DeLonghi Kmix 15 Bars Pump Espresso Maker – Mean green bean machine

Awesome machine and easy to use. I really like that you can steam milk too for cappuccinos. I recommend this to anone that wants a decent espresso machine.

This is my first espresso machine. After a month of casual use, so far so good. Obviously, time will tell, but i’m initially happy with my investment. Not so happy about my slow turn to the dark side of caffeine.

If you are reading this it is because you are considering purchasing this product, because it’s in your price range. Sure there are, i worked behind one for years when i worked at ‘fourbucks’ are there worse ones?. All i can say is, if you are looking for a great machine that produces a great product for under 1000 dollars, you can stop looking and add it to your cart. I also must admit that the design is amazing to. I bought one in that bright glossy orange. Here are the specifications for the DeLonghi Kmix 15 Bars Pump Espresso Maker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Long lasting and durable die-cast aluminum exterior
  • Easily prepares latte and cappuccino with the swivel jet frother, for perfect drinks every time
  • Use convenient pods or ground coffee with the patented dual function filter holder
  • 15 Bar pressure
  • Swivel jet frother with adjustable steam emission

Smaller than expected – it’s clearly a single person item.

I am an espresso novice but i’ve been studying my ass off on everything from grind feel, how to pull & time the perfect espresso shot to watching machine & burr grinder reviews. Being unable & probably too inexperienced to afford a rancilio i had decided to try to pick up a deal on a slightly used or refurbished gaggia or francis francis non iper x5, x3 or x1. Dilema, just couldn’t find one than wasn’t older than dirt for under 150. Then miracle of miracles i see the kmix on amazon prime (open box, used like new) for 149. Here’s how my first pull went. I used single origin uganda bugiso (not the freshest beans either) & i was also hindered in that i’m still using a blade grinder. I grind, stop, shake, grind while trying to get the consistency & not heat the grind. First pull was a little fast but triple layers, decent crema and neither sour nor bitter.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great Espresso Every Time
  • Great little unit
  • LOVE the Yellow!

I bought this machine to replace my beloved francis francis x5 which lasted for five or six years. I love that this machine has similar features as the francis francis x5:1. You can choose between ese espresso pods or ground espresso2. The steam wand has an optional sleeve to simplify foaming – remember to clean underneath it. The steam function has a dial to open and close the steam vent4. It comes in a bright yellow color – a selection of colors are offered, but i love the yellowit makes espresso just fine and the crema is pretty good. Note: when using ground espresso, you need to remove the holder slowly or the steam/pressure will blow out the used grounds. I place a sponge on the collection tray when removing the holder. I don’t like that the steam wand without the sleeve is really tiny.

Very easy to use, fast compared to the la pavoni, excellent extraction and great crema. Previous revues mentioning brief life spans are worrying, but so far so good.

Bonus,it doesn’t take up a lot of space. Only thing i don’t like is you have to heat up the machine before making your coffee. It does make a very good cup of coffee.

I’ve now had this machine for just over four years. I was initially apprehensive due to reviews saying that the boiler and pump would die quickly, but so far it has performed very reliably with no issues. I do not regularly use the steam wand, mainly just using the espresso function, so maybe if i were to steam more things it would have issues. I have noticed now that it’s getting older it makes some more hissing noises, i assume from gaskets in the initial stages of failure, but otherwise it’s still going strong. If the research pans out that the quality is still good, i anticipate replacing this machine with another kmix when the time comes.

I must have spent five days reading reviews and comparing units before purchasing this for my wife. I wanted to get her something she would love but would also be something of quality. We have had our unit for 6 months now, use it ever day, sometimes twice a day, and its been flawless. Read all of the reviews and i can only assume some people got bad units or they have bad water. We have been very diligent in using only filtered water with ours. My two complaints are that the amount of space between the catch plate and the bottom of the grind housing is quite small. We had to go buy a special cup to make it fit. Also, the steam pipe is a little low. You wont be able to get anything tall in it unless you put the unit at the end of the counter like we did. I only gave it four starts because i would think for the money the spacing issues would have been thought out a little better.

I’ve had this little cutie pie of an espresso maker for a while now, and i love it. It’s cute, compact, and makes the perfect cup of java every time. This is my first machine, and i am happy to say that i now know what ‘crema’ is; and while an investment, this machine has paid for itself with the money i’ve saved from not paying for a $2-$3 a day for coffee. I bought it in bright green for a nice pop o’ color in the kitchen.

I purchased this espresso machine in january of 2012. The metal of the filter has bent. The machine now leaks when turned on and does not produce as much foam.

Awesome machine, we have one in our office and have used it about 20x a day for the last year without any issues (teal blue). I love it so much, i bought one for my home. Aesthetically, i decided to go with the stainless steel model. Unfortuantely, the stainless steel gets so hot i scorched my arm resting it against the machine. The colored models use a composite/plastic material on the side, which protect you from the heating elements inside the machine. Read the instructions, takes a sec to understand the blinky lights. If you really have that much of a problem, maybe you should stick to folgers coffee, classic roast, 48 ounce. You probably don’t deserve to enjoy a delectable shot or two of espresso, and good luck steaming any milk for that latte :).

This espresso machine is very pretty and works fine, but it came dented.

This darling little thing is just what i needed. I received this as a gift from my mother, and after about 6 weeks, i’m thoroughly sold on this. I did have experience on several different commercial-grade machines, so getting the hang of using this wasn’t too hard. I get great steam pressure, which creates awesome foam. I neglected to buy a steam pitcher, but the small pyrex measuring cup that i have does a good enough job of both fitting under the steam wand and leaving room for the liquid to expand. And the machine delivers beautiful crema. I haven’t pulled a bad shot of espresso, yet. A few other reviewers mentioned that the machine was noisy. It’s a little loud, but i moved it to a different space on the counter (away from the flatware drawer) and i barely hear the noise anymore.

After my $500 dollar breville broke after two years, i started shopping around for something good and not insanely expensive. I tried a cheaper version from my local store, and it did not deliver any foam/power. Then, saw this gorgeous little yellow number at crate and barrel and fell in love. Now, i got one for my mom as a gift. Every visitor that uses this machine in my house loves it and can’t believe what great espresso and what powerful foam it yields. A perfect machine that does not cost $1000. The instructions are well designed and simple and the machine is likewise straightforward and excellent. It also looks cuter and takes up half the counter space than most other machines.

I used to own a coffee shop. I wanted to still have the ability to make special coffee drinks. This machine is easy to use and is very versatile.

1 month operation: product was easy to setup. The instcructions are clear. I may need a better coffee grinder to get the fineness needed for the best espresso.

Beautiful machine, easy to use after getting used to it after a few times. I bought it ‘used’ but it was a new display model like brand new. I am not completely satisfied with the coffee it makes especially not having good results with foaming the milk for lattes.

The steamer metal tube is way too short. Otherwise, is a great machine.

I honestly love this machine (works great, it’s fast & easy to use & it’s pink) and i would have given a 5 star review if the water tank was larger & if the filter holders were different, which is my main complaint). The ‘patented dual function filter holder’ provided with the machine comes out of the filter holder too easily and i’m constantly having to dig it out of the trash when i empty it. In fact, one of the 1st times i emptied the filter/filter holder, i didn’t realize that the filter had fallen out until the next day. And now i just have 1 filter instead of 2. Now, i just expect the filter to fall out so i can dig it out so i can do it all over again tomorrow morning.

DeLonghi BCO264B Cafe Nero Combo Coffee and Espresso Maker – It’s great while it works

I was very pleased with purchase. First time ordering an item that was not new but i was very pleased. Might evenorder another but had forgotten what kind of warrantee comes with purchase ordered like this?.

Love this coffee/espresso maker so far.

Use it every day so far so good. Here are the specifications for the DeLonghi BCO264B Cafe Nero Combo Coffee and Espresso Maker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Make drip coffee, espresso, cappuccino and latte with this three-in-one machine. Saves counter space instead of having a separate drip coffee maker and espresso machine.
  • Wake up to the aroma of fresh-brewed coffee with the 24-hour programmable digital timer.
  • Easily prepares latte and cappuccino with the patented instant froth dispenser; lets you add frothed milk to the same cup as your coffee for a cappuccino
  • Durable and long lasting permanent gold-tone filter is specially designed to keep even the finest grounds out of coffee.
  • Choose the strength of coffee just the way you like it with the Accuflavor selector dial.

Suddenly just stopped working. The espresso maker is loud and vibrates terribly. I think i will try a moccamaster this time.

This combination coffee maker is the perfect addition to our kitchen. We have the ability to save precious counter space with the single device that brews excellent cappuccinos for my wife and coffee for me. A great addition to any kitchen where space is a premium.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Maybe too much on a product
  • I love my machine
  • worked for a while

No issues with the coffee maker, easy to use and it keeps the hot longer then the coffee makers i had in the past, nice unit.

Screw on coffee basket already rusting.

I love this machine it makes a cappuccino just as well as starbucks. My only complaint would be with the instruction manual isn’t very clear, i had to watch a video to understand it, but after that it was easy to use and clean.

