Horrible Avoid

Just after 12 months of use the milk wand just leaking water every time you make a coffee. They replaced the item. Same thing happened. Now they won’t help, even though they know it’s a reoccurring fault. They shouldn’t be selling this item. Won’t be buying this brand again. Show details

Don't Clean or Descale!! It'll break!

After following instructions to clean and Descale my machine, water now jets out of the steam wand when I try and make a coffee.
The loss of pressure through the group head means, no more barista coffee...!
Very annoyed, dissatisfied customer that will never buy Sunbeam products again - and advise everyone to do the same.
Not wasting time or money on customer service and repairs - out with the trash and time for a better machine.
Thanks for nothing Sunbeam Show details

LEAKING!!

Purchased via Amazon worked great for 1 week and then I started to notice the puddle of water underneath the machine. Considering I'm not the only one with this issue I'm surprised they haven't withdrawn the machine from the market. Purchased via Amazon who will refund me but not replace which is very disappointing. Show details

Saved my sanity over lockdown

A fortuitous impulse purchase in Dec 2019. Coming up 3 years old, used every day by large family. Get a better coffee out of it than do at most cafes. Worth investing time in learning how to use the machine and experimenting. Find a bean you like. We don't just buy what's on special at the supermarket. The best grind setting varies with different beans and also the freshness of the beans. Try different tamping pressures until you get it right. We heat the milk hotter than it says in instructions but stop short of burning it. Show details ·  1

Practical, perfect, easy to use, great value for money

Perfect addition to my kitchen, I love waking up to make a delicious coffee. The Barista max is easy to use and doesn't take up to much bench space. With this machine I can grind my beans to fine or coarse, with a variety of different options. Choose between 1, 2 or manual shot, hot water, and steam/froth the milk. It comes with a everything you need to make the perfect cuppa. This machine is easy to clean and alerts you when you need to give it a deep clean. Such great value for everything included. Highly recommended. Show details

Great little machine

Got this nifty little coffee machine for my birthday. I would definitely say it makes a good coffee, however it does not make a great one. Although it is priced at $649 which i won't call cheap, it is quite average quality. The biggest issue is getting the griding right. I absolutely am not a fan of turning the hopper to adjust the grind. Even in the coarse grind setting it comes as a fine powder and if you are not careful with your tamping, no shot would come out. Also it would like a better tamper to come with the machine. The default one is very flimsy and cheap. It would have been great if it only dosed enough for a shot. Show details

Dont waste your money

Purchased my first one in April 22 and returned it for a replacement 3 weeks later. The second one is also a lemon. The problem with both was a lack of pressure when extracting the coffee. It took AGES as the coffee would very slowly drip, drip, drip. No continuous stream of coffee at any stage. I will return this one and pay extra for a better brand. Unfortunate as this would have been excellent value if it actually worked as it should. Show details

Solid performer

Made hundreds of latte's. Bought scales to control the dosage per shot. Without these, good luck. Steam is a little slow, but for a cheap machine it's ok. The grinder is ok,, and again the key to good shots. Developed a sml water leak after hundreds of coffees so off to repair. Seems fair. Saved us so much money and our home made coffee is better than many Cafe. Show details

Poor quality Machine with obvious design flaw

I loved my machine however it is 13 months old just out of warranty and has started to leak water out of the steam wand. I have cleaned the machine weekly and it is well looked after. Disappointed as obviously this is a design flaw in the machine. I would have expected to get 5 years out of the machine for the price. Update 14 months machine has now died. Don’t buy one. Show details

Love it

Great little machine. Had it a few months now and use it a 2-3 times every day. Took a week or so to get a good consistent coffee out of it, but that's pure user error. I really like the grinder mechanism and how the light comes on. I just noticed the floating "please empty tray" sign, I've been wondering what that was, very cute.

Obviously I don't know how long it will last and it's my first machine so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I'm really happy with it so far. Show details

2nd replacement, water leakage from steam wand during coffee extraction

This is our 2nd EM5300 machine under warranty. It's been 1 year and 4 months since its been replaced. It has always been good and easy to use, cleaning and descaling are always maintained when required. However at 16 months mark there are now two issues, water dripping from the steam wand when extracting coffee and it is failed to produce consistent high steam pressure.

What is your solution if you face similar issues? I appreciate your help. Show details

Hello.
Our machine (less than 1.5 years old) is dripping in places it shouldn't be and when it shouldn't be. Yesterday it started running out of the steam wand when we were trying to put a shot of coffee in which means there's no pressure where the coffee runs out..We've also cleaned it and the cleaning light does not go off. Please help!

I have the same issue. I found this info on a repairers website:
"Part Number: EM5300165
Note: if hot water comes out of steam nozzle instead of coffee coming out from Head then this selector switch could be faulty"

Thank you James! We'll definitely try that!

We have had the Barista Max for about 1.5yrs, has worked well. Now when turning on.. The dial light and the steam light are both flashing on/off very fast. The other three lights for Manual, 1 cup and 2 cups are not lighting up. I have scoured the internet for solutions, but no help. Please help...

Hi Nick, same thing is happening to my machine. We're you able to fix the problem?

After cleaning and several descaled attempts now find that the steamer light does not come on, resulting in steamer not being operative. Any suggestions. Serial number being 2418.
