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

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

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

A Little Disappointing

3 things that I have noticed:
Machine is quite noisy,
Hard to open the top lever and feels like it may break,
After using a double shot capsule the machine will not work with a single shot capsule unless I push within the capsule slot and reset the spring loaded section that makes contact with the front face of the capsule.
Otherwise produces Okay coffee and a good crema. Show details

Cannot live without!

I absolutely love our pod machine, so easy to use and honestly feels like I have just got a coffee from one of the coffee shops except I get to enjoy it in the comfort of my own home. The fathers day special was great which made getting the machine super affordable along with all the pod flavours to try. Show details ·  1

Perfect and Happy

Really happy I did this with the offer they had - Free Machine - and then buy the Pods.

The best part of this - the machine is also user friendly with Nespresso etc - so best of both worlds

Cant fault it 5 Stars all the way. Show details ·  1

Great Machine Easy To Use - just a question on custom pour settings

I really like the look and operation of this machine. Great selection of pods. Good Flavours. Only limitation was I can't seem to program more than a 270ml pour size Show details ·  2

Brilliant!

Brilliant! Have had my L'ior for approx. 3 months now. Easy to operate; water tank is quite large as is the capsule holder. It produces brilliant coffee every cup and the range of capsules on offer is fantastic from mild to extra strong and the water temp. remains constant.
I love it and recommend to all Show details ·  1

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.

The water is not dispensing through the machine. The water tank is in the correct place. I have tried the descaling instructions but the wayer does not come through the machine. How can I resolve this? Any ideas as I am losing patience with it? Sarah
