Had this machine and it is rubbish for any HOT milky drinks. The milk was always like warm rather than hot!

I got this machine from AO at the weekend. Really enjoying it so far and still trying to fine tune everything to get my drinks the way I like them, but this can take a while as there are a lot of settings on the machine. I went from a manual espresso and grinder combo to this as I grew tired of all of the faffing around and now I can hit 1 button for a hot drink in the morning. I program the timer for it to come on automatically in the mornings so it's already warmed up and ready to use straight away.

The coffee is plenty hot enough and I actually had to turn the temperature right down. The frothed milk comes out at 60 degrees which is the perfect temperature for optimum sweetness. The quality of the foam is good too.

Would definitely recommend and this price is slightly better than I got with AO with a discount code.

I would look at reviews, such as on John Lewis, regarding the milk temp especially using it over time....
I ended up with a Krups EA9001
Yes double the cost, but far superior machine, Especially with maintenance and ease of frothing milk!

John Lewis don't sell the ECAM 44.660B... I looked at as many reviews on this model as I could find as I know how to make a decent coffee, (grind, tamp, temperature, extraction time etc, etc) so wanted to be sure this was up to the job, but couldn't see that many suffering from problems such as milk not getting hot enough. Perhaps those people aren't pre-warming their cups? Or perhaps they just like the milk way hotter than 60 degrees?
The machine is covered by a 2 year warranty so if any faults do develop, delonghi will repair/replace.

​looks like they stopped stocking it... either discontinued or maybe due to how many poor reviews.
I bought the exact same model from JL and clearly remember how many negative reviews, which I added to as well.

You say pre-warming the cups but does that not defy the whole point of a fully automated system?
You are probably looking for a Sage if you want to manage the whole process....

great price for this. can vouch for the quality although beware heavy users I.e businesses like ours you end up descaling every few weeks which takes a long time and pretty inconvenient.

Perhaps they did, we don't know for sure, as that would just be an assumption. John Lewis do stock other Delonghi models which use the same internals though (Autentica Cappuccino, Eletta Cappuccion Cup), so I wouldn't be inclined to believe that.

Reviews elsewhere seem to fair well:

Amazon 4.9/5
Trustedreviews 8/10
productreview.com.au 4.2/5

You should ALWAYS pre-warm your cups regardless of the machine you use. Pouring espresso or any milk based coffee drinks in to a cold cup is a definite no-no.
These super-automatics do have a cup warmer on top though (as do most machines) so if you program the machine to come on early, as I do, your cups will already be warm when you go to make your drink.

I went from a manual machine and grinder combo (which will make a better drink than any bean to cup machine) but for the sake of time in the mornings I decided to go for a super automatic.

I'm happy so far with this machine and sorry that you and some other have experienced temperatures not to your liking. You must have had a faulty machine since mine does not suffer from this. There's a lot going on inside these things so they do and go wrong, especially if you not care for them properly. As I mentioned previously though, it does come with a 2 year warranty.

House of Fraser have now price matched this now.
