Product was misrepresented by the seller.

Chris Troise, Amazon

  • Summary: Normally this type of machine comes with 1 double cup filter and handle for the filter and 1 single cup filter and holder for the filter. The seller failed to mention they did not have the double cup filter and holder so now I am stuck with it,I was able to purchase a double cup filter but no holder for it.

  • Summary: THE GROUNDS CONTAINER IS TOO SMALL AND CLUMSY TO CLEAN. MY OLD "STEAM" MACHINE WAS ONLY $50 BUT PERFORMED JUST AS WELL.

disappointed espresso addict

Judith C. Duhl, Amazon
29 June 2010
  • Summary: This is a very disappointing machine. I have owned 3 espresso machines & this one makes the weakest espresso of all. The company did not include the 1 cup filter when I bought it new. There was conflicting advice from DeLonghi Customer Service about the ground of the coffee...my local Caribou Store laughs when I come in, ordering 1/4 lb. of a different grind every day..

Amazingly Great

  • Summary: The title says it all. A expresso maker for the home, that makes a cup of espresso like you would ger at a cafe. The cup of espresso even has a layer of coffee foam on top of the coffee.

LOVE IT!!

  • Summary: This machine is so much better than my Mr. Coffee steam espresso maker. If you're going to buy an espresso maker, make sure it's pump driven. I can make froth so thick that it looks like beaten egg whites! The steam wand is so easy to clean too because it is plastic. The metal steam wants get the milk cooked on to them and are hard to clean. Several friends have Delonghi machines and are happy with theirs.

Ahhh, The espresso machine

seifer75, Ebay
14 March 2008
  • Summary: I bought this espresso machine a few weeks ago and I must say I am impressed. The water container in the back when filled to the max line lasted about a week without refilling it. The Auto Off function is great. It does take some getting use to because I have had it drip water from different areas when it has not been warmed up for the suggested amount of time.

FOUND THE KNACK!

Happy Housewife, Amazon
11 January 2007
  • Summary: I have owned this machine since 3/'04 (!)and thought about getting a new model w/coffee maker. After shopping for a new machine and reading the reviews on this one, I must add my 2 cents. I have figured out how to avoid problems others have had with it and I am very happy with mine. In fact I will not upgrade because the others (w/ coffee maker)are not pump driven unless you spend a fortune. Here is what I do for a great latte: Turn on machine first thing.

Tried twice and it broke down in less than 1 month!!!

Eiad Kassif, Amazon
13 May 2006
  • Summary: This machine makes a great cappuccino. I was very happy at first making several cups a day... Until it blew up (literally, almost) and stopped making steam. I tried again (Seeing that half the reviews were good and half were bad I figured I'd try my luck)... What a surprise... The second one broke in exactly the same way in less than 3 weeks (I had guests over too, so I was very upset).
