It’s easy to offer guests or family members a choice of drip coffee or an espresso drink with this combination coffee/espresso maker. The Caffé Nero has separate controls and water tanks for each function, so you can brew drip coffee and espresso simultaneously. The coffee side has a patented Flavor Savor brewing system that fully saturates grounds and lets them steep for a while to draw out rich coffee flavors. A permanent gold-tone filter keeps even the finest grounds from sneaking through to a coffee cup and eliminates the need for buying paper filters. Using the dial on the top of the coffeemaker, you can adjust the coffee’s strength to personal preference. A separate button lets you choose between brewing 5 cups or less or from 6 to 10 cups and alters the heating element accordingly so smaller pots never taste burnt or overheated. The drip coffee side also has a 24-hour programmable timer that can be set each night to brew first thing in the morning and a "drip interrupt" feature, so you can pour a cup before the full pot is brewed. Coffee remains hot in the 10-cup glass carafe due to the Caffé Nero’s nonstick warming plate.

The espresso function starts up quickly without much advanced preparation and has two filter holders--one that uses ground espresso and another that uses coffee pods. The pod filter holder has a unique design that securely holds pods in place and makes disposal easy with a single touch of a button. The patented ground espresso filter improves upon the brewing process, which means espresso drinks always have a perfect crema. Cappuccino and latté lovers will be pleased with the exclusive chamber that mixes steam and milk into a delicious, creamy froth. The espresso maker has a stainless-steel boiler for durability and a removable spill tray for easy cleaning. DeLonghi offers a one-year limited warranty on defects in materials and workmanship for this two-in-one espresso/coffee machine. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Both a regular coffeemaker and espresso machine, this1,500-watt appliance has separate water tanks for simultaneouslybrewing drip coffee and espresso. The espresso machine side has abuilt-in frothing system with a milk tank for creating cappuccinos andlattés in their cups. Separate knobs select the strength of bothregular coffee and espresso. Making espresso follows tradition: tampcoffee into a filter basket inside a filter holder, twist the filterholder onto the machine, pour water into the machine's boiler, andpress a button. Depending on the amount of water added, up to four2-ounce cups then flow into an 8-ounce glass carafe.

Making regular coffee also follows tradition: insert a filter (apermanent Gold Tone filter is included) into the filter basket, spoonin coffee, add water to the coffeemaker's removable tank, and press abutton. Up to 10 5-ounce cups of coffee then flow into a 50-ounce glasscarafe on a warming plate. (For five or fewer cups, speed up thebrewing process for full flavor.) A digital clock/timer makes itpossible to program a select time for "wake-up coffee" up to 24 hoursin advance. The brewing process pauses if the carafe is removed for amidbrew pour. A water filter removes chlorine, and a cup-countingsystem blinks a reminder when the machine requires decalcification.Encased in both bright and matte-finish black plastic, the machinemeasures 16 inches wide, 13-1/2 inches high, and 9 inches deep andcarries a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Coffee afficionado
I have owned this coffee machine for one year now, and choose to make my own coffee in the morning verses patronizing the nearest Starbucks. The programmable feature is easy to use. Being a coffee afficianado, I realize the best way to brew coffee is with a french press, which I do on the weekends when I have the time. I have owned a Mr. Coffee, and the two newest Krups aroma line (top shelf), and would have to say, that I am happiest with this one. The milk frother has made cafe quality foam for my latte consistently verses the Krups brand, which made foam watery on some occasions. You can take apart the apparatus where the milk is supposed to go, the espresso container, as well as the where the water goes so you can virtually clean the entire machine!!
What I like best is that you control the flavor of the coffee with the accuflavor switch, the consistent latte foam, and the light that goes on and off , signalling when to change the water filter.

What it could improve on is that if you prefer your coffee on the weak side, then you will find that some of your coffee grounds are dry when you open the filter to clean the grounds out. If you prefer it on the stronger side, such as myself, then you will be fine.

I have used this machine 5 days a week for a year, in entertaining parties, and having get togethers, making 2-10 cups of coffee and have had someone comment on the great coffee. Great beans and a great coffee maker go hand in hand. Definitely worth the money!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars It'll heat up, give it time.
I've just finished reading the reviews about this coffee system. I understand the complaints about it not getting the coffee hot enough -- I had the same experience when I first got the machine home. I've since learned that this coffee machine is a steam/bottom-up coffee maker -- in other words you have to wait about 5 minutes after it has brewed before you get a cup of hot coffee; it adds to the brewed coffee heat from a bottom element -- think hot plate. For most, it should be hot enough to add cream or milk and still be a great cup of coffee.

Just be patient!

I know! I know! It's hard to wait most mornings for that first cup, but trust me on this -- five, 10 minutes, tops. You can take advantage of the clock and have it pre-brewed before you even get up if you feel you just can't wait for it to brew.

