Great looking machine which makes great tasting coffee with one caveat. The milk dispenser/frother, the temperature of the milk dispensed is cool enough for a baby to drink, this means every time i make a latte or cappuccino i have to microwave it for 30 sec in a 1000w microwave to get it to a decent heat. This is a well known problem with this machine and looses a star from me because of it.

I bought this machine and returned next day. Great service, used pre paid sticker and company collectedsize of it is hugethe tray is flimsy and difficult to put a glass in little square even when tray is lifted. Bought upgraded model prima donna xs 36.

  • Excellent machine – BUT beware of display issues!
  • Getting the most from the PrimaDonna 6600.
  • Marvellous machine – when it works

I’ve had this for nearly 2 years now and its is used by myself, my wife and my son. We probably drink a total of 10-12 cups per day. I tried a few different kinds of beans but in the end i settled on sainsbury’s continental roast and use the mild taste setting as recommended by some guy on here who gave a very comprehensive explanation of which settings are best to use. Its starting to make a strange noise just before the grinder starts but still works fine and doesn’t sound too serious. I e-mailed de’longhi and they offered to listen to the noise over the phone – i haven’t got round to doing this yet as i am not too worried. I follow the cleaning and descaling instructions supplied and use the de’longhi descaler available on amazon. Update – had for nearly 3 years now and it now displays ‘general alarm’ – have cleaned it as recommended and checked heating coils – they seem ok – may be mechanical fault – apparently will cost between £50 and £150-00 to repair at de-longhi – they are due to collect on monday – will update when returned. Update – turned out to be a thermal fuse failure – cost £100-00 including send and return. I mentioned the graunching noise and they said it could be the grease in the infuser having dried out.

Bought for hubby’s christmas and we are delighted with it. Will save fortune on costa coffees and is more than worth the cost- recommend you buy one now.

This is a really, really good machine. Looks good, coffee’s great and every use is a little bit of theatre.

Lovely coffee at the touch of a button. The de’longhi 6620 produces a perfect cappuccino at the touch of a button, as well as good espresso or plain filter coffee. It is possible to adjust many aspects of coffee production to your own requirements, such as the strength of the coffee, temperature and volume dispensed. The quality of coffee produced is consistently good and, as long as you follow a good maintenance regime (regular cleaning and descaling) there is no deterioration in taste over time. I previously owned the earlier model of this machine, the 6600 so knew how good a cup of coffee could be produced. When it came time to buy a new machine, i had no hesitation choosing another de’longhi. I first decided to buy a bean to cup coffee machine after spending two years working through nespresso machines and finding four different models wanting in various ways (the most significant was that their life expectancy was, according to nespresso, only about two years). We also tried a couple of bean to cup machines that similarly disappointed before finding the de’longhi whilst browsing in the high street. The 6600 was fantastic by comparison to all of the others we had used and lasted five years (it was repaired three times in the last two years) before we decided to get this newer model 6620 and retired the original. Setting up was slightly disconcerting as the manual suggested there should be an on/off switch on the rear of the machine.

At last barista quality coffee at home. . Have had many machines, gaggia, simonelli & rancillio, never really happy with any of them. The de’longhi prima donna truly makes a variety of coffees to perfection & even cleans itself.

Great machine but keep the packaging. I have owned one of these machines for 5 years and it eventually needed repair. De longhi’s repair service was very impressive. Three price bands for overhaul £50, £100, and £150 including collection and delivery from home address. Apparently o rings were worn. This machine has prepared excellent coffee and looked good for 5 years. It is now performing as good as new. Reviews of other manufacturers do not suggest they have the same commitment to maintain the machine. The only downside is the customer is responsible for packaging. It is very heavy with delicate parts. I wish i had put the packing in the loft and not in the bin.

First views on new purchase. Received this yesterday and set up today, so this review may well be added to in the future but for first impressions. Pro’snice looking machine, not as bulky as expected and looks good on the worktop (should do at the price)easy to set upyou’re making your first coffees within minutes. Compresses the coffee dregs into dry little circular blocksmilk jug stores easily in side of fridge. Ideally uses skimmed or semi skimmed milk which is a bonus (bought 4 litres of whole milk expecting that to be best but not recommended in the book and we’re watching the weight a bit). Have tried the cappuccino and lattes, taste is good but yet to set amount as the cappuccinos do not fill our large derby mugs. It does make hot milk with 3 levels of froth. Latte, macchiato and cappuccino, so this could be used for hot chocolates and mocha drinks. It also does just hot water for tea, but for tea personally, i would still boil the kettle. Consthe cappuccino was not quite as hot as i would have liked even with the water heat setting on high, though it could have been due to the milk cooling it a little, will update after trying an espresso.

I have used this machine for about 6 months and have found it excellent in every way. It makes excellent cappuccinos and cafe lattes for my guests and if has made a fewl hundred americanos for me. Fully programmable and temperature adjustable. I cannot recommend this product highly enough for use, results and price.

Had a previous one for several years but it finally broke down. After reading the very in depth write up on here i decided to get another one and it’s even better. The tremendous write up by mr mcgarry has also educated me to making better espresso.

Marvellous machine – when it works. I purchased this having seen my daughter’s similar machine (which she likes very much), and having researched thoroughly on amazon and elsewhere. Since receiving it i have been hugely impressed with the drinks it makes. What it does is detailed elsewhere, so i won’t regurgitate unnecessarily.Suffice to say, if you like coffee in various guises, you’ll appreciate how capable the prima donna is. . This is an expensive addition to any kitchen, and for this sort of money i would expect more reliability than so far encountered. The first one lasted nearly 3 months before the milk dispensing function failed. Delonghi sent replacement parts promptly (only praise for their customer service) but several suggestions/replacement bits failed to solve the problem. Amazon were superb with their replacement service and the new machine functioned correctly for about 5 months.

This was purchased as a gift for which i am very grateful but it uses a huge amount of coffee beans. It is well made and works efficiently but would benefit from more logical controls.

Excellent idea and product for a wedding present. Wedding presents aren’t the easiest of things to purchase. However, this product fitted the bill exactly. Entertaining or just a one off coffee, this machine does it all.

Firstly amazon have provided faultless customer service. We have had the same fault with three machines this year and found delonghi not particularly helpful. We crossed our fingers and amazon provided a fourth replacement.
