A very satisfying bit of equipment

Antony Glynn, Amazon
3 March 2014
  • Summary: This is a very handsome machine, well made and solid; unlike my 3 previous espresso machines it has a professional look about it. The 2 on-off buttons and the main knob are all solid and are positive in action - nothing flimsy or plasticy about them at all, as I have found on previous machines; also, they are on the front - not round the side where you might forget to turn them off.

I love my coffee machine

abigail klapp, Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: This is my second dualit - love the dual functionality of it - have learnt not to use such finely ground expresso and I religiously use the filters ... Last one lasted 5 years but took a lot of abuse - didn't use filters for 2 years, persevered with expresso ground coffee and didn't de-scale - lesson learnt !

Flawed design

toptetra, Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this machine because of it's compact design and smart looks but after 2 weeks I had to send it back. Despite using a pressurized portafilter the Duatit makes a pretty decent espresso, but even with the supplied paper filters it gets blocked all too easily. This resulted in reduced flow and quickly killed the pump. Went for a Gaggia Classic instead and wasn't disappointed.

Well made espresso machine.

  • Summary: Looks great in my kitchen and it makes good coffee. A bit too noisy and the dripping tray is slippery causing cups to slide sideways. there is not enough room for bigger cups.

Dualit coffee machine

DG, Amazon
17 December 2013
  • Summary: I received this as a birthday present to replace my £50 Morphy Richards coffee machine that died (to be fair it lasted 4 years). First the bad - it is fairly noisy and you'd struggle if making more that 2 cups. The good - Once you get into the routine of warming the cup, steaming the milk etc the coffee is superb and it's easy to keep clean. It looks the part too. Going through way too much coffee at the moment!

first return in over 14 years membership

Mr N.B., Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: I have been buying things from Amazon from 1999 with the same account. Sadly, this is the first time I return an item. Even if the look of the machine is great, the quality of the material was less so and it was easy to scratch any part of it. More importantly, the quality of the coffee was poor. I followed the instructions, primed the machine, run a cup of hot water before every coffee and the result was a brew that wasn't hot enough.

Too much hassle

3redcats, Amazon
12 November 2013
  • Summary: I struggled to make this work without leaking. The coffee it makes is nice if slightly weak, but coming from an old filter machine it just didn't seem worth the extra work and cleaning time, so I returned it.