We have never used a machine like this before so we read the directions carefully and followed them. Simple to use, coffee, espresso, lattes, cappucinos. All taste great and super easy to make.

Missing booklet and filterother than that it was a wonderful gift for my honeyi was impressed with how quickly i received.

I use it in an office environment. The first coffeemaker broke in under 12 months. But it’s relatively inexpensive, so if you don’t mind replacing the unit frequently, you won’t be disappointed. Consider this a disposable unit.

I have had this since feb 2010 (now aug 2010 ) and i use it every day for after diner espresso and cappuccino and ever morning for coffee i’ve had no problems with it. For this price point its worth the money there are better units out there but they cost more and are not coffee brewers and (pump style) espresso makers in one. It’s nice to have just one combo unit to save counter space.

The drip maker stopped working after a couple months.

I love the coffee side and my wife loves the expresso side.

I don’t overuse it, but for day to day coffee making, i couldn’t before pleased.

Overall, we’re satisfied with this product. The regular coffeemaker is easy to use. I particularly like the fact that the water reservoirs can be removed and filled right from the tap. Even if there’s residual water, it doesn’t leak out the bottom if you pull the tank out of the coffeemaker. And we like that the coffee grounds holder swings out away from the machine, making it easy to fill. The steamer works fine; i turn it on first thing in the am and it’s always ready to go no more than 10 minutes later. Our only challenge is the espresso maker. We still haven’t figured out the technique for making an espresso that’s not too strong or too weak. We’ll keep practicing; in the meantime, we’re just adding foamed milk to our regular coffee, which satisfies the need.

The instructions were a little tough, but i persevered and got everything up and running. It makes delicious coffee and the espresso had a nice crema. I used the frother to froth up almond milk and (again) once i figured it out, it worked perfectly. Overall, i’m very happy with my purchase. My only complaint, it was a demo model and the chlorine filter was not in the package.

Lasted two years and four weeks-the hot plate went out and i missed to warranty by four weeks. I won’t buy again it also went up in price. It really should last longer.

This is really worth to invest and enjoy. I have both worlds either coffee or espresso. And it’s just very convenient.

Our espresso maker quit working properly after about 4 months (very little water would come through the espresso maker). To the credit of delonghi this was under warranty and the process took only a couple weeks to receive the replacement. So, we do have the replacement. But we are also lacking the ‘peace of mind’ because of our uncertainty about how long this new unit will last. 4 months wasn’t very impressive. This obviously isn’t top of the line, but we anticipated it would last more than 4 months for the money spent.

DeLonghi GM6000 Gelato Maker : Just okay.

This little baby makes the best frozen concoction i have ever had. You have to adjust recipes to your own taste, but it is well worth it.

Looks great and does everything it’s supposed to do.

DeLonghi GM6000 Gelato Maker with Self-Refrigerating Compressor

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • No waiting for delicious authentic gelato with the self-refrigerating compressor
  • Immediately brings ingredients to temperatures below freezing and allows you to make multiple batches continuously
  • Produces the perfect consistency by effectively mixing ingredients from top to bottom with the patented mixing paddle
  • Easy serving and cleanup with removable stainless steel bowl
  • Energy-saving with efficient R134A refrigerant gas, it doesn’t deplete the ozone layer. It is non-toxic, non-flammable and non-corrosive

First unit came with some cosmetic damage. Amazon immediately shipped replacement unit and paid for return shipment, just dropped it off at the ups store. We’ve had the unit for a few weeks and have made many batches. It comes out smooth and dense just like the gelato i have had on trips to italy.

This is an easy, dependable machine, making great ice cream every time. It is a little noisy, but not as bad as others we tried. We keep ours in the bathroom next to the kitchen so we can let it run behind a closed door. It’s capacity is small, just one quart. At first this seemed like a drawback, but as it turns out, we do a lot more experimenting (potato chip vanilla ice cream). Because it is ready whenever and can make batch after batch i would recommend spending the money on this rather than the type with a freezable insert. This is also a very solid machine. We have had 2 different machines of our own and borrowed some from friends, this is by far the easiest to use, and not fragile, like some others.

This gelato maker is very easy to use. It comes with clear directions and a great recipe book. I have made 6 different batches of gelato in the last 4 or 5 weeks, with each result even better than the last, as i experiment with different flavors and add-ins. The compressor is a little loud, like using a mixer or blender. It’s easy to operate and cleans up easily, too. It’s large, and does take up a lot of counter space, so be prepared for that.

DeLonghi GM6000 Gelato Maker with Self-Refrigerating Compressor : My ten year old makes the recipes ahead and makes delicious gelato for us the next day. I love his enthusiasm for following directions. The results are most excellent.

I’ve been using this for several years. It is absolutely great for making gelato or ice cream or to simply chill or ice any liquid. Simply pour the ingredients in, turn the dial and in 5 to 15 minutes you have exactly what you want. For the keep it simple crowd, it’s amazing how juice or nectar quickly turns into a tasty treat. And, for the more adventurous, almost any combination of ingredients can provide an interesting outcome. I’ve been using it daily for about 10 years and it never fails. And it’s simple to clean, especially if you do so right after using it. If this dies, i will definitely get another one.

Ordered this in february, 2012. Some reviews concerned me but i followed the directions in the manual as well as some printed inserts about allowing the machine to remain upright and undisturbed at least one hour before using if the unit had to be moved before use. I believe the refrigerant sealed inside needs to settle properly in order for the unit to function. I also make sure the inner bowl is seated properly and prepare the surface below the bowl with vodka as per the instructions. In any event, i have been using this machine to make fabulous gelato ever since. I set my kitchen timer to 22 minutes and the gelato is typically done before then. The machine makes a quality gelato while incporporating as little air as possible into the product. I’m grateful the unit produces only 1. I would probably gain weight otherwise.

We can’t get enough of our beloved gelato. This machine is a little bit loud, but it works great; makes the perfect size batch of gelato for the 2 of us.

My friends think i’m an overnight maestro, but the recipes are simple, as is modification. The lemon sorbetmy only wish is that the capacity was greater.

I hadn’t made ice cream in years because i hated the mess of salt and ice with my old machine. The summer heat motivated me to make ice cream again for the family, so i began to review products that would not require using ice. I came across the reviews of the delonghi gelato machine and was very tempted, but the cost was more than i originally wanted to spend for a maker. Plus, the small output kept me from jumping on it right away. I’m glad i did though — it’s been a big hit with the family and my relatives. I’ve made over 20 batches in a month — it’s so easy and tastes great. The machine cleans up easily too. As for my initial concerns, you get what you pay for i guess. Also, the batch size in not a problem because i always mix enough for two batches and make them back to back.

This was one of the best presents i ever bought for my spouse, who is absolutely enthralled with it. The machine is well made and very easy to use. It consistently turns out ice cream that is heads and tails better than anything you could buy in a store. We have enjoyed all the basic flavors (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry) and have experimented with more unusual varieties such as coconut chip, peach ginger snap, coffee and donuts, and blood orange sorbet. My 13-yr-old son has even gotten into the act – making coke slurpees. The machine is quick, quiet and easy to clean. It arrived in perfect condition. We find ourselves making ice cream on an almost daily basis – which may wreak havoc with our waistlines (but always puts s smile on our faces).

As a careful shopper, i spent a lot of time researching over the holidays for a good ice cream maker. I didn’t want the hassle of the hand-cranked ice/salt units nor the ones that required pre-freezing the mixing bowl, so i concentrated my search on the self-refrigerating/freezing units. Based on reviews on various cooking and ice cream making web sites, as well as sites such as amazon itself, i narrowed my top picks to three machines:the cuisinart ice-50bc supreme ice cream makerthe whynter ic-2l sno 2-quart ice cream maker (oem for the lello 4090 gelato pro quart ice cream maker)the delonghi gm6000all three models are in the $200-$300 price range and received top marks from the various review sites. I am sure that one cannot go wrong buying any of these machines. For my personal choice however, i eliminated the cuisinart machine pretty quickly off my list due to the potential design problems of the mixer motor arm assembly mentioned in the reviews. Several reviewers commented on the weak mixer motor and/or mixing arm assembly. The problems might or might not be real. But i just didn’t want to risk it. I looked long and hard at the whynter/lello machine. Seems like a really good choice.

I gave this to my son and his wife for christmas, he made some ice cream that evening, since he didn’t have what he needed to make gelato. They have been making ice cream or gelato almost every day since they received it and absolutely love the machine.

So, eating gelato in italy, you can never compare the two but the machine comes really close to the texture. The machine is loud but not annoying loud. It’s quite big for such a small portion of gelato. I recommend putting the gelato in the freezer after the process. It comes out with a better texture. No ice cream maker comes close with making gelato. Only down side, yes the center piece is plastic, so you really have to watch the mixing process.

We bought this ice cream maker after trying less expensive ice cream makers. The difference is how the ice cream is frozen. This ice cream maker plugs in and freezes the ice cream in the unit. Cheaper ice cream makers require the user to place the mixing bowl in the freezer with the plan being that the frozen bowl will freeze the ice cream. Freezer bowls never got the ice cream cold enough for my taste, the consistency was more like a milk shake than ice cream. This model actually churns and freezes the ice cream with great results. I would buy again and will recommend it to friends.

