It wouldn't let me post this without giving it a star rating, so it has one star BUT in reality I would give it MINUS 1 Star
I got my Elgento 2 Cup Coffee Maker via the Daily Mail rewards points.
Considering that you can buy it for less than £25, I knew that it wasn't going to be much good. And when you take it out of the box, you're not disappoint, because it is Cheap, Nasty and Chinese.
My FIRST mistake was thinking that it would make a cup of coffee.
You have to run the first cycle without coffee to remove any manufacturing residue. So I filled it up and turned it on. Within seconds hot water was dripping through the coffee nozzles, but after about 40 seconds it stopped boiling. About THREE minutes later it started boiling again, and for a few seconds, water dripped from the coffee nozzles, before it turned itself OFF again. Not certain how many times it did this, but after about 30 MINUTES the two small coffee cups were each about half full. So it's going to take about an hour to make 2 mouthfulls of coffee.
So don't waste your money on this rubbish.
Council Recycling lorry is in the street, what perfect timing.
