First of all, this machine is physically superior to all other super-automatic brands I checked out. The top line Jura, Saeco, and Krups are all wrapped in plastic with steel accents in front while the Delonghi is fully encased in steel. The engineering is very solid and it has a gorgeous presence in the kitchen.

If you like Cappuccino, you will love this machine and its truly one touch operation. However, you must use proper sized Cappuccino cups to get the full experience. The machine is tuned to froth the milk and add the espresso shot so that froth extends about 1/4 inch above the edge of the cup. You can change these settings, but out-of-the-box it is perfect. I have never had a better Cappuccino anywhere - even Italy. (I use Illy medium roast beans). The milk container is incredibly convenient. I have placed the machine near my fridge so I simply store the milk container in the fridge after each use. It snaps in and out of place very easily.

The espresso shots are wonderful. It is important that you take note of the grind setting when you open the box before you change it. They set the grind setting at the factory for each machine and it is unlikely that you will find a better mark. People say that super-automatics can't make a shot as good as the manual machines but think this machine defies that rule.

To really enjoy and understand this machine, you need to read the manual and take some simple extra steps before and after you use it each day. First of all, use the rinse feature often. It takes 1/2 second to push the button. If the machine has been sitting for a while, hit rinse before you use it so the infuser will heat up. After your last cup for the morning etc, hit rinse. It is a quick and simple way to keep the machine working well.

I had a Jura Capresso F9 for a year before it went bad - the company replaced it with a refurbished machine. I had upgraded to the Jura from a Saeco which was an absolute nightmare.

Ultimately I enjoyed my Jura but hated that none of the parts were user-serviceable and I had to rely onthe cleaning tablets to ensure that the machine was 'clean'.

After seeing the Delonghi in a William-Sonoma store demo I thought it was great - fully integrated single-touch operation and it was SOOOO much quieter than my Jura. I decided to upgrade.

Setup was easy and all the pre-programmed touch buttons seemed to fill to the right quantities. I was nervous after seeing a couple reviews on here complaining about the milk container, but I've not had a problem since and I use the machine 3-4 times daily without any issue.

There was another reviewer on here who made a statement I couldn't agree with more: you DO NOT purchase a fully automatic espresso machine with the idea that it eliminates cleaning or maintenance - that includes cleaning/cycling after each cup. However, this machine makes that process much easier.

The construction and parts are all solid-steel. It shocked me that my $2000 Jura had silver plastic in the front with the audacity to call it 'chrome'. Yeah, I'll call that chrome when pigs call themselves fat-free.

Anyhow, I'm quite pleased with this and would certainly recommend the product for those looking to replace or upgrade their current systems. When I have guests the machine has NO problem brewing lattes, regular cups of coffees or straight espressos - I also love that I can change the strength and taste for each individual cup; this is really ideal for multi-person use or guests and something that many other machines can't do.

I purchased this from a upscale B&M store, pretty sure it was a display as it had no packaging, manual and did not have the frothing pitcher (and no non-working dvd). No problem, went to the DeLonghi web site, ordered the pitcher assembly and downloaded the manual.

The machine makes a great coffee and espresso with a perfect crema. The ability to program the quantity brewed regardless of the selection is great. Cappucino, latte, machiatto it all works very well.

Have had similar issues of the sticking of the pitcher and the hot water attachment in it's place, but a little patience pays off well.

I also deducted a star for the limited cup height that can be placed under the dispenser. Not keen on the idea of heat loss in transferring to a travel mug for example. My solution is to preheat a two cup pyrex mesuring cup to dispense to and transfer from and that works well.

One more con is that there does seem to be an unusual amount of ground coffee (dry)towards the back of the tray that slides out, next to the used puck catch container. Maybe I am just nitpicking, but it does seem a waste.

All in all this machine makes great coffee and coffee drinks, and after three years it is going strong. I have only had to decalcify once so far. This thing has more than paid for itself. This machine would be overkill for a single person that drinks only an occasional cup, there are coffee shops for that. But for someone, a couple or family that loves coffee, this machine rocks. Plus, what better way to experiment with different coffee drinks without forking out five bucks at a Starbucks, Caribou or Dunn Bros?
