Awful machine... old model was better
Just installed this model after giving up on previous 5/6year old model - very similar to the other review we’d had it serviced about 4 times over last 2 years (at up to $400 a service) and finally decided not to repair it the the last time. Coughed up the big $ for the new model (as it matched our other built in appliances & for the existing hole)
Devastated to see they have scrapped the regular milk wand frother and created a milk jug frother attachment - so you can’t manually froth milk whatsoever!! The jug is awful and makes a huge mess, you have no control over the process and it does an absolutely terrible job. Coffee Looks like a bubble bath. Should have read the reviews... but naively assumed I was just replacing with the same machine. We’ve just thrown away over 4K and will still be buying coffees down the street.
Purchased in May 2019 for $4,700.00.
Love my coffee
For a premium product, try another brand
I had the original smeg coffee machine which was also plumbed in. This produced nice coffee and you could control the milk consistency. Over its six year life it went back for 13 repairs. The last one was the electronic board, which was going to cost more to repair than a new machine. It made rougly 300 cups of coffee for every repair. Not good odds for an expensive machine. After much discussion the old machine was replaced with the newest model. Now i have to fill the water tank every 4 coffees, it makes terrible steamed milk, which there is almost no control over, and the coffee is barely warm, despite having the tempt to high. You are better off with a department store cheapie. At least you wont feel like you have been ripped off
