Makes great coffee and perfect for my coffee illy too
My sister in law gave this to me as a gift a couple of years ago and I was really happy with its performance.
I cannot clearly remember but it lasted my a couple of years and this machine is very durable.
Generally it's excellent, though I have a few little complaints.
Mine doesn't seem to handle pre-ground coffee too well, though I have to confess I've only tried that a couple of times.
With a little reading the instructions and regular cleaning of this machine, I think this will last you a long time.
And it's complicated--I have to get out the manual every time I want to descale it.
But apart from those minor irritations, which may be more problems with the consumer than with the unit, we have been very happy with it, and feel lucky to have it.
