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


The first Odea Giro we purchased nearly 4 years ago had three faults in the first 14 months. We are in Brisbane and the only Saeco recommended repairer was in Loganholme. A long way away from us in north Brisbane. I insisted that Harvey Norman...

Easy to use, good tasting coffee produced.

Too many faults, lack of service centres.

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

Consistant quality and ease of use


I am not a fan of automatic coffee machines, but I have been using this one for a couple of years and I must say its a consistent performer. I have gotten used to the ease of just loading beans in the top, water in the side and cup under spout. I have...

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).

Coffee OK, Reliability Not


This machine makes good coffee - you just need to experiment a lot initially and be prepared for a few taste disasters. Beware if your machine breaks down though!

Quick to make coffee and frothing jug does not need to be held as it can rest on a ledge.

In the first year, it spent more time in the repair shop than at home - most frustrating. We had water leaks 3 times and then the main circuitboard blew up, 3 weeks out of warranty. To their credit, I did not have to pay the $500 for the repair (I...

Makes a good cup


I have used this coffee machine for a while now and really like it. It makes a nice coffee. I can choose how strong I like it and as you have the seperate milk frother you can get the milk as hot as you like, this is good for us because we are a very...

Makes nice coffee, I like that it grinds the beans fresh.

Fairly expensive machine

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!!
