I had a gagia baby machine which broke after 14 months. This was a cheaper replacement and has lasted far longer than i’d ever have expected. I think 6 years is pretty good. I regularly descale it and it’s been sent away for servicing once only. I love a good cup of coffee so first and foremost – it makes excellent espresso. So i’m very happy with the dualit machine. Milk foams etc less good – but can make latte – capuchino is harder in my humble opinion. I have put some very pricey coffees in this machine and they have all tasted as good as can be expected i. Not as good as with a commercial grinder or machine – but not enough difference to merit splashing out a few grand on a different machine.
Very attractive and functional design. Can use ground coffee, or ese pods (bit like tea bags full of coffee), or mini pods similar to nespresso ones. I haven’t yet tried other pods but the machine comes with a pod piercer which enables you to use pods which are the same shape as designed for but not pierced so in theory pretty much all mini nespresso-type pods are useable.
Excellent product, easy to use and in constant use .
A fantastic product with all the features of a full sized machine. Makes excellent coffees after you have mastered the functions and is like having a coffee shop in your kitchen. Classic design, solid build quality and a strong pump delivery that serves a rich crema to your cup.

A very good machine easy to use.
Everything is great except the milk frother which rearlly screws up the smooth milk heating process, so i have removed the piece of rubber and uses the nozzle directly which seems to work perfectly. The coffee doesn’t get pressed through properly, which means when you remove the handle to replace, there’s always water left over, so emptying it into a disposable coffee ground bin is messy as it collects water.
I was a bit reluctant to purchase as there were a few negative reviews. I’ve now had the machine a few weeks and absolutely love it. It makes excellent coffee either when i use ground or ese pods.
I liked how easy it was to usethere are so many kinds of coffee in the shops it may take a little while to find the one you preferbut i suppose that’s part of the funsaying that a good machine.
Amazing product for a perfect cup of coffee i thoroughly recommend it.
With the aid of a metal jug and a thermometer for the milk plus a bit of practice this makes the best home brewed coffee i have tasted, good value. Dualit provide good back up service.
My old gaggia cubika finally gave up after nearly eight years of excellent service, and i struggled with what i would buy as a replacement. The dualit machines have good write-ups, and i took the decision to replace with the dualit 84440. The 3-1 functionality is great, and the machine produces an excellent expresso. Am hoping that it will serve me as long as the trusty gaggia – and on first impressions – it looks well made and robust.
Very versatile coffee maker at a great price.
I have had a dualit toaster for at least 15 years. Very well made, used daily and only twice since new had to change an element. Fantasticso, i thought i would buy a dualit coffee maker expecting the same quality. It is well made and does make extremely tasty coffee ( i grind illy beans) but there are some issues with it. They don’t mention when you buy it that it’s highly recommended to always use a paper filter in the ground coffee cup. Only when you read the instructions in the box do they mention the filters. If you don’t use them then overtime fine particles of coffee will clog up the holders and you will need to replace them. These cups are a double floor stainless filter that can’t be cleaned successfullyyes i started using the filters but they only supplied 20 with the machine. why for heavens sake not supply a pack of 250 which dualit make themselves?.By the time my box of filters arrived i had been using the machine for a week or so without.
Excellent build quality, lovely coffee, but do read the instructions first.
Fantastic, and came the next day, a sunday.
Fritter works really wel and adjustable for different types of froth. Not noisy and experiences no problems.
Excellent coffee (not used pods yet just real coffee). Once you get used to the machine and find your preferred type/strength of coffee this is excellent. Would recommend in fact parent are now buying one and ditching their coffee machine and i’m going to get another for our holiday home. Froths milk very well although we did buy a thermometer to get right temp. You can make drink after drink with this after the first 40 seconds warm up.
Another great product only downside is fitting glass mugs under dispenser. Looks stylish in the kitchen.
Simple to use dual left for coffee and right for steam. Superb results what could be better.
Exactly what we wanted as doesn’t require the use of dreadful capsules.
Makes great espresso and milk frother is easy to use.
This replaced a gaggia that had done the job for many years. Dualit is easy to use and produces hot coffee – if you pass hot water through the ‘basket’ first. Paper filters are an extra chore, but speed and consistency of delivery are excellent so far. It delivers a significant amount of coffee froth (crema) every time and the milk frother works well. I haven’t tried coffee pods yet; using whittard santos & java beans and a separate dualit grinder for excellent coffee.
