The Breville VCF011 Instant Cappuccino Coffee Machine, in stylish black, makes authentic tasting cappuccino using instant coffee. It is also suitable for latte, Americano, hot chocolate, mocha and hot malt drinks.
"Makes nice milky drinks but doesn't do anything I couldn't do in a microwave or a saucepan with less fuss. I thought it would give a much frothier finish than it does - disappointed. Also the plastic taste lasts for quite a while so you will need to persevere."
"bought this cappucino maker as it uses instant coffee granuals as the pod coffee works out at nearly 40p per cup, this machine makes a lovely frothy rich cappucino and tastes fantastic, ive even diluted the milk a little to make it a little more healthy and it stills makes a lovely drink"
"Its a 'fuss free' machine thats economical to use daily due to the genius idea of using granulated coffee! A water guage would be useful, I just check mine at the start of each day when its cool. I love it and am totally addicted! Well done!!!"
"A little larger than I had expected but makes a cracking cup of coffee. Uses ordinary instant coffee which is a great idea. I have been using half milk and half water and getting stunning results. None of the plastic taste others have complained about. Simply followed the instructions about initial cleaning. Well pleased with this product and recommend it highly."
"I returned this item. I was so glad that this was remade after breville stopped making, and looked forward to getting one, however it was not as good as it should have been. It took well over 5 minutes to heat up each time for every cup/mug of drink, and most times the first attempt didn't dispense so had to wait again to reheat, and despite having cleaned it thoroughly through first as per instructions, still have to clean after each use as using milk which again takes time to heat."
"This product was what my hubby was looking for in a coffee machine without pods. Unfortunately had to take back for full refund after Xmas as kept on getting a burnt taste in coffee which would not go away and this sadly wasn't worth keeping. Thanks for my quick refund Argos."
"The coffee is hot and frothy. My only reservation and the reason I have taken so long to write my review is that I am still getting a plastic/metal taste. I thought and hoped it would go away even after cleaning the unit many times. My wife will not drink the coffee any more but I am persisting in the hope it will improve."
"brought this one to replace the same make but earlier model but very disappointed as still got same problems and it its advertised as froth all the way but even after following all the instruction to the letter and repeatedly cleaning as per instruction we cant get a decent cup of coffee even after emailing the makers we are very disappointed with the whole machine and wont buy any more coffee makers except a NEW KETTLE ANDINSTANT COFFEE"
"do not buy it is rubbish, drinks cold, no seperate water tank you have to lift up the whole machine tip it upside down to empty water tank, after each use you have to go through a cleaning process which is a tedious job, i returned to store after a couple of days as it stopped working properly. the coffee it makes is no different to a milky coffee you can make in a microwave nothing like a nice frothy cappacino."