The steamer is great. This particular model allows you to steam straight into your coffee cup. No need to use a separate glass to steam the milk and then pour it into your coffee. Instead you can just pour in the milk into your coffee and use the steamer to froth up. Of course, should you prefer, you can do it the old-fashioned way too, with a separate glass for the frothed milk.

Cleaning it is a breeze: Everything comes apart -- from the interior water tank that you can pull out by a handle to fill your coffee maker up (rather than pour the old-fashioned way into the coffee pot, then into the coffee maker tank), you pour the milk directly into the steamer side and it lifts out for easy cleaning also.

Overall I'd say this is a great machine. I'd agree that if you're itchy for a hot cup of coffee immediately after its brewed, you might want to look at another model. It's a design flaw in an otherwise great system. But once you get used to using it, you'll find it's a pretty great machine.

1-0 out of 5 stars JUNK!!!!!
This is a piece of JUNK! The steaming tube is to short, needs to be out the side of the machine and longer. The steam from the espresso ruined the clock and controls, it wont turn off and the on light just flashes. The espresso only brews a double shot then steams the last double shot, should brew a quad shot. Stops brewing espresso after double shot, have to manually adjust the richness level knob to get the other double out. Coffee is way to cold! Needs a built in espresso tamper to compress the espresso grinds in the cup for better more efficient brewing. Just an all around space taker on my counter top. Not user friendly!

4-0 out of 5 stars I was surprised to see all the negative reviews
I've had my machine for about a year and have had no problems. It is one of the most complicated coffee makers to use though and you must READ THE MANUAL. The clock problem everyone talks about is not a problem but is in the design. There is a function that counts the number of pots of coffee you make and doesn't let you make any more after 200 pots without resetting the counter. This has to be set out of the box. I think you hold the on and prog buttons down together for about 5 seconds to reset it.

Mine seems to make the coffee fine and i don't use the espresso that often but I've used it a half dozen times with no problems.

I don't like my coffee that hot so its fine for me. No coffee maker has ever satisfied my wife though and that's the same for this one.

I am looking for a replacement filter which should be replaced annually and that's how I ended up here. Anybody know where to find one. We have quite hard water and the charcoal filter was why I bought this unit. The coffee taste a lot better that my previous maker that did not have one.

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of Junk
The clock goes off every day. The unit turns itself on randomly, I now keep it unplugged for fear it might be a fire hazzard. Called customer service, they were useless. Would never buy a Delonghi product again. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Savor a burst of true Italian flavor at home with this DeLonghi espresso and cappuccino maker. With a durable stainless-steel boiler, two thermostats (for water and steam), 35-ounce water reservoir (which removes for easy filling and cleaning), and two nozzles, this self-priming pump machine brews up single or double shots of espresso in just minutes. As for taste, the machine’s ‘sempre crema’ filter holder produces a perfect, caramel-colored crema, the essence of great espresso. Before brewing, a built-in tamper levels and presses the grounds before use; some practice is usually required to tamp at just the right pressure. After brewing, a lever on the filter holder flips up to hold the metal basket in place in order to knock out the used grounds. Three switches make the entire brewing process intuitive: on/off, espresso/water delivery, and steam: the machine preheats cups and filter holder with hot water and also froths milk for cappuccino using a swivel steamer and adjustable steam control knob. An "OK" light illuminates when the machine is fully heated and ready to go. A drip tray under the nozzles holds two espresso shot glasses or cups (not included), and removes for dishwasher cleaning. The machine measures 11-1/2 by 8-1/2 by 7-1/4 inches, and is covered by a one-year warranty against defects. --Ann Bieri ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Not a bad little expresso/cappucino maker!
I received this expresso maker for Christmas after having everyone in my family laugh at my request, as I have never been a coffee drinker. However, my family indulged me and now it is I who has the laugh last. I make a cappucino every day, sometimes two or three . . . and I love this little machine. It is very easy to clean, very easy to make, and I am happy with the taste of the cappucinos I make -- I use different flavored syrups and powdered toppings to make the cappucino just the way I like it! It took me a variety of tries to get the "perfect" cup of cappucino -- sometimes it wasn't very hot, sometimes the milk didn't froth/foam well when steamed -- but I think it was all a matter of trial and error to come upon the best ways to make a good cup. You definitely need to let the machine preheat for a half hour before making the expesso/cappucino; and I discovered it is best to steam the milk for as long as possible in order to heat up the milk enough so it doesn't cool your coffee down. Again, once you play around with it a little, you will discover what works best for you. Overall, I am very satisfied with this machine and am truly giving it quite a workout, using 2-3 times a day!

