Factory Second: De'Longhi Eletta Fully Automatic Coffee Machine $799 (38% off New Price $1,299) @ DeLonghi


I was looking for a new coffee machine to replace my old pod one that broke. Did some research, and found this bargain. Works great, and looks brand new.
Only thing missing was an original manual, a water filter and water hardness strip- included was a printed one manual, and I asked, and they are posting the strip, and I bought a filter.

    I suggest you follow these instructions to find out how much coffee this thing has made. I know someone who had to return theirs, because the coffee count was much higher than supposed for a refurb unit (De'Longhi refurbs are supposed to be low usage). They got a refund, but the process was not pleasant.

      I checked that - 42 coffees made. Maybe a demo model?
      Has 1 year warranty, plus another for consumer protection.
      I'm happy with it for a fully automatic.

      • How do you check how many coffee's were made?

        • Someone has negged a valid question here…..ozbargain at it's typical

          It's under the settings once you get the machine.

        • +2

          See my link above.

      • That's how it's meant to be - low usage. But apparently De'Longhi has no real way of knowing what the usage is before they ship it out. So the onus is on the buyer to verify.

  • I paid 975 for this 2 years ago and there was a cashback offer at the time (I think it was 175 but may have been 150). It's not much more for new if you're savvy.

    • That was the cheapest by far that I found. I'd imagine the 2nd stock will run out.

    • Yes, I rang that store. They are 2nd hand machines, 2-4 years old, refurbished my the seller.

        I got mine from them for $450, then they gave me a $100 refund because they sent the wrong colour. It had made thousands of coffees, but it works fine and I'm happy with it. The only annoying thing is that it asks me to empty the grounds container much more frequently than I think it's meant to.

        • Thousands, wow. Mine 42 only. Still had plastic stuck to it, that needed peeling off.

    • And the 10% off ebay code makes it nice

      • +2

        I wouldn't buy a 2nd hand coffee machine….

        • Then why did you upvote the deal?

          edit: I see, my mistake

    Better off investing in a brand new manual machine, automatics make a very average coffee, not much better than Nespresso.

    • +6

      Its certainly better than my pod coffee.
      Started off with a Krupps manual years ago.
      I agree, manual is potentially better.
      But much more of a fiddle.
      Good if retired, and can put in the effort to grind your beans, and steam your milk, then clean it all.
      I work, and need something quick, as do my kids.

      • This!
        My Breville BES870 is now sitting unused as I replaced it with one of these factory second automatic DeLonghis (different model though). We found it involved quite a bit of time and tinkering to make a good coffee with the Breville.

        @puffinfresh mine also frequently asks for the grounds container to be emptied for no reason.

    • Manual is a lot of work tho

    • I have primadonna (bought new). I have to say that it makes very average coffee. I actually think pod coffees are better.

      • What beans do you use?
        Do you keep them fresh?
        Is the water filtered?

  • Price went up $100, to $799 :(

    • $739.00 now :)

      • +2

        $639.00 would be more appealing ;)

      • True.
        Can't seem to edit it anymore….
