So far so good, i use my original brass basket holder( not. Replaced my mark 1 classic ( solenoid valve model) with this new model. So far so good, i use my original brass basket holder( not into this new cream filter nonsense). Works well, but drips a tiny bit every now and then due to lack of solenoid valve. Can’t understand the negative reviews. For £250 or thereabouts it’s great.
I bought the gaggia classic 2015 model about 9 months ago (approx. 2016) and it was working well initially. Making good coffee and froth. Then about 4 months later the machine began dripping around the portafilter when it was brewing coffee. I got in touch with the supplier and sent them pictures. They were quick to respond but i was going to have to send the machine off to be fixed. As i could not be bothered to do that i took the whole machine apart to find the leak. It was the connection between the water pump hose and the boiler.

I did have an older machine for approx 10 years and it was brilliant but i did have to do various strip downs. I have to disagree with other reviewers, i did have an older machine for approx 10 years and it was brilliant but i did have to do various strip downs to replace the rubber gasket mainly and its main downside was that the boiler was made of aluminium which had corroded quite badly which is why i replaced it, aluminium dissolved in the water is not good for your health. The new 2015 machine (mine came from italy with a stainless spout) has a stainless steel boiler which is a big improvement and switch’s off after 5 mins which stops overheating and still makes great coffee. I have had it now for approx 18 months with no problems, brilliant machine don’t be put off by the negative reviews.
Good while it lasted but seems it is made cheaply now. This was great while it lasted. Developed a problem where water would leak out by the portafilter. I found some tutorial videos on how to change the gasket seal so bought a replacement. Was disappointed to discover that this is a new model and cannot be serviced yourself the same as the older one could be.
New one over a month now and am well pleased with it. No experience with the pre 2015 model but have the new one over a month now and am well pleased with it. . Apparently gaggia uk said that this has been ‘road tested’ for about 6 months prior to release and pro. Makes great coffee at the end of the day. I bought mine from coffee italia and it was shipped directly from factory. . My first espresso machine.
Gaggia Classic RI9403/11 Coffee machine new model 2015 : A great machine for coffee enthusiast on a budget. . I recently bought this gaggia for my daughter. I have used a classic for over 10 years and it is still going strong. It makes great coffee for up to 3 or 4 people, if there are more than that wanting coffee it is on the slow side so not the best. The classic froths milk really well (we use skimmed milk). The classic is easy to top up with water, has a large coffee holder and although there are some differences in the current model from the one i bought years ago it still makes great coffee and is not too expensive to buy. A great machine for coffee enthusiast on a budget.
