Die-Cast turned out to be too Die-Fast

Lenok, Amazon
26 July 2014
  • Summary: I loved it at first! -Machine is great stylish-looking -Easy to operate and clean -Makes DELICIOUS coffee drinks; true espresso - black and strong. I barely used/use any fancy features: occasional latte maybe- haven't used any of the programmable features. No complaints at first- used it, enjoyed.

Solid product well worth it.

  • Summary: This is my second unit, the first one lasted many years and went bad due to my mistake - tried to run it on an unregulated gas generator, had to have my coffee! It is solid and looks great, not cheap like many of the more expensive units.

Garbage, gives up totally after about 7 months.

Consumer Advocate, Amazon

  • Summary: This thing was a beauty, both in performance an appearance. Then suddenly it would stop heating during brew. The heating indicator light would come on, but the heater itself would not. If you shut it down, and restarted the hearter would once again engage for ONE cycle.

Breville Espresso Machine

  • Summary: The machine worked for nine monthe past the one year warranty before breaking and the repairs would cost between $150 and $200. The problem is with the circuit board or boiler control panel and the defect seems to be somewhat common judging from the results of a web search.

Breville 800 ESXL

  • Summary: I've had this about 2 years now, and I've used it extensively. For the price its about the best one I've seen. I use this one in my office, and I have an older Rancilio Sivia (similar to ) at home which is WAY better than this, but in a whole different price range.
