Chef’sChoice Chef’sChoice 667 Electric Food Slicer 10-Inch Diameter Blade : Near professional slicer

It worked well but wish the manual would have told what number is what. Cause i wanted it chipped or shaved. And meat keep sliding out of slicer. But it is better than the ones i bought at walmart,lowes. But thats my only complaint.

We have been very happy with this meat slicer. It arrived just 2 days after i placed the order. It had a defective part, and the company responded immediately. I would certainly order other products from this company. We have used it a lot, and we’re very satisfied with its performance.

I received the slicer in the mail and was excited to fire it up and slice up some lunch meat for my family of 6. It is easy to use and sliced thru everything i threw at it with ease, including cheese. It is quiet and slides easily. It is a bit heavy, but i expected that. I would not want it to be light as i don’t want it sliding on the counter. I read all the reviews on this machine, and felt this would be the best for my family. I paid special attention to the safety features and ease of use. I must say the reviews did the machine justice, icluding the review about the cleaning of the machine. Here’s where i don’t love the machine. The cleaning is a pain in the rear.

A good slicer that does the job and easily cuts through the meat to the thickness desired and selected. Some minor problems come with this slicer though. With the small area behind the blade, it is awkward grabbing the meat as it comes out after having been sliced. The small tray slides and meat falling down easily pushes it to the side, and in one case, even pushed it off the slicer entirely. Not hard to clean up, comes apart easily. When i was cleaning the slicer, 2 pieces slipped out when i tipped the slicer to reach underneath to the base. These pieces were a shaped rod and a spring. I am having trouble finding out where they go as they are not mentioned in the manual at all, and now the slicer won’t even power up. Trying to get through to the company for help. Overall, a very good slicer that does what is advertised and i would recommend it as long as others were aware of the problems.

Works great but wish it would do wider pieces of meat like bacon slabs.

Chef’sChoice 667 Electric Food Slicer 10-Inch Diameter Blade (Discontinued by Manufacturer) : Weight and size great; works well in a food vendor booth over a prolonged period. Tray used to catch meat very poorly designed-does not fit tight to machine and is small, so meat and juices overflow onto counter. Had to devise another tray to go underneath the entire slicer. The blade comes off easily enough, but it is extremely time consuming to clean the entire machine in between uses on a busy day, which is required by our health department. Price is right and overall, it worked much better and faster than cutting by hand.

This slicer is what is needed to slice appropriately; i. , safe, infinitely adjustable, consistent cuts at all thicknesses. As such, it requires some work to clean it following use.

I purchased the product but apparently received a lemon instead of a slicer. The size and overall construction were good for the price, but the design is flawed in several aspects. I was forced to return the unit as defective after the first attempted use. The three phillips head screws that hold the blade in place were torqued so tightly that they could not be removed. In fact, when i turned the unit on, the blade would not even turn. I had to rotate it after attaching the blade removal tool just to unbind the blade. An allen wrench is included to remove the blade guard. The same bolt size should be used for the three blade retention bolts. The knob that controls thickness of the cut was also defective, and rotated as i sliced, making each successive slice progressively thicker. The food carriage is also awkward, and i had to hold the food(i tried salami, capicolla, and provolone)by had to keep it from flipping sideways on the return stroke, no matter how much, or how little pressure was used on the food carriage.

Now we can slice the lamb meet to paper thin pieces. Liitle bit hard to clean up.

A great slicer for every day home slicing. Wouldn’t recommend for super hard meats like home made prociutti.

This food slicer has to be absolutely the best. The blade slices thru meats like a hot knife thru butter. Nothing buthigh praise for this appliance.

This is the second food slicer i’ve owned in my life. The first was a waring food slicer i picked up at lowes for about a hundred bucks. Com and decided to buy this model. While it is an invested in money and kitchen space, i’m very happy with it. It slices through meat, cheese, and veges like they were nothing. Plenty of hand guards and saftey features to keep you from slicing your fingers off too. The blade is extremely sharp though and should be handled with extreme care. Just remember, don’t put your fingers near the blade while it’s spinning for any reason.

When i was shopping for a meat slicer, my major concerns are quality and whether it is easy to clean. I took the plunge because i know i will save a ton of money slicing my own deli meat (and also a ton of energy and time) for my kids’ lunch (plus there is no nitrites and all that bad stuff). This slicer is designed like a tank in durability but has dummies in their mind when it comes to the ease of use. It works wonderfully and my freshly roasted beef all sliced so cleanly and perfectly, just like how it looks at the deli. But the best thing is: it is very easy to clean. I just need to remove the food carriage (first time is the hardest; just don’t overtighten it when you reinstall it)and use the provided wrench to remove the blade protector and wipe clean with a damp cloth. One more thing, i carefully angle the machine over the sink and spray the crevice behind the blade (and that space only, which accumulates a heck of a lot of crumbs and juice) with my sink sprayer. Take it easy and let the water run through the gap for a minute or so. The water will clean that little space perfectly. At first, i thought i need to use some long tool like a chopstick and a cloth to wipe clean that space after i sprayed it.

I’ve searched the whole internet for under-$500 quality meat slicer and ended up getting this one. Reasons i chose this one over the other $100/ $299/ and 400$ similar slicers. I chose chef’s choice brand for broad availability in replacements. I’ve tried a $100ish slicer and i just can’t withstand the motor noise, plus the blade will just slow down if you cut sticky stuff or frozen meat. I’ve also tried the medium level chef’s choice 642, while noise-wise is very acceptable in kitchen enviroment, the blade has no cover, so if you cut delicate stuff, it will just mess it up because of the friction against the rotating blade, even worst when you push all the way down and your cheese will’spin’ if not hold tight. So this one covers it all, plus a more powerful 1/4 hp motor, and a much larger blade at 9. It is very sturdy, close to 30 pounds (but very easy to move around, not that heavy as you think) ruber height adjustable feets stay in place even for the toughest meat slice. It has a double safe switch feature, on-off switch and a start switch next to it, this prevents accidental start (prevents you from being sliced) should the user left the power switch on and plugged in the power cord. So you have to press one time the start button to get the blade spinning.

This slicer is somewhere between a cheap slicer and the one you really want but can’t afford. The motor is strong and quiet. The blade is heavy duty but a little small to cut larger pieces of meat. The food carriage is a little on the cheap side for the price. Overall i’m satisfied but i don’t have that great feeling.

