Summary: This is the third DeLonghi coffee maker I've had over MANY years. I just love this drip coffee maker. My coffee consistently tastes great. Helpful hint : keep 3 pennies on the warming plate at all times. The carafe of coffee tastes excellent for a longer period of time before it begins to tase like rot-gut.
Summary: My wife and I had two others before this. They usually last about 5-6 years. The coffee is amazing. It brews at the right temp and the you would think it is a much more expensive machine. When our last one began to leak, I decided to get a more expensive model. BAD IDEA. After 3 months my wife and I had enough. We got rid of the other model and went back to our DeLonghi. NEVER AGAIN WILL WE STRAY.
Summary: So close, but yet so far! The best built of the last few we've been forced to try. The blue lit readout is very annoying. We cover it up every day! The designers apparently never used it, since the lid drips a couple teaspoons of water from condensation on the lid when you lift it up. Every day we have to spunge that up. The cup readings in the reservoir are not the same as what you get from the pot, but that's not a big deal.
I ordered it from Amazon and got it for a really good price with free shipping

Summary: I tried to search on the Internet for a coffee maker that made delicious coffee. Since this one was higher rated for coffee taste and affordable, I ordered it from Amazon and got it for a really good price with free shipping. It was packed well, easy to set up, and if I make sure to grind the coffee to a drip grind, not too fine, the coffee tastes really good. I recommend this coffee maker.
Summary: Obituaries, March 13th, 2014. Our DeLonghi coffee maker, purchased from Amazon, passed away early this morning. It's never good to lose someone you had just gotten to know after only a few months, but this was a total surprise. It was totally unexpected and there had been no warning signs prior. Usually, we can prepare ourselves if there is an extended period of slow progression into a downward spiral, but this just wasn't the case this time.
Summary: I purchased two of these in the past. I love the look! Unfortunately, each one stops working after a year of daily use. I hoped the third one would be the charm but I was wrong. It died within a year of daily use. (And, yes, I cleaned each one periodically according to instructions). I asked friends and family for recommendations for drip coffee makers. NO ONE could recommend a single one. They are all plastic and all stop working after 1-2-3 years of use. Sad.
Summary: 1 - when cold water is in the pot, it pours OK. When heated, the plastic top ring expands and hot liquid seeps (pours) out from around the plastic to glass seal and runs down the side and on floor. 2 - when you open the top after using it, the condensed water on the inside runs down the inside top and out the back on the table.
