Stopped heating
by: Mike

For a "high end, Italian design" product...this is not worth more than a 16.99$ coffee machine (and I am Italian!). Even then I am being nice...since the 16.99$ will out last this machine. Mine died 1 year and 4 months...good timing.

I opened it up to see if I could fix it...found some parts with evidence of burning. The front loading idea is great but water can easily get to the electronics below when pouring down.

My mistake not reading the reviews prior. Unfortunately, it is a woman magnet and I had no chance to get her out of the store without it! Damn you De'Longhi with your Italian charm and good looks you got me (her) this time. But not the next...

about time a front loading maker was invented
by: Anonymous

We had an under counter Black & Decker and it leaked, we had to keep a towel under the appliance at all times plus being attached under the counter it took up lots of room and you could not store anything under it. The purpose of the under counter and front loading was defeated.
So we were thrilled to find a compact coffee maker that was front loading! We have so much more counter space and no leaks. We haven't had any of the problems that others have stated. With all of the complaints, maybe they have fixed the problems.
Some people may not like the fact that some grounds do settle to the bottom of the pot but I love the fact that I do not need to buy filters. Like a good wine we do not finish the last drop.
This is one of the best buys we have made.

Leaks all over counter
by: Anonymous

The aroma feature does not work!! It actually causes coffee to spill all over the counter. When we contacted delonghi they told us to cut the cord and send the cord to them with a cheque for $15.00, so they could send us a new one. I'm sorry but this is your product. I paid for the original, which broke within 3 months of purchase. You send me a new one, I'm not paying another cent. Poor customer service.

Slow brewing
by: Max

Initially this coffee maker was fantastic although the brewing process was rather slow. As time went on, it grew worse and would take 30 minutes to brew 6 cups of coffee. Also, it is not easily repaired so we had to junk it after 5 months.