First of all, let me start by saying that you can’t compare the cheap $90 units to this model. It’s like comparing apples to oranges. If you want a ‘cheapo’ just to get you through a year or two, buy one of those. But, if you want something thats going to around a while, i recommend the 667. I bought this slicer as i am a home butcher/processor. I make alot of hams, bacon and sausages. So, i need something that’s consistant and dependable. Of ham this morning paper thin, and i have to tell you.

First off, this was a long time coming for me, and i wanted to test it before i gave any feedback on the buy. It has been 4 months and i couldn’t be happier. This is a huge buy and most places charged way too much. That’s why when i found a place that sold it for [. with shipping, i had to swoop it up. ]so, as far as use, i’ve done a turkey roast and ham for deli slices, london broil for jerky, various cheeses, and other various pork cuts. The blade that comes with it is all you will ever need. The serrated edge they try to push for bread is unnecessary. All you have to do is freeze the bread a little and cut it. ]

My decision to purchase the slicer was by the reviews. My main usage was for semi frozen meat to be sliced for jerky. It worked excellent and it was received prior to the dates specified. Fast delivery, and glad it came so soon. Very please all the way around, service and slicer.

About twice the size of the toys i took back. But still smaller than the smallest commercial unit i looked at. It is not easier to clean than the cheaper versions, but it does a great job of slicing. And looks good which makes the task a little easier. Portions of it can be removed for cleaning, but not without removing screws, etc. I set it on the edge of the sink and try to spray it off. You could remove the blade, but that appears to be somewhat of a task also.

As with peter above, i had purchased several kitchen slicers which proved not to be up to the tasks i asked of it. I love proscuitto and because of the cost at the deli, order a whole one and slice it up myself. None of the slicers i had purchased could do it. It made perfect, paper thin slices that bring out the unique flavor of the proscuitto without strain. I am so impressed with this machine. It’s worth every dollar paid and then some. Together with my vaccum sealer, i slice it all up, seal it and freeze it. In the long run it’s a money saver.

I brought this slicer primarily to slice raw meat:lamb, beef for shabushabu style hot-pot. So some of the details may not apply to other use. I will skip the good part of the slicer, as it is well summarized by other reviews. The bottom line is: i will recommend it, and will buy it again, there is no better unit out there in the same price range. My biggest complain(which is minor in overall picture) is cleaning: you can not get a real good cleaning of the unit. (again, considering my use is to slice raw meat), the blade assembly can be taken apart fair easily, no issue here. But that is about it, all the other parts are very difficult to take apart, if not impossible. The screws used to put the other part together have falt end (with right reason, since those surface are carrying food/meat), that you can not unscrew all the nuts. I hope chefs choice design engineer can take extra steps to address that details (i can only assume that the designer does not use it or clean it 😉 )the other one is some of the cheap plastic panel, the material, the way they are installed. Again, the unit is good, some attention to the details will make it even better, you will unlikely to see those type of issues from , say a japanese design, if you know what i mean.

Yes it is true that this thing really does slice as a $400 slicer should. That is a given and the reviews here show people agree it does the job. But two things to consider:1) $460 -is- a lot of money. But you make the decision that you are willing to pay that for your own professional slicer. 2) the bigger thing to consider is are you prepared to clean this machine every time you use it???remember, at the delicatessen or market, the jr. Butcher has the task of cleaning it every night. This thing requires that you take apart the feed tray, blade cover, blade etc. , to gain access to the bits of food lodged within. It -is- well designed and easy to dis-assemble and re-assemble, but it does take time. And if you leave it for a day or two, you will have a very hard task to scrape out the hardened food bits.

KRUPS FME2-11 Programmable Coffeemaker : Great coffee maker

Our household is a serious coffee haven–we generally brew 2 pots a morning (those 1 serve coffee pots would never do). This is the first carafe in 6 years that does not dribble coffee on the counter when you pour it into a cup. We love the audible alert, the blue display, temperature of the coffee, & the overall design. We use the programmable feature everyday. No need to reset only fill it up the night before and voila. I too wish the white stayed cleaner, but white goes with my kitchen better than the black. Print the max fill line in the water resevoir in black.

No problems, nice looking, great coffee. Very easy to program, even if the power has been lost for a short time.

I purchased this coffee maker 4 months ago & have had absolutely no problems so far. It was a little tricky learning to program it, but i generally make my coffee fresh in the morning so i don’t use the auto-program feature very much. I do like that it has auto shut-off in case you forget to turn it off. The only problem i have is that it is hard to keep the coffee from dribbling on the counter when pouring from the carafe. Also, this product is white which requires a lot of cleaning. I use bottle spring water to make my coffee so i do not have any hard water residue problems. I will probably buy another krups when this one wears out.

I have purchased krups coffeemakers for years because i have always found them to be reliable and durable. This latest model looks like a winner. The glass carafe is made of thinner, more elegant glass than my previous model – hope it holds up as well. A couple of little things disturb me. One is that the lid attaches to the carafe by two small rubbery/plastic projections that fit into small holes in the handle of the carafe. If one of these projections breaks off, i don’t think the lid will stay on right. The second thing is that the carafe is now shaped so that it is smaller at the top than at the bottom. When you go to pour out the last of the coffee, the steam escapes onto your hand – ouch. My old carafe was straight-sided and poured out all the coffee without burning your hand. The shape of the new carafe is more pleasing to look at, but it does have this downside.

This is a great buy and i like the looks of it on my counter. We have one in yellow for tea also. I never use the auto because it is too confusing. The bells are okay not bothersome. No trouble with the handle either. The yellow one does have an extra band to go around with the handle.

It’s a nice size pot 12 cup, the lid is stain resistant, unlike the previous krups model i had. It brews a bit slower than the last, but not unreasonably slow.

I can readily reccommend the krups coffee maker. It is easy to fill with water, the controls are straightforward, it does not leak water and is just a fine coffee maker.

I had a krups for years and loved it. So when i changed colors in my kitchen, i decided to buy another krups. At first it looked cool but the white gets stained easy and the quality isn’t as good. The glass carafe used to have a metal band around it with a removeable lid. Now the handle is glued on and the lid is attached which makes it hard to put in the dishwasher. The coffeemaker is all right, but if i had to do it over again i would pick something else.

We had a krups for about 10 years and it finally died. I went with consumer report’s advice and bought an expensive cuisinart. After trying several coffees and formulas in the cuisinart, i finally gave up and bought another krups. The new krups made coffee as good as the old one.

I already owned a krups coffee maker and bought one to replace my parents aging coffee maker. These are fast accurate and brew a great cup. I also like the water filter feature. It removes chlorine and any other after tastes.