This is a very good, easy to use machine. We followed the recipes and they turned out amazing. Having lived in rome, there is nothing that compares to gelato there, perhaps the authenticity of italianingredients makes the difference, but we made four gelatos in four nights and loved every one of them. Definitely transported us back to those heavenly times. We tried a recipe by giada which called for too much recipe for the container but will cut it down next timeand loved it the best (nutella gelato). I would definitely recommend this product as user friendly, nottoo noisy as people commented on other brands, and we are very happy we bought itnow my husband wants a $19,000 gelato display casebon appetito.

Made nutella gelato it’s our fav.

This was one of the best things i have ever bought. It perfoms just like it is supposed to. The plastic paddle gives me some cause for alarm, it really is not heavy duty. I just make sure i watch it when it gets close to the time for the freezing to stop.

Followed the book recipe for dairy gelato using a local dairy’s whole chocolate milk, reduced sugar a little & 1st batch too sweet but done in 20 minutes. 2nd batch with just a squirt of agave syrup instead of sugar- perfection. It’s a little louder than i anticipated, but so worth it. Totally earns it’s counter space. Small batch size allows experimentation without huge investment in ingredients.

Great price plus the gelato it churns comes out awesome tasting and a good quality. Had no problems being shipped came in a good condition but i did purchase another paddle just in case i need another paddle if the current one breaks.

Received my gelato maker with lightning speed after placing order. However, my machine was faulty and stopped churning during the first batch. Contacted amazon and returned faulty machine two days later. Amazon sent a replacement upon notificztion. Again fast shipping and the replacement works great. Makes great gelato and haven’t had any problems. We are working this machine daily since we received it. The temperature here has been in the triple digits thus making the gelato very refreshing.

DeLonghi RO2058 6-Slice Convection Toaster Oven, Love it!

My ovens have been out of commission for the past 6 weeks. I never realized how often i used my ovens until i had to wait for a ‘back ordered’ part. Bought this model as it had everything i wanted and the price was right. I think it’s a great toaster oven/ convection oven broiler.

I used b&d toaster ovens for years. Now products so cheaply made i looked for alternative. Was leery at first because of price, but turned out this product to be well worth the higher price point. Busy life means cooking on weekend and reheating during the week. Use daily and get results not available nuking leftovers. Never use house oven anymore.

This product had been a workhorse.

Comments from buyers

“It got to me super fast and completely undamaged
, love our DeLonghi
, Best toaster oven on the market – durable and cooks to perfection

Prefect for every day dinners – the convection is great for roasts, turkeys, etc. I’ve used delonghi products for years – they are high quality and priced right.

Works very well as a toaster oven/boiler and the regular oven, convection feature doesn’t really seem to make that much of a difference.

My third delonghi convection toaster over. Bigger than the older models.

We are really enjoying this toaster oven with rotisserie. The only feature i really don’t like is that the racks do not pull out when i open the door and then they don’t have a stop on them so that they fall out if pulled out just a little too far. The rotisseie has worked beautifully for a whole chicken, a pork loin roast and a turkey breast. Toasting is not as even as a standard toaster, but if you place your bread, english muffin, etc in the positions recommended in the booklet it does a passable job.

We purchased this from amazon after our previous one (exactly like this one) died. We actually purchased another toaster oven (from a different retailer) that was supposed to have similar features, but we hated it. So, we returned that one, and purchased this one since we knew we liked it.

I have used it to cook finger foods for my son such as french toast, fish sticks, hash browns, and tator tots. It has also worked wonderful for chicken and scalloped potatoes. So nice no having to turn on the oven to cook quick meals for my toddler. Fits beautiful on my counter without taking up a lot of space, and with the tabs on the back you don’t have to pull the unit out from your wall because of the heat it’s already built in. This is my first toaster over and i have been wondering how i lived without one. I have yet to use the rotisserie but expect to soon.

This is a good looking, solid unit. Far better than the black and decker convection i paid more for. Haven’t used the rotisserie yet, and like other reviewers it is strange the temperature doesn’t go higher. Overall, i think it will have a decent lifespan.

Bought for my elderly mother for christmas due to good looks and ergonomic knobs; writing still a little to faint for her vision, but better than most. A couple points that could be better: do not like the fact that cannot stop or adjust toast cycle once starts; must wait for timer to go through cycle. Do not like the fact that multiple knobs have to be in certain positions in order to perform each function, e. However, with simple instructions i think she will be able to get this right.

This toaster oven is like a mini convection oven. It’s great because i don’t have to heat the house up to bake. It does cakes better than my big oven, too. Not the greatest for toast, and only small items fit in the rotisserie over the bake pan. But, both functions perform adequately.

I got this oven a few weeks ago, and wow, am i impressed. On top of getting it for a great price, this large size oven comes with a rotisserie, broil pan, a cookie sheet and 2 racks. So far i’ve used it to bake chicken, a whole large frozen pizza, croissants, and a few other dishes. It’s a bit larger than your average toaster oven, but with all it does, i don’t mind the extra size since i don’t have an actual oven. Only downsides are that like most toaster/countertop ovens the exterior gets hot; and the food near the door doesn’t bake/brown at the same rate (i just turned the food midway), but it’s not a huge difference anyway. Excellent substitute oven for a door room or small apt.

Had same model before for many years and loved it. That’s why, when it longer worked right, i ordered another one.

My 88 y/o mom had this model and after 5 years of daily use it needed to be replaced. She was thrilled to get the exact same model because she already knew how to use it.

I have been very disappointed in this oven. I had a delonghi oven that i bought several years ago and it was a great oven, but the knob wore out and i had to use pliers to turn it off and on. The old oven was so much better and toasted the bread much faster. This one takes a long time to toast bread and is far more flemzy and the rotisserie doesn’t have enough power to keep even light weight meat turning. I also had bought a delonghi coffee pot and i don’t think it is very good quality either. I will never buy another delonghi product again.

I purchased this same item in the ‘last century’. After reading about and shopping for newer models of convection/toaster ovens i decided to go with delonghi again. It works very well and i am pleased.

For the price, you get what you pay for. Ithe biggest down fall is that the racks do not have a safety catch at the back, so when you pull the rack out to flip what you’re cooking. The rack will fall out and you potentially will lose your meal.

The purpose of our purchase of this oven was to use the microwave less. Also to keep the kitchen cooler in the summer, we live near phoenix and it is the perfect way to bake without all the heat. Finding baking pans has been a problem. The rotisserie is a big disappointment, as it is to close to the top of the oven, so have never used it. I tried to put a roast on it, but the roast was to big for this purpose, it was not a very big roast, guess it is only for bite size pieces. I will try it again someday, to be able to find a way to make it work. I love the way it reheats pizza, crisp crust. It reheats fast without making leftovers soggy. Bakes fast and well, only remember it is a small oven, you have to change the way you use this oven compared to the old standby oven, keep them both.

I also have a delonghi space heater that i love.

This is one great little oven for all sorts of heating and cooking. The convection feature is especially good because it ‘crisps’ the outside of the food while slowly cooking the ‘inside. ‘i am so glad i bought it and many thanks, amazon, for being such a marvelous way to shop without running all over the place.

Bought it for mom, she loves it for the smaller cooking tasks, much better than heating up the big oven.

My wife and i have had a delonghi toaster oven in our house since before we were married. It has been the most-used and depended on piece of kitchen equipment that we have (except for the coffee maker). I use this 5-10x more than the microwave and it never disappoints. The convection feature is a necessity for making oven-baked chicken, baked potatoes, or anything that you’d like to have cooked with a consistent and even temperature. I actually bought two of these and have a brand new one sitting in its unopened box because we wouldn’t want to go even a day without one of these readily available.

I use it every day, it is my 2nd one in about 15 years. I would not use anything else.

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.

DeLonghi ESAM5500B Perfecta Digital Super Automatic Espresso Machine – Five Stars

I bought this for my husband as a christmas gift several years ago. Let me say that this has turned into our favorite investment. And i say this because of the high cost of the machine. We have not had any trouble with it— nothing and we use it almost daily.

It can made the coffee more hot but it is what it is.

Made our first cappuccinos this morning, and they were great. Machine is about as automatic as you can get. Our only concern is — can we stop making and drinking the cappuccinos and lattes.

I have no complaints about that. Taste is relative, so i can understand how some may like it less than others, but i have no complaints about the coffee. The frothed milk is perfect, the coffee tastes just like it should. We use it every day, and we all but stopped buying any coffee from espresso stands. I updated this review to 3 stars in fairness for just how much we actually enjoy using this unit. However, i’ll leave the terrible experience we had with the customer support below for reference. I think there should be more to a great product that it’s nominal performance. Quality is also defined by reliability and customer service. Delonghi boasts striving for excellence, but they fail miserably.