3-0 out of 5 stars MAY BE CARAMEL COLORED BUT NOT AT ALL CREAMY
While this was touted as making the true espresso - a creamy caramel colored liquid which is the epitome of true espresso - tain't so. Crema, as many will agree, is not true espresso.

Nonetheless, not being one to quibble about an over enthusiastic press release, we gave it a try. In fact, several tries and then returned to our old espresso maker. The used grounds weren't removed but settled nice ly into our glasses, and the temperature gauge is testy to say the least.

Caio to this! ... Read more

Italian-made and sleek in structure, the DeLonghi Metropolis electric teakettle boils water in mere minutes. Better still, the powerful 1500-watt heating element is concealed in a flat disk base that allows for 360-degree rotation and easy cordless serving. Crafted with a stainless-steel interior, the kettle rests comfortably on the base and turns on with a simple plastic depressor button. For safety, a three-way system guards against overheating and boiling dry--it shuts off the kettle automatically if you lift it, if the water boils, or if it is empty. DeLonghi also includes a washable screen filter to keep impurities and deposits out of your tea.

Arced and rounded, the kettle's handle is comfortable, and the spout is sharply turned to prevent drips and splashes. A clear water level indicator shows minimum, maximum, and liter markings. Fashionably finished in graphite with chrome and black accents, the kettle is a handsome countertop staple. The on/off button could be a bit more durable, but its use is simple and straightforward. Resting on its 8-inch base, the kettle stands 10 inches high and holds 58 ounces or 1.7 liters. It includes tidy power cord storage, a power indicator light, and a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Experience the uniform, precision grind of a burr coffee grinder and you’ll never go back to the blade style. The burrs act in a similar fashion to grindstones, one on top of the other, and the closer they’re set together, the finer the grind. Also, burrs emit less heat than blades, and heat can negatively affect the taste of coffee. Elegant and nicely weighted, this 85-watt, retro-look grinder with rubber feet sits securely on the counter and grinds beans without the slightest hassle. To use, simply put the beans in the top container, twist it to set it at one of eight settings from extra fine to coarse, then turn the timer dial. If you need enough ground coffee for a twelve-cup pot of coffee, that’s exactly how much will be ground. A chart on the lower grind-collecting container specifies how long to set the timer for the amount required. The lower container with its tight-fitting lid pulls off the machine so the ground coffee can be shaken out or kept inside for storage. The top container unscrews for cleaning by hand. Measuring 11-1/2 by 6-1/2 by 4-1/4 when assembled, the grinder stores even more compactly when the two containers are removed. For safety, the grinder will stop or simply not start if parts are not connected properly. Because a short cord is safer, the three-foot cord pulls out of the base to just the length you need, and retracts when a dial on the bottom of the grinder is turned. DeLonghi includes a plastic coffee measuring spoon and warranties the grinder for one year. --Ann Bieri ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great coffee!!
My wife and I would probably be considered coffee addicts; over the years we have refined our appreciation for "Heaven's Brew" to focus on quality rather than quantity. We like a rather strong, dark, rich but non-acidic, non-bitter cup to get our hearts started in the a.m., and to get there we found we had to grind our own. The blade grinders were OK, but you had to be careful or the coffee would be too fine, too coarse or just plain bitter from the heat of the blades. This grinder looked cool, so we decided to try it, and here's what we found:

1.) It's easy to get the perfect, uniform grind every time with the adjustable grind selection from superfine to extra coarse.

2.) The automatic timer (based on how many cups you'd like to brew) is absolutely perfect. If you can count up to 10 or know your ABC's and can turn a dial, you'll master this the first time.

3.) The bean reserve container holds a substantial amount of beans; we fill it twice a week and it stays fresh.

4.) The grounds container - with a graphic showing the suggested grind time per cup, in case you forgot - is easy to remove, easy to clean and seems to minimize the "coffee dust flux" we used to get from our blade grinders. You can seal the grounds container to keep some grounds in it, but we grind fresh every time.

5.) The machine seems bombproof. Good quality materials with no apparent weak parts to break off.

OK, is there anything negative? Well, it's kind of noisy. Not as noisy as a blade grinder, but you definitely know it's in operation. Here's a clue: you have very hard materials (beans and grinding stones) being forced together to the point where the harder material crushes the other. Turns out that might make some noise. The wonderful smell emanating from the process more than makes up for any noise you'll have to bear for a minute or so. Hey ... some days you're the bean, some days you're the burr!

Do yourself a favor and buy this machine. You'll like it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Burr grinder that more or less does the job
The features of this grinder are:

1. Burr grinder creates a consistent grind with less heat than blade grinders
2. 8 settings, from extra fine to coarse
3.Tablespoon timer grinds exactly the amount of coffee needed
4. Removable holder with lid for storage

Burr grinders are supposed to do a better job than blade chopper style grinders in keeping the delicate oils in the coffee grinds. We did find that the grinds are fluffy, indicating some oils must be on the surface. But "coarse to fine" is misleading; this grinds fine and finer. For press pots like the Bodum Chambord that require a very coarse grind, this grinder is not suitable. And the "tablespoon timer" is a bit silly; it's marked in LETTERS not numbers, which is dumb as you want to measure cups of coffee, not recite the alphabet.

