After moving home a few years ago I decided to treat myself to a new espresso machine, and I was and still am so impressed with the De'Longhi EDG455.B! It has everything you could ask for, with an attractive exterior which is easily accessible to clean (although it rarely needs cleaning), a complication free interior function and is very techno and up to date with the times. It has a 2 year warranty and even though it's quite pricey, it's well worth it. I would recommend this to anybody!
The espresso maker has a 7 stage LED play and select system to carefully select the coffee length to recommended or to personal choice to get that perfectly tasting coffee every time.
It's easy to use, produces instant and delicious coffee and clearly shows what to press and how to work it simply by looking at the machine. But for the less technological people there is also a helpful manual instruction booklet which comes with it!
It has a Thermoblock heating system which works very well to ensure no time consuming preheating is required, whilst maintaining an energy efficiency. The heating system has a useful maximum 15 bar pump pressure.
The machine always arrives well packaged, with it itself, a set of instructions and a prefitted UK plug.
The machine will need to be descaled every three to four months or every 900 uses to keep it working at it's best but otherwise it's low maintenance and easily kept and used.