I purchased this machine as a replacement for another delonghi espresso maker (which is 5 years old and still works great. And my sister now loves it). The packaging it comes in is first rate and the machine arrived in perfect condition. I only make espresso with it so i can’t dispute the claims of others talking about lukewarm milk in their latte and cappuccino. My experience with the espresso is that the delonghi machines still make a great cup of espresso, no matter what your taste. I experimented with the settings until it made the cup i was looking for (double-shot, extra strong). Obviously the beans you choose have a big effect on the taste of your espresso. I have only had the machine for a couple of months so i can’t testify to it’s longevity, but hopefully it lasts as long as my previous machine. No problems cleaning or leaking so far.

I don’t know how long we’ve had this model, maybe upwards of 15 years. It’s a member of the family, as much as an inanimate object can be, anyway. It enhances your life and does so much to make you happy, that you are happy to give it the care that it demands lol. So, here’s what i’ve come to expect with the machine: it dies every two years. It was purchased at williams & sonoma with their lifetime guarantee. So for the first couple two-year cycles, i was able to just take it back and exchange it. Finally, they told me i had gotten my last exchange, and marked the receipt likewise. They had been pretty decent about it up til then. So i went the warrantee route (that particular exchange still had a few months left on the two-year warranty. ) delonghi sent me a box and directions where to send it. The repair people were, anyway.

  • Makes excellent coffee, but take poor customer service into account when considering this unit.
  • Our Favorite appliance!
  • *** 5-Star Customer service *** Delonghi fan for life ***

Our second delonghi and we love it as much as the first. Extremely easy to use and cleanup is simple. The wife and kids absolutely love the ease of the cappuccino maker and i like the detachable milk container that makes that possible. My only request would be the ability to change a strength or size setting after the start button is pushed. With the older model rotary dials that was possible. With the electronic it is not. It just means i have to pay more attention when getting my cup after someone else has gotten theirs.

I have had my machine for almost 5 years, and considering the other reviews, i consider myself lucky that it is lasting as long as it is. The machine makes decent coffee, heavy on the caffeine, but as mentioned in other reviews, it is not hot enough. The milk frother isn’t worth much as the milk is barely frothed and is very inconsistent; some days the frother works, some days it doesn’t, even though my milk (whole) always comes straight from the refrigerator. To battle this after 4 years, i bought a $100 nestle aeroccino which makes lovely froth for a real cappuccino. I cannot speak for the latte milk setting as i have never used it. As for everyday use, i find the machine finicky; error messages (including cleaning messages) will pop up mid-cycle, and the machine will not resume where it was in the cycle, i will have to start the drink over. Cleaning is relatively easy, but it must be done by hand. I used to stick the milk container (bottom only) in the dishwasher, but it warped, and i was forced to buy a new expensive container. I have also had the machine spout coffee through the bottom, but this problem was easily fixed with a shop-vac. All in all, the coffee is decent, but not worth the price of the machine.

I have one now here in the us and one in my home in germany. Makes you miss starbucks a little less.

My wife and i both work from home and love good coffee. We drink many coffees throughout the entire day from 5am until about 5pm. And the delongi perfecta is great. It delivers a consistent coffee every time it’s a great home, entry-level espresso machine. It is not a professional espresso machine that you see for $5k+ but for the price it’s perfect. We have had ours for about 6 years and have had no major issues. Standard servicing every 3rd year but that is to be expected.

Best purchase in a long time.

The best espresso machine i ever had, i had three regular espresso machines the past 20 years, i never had the quality of the coffee drink like i got from the delonghi esam55oob, i am very happy i bought it, totally recommend it.

I just love pressing a button and having a perfect cup of latte every time. I’ve read mixed reviews of this machine, but no complaints from me.

Works great use lavazza super cremation beans like being in italy.

Yes, my niece bought a nesspresso machine and says it is great. I am sure it is if you want to buy little pouches of coffee juice to make your shot every morning. The delonghi awesome takes the beans of your choice, your milk, and does all the work to make you a cappuccino, cafelatte, or espresso. For every 10 drinks or so, you do need to empty the grounds container, add water, add some beans. Between milk based drinks you should push the clean button for a few seconds (oh my, work, work, work). The one and only thing else that would improve it for my wife is to make the milk a touch hotter.

The best automatic expresso machine we have ever purchased. This is our third delonghi product and by far the best.

Expensive but actually saves money vs coffee shop. It should pay for itself in a year if you enjoy great coffee often. We caught a good deal on this and have been happy. We have had it 6 months now and put through 300 cappuccinos according to the statistics recorded by the machine. The machine easy to use and no issues so far. We use distilled water to avoid descaling which can be expensive if using their solution. We use glass coffee cups with wire like handles that we bought online and it is nice to see the cappuccino as it swirls in the cup and to see its different layers of milk, foam and coffee. Use whole coffee beans made for espresso for best taste. Know that a latte is more milk than foam and vise versa for a cappuccino. And also know that a macchiato is just hot milk with just enough coffee to leave a mark (‘marked milk’ hence the name) on top of the milk. The name cappuccino is an italian reference to a monks cap, or hat. Buy some shakers for cinnamon, cocoa etc. Know that nutmeg isn’t too good for cappuccinos as it it bitter and kills the foam. Use it for spiced drinks or maybe chocolate drinks.

Easily prepares latte and cappuccino with the patented “Single Touch” hot milk system.

Great espresso and love the milk management system.

I own 2 delonghi super automatics this one being our most recent. I make 6 or more espresso drinks per day on our house sometimes more. Two weeks ago the grinder broke or jammed don’t know. I contacted delonghi service who sent a white gloves padded shipping box and label right away. I mailed it fedex to the dallas service center unsure when i’d ever see it again. Today i was shocked to get a call from the delivery guy that my beloved espresso machine was left on my porch. Everything works great, problem solved. I know super automatics can be finicky and i’ve heard horror stories. Thankfully i didn’t have to experience one. Thank you delonghiotherwise for those looking we love this machine. Espressos and tall coffees are at the ready.

For the first 9 months life was good. Get up in the morning, press a button, and instant cappuccino. Then the milk frother started acting up. Not as foamy, not a steady stream, etc. Called delonghi, and customer service was great. We talked through the issues, and they determined it must be a problem with the foamer lid mechanics. ‘we’ll send you out a whole new lid’ they said. Awesome customer service, which it should be since it was so expensive, and less than a year old (considering the 2 year warranty). Well, 2 months later, and 3 phone calls later with lots of promises, still no foamer top.

Even ‘not coffee’ drinkers appreciate the taste.

Love the functionality and features, this is my third delonghi automatic, but after 6 weeks, the front door pops open by itself after turn-on, which stops it from making coffee, so i have to repeatedly close the door manually. Apparently, the internal mechanical tolerances are too tight.

I love this machine it is well worth the money. It is very easy to use and i get coffee that is like the coffee shop. This machine does both ground and beans. With the ground coffee you add it when you make it. With the beans their is a place to fill it up and you can use it over and over. The frothing milk is wonderful.

Easy-to-use digital control panel with programmable menu settings: adjust start time, auto off, clock, temperature, coffee strength

I’ve had my machine for approximately 2 weeks now, and so far i love it. It’s replacing my keurig rivo machine because i don’t want a pod system anymore, and i want a milk frother. This machine was easy to set up, and it’s easy to use. I haven’t changed any of the factory default settings for temperature or anything else yet, but i plan on doing so in the near future. I would like to change the water temperature, which is an available feature. I love the separate milk reservoir that cleans itself and can be kept in the fridge. The only thing it’s missing is a separate function for frothed milk only. Sometimes i like to add more frothed milk, but you can only do it while adding more coffee at the same time. But that is the only thing i’ve found so far that i don’t like. Overall great machine and i highly recommend it.

Grinds beans instantly for the freshest espresso with the patented “Direct-to-Brew” system.

No waiting between preparing espresso and cappuccino with the double boiler system.

DeLonghi ECAM23210SB Super Automatic Coffee Machine – Professional Results at Home

I’ve spent the last few weeks getting to know this coffee maker and i’m extremely pleased. This being my first de’longhi, there was a learning curve. You have four options for setting this up (likely unnecessary if you are already accustomed to their machines). There’s a quick start guide, a full manual, an included dvd, and a call center. I started with the quick start guide, but moved on to the full manual. Initial set up is easy and intuitive. The water tank is easily removed, filled, and replaced and it includes a water filter as well. Using just the quick start guide, i quickly made my first cup of coffee, but had some difficulty understanding how to set the length and how to increase the heat of the coffee. However, using the included manual, i was able to customize it until i got the perfect cup. Note that you can program the machine to a specific strength and length of coffee using the ‘my cup’ function.

This is a wonderful machine. Makes the best cup of coffee i have ever had.

We have been long time french press users. This guy has changed our mornings significantly. Instead of the boil, grind, pour and rest routine i press a button at it’s done. That is what i originally thought when receiving this. The positives are that it foams milk very well and you don’t have to be a barista to make velvet foam. It also has an excellent layer of crema on every pour. You can program it to you pour preference. I have significant experience with another fully automated system that we use at work. It is made by a different italian company and uses a carafe for milk. It has much larger reservoirs for water, and grounds. Here are the specifications for the DeLonghi ECAM23210SB Super Automatic Coffee Machine:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 15 bars of pressure
  • Stainless steel conical burr grinder
  • Height adjustable coffee spout to accommodate different sizes of cups
  • MAINTENANCE: De’Longhi machines require half the cleaning time of other brands, unlike competitor machines, which require chemical cleaning tablets monthly.
  • Hot Water Spout to be used for Tea or Hot Chocolate
  • Utilize De’Longhi’s specialized call center for help in setting up and maintaining your machine at 866-528-8323 (LatteBest)

Great product, makes delicious coffeefast delivery.

