Amazing price for this machine . The original price is probably inflated but £29.99 is a bargain for a pod coffee machine , the pods are apparently cheaper and more widely available than those for similar machines .

Was just about to post this. Can't argue with this price!

Tempted, but apparently it doesn't do latte or cappuccino?

So, you still don't get the cups with it at the supposed original price of £100.00? So what's the difference between this model and the one that I got from Tesco on another deal on here a few months ago for £17.00? They look identical apart from this one has a steel/metal looking spout.

Steel/metal looking spout

rubbish deal

I've been stocking up on pods (sometimes called pads) whenever they appear in the 99 pence shop, but Lidl do an own brand version as well. You can also get a reusable insert you can fill with your own choice of ground coffee.

yes you can get the pads from Tesco or asda but I had this machine in it destroyed itself in just over a week. forsone reason it started to burn the water and it came out smelling nasty and a nasty color. the tasimo machines are way way better and you can get them

This is an 'improved' model over the cheaper/cheapest Senseo HD7814 model in two ways:
a. larger water reservoir = reduced hassle of refilling
b. automated descale indicator and descaling 'programme' - ie reminds you to descale, and works its way through descaling, pausing at appropriate times.

Had TWO of these HD7825 from Amazon, originally to replace a HD7814 that gave to folks, and then after about ten months first of these failed with buttons no longer working, but Amazon replaced within 36 hours = fab service; and replacement has been going fine for last 18 months or so. (Get Philips 2yr warranty anyway.)

If needed to buy again would choose 7825 over 7814 any day cuz of the two enhancements.

It's best NOT doing them as all the latte/cappuccino pods I've seen/tried (even at 99p instead of usual £2/£3+) are rubbish - with way too much sugar and or milk powdery substances and low coffee.
It's primarily a "pad" system with essentially a round coffee bag rather than tea bag - and for that it's inexpensive to feed compared to the other plastic/foil capsule/pad systems though that lack of profit margin & more restricted UK range means the pads can be harder to find in UK retailers (by comparison with the Netherlands - you can find a couple of NL businesses shipping pads over from there, though only makes sense for large orders due to P&P). In UK compatible pads : Lidl do 3 or 4 varieties with 18 x small cup (9x mug) for £1.69.
Just search through the past Senseo threads on here for various ideas : eg there's a few adapter gizmos that allow you to use ground coffee (ie like going from tea bags to loose tea) though personally I find the hassle of filling/empyting/cleaning the adapter defeats a lot of the convenience of the pad system - but each to their own tastes/priorities and it DOES allow for a wider choice of coffees & VFM.