Coffee and it didn’t work so well. The krups fme2 has worked flawlessly thus far. I hope it lasts as long as our previous krups coffee maker which lasted 5 years. With our very hard water, that is an accomplishment. The coffee tastes great too.

I like this coffeemaker alotmy first one had develpoped an air bubble, that i treated for a couple of months (it was a good way to clean the coffeeepot also), it successfully went away for months (in fact, i was definitely sure it was gone for good,then it was back again). , well, decided to get the one i have now. It’s now here at home, on standby, for when the other one acts up. Even though i’m telling you the air-bubble problem. , i still like this coffeemaker, & will stay with krups coffeemakerswilliam appelt.

It brews coffee just fine but the clock stopped working after 2 weeks and it’s too much hassle to return it.

Black & Decker EHC650B Ergo 3-Cup Food Chopper : I love this, had my doubts but didn’t regret it at all!

I bought this for my wife about a year ago. We have a high quality food processor that it great but it takes up counter space and it is a hassel to take it out. Therefore, we only really use it when we have a big batch of something. My wife tried a couple of those ‘slap shot’ devices, but they always would break after a short time. I had tried another motorized mini-chop that cost about $14 at a local store but it just didn’t work very well. For $20 i thought i would give the b&d a try and now we both use it and love it. It is really small and light weight and it is very easy to grab it and use it. Clean up is super easy too, i just add some water to the bowl and a drop of soap and let it run for a couple of seconds. I rinse out the bowl, wipe down the motor housing and i’m good to go. It does a great job at chopping and it offers a lower speed which is great for chopping succulent vegetables like green peppers.

Love it, bought one for me and one for my parents. I first purchased a hand food chopper thinking that an electric one would be annoying because i don’t have conveniently placed electrical outlets in my old weirdly designed kitchen, and i was worried it would be difficult to clean. The bottom parts are dishwasher safe. The top part you can take a paper towel with some soap or a sponge to and clean it very easily and i am one of those people often lovingly referred to as a ‘germaphobe’. The outlet thing – i actually fill it up and stand near an outlet next to my fridge because it is so much more convenient. I find myself cooking more because i bought it. I dropped it last time i used it so next paycheck i will be buying another one. It’s plastic so don’t drop it. I cracked the plastic bottom when i dropped it.

I got this hoping i could dice and chop things like onions, celery, water chestnuts, carrots, bell peppers. I kind of assumed that this would end up pureeing the vegetables instead of chopping and dicing but i’m lazy so i took a chance on this bad boy. Jeez was i sure wrong about the puree part. I noticed the blades are not so close together so i thought that maybe diced chunks may come out better and it sure turned out right. All you have to do is pulse the food chopper until the desired size is attained. The 3 cup bowl comes in handy too. Be careful when washing the blades. I learned when i first washed the blades and sliced my finger deeply.

DeLonghi De’Longhi EC860 Espresso Maker : Great for hurried mornings

Super fast delivery and everything works as expected. Really like the product and the seller.

Would have given it 5 stars except i have 1 minor occasional issue. When using the spout for frothing in a pitcher, if you bump it occasionally it will pop off and stop delivering steam. Not major, just push it back in. Just had for about a month so don’t know about life yet, but very happy.

Very pleased with this machine. I’have owned many different espresso maxhine but this is top notch. Easy to use a makes excelent espresso and cappuccinos. Saved yourself money and buy one of these.

It makes espresso much more tasty than starbuck. I can enjoy coffee in cheapest price at home with it every morning.

I am really enjoying this machine. It took me quite a few cappuccinos and lattes to dial it in for my flavor preference, but this is my first home espresso machine, and after upgrading from a bosch tassimo machine, i’m learning a lot. The automatic milk frother is wonderful. I tend to leave it on the maximum foam setting and it makes perfect, fluffy foam. On the lowest setting, you pretty much just get warm milk, no froth at all. Setting up the machine was easy, although i am lucky that i am the only coffee drinker in the house. I have personalized the cappuccino and latte settings for the amount of milk/coffee i like. There is only 1 setting for those. If my husband liked either of those drinks, we might have a problem. I would recommend for anyone that has multiple coffee drinkers is to leave it on the default settings and tweak it from there by either brewing extra shots or something.

I haven’t had to experience too many myself so i don’t have much to compare it to, but i will say that although i do not regret this purchase, i do believe i would have been satisfied with a less expensive machine. There is nothing absolutely astounding about this machine that i would recommend others to purchase it for. I was conflicted between several machines, one of which included a machine for under 100, and im beginning to think i would have been happy with just that. Theres nothing wrong with the machine persay, aside from the programs being confusing at times – sometimes i get a full cup of coffee, sometimes i get a thin layer. Not worth the money i payed for it. Beautiful machine, too bulky and quality just isn’t to parr for the quality i would have expected for the price i payed.

We have had this machine for about a month now and are finding it to be a suitable replacement for our older starbucks sirena which made great coffee but was nothing but trouble mechanically from the start. The delonghi makes a good latte, is attractive, seems solid and is easy to use after you figure out how which the instructions do not describe well. We found a youtube video from a store in seattle that had a gal demonstrating it to a t which was way more helpful and told us things we would have never found out from the manual. It comes with an instructional dvd that would not play in our player. The delonghi has great stream power but you have no control over that power which was an adjustment for us. It makes decent shots and is quick and efficient. We have been making our own lattes for almost 30 years and have had a few machines in those years. This one is going to work out just fine. We purchased it at sam’s club for $299 which looks like a great deal comparatively speaking.

I would’ve been very hesitant about purchasing this item after having read the reviews. A client made me a latte one night and i commented that it was much better than what i could get from my 10 year old starbucks machine. I liked making espresso or lattes, but usually used it about once a month because it was such a hassle. I went home that night and decided to have another and my starbucks machine was totally dead. I asked my client which she had and decided to purchase one. There were so many mediocre and poor reviews that i almost didn’t order it. My client had hers for two years, used it several times per day and loved it. I went ahead and ordered, knowing that i could always return it if there was an issue. Perhaps it’s too early for a review, but after over two months i have been using the machine 4 or 5 times per day. I will agree that the ‘steamed milk’ is a bit different with the frother on here, but i have no complaints about it.

I look forward to using it every single morning.

Love this machinei always wanted a great fancy coffee machine and this one does it’s job without breaking your banklove my foammy cappuccinos and lattes❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️.

There will be better, more complete technical assessments of this unit than i am prepared to write tonight, but i will say that i am delighted with it. I have tinkered with inexpensive espresso makers in the past and never had as much satisfaction as i have gotten from working with this. I am 67 and had my first cup of coffee in 1949 when i was a 18 months old. But this unit has opened up a whole new world of coffee for me.

