Used to be great, now rubbish

I bought the stainless steel model about maybe 4 years ago. It’s a wonderful machine, still going great. More recently I bought the black truffle machine for use in a different location. It was terrible from the start: the auto milk frothing didn’t work. The retailer sent it away for repair but that didn’t help, so the retailer replaced it with a new one: the auto milk frothing didn’t work on that one either. The retailer replaced it again and, guess what, the third one had exactly the same problem. Now the retailer has refunded my money. Either this was a terrible run of luck (unlikely) or the manufacturer has changed the specs of this machine since I bought the original a few years ago. Avoid. Show details

So disappointed with this machine

After reading all the reviews that said this was easy to use all I want to do is throw it in the bin..so disappointed. Only 30mls coffee comes out of double shot. I read how to change it 2 60mls and it worked once then back to 30 mls. Now today I turned it on and the 2 coffee settings keep flashing. The temp of the milk even though set on the lowest temp came out at 90c. What a waste of $600. Show details

In love with Breville Bambino plus

Love my new Breville Bambino plus, especially the automatic milk frother.
Coffee temperature is nice and hot and I don't have to heat it any further in the microwave.
Small problem is the need to empty the tray each time as it is quite small but I can live with that. Love this product.

Great machine, homemade coffee that beats the local cafe

We got the machine at a discounted price thanks to a corporate partnership program with the vendor. The machine is easy to use and I love that it has 3 programmed levels of milk texture to choose from and also 3 temp settings for the milk - it makes it easy to automatically froth the milk to my preferred texture and temperature without trying to get it to the right texture and temp manually. The extraction of the coffee is also good. The only slight problem is that the drip tray is small and fills up quickly, especially as the steam wand has the auto clean functionality after each cup. But it's a minor inconvenience and overall we really do love this machine. Show details

Nice when it works

This is the second time I had this machine fixed in 6 months. First time within the first month no hot water, boiler dead. Second time I can’t get it out of cleaning mode no matter how many times I run the back flush program. Would I buy it again, NO way. Rubbish reliability. Show details
