7 Reasons For for Choosing the DeLonghi EN520BK

Timer

The DeLonghi EN520BK has a timer, and so does the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO, however the Krups XN740B, the Russell Hobbs Elegance and the Whirlpool ACE010IX do not. More ...

'Timer' indicates whether the coffee maker allows you to pre-fill the machine and set a timer, so that it automatically starts making coffee at a certain point.

This is extremely helpful for first thing in the morning - you can fill the machine before bed, set a timer and wake up to freshly-brewed coffee!

Milk Tank

The DeLonghi EN520BK has a milk tank, whereas the Krups XN740B, the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO, the Russell Hobbs Elegance and the Whirlpool ACE010IX do not have this feature. More ...

'Milk Tank' indicates whether the coffee maker has an attached milk tank or not.

Milk tanks are helpful for automatically heating and foaming milk to add to Italian espresso drinks such as lattes and cappuccinos. Otherwise you'll have to heat the milk and add it yourself.

Better Kagoo Score

The DeLonghi EN520BK has received a Kagoo Score of 84, whereas the Krups XN740B scored 77, the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO scored 77, the Russell Hobbs Elegance scored only 62 and the Whirlpool ACE010IX scored only 60.

$107 Cheaper

The DeLonghi EN520BK is $178.68 cheaper than the Krups XN740B, $310 cheaper than the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO, $107.32 cheaper than the Russell Hobbs Elegance and $368.46 cheaper than the Whirlpool ACE010IX.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this coffee maker and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

User Reviews Are Appreciably Better

Based on 228 reviews, the average user review score of the DeLonghi EN520BK is 94%, whereas the average rating of the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO is 82% (based on 49 reviews).

Better Brand

DeLonghi coffee makers have an average rating of 95%, but Krups only has an average rating of 93.2%, Melitta only has an average rating of 82.6%, Russell Hobbs only has an average rating of 64.4% and Whirlpool only has an average rating of 52.8%.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the DeLonghi EN520BK

9 Cups Less Output

The DeLonghi EN520BK has an output of 1 (as does the Krups XN740B), however the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO is a 2 cup coffee maker (1 cups more) and the Russell Hobbs Elegance is a 10 cup coffee maker (9 cups more). More ...

'Output' denotes how much coffee the machine is capable of brewing and delivering at once, measured in cups. This is specifically important for cafetieres or drip-filter machines - however some larger coffee makers can churn out an extremely high level of coffee (in the thousands) while others concentrate on a single very high-quality cup.

A larger output means that the coffee maker can produce more coffee at once, though the amount of coffee created is nowhere near as important as the *quality* of the cup!

Only One Spout

The DeLonghi EN520BK is a one spout coffee maker, and so does the Krups XN740B, whereas the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO only has two spouts. More ...

We do not know the number of spouts on the Russell Hobbs Elegance or the Whirlpool ACE010IX. It is possible that they do not have any spouts.

The number of spouts used by the machine for pouring coffee.

Normally you only make one cup of coffee at a time - however machines with multiple spouts allow you to funnel the coffee into several cups at once.

Does Not Have a Built-in Grinder

The DeLonghi EN520BK does not have a built-in grinder (As do the the Krups XN740B and the Whirlpool ACE010IX), whereas the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO and the Russell Hobbs Elegance have this feature. More ...

'Built-In Grinder' denotes whether the coffee maker has a built in grinder to automatically grind a fresh batch of coffee grounds as needed.

Coffee is best when freshly ground, before it's had a chance to dry out and lose flavour - a built in grinder means you'll always be using the freshest grinds for your drinks.

40% Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The DeLonghi EN520BK is a 0.9 water tank capacity coffee maker. That's 0.6L smaller than the Krups XN740B, the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO, the Russell Hobbs Elegance and the Whirlpool ACE010IX (1.5L). More ...

'Water Tank Capacity' is a measurement of how much water the coffee maker can hold at once.

A bigger water capacity means that the coffee maker will need refilling less frequently.

Does Not Have a Built-in Display

The DeLonghi EN520BK does not have a built-in display (As does the the Krups XN740B), whereas the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO, the Russell Hobbs Elegance and the Whirlpool ACE010IX do. More ...

'Built-In Display' denotes whether the coffee maker has a screen displaying the coffee choices, current coffee brewing, any errors, etc.

A display allows you to quickly see the status of the coffee machine, choose drinks, etc.

Over Five Years Older

The DeLonghi EN520BK is older than the Krups XN740B by five years and older than the Russell Hobbs Elegance by four years.

Energy Efficiency Rating is Worse

The DeLonghi EN520BK has a European Union Energy Efficiency Rating of "A", whereas the Whirlpool ACE010IX has a rating of "A+".

Appreciably Lower Expert Review Score

The average expert rating of the DeLonghi EN520BK is only 70%, whereas the average expert rating of the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO is 82% (based on 3 reviews).

Lower Overall Review Score

The average overall rating of the DeLonghi EN520BK is only 78%, whereas the average overall rating of the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO is 83% (based on 52 reviews).

Worse Tweakers.net Review Score

Whilst the DeLonghi EN520BK has received a Tweakers.net review score of 80%, the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO has a score of 100%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the EN520BK in the US is $200.00 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.

'Output' denotes how much coffee the machine is capable of brewing and delivering at once, measured in cups. This is specifically important for cafetieres or drip-filter machines - however some larger coffee makers can churn out an extremely high level of coffee (in the thousands) while others concentrate on a single very high-quality cup.

11 Reasons For for Choosing the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO

Two Spouts

The number of spouts on the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO is two, but the Krups XN740B only has one spout. More ...

