3 years and over 5000 beverages
This has been a great machine, it was a replacement for another saeco that gave up after 27,000 beverages ( Royal Digital) Love those built in counters. The machine is easy to clean and use. It does a rinse when you start it up and another when it shuts itself off, if you shut the power off enstead of letting it shut down on its own it's going to perform the shutdown rinse when you turn the machine back on, then it'll do the startup rinse. If your only making a few beverages a day, then the rinse tray is going to fill before puck bin, which means they'll both need to be dumped, takes about a minute, no big deal. It's been a trouble free machine that's been making us great beverages for the past 3 years.

Good Product. Well designed. Simple to use. Frustrating
This product provided great tasting coffee and espresso. Having said that we had to go through two units and gave up after the second one as both constantly had water priming issues. The unit would have a cyclical pattern of priming and rinsing every morning where you would have to physically end the cycle by pressing the OK button. It also output random volumes of coffee (read watered down or concentrated).

Lucky I bought it at COSTCO
Originally purchased as a gift. Seemed to work fine the first few months. Then the gremlins got into the system. The machine started making us clean the coffee grinds after every 3 or 4th cup. Then it didn't recognize the Milk carafe. Then not able to make a Latte. Now it is basically a $20.00 coffee brewer. And guess what....over a yr old No warranty!! So, back to Costco it went.