This espresso machine doesn’t feel like a cheap coffee maker, but it feels overly complex and expensive for the simple task of making a hot caffeinated beverage in the morning. For years, i’ve used nothing but a stainless french press and a hot water kettle to make my morning coffee. It takes about 5-10 minutes to prepare, and about 5 minutes to clean. This delonghi, as compact and automatic as it is, requires a steep learning curve for someone who has never used such a device. There are two instruction manuals, one of which is like a quick start guide, and the other doesn’t make a lot of sense until i read it over and over again. I’m an engineer, and feel this espresso machine is overkill unless you absolutely need espresso instead of regular coffee. Being a coffee drinker, i wasn’t aware that the serving size of espresso is only a few ounces compared to 1-2 mugs. Because i didn’t have coffee beans at the time, i used pre-ground coffee. The instructions stated to only use 1 scoop per cup. So i poured it into the top funnel and followed the procedures and ended up with (to me) a shot glass sized serving of well infused espresso (even had a lot of foam on the top).

Reviews from purchasers :

  • I would buy it again
  • GREAT coffee maker
  • This is a wonderful machine. Makes the best cup of coffee I

I love good coffee and frequently drink espresso (and espresso based beverages), but have never owned my own espresso maker before. This was my first foray into being my own barista, and what can i say?. The short and sweet version is that this machine makes excellent espresso that is neither too astringent nor too bland. I didn’t find the device difficult to setup or use. The ‘quick guide’ provided along with a far more detailed manual had me up and running in about 10 minutes. The machine turns on and is ready to brew steaming-hot espresso in about 60 seconds. What takes a bit longer is learning all of the various settings. These include the fineness of the grind of the beans, how long the ‘pull’ is for the espresso (more or less coffee volume), and the water temperature. Once you have things set up the way you like, you don’t have to keep going back and making changes–the machine remembers your last used setting.

We’ve been using this daily for several months without any big complaints. I wish beans fed into the grinder better. I have to stand there and poke them in with the tool they give you. Hopefully that extend the life of the product.

Although this high-end luxury cappuccino/espresso/cocoa/tea machine won’t replace my 12-cup coffeemaker for a crowd, it’s not meant to. I did a bit of investigating and i agree that although you have to keep the instruction manual handy, this is less intimidating to operate than many similar machines (for example, jura brands). The test coffee i brewed was full-bodied, blue bottle, similar to blue bottle coffee – three africans blend (whole beans coffee), 8 oz. A little too strong because i set it to the #5 or highest strength of bean. The built-in coffee grinder (hallelujah, so civilized) squeezes the maximum jolt from the beans. I also tried the milk froth setting after watching a few barista videos online from whole latte love and steve the coffee geek. The frothy milk was perfect for cappuccinos/lattes and hot cocoa from williams-sonoma. The froth wand is a bit too short and unwieldy, so you have to dip it way down in the milk and fiddle with it to get the correct setting. However, with such a powerhouse compact machine, this is a minor gripe and just a caution.

The last time i checked, the market was literally flooded with automatic coffee machines and expresso makers from every price point. Models with bells and whistles ranging from the basic functions, to starting your car (i jest). The one thing they all have in common is that they make coffee (some extremely better than others). I bet dollars to donuts you’re probably asking yourself right about now “so why should i spend $1000 on a coffee maker, when i can get a mr. Coffee at wally mart for $15 bucks?. And my answer to that is you shouldn’t because you’re clearly not the intended market delonghi wants to sell their products to. The delonghi ecam23210sb is for those who appreciate, style, simplicity quality workmanship convenience, and class. To put my context into marketable terminology i would say, if apple were going to make an expresso/coffee maker, i would imagine it would look and function very much like this. Not only does this machine make a killer cup of ‘joe’, it also makes a mean cup of expresso that will put any milan bistro to shame. When i first unboxed the machine i was a little intimidated, however once i went over the operating literature, apprehensions i previously held soon dissipated.

This machine is a beast – and i mean that in the most positive way ever. Substantial, impressive, and all encompassing – just a few words to describe this delonghi coffee machine. At the push of a button you can grind your beans based upon your taste preference; make an espresso, cappuccino, latte, or just a coffee and all will happen automatically, with the exception of the milk frothing. Pretty slickthere is an internal water reservoir which holds 60 ounces of water which is quite generous compared to other similar models. You can use either whole beans (and grind to your preference) or use pre-ground coffee beans. You just tell the machine which. There is also a steam wand for frothing milk or cream for your drinks. The frothing wand is pretty powerful and long enough to give you a little operating room around the machine. Included also is a coffee infuser which is removable and does need to be cleaned regularly. At the front of the machine there is a drip/spill tray which is great for overfills or little drips.

 this delonghi magnifica s (ecam 23210sb) espresso machine does a great job making delicious espresso drinks, and it is really easy to use – once you get it set up. In my video i demo the process of making espresso with steamed milk and go over some basics, pros, and cons. ********pros:*the coffee is delicious and nearly foolproof once you learn the machine, and results are consistent*operation is fairly quick: it took 1 minute 15 seconds to power up & get ready, 55 seconds to grind & brew the largest espresso*unit is flexible: you can use ground or whole bean coffee; machine adjusts for temperature control, hard/soft water management, brew strength, serving size, etc. *quality grinder: the machine houses a burr grinder for precise & excellent grinding, and is adjustable for coarseness*relatively compact: for a double espresso brewer, the unit isn’t too bigcons:*there is a learning curve, and initial setup in particular is somewhat cumbersome using the buttons and icon menus that aren’t always very intuitive. Once you set it up, however, it is pretty simple to operate with a bit of practice*the machine is almost entirely plastic. For the price, i was expecting a bit more metal. Still, it seems durable and well made. ***********overall, this is a really nice machine that should appeal to inexperienced home users, or anyone looking for super easy espresso results, willing to pay for quality automated operation from a respected brand. Most importantly, the coffee consistently tastes wonderful, and getting great results requires little effort from the operator. In addition, the high quality burr grinder, flexibility, and full automation make this a really nice espresso maker with a price tag to match.

This is a not cheap coffee makers. I have always had cheap coffee makers. But if you can justify the expense, this will make some great coffee. I am still working on what i can do with it, but it is dead easy. Cappuccino/espresso in barely more time than it takes for a k-cup. The water container isn’t huge, so that needs to be filled about once every 2 days for me. That isn’t a big deal, but if you have a number of coffee drinkers you will have to re-fill more often. But it does seem small compared to the coffee bean and used grounds storage, which have enough space for about a week or so. This is also a pretty compact machine. So i think the size of the water container makes is a trade off to size.

I admit that i have had several years’ experience with espresso machines, so it did not take long for me to get this delonghi machine up and running. I did, however, ask a friend with no experience whatsoever to try it out and she had no trouble at all making us both lovely cappuccinos using the instruction booklet that comes with the machine. If anything, this machine is easier to use that most i have had experience with. I did not have any previous experience with an automatic coffee bean grinder, and have always ground my own beans in a separate grinder. This delonghi does an absolutely superb job of grinding beans just prior to brewing and is much less noisy than my old grinder. This makes the coffee as good (if not better) than any fancy coffees you can buy at your local coffee shop. The water reservoir is large, easy to fill and refill, and is simple to clean. The steamer creates a lot of steam fast to froth milk , and you are able to set the brew strength from mild to strong to make coffee to suit any number of users. I use a very strong coffee (french roast), and i make either a latte or a cappuccino for myself every morning. After using this machine for several weeks, i have had no problems whatsoever.

The only complaint is the water reservoir needs to be larger but is easy to fillif you love a great cup of coffee this is your machine.

This makes a delicious cup of coffee. When first setting this machine up, i was worried it was going to be too complicated to use. It seemed to have so many controls and buttons and ways to configure things. But, once i started to play with it, i found it much, much easier to work with than my first impression of it. Along with an instruction manual, this also comes with a dvd (just like some of the high end vehicles) which is basically a set of videos of the instruction manual spoken by a beautifully articulate female voice. Both the instruction manual and the dvd are easy to follow and understand. The machine comes with a built in bean grinder, so i can use my favorite whole beans and the machine will grind to order, each cup of coffee is freshly ground. Very easythe water compartment is large enough to be able to make several cups of coffee. And it’s easy to fill, just remove the container, fill with water and it pops back in the machine.

