Summary: We bought one of these new in a box from a discount place with no refunds. It worked for a few months then the coffee pot stopped working. Espresso still works but this is a big item for only making espresso. I looked on line for help and most places said it was the thermo fuses under the pot.
Summary: We purchased the coffee maker last Christmas, and here it is only a few days before Christmas and the coffee maker just died. So, we paid almost $200 at the time and didn't even get one year out of it. Very disappointing.
Summary: Not a good design.. Water leaks from the button every brew, not a defect but because of the options to remove water tank.. Water can escape from the fittings, I have to wipe every time..also filter always gets miss align during brew no matter how much u set them nice and perfect..
Summary: I originally received this as a gift about a year and a half ago. I use the latte maker about one to four times a month, and only used the coffee maker when I had guests over. Probably six times total.
Summary: I received this product as a gift. The espresso feature was appealing and made a good cup of coffee, however, I have only used the maker for 16 months until it quit. I trouble shot the heating element and thermal protection circuit and those items passed.
Excerpt: I love DeLonghi. They really know how to do espresso makers right. My first espresso machine was a DeLonghi and I have been buying DeLonghi ever since. Even thought they are not made in Italy, the machines are durable and last for many years.
