Great Coffee machine, Love it!

I purchased this as my first "bean grinder" type of coffees machine about 4 months ago.
Needless to say I absolutely love it!
No issues and makes a Cafe type coffee easily! Easy to keep clean and very easy to use for the "beginner" Show details ·  1

worst coffee machine ever

would have to be the worst machine I have ever had. Wand didn't work well and descaling was hard to understand and didn't work at all. The barista plus was way better had longer time with it than this piece of crap.
Don't buy it Show details

Waste of money. Poor customer service

I purchased this machine 2 years ago for $550. Within that time my machine has stopped working due to a manufacturing fault where it leaks a lot of water, steamer does not work. Customer service for sunbeam have said it is out of warranty (which is only 1 year) and apologised. For the money you spend, seek another brand or save money and get a cheaper machine that will last you years. Show details

This coffee machine broke within two years - waste of money

At first I loved this coffee machine. But after around 18months it stopped working properly. It randomly spurts boiling water from the steam wand and has lost pressure in the coffee pour. I contacted both appliances online and Breville and they refused to help. For the price it should last more than 18months long. Show details

Do not buy always faulty

I have had issues with this machine, first time round they replaced it (after 6 weeks) due to it being completely faulty within one year, now my second machine (still within warranty) is having pump issues. My second warranty claim has been ignored and boarder line negligence. You would be better off with a Breville or DeLonghi. Customer service is very poor. Show details

Terrible - don't buy

Had it for less than 2 years and decided to stop working one day

Warranty is only 12 months so sunbeam wouldn't provide any assistance

Terrible coffee machine Show details

great coffee and great value for money!

What a fantastic coffee machine! It produces the best cup of coffee, at the best price out there!
No need to spend thousands of dollars on other brands, this Sunbeam machine does the perfect job!
i love the beans on board. You do have to get used to frothing your milk, but you get the hang of it - and become a mini barista. Show details ·  1

THIS MACHINE WAS GREAT WHILE IT LASTED - but now is leaking everywhere and can't create a shot

Had this machine less than 12 months but now it is leaking water out of various joints in the plastic underneath top of machine. Was going great, but now this! Can make a double shot with many drips. Can't do a single properly. Cleaning has been carried out regularly. Is used to make three shots of coffee a day. Bought through Amazon - can they refund for such a sad scenario? Cost about $460 April 2022.
I have read other reviews on Product review.com.au. Have found many people with same problem. Sad - it was a great machine while it lasted.

Update: Have contacted Amazon and they will refund. Thanks Amazon. Sunbeam apologised that product did not meet expectations. Show details

Good until it developed a leak

Worked well until it suddenly developed a leak through the steam wand. When we try and make a coffee the water comes through steam wand instead of coffee grounds.

We had the machine assessed for repair and will cost over $500 to fix.

Extremely disappointed as the last Sunbeam coffee machine we owned lasted for 10 years, this was a lot more expensive so we expected better.

Attempted mediation with Sunbeam but after promising to call me they never did. Show details

Sunbeam Barista Max Leaking. Again

Two separate machines. When being used both have developed serious leaking under unit. First unit started leaking after 2 months. Benchtop was ruined. A second machine received as a replacement has started leaking. Water is warm so it appears to be an internal leak when unit is under pressure. Used around two times a day as only two people in house and very few guests over the last two years. Not happy. Show details

Terrible!!

What a waste of money. Cannot get a decent cup out f it.
No pressure, have to half fill the group handle basket and can’t put any pressure on the tamping or coffee won’t pull through. End up with a nasty cup of coffee. It’s a disappointing waste of money. Show details
