Energy usage

 

This uses about 150kWh of power in standby mode, so it will cost you an additional $40 per year in power costs when compared to other models. I have to use a separate power switch to avoid this issue. Other than that, it makes coffee which tastes good....

This is my 5 1/2 year on update. It seems that if you buy the extended warranty it will last! Still

 

It works OK for about a year. Coffee OK but not fantastic. Milk froths OK most times once you have the hang of it.

First one died after 11 months when the pump lost pressure - could have been left with a lemon if it lasted the 12 month warranty. After 3 weeks at the repair place we got a letter from Sunbeam to get a replacement from retailer. Bought an extended...

Had our machine for five years and it continues to go well

 

Just about to replace my second group head seal but that is the only issue that we have had with the machine. It is cleaned regularly and continues to deliver good coffee. Frother works well but can clog if you don't clean it after each use but that is...

Slow, but good coffee

 

I bought the Sunbeam based on the rating in Choice Magazine. The machine generally works well, though it takes a long time for the steam wand to heat up. The rubber seal in the group head tends to wear out and there is only one place in Canberra to buy...

Easy to use, very nice coffee

It takes a long time for the steam wand to warm up. It would be better if it warmed up at the same time as the coffee machine

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

Dissappointed, it offered so much but was erratic in it's performance.

 

just pump all the water through the bypass and out onto the bench. The cost of fixing the Appliance when we live in regional Qld just didn't stack up so we turfed it, much to our sons disappointment, as the price he paid was at the high end of his...

Style and features

Erratic performance, couldn't be trusted to deliver a coffee without nursing it through the process.

Still going well...

 

Just an update on my previous review. After 2 years this machine is still going well. All I have had to do is replace the rubber seal on the group head a few times and that's pretty much it. I have made 2-4 coffees every day since I bought the machine...

5000 cups in 7 years

 

long time, especially one subjected to daily use. And it's still in production! I'm 50/50 as to whether I get the same machine or maybe go for a more expensive model. I think it will be one of these.

Very very consistent. Simple to use. Reliable and long lasting.

Great Machine

 

I have had a machine for over a year and have been extremely impressed with the ease of use and the good taste & quality of coffee it produces. It requires a little bit of skill which is easily learnt and you have to start with good coffee. I rarely...

You can make the coffee as strong or weak or frothy or not...just as you like it.

Cup warmer stays on but I just turn the power switch off and it stops using electricity.

Avoid

 

Coffee tasted great at first, but after less than one year filters clagged up and had to be replaced. After 18 months coffee started tasting terrible. This happened even though I usually made only one espresso per day, never tried the milk option, and...

Inexpensive

Hard to clean properly. Needs frequent replacement parts.

Not happy Jan

 

I purchased this recently as a gift for my partner and we are definitely not happy with the product. I don't know if it is broken or if that is how the machine works but there is no automated self stop on the coffee/water pour. As an amateur coffee...

No automated pour stop, results in terrible tasting coffee
