there toaster are great but this machine is awful
20 September 2014
Summary: Rubbish machine, don't know what Dualit are doing or thinking, there toaster are great but this machine is awful, it leaks from the portahead ( the group that holds the coffee), there is not enough pressure to push the water through, you need to buy filter papers, extremely noisy.
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.
Summary: Bought this as joint present to ourselves last Christmas. Very soon started to go wrong. Tiny hole in coffee grind holder blocks very easily - after about two cups even though I religiously use their own filter papers. It need cleaning out with little spikey things supplied.
Other than that it's ok froths up the milk so it's nice and warm

Summary: I purchased this coffee machine but have had problems with it when using ground coffee. It's seems the leak coffee from were the water is poring from and goes everywhere as and end result I have ground coffee all over machine.
Summary: I’ve had the same dualit toaster for 30 years its brilliant. I wish I could say the same for the dualit espresso machine. Sadly it is genuinely one of the worst products I have ever used. Its been sent back after 3 days.
Summary: New machine I got in Nov 14 failed after 2 weeks-pump failed and poured water everywhere. Replacement machine now also failed after less then 3 months. Pump got slowly weaker and now takes ages to filter the water through the holder-therefore burnt coffee, steam and coffee grinds blown everywhere.
If you are ready to descale every week or two then this machine might be for you else AVOID.

Summary: Having taken delivery of one of these 3 months ago I was excited to see how it would be. I'm no connoisseur but I love my coffee. It took a lot of goes to get the water to flow anything like what it sowed in any of the adverts and YouTube videos they publish.
Summary: I can relate to several of the reviews here. My first Dualit sprang a leak after 2 days and went back. It was fine for a while but as others have noted here, after a few months it started struggling to push the water through.
