Makes a great cup of coffee but the steam unit has failed on a regular basis since purchase. Everything else works fine. Spent £180 less than six months ago and back to square one. The auto concept is great but they are high maintenance. I would forgive that if it was reliable. Delighted we kept the old filter machine which is now pressed back into service. I normally check reviews before I buy. I didn't this time and regret it. Problem is , how do you go back to so so coffee??? (read more)

Bought this coffee machine over a year ago, it was fine to start with but then electrical problems started, we sent it back to (then) Gaggia at £100+vat, it took over a month for it to be returned with even more problems, on phoning them advised to send it back AND PAY AGAIN! Have given up with it now and certainly would not recommend it to anyone....stay clear of Gaggia. (read more)

I called Phillips who now manage the servicing for Gaggia. They want to charge £125 to collect the unit, service it and repair one part. Any more than that will incur extra cost. I can get my £23,000 car serviced for that price so I... (read more)

Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine is ok when working. Mine has been back 3 times for repairs. Gaggia uk are frustrating as they always try to charge when machine fails even if still under warranty. The girl who answers the phone at head office is laughable... totally useless. Good for a laugh though. Told me not to let my children touch any buttons once! Asked 6 months ago if i could get it serviced, she said NO too busy sorry. "OK can i book it in then i said. No sorry it will be ages. Great... (read more)
