De’Longhi Front Loading Filter Coffee Maker 10-15 Cup Capacity Digital – A very good buy in coffee machines.

I don’t have to get up in the early hours of morning with sleepy eyes to make coffee. The machines timer does that for me. One for me and one for a friend. It was also £17 cheaper (each) on amazon compared to high street prices.

My first ever coffee maker and i’m really pleased with it. I must add that mine wasn’t purchased through amazon. My partner and i had ours as a gift for christmas and think it was our best giftwe have been using around 3 times daily since then and have experienced no problem with it whatsoever. The green light that ‘flashes’ constantly is there as a reminder to de scale it and can be reset once this has been done. I love how you can prepare it a night on the timer function and come downstairs to freshly brewed coffee in the morning. It has a 40 minute timer to keep the coffee warm and i have just discovered that if this isn’t long enough you can press the on button again and it will continue to keep the hot plate warm. Just thought i would let all fellow coffee lovers know that it’s a great product.

Good but when closing filter compartment some times filters are pushed down creating a mess.

  • Great front loading feature
  • A very good buy in coffee machines.
  • Four Stars

Great coffee maker and the front load feature saves pulling it out from under the wall cupboards. Heater plate turns off after only 40 mins though (probably another useless eu directive) so we keep turning it back on, the last one was 2 hours and much more useful in that respect.

Very pleased with coffee machine perfect in every way turns itself off big plus excellent buy like the paper filters.

  1. 1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
    Really not pleased with this product at all. Great that it fills from the front – but find that if you make more than 4-6 cups as a time the water backs up, and the coffee grinds end up overflowing into the water container and worse yet into the coffee itself. I’ve tried 2-3 different brands of filters including the one’s sent with the machine – same problem every time. Surprised at overall quality as typically delonghi appliances are top of the line.

    This machine is terrible, the design is so poor, for instance :- it cannot be filled without water being spewed ever where. – it will not keep the coffee hot for any period of time. – it does not have the capacity of the machine it replaces. – it wants to go through through a descaling cycle after half a dozen cycles. In an area where our kettle has no scale after 5 years, it’s a farce. Don’t bother it will just frustrate you.

      1. 1.0 out of 5 stars POTENTIALLY VERY DANGEROUS
        Purchased the delonghi icm15250 filter coffee maker at the end of april. Within the first week of receiving the coffee maker and using it just once a day, the plastic handle on the jug became loose, and was only attached at the front end where the pouring spout is. I called delonghi and explained about the problem, seemed very helpful and said they would replace the jug, and to bin the old one. That was on the 7thy may and am still awaiting delivery of the new jug. After reading the other review it seems that i am not the only one to have this problem. I also note that searches on google for this coffee maker, return very few retailers selling it – other than amazon, i wonder why ???. I though perhaps i was the unlucky one to receive a defect one off unit – seems not. I believe this could be a manufacturing faulty which could be dangerous if the the handle were to come off whilst the jug was full of hot coffee – could result in serious burns .

      I ordered and received this machine in march and at first everything was hunky dory. My previous delonghi coffee machine, which i’d bought about 3/4 years earlier for just over £20, had finally given up the ghost. This was a much more expensive model but frankly didn’t do anything better than my previous model but was ok. So just over amazon’s 30 day replacement period. The green light on the aroma button, which is only supposed to light when the button is pressed to infuse the room with the nice smell of perculating coffee, started flashing constantly. The only time it stopped is when the machine was actually making coffee or we unplugged it. If it had happened within 30 days we’d have sent it back to amazon. As it didn’t, although a bit of a pain, maybe it wasn’t worth going to the trouble of contacting the manufacturer etc. Then the lid/handle of the jug started to loosen and came off just after i’d filled it with cold water to pour into the machine, flooding our kitchen work surface. It could have contained hot coffee and smashed. So now, after just over a month, i’m going through the palaver of contacting amazon, the manufacturer, sending it back etc. To be fair, maybe i was just unlucky and my machine was a dud, but unless i have to i won’t be asking for a replacement and my trust in this brand/model has been irretrievably tarnished. To summarise, based on my experience, i would not recommend this machine.
