffee and froth

Time consuming to clean, can not use flavoured coffee in it

Terrible

 

Could get no response from the 'so-called' Saeco Customer Service centre. I took the brand new machine to an authorised service centre and they advised after 10 days that there was a sticking valve and a cracked pipe!! They ordered that part from Saeco...

Unable to say as it has not made a cup of coffee yet!!

Appalling customer service from Saeco. Brand new out of box and leaked water all over the benchtop!!