Excellent price-quality ratio. Yes, you can’t use coffee mug with this machine and this is right. Drink espresso with small espresso cups and americano from coffee mugs.

I have used this unit for over a year without any problems. I do agree with one of the other users that the instructions were somewhat cryptic. This is not an apple product. The initial set up is not intuitive. Read the instructions more than once and go for it. The price is reasonable and the performance is as expected.

Didn’t buy mine here, but will pitch in. Lovely machine when it’s running properly. A pig of a machine when it’s not. Bought mine nov 2013 and have replaced three double shot basket and one milk hopper. As for the latter, you need to be scrupulously clean. Blast it with steam after every use and soak the black part of the unit in hot water often to keep it working. Mine’s been papmered and descaled regularly. The pump appears to work ok, but the machine really struggles if the coffee is too fine a grind. Currently talking to an ace coffee provider whi is going to send me samples of different grades. Machine is easy to strip and clean.

First espresso machine and it does exactly what it’s says it suppose to do. Makes a mean cappuccino👍👍👍👍👍. Get the coffe beans you love and you’ve got a winner.

I was hesitant about giving 5 stars as i never do, but we love this. After living aboard we decided that we couldn’t drink regular coffee in the mornings. I started looking for an espresso/cappuccino maker. I picked this one out but after reading some reviews i was hesitant. I looked at other machines in the same price range. I ended up buying this one and love it. We make 2-4 cappuccinos every morning. We haven’t had any problems yet. I did carefully read the directions and make sure the settings we right for us. I did take about 3-4 days to start making great cappuccino but the manual does say that.

I’ve been using this de’longhi ec860 espresso machine for about a month. We use it daily and it’s so easy to use; my husband can just do his own now. . It’s very easy to program to your own liking. I also like the fact that you can use it manually if you want to get creative. I’ve read negative comments and i’ve not had any problems. One of the issues was the espresso wasn’t hot enough but i just preheat my cup and it’s very hot. I highly recommend this machine.

I have had nothing but a great experience with this machine. I have had none of the problems some reviews complained about. It is super sad to use but read the instructions and follow the setup procedures and options before beginning. At the touch of the button i can automatically make capuchinos and lattes with the attached reservoir. Likewise i can use the manual steamer to steam my own milk and make latte artthis unit goes from off to hot and making great coffee drinks in under 15 seconds. It will make several drinks in a row with the large water reservoir. With the adjustable removable tray it fits and cup i choose to stick under it.

This is an extremely well-built piece of equipment for anyone wanting to become a home based barista. This machine was created for all those individuals (myself included) intimidated by the complexities of using a traditional espresso/cappuccino machine. The instruction manual is well written and easy to understand. With a little practice, you’ll be creating your own homemade cappuccinos in no time at all.I use my machine daily, and i really love it.

It was exactly what i was expecting.

I purchased this machine last summer when my very old estro profi espresso machine bit the dust. After some trial/error with this product (the instruction manual was not very user friendly) as well as watching you tube videos of a local coffee shop that tested the product it works great. The espresso can be adjusted to taste (shorter flow of water for a stronger shot) which i do like as my spouse tends to like his espresso drinks more potent than i do. Overall, a good machine and delivers decent espresso shots.

BLACK+DECKER & Decker CM4000S 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker : Economical even though the look suggests otherwise

Nothing to complain about here, even if the item isn’t anything you’d jump up and down about. It’s a fairly basic affordable coffeemaker from black & decker, a trusted name brand. It is designed well to use a minimal amount of counter space. I love that you can program the machine to make coffee whenever you want.

Very disappointed that the clock face/control panel does not light up. This subtracts an entire star.

I purchased this machine since my kitchen aid finally died. Love this coffeemaker, it is does a great job in making the coffee. Yes, as one other person mentioned, it does beep after 1 minute of turning it on and still brews for another 5 minutes or so. But it does make a great cup of coffee, or should i say my husband makes a great pot of coffee :). Happy we purchased this, it is just as good as our kitchen aid which we had for 7 years.

I got this because i was having guests who drink coffee. It won’t get lots of use so i can’t yet comment on reliability.

I had a black and decker before which lasted a long time and was so reliable. So i went with it again and am very satisfied again.

It makes a good cup of coffee quickly and is simple to use.

Purchased this coffee maker about 6 months ago in a rush as our prior maker died the morning before a cross country move. We purchased this coffee maker at a target store. The coffee doesnt taste too bad and i enjoy both the auto and strong brew options. What i dont like is that it beeps to say its done brewing but continues brewing for another 5 minutes after beeping. It constantly drips when the carafe is removed (the hot plate coating is now peeling off due to this). The carafe also hemorrages water or coffee when pouring. I lose almost an entire cup when pouring water into the maker – i have to hold a towel against the carafe when pouring and then have to wring the towel out.

This coffee maker is very noisy. It did produce a nice cup of coffee, but i am not sure if that is because i used a new brand of coffee as well (eight o’clock brand) my bedroom is right off the kitchen and when it started brewing this morning it woke me up. It pings and spits and is just noisy in general. That is really the reason i am taking it back today. This is what i get for buying it on the spot and not checking reviews as i usually do.

I”ve owned many coffee pots. . This was the correct purchase. Love this black and decker coffee pot especially the strong brew options.

Makes an excellent, hot cup of coffee. However, the basket is poorly designed — it will not stand on countertop, so it must be filled as it sits in the machine. One side of the handle pulled out of its attachment and i am unable to get it to stay back in. Also, the led clock is poorly lit and can’t be read in most lights. All minor points, to be sure, but worth redoing on the next incarnation of the coffee maker.

I’m putting this 12-cup coffee maker on the shelf until i really need to make a big pot of coffee. I just don’t like the coffee. Almost everything about this coffee maker works well. You can make four to 12 cups in no time. You can program the coffee maker and have fresh coffee when you wake up. You can do an automatic cleaning. But if you don’t like the coffee, it’s no pleasure to have all the bells and whistles. Perhaps if it were possible to measure water accurately for less than four cups, it might be better, but there’s no way to accurately measure the amount of water for less than four cups.

If you want a simple but well-designed coffeemaker, this is it. It is faster than my old one and makes very hot coffee (which is a plus for taste). I also like the way the basket is nested inside, which makes it difficult for the grounds to spill out. I have a little difficulty seeing the digital time display with its indication for strong coffee, but the coffee tastes fine.

