I did not put a Durability rating as we having only been using the DeLonghi Combination Coffee/Espresso Machine for only the last 30 days or so, so durability is still a question. Other than that this coffee / espresso machine is an outstanding unit with more features than the one it replaced. the coffee and espresso has been excellent, and YES I would make other purchases from DeLonghi , if what I have seen from this unit is any indication of the quality I can expexct from the rest of their product line.
I've read other reviews complaining about leaking, not working well, etc. But my experience has been GREAT. Makes a great expresso (make sure the grounds are very fine), steams up milk for cappucinos and even for hot chocolate, and makes a great cup of regular coffee. All for less than many other coffee makers. It does take some time to learn how to use the machine properly, but once you get it you can really impress your friends and family as their own personal barrista! Have fun.
After i read the reviews on this product i was not sure what to expect. But i must say it makes the best coffee i have ever made in my home. Love the espresso as well. Everything works perfect. No leaks at all. I do not use the frother for milk because i only drink espresso or coffee but this machine looks and works perfect! If i have any problems i will get on and edit my review. But so far i love love love this machine!!!!
I bought this for my niece as a wedding gift mailed directly to her. It stopped working only one week after she started using it. It's going back. What a shame. Hopefully just this one is a lemon. DeLonghi is a good product name.
We usually run out of steam and have to add water. But overall its a good value machine.
Look at other reviews from different sites if you don't believe me. This product may last 10 - 14 months before it starts leaking from the bottom. Also, if you call 12 months and a day after you bought it, DeLonghi customer service will tell you too bad. Our only saving grace was the retailer where it came from that gave us store credit.
In my opinion, the water should be allowed to get hotter before the brewing process starts. This would make for a more robustly flavored cup of coffee.
Great Value for the price. Excellent coffee and expresso maker is excellent as well. The only problem is it takes a long time to brew 10 cups. Not a big problem as I usually use auto brew but on weekends I wait to get up before turning it on. All in all, a geat value and good coffee.
I don't have many vices but coffee is a big one for me. This little unit makes great drip coffee. In fact for the first six months I owned it I never used it for anything else and I was still happy with my purchase. No paper filters was nice and the coffee came out consistently good. Then recently I started making espresso's with it. I had assumed they'd be difficult so I'd never really made them. Wow, talk about easy. It's as easy to make an espresso as it is to make a pot of coffee. I love this little unit and can't imagine life without it now. Well worth the money. I don't know about the issues mentioned in some of the previous posts but my experience has been totally positive. Just awesome coffee.
We have really enjoyed ours ,it's fast , simple, and easy to clean I would recommend to anyone!
I returned this product because it did not work properly.
First off, the product is hugh and takes up way too much counter space and secondally too confusing to put together with even the directions. Not a good buy for $99. I instead bought the $38 for the mr. coffee espresso machine.