There’s no other way to say it. Put whole coffee beans in the top, press a couple buttons, and out comes a cup of espresso just the strength and size you like. Press another button and you can perfectly steam milk and creamer to make a yummy latte. So far we’ve made espressos, cappuccinos, and lattes. I stock it with full-strength whole beans, and then there’s a little area in the top where with the twist of a knob i can tell the machine to use the already ground beans and make a decaf cup if i like. Frankly, there’s no need to go to starbucks. I can easily make a magnificent cup of coffee at home. I hope this video review helps you know what to expect. It does take a little longer to make a cup and then froth the milk, but the quality of what is made is amazingupdate: service so-so.

 if you’d like to make at home some of the best coffee this side of twin peaks, then you’ll want to check out this new coffee maker from delonghi called the magnifica s. In my video i go over the main features, show what’s included, and even demo making a cup of espresso so you know exactly how long it takes and how loud the grinder sounds. I also give a tip on how to easily remove the infuser so you can clean it. There’s a lot to love about this machine:* grinds coffee beans with a stainless steel conical burr grinder and an adjustable grind dial* also takes pre-ground coffee* hot water and steam spout for making tea or frothing milk* removable, large 60 ounce water tank with water filter* removable coffee infuser for easy cleaning* removable water drip tray and coffee grind bin* control panel for making coffee choices and settings* adjustable coffee spout for different cup sizes* warming platform for cup/saucer storagethe coffee it makes tastes absolutely wonderful, with crema, and the additional steam wand for frothing milk allows you to make lots of different coffee drinks. Everything is accessible and easy to clean. The only trouble i’ve had with the unit is that soon after setting it up, the machine kept telling me the coffee grind bin was full — even when it was empty. I think the sensor must have been confused because after i cleaned the coffee infuser, the machine went back to proper operation. This is a great coffee maker. If you want a fantastic cup of coffee that’s super easy to make — pour in beans, place cup under spout, and press a button — i can’t think of a machine that will make you happier than this delonghi magnificent s. I hope this review and video are useful.

I never would have considered a home espresso /coffee machine due to the price but this one is pretty nifty. First of all, it doesn’t take any more counter space that the two keurigs that i’ve had. It’s a very attractive, stainless steel machine which just looks cool. I love fresh ground coffee so this fits the ticket. I don’t usually take the time to grind my own coffee unless it’s the weekend but this will do it for me. I’m also a big tea drinker so it’s very nice to have the 60 oz water well with hot water dispenser whenever i want it. And then there are the many adjustments as to strength of the coffee that i wouldn’t have paid attention to until it was an option here. And i really love that it will adjust to my favorite mug size. I admit that i’m stuck in a rut and always like to use the same mug. The downside is that this is a pretty expensive machine to have hanging around ‘just for coffee.

DeLonghi Kmix 10-Cup Drip Coffee Maker : I bought it for the COLOR

I am so pleased with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone. I debated over which color to go with aqua or yellow and i am so happy with the yellow. It brightens up my kitchen and is so darn pretty.I don’t find the coffee bitter and i used pre-ground. Perhaps if you grind your own beans, you could over-grind them and cause bitterness, the manual does warn against that. I get 3 cupsworth out of this coffe maker based off of my cup size and amount of milk to coffee ratio. The coffee comes out at a perfect temperature for me. I add milk and it isn’t luke warm after the addition, it is still pleasantly warm. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the space for the grounds is quite small.

Bought this over a year ago. And it’s been a great appliance to have in my kitchen. Bright color, cool design, but most importantly makes really good, hot coffee. Have never had to de-lime it, which surprised me. If there is any ‘negative’ about this machine, it does not have an automatic shut-off. . So be sure to unplug, or at least turn off before you head out. . I would recommend this for anyone (although i see the price is quite a bit more now).

This coffee maker is good looking. I enjoyed it for the most part, but it drips onto the hot plate when the carafe is removed. It can be messy for that reason. Also, today the heating element retired at the young age of 1 1/2 years.

I bought this for my husband. He loves yellow and we are retiring. We bought a new home and he wanted a yellow coffee maker. I don’t drink coffee, but he loves the color and he loves the way the machine works. It is great for him and our kids.

I had this coffee maker for two and half years and it stopped working. For the price i think it should last longer. Warning it does not make very hot coffee.

DeLonghi Kmix 10-Cup Drip Coffee Maker, Green : Great product and nice looking. Don’t know why so many negative reviews. Very happy with mine and haven’t had any issues. The warmer on top is not really to keep your coffee warm, but to warm your coffee cup as the hot water flows through during the brewing process. The smallest coffee maker i could find that comes in stainless steel. *****update******the 5 cup does not have the 2 hour auto shut-off switch. Checked the manual for this model. (the 10 cup has the auto shut-off feature).

I purchased the 5 cup coffee maker in that vibrant taxi cab color yellow and it arrived in 5 days. The color is extremely vivid, but does look good on a black granite counter top. My roommate chose that color and i regret that i did not order it in white, but it`s just so darn cute and efficient, i`ve decided to keep my mouth shut about it for now. I`m sure our next unrelated argument will somehow include me blurting out ‘yeah, but you got to choose that funky yellow color for the coffee maker. I`m pretty impressed by the unusually streamline design and solid construction. Think scandinavian minimalist- something you`d see sitting on the counter in a contemporary kitchen in sweden. The top looks like aluminum that has been triple plated chrome- not flimsy looking at all. When you tap your fingernails on it, it definitely doesn`t sound like cheap tin. The colored portion of the unit is aluminum but looks and feels like very thick high gloss enamel. You can use the gold mesh coffee screen that is supplied with the unit alone or add a paper filter for easier disposal of coffee grounds. The appliance is fairly small and fits under the 18 inch space below the cupboards on the counter top. You can lift the lid up about 2/3rds before it hits the bottom of your cupboards but you can still pour water into the unit if it is in a sideways position without pulling it out from against the wall to operate it. The carafe is sturdy, simple and easy to clean. Completely full, it holds exactly 2 normal cups/mugs of coffee so i`m not so sure why they call this a ‘5 cup’.

This coffee maker looks great, makes good coffee (without chemical aftertaste like my last one), but the design of the carafe could have been better. The plastic rim is mounted on the glass in such a way that it traps the last bit of liquid, even if you turn it completely upside down. About a teaspoon of liquid remains and is impossible to get out. Not a deal breaker for me, but a surprising design flaw in such a sleek machine. I like that it is just a coffee maker, no clock or other frills, just one simple on/off button, but i guess if you like to wake up to your fresh-brewed coffee, this machine is not for you. The permanent filter is great, though you can still use paper filters if you prefer.

I like the coffee this machine makes. Gave 4 stars because i got the unit on february 11 and now is march 10 and the descale light is already on. I have used filtered water only. It is still making the coffee in the same amount of time. I like the coffee and is good and hot. Noticed i can also use less coffee to make the same amount as i use to in my old coffee maker and is stronger from this unit.

Bought this in a hurry to replace a horrible conair cuisine coffee grinder brewing system which could not make a consistent cup of coffee. This delonghi is small compact and is the easiest cup of coffee you will ever make. The coffee drips extremely fast(not sure how that affects the brew quality) and very, very hot, no need to warm up your milk even. Pros: easy to use, very fast and very hot brewing. Very fashionablecons: hot plate stays hot. Not sure if the fast drip diminishes the coffee taste quality.

When i first saw a picture of this coffee maker i thought it was so funny looking. But, the more i looked at it and read the reviews, the more i liked it. I wanted a colorful coffee maker and this fits the bill. I also like the nickel/stainless metal. But, what i really love is how easy it is to make coffee. The area to pour the water is large enough that i never spill anymore. The area where you put the coffee is easily accessible, easy to clean and it fits into place nicely. It makes coffee quickly plus i can warm my cup on top. I didn’t want a coffee maker with a clock since i always unplug after making the coffee and drinking it. I didn’t want one that programmed for the next day since i rarely used that feature on my last coffee maker.

This coffee maker is ideal for everyone, especially if you have a busy life style and need to have a convenient way for enjoying great coffee. Thanks to its easy-to-operate functions, you can conveniently have your coffee ready for you while you are getting ready for work or while doing chores around the house. Also, if you have limited counter space and require a kitchen device that will not take up too much room, then this is the coffee maker for you since it is narrow and fits easily in tight spaces. You can rest assured that you are investing your money in a great kitchen product because of its strong aluminum die-cast exterior assures you that it will be around making great coffee for years to come. Pros:it has both a sturdy build and an impressive design – this excellent coffee maker has had such high reviews with how strong it proves to be because of its durable die-cast aluminum exterior. Furthermore, it is built from reliable a delonghi coffee maker part which guarantees that this device will last for a much longer time than other coffee makers. It has a small footprint – putting this coffee makeron display is no problem at all, even for those with small kitchen counters because it has a small foot print. If preferred to be kept up when not in use, it can also be conveniently placed inside a cabinet since it does not demand too much storage space. Its operation to produce great coffee is very easy to control – it is easy to make this great coffee maker function. It has a simple on/off switch and does not require any programming procedure.

I’ve had this maker for about a month and couldn’t be happier. It is pretty and makes great coffee, and is just the right size for my wife and me. Mine must be a newer model, as it does not have the ‘de-scaling’ indicator that some have complained about, and i have no problem emptying the carafe. The lack of a 2-hour shutoff is not an issue for me, as we only use it to brew morning coffee with. The price has gone up a good bit in the past month, however; i think i paid $111 for mine, and now it is going for $130. I’d buy it again though, in a heartbeat.

