Do not buy

Stopped working regularly. Doesn’t penetrate coffee pods and leaks water out. Very poor quality. Show details

Great when it works

They only last a few months. Bad manufacture. I have had two replaced in less than 12 months. Will never buy another Phillips Product as long as I live. Show details

I love my L’or coffee machine

Had it for few months and I am really happy .
Very good price and quality. You can use almost any Capsule , including Nespresso . I like that you can even have 2 coffees at the same time . You have 3 options, short, medium or long . The coffee is always hot which is very important .
I am also happy that it has a good water capacity and also it can store many used capsules so no need to clean it every day like it happens with other brands. Really recommend. Their own coffee capsule are also amazing . Not many options, but they are nice. I love the Vanilla one. Show details ·  1

Cannot fault for price

Great little machine, you need to purchase milk frother separately for cappuccinos, but for all coffees great unit. LoR coffee pods are fantastic, just need to keep eye out when shopping between Coles and Woolies as they seem to alternate discounts, but machine very reliable, easy to maintain, easy to clean, great value for price Show details ·  1

Used 6 times a day and so great

Ok, my first pod machine. I like that I can use many different types of pods. I do not like the lor pods.
It’s not too big but I think it’s noisy. I can also choose many size of pour, so that is the biggest bonus. It was a birthday present. Show details ·  1

Just…does the job

Out of the box it worked best. Over time despite maintenance coffee quality dropped off a little, possibly due to pod punctures/pressure or water temperature. Very plasticky and the pod handle always felt loose. Recently it just stopped working, 3.5 years since purchase. For the price it did ok. Would I have paid more for better? Yes. Show details

The coffee stinks and tastes of burnt plastic

I bought this machine a week ago. We followed the diagramatic instructions and made some coffee. The stench and terrible taste was sickening. Since then we flush through two lungo measures of clear water, and then make our coffee which is not bad though you can still get a slight taste of the stench. Are we doing something wrong? Is there some packaging material stuck inside that we were not informed about? What causes this bad taste and smell? I must point out that when we do the first flush and smell the water it is dreadful. After two flushes it is almost OK. Show details

No after sales service

Purchased my L’or machine with attached milk frother which worked beautifully for 7 days. L’or side flicked me to Phillips who asked for photos and then video. A week later nothing. I’ve now sent a second email to Phillips who have now responded and are send a replacement frother.

Don’t buy this machine

Don’t waste your money on this machine. Mine broke after 2 days. Received direct from JD and they want me to go to a Phillips service centre to have it checked. The nearest service centre is an hour away. I wrote back and told them I’m not travelling all the way to a service centre, that they should come up with some customer service and find an alternative response. They couldn’t be bothered writing back. Won’t be buying their pods anymore. Show details

Disaster!

I just got this machine today and L’or sent me a broken, faulty piece of..machine!!! It is NOT working. The light keeps flashing (fast) the machine does not recognize the water tank or I don’t know what the problem is!!

And I don’t wanna deal with sending it back to you, especially considering that I already threw its box away.
How can they send a broken machine to me? I don’t work and earn money so that I would throw it away! Show details

Cheaply made machine

i would suggest now buying this machine after buying ours brought it home and it was leaking. after a few days of trying to find why said screw it and opened it up to find a faulty water hose in the back of the machine that as soon as the tank was connected would start leaking and would be empty in about 5 mins coffee isn't bad but having to put a towel on the bench every time i want a cup of coffee is less then ideal would be better if it was possible to buy replacement parts. Show details

hi, my unit is brand new. wont brew anything out of the spouts like it should, water ends up under the unit as if it is brewing like normal. The tank is fitted correctly just wont brew coffee, water dispenses as the cycle runs, but not to the coffee cup, it all ends up on the counter under the machine.

When I put a large pod in the machine, the lever closes smoothly. When I put in a small pod or it's empty, the lever is very hard to press down and pops up, unless you really heavily force it closed. Is this normal or is there a problem with the machine?
