Don't DREAM of buying this regardless of price unless you like living dangerously:

1. It uses steam pressure to make espresso, NOT a pump, so you will get very POOR quality espresso. 15bar pumped machines are what you need for reasonable coffee that has the proper "crema" and is far less bitter. (There have been many on here at good prices over the years)

2. Steam pressure espresso machines are absolutely DEADLY. I spent time in A&E with one, and would not wish the pain on anyone. It is all too easy to think the machine is empty and cool enough to open & refill, but I was fooled, and I DO know better! :whistling:

3. The glass "espresso" jug is just too easy to bust, and expensive or impossible to replace. Pump machines don't use them

4. If you get a proper pumped machine, and take a little time to learn how to use it well, you won't want the Filter coffee function at all, as it is VASTLY inferior. A jug and strainer produces better coffee, than filters anyway, but filter machines can be got cheaply on their own, if for some reason you actually want one.

5. Morphy Richards stuff is crap, whatever item!

I have had one of these for about 5 years which I bought from Argos for a lot more money. Never had any problems with it and would recommend it.:thumbsup:

I could have sworn that that was how they used to be made. Heat the water up in a confined space and the pressure and temperature rise and forces this very hot water/steam through the coffee to get the flavour. Then you use the pressurised steam to froth the milk. At the end you keep the steam valve open to release the pressure befroe opening it up. Pretty simple.
Having worked in casualty for a couple of yers and never seeing an injury from one of these I prsume that people who get them and can use them realise that they are high temperature, high pressure machines that you don't open until the pressure is release or the temperature has dropped. Even then I would release the pressure and not work on the logic that it looks cold enough to open. I don't know abou the rest of you, but i cannot look inside a sealed container and work out the pressure or temperature of the contents. I just open the valve in to a cup of cold water and use this to clean the pressure tube at the same time. If you haven't got the common sense not to put you hand into a jet of steam or open a pressurised superheated vessel, then I suggest that you get the pump method. But for the adrenaline junkies who like proper coffee go get a real one.

There is no way of knowing how full it is, if it blocks (and the milk frothing vent can do, EASILY) it may appears to be empty, after the main coffee cycle it will be about 95% empty anyway, but even after leaving for some time, it is under pressure. Fascinating to watch, but rather painful... I had an uninjured watch imprint for some months!

Compare it with a car radiator.... that's the nearest comparison I can make (but hotter and under a bit more pressure) now you MUST have seen injuries from them... as I have seen others open them, thinking they are cool enough or are nearly empty......similar end result.

Besides, the coffee this type produces is CRAP!
