I love my DeLonghi Bar32 Retro 15-bar Pump-driven Espresso/Cappuccino Maker. It was exactly what I ordered and with the return of my other espresso machine, which I was only able to return because I got the two year warranty, and the credits from my club O membership. This machine only cost me $$$ !!!!! O.co Rox!
I replaced a DeLonghi toaster with this Cuisinart. The Cuisinart falls way short of what I was used to. It toasts erratically, and unevenly and has a "tinny" feel to it compared to my old one. I kept it, but it is disappointing.
It took a few days of adjustments to get the desired taste of coffee, but it would S really wonderful. Our Krups Super machine was almost 4 years old, and suddenly broke down., but was covered by our Overstock warranty. We received a full credit minus the warranty cost. That in itself was great! After researching, and trying one other we were unhappy with, we tried the Delonghi. The ONLY issues that need improvements in our opinion is the drip tray which was starting to scratch immediately. For such an expensive machine, it's cheaply manufactured. Also the replacement filters are VERY pricey. Other than that it makes a great cup of coffee with a beautiful layer of crema.
I love this machine! Read the instructions about cleaning it, descaling the machine yearly with specific cleaner or it will stop working. Sturdy machine makes great coffee, maintenance per the manual is key to keeping it working well.
