Looks a good deal to me. Our delonghi had an RRP of around £1000 and we paid £600. Wife's favourite toy!!

I've got this machine, but don't use the milk frother - it has never managed to do a creamy froth. However, the coffee is very good and it is so easy to maintain. We've almost had 3000 coffees now and it is still working fine. We paid £500 from Costco, so this is a very good price!

Dupe...was posted only a few days ago at this price.

Trip down memory lane! I think £375 is nearing my biting point, voted hot.

Yes it is. I picked mine up in store. I think you can get 3% Quidco as well but not 100% sure

Yeah same here, the frother isn't *always* successful but it's 95% of the time...

So tempted. Must resist!

Just bought one with a friends o2 priority moments voucher for an extra £25 off as per other people above. going to set it up later and will post feedback for those who might be interested

Just checked and there is one at my local currys for uplift within the hour. It would be good to hear your view on it.

What's the difference between this one and the 5400 version at £299?

I've had a look on the De' Longhi website and it's not very clear what the difference is.

its not that clear at all. i think the main difference is the milk carafe. there may also be a slight difference in the self clean functions but i think thats it.

I'm not sure the milk carafe hugely justifies the difference in price in all honesty. i have a fair number of milky (latte/cappuccino) coffees and went for the 5500 in the hope that its a bit less faff. ie dont have to manually froth milk separately from the spout. Some prefer to do it manually to have more control, it may be hotter milk that way too and of course its £75 cheaper!

Haven't used it yet and probably wont do in the next hour! The currys guy was quite knowledgeable about them when i went so you could have a chat but essentially the difference is the milk jug

the other interesting thing is that both machines have a very plasticky finish. much lower end than i would expect even at this price but these are very cheap compared to the stainless steel machines and im being picky. It doesn't bother me much but thought I'd mention as it was different to what I'd expected. The look is better than the feel!

after numerous tests im buzzing my head off on all the caffeine.

awesome machine and very pleased i bought it. very simple and easy to use despite having numerous options to get the perfect coffee.
makes a great coffee and very quickly. espresso/latte etc all great. really easy to set up and use. Key point for me being no faffing. push the button and coffee done in couple of mins. set the timer and wake to a machine ready to use with warm mugs on the cup heater.
definitely need to whack the temperature up to maximum and set the strength high in order to suit my tastes.

overall im really pleased. definitely worth it for anyone who is a fan of this sort of coffee. Not worth it for those who arent but that goes without saying!

I'm also thinking of buying the 5400 version, as I think I'd rather save £75 instead of the milk jug as I only occasionally would make cappuccino I think. I found this site that tells you the difference:

Still undecided, I'm still on the side of 5400 I think, probably should make up my mind soon.

just to note that on the link it has this section


'''''''Point Number Two: Brewing options

When using the DeLonghi ESAM E5500, you have a bit more control in terms of the size and strength of your brews. For the ESAM 5500 you have short, medium and long for size options, Strong or Extra Mild for Aroma, and Hot or Medium as temperature options.

The DeLonghi ESAM E5400 offers Short Espresso or Very Long coffee for size options, and Strong and Extra Mild for aroma.''''



I think this must be a comparison with the ESAM5500 not the ESAM 5500b which i think is updated to offer even more options. It has extra long drinks, more aroma varieties and an extra temperature setting above high called maximum.
I think from another post i read that they have done this in response to customer feedback and thats why the model is labelled 5500b not the 5500
The 5500/b also has the options of manually customizing the setting for drink size to the size of your cup (upto 180mls). im not sure if the 5400 does this

so thats a few little differences for the difference in cost for people to mull over

I might be wrong but I think the B just signifies the model is Black... There are .S models for Silver, and .SB for Silver/Black (see here http://www.delonghi.com/en-GB/products/coffee/coffee-makers/automatic-coffee-makers/)

I take your point about the brewing options/drink sizes, that was one of the options I thought might be useful tbh. I've a friend with a ECAM 22.110 which does that too, and makes great coffee.

Thanks, that's helpful.

The 5500 looks good to me as I like the automated jug (so to speak). Still a lot of spondoolies. My finger is hoovering over that 'Reserve Now' button.

Aha. That makes sense. I got that from a part in the previous thread which was expired.
Those additional settings are on my machine but i guess there could be upgrades on the 5400.
Enjoy whichever you get!

There may be a way to get this for less (approx £330) or the 5400 which I've now decided on, for £261 by doing the below. Not sure if it'll work, but worth a try if you can do and happy with the risk of it going out of stock while you receive your gift card. I'll report whether it's fine to use the gift card and discount voucher at same time, no reason why it shouldn't be ok.

Price of 5400 model £299.99
Less £25 o2 priority moments voucher
Balance £274.99. So buy £275 giftcard from Topcashback giftcards which gives 5% cashback at the moment.
Total = £261.25 (I'm also going to try to reserve through TCB to see if I get the extra 1.57% too)

Hot, £100 cheaper than 4 years ago and can collect in store.
