Many buyers of this product
are more than happy, "Had this for a short while, works well. The
priming function that another reviewer complained about, really is
simple. Lets take it step by step: Fill tank if required, switch on
(green light flashing, put cup under milk frothier, turn upper knob
anti-clock wise until water comes out of tube (about a second or
two!) turn knob back to mid position. open chrome cover, place pod
inside, close cover, wait for green light to stop flashing (probably
has by now), place cup under nozzle, rotate upper knob clockwise
until the required quantity dispensed, or leave on until it switches
off. Job done, easy.
To be fair the instructions are
not as clear as they could but once you do it once, it is very simple.
As for water in the used capsule bin, yes that happens, but
remember the used pods have had water passed through them and
they now have an entry hole through the top and an exit hole
through the bottom! Water/coffee residue will come out". Just like
many other coffee machines, this fantastic device can be bought
online or on the high street.
