Summary: We bought the caffe figaro unit about six or seven years ago. broke the carafe and replaced it and am back for a replacement filter this time. Very surprised at people's low reviews... our brews every morning without any problems.
Summary: The espresso maker on this one is awesome. I love the milk frothing mechanism. Mine took the temperature just fine. The coffee maker is fine. It has a water filter and everything. The problem with this model is that it is priced highly but it is cheaply made.
Summary: had the same one previously, also from Ebay. Great price. Old one died, could not find a replacement @ the store, plus selections were very expensive, so compromise was out of the question. Enter Ebay, and I have my figaro again.
Summary: We included this item on our wedding registry and were excited when we received it as a gift. However, after only 2 months use, the plastic basket holder broke off. After much time, I found it impossible to repair.
Summary: I registered for this machine for my wedding. Within 6 months it was fried. The red power light started blinking and wouldn't stop and then finally it just wouldn't turn on. DeLonghi said that I had to send it out for repair even though it was under warranty.
