January 23, 2014What a huge disappointment
"We really wanted to like this machine. We've owned many coffee machines over time and were eager to own one with a grinder. We've just threw in the towel on our second version of this machine. Both machines worked fine for the fist month. After that, they were totally unreliable and offered nothing but problems and bad coffee brewing The biggest problem we've had (of many) is that the water gauge ceases to work. After numerous fruitless attempts with customer service and reading other people's experiences, we've had to reluctantly abandon this machines. They look good and have nice displays, but if you want a cup of coffee from them, there's a very good chance they can't deliver. "
January 5, 2014Love this coffe maker!
"I purchased this coffee maker after owning several of the competitive grind and brew machines. Obviously, those writing negative reviews about this coffee maker never owned the competitor. This machine is absolutely fabulous! I have owned it now for over 6 months without any problems.
The coffee comes out fantastic each and every time whether you are grinding the beans, using ground coffee, making a whole pot or just a to-go mug amount. The ability to adjust the strength is great when the beans you bought just aren't up to the taste buds of those who like their coffee with flavor.
My pot goes off every morning at 5:30 flawlessly without any intervention from me. My only mistake is occasionally forgetting to refill the bean hopper! For those negative reviewers, go buy a similar Cuisinart machine and see how poorly it compares, and the hoops you need to go through to clean the thing and the almost daily battles with the coffee chute! You need to unclog the Cuisinart after every use!!!
The only thing that kept me from buying this machine sooner was the price. I will have to say it was worth every penny. My family teases me about the money I spent on this coffee maker, but I do not regret the purchase at all."

"Although I only have this machine a few days so far so go...I had the cusinart with the grinder and brought back 4 of them in 2 years, its the same old deal, after a while the water pump does not pump all the water into the machine, so i have to hit it 2 or 3 times...I am having one problem setting up the timer, tried it once and it didnt work...guess i will read the book... There are very few machines with a built in grinder....I will see how this works...."
November 4, 2013Excellent and Aggrivating
"This coffee maker does an amazing job of making a really good cup of coffee. While it works. You can customize the settings to make it as strong or as lite as you would like with either a full carafe or a single cup. That part is great! It also looks amazing on your counter.
Although, We are on our second one of these and we are having the same problem as before. After a few months the coffee maker has trouble getting all of the water out of the tank and takes up to an HOUR to fully brew the coffee. What happens then is the coffee that sits in the carafe gets overheated and burned. I was hoping that the first time was an isolated incident but after reading the other reviews and having my second one do the same thing, its time for Breville to go back to the drawing board. We had a Kitchen Aid that worked perfectly for several years with coffee being made every morning. "
August 17, 2013Great looking coffee maker, however...
"I do love this coffee maker for it's looks, I've always thought Breville made great products. But after using this coffee maker for less than a year I'm changing my mind. As of yesterday this coffee maker of not working at all. I never dropped it nor hit it. I used it with care, just plain normal use. It stopped working, I will post an update when I contact and receive an answer from Breville. Hopefully I get a better answer than Bose corporation. Stay tuned..."
July 23, 2013Cannot recommend
"I love the idea of this coffee maker and it does make a great cup of coffee when it works.
I am currently on my third coffee maker due to the machine not recognizing the water that has been added. The previous two machines worked for a few months before they stopped registering the water. I always followed the instructions and put cool, filtered water in the machine.
Breville support has been helpful, but I shouldn't have to go through this much effort just to make a cup of coffee every day. If the issue remains with this third machine, I might just go back to my $15 coffee maker that I've had for years."
May 5, 2013Good until.....
"We loved this coffee maker was great cup of coffee and was freshly ground every morning. Then about a month ago the digital display does not register the full 12 cup of water with in the water tank. The coffee maker is less then 6 months old. The flag pops up and says full. So when you go to brew coffee the grinder only grinds enough for the displayed amount even though the tank is full. So as you can imagine the coffee if like brown water. I have tried to cleaning and even tried to get help from company only to get no where.
So I would not recommend this coffee maker on grounds that the company does not support their product."
April 25, 2013but a problem
"I was washing the caraf and the glass lip around the top just broke off.
It left very even jagged edges that look like waves. I am so disappointed.
I used it this morning just hoping it doesn't break further since I can't find a replacement on the web site.............."out of stock"
I really like this coffee maker and the coffee is amazing. If someone with the company actually monitors these reviews maybe they can help me find a replacement caraf."
December 30, 2012Best coffee maker on the market
"Exellent technical design. Allows you to explore all options for the best coffee taste. Thinks for you. Coffee maker is pleasing to the eyes. Easy to clean and recharge. Water fill is in front. Bean hopper in back and accessible "
November 23, 2012could use a little help
"I Bought the BDC550XL coffee makers two days ago because my husband loves good coffee.
This is my problem: I am having some difficulty with getting a cup of coffee that he believes is that awesome taste, it's, either two strong even on the mild or it's tasteless with the already ground coffee setting.
Also the gold filter seems way to full of grinds when I fill the hopper with beans even on the mild setting.
I love the fact that it grinds the beans and the coffee maker is so great looking that I really do not plan on returning it. I have read the instruction booklet twice cover to cover, also read the troubleshooting tips. So I am planning on working really hard to make this a good investment of my money.