However, for the money, if you want a burr grinder with storage of beans above and a cup for grinds, this really is an excellent price-value. It works fine. Just make sure you know whether you need a coarse or fine grind in your coffee machine of choice.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not as sturdy as it looks in the pictures.
Made mostly out of lightweight plastic but it grinds well. It does have two fairly minor problems though. One is that static makes the ground coffee stick to the plastic container. Not a big problem but it does make it look a bit unsightly. It also causes grounds to drop on the counter when removing the container. The second could be more serious. The grinder seems to freewheel now and then. I believe the beans are getting jammed in the hopper and not reaching the grinding wheels so it basically is acting like it is empty. I don't know what would happen if it was left doing that for the entire grinding cycle, maybe it would be just fine. The fix is easy, just give the machine a shake. Easy that is if you happened to be standing there and can hear it.

One other small complaint. DeLonghi has decided that there are two sizes of coffee cups in this world, big ones and (gasp!) little ones. Shockingly enough, those big ones take exactly (amazing isn't it?) twice as much coffee as the little ones! So instead of setting the grinding timer for 12 cups you set it for "F" which translates into 12 little cups or 6 big cups. Most of us with more than a 4th grade education (and even some who don't have one) have figured out that if you are using a 16 oz cup, you will not get 12 full cups of coffee out of your Braun 12 cup coffee maker. OK, so I figured out I set it on "F". But when I want to make a partial pot I have to look on their little scale which with 53 year old eyes isn't always easy until I find my reading glasses. I know I could figure it out without looking but most of this is occurring early in the morning when the synapses aren't firing at 100% yet. All pretty silly in my opinion.

Overall though, a good job of grinding. Consistent and it can grind quite fine. Stylish looking. Noisy as dental drill and about as pleasant to listen to in the morning. My first bur grinder. I would give it a qualified recommendation.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good price, yet doesn't do what it says
The good and the bad...

Pros: Good for even espresso and drip grinds. Small, cheap for burr grinder.

Cons: This machine does NOT grind coarse enough for a french press. Do NOT use for this purpose.

The price of this was pretty nice for a burr grinder. I love
the size of it - small, shapely, looks real nice. I suppose it would be a good grinder if you were only doing espresso or drip pot coffee, but for press pot (which is supposed to be the best way these days) it's horrible. Unless you like drinking sludge with your coffee.

The grind is just not course enough. They tell me that if you use a french press, you need to have a very even grind and very coarse. Approximately the size of the coarsest setting on your pepper grinder. As other reviewers have stated, this grind goes from fine to superfine, which is just not varied enough.

I'm having to return this based on the fact that it just doensn't do what it says. It is totally insufficient for the french press. False advertising? You decide.

But if you're wanting a well-designed, decently-priced grinder for espresso or drip pot coffee, then this is a good bet.

However, please look elsewhere if you're looking to make your coffee with a french press. If this is your purpose, don't waste your time and money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Coffee Beans not ground fine enough
This machine does not grind the coffee beans fine enough for our Krups Cappuchino maker, even though we tamp down the powder into the basket as we always did. The result is an extremely weak coffee, which we might as well not bother drinking.

We are very unhappy with our purchase. We used to have a blender with blades and wanted to try out a "burr" grinder. I am considering buying a blade style grinder again.

Amazon's policy says that you need to return the machine "unused" and like new. How is it possible for you to know how well a machine works, without ever using it? I think this is the last time we will buy any applicance online at Amazon. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Wish I had read these reviews before buying
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! I can't believe they are still selling it. I purchased this product in October 2003, it stopped working completely in Jan 2004, I contacted Delonghi and it took them two months to get me a new unit. I received the new product in March 2004 and this unit stopped working in June 2004. When I called Delonghi again, they said they would send me another unit and I would receive it in 4 to 8 weeks. What a waste. Each time I have to return the defective unit and pay shipping and be without a coffeemaker for months at a time. I also agree with all the other reviewers with the poor design elements. You can't pour without dripping coffee, no water level indicator, etc. I wish I had never bought this coffeemaker the first time.

