I agree, I have this machine. Take the milk parts off immediately rinse through until clear with hot water tap. I’ve not had any clogging problems and makes epic flat white or cappuccinos
Have this machine along with a range of other capsule based and espresso machines and I rate it pretty highly. You need to get decent quality capsules. You can make big drinks but you'd have to run the milk device a couple of times and refill. Cleaning parts is literally seconds once you have the disassemble and assemble routine down. you can put it all in the dishwasher, the milk parts I mean if you prefer, or every day or two. I default to a flat white, so first capsulke in and run. Extracts for around 23 sconds and cuts off. Add the milk container and a second capsule and press. This runs the milk foamer and a second extraction. A 5oz cup and job done. Really pretty good. To avoid milk deposits you wash through the milk foamer each time. If you're lazy you'll get problems no doubt. It's less mission using this this machine than a pro espresso machine and milk wand. Just discipline needed. I paid £80 for mine delivered as an ex demo machine. so worth a shop around.
Doesn’t have the best reviews on Which
I agree though about the self cleaning, I use to rep for them and it was ALWAYS clogging because of milk deposits. Don’t even get me started on the amount of milk you get. For better temp control and a true barista taste buy separate nespresso and aerrocino. Better to buy a smaller nespresso
Wouldn't suggest this machine. Brought it just recently for the modern look but it's just not worth the hassle. The milk frother doesn't have a self clean function, And you have to clean about 5 parts after every use, Even then I just don't feel it's hygienic due to the amount of nooks and crannies that milk can hide in. Resorted to using my old Aerroccino for frothed Milk.
