“Expected more from a John Lewis product”

Written on: 03/02/2013

Design wise it looks nice and the stainless steel jug fitted with the rest of our appliances in our kitchen.

That said, it does have some serious design flaws.

No hot plate means the first cup is hot, but subsequent cups we had to microwave to get to a hot temperature.Difficult to use the jug to fill the machine as the lid doesn't open enough, also the lid will leak any residual water when you open it to fill it. The jug itself has annoying habit of leaking water out of the machine you're trying to fill the machine from the jug. Finally, if you don't get the jug back into the machine, just right it leaks the brewed coffee onto your work top. This was especially annoying when it did this once with the white vinegar water solution used to clean it,

Having read a few other reviews, we never had a problem with a plastic taste and makes nice coffee, just a shame about all the other usage problems we experienced with it.

Rubbish this coffee machine if you follow the instructions and warm the jug with hot water provides hot coffee for a good three hours after first brewing. The only comment I would make is that it has been difficult to get new filters when required. There is no problem opening the top provided there are no obstructions in the way like the bottom of the wall cupboard.

We had a temporary issue with leakage but once cleaned thoroughly there problem didn't exist. We found that running hot water through the filter lid made a difference as the grains of coffee didn't get a chance to solidify and block the flow then.

I would give it 9/10 for service
