Sunbeam EM6900 Espresso Machine, Dr Coffeebean: Bottom Line: Don't waste your money, buy a more reliable machi...

We have had two Sunbeam EM6900s espresso machines in the 7 years that we have been living in Australia. Both completely broke down after a few years and were beyond repair. Our second machine recently stopped steaming properly. They are very user-friendly and their design is well thought off--however, it is the quality of their manufacture which is the main problem. The painted surfaces becoming bubbly and starting to flake off is particularly worrisome, especially from some a health perspective, as the paint dust makes its way into the water reservoir. We have contacted Sunbeam about this a few times, but their customer service department never had the courtesy to answer or address our concerns. You are better off with another machine. We are looking for a new machine, but it will not be a Sunbeam EM6900 again!