I purchased this in a physical store, so i cannot comment as to the online seller. However, this is a great coffee maker. We purchased it last year because our old keurig had broken and the coffee maker we were using in our previous home was 7 years old and the clock never displayed all the way the whole 7 years we had had it. We figured we deserved a new coffee maker and i have had pretty good experiences with black and decker appliances. The machine works perfectly well and does what it needs to do – brew coffee. It’s pretty efficient and the auto feature has never failed us. The parts remove easily for washing and go back on the machine with no issues. I really have nothing bad to say about it.

I like:-how it looks;-where the controls are placed;-how the water level is marked inside the tank;-and the programmable/auto-off features. I dislike:-the loud beep when the brewing cycle’s finished that can’t be turned off;the substantial drip that happens when removing the carafe, whether or not it’s finished brewing.

Standard 12 cup coffee maker, with some programable features.

This coffee maker from black and decker sets up easily, programs simply, and brews wonderfully. It takes standard low cost paper filters, not the expensive cone shaped ones that drain your budget. The machine works fast at making the 12 cups, and does this in around 5 minutes. The alarm can be annoying, but this may be useful early in the morning when you need a fire lit under your rear to get moving. I highly recommend this coffee maker.

Usually a breville/keurig k-cup lover, i’m really liking this coffee maker, especially for family gatherings when you need to make a large quantity economically and quickly. It performs great and perks my coffee so fast and always with consistent taste. I consider myself a coffee connoisseur so i am very picky when it comes to coffee makers. This unit has the ability to pre-set on a timer and you can wake yourself up to a delicious pot of coffee instead of an annoying beeping alarm clock. I am thoroughly enjoying this coffee maker and feel that it is an excellent value for the price point. When what you need is a great cup of coffee, this is the maker. It has the look of an expensive appliance with the value and performance and the reliability of more pricey unit. One con to mention, i dislike that you cannot see from the outside how much water you are filling the tank with.

So far, we have had nice luck with this coffee maker. We enjoy the fast brewing time (5 to 6 minutes for a pot), the auto brew, the cleaning button, and the auto 2 hour shut off. We also found it easy to program. Like many have mentioned, the beeper and the machine itself is noisier than other machines. But i kind of like to hear the brewing sound. I think i must be a little clumsy. . Because with any coffee pot we’ve had, i’ve managed to spill water when pouring water in and when grabbing the pot for a cup before it’s finished brewing. (you are suppose to be able to do this, but i still get some spillage, and then sizzling). We use dunkin donuts coffee, and we always seem to get a good cup of coffee. I always put cream and sugar in mine.

Great and the coffee comes out perfect.

This coffee maker sounds like the little engine that could. There’s quite a bit of gurgling while the coffee is brewing. It’s way noisier than any coffee maker i’ve ever owned. It’s easy to use, mostly because there aren’t that many choices. I followed the instructions, cleaning the pot and insides while running plain water through the cycle once. It operates pretty much like any other coffee pot — except for that infernal noise. Then, at the end of the cycle, there’s a high-pitched beep that my dog hates. (i’m not too fond of it either. ) at least it does it only once. The clock on the front is not illuminated and you have to look at it just right to see the time.

Not a she already one car is actually makes a pot of coffee does a nice job i would use the timer yeah i’m sure it’ll be just fine.

I’ve had this for a couple weeks now and i love it. It brews fast and is easy to use.

Water Wise Waterwise WW1600 Non-Electric Water Distiller – It was awesome.

I knew that the place i wanted to live did not have the best water in. It was my choice to have good drinking and cooking water. The best way to get that was to distill it myself. I also bought the non-electric in case of disaster as you could also use it on the bbq. Given that, it takes the best part of the day to get the five gallons that i want. I have to choose a day where i am going to be home to attend it. It usually takes 10-12 hours. It has to be attended to every 40 minutes. I live with a timer around my neck all day. I have to do this once a week.

I bought property and i’m off grid. Hauling water until we get a well. This leaves any water for drinking sterilized. Just add a pinch of iodized salt.

As recommended by the book, dare to prepare. The author thought this wonder item was no longer available except as a used item from a former owner. Therefore, you can’t imagine how thrilled i was when i found it brand-new on amazon.Here are the specifications for the Water Wise Waterwise WW1600 Non-Electric Water Distiller:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Not even a power outage can stop the 1600.
  • Ideal for camping; or as a backup for your electric distiller.

The unit is near perfect in design. The only teensy little drawback is the fact that you have to scrub the lime and scale off after every use.

Making my own distilled water is very important to me. This simplifies the process in a clean easy way. Now if only they included the flat bottle that the new zealand site does.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Fantastic product.
  • The only one to get
  • Ready for any disaster

We like our 1600 especially for use outdoors and on our wood stove. Itseems to have a good quality stainless bottom pan and the trays arethinner because they have to transfer the heat for cooling. Not allstainless is smooth and shiny. The underside of the trays is rough bydesign for added cooling surface. With a two year warranty i am suregetting my money’s worth. As with any product it must be used correctlyto get the best performance.

I don’t make beer or any other alcoholic beverages i simply want to distilled my water for a home project without any unnecessary water waste, this product is spot on, very easy to operate, my recommendation is to read the instructions few times before operating it. Wash it with soap and water few times before and don’t forget to add water to the cooling plates on the top.

Product is not cheaply built as some have reviewed; it’s very sturdy. The documentation states it will generate a gallon of distilled water in 70 minutes. I have timed it 3 times and my best run yet was 2 hours 25 minutes, twice the stated time. I’ve tried leveling the cooktop, the collection device adjusting the temperature with little change in result. I have only run this still on a flat glass electric stove. I believe a gas heat source may work better because of the design of the kettle.

I really like this stainless steel water distiller. I wanted to avoid anything that utilizes plastic and this was the only thing i could find. I’ve been using it for almost a year. My wife and i distill and remineralize all of our drinking and cooking water so we distill about 10-12 gallons a week give or take. When used properly i only have to refill the pan and the tiers about every 1. After its been remineralized, i’ve never tasted water so good. I actually want to drink water now, which is a big deal for me.

I asked during ordering if this was made in the usa; and the lady said yes. It took much longer to distill than i expected; and i frequently had to add water to the evaporator platters. I haven’t tasted the water yet. I presume if the collection bottle or hose was cooled (by being buried, perhaps), that would considerably add to the yield time. Marked 4 stars because of how long it took; and how much electricity. Perhaps this would crank over a hot campfire with a cool breeze blowing over the platters.