1-0 out of 5 stars What a mess!
I was so excited to find, buy, and start using this coffee maker. More expensive than any I've ever purchased, I thought it would be well worth it to have the decaf I drink made right along with the reg. my husband enjoys. Well, was I ever disappointed! The unit looks impressive but a SEVERE design flaw makes it IMPOSSIBLE to pour a cup of coffee without the carafe leaking BIG time all over the counter. You have to pour over the sink and then wipe off the carafe. Also, as one of the other reviewers stated, it is very hard to use paper filters if you prefer the ease of just dropping the grounds in the trash. As we only use it on the weekend it is brewing and doing all other functions well, but that nasty mess is absolutely disgusting. Wish there had been reviews when I bought it many months ago. Hopefully it will give up the ghost soon like the other reviewers' models. I will never purchase this brand coffee maker again, and definitely do not recommend that anyone else does. Listen to those of us who've gone before: buyer beware!

1-0 out of 5 stars A true waste
The coffeemaker has so many problems/ The first coffeemaker I bought leaked water from the tank - Delonghi replaced it with a new maker which doesn't pump water to the coffeepot.... I feel it was true waste of money .

1-0 out of 5 stars Big Disappointment
This coffee pot did not make a very good cup of coffee and stopped working a week after I purchased it,( I bought it new)Just a word of advice, Buyer Beware!

1-0 out of 5 stars Just awful
I have to agree with the other reviewers. I had high hopes for this coffee maker but the reality was that it's the worst design I've ever seen. For starters, there is no water level indicator. The timer doesn't work. The filter holders are shaped so that if you like to use a paper filter it collapses and creates a big coffee mess. When you remove the coffee pot, coffee streams out, even though it's not supposed to. It's impossible to pour from the carafes without spilling all over the place. And, customer service at Delonghi is rude. DON'T BUY THIS. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars This is a espresso machine
This review is just an answer to the review made by someone else, complaining that they can't fit a mug into this coffee maker - this a ESPRESSO coffee maker and you are not supposed to fit a mug there simply because people don't dring espresso in mugs.

2-0 out of 5 stars If you like froth this you will have to toss!
This is an alright maker. The problem is that you can not fit the glass carafe or any normal sized mug under the frother. The nozzle does not extend beyond the machine and there is simply not enough room to get a mug under let alone move it up and down to froth the milk. I regret my purchase. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Both a regular coffeemaker and espresso machine, this 1,500-watt appliance has separate water tanks for simultaneously brewing drip coffee and espresso. The espresso machine side has a milk frother for creating cappuccinos and lattes. Separate knobs select the strength of both regular coffee and espresso. Making espresso follows tradition: tamp coffee into a filter basket inside a filter holder, twist the filter holder onto the machine, pour water into the machine's boiler, and press a button. Depending on the amount of water, up to four 2-ounce cups then flow into an 8-ounce glass carafe.

Making regular coffee also follows tradition: put a filter in the filter basket, spoon in coffee, add water to the coffeemaker's removable tank, and press a button. Up to ten 5-ounce cups of coffee then flow into a 50-ounce glass carafe on a warming plate. (For five and fewer cups, the brewing process can be sped up to provide full flavor.) The brewing process pauses if the carafe is removed from the warming plate for a mid-brew pour. Encased in both bright and matte-finish black plastic, the machine measures 16 inches wide, 13-1/2 inches high, and 9 inches deep and carries a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ...

This cordless electric percolator brews two to six 5-ounce cupsof coffee and lifts off its power base for convenient pouring. Anadjustable thermostat permits brewing to be set anywhere from light tostrong and also varies the warming temperature when the brewing processis complete and the percolator automatically switches to keep-warmmode. Lights signal when power is on and when brewing is complete. Areal beauty, the percolator is made of stainless steel with amatte-finish body. A band around the top and the spout are polished toa mirror finish. The handle, a band on the bottom, the power base, andthe ball-shaped knob atop the plastic lid (which is transparent formonitoring the brewing process) are all matte-finish black plastic tocomplete the updated retro look.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stopped working in 6 months!
Junk. Stopped heating up after 6 months of use! Wouldn't come on, wouldn't heat, junk. AND customer sevice is a huge disappointment! Would not honor warranty because serial number indicated that manufacture date was more than one year ago!! Idiots! Top is leaky, and sometimes the pot would not perk for the full amount of time. DO NOT BUY.....