We do not know the number of spouts on the Russell Hobbs Elegance or the Whirlpool ACE010IX. It is possible that they do not have any spouts.

The number of spouts used by the machine for pouring coffee.

Normally you only make one cup of coffee at a time - however machines with multiple spouts allow you to funnel the coffee into several cups at once.

Timer

The Melitta CAFFEO SOLO has a timer, and so does the DeLonghi EN520BK, whereas the Krups XN740B, the Russell Hobbs Elegance and the Whirlpool ACE010IX do not. More ...

'Timer' indicates whether the coffee maker allows you to pre-fill the machine and set a timer, so that it automatically starts making coffee at a certain point.

This is extremely helpful for first thing in the morning - you can fill the machine before bed, set a timer and wake up to freshly-brewed coffee!

Built-in Grinder

The Melitta CAFFEO SOLO has a built-in grinder, however the DeLonghi EN520BK, the Krups XN740B, the Russell Hobbs Elegance and the Whirlpool ACE010IX do not. More ...

'Built-In Grinder' denotes whether the coffee maker has a built in grinder to automatically grind a fresh batch of coffee grounds as needed.

Coffee is best when freshly ground, before it's had a chance to dry out and lose flavour - a built in grinder means you'll always be using the freshest grinds for your drinks.

Adjustable Coffee Strength

The Melitta CAFFEO SOLO supports adjustable coffee strength, but the DeLonghi EN520BK, the Krups XN740B, the Russell Hobbs Elegance and the Whirlpool ACE010IX do not support this feature. More ...

'Adjustable Coffee Strength' indicates whether the you can modify the strength of the coffee produced by the machine, making it stronger or weaker. This is normally done by adding or subtracting 'shots' of espresso from the drink.

Adjustable strength means you can tailor the coffee to personal preferences - not everyone wants their coffee to be rocket fuel!

Built-in Display

The Melitta CAFFEO SOLO has a built-in display (as does the Russell Hobbs Elegance), however the DeLonghi EN520BK, the Krups XN740B and the Whirlpool ACE010IX do not have this feature. More ...

'Built-In Display' denotes whether the coffee maker has a screen displaying the coffee choices, current coffee brewing, any errors, etc.

A display allows you to quickly see the status of the coffee machine, choose drinks, etc.

One More Award

The Melitta CAFFEO SOLO has received 1 award, however the DeLonghi EN520BK has received no awards, the Krups XN740B has received no awards, the Russell Hobbs Elegance has received no awards and the Whirlpool ACE010IX has received no awards.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO

8 Cups Less Output

The Melitta CAFFEO SOLO is a 2 dispensing capacity coffee maker, whereas the DeLonghi EN520BK and the Krups XN740B are both 1 cup coffee makers (1 cups less) and the Russell Hobbs Elegance is a 10 cup coffee maker (8 cups more). More ...

'Output' denotes how much coffee the machine is capable of brewing and delivering at once, measured in cups. This is specifically important for cafetieres or drip-filter machines - however some larger coffee makers can churn out an extremely high level of coffee (in the thousands) while others concentrate on a single very high-quality cup.

A larger output means that the coffee maker can produce more coffee at once, though the amount of coffee created is nowhere near as important as the *quality* of the cup!

Does Not Have a Built-in Milk Frother

The Melitta CAFFEO SOLO does not have a built-in milk frother (As does the the Krups XN740B), whereas the DeLonghi EN520BK, the Russell Hobbs Elegance and the Whirlpool ACE010IX do. More ...

'Built-In Milk Frother' denotes whether the coffee maker has a special device for heating and frothing milk, usually by way of a hot steam pipe.

Milk foam is a key ingredient for several Italian espresso-based drinks, such as cappuccinos and macchiatos.

Does Not Have a Milk Tank

The Melitta CAFFEO SOLO does not have a milk tank (As does the the Whirlpool ACE010IX), whereas the DeLonghi EN520BK, the Krups XN740B and the Russell Hobbs Elegance do. More ...

'Milk Tank' indicates whether the coffee maker has an attached milk tank or not.

Milk tanks are helpful for automatically heating and foaming milk to add to Italian espresso drinks such as lattes and cappuccinos. Otherwise you'll have to heat the milk and add it yourself.

0.3L Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Melitta CAFFEO SOLO is a 1.2 water tank capacity coffee maker. That's 0.3L bigger than the DeLonghi EN520BK (0.9L) and 0.3L smaller than the Krups XN740B, the Russell Hobbs Elegance and the Whirlpool ACE010IX (1.5L). More ...

'Water Tank Capacity' is a measurement of how much water the coffee maker can hold at once.

A bigger water capacity means that the coffee maker will need refilling less frequently.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Melitta CAFFEO SOLO has received a Kagoo Score of 77, but the DeLonghi EN520BK scored 84.

$310 More Expensive

The Melitta CAFFEO SOLO is more expensive than the DeLonghi EN520BK by $310, more expensive than the Krups XN740B by $131 and more expensive than the Russell Hobbs Elegance by $203.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 seller sell the Melitta CAFFEO SOLO, however 2 shops sell the DeLonghi EN520BK and 2 stores sell the Russell Hobbs Elegance. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this coffee maker remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Over Six Years Older

The Melitta CAFFEO SOLO is older than the DeLonghi EN520BK by 18 months, older than the Krups XN740B by seven years and older than the Russell Hobbs Elegance by five years.

Appreciably Lower User Review Score

The Melitta CAFFEO SOLO has an average user rating of 82%, but the DeLonghi EN520BK has an average user rating of 94% (based on 228 reviews).

Worse Brand

Melitta coffee makers have an average rating of only 82.6%, however DeLonghi has an average rating of 95% and Krups has an average rating of 93.2%.
