Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris from Really Disappointing-don't buy for good extraction I just purchased this machine in late November 2019. I have used it 3 times. I loved that this machine had the option of adjustable water temperature and how precise it could be. But after 1 use I noticed that the coffee was extremely week, with the correct coffee to water ratio (I even measured it by weight). So I decided to measure the temperature of the water right out of the shower. I consistently got 170-180F, with a calibrated probe thermometer. This is bad when you set the temp to 205F. I figured something was wrong so I called customer service. They then proceeded to tell me that 170-180F is within specification of the machine. A 35 degree F tolerance is within spec? For anyone that knows anything about coffee, you cannot extract enough solids at those temperatures. If you are looking to purchase this machine for good water temp, I suggest staying away. I will be returning this tomorrow and getting a different machine that can maintain proper temperature.Date published: 2019-12-13Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris from Really Disappointing-don't buy for good extraction I just purchased this machine in late November 2019.

It does the same thing as my old Bonavita, where it holds the water until it's the correct temperature, then dispenses the water. But it also handles the bloom phase. #2: It makes A LOT of coffee. Up to 60 oz. And the carafe is good. #3 The build quality is confidence inspiring. The parts that are metal are the right parts. The buttons and the knobs feel good. I'm very please with this.Date published: 2019-10-16Rated 1 out of 5 by erictigger from Want to love but can't On paper, this product had the features we wanted and I love my other Breville products. I've even given 2 of the Smart Oven Air as gifts and bought 2 for myself. First, the coffee maker is noisy out of the box and only gets noisier. Second, its messy. It drips coffee from the basket when you remove the pot. If you want cold brew, a French press works much better and makes more of it. After a year of roughly 4 day a week use, with descaling, troubleshooting error messages, and noise, the machine has stopped working. Seems to be pump related as it pumps a bit of water, then the water level stops going down. Unplugging and restarting got it going again but then it made a lot of steam, like a steam cleaner. It doesn't empty the water even to the "normal" amount that remains when working and the coffee that came out tastes burnt. As they say, this machine is a swing and a miss.Date published: 2019-05-20Rated 5 out of 5 by MarkMil82 from BEST coffee maker! This is the BEST coffee maker I have ever used! There are 6 different brewing modes to use.. so you can make pretty much ANY kind of coffee! The modes are Gold, Fast, Strong, Iced, Cold Brew and My Brew. For Gold, it automatically adjusts the temperature AND the brew time!! For Fast, it basically is just faster at making the coffee come out. Strong makes the coffee stronger. Cold brew is for well, cold brew! And My Brew is customizable! You can adjust the flow rate AND the brew time! Then, it stores that info and you can select it again and it will brew it just how you want it! This coffee maker also lets you test how hard your water is and adjusts to that as well, so your coffee tastes better! This amazing coffee maker also can make 12 cups of coffee at a time so you don't have to worry about running out of coffee! It's also really easy to set up. When you plug it in, it asks you to test your water hardness level. After you do that, you can set the clock on it, and you are off and running! You turn the knob to choose what kind of coffee you want and then press it in to select. Then you hit the start button and VOILA! There is an auto start button as well that you can use. This machine also has a descaling feature, which pretty much cleans off all of the build up that the hard water may cause. I think this is great because we get harder water here and I don't want to ruin the machine! The quality of this machine is AMAZING! It is built very well and is super durable! It's heavy duty. It is also easy to learn how to use it, so ANYONE can learn how to use it. It does take a little bit of time to set it up but after it's set up, it's done! I am going to be recommending this machine to everyone I know that drinks coffee because it is a machine I know will last me a LONG time because of how it is built. I don't think I'm going to need a new coffee maker for a long time!! Pros: Quality, 6 modes, ease of use Cons: takes a little time to set up but it's not hard!

This brew system allows me to make coffee four different ways. Each method brews a pot that is coffee shop level. My favorite for every day is “gold”. It’s a smooth, balanced cup of coffee. Don’t be intimidated by the manual. The steps to getting started are quick and simple! Also, buy a grinder! The taste of brewed freshly ground coffee is SO much better! You won’t need to go back to a coffee shop. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]Date published: 2019-03-29Rated 5 out of 5 by pshah78tx from Excellent Coffee Brewer! This is the best coffee brewer. It just one machine but you can make hot and cold coffee that is amazing.This machine also had adjustable temperature and makes 12 cups of coffee in just 7 minutes. I highly recommend in all households. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]Date published: 2019-03-26Rated 5 out of 5 by coffeeguru from Excellent Machine! Since receiving our machine about a week ago we have been using it daily. I will say this; this machine makes a wonderful cup of coffee. We have had other coffee makers in the past but nothing like the Breville. We bought this because we wanted restaurant quality coffee at home and because of the thermal carafe. A couple of things I noticed about this model were. if you do the initial settings incorrectly (like I did for water hardness) there are instructions in the manual about how to do a factory reset and that will allow you to go through the settings again. Also remember a coffee maker can only brew what you put inside SO use quality coffee and you will get quality results! Another thing I noticed is coffee takes about 8 to 9 mins to brew a full pot(carafe) which is OK considering the quality. I'm in love with the carafe; the coffee stays hot for several hours and warm for most of the day. I've made coffee at 6 AM and dumped it at 6 PM and the coffee was still warm!! I love that it automatically knows how much coffee to brew based on the amount of water you add and I love the label tells me which filter to use and how many scoops of coffee it will require based on the water. It's even on the reservoir itself!!! Talk about convenience!! My only complaint is there is always a tad bit of water left in the reservoir after making each pot but I use mine a lot so I’m not worried at all about that, if I were I would just dry it out if I were going to be awhile in between pots! and I also think it’s important to follow the instructions for priming the machine prior to the first use and I recommend you do the same just follow the instructions and you will be drinking your own awesome coffee you won’t regret getting machine it’s a keeper.

How do I get rid of the musty odor in the water tank? Descaled, still there.It would be best to fill the water tank of the Breville® BDC450 Precision Brewer™ Thermal with hot soapy water and allow this to sit in the tank for an hour or so. Empty the water tank and wipe dry then allow to complete the drying with the lid off.Date published: 2020-01-14

Does the light of the LCD screen dim? If the machine signals when the coffee is done, can the volume be turned down or muted?The LCD screens back-light will go out when the machine enters the StandBy mode. The sound that occurs when the brew cycle is done can be adjusted in the settings of the machine by scrolling down to the Setting option and pushing the Start/Cancel button.Date published: 2019-05-20
