The Philips Senseo HD7817 oo / 69 replaces a still functioning betagtes predecessor, which had suffered visually after frequent descaling something.
-> Among the spout fit comfortably coffee mugs to 9cm height, slightly less comfortable with a slight tilt and up to 10 cm height.
+ - With an additional 50 watts Philipps has performance increased slightly. The coffee should thereby come to 2 ° C from the hot outlet. The promised temperature difference I could not understand a food thermometer with measuring range up to 90 ° C
oo Padholder have been slightly improved with a sieve in the outlet and a nozzle at the bottom, thus they are not less in need of purification than previously.
oo The screen on which are the cups, is now made of plastic, thus the operation is considerably quieter.
++ All detachable parts are easy to rinse and wash.
For occasional Kafeetrinker with little space in the kitchen a coffee pod machine is a practical solution.
The new model is slightly changed, it became more plastic than previously installed. As a rather unassuming coffee drinker, I hope the new Senseo greater durability than its predecessor, so as not to unnecessarily create electronic waste. The quality of the previous model, I found less convincing; a plastic surface that has to withstand only damp wiping, was supposed to be more durable.
For descaling buy crystalline citric acid in 500g bags, which I may touch but 1:10 with 1 liter of water in a glass vessel for the formulation of other reviewers.