2-0 out of 5 stars Great Looking, Great Coffee, but my top broke in 4 weeks.
I have all sorts of coffee devices: drip, bodum, grinders, urns, etc. It was time to buy a new coffee maker since my Krups drip machine was no longer giving me suitably hot flavorful coffee and coffee is very important to me (and my marriage.) I thought it was time to go retro - and go for a perculator w/ style. I've been quite happy w/ this Delonghi Device - as it produced wonderfully hot and delicious coffee. Well it would have been nice if there was an on/off switch - since you have to unplug it. Also, it's a little tricky getting the top off. Today, after using the pot for one month, the top plastic part cracked - making the unit basically useless. Let me tell you, it was bound to happen sooner or later. I sent an email to the company today, and I'm hoping for a replacement part because despite it's weaknesses and clearly it's fragility, I'm still real attached to it. Maybe I should have purchased the Dualit Product (not available at Amazon.com, yet) instead, but the price of the Dualit is more than twice the price of this DeLonghi.) I'd rate the product with 5 stars if they replaced the plastic top w/ glass. Given it's very short life in my household, I have to give it only two stars - which is sad because it's still my favorite coffee pot.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wow! A Hot Cup Of Joe
This machine makes very HOT and rich tasting coffee. It tastes like the kind they sell at coffee houses, only without the $4 tab. Even after adding lots of real heavy cream straight out of the fridge the coffee remains HOT. It's nothing like the warm stuff that comes from drip machines. And the taste is so much more complex. No wonder my grandmother served percolator coffee exclusively at her house.

Unlike some of the other reviewers I haven't had any problem with grounds in the coffee. That's using a can of coffee with a label that says it's okay for percolators. Larger size grounds don't fall through the basket and into the pot. It's also very simple to set up...takes like 10 seconds.

The only things I'd change:

The lid is difficult to remove since it fits so tightly onto the pot. You have to twist it off from the metal band, not the tiny black knob on top and it takes a little elbow grease to remove it.

Thought I was getting an Italian made machine, but the box says it's made in China. Because of human rights issues and concerns about longevity based on reviews of other percolators that were manufactured there, that was an unpleasant surprise. But it comes with a one year warranty, so hopefully... After doing some research it appears that with the exception of Dualit, ALL percolators are made in China. Who knew? :-)

I've only had it for two days, but so far I love it!

2-0 out of 5 stars Looks good but no personality
I can assure you that the 'on' and 'off' LED's are as misleading to the consumer as they are to the manufactures customer service reps. They told me to return the unit as defective. When I got the new one; the LED functions were the same. Now the flimsy clear percolator top is leaking. DeLonghi should have a recall on this product ASAP.

2-0 out of 5 stars Is this worth it?
I was tired of the typical drip coffee makers and the ugly, plastic space those occupied on my counter. From the perspective of form, this percolator is great. From the perspective of coffee, I think there is something lacking.

One reviewer mentioned that the handle was shakey. It is, but only a little-bit. The top of the handle is connected by a screw. The bottom part is only kept in place by a tiny metal knob. Thus, a little wobble but not enough to be bad.

In order to turn this thing on and off, one must plug/unplug it from the wall socket. This is a bit misleading since the switch is labeled "off". The directions show the left of the dial to have an "on" label. Huh?

To remove the lid one must pull on the black knob on top. This is connected to a clear plastic dome. I'm afraid that some day I'm going to damage the plastic bubble due to the strength required to remove the top.

This will brew coffee within 3 minutes. It starts percolating within 5 seconds which amazes me. I always thought the percolation process to be much longer like aging wine. I guess not. It's difficult to make ultra strong coffee with this. I have the dial turned to "dark" everytime. I haven't had any of the coffee ground problems mentioned by another reviewer.

Overall, this is a typical Italian product. High on form and functionality, but low on results/coffee quality... ... Read more

Savor a burst of true Italian flavor at home with this DeLonghiespresso maker. With a self-priming pump, large 68-ounce waterreservoir (which removes for easy filling and cleaning), and twonozzles, this electric machine brews up single or double shots ofespresso and can quickly produce more. For a brunch or after-dinnercrowd, it's unbeatable. Froth a perfect cappuccino with the swivelsteamer and separate steam control knob. A drip tray under the nozzlesholds two espresso shot glasses or small cups (regular coffee cupswon't fit underneath), and removes for easy cleaning. Twostainless-steel filter holders are provided: one for finely groundespresso coffee (tamp with the built-in tamper), and one that holdsspecial prepackaged coffee pods (no tamping and little cleanuprequired). The detailed instruction booklet seems daunting at first,but the lighted settings work intuitively.

1-0 out of 5 stars Do Not Buy This!
You'd be better off trying to make your own espresso machine from twigs, an old shoe, and some duct tape. It would be eaiser to use, produce better results, and it wouldn't cost you $200. Seriously- it's loud, it leaks, the directions are indecipherable. As a comparison, I also have a $50 Krups machine that works far, far better. The only thing good about the DeLonghi is its aesthetics.

1-0 out of 5 stars Did not last three weeks!!!
It no doubt produces a good expresso. I am an avid drinker and so is my wife. We were very happy with the taste. However, the quality of the machine leaves me with many questions. The machine leaks constantly like a cracked pipe through the frother. After three weeks of daily use, the machine ceased to work. So what did I do, I looked in the back of the box to see where it was manufactured. What a surprise. The ad says "imported". Yeah, imported from China. That explains the quality of the machine. Unfortunately that does it for me buying itmes manufactured in China with the price tag the machine has. If you consider buying the amchine, take into consideration the quality of the the workmanship and then the price.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, reliable machine with a couple of minor drawbacks
I have had my machine for about 15 months. It has been well worth the money, saving our family hundreds of dollars we would otherwise spend at local cafes.

