Very good price for a delonghi with the milk carafe for auto milk. I've found delonghi to be pretty solid with good warranty /service support.

Amazing price, I have this coffee machine and it's brilliant. Worth every penny.

Claimable....strange word.

Good price mind, heat!

is this a good price the reviews looks good

Is this good for lattes?

Cracking deal, I’ve “bean” waiting for this one with the automatic milk carafe to come down to a decent price. Normally retailing at £529 if not more, this certainly represents a greater saving than the version without the milk frother.
I understand that not everyone wants the milk frother and would rather do it manually in order to get the milk as hot as possible. But if you do this is a bargain.
It’s an older line which is presumably being cleared through, hence the substantial saving.(nerd)

I and many replying here think it's a great price. I've got one making it's way to me as we speak, can't wait!

I have owned this machine for about 6 months. Its great for the money, my previous machine had a manual frother, the auto frother is great. I drink 6 or so coffees from it a day. It has an auto rinse feature you do use after making a coffee and then I give it a good clean once a week. Descaling it is a breeze compared to my previous Gaggia - it has a descaler program which means you just add water and descaler and let the machine do most of the work.
The free gift is 3 regular bags of Union coffee, some extra cleaning liquids (you get some in the box) and 6 expresso glasses. Nowhere near worth £100 but still better than nothing, be aware it can take a fair few weeks to arrive.
I paid around £330 from currrys when it was on offer but I believe it has dropped to £299 in the past.
I never take usually take out the 5 year 'insurance' but given I drink a lot of coffee I did with this machine. The store price for this was £60 but when I pointed out 'how cheap' it is to buy another machine they halved it to £30 which I accepted.
HTH

These are great. We've had an older version for around 2 years now that we got refurbished from ebay (~£180). Never had a mechanical issue with it. It bitches about descaling and filter changed fairly often, but we only do them once every few months, and have never had a problem.

We only recently got a dishwasher, so cleaning the milk frother was a bit of a pain, but I'd recommend cravendale for this, as it'll last much longer. The drip tray can also get SUPER GROSS if you leave it for more than a few weeks unwashed, so be a bit wary. We went on holiday for a couple of weeks, and the stink was unbearable. Our fault, of course, but can easily happen.

Coffee comes out a bit cold when using latte function due to it not warming the milk that much. I think on the newer models, you can program multiple drinks, but on ours it's just a set milk, coffee, and water amount.

Overall, I'd recommend them if you like decent coffee and don't want to have to wait around steaming your milk or grinding beans.

I must admit I am tempted. My wife wouldn't be happy though. "You've already got a coffee machine!"

Not sure, I would let you know when mine arrives but I'm not a fan of caramel. Maybe Goolge this Q?

Having owned a "Manual" Frother and one with a "Carafe" I prefer the manual machines,
the Carafe system actually takes more time as you need to clean out the carafe and the machine.
Also if you put too much milk in the Carafe and put it back in the fridge it will sour quickly.

I find the milk is a bit cooler with the Carafe system as well.

I have the manual. Looking to switch to this machine. Should I? Shouldn't I?

Just purchased one of these from Currys, and had it now a couple of days. Very pleased with it. I debated which machine to go for as there are soo many Delonghi machines. I had a Gaggia Classic with solenoid valve and have been very pleased with it, but I wanted to upgrade to a bean to cup. The Delonghi instructions are not the easiest to follow. I'm now on about the 7th coffee so just getting to grips with the settings. Hot Coffee Tip which I have always used even with my Gaggia Classic was to fill your coffee cup with the hot water first and let it warm the cup. This is achieved via the hot water tap on the Delonghi. Then turn the setting to the hottest. Make sure you have filled up with water and everything to hand otherwise the coffee making process is slowed down. The cappuccino for me on the extra large cup setting does not fill my coffee cup, and so I just retain some of the hot water from the initial cup which was warmed. It casing is silver and black, which looks in my opinion looks more classy than some of the other models with white casing. I can recommend.

If you mean manual frother, if you can use that then don't bother switching.
The results wont be as good!

It takes skill and precision to get the milk right every single time. .. but yes the results are good once you learn how!

I genuinely knocked my b2c off the breakfast bar and broke the steam valve. Ordered a new one... if the repair works I'll stick to it.if not I can finally justify a new machine!

My worst attempts are long gone. Took me a while to learn but I make a mean latte now!

Can you remove the automatic one and put a manual wand on if you need it?

No, you can just put a nozzle for hot water on it.

I didn't think this model had a cup warmer?

I am incredibly pleased with this machine!!

It has casually surpassed my expectations! Such a beautiful flavour, as of yet I’ve only used “free” beans that my wife got with a M&S meal deal (also found on this site!) and the taste is amazing.

I’m enjoying an extra long “normal” coffee in the car of a morning, but the real joy for me comes from an extra strong espresso, genuinely one of the tastiest coffees I’ve ever had and I’m lucky enough to have some excellent independent brewers near my work in central Bristol!

Our previous machine was a Kitchenaid Nespresso, the convenience of which cannot be doubted, however the taste from this is truly amazing!

We’ve stuck our Nespresso on eBay if you’re looking for a well looked after machine in the Somerset area!
