    “Poor quality expensive product”

    Written on: 20/12/2012

    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 Full Review

    Written on: 13/11/2010

    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.

    Written on: 30/09/2010

    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 a… Read Full Review

    Written on: 09/10/2008 by Tonymount (1 review written)

    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 Full Review

    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 Full Review

    Piero's Response to 40482_vitali.'s Review

    Written on: 18/02/2004

    This is the 2nd time in a year that I've had to return the Baby for repair to the switches. The steam is also inadequate and I'm really disappointed. I think Gaggia is overrated (and overpriced) outside Italy (They hardly use them there). I also think its boiler is aluminium rather than stainless steel (anyone for Alzheimer's?), but I can't tell unless I dismantle it. I'm changing to a Saeco Magic Capp as it seems to offer a far better cappuccino.