Product is beautiful, and i am really happy with it. The proportions of grounds vs. Water is still taking some figuring out though. It does not seem to be the same as other coffee makers, but i am wondering if maybe my coffee is ground too finely (i’ve been using the reusable filter provided). Other than that, i would definitely recommend for someone who wants a simple, well-designed coffee maker. The cup warmer is sort of pointless, but i like the aesthetic of the extra hardware for it.

This review is of the 5-cup version in orange which i love. I have had no dripping problem with the carafe as mentioned about the 10 cup version by others. It is sleek and beautiful and so easy to use. It looks adorable on my new kitchen cart and makes great coffee too. It is super fast, so the cup warmer will not heat the cup fully unless you want to let it sit a while. So i fill my cup with very hot tap water and set it on there. I posted about it on my blog (just click my profile to see link if you’re interested) with more photos if anyone is interested. The only neg is after i have cleaned the carafe and put it back, even with the power off, more coffee drips out. Just a few drops but a little annoying.

Bought this for my retired parents as a gift. It looks great in their kitchen. Only complaint is some coffee leaks down at the heater plate element so they put a paper towel under the carafe when brewing. This is after 3 years of daily use.

I’ve been using my coffee maker for about 2 weeks now, having used a keurig for years (i just decided to quit filling the landfill with little k cups). It does brew a delicious cup of coffee, even under the worst of conditions. This morning in my fog, i put the #2 paper filter in the top & filled it as usual, poured water in the tank & pressed the button. When i came back to pour my first cup, the filter fell out on the warming plate. I had failed to put the filter holder in place. Coffee still came out perfect (with a few grounds in the bottom of the pot).

I love the look of this coffee maker. We ordered it in stainless steel and it matches the other stainless steel appliances. It makes a pot of coffee very quickly. A cup is only 6 ounces, so a pot is about 30 ounces of coffee, which is perfect for 1 or 2 people. It has one button to operate and is very simple. You use the pot to measure your water for how many cups you want and pour it in the back of the unit. It has a permanent filter and you add one scoop of coffee for each cup you want and then turn it on. . Coffee is ready in 2 minutes, tastes amazing and is it the perfect temp. I will buy it again when mine breaks.

After only three years (but probably a lot of use), my delonghi that i loved so refused to make another cup of coffee. I was skeptical of going with another of the same brand, but was disappointed by so many of the other products i found out there. I wanted something at least as stylish as my last machine and didn’t need too many features. I struggled with the price of this machine and considered it for several days before deciding to make the purchase. At almost double what i spent for my last machine (and i thought that was expensive), it was certainly a stretch reasoning with myself why i should go ahead and buy the kmix. The package came a day earlier than expected, so i was already excited. Looks great, even better than my last machine. I read reviews that said the machine did not turn off automatically as advertised but mine does. The cup warmer was not a need on my list when searching for the product, so it not doing a great job in a timely manner does not affect my rating or satisfaction with the product. I do wish that i could remove the pot while brewing to pour a cup of coffee when i just can’t wait, but it doesn’t take long to brew in the first place.

Had this coffee machine for over a year using it almost every day. Very simple machine with no extra features. It is big and you need space overhead to open it. The only problem i had was that the glass carafe /container cracked (my mistake) and finding a replacement was almost impossible. I found a replacement from another company that doesn’t fit 100%. I have to maneuver and place the lid a specific way to open the drip canal. But i recommend that if you crack the carafe, don’t throw away the gray/black top. Just find a carafe of similar height and hopefully it may fit on. I specifically bought this machine for the color to match my modern yellow/green kitchen.

I have to admit, its looks are what drew me in, but it makes a decent cup of coffee in lighting speed no less. I love the yellow, it makes me happy even when i’m not using it. The quality is superb, looks very expensive and is not at all. I really like how my coffee is ready to go in literally 120 seconds. The cup warmer isn’t that hot, so i generally just heat my mug in the microwave, but it’s no biggie. Even if it breaks in a year, for the price, it’ll be cheaper than my daily chain coffee shop habit.

This coffee maker makes 2 big mugs of great coffee. I only needed a couple of cups for each morning and this works perfectly. Have to be careful to make sure the carafe is seated in the correct position or it will stop the flow and will overflow. Only takes once to learn this.

DeLonghi Bread Maker : Happy with this bread maker

I did a lot of research on the other machines and this machine was never compared to the others on any of the websites. I liked the other machines, but each machine was missing at least one of the features i was looking for, the delonghi has them all. I was looking for a timer, fruit and nut dispenser, convection and a paddle that did not leave a large hole. The paddle is thin, so when you pull the bread out of the pan, it leaves a slight thin line, almost unnoticeable. Also the light is great, and the window on the top is bigger than what i had before, so you can actually see what is going on. I baked a nut and currant bread, white bread and dough for sub rolls so far. Right now i am making pumpernickel dough for rolls. I have not been disappointed in anything i have made so far. Don’t be discouraged by the recipe book inside.

It is easy to use, easy to clean, it is not noisy and works very well. Just what i was looking for.

The unit did not power up when plugged in and switched on. Had to jiggle and shake it for a while to get it to power up. Made two good loaves of bread, but struggled with the power each time. Am returning for a new unit and will try again. Very good looking and easy to operate. Update: amazon shipped a replacement unit and we love it.

I am somwhat disappointed with this machine, but am finding it useful and still learning. I made two loaves from the same recipe, using identical settings and had 2 different kinds of loafs. The crust was darker on the second one, and the puffiness of the loaf was not as even. Both loaves were acceptable but the first one of the identical loaves was much better. I also found that using recipes by king arthur flour worked out better than the ones that came with the machine. Part of my disappointment is that i thought i was getting a maker with retractable blades. I ordered this by mistake, but i find it acceptable because the blade makes such a small defect in the crust of the loaf. It separates easily unless i overload the loaf with dried fruit or raisins.

  • So happy I trusted the reviews! This bread machine is top notch! Just one minor complaint
  • Pretty good, minor issues
  • Makes great bread

I purchased this bread machine a few months ago with the primary intention of replacing store-bought sandwich bread with homemade. I am a busy mom, however, and as much as i would like to be available for traditional bread making, it just doesn’t happen. This machine is consistently making a delicious 100% sprouted whole wheat loaf for me. Yes, the ingredients may cost more than buying a loaf from the store, but i like the peace of mind that comes from zero preservatives and dough conditioners, and 100% organic ingredients. I don’t have to babysit it, as some other reviews have suggested. I put the ingredients in and take the loaf out a few hours later. Easy peasy, as my five year old says. No, it isn’t whisper quiet, but it only kneads intermittently for about 30 minutes of its 3-4 hour cycle. 5 lb loaf is almost exactly the same size as a traditional loaf of sandwich bread, just not as long, which is fine because we eat it all before it gets dry. I do wish that delonghi had provided more recipes, but i have been using many from the king arthur flour website with lots of success. Overall, i am super happy with this purchase. It consistently bakes delicious bread with very little hands on attention and doubles as a really awesome air freshener.

This is a great bread macker. Recomending this bread maker nice design too. . Tuch screan display,,a very great price for the product. Iff any one is looking for a good bread maker this is the one i recomend delongi bread maker.

Very good value for the money. Flat paddle does not leave a ‘hole’ in the bread.

I really like this bread machine, but it took me quite a few months to figure it out. It comes with a book of recipes, but you have to follow the recipes to perfection. My biggest complaint is the measurements are in ounces. While it comes with a measuring device, this only works for the liquid ingredients. I had to purchase a scale to measure out the dry ingredients. Beyond that, the machine is easy to use and produces wonderful breads.

For some odd reason i cant get this thing to make bread without it coming out flat. I follow the instructions and even tried different things and all ended up the same. So for now i use it for making jam. Its perfect for making strawberry jam. I like the unit overall and hopefully get the bread to work. Until then, i use the oven like usual.

I have been using for several months and love it.

Great product, not too big, not too small, fit well in the kitchen. After one week of testing, we finally optimize the right recipe with the right program. The breads are really amazing, and the crust is just perfect. We are now using it very other day since now almost 6 months, and we are very happy with it.

I don’t usually write reviews, but i just had too much to say about this. This bread machine replaced my breadman ultimate plus, which broke after less than a year of use, but i rigged it up to keep working for another year (just had to use a knife to pry the pan out after each use). I did heavy research before choosing my replacement. I decided i didn’t want another “budget” bread machine that i was going to have to keep replacing, so i was looking at some of the higher end machines. Besides the delonghi, i considered machines by zojirushi, panasonic, and breville. There seems to be a lot of passionate zoji fans. It does seem like a nice machine, but i didn’t like a few things about it. 1) it doesn’t have a dedicated “french” bread cycle, which i make a lot of. I know, i know, you can program it, but since it’s something i make a lot, i wanted a machine that already had the perfect cycle set up for it. My household is small, so i like to make 1 lb. Loaves with the option of going bigger if i am feeding a crowd. 3) it didn’t have the fruit/nut dispenser4) it is more expensive5) it didn’t have an interior lightthe panasonic machine i was looking at (sd-yd250) didn’t have the fruit/nut dispenser or an interior light. It did have a yeast dispenser, which i thought was silly because it’s easy (and fun) to make a little “well” in the flour to put the yeast, and it just seemed like another little area to have to clean.

