This is my second Gaggia machine. The first (Gaggia Classic) lasted over 6 years, the new Baby Gaggia didn't last a year. Poor quality product throughout. Coffee never seems hot. Constantly leaking water and now machine is so hot I can't turn the handle to steam milk. Does this have anything to do with Phillips taking over Gaggia and the product being downgraded. At a little under £200 I was expecting far more. The customer service desk was helpful to a point but as its now out of guarantee... (read more)

I've had the Baby 'Doser' class now for over 3 years. Not a single problem with is since I bought it online.
Great coffee**, it looks great and has given me no trouble.
**If you use good quality coffee - I use Lavazza Grand Espresso beans - with a appropriate grind size. If you're getting your own grinder expect to spend over £100 to get a good, consistent grind - otherwise, stick to pre-ground coffee.

After a great deal of research and looking into a variety of makes, we opted for the Baby Gaggia - not the cheapest by some way but hughly recommended by an assistant who helped us in a John Lewis store. She also suggested we buy Illy coffee which we did from our local Sainsburys.
The machine wasn't too difficult to use but spurts out coffee whilst it is pouring down into the cups. We have returned one machine so far and am going back to John Lewis today to return for a 2nd time and to get... (read more)

After just ten months of use, my machine ( Gaggia Baby Class ) has appeared to have died. Upon contacting Gaggia for advice I was told to take various parts off. Having complied, I was surprised to find large amounts of gunge that were very difficult to remove and this in spite of regular descaling. My machine is still non-functioning and I shall not be purchasing another by this manufacturer (read more)

I have had to return my Gaggia Baby twice in the first year for repair to switches (on/off and steam), which began by arcing and finally stopped working. The machine is ok for espresso, but poor for cappuccino. (read more)

The Gaggia Baby is a good looking, sturdy and versatile espresso machine which gives good pump pressure, holds a lot of water, and gets up to temperature fast. (read more)
