Summary: Bought it for my Dad ...wanted to ship it directly to him witch was not allowed.Did not like that. My father has enjoyed the product ..there where some problems with the machine that where under warranty.
Summary: I buy Saeco Odea Go 14-Cup Coffee Maker two months already. For it feature is good, but it doesn't make coffee very strongerly, even I put three cup espresso already. Maybe my taste is differen of other people. But, for totally, this is a very good machine for buying, if the price come litter it down will be perfect.
Summary: I have mixed feelings about this machine so will try and keep it to the point. PROS Very easy to use Makes good hot coffee Milk frother warms up quickly and makes for hot coffee and milk Milk wand is easy to clean as it has a plastic cover - unlike some metal ones that dry up the milk and take forever to clean Dreg draw is easy to take out and clean CONS It is pretty plastic and big Water tank is small and therefore making coffee for more than two people can become...
Nice machine but watch out if you need anything from Saeco

Summary: I liked the machine for the few weeks I was able to use it. However, one part dropped and cracked, and then it was a struggle to find someone who could supply the part. Once I had the part, I needed help with putting a small spring back in - I just needed to know which end is up, and what the two ends need to catch on. There is no detailed documentation that comes with the machine.
Summary: The Saeco Odea Giro makes good espresso and is quick to heat up. General speaking, it is a convenient and stylish machine. My perspective, this machine has some drawbacks. First, the steam wand uses cheap plastic material. The position of rubber handler is misplaced. The rubber touches milk foam almost every time when I make cappuccinos. I cannot understand a $700 machine uses such cheap plastic for steam wand. Second, the drip water tray is small.
Excerpt: Very average,machine went back for warranty repairs several times. Alarms lights were always going off, despite full of water, beans and empty waste tray. Terrible on /off switch. After 12 months use, in shop for two months due to a lack of parts. To make an good coffee you need two shots Good points: swivel base , easy to clean, very compact machine.
Summary: First things first - the coffee these make is fantastic ! However, I had one of these for about 2 years, and it was allways tempramental, in the end it just wouldn't prime anymore. However the company has been bought out by Philips who organised the collection (free of charge) and after about a month gave me a full refund.