I have owned this bread maker for several months and haven’t used it much because it seemed confusing. The display window is touch screen with “icons” that are pictures only. Today, i went to the delonghi website and found a very useful manual. I printed off the illustration and labeled the parts and now i totally understand how to make a loaf of bread. Press menu, which is the book symbol. You know which number to choose based on the recipe you use in the book. Select loaf size, which is the scale symbol , 3. Select crust color, which is the bread symbol. The dispenser for nuts and dried fruit slides on the lid. If you need to cancel your choices, press the x symbol.

Works well for mixing dough, though i don’t bake the bread in it.

I love this bread maker it makes great bread. There are two things i don’t care for. The basket that holds nuts or other ingredients for delayed release in special breads often opens and gets dirty when you make plain bread. Second the bread will cook longer than you want it to so you must take it out of the machine when it’s done or it will continue to cook and develop a hard thick crust even on the lighter settings. This is only a problem if you want to set it to make bread while your away and cannot be there to pull it out when it’s done. The recipe book is easy to follow and every bread i’ve tried has tasted wonderful. I wish there was a store near me that carried the specialized ingredients that many of the recipes call for. All in all it is a great bread maker and has always performed well for me.

Works perfectly and makes delicious bread. Not too much noise (bip and motor) compare to other bread makers. Really makes a crispy crust with medium and dark crust setting.

Very easy to set up, solid, not too loud and easy to clean. I wish they would have programmed in a beep at the begining of the last rise, as i like to remove the paddle then. Also, i’d like to be able to disable the ‘keep warm’ function. Update: it is possible to remove the keep warm function by programming a custom cycle.

This machine has all the features i wanted to replace my 12-year-old bread maker. Unfortunately, i had a very hard time making a satisfactory loaf with their recipes. Everything is weighed on a scale or measured in their enclosed measuring cup. I carefully weighed and measured resulting in awful loaves. Since i’m an every week bread baker, i knew they could be better. When i called the company, they offered to have me send the machine back and have it checked for defect. I decided to try it for another month before lugging it to ups. I switched to my own recipes and ‘voila’ perfect loafs. Haven’t tried it with mixes, but i have used several bread machine cookbooks all with great results.

I bought the same model from sur la table and it cost me $50 more after tax. I knowingly was lazy when making my first loaf and used the included measuring cup to measure the flour (yes, i do know it’s for liquids only – why’d i do it?. Because i’m a guy i suppose). The resulting bread was flat, dense, and not very good. Fast forward to the 2nd loaf. This time i measured the same amount of flour in the same included measuring cup. I wanted to weight it out and see just how far off i was on my flour amount. With the liquid measuring cup came out on my digital oxo weight scale as only 14 & 1/4 oz. I knew it would be off, but wow – didn’t expect it to be 7 ounces off.

Actually, it has been a bit more than a year. I have used my bread machine once or twice a week, every single week, since i purchased it. I put added fiber into all of my breads. And just because i am home and can do it, i take the dough out after the last punch down, remove the kneader bar, shape the loaf, and then put it back in to rise and bake. I pretty much get perfect bread every time. Further updates: i have written additional updates, but they have not appeared here. Maybe my review has turned into too much of a blog. Anyway, for initial impressions of the bread machine, skip the updates and start reading further down.

This breadmaker makes a very even loaf. The fruit and nut dispenser is great too, things are very easy to clean and there aren’t any dry corners like other machines. This machine is a little bigger than i expected it to be, so take that into consideration if you won’t have a large spot to store it. The instructions and recipe booklet are easy to follow and the package includes a measuring cup and spoon.

DeLonghi EO1251 6-Slice 1/2-Cubic-Foot Convection Oven : Great ’til it died suddenly after 2 years

Would have given this 5 stars except for one thing–there is no light in the oven. My old delonghi lit up as soon as you turned it on. Would have searched for another oven if i had realized that. Also the toaster takes forever but does toast well. And i like the convection oven which i had never used before. It does not shorten the bake time by much, however. Some baked foods come out much better w/convection. All in all a very good oven & delonghi is the best.

I’ve been trying to get my family to stop using the microwave. I got this and it’s amazeballs. Want to heat something just a little?.

DeLonghi EO1251 6-Slice 1/2-Cubic-Foot Convection Oven, Black and Stainless Steel

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Non-stick interior makes cleanups quick and effortless
  • Large interior that is large enough to cook an entire 12-inch pizza, bake an entree or side dish
  • Safe handling with cool touch sides.
  • Circulates air for fast and consistent results while cooking 40% faster
  • Includes one cookie sheet, aluminum bake pan and aluminum broil tray

The toaster oven itself is great, but the shipper took no care in packing the product. It came with a few broken plastic pieces, which is unfortunate.

This is the second delonghi toaster oven i have owned. I can’t remember when i bought the first one but it’s been a very long time. The one i have is an old self cleaning model. Most of the time the problem is that some people don’t know how to use the appliance. I just turn the dial to the left (not the right) for toast. I turn it to the right when i want to bake or broil. The handle on the door doesn’t get hot like some other toasters. Don’t allow others to use it unless they know how to use it.

DeLonghi EO1251 6-Slice 1/2-Cubic-Foot Convection Oven, Black and Stainless Steel : I have never used to so i don’t actually know how it is but my mom uses it all the time and loves it.

This would have been my third delonghi toaster oven. Love the features, the two trays(hard to find in many other brands nowadays), deep enough for a pizza tray. But it arrived with a broken door. The packaging was poor with no support for the glass door, thus one side of it had dislodged from its fittings and there was no way to correct this, so we returned it. Wasn’t sure if this issue would be resolved so we decided not to order it again.

Previously, we had one of the much more expensive delonghi convection ovens. It not only did basic toasting, but ended up serving as another smaller oven for our cooking chores. This delonghi can do more than toast, and does toasting very well. We are very pleased for the price (appox $45 on sale), but miss having another oven to supplement the cooking on big projects.

I wish it was all black like my previous one.

Spacious, deep interior fits large items or multiple pieces of bread easily. Heats quickly and consistently. In fact, heats so fast, we use on lower settings. Also attractive and easy to clean.

Fyi: the height is 9 inches and the width is 17, but it’s *not* eleven inches deep — more like 14.

I did a lot of research into the best toaster oven. * if you want to use this as a small oven as well (saves on some electricity since you are not heating an entire oven) the best one out there is the breville oven which i found at william sonoma. At about $300 it is a pricey investment, but if you can afford it, it’s worth it. * all the reviews i have read, said that the toaster oven really doesn’t do good toast. Also, that not much has changed in the design of these appliances except that the price and size has gone up tremendously. *after looking at the selection in a local store, i would have to agree. The lower-end ovens felt like cheap imitations of the toaster oven i knew and loved as a kid. Some of them are bigger now – hence the ‘oven’ function – but the price has gone up as well. * i bought the breville, took it home and tried it out.

Worked well until the power supply failed suddenly. Although under warranty, the cost and time involved in getting it repaired, doesn’t make a trip worthwhile for a $55 item.

Ours arrived broken in shipment. Amazon took care of it promptly. We bought another exact model and it works great. My wife only likes this brand.

I’m not sure the life span of your average toaster oven, but this one hung in there for 5. It reheated pizza well and cooked things like frozen french fries & chicken tenders a bit quicker than the regular oven. I wish it had lasted a bit longer, but while it lived, it did its job well.

We had another delonghi toaster oven that we bought 7 years ago it worked great so we were happy when we found this onethank you.

I am not crazy about combination of silver and black. I used to have one before, it burned, but it was black color all around.

The eo1251 is particularly useful for 1-2 person households, as it is a terrific little oven and an adequate toaster. I can’t give it 5 stars until the designers improve the setting knobs, which are stiff and provide too small a finger grip for turning, and add a second rack to provide more placement options. To get the most reliable toast results, one needs first to warmed up the toaster settings. While the cuisinart convection oven gets the higher ratings, some users i know have complained of the need to vet the equipment thoroughly, as it gives off an unpleasant chemical smell on initial usages. Fortunately, the delonghi has no such drawback. I also appreciate the simplicity of its settings; it’s easier just to turn a knob in the morning than have to face the cuisinart’s digital pad.

Good product – would buy again.

The previous model was better, with nicer knobs and an overall silver finish that was more together. Also, it had a light inside and the grill slid out automatically when you opened the door (not such a great idea actually). But they don’t make that one anymore. If you want the best toaster oven that money can buy these days, this is probably it. And it’s still much cheaper than it should be. I wish that delonghi would make one with better heating elements, an overall black finish, the nice knobs, and just charge $200 for it, like it should be.

We’ve had a delonghi toaster for 12 years and it was just about done. So we decided to get another one. But maybe the company was bought by someone new in the past 12 years. The quality is cheaper and just doesn’t work as well.

Just what i needed and just what i ordered.
