I also own the Magnifica machine which is at the other end DeLonghi's bean-to-cup range.
Looks-wise, if the Magnifica is a Cyber-Man then this Eletta is definitely Darth Vader.
The Eletta is a fraction slimmer but sticks out more at the front.
It can take much taller mugs for both coffee and foam at 14.5 cm vs. 11cm for the Magnifica.
The housings are both in plastic but the Eletta has a stainless steel drip tray vs the Magnifica's plastic one.
The bean hopper is at the back on the Eletta which is less ergonomic imo as it's harder to fill/monitor.
I've upped a couple of photo's, I hope you find them useful.
The main differences are that the Eletta is more computerised with an LED display and has its own milk-frother system.
The frothing system works very well; it delivers a consistent, lasting, tight foam from a cold milk reservoir which can be kept in the fridge between uses. However, a skilled barista would likely get a better foam with a traditional system, and the foam on the Eletta only comes out warm, not hot. The machine rinses the frother after use and the only cleaning required is to wipe the nozzle where the frother attaches to the machine. I've included close-up pics of the nozzle.
The Eletta will make a long coffee made-up of 2 separate doses of coffee, grinding and reloading half way through. This comes out far too strong for me but may suit others.
I did notice that this Eletta can grind finer than the Magnifica I have, not that I need it that fine (only produces drips of coffee).
Not sure if this is consistent machine-to machine of the same model but it is apparent with the ones I have.
Neither machine allows you to grind and store the ground coffee, which is a shame. -I'd like a divert flap to allow you to collect your favourite blend for holidays/friends/relatives.
Whether the Eletta machine is for you/worth the extra depends on how important these features are.
My first impressions are that you're paying for and getting an effective and convenient frothing system plus some programmability. I'm still working my way through the manual as there is quite a lot to learn and several customisable options. Water temp is adjustable by 4 pre-set levels, the default being 2 (halfway). I know HOT coffee is important to some.
I use double-walled glass mugs which make temperature less critical as they don't cool the contents half as much.
One menu option, 'Statistics' includes data on descaling and water filter replacement. I would be suspicious that DeLonghi might use this to invalidate any guarantee. I only say this as when my Magnifica packed-up within weeks of receipt, Delonghi's first response was for assurance that I had descaled it and used it in accordance with the instructions. I elected to instead use Amazon's own return service and received a replacement before even returning the dud unit. -No questons asked.
I shall not be replacing the (supplied) water filter every 2 months at £8- a pop as advised. But I will be descaling regularly as one should with any coffee machine. Delonghi really would be being churlish if they didn't honour a guarantee due to irregular filter use alone.
My Magnifica makes just as good a coffee (as far as I can tell) but I rarely froth milk with it -partly because I'm no good at it.
This Eletta really does seem to provide a quality cappuccino.. without the need for a professional!
But despite the minimal cleaning required, I must admit I still only use the frother at weekends.
I was looking at buying a coffee machine for some time prior to purchasing this but didn't think I could afford a De'Longhi machine, however I managed to pick this one up in the Amazon Prime Day sale.
The machine itself is quite large for a small kitchen, but looks great and the coffees it produces are fantastic whether it is espressos, black coffees or the several varieties of white coffees it is able to produce. The ability to alter the size, strength and temperature of your coffee means you can tailor it to your own personal preference very easily, and by adjusting the setting on the milk carafe you can differentiate between lattes, cappuccinos, flat whites etc perfectly.
From my research in to other machines, I believe some of them can be relatively laborious to maintain and clean but this one is a doddle. Each time the machine is turned on or off it rinses itself, and the milk carafe has its own self clean function and can be stored in the fridge between uses which saves on cleaning. The screen alerts you every time you need to empty, fill up or replace something and because of the big water tank this doesn't occur that regularly that it becomes a chore.
Overall I couldn't be happier with this coffee machine, and although I probably wouldn't have originally bought it if it hadn't been in the sale, I can now see how it justifies its price over the other machines that I was looking at, and believe that it is well worth it. In the long run I'm sure it will probably save me money from all of the Starbucks, Costa and Cafe Nero I'm no longer buying, and personally I think it produces far superiour coffee to any of those chains!
I took the plunge and decided to buy a new machine It arrived quickly was well packaged and all parts were there. After unboxing and setting it up
My initial thoughts it looks way better and more modern than my old machine. I fiddled about with it got the water hardness set up the water temperature set. Now the recommendation is to make 4 or 5 cups of coffee to get it run in. i used this to set the grinder to my liking and also MY coffee set up.
I drink black coffee and the Machine is excellent it has plenty of customisable features for strength and volume. The coffee has a nice rich crema on top and looks fabulous. and to cap it off it will switch itself on in the morning if you set it to do so
I have read that people find the milk coffees too cold I had the same problem with my old machine. This can be made better buy a few steps
put some boiling water in the cup to heat it then discard the water before making your milk coffee.
The carafe for milk has a clean setting on it turn it to clean a cycle it a couple of times this puts hot water through it and heats the system. I found that by doing that there wasn't an issue with anything being cold. You can use a combination of both steps or just use which ever one you prefer
If you just want to add milk to your coffee and take it straight from the fridge it will cool the coffee too much. You can add hot milk to the coffee by using the Milk menu function which will dispense hot milk and wont cool the coffee.
Over all I'm delighted with it
