Summary: This coffee machine looks nice, but produced awful coffee. We like the convenience of a filter coffee machine, and were looking for a new machine to replace our Braun which had stopped working after 6+ years of heavy use. Based on the other reviews, this one looked like a decent machine at a good price. However, I'm afraid I have to strongly disagree with the positive reviews.
Summary: Looks great, nice hot coffee but not scorched, like the auto turn off Would be helpful if the jug also had cup measure indicators. Needs filter papers. Plug has adaptor for UK that is neat looking.
Summary: I'd post a review about the function of the coffee machine if I could actually turn it on. It is illegal to supply an electrical item in the UK without a properly fitted 3 pin plug on it... there wasn't even an adapter plug (also illegal, but at least I could use the product) So now I've spent an extra £2 on an adapter and I have 3-5 days until I can see if this even turns on. Not impressed.
Summary: What an excellent coffee machine, really makes wonderful coffee and keeps it piping hot for two hours and I mean piping hot. Looks fantastic and is well built, I have owned several machines but so far this beats the competition hands down.
Summary: Excellent product.....absolutely delighted with it!! Makes superb coffee!! It only took two goes to get it spot on! One tiny complaint....it's a job to see the water level without bending your knees!!
Summary: This machine was sold by Foto-koester in Germany, it was described as having a UK 3 pin plug. It does not have a 3 pin plug, rather, it comes with an adaptor for 3 pin use. I don't think this was deliberately misleading, rather something lost in translation. Never mind that, at last we have a no frills, well made coffee perculator that makes perfect piping hot coffee.
Summary: Have used this appliance for 2 weeks and it works well, giving a good flavour and at an adequate temperature; always a compromise between keeping it hot enough and spoiling the flavour by over-heating. The answer is not to use cold milk directly from the fridge. Easy to fill with water using a jug and the plastic filter-paper holder lifts out simply for cleaning.
Summary: Ijust recived the coffee machine today. The package was fine. I wanted to use it and could not get the plug to work! The power connector is included in the pack, but it doe snot work. I asked my friend to help me and we culd not get it to work either. The power plub and the connector do not fit! urghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
