All parts are dishwasher safe, according to Philips. So far I have the parts all cleaned by hand what works quickly and easily.
If one is looking at the Senseo alone this drink less coffee for people and have nothing against the pads and thus greater amount of waste in the kitchen, the higher running costs in purchase take (Example: Senseo Classic 1kg Pads ca.24 Euro here at Amazon: 160 cups, 1kg beans eg Dallmeyer about 12 euros. ca 200 cups in fully automatic machines) a really good pad machine. Simple, solid and fast.
Since I have all kinds of coffee preparation now used, but I can also say that for me as a frequent-coffee drinkers a pod machine is only between good. I use it whenever I want to drink a variety that tastes not necessarily to "normal" coffee. The same is true for capsule machines that I use also.
If you want to taste an excellent coffee, but nothing beats a freshly ground coffee from a fully automatic or manually ground or even a good filter coffee
In my personal coffee makers-Ranking the Senseo is number 4. The coffee taste is ok, but not really anything to do with a freshly ground and very good coffee. And taste has over the years not done much. Senseo coffee still tastes like over 10 years ago, which is far from being bad.
Since then I feel but the price for such a machine to be too high and you should not ignore the running costs of the pads, I give solid 3 stars. My recommendation to buy for "Little-coffee drinkers." Maybe my somewhat negative experience with a flow in terms of longevity of Senseo because I still know several people besides me where the engine gave up the ghost after a few years.
+ Faster Coffee
+ Little effort in the preparation
+ Easy operation
+ Visually timeless
+ Ideal for little-coffee drinkers
- Increase in the price of the machine with no perceived added value
- Changing the water tank from plastic, is stable, but does not feel like that
- Higher costs compared to coffee