The pros:
- It's easy to use and quick to heat up for espresso and for steaming. I rinse the basket and the espresso cup with hot water from the tap just before I run it, and the coffee seems hot enough to me.
- I find that the steamer makes perfect foam every time (I submerge the end of the wand just below the milk surface as described in some of the other reviews).
- I like the large-capacity water tank.

Cons:
- The steamer wand does drip, so I just keep a small glass under it at all times. I find that I can reduce the dripping by cranking the steamer knob shut tighter, but I can never completely eliminate the dripping.
- It's a big machine! It takes a fair amount of counter space.
- As with every other espresso machine I have owned, I still have to preheat my milk in the microwave before steaming it; I like a lot of milk in my lattes.
- With our grinder, it's easy to end up with coffee that's a little too fine (results in a burnt taste) or a little too coarse (results in weak espresso). But I couldn't get the coffee fine enough when we had a burr grinder.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Machine Great Espresso
Ok, I ordered this machine from Amazon excited because of all the good things I had heard and what the features of the machine. However, in the time it took to get to my house, I began seeing more poor reviews and what was when I ordered it a 4 and 1/2 star machine dropped to a 3 star machine. All these bad reviews about leaking and things made me wonder if I had a quality Item.
First things first, I got the machine, cleaned it up and made espresso. The initial try was average and needed some work, especially since I still hadn't gotten my burr grinder that I ordered. After a few practices, I had excellent espresso with perfect crema. Also, the milk frother works perfect! Foamy milk everytime! This is an awesome machine and I highly reccomend it.

Now as far as the leaking goes. Some said that it leaked on them after 6 weeks or so. Well mine leaked on me the second day. However, I think the leaking was normal and not something that could be fixed. What it is, is the left over water in the system gets pushed out from the pressure when you are using the machine (making more espresso, pre-heating, or frothing). I have found that if you run the frother and espresso without the water tank attached for a few seconds and get all of the water out, the leaking stops. Also, you could just put a small dish underneath which does the trick. Either way, I didn't find this to be a major problem.

Secondly, when I first got the machine, I used my tap water which gave the water a burnt like taste. If this happens to you, use distilled water! With distilled water, I don't get the taste anymore--apparently, my water has too much chemicals and calcium.

All in all, this is a great machine and I am very satisfied. If you use the machine correctly, you can get quality results!

I gave the item four stars because there are a few things that could be improved upon.

1-0 out of 5 stars Leaky machine + bad service = poor purchase
For the first six months after I purchased this machine, I thought I had made an excellent purchase. However, the machine began to leak from the steam tube during and after making an espresso or cappuccino. I finally decided to send it in for service to the local Northern Virginia service center to which I was directed by the Delonghi web site. The local service center informed me that they then send it to Delonghi for onward processing; a two step process that, unbeknowst to me, added weeks to the ultimate servicing of the machine. I experienced awful service from the local service center and a rather hands-off approach from Delonghi. After 8 weeks, I still could not even locate where the machine was, nor when I would be getting it back. If you want a machine that takes a long time to heat up, that may well begin leaking after purchase and then will takes months to get serviced, then this is your machine. Frankly, I would strongly recommend against buying this machine. There must be better and less expensive machines on the market. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good, but not perfect.
If you want a coffeemaker that looks good and makes great coffee this one fits the bill....but it has some drawbacks. I find some of the features rather pointless, such as the swivel control center, but others may find them useful.

I do have two issues with this item:

1. The clock, being positioned on top of the control center is unviewable unles you are looking directly down at it...at almost any other angle it appears to read "8888." However, we don't buy a coffeemaker for the clock so it's merely annoying.

2. The carafe could be designed much better. In less than two weeks the top, which is glued on poorly, has come off. The manufacturer has told us the carafe alone is not available yet, so we have no way to pour coffee without spilling it all over the counter.

The bottom line is it makes a great cup of coffee and it really looks quite stylish...but it needs a carafe that is functional.

4-0 out of 5 stars Warning: undocumented "feature"
This coffee maker has a quirky little feature: every 40 cycles the ON light starts blinking indicating that it's time to "descale" the coffee maker (with vinegar and water mixture, if you are inclined to do so). The trouble is that the manual does not mention this reminder feature. I had to call the customer service to find out that you need to press and hold HR and MIN buttons together to reset the blinking light.

The good thing is that I was favorably impressed by the customer service: almost no hold time, no endless menus, and quick and polite response to my question.

