2.0 out of 5 stars Coffee holding part so tight, couldn't use it., 17 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Delonghi EC152 Pump Espresso Coffee Machine (Kitchen & Home)
Tried one of these after my old model (a good 10 years old) stopped working. The part that you put the coffee in has been altered, and I couldn't get the handle to lock into place without physically holding down the machine at the back, and wrestling the pod (the black handled saucepan-like part that holds the coffee grounds in place for making the coffee) into place. Husband tried the thing, and he couldn't manage either. When we invited the lady who actioned the refund to try it herself, she declined ;)

No idea what Delonghi have done to this, or whether we just had a duff machine, but it looks as though I won't be getting another machine, because they all seem to have the same design.

This machine is not made for pods, obviously.

I was referring to the tiny pan that one is supposed to put one's ground coffee into. You put a measure of coffee into a tiny metal dish, and that goes into the pan/pod, which you then lock into place on the coffee machine. Perhaps you know the official name for this pan, but I don't.

It's just called, "the group".
