Advantages: Makes great coffee, from espresso to mocha
Disadvantages: dribbles to a stop
Having bought this for my parents last christmas, I am certain that they woul not mind me highly recommending it infact i often hear they have told visitors to their house that it is the best present they have ever received. the machine cost £35 pound i'm pretty sure there was an offer on at thetime, can not be certain though as it was in the run up to christmas.
The reason why is that it is does exactly what it should makes great coffee, simply and quickly. the set up is similar to the more expensive or commercial machines on a smaller more compact footprint and with a sleak curvy design, which also maximises the useful space on the machine.
Water is added by opening the thermos type lid on the top of the machine and then making sure the coffee is in the filter and tightly turned in press the button to start heating up the water. this i find is very quick from two or three minutes to maybe 8 for a full load.. a full load states 10 cups.. either they are very small cups or they use very strong coffee. realistically i would say 5/6 coffees before the coffee will begin to be burnt in the filter. There is also a slider gage which alters the strength of the coffee which comes in handy.. The whole process is very non eventful an very quite until the point of the water having almost boiled when a sound not dissimilar but quieter than an electric shower can be heard..
Other features include a milk frother, which is a must for any Latte, Cappucino, frochamochashattalatte fans. Also comes with the stainless milk jug and the glass coffee pot with markers on.. A good tip is always remember how much water you put in because it will obviously come out.. the one fault with the machine is that it does leak toward the end of the cycle rather than just flow to a stop. Another problem is the white print on the outer of the casing has washed off.. not sure what it said now.
The product takes approximately the same footprint as a double toaster and sit approx 500mm it is fairly heavy would estimate at 4to 5 kg and as my parents have no problems moving it to clean underneath it may be worth remembering. All the stainless and glass is dishwasher safe however they usually just need a rinse through. the overall build quality is pretty good the outer is of a hardened plastic which apart from the lettering rubbing off has aged well.. the seals and rubbers are all in good condition and it is in general well put together.
Please be aware ive just been made aware ive made a bit of a mistake.. this reveiw is for the 47009 not 47008.. thank you nas for bringing that to my attention.
A great product just a shame none of my presents now ever match up.
