Not a Smart Purchase
1 March 2011
Summary: After owning three different Jura machines, I decided to change brands and try Saeco. I have friends that have owned Saeco machines and they produce very good espresso. I found the Saeco Primea Touch Plus and I really liked the "wow" factor of the touch screen, motorized drip tray, and the automated...
Summary: I strongly recommend that no one buys this machine. We have had one for 2 years and sorely regret buying it. It has been in the repair shop for well over 8 months at various times. It is simply not made to last. Dont say you wern't warned.
Summary: This machine was rediculous. It was returned within 3 weeks. It would constantly ask you to clean the milk unit and run the cleaning cycle every day. If you do not, it builds up mold and mildew. Was a nightmare. The touch screen did not work well either.
Summary: The Saeco Primea One touch is a masterpiece of engineering. But I agree that it needs a lot of TLC. When dealing with milk there are issues with bacteria and also with sticky film that will clog the system.
Summary: From the very beginning, all the coffee drinks had the flavor of industrial plastic. No matter how much I would clean and rinse it with just water, the taste never got better. After 3 weeks of not every day use, the milk dispenser broke down and would not steam or dispense milk (cleaning and rinsing...
Summary: I had wanted this coffee maker, since it came out. I finally sold my Jura Capresso F9, and pitched an extra ton of cash to be able to buy this machine and boy was I in for a big surprise! First of all, this machine is a piece of junk! Why?
Summary: My Primea Touch Plus has been sent back to Saeco for repair twice for milk frothing problems and it still doesn't work properly. Saeco will try to blame you for the problem but after speaking to one of their authorized service centers I learned that this problem is inherent with this model.
Summary: After buying this machine in Seattle, I have been thoroughly disgusted. We have constant problems with this very expensive machine, even when following prompts, maintenance and very little truly automatic use.
Summary: This spectacular machine is worth every penny. You will never buy another big-chain coffee drink again when you have this one at your fingertips. Whether you like your espresso straight up, or full of frothy milk, Saeco's Primea Ring will knock your socks off.
Summary: I purchased this machine about 4 months ago, and it has been nothing but great! I have never owned a machine like this before, and I had the usual "get over the hump of the learning curve" sorts of problems at first(even though the machine is fairly easy to use), but now I LOVE IT!
