Why Plastic Fantastic
We tend to refer to semi-automatic coffee machines in two loose categories Metal or Plastic! Unfortunately the Plastic types of machines earned the diminutive moniker “Plastic Fantastic”
There is always a compromise. The more capable a machine for a better price generally means cheaper parts.
Easy To Use
For sure, the more the machine does the work, the easier they are to use.
Parts through the official supply chain can be slow and unwieldy.
More To Go Wrong!
Feature rich means more devices, parts etc to go wrong. The more to go wrong the greater the cost to diagnose
Rarely Just 1 Problem
The first time we see these machines it is rare that they present with one simple repair.
Why Mention All This
We are happy to fix these machines, but by and large don’t recommend them for a long life option.
Often the first time we see these machine is due to leaks
Water leaks often cause flow on problems. Apart from seals needing to be changed, often electronics are damaged and need consideration.