Very good product and gives a large quantity of distilled water in a short period of time. The only downside for me it that it is not regisitering zero purity on my tds, it is registering 5. Otherwise, it is the best performer i’ve seen so far.

It’s good quality, and is nice to have just in case, but darn it people the price is expensive for what it really is.

My husband was a journeyman pressure vessel welder very familiar with metal of all kinds. He says this is all stainless steel. We just made a video about it on our youtube channel, boondockabillies. We made clean drinking water from ocean water.

I bought this a year and a half ago and have used it every week. I keep 3 five gallon bottles full of delicious pure water. Well worth the price i paid and very well built.

Something doesn’t compute here and needs to be explained. The extreme disparity between all these reviews essentially cancels them all out like an algebraic ratio problem. Perhaps this distiller is manufactured out of sometimes marginal materials in an iffy environment. Having seen some of the documented chinese working conditions on tv, that wouldn’t surprise me. Does amazon quality-check the safety of food and water preparation products?. Are those seriously negative reviews accurate?.

I tested it and it really does work. You must have a lot of patience and be well educated on how to use it. This will come in very handy if the power ever goes out here, just like my solar grill.

KRUPS ZX720K Electric Acrylic Citrus Juicer – Best Juicer I Have Found

It does a great job, doesn’t take much space and is easy to clean.

This replaced an absolutely useless one which i ended up throwing out. Great power so you can juice many oranges quickly.

This product works just as the other favorable reviews describe. I experienced none of the issues that the negative reviews reported. The pour nozzle is just fine, but common sense says to not drop the whole thing directly on the nozzle and then complain when it gets broken. It’s also easy to disassemble and clean. It provides more than enough power to juice lemons and oranges easily. No special hand strength or dexterity is required.

Best looking juicer i have seen and it works.

Works well every time and has lasted over 4 years so far and is easy to clean.

My husband has been making fresh lemonaid, so yummy.

  • I love this so much I registered for one as a
  • Great juicer
  • Orange juicer

I moved and the color perfect.

I have tried several lemon juice extractors and this one has so powerful motor – you will not be able to stop it.

I like everything about it except that the center axel is awkard and hard to remove for cleaning.

I love this so much i registered for one as a wedding gift and have been using it regularly for 5 years. Then bought another as a housewarming gift for my cousin and he uses it all the time. Easy to clean in top rack of dishwasher, small and looks great on the counter- but easy to store as well. Juiced limes for margaritas and oranges for fresh orange juice and gets the juice out fast and efficiently, catching all of the seeds and pulp.

I bought this a few years ago and the first year it worked great. The second year it was hit or miss. The center spindle had what i would describe as ‘slippage’. You could hear the motor moving but the device wasn’t turning. I’d pull the spindle and reposition it several times until it worked again. It worked great, when it worked. Did anyone else have this experience?.

Great juicer, very easy to use, fast and powerful.

We use this guy for our morning oj everyday. Easy enough that even my 5yr old can do it.

Only spins in one direction – clockwise. But it is solid, doesn’t move when in use, and doesn’t sound like its going to fall apart.

Great product arrived on time.

Very well made, and verrrry quiet.

Last unit was good and strong but. The cone cracked and there are no replacements.

VonShef Frozen Dessert Maker – Totally works.

Makes a great natural sorbet.

Not ice-cream but a good healthy choice. Stuff does not push out all the way.

Take care of your bodyit’s something that i love to do. I like finding ways to make eating healthy, more delicious and not to mention fun fun fun. So i found myself one day last week, browsing on amazon for cool products. It’s cool to browse but sometimes you never know what something is really like until its right in front of your eyes. Well because i’m an optimist and know that everything is always working out for me, i decided to hit the check out button and buy this lovely machine. I forgot to mention i looked at videos of it on youtube and even compared it to a dessert bullet machine but decided to go with this one because of the price and because of the simplicity of parts and clean up. Clean up is so important to me, on a side note i used to have this juicer and though i loved it, it took forever to clean it which made me not want it anymore. I loved the eating healthy though which is something that i’m fortunate and lucky enough to continue. On arrival day, i came prepared, i bought lots and lots of frozen fruit from walmart, mostly organic.

I wonder before i got this product how easy it was to use, and it’s so much easier then i thought. . And super fast, making the perfect sorbet. I recommend if your looking for homemade natural yogurt or sorbets and ice cream, this is great to get for yourself.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great Fun Machine!!!!
  • I am EXTREMELY HAPPY with my VonShef!!
  • Amazing! I’m vegan and don’t eat dairy

I was worried it wouldn’t work very well because it’s so inexpensive but it is awesome. It makes a delicious treat with little effort. But peel the bananas befor you freeze them, i didn’t think about it the first time and it was much more challenging.

I’m vegan and don’t eat dairy, and sometimes dairy free ice cream isn’t what i’m looking for because it has too many calories. This is great because it’s similar to sorbet but with the texture of soft serve i love it.

Takes frozen fruit and makes it in to a great sorbet.

I’ve only had this a few days, but i’m totally hooked. I have a major sweet tooth and love ice cream, but i’m trying to eat more healthfully. I’ve only had it a few days, but i’ve used it every day. My favorite, though, is banana with powdered peanut butter and cocoa. I used 1 banana and about a teaspoon each of the powders. I thought it might need to be sweeter, but i was happy with it the way it was.

Exactly what i wanted for all the frozen over-ripe fruit that i save. Just remember to save it in pieces small enough to put into the tube. . Maybe save the fruit in ice cube trays and when frozen, just collect the cubes in a bag to keep in the freeze to use when ready. Wonderful for those evening cravings.

Ok, but not what i expected.

Does what it’s advertised too do. Cheap alternative that functions like the overpriced versions.

Much cheaper, easier, & healthier than an ice cream maker. Freeze fruit in smallish chunks (or buy frozen fruit). Turn it on, push down with the plunger. Takes a very short time to make a serving or 2. Would take a while to make a whole lot.

This is way better than the cheaper tv versions you see. I ordered one of those i saw highlighted on hln news, and it didn’t work at all. This works great, much higher quality.

Very easy to use and clean and makes yummy desserts.

It was a gift for my daughter. She used it right away and said she loves it.

Easy set up, works well, and taste great.

This was a gift for my dad for his birthday. He is trying to eat more healthy but loves frozen treats in the summer. So this is a perfect alternative for him. He has already used it and says it works great.

Awesome for my daughter who wants ice cream all the time and now we are having healthy fruit cream instead. Put a little cream or milk in as you do this and it comes our more creamy and soft.

