Could Do BetterI so want to love this macine but it has one major fail. It brews too fast, and I can prove it! Ive been a filter coffee lover for more years than I can remember. Anyone who has this machine can follow my advice and I will be proved right.
It brews too fast! Even if you use the 1-4 button, your result will be a coffee that is lacking in depth. Now try this...
Do the same as you have been doing with the coffee maker but use a filter paper inside the plastic perma filter that is supplied, use the 1-4 button. The addition of a paper slows down the process, forcing the ground coffee to saturate and hold on to the water for longer. When you first try this you may find the brew too strong, dont mistake strength for depth of flavour, reduce the amount of ground a little and try again.
I guarantee you will have a much better coffee experience if you follow this advice. Other than this I love the machine, hotplate functions well which is rare in a lot of machines.
So, other than that, Im really happy with the machine

Good but limitedGreat and quick coffee, disappointment is does not keep hot for long, I am used to having my coffee last 3-4 hours, not just 40 minutes.

it broke within 2 months...We purchased the coffee maker and after 2 months it started leaking underneath, it also stopped making coffee and letting water through the red part- even after very careful cleaning.
We did not realised the product has to be registered within first month to have a guarantee... does not seam right!
It looks like it is going to the bin. Such a shame as we thought initially it is an amazing product..
Very dissatisfied with this product and very disappointed!
We will not be buying russelhobbs products again.

Stylish MachineThe Buckingham Stainless Steel Coffee Machine was in an eye-catching box and well packaged.The instruction manual was easy to follow.
It has a 24hour timer so that you can programme it to have your coffee whenever you like.The illuminating light stays on while it's brewing and when it's being kept warm for you, but has an auto shut-off facility in case you forget to turn it off.
It can make up to 10 cups of lovely filtered coffee which is great for when you're on your own or having the family or friends for a meal.
It brews really fast and the showerhead technology really improves the flavour of the coffee.
It is stylish and the black and silver design looks really good in my kitchen and didn't take up too much room.
I love this coffee machine and my kitchen always smells lovely while it's brewing.
