I have been using the VITEK VT-1514 coffee maker for almost three years. For all the time of use, there was not a day that she stood idle, as we drink delicious coffee every day with the whole family. The model is not the most expensive, but the temperature and pressure are enough to make rich classic black coffee. Cappuccino is also good, but I rarely cook it. The device does not like finely ground coffee powder, the filter mesh immediately clogs, but it is easy to clean.
I bought the VT-1511 model quite recently, I have never tried coffee brewed in a coffee maker before. The choice was made based on reviews on the Internet and so far I have not regretted it. She brews very tasty coffee with a beautiful high foam, and if you add cinnamon or cream, it turns out no worse than they cook in coffee shops. I don’t master technology well, but I coped with this coffee maker even without instructions, so it’s really easy to use.
This video presents review one of the above models:
great review. Thanks for the warnings about heating elements, I will take into account when buying. I didn’t use these models specifically, I don’t have a coffee maker at all yet, I’m just looking closely. But my cousin also has a coffee maker from Vitek (only without a cappuccinatore). The coffee is great, I love it. I also like the fact that replaceable filters are not needed (I don’t like extra fuss).
It has long been a desire to buy a carob coffee maker. I did not know which one to choose, I doubted for a long time. For me, the most important thing is that you can make cappuccino in it. After reading the review, I chose Vitek VT-1514. Yesterday we brought our beauty. Conforms to all described characteristics. Plus there is also a measuring spoon for coffee that comes with the coffee maker. The milk container is enough to prepare three large glasses of cappuccino or latte. But I would not use it to make coffee at work. We have a lot of people in the team and all coffee lovers. And the preparation of a drink in this coffee maker takes some time. It seems to me that for such purposes it is better to opt for a coffee machine.
