Summary: Like ESE Pods? Me too, they're perfect, your coffee stays fresh until the day you use it. So I bought this machine to make them. It has a double pod holder so I used it. Can it make a double cup with ESE pods? NO! Does DeLonghi share this critical information with us? NO! Am I happy? NO!!!!!!!!
Summary: The machine is not usable. After the first cup of expresso was made, it would not make any more cups of expresso and it had a continuous leak at the bottom of the drip tray but the water flow would not drain out of the two holes at the bottom of the drip tray, instead it over flowed all over the...
Summary: I've had this machine four months now and the pressure has given out. As well, mine leaks just like many others have reported. On the plus side, until now, I was able to get excellent espressos out of it. Also, the frothing wand works well and has high pressure. There are many minuses.
If you like floods on your countertop this machine is for you.....

Summary: Got it on time, beautiful design, great price, easy to operate! Can't wait to sing it's praises...but wait, where is all the water coming from? The tank is secure, but there is a HUGE amount of water coming from the inside, especially when the steam button is pushed.
Summary: I hate to rain on the positive review parade - but this machine isn't worth 5 stars (maybe 4, depending on the price you get it for). I'd like to note that I'm not a coffee snob - I use milk and some form of sweeter in every coffee I make.
Summary: Great expresso; 3-4 months later off-on switch failed--ok, just unplugged it since have no service center within 120 miles. 7 months later the expresso button fails--have to hold it with a wooden spoon to get it to fuction.
Summary: I think that much of this machine is attractive and durable. However, the "weak links" can be catastrophic for the machine, as others have noted. Ours was used correctly for only two days before we ended up with a flood of water on our counter (and the machine no longer working).
Summary: The espresso machine came soaking wet inside it's plastic bag. Turns out the water deposit had water in it. By looking at the box you could see stains that showed previous leaking, do they inspect items before shipping?