It’s great for anyone who loves sweet treats. This is my first time using it and made it with frozen strawberries, blueberries, bananas and vanilla yogurt that i also frozen. I also added some dark chocolate chips. I think it’s a great way to help your sweet tooth in a healthy way.

. Easy to use, clean up and most of all tastes great.

Farberware Open Hearth Broiler & Rotisserie : Mine is still in use today after over 35 years

I had one of these in the 70’s. . Loved it then but it got lost in my many moves. Purchased my replacement on amazon and couldn’t be happier. It works like a charm and is easy to clean.

I had this farberware rotisserie. The exact same model has been in my mothers kitchen and mine for over 48 years. Cooks perfect pork and beef tenderloin, steaks and wings. I recently passed it along to my son and now he is cooking on it. What is shocking is the $400. 00 price tag the company is asking for it. No one should pay that amount for it.

A lot of not disclosed shipping and exchange costs that made the item too expensive.

All items included works just fine.

  • Can’t go wrong with old school cookware
  • Does a great job
  • Loved it then but it got lost in my many

Farberware Open Hearth Broiler & Rotisserie

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Farberware
  • Rotisserie
  • Grill

Thank you for sending this to me. I originally had one of these and it got lost when i was moving. So i thought i would try to replace it, for they don’t make it anymore. Thank you so much i will surely enjoy it. It arrived in good condition.

One of the legs was broken – we glued it and it was fine. The motor was also broken, upon opening the cover it was discovered that a gear was loose – it still needs to be repaired.

The flavor of the food is better than cooking on your grill. No one should live without one of these.

The farberware open hearth rotisserie is amazing. That said, i would never ever pay nearly $400 for one. These are old- from the 60s-70s. We have two of them that we have gotten at estate sales over the years. Never paying more than $20 in southern california. When we come across one we buy it- sometimes it is just parts that we use for backup. You can make the most delicious chicken- a real family favorite.

My mom has one of these and i borrowed it last night to use as a grill. It was easy to use (i used it indoors), and was very easy to clean since the whole thing comes apart do not leave it unattended, however. I noticed the electrical cord became quite warm which probably isn’t a good sign and i feel like a very greasy meat might provide fuel for a fire. Keep some baking soda handy when you use it. That being said, i didn’t worry too much as i cooked last night, and the flank steak i made with it was delicious. Bottom line, if you’re in the market for one of these, i wouldn’t pay more than $50 (try to pay less, as a matter of fact) because they are old, possibly dangerous, and you might not be able to repair/replace worn parts.

I never got the productsomeone stole it off my door step. I was so looking forward to it as well. My mom use to have one, and it made the best steaks and burgers.

Excellent appliance, it is a shame that farberware doesn’t make it anymore.

Lost my old one in move to new location so i had to get new one. Last one i had for 20 years, and i swear, not a thing has been changed on it. For once someone knew’ do not mess up a good thing’. Easy to clean and replacement part easy to get.

Had the same one for 32 years had to get the same one just love it.

Mine is still in use today after over 35 years. Tomorrow, roasting a boneless stuffed turkey during the football game – can’t wait.

One is 40 years old and one 30 years old. I have made sure to pick up spare parts at garage sales. I have had to replace one plug that goes to an outlet over the years. I had one electric element fail during this time. Whenever i saw one at a garage sale at a good price ( $10 ) i bought it and either fixed it up for a gift or used the parts to upgrade my own units. Compared to a “set it and forget it” it takes longer to cook with, but is far easier to clean. For duck or goose it cannot be beat. I do not use it for grilling because i have cast iron skillets for steaks and chops, but i do love the ease of properly cooking skewered foods in that it is easy to rotate the skewers. If you can get your hands on a complete unit, you will not be disappointed but be in wonderment.

For years, i lamented about my grandparents rotisserie and would compare every rotisserie to theirs and the others would just come up short in my opinion. In searching for a rotisserie for the umpteenth time, how i came across this i have no idea; i was excited as it was the exact model my grandparents used. Seller answered all of my questions promptly. Received it faster than it was originally stated – which made me very happy. When it arrived, my husband laughed as i was like a little kid at christmas. Cleaned all of the pieces and put a whole chicken on it yesterday and it came out great. We have a pork shoulder roast on it right now and it’s looking good (we’ve had to block the kitchen off as our dogs keep circling the counter with their noses up high. Glad to see i can find parts for it if/when ever needed around the web though and the free instructions on another site. Overall, we’re very happy with our purchase as i am sure it will get a lot of use.

From the picture that tells me that this is what i purchased, it was not. It did not come with the rotisserie attachment. You have to read the fine print further down to see that it only came with the grill and you could not return it.

Love it and it is easy to wash.

We had one of these when i was a kid, used it all the time for bacon, burger patties, hot dogs, steaks, grilling buns. We never did use the rotisserie feature, i am looking forward to trying it out. The heating element can be pulled out, so cleaning is easy – just the drip pan, grate, and open pan.

I cooked on ours last weekend. After 43 years it still cooks to perfection. After sitting without use for a while i did have to take the rotisserie motor apart to lube it. But it was simple and runs quietly.

I enjoyed my farberware open hearth broiler rotisserie and prepared a beautiful prime rib for a birthday dinner party and two days later was preparing a pork loin for a christmas dinner and the motor was dead. What a great disappointment. Any chance i could get a replacement or my money back?.

This is our 2nd one and it works great. The first one we had also work great but due to down sizing we sold it now that we have a little more room we purchased the second one which shows how much we like it and how well it cooks. We use it as a rotisserie and the food cook evenly. If you like rotisserie food then this is a excellent purchase. This does require a lot of room for storage when not in use. Also i think farberware stop making them.

PHILIPS Saeco RI9367/47 Via Venezia Espresso Machine – This is a great machine! I received one as a gift four

Bought via venezia based on good ratings and decent price ($300 plus shipping). Pretty good crema but shots are watery and the grounds are even worse. Overall the machine is ‘ok’ but will upgrade sooner than later considering how much i enjoy excellent espresso, not mediocre. My mistake though, should have gone with the gaggia brera.

Easy to use and makes great coffee. Has held up well for the one month we have been using it.

Easy to use and makes a great cup of espresso.

I received one as a gift four years ago and it has changed how i drink coffee. I now have three shots in the morning and i’m good to go. I recently bought a second one to go into our place in the country.