The most important thing is that this machine brews decent coffee and works fine overall. You can "steal" a cup while the coffee is brewing without spilling it all over the hot plate.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Coffee & they must have fixed the carafe...
Not sure about the previous reviews of carafe leaking - ours is fine and it makes the best coffee I've ever had.
As for the look - I like it! Does NOT appear cheap and the tones of 'chrome' are consistent and the overall design is really quite attractive. And no problems with flashing lights...timer is easy to use and the clock is easy to read. Removable water tank is excellent idea.

Good Coffee.
Cool design.

1-0 out of 5 stars next garage sale to this goes.................
ulgy, cheap and how did they ever get all those tones and textures of plastic "chrome" on one appliance. I feel like i should dye my hair blonde, paint my nails red and chew purple bubble gum whenever i'm near this thing. Its affect on one is really scary and makes Linda Blair in the Exorist look like an angel. Plastic shavings from the lid have accompanied several cups of lukewarm coffee. Yes,yes,yes the ever flashing red light and I could clean my entire house before the pot was filled. Total trash.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but good coffee
This coffee maker looked cool in the catalogue, but a lot of the "chrome" is really plastic. Other reviewers have commented about the carafe's lid -- it DOES come off with effort and snaps back on after cleaning. There is a messy, grey sealant around the edge of the carafe (under the lid) that helps to prevent leakage during pouring. The timer is easy to set. I did run into the red-light-flashes-continuously problem -- BIG thanks to the previous reviewer who posted the solution! Finally, if brews a little slowly compared to my deceased Braun unit, but it makes a REALLY good cup of coffee. I knew the Italians would get that part right; they take their coffee seriously. ...

This versatile coffee grinder prepares beans for any method of coffee brewing. Three different grind settings offer a range of grinds from coarse for coffee percolators to medium for drip coffeemakers to fine for espresso makers. Whichever grind you prefer, the burr grinding wheels always produces grounds of a uniform texture. The transparent lid easily pops off to load the grinder with whole beans. A side button grinds up to 16 tablespoons of coffee into the transparent container below with either a constant or pulsing touch. The grounds container sticks a bit upon removal, but has a lift-off lid to keep grounds from spilling out while you are tugging at it. The upper grinding mechanism also detaches for easy cleaning. For safety, the grinding wheels stop if the grounds or whole bean containers are not in place. DeLonghi offers a one-year limited warranty on defects in materials and workmanship for this burr coffee grinder. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A decent little grinder
I ran out and bought this when my Mr. Coffee burr grinder died so I wouldn't have to use the blade grinder. It's a nice livable sound level. I could actually grind coffee for morning without fearing to wake anyone else in the house. It makes excellent tasting coffee. I had no problems with static. The only drawbacks are that you have to hold the button down and it has to be taken apart and well cleaned with a brush almost every time. Makes good coffee though. Much better than a blade grinder and you have to hold the button on those as well.

1-0 out of 5 stars Save your money
I agree with everything the previous reviewer wrote. Plus, after 3 months, my grinder jammed up and now doesn't grind coffee at all.

3-0 out of 5 stars coffee grinds everywhere
Pros:
-looks cool
-it's a burr grinder

Cons:
-takes at least four times longer than a conventional grinder
-grains are not very uniform (big bits throughout)
-messy: the bottom compartment has a plastic lid that you open before you dump the grinds into your filter. You have to tug the lid a bit, and more than once the coffee grinds have spilled to the nether regions of my kitchen. Grinds tend to stick to the lid and within the compartment. The oils from the beans make the grinds harder to empty.
-you gotta shake it some: the beans have to feed into the blades, but there isn't enough of a slope for the beans to slide smoothly. You have to shake the grinder often, otherwise the beans just stay put while the blades continue to whirl thin air. ... Read more

As the previous reviewer stated, I was also initially impressed with this coffee maker: it makes a decent cup of coffee.However, two things about this coffee maker are quite annoying, so much so that if I had kept my receipt and the box, this would be going back to the store. 1. If the grind of the beans is too fine, the water backs up in the filter after the brew should be completed. 2. The carafe will spill coffee all over your counter top about every time you go to pour a cup, unless you use your thumb to hold down the plastic lid and then you can easily burn yourself from the steam. My advice: avoid this coffee maker.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not so great
Initially, I liked this coffee maker well enough.The reuseable filter is a plus, and the coffee tastes good. But two characteristics make this one a loser:
1.The coffee gets way too hot if it sits on the warmer longer than 20 minutes; and more importantly,
2.The removable lever that allows the pause and serve feature to work is unreliable.It occasionally gets stuck and blocks the opening so that when brewing a new pot, all the water collects and stays in the basket (until you manually fix the lever). The thing easily pops off, and drives me CRAZY.

I would not buy another DeLonghi coffeemaker.
