  1. tbh I try not to overthink this, fill up, use & fill up again. If the machines flow started to slow down or machines maintenance light appears - change filter etc' I agree it's not for everyone but the fact that I get no scale (machine worst enemy) far out weighs any other consideration. Also the plastic waste from bottled water I was throwing away also was another reason.
  2. @Bullit121, I think your filter change after 6 months could be way out, it depends on your tap water and how much you use. The average filter change is 12 months, as was mine, I only changed mine because the machine told me too. Never looked back since I bought this, no plastic waste and no kettle, apart from a gooseneck for pour over. I have never had to descale my Lelit and the kettle has absolutely no scale. If it went tits up tomorrow I would not hesitate buying another, if it could not be fixed.

    I'll drop this to £25 inc delivery.
  6. Yet again, first class service from BB Bought a new Eureka Filtro grinder and a couple of dark hoppers (one for my Specialita) on Wednesday. Unfortunately the hopper lids were cracked, quick phone call to David who sorted it. New lids arrived today with no problems. Excellent service as always.

    I have a Delonghi KG79 grinder for sale. Ideal for pour over, filter etc' not so good for espresso unless modified (easy to do). Bought last August in very good condition, no scratches (dust on photos) Boxed with manual. £30 including delivery - f&f paypal
  8. @DavecUK, Yes you did mention extracting - sorry. You mention "not too close", so my initial idea of sticking a fan to the casing is perhaps not a good idea. I'll have to figure out some kind of fan mounting away from the machine. Thanks for a great review, which I obviously missed parts of.
  9. @DavecUK, I would like to add an extract fan to the exit vent, how hot does the casing get. Would I/we be able to fix a fan to the side of the casing ? or could you suggest how to extract etc'.
  10. Can be moved to sold @DavecUK

    @HDAV, I have a knock box if still required :- Stainless Steel 12 x 8 x 3 inches 47.50 inc delivery.
  14. 12" x 8" x 3" Stainless Steel knock box. Was a Gaggia but the name was polished off (front of drawer) £47.50 inc delivery (PayPal f&f or pay fees).
  15. Another +1 for the stainless steel version - having used both.
  16. Mine does that, I'll wash its feet and manicure etc' It sits on a shiney knock box though - maybe the reason.
  17. I can live with that, I'll pm you mate.
  18. I've took these tonight, I'll try again tomorrow in daylight. too many reflections.
  19. @thawhat I have one to let go, bought it from Italy €130, no marks on the black top etc' but slight surface marks on the metal as expected, no dinks or gouges. £75 delivered. Photos available if interested.
  20. I'm afraid we are up against a certain section of the community who do not give a shit about anybody else. There will always be the foil hat brigade who think they know better, I've always been a bit of a hippy but I know whats right and wrong. Mother nature is missing a trick here, she could purge the earth of the idiots but she is unfortunately taking the wrong ones. Roll on the vaccine so we can get back to a more normal life (hopefully).
  21. Hi Dav, I have changed the gasket (for original) and I will check this again. I use Osmio water so descaling is not an option. Many thanks for your thoughts, appreciated.
  22. I've used Bialetti's for a few years now with no problems, but recently it has started to spurt (fnarr fnarr) straight away. I use the hot water method, tbh my taste buds are shot so it makes no difference to the taste, just weird that it has started to happen. Venus 6 cup version.
  23. It's really not that hard to do mate. The results are well worth the small effort.
