Excerpt: Used this coffee maker as a guest in my brother's home. Loved it and now want to buy one.Brew PerformanceExcellent coffeeEase of CleaningI have not cleaned this machine.Ease of UseIt is quite easy to move from ground coffee to the pre-measured cups.
Excerpt: This is a great coffee machine, has several sizes to choose from, though I choose the second to biggest in brew size because the size options are pretty vast in difference once poured. I love how fast it brews and the ease of cleaning and refilling.
Summary: We purchased this unit December 2010. If you had asked me a year ago, I would have given this a 5 star rating - it worked really well and we loved it for the first year. Then it started to make different sounds and started acting up. We did regular de-scaling, only used filtered water, etc.
Great single cup coffee machine. A little pricey but well worth

Excerpt: I bought the Breville 700 after returning a Keurig. I find it user friendly and it makes a decent cup of hot coffee.DesignLooks great on the counter and is mostly stainless steel. The handle is the only plastic part.DurabilityHad a problem with my first one.
Summary: The first unit lasted 9 months. Received a replacement unit since it was still in warranty. The replacement unit died after 16 months and is no longer covered by a warranty. For the price, I expected it to last at least 4 to 5 years. We love the machine, but the quality is totally unacceptable.
Summary: Don't get me wrong. The Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single-Cup Coffee Brewer is my second K-Cup coffeee maker. My Keurig K-Cup brewer died on me after about a year and I replaced it with my Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single-Cup Coffee Brewer.
Excerpt: This is the best coffee maker! I was a bit skepitical and this machines ability to make a decent cup of coffee when I first received the machine. I was soon convinced that any and every coffee drinker needed this machine!
Summary: So if you're reading this you're probably wondering if it's really worth the extra $150 or so to get the brushed metal, sturdiness, extra quiet and nifty digital display and blue-light in the water tank.
Summary: I'm so frustrated. We've had our Breville for over a year now and have put up with consistent water leakage problems. Now that it also isn't working all the time, I'm done. I've written to Breville customer service three times, no response.
Excerpt: I won this coffee maker in a raffle at my company. It's one of the best prizes that I have won. To make a cup you just insert a k-cup into the holder, choose your size and press brew. After the cup isa done brewing you just throw out the k-cup and enjoy your coffee. There is very little maintenance.
