After much research, I took the plunge to replace my broken Delonghi espresso coffee maker( 4 years without Fault, died through overuse), With a Gaggia Baby Class Espresso machine. Machine 1 arrived, I followed the instructions to the letter turned on the machine to flush it through and had water coming through every part of the machine except where it was supposed to. One very wet kitchen work top, one very unhappy customer. This machine was returned and replaced with a second machine. Machine 2; This was plugged in and used, all seemed OK until I tuned on the steam wand, this promptly parted company with the machine and squirted scalding hat water around the kitchen. Upon investigating the cause of this I also noted 3 dents to the stainless steel back plate on the machine, This machine was promptly returned and a replacement ordered. Machine 3; exactly the same problem as machine 1. This machine has been returned and a full refund requested.
I Have now oredered another Delonghi.
I have been extremely disappointed with the build quality of these machines as they are perceived to be quality item with built in longevity.
If you buy one I hope you have more luck than I have had.
People are asking me to give more information!!!!!! . What more can I say, I my experience I have had three machines, NONE of which work and with one I was lucky not to scald myself. Put yourself in my shoes. The machines looks good, but have extremely poor quality control!!
