Consumer review by: Dannii (

Expensive Piece of Rubbish!


mments weren't such a big deal). -The milk comes out at approx. 40-43C (just 'slightly warm') so I have to microwave my 'hot' chocolate EVERYTIME! When this 'slightly warm' milk is mixed with hot coffee, it's ok (just acceptable) if you drink it...

Absolute piece of garbage.


Worked fine up until a descale. Now it's stuck on descale. I've run step 2/2 about 5 times. Filled it with maximum water. Keeps asking me to do it... Turned it off at the wall and left for half an hour. Back into descale mode... Rang the 1300 number...

Needy machine


Upgrade to this from a Royal Deluxe as it was getting a bit old. Cant say we are impressed. This thing needs so much daily - hourly maintenace compared to our old machine. Seriously this could not be used in an office as it has to be emptied and filled...

Brilliant machine


We are coffee crazy at home and wanted a machine that produced quality coffee and milk. For true coffee drinkers the optimum beverage temp is around 55-60 degree celcius which is just what the machine does, although some like steaming milk which we do...

Do Not Buy This Machine!


th a full refund and was then foolish enough to buy another one with exactly the same problem. "Customer (I do not) Care" told me to take it back to the same local service center....... Do not waste your money on this machine.

The best I have owned


I have had automatic coffee machines before but this is by far the best. It makes a lovely hot cappachino. A lot of different strengths and settings can be individualised for various users. If I had to pick a fault I would say the drip tray needs to be...

Endless problems...terrible service


demand replacement. They then ignored me, and after I mentioned Consumer Law said I had no right to anything other than repair which is illegal. They also tried to claim it was out of warranty (just over a year), even though fault arose in first year...

Endless problems...terrible service


Bought this machine and initially loved it....nice style, easy coffees (especially if using the smaller tubes which make hotter milk), good coffee. However, it started making random coffees or pouring out hot water/steam..without any button being...

Worst coffee machine ever and terrible customer service!


Absolute waste of money. The temperature of the coffee and milk doesn't get above 50 degrees so when we have to warm it further in the microwave. When we rang customer service they basically couldn't care less didn't want to help and were just laughing...
