I have always bought Gaggia coffee machines believing them to be market leaders in producing fine coffee. This machine is easy to use and equally easy to clean. The coffee perfect, just what you would expect from a high quality serious coffee drinkers machine. The handle did crack after a while but I ordered a replacement via Gaggia's website. The website has all parts and the ordering and delivery quick and efficient.
After having gone through 3 of these Gaggia machines in 5 years I have now decided to try another brand. Although the coffee is delicious and the machine very easy to use. I have been put off by reoccurring problems. The first and second machines that I had died on me after the pumps failed. The third machine that I bought was replaced under the warranty because the heating element broke, 18 months later the same fault occurred.
I may just have been unlucky but at the prices Gaggia charge for their coffee makers I will not be buying from them again.