It would probably be prudent to offer some background information on my ‘espresso credentials’ prior to getting to the bulk of my review. Knowing nothing about espresso preparation, i received a steam-driven espresso machine (mr. Coffee ecm160) as a gift about a year ago. It was a great gift that introduced me to home espresso, although even upon first use i knew that it wasn’t making ‘true’ espresso, i just didn’t yet understand the underlying mechanics behind proper espresso extraction. A little research revealed the obvious difference between steam and pump driven machines. My desire to occasionally enjoy a straight shot of crema-topped espresso, in addition to various espresso-based drinks, pushed me to begin researching pump driven machines. I hadn’t come across this machine in my research, but instead i was introduced to saeco’s via venezia while visiting a friend’s house. Seeing an appliance like this in action, and tasting the resultant espresso, is about as good a test drive as you’ll get. The made-in-italy via venezia is a single stainless-steel boiler machine, driven by a 15-bar pump and features a pressurized portafilter – which ostensibly provides extraction that is less dependent upon grind size/consistency and tamping force. From my experience, the forgiving pressurized portafiliter lives up to its billing.

Love it so much that i bought another one for our second home. I use them every day and they produce great cappuccino’s. After a couple of years i had to replace one minor part on the frother.

  • Cheap on the outside, but makes decent espresso.
  • Great machine
  • it’s ok.

The only down side to this maker is that it doesn’t last forever. I use mine at least once a day, and over a span of 10 years, recently bought my third one.

For the volume it’s designed for, it does a stellar job. Consistent cup of coffee with beautiful crema.

This little puppy puts out the coffee with simplicity. Had for 6 months and works great.

Works every time, and makes it as well as starbucks. Probably used it over 400 times; flawless.

We have used it almost daily for about a year and a half. It is very easy to use and makes adequate espresso. Once you get the grind right and find quality beans you will enjoy it very much. I do not have any complaints and hope it keeps going for a long, long time.

Great product for the money- not quite as refined as the same unit we purchased 18 years ago, but close enough.

I love my latte machine, but i seem to be having a problem with the coffee. It keeps pouring over the sides. I do not understand what i am doing wrong to cause this issue. I follow the directions exactly and even made sure i have the correct coffee grind size.

Let me start by saying the bad. First off my espresso machine experience is limited. I’ve only use my old manual which the pump died and the saeco odea automatic. The outside build quality is not the best. The front buttons are cheap and require a lot of force to operate. I see these failing in the future. The bottom of the filter holder is plastic which when you snug up the holder on the machine you can feel the plastic flex. The basket holder is metal which is good but the bottom portion is plastic which i’m assuming was to save money. The drip tray with bottom drawer is an excellent idea but poor implementation. Once again very cheap basically just plastic trays that are stacked together.

I love this and it is my third one as they typically last about 2 years. I just keep buying this brand.

Before buying our via venezia, we owned a forerunner to this machine, the barista, and got many years of good service out of it. In recent years, i purchased replacement parts and made some repairs. While the barista became an obsolete model, the venezia and other models have retained essentially the original design, and differences are primarily cosmetic or at the user interface. Under the hood, is pretty much the same system and parts. This is a good thing because the basic design is robust and makes good espresso, and parts have been and should be available for some time. Espresso is made with heat and pressure, so the working environment is hostile and some parts will fail over time. I expect the venezia to last quite a while, with some care and maintenance. It is not difficult to make espresso with this manual machine. If you have never made espresso before, you will master it quickly and soon discover that you can make shots, lattes and cappuccinos as good as you will get in most cafes. With the right ingredients, you can make many permutations of these basic drinks as sold in modern cafes.

This is very similar to my old starbucks barista, which gave out after using it every day for 5 years. I am so happy to have a new one and love my morning lattes.

Pressurized portafilter: patented filter holder ensures the perfect extraction of espresso

A strong, boiler-based espresso machine that’s just right for the price.

They just don’t build them like they use to. I had the same model from 15 years ago and that thing was rock solid. This version, though working fine but slightly noising, the more fragile buttons and the sounds gives you the feeling its going to keel over any minute.

We have had a few small espresso makers. . Some that have failed after a year. But i must say this esperesso makerby saeco so far , makes the best coffee i have had with a nice heady creama. There is very short wait before you can start up and use. It is simple and no fuss and for the price.

I had great expectations for this machine, but the truth is that it is complicated to operate. The coffee is good, but not strong enough to make a good espresso. It is more like a water down espresso. It is not coffee shop quality coffee. Also, the device for the foam (froth) is located on the left side of the machine, and this makes it uncomfortable for those like me who are not lefty. It is also too close to the bottom making it hard to froth your milk if you don’t have a small froth container. The machine looks great on my counter.

This little machine has served 6,000 expressos (400 days*15 expressos/day) and still runs great. No leak, simple to use, easy to clean. Update: after 3 years serving thousands of expresso, machine is still easy to use, does not leak, heats up quickly.

This is a great machine for this price. It heats up quickly, makes a good espresso and foams milk much faster than my previous machine which had a similar price point. I am very happy with my purchase.

Steam wand with pannarello attachment: manually froths milk or produces hot water

So i am guessing that by the time you are on this site that you have read all of the reviews, so this may just be a repeat of what you have read, but here it goes. . I have been making espresso’s with this machine for years now, and have gone through three of them. I guess the reason i keep going back to this one is that for the bucks, it has the best bang. Sure, others look fancier, have more bells and whistles, and, cost alot more. I have now had three in the past 20 years or so. I have owned one other brand, that lasted about two years. For some reason i could not bring myself to purchase a ‘box store’ delongi or krup (though i bought a real cheap one to travel with and it never gave me a satisfying cup). So, when the portifilter started whistling and leaking, i knew it was time to replace yet another saeco. I shopped and shopped and wanted to get a ‘better’ one, but when it came down to it, went back to this one.

Love it worth the money and makes great latte’s.

I was afraid when philips acquired saeco that the quality would suffer but it’s as good as the one i bought in italy 15 years ago.

Great machine and easy to use. Consistent shots, good froth and very consistent machine for the price. Very similar to the old starbucks barista machine.

The pump on this broke after just over a year – it became really fussy about the grinds. I took everything apart according to the instructions, and gave it a good clean, which didn’t help at all. It would produce espresso about 1/10 attempts, and the rest of the time just make noise and not push any water through.

This machine does a nice job of brewing consistent, decent espresso, but. The steamer button stopped working within a few months of purchase. Because i use it every day, i need a machine that will hold up.

Ese pod adaptor: capable of handling single serve prepackaged shots (pods)

Excellent espresso coffee, downpart: has very slow warming time, and it has an uncomfortable way for refilling water reservoir, overall is a nice espresso machine.

Easy cleaning: removable 68 oz.
