Nice Coffee..Bad build qualtiy


I "purchased" my machine though a employee rewards scheme just less than year ago and now is making horrible noises (It appears to be due to the inability to vent the excess pressure to the drip tray instead trying to vent through the head) Being...

Simple to use (12 year old Grand-daughter made great coffees with ease)

It's unlikely I would buy another Sunbeam product after reading the opinions listed here. I had a Seaco that cost around 1400aud new, and it lasted for a decade. My sunbeam is not a year old.

Easy to use, good size and makes an excellent brew for the first few months.

I make two cups p/day only; one a single cup, the other using the commercial cup. Our machine began to be unable to make sufficient pressure on the commercial cup, and is now struggling to reach pressure on the single cup. I've cleaned the group head...

I've had two of these mahines, both bought second hand. The first worked solidly for 7 years, making 4-5 double shot espressos a day without any servicing other than an occaisional clean of the head filter. It was until it was left in storage for 3...

The machine was relativley cheap to buy and worked well for a while. It make a great cup of coffee.

The warranty is not long enough and and when you find out these problems the customer service does not want to know you even going to consumer affairs can't do any thing for you !!!!! buyer beware Ld Belmont

The only pros that it looks good sitting on the bench when visitors come

turn it on it take a long time to heat up,the over flow tray is corroding and after you make any coffee there is always water leaking out on the bench

Although I do not own a Sunbeam coffee machine (I have a 3 year old SAECO which has not missed a beat). However I can contribute to the forum by letting you all know that I purchased 2 Sunbeam products (blender PB9500, mixmaster MX8900) 6 months ago...

I will never buy sunbeam again, especially coffee machines. It was an expensive lesson, $500.00 for a machine that was broken and getting replaced or fixed more often than I actually used it. It still looks brand new sitting in it's box and I keep...

It makes a great coffee

I have had it replaced 4 times each time something new breaks on it and now it has run out of warrenty. It is loud and vibrates alot
