This is a really good coffee machine especially for its price!
I bought this coffee machine around three months ago in Wilkinson and snapped it up at only £7-50!!! I thought it was a mistake on the shelf's label but no sure enough when I got to the till, it came up with the same price, £7-50!
Obviously at £7-50 it hasn't got any really extravagant functions, no LCD displays or anything that but it make coffee and thats all I wanted really. It also, fits in really well with my other kitchen appliances and my preference of Black and Silver style, It looks very modern and is very easy to use.
However, when i purchased my coffee machine, the glass jug had a small air bubble in the bottom of the glass, I maybe should have taken it back but I was too eager to test it out and decided it would be fine so I didnt bother. A few weeks ago once it had finished making the coffee, I poured a cup and I immediately filled it with cold tap water and it cracked along the bottom, i'm not sure if it was something to do with the air bubble causing it to be a little weak or if it was just weak glass and the sudden change of temperature caused it to crack. Anyway, I contacted Sabichi askin where i could buy a replacement jug from and they replied sayin they could send me one for around £12!!! I replied explaining i bought the whole machine for less than that, so now I am just waiting for my next trip to wilkinsons! Definitely worth the money!- (even though it cracked but it was probably my fault!)
The coffee machine has a 'keep warm' plate which works quite well but doesn't keep it steaming hot, but hot enough to drink.
It has an easy to clean 'filter holder' which is removable. It has a water measuring gage n the front which goes up to 10 but this must be small coffee cups as I fill it up to 4 for 2 cups of coffee. The on/off switch lights up when pressed which is good as you know if its turned on or not very easily. It also states it has a non- drip function but it does still drip but just a little bit!
Overall, for £7-50 the coffee machine is well worth the money but it hasnt got lots of special features, if you are wanting a basic coffee machine which makes nice coffee, I would reccommend this but if you are after a swanky machine this isn't the one for you.
* I thought i'd add, i've just been back to Wilkinsons to buy this machine again and its still the same price, i've checked and this one hasn't got any air bubbles in it, thankfully. I'm keeping it as part of my partner's christmas presents as he was more gutted about the last one smashing than me! *
