DeLonghi Inissia EN 80.B Nespresso im Test!
DeLonghi Inissia EN 80.B Nespresso im Test!

4 Reasons For for Choosing the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S

Built-in Milk Frother

The DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S has a built-in milk frother, and so does the Smeg ECF01, however the Cuisinart EM200, the Nespresso Inissia C40 and the Sage Barista Express do not. 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.

Marginally Better User Reviews

The DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S has an average user review score of 94% based on 344 reviews, however the Sage Barista Express has an average rating of 93% (based on 135 reviews) and the Smeg ECF01 has an average rating of 91% (based on 74 reviews).

Better Overall Reviews

The DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S has an average overall review score of 93% based on 344 reviews, however the Smeg ECF01 has an average rating of 85% (based on 76 reviews).

Better Brand

DeLonghi coffee makers have an average rating of 95%, whereas Cuisinart only has an average rating of 90.1%, Nespresso only has an average rating of 83%, Sage only has an average rating of 64.2% and Smeg only has an average rating of 72.1%.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S

Less Output

DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S is only 1 dispensing capacity, and so do the Nespresso Inissia C40 and the Sage Barista Express. That's 1 cups less than the Cuisinart EM200 and the Smeg ECF01 (2 Cups). 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 Milk Tank

The DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S does not have a milk tank, but the Cuisinart EM200, the Nespresso Inissia C40, the Sage Barista Express and the Smeg ECF01 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Grinder

The DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S does not have a built-in grinder (As do the the Cuisinart EM200 and the Smeg ECF01), however the Nespresso Inissia C40 and the Sage Barista Express do. 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.

1.2L Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S has a water tank capacity of 0.8, but the Nespresso Inissia C40 is a 0.7L water tank capacity coffee maker (0.1L smaller), the Sage Barista Express is a 2L water tank capacity coffee maker (1.2L bigger) and the Smeg ECF01 is a 1L water tank capacity coffee maker (0.2L bigger). 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 Dedica Style EN80S does not have a built-in display (As do the the Cuisinart EM200, the Nespresso Inissia C40 and the Smeg ECF01), however the Sage Barista Express has 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S has received a Kagoo Score of 87, however the Sage Barista Express scored 88.

More Expensive by $50

The DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S is $50 more expensive than the Sage Barista Express.

Less Retailers

The DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S is only stocked by 2 shops, whereas the Cuisinart EM200 is stocked by 10 stores and the Smeg ECF01 is stocked by 5 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this coffee maker remaining in stock.
Older by Over Three Years

The DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S is five months older than the Cuisinart EM200, eight months older than the Nespresso Inissia C40, two years older than the Sage Barista Express and three years older than the Smeg ECF01.

Has a Worse Price

On average reviewers thought the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S has a worse price.

Harder to Use

The DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S reviewers thought the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S was harder to use.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Smeg ECF01

A Lot More Output

The Smeg ECF01 is a 2 dispensing capacity coffee maker (as does the Cuisinart EM200), whereas the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S, the Nespresso Inissia C40 and the Sage Barista Express are all only 1 cup coffee makers (1 cups less). 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!

Built-in Milk Frother

The Smeg ECF01 has a built-in milk frother (as does the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S), but the Cuisinart EM200, the Nespresso Inissia C40 and the Sage Barista Express do not have this feature. 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.

Timer

The Smeg ECF01 has a timer, whereas the Cuisinart EM200, the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S, the Nespresso Inissia C40 and the Sage Barista Express 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!

Nine Months Newer

The Smeg ECF01 was released three years ago, but the Cuisinart EM200 was released six years ago, the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S was released six years ago, the Nespresso Inissia C40 was released five years ago and the Sage Barista Express was released four years ago

One More Award

The Smeg ECF01 has received 1 award, however the Cuisinart EM200 has received no awards, the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S has received no awards, the Nespresso Inissia C40 has received no awards and the Sage Barista Express has received no awards.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Smeg ECF01

Does Not Have a Built-in Grinder

The Smeg ECF01 does not have a built-in grinder (As do the the Cuisinart EM200 and the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S), but the Nespresso Inissia C40 and the Sage Barista Express 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.

Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Smeg ECF01 is a 1 water tank capacity coffee maker. That's 0.3L bigger than the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S and the Nespresso Inissia C40 (0.7L) and 1L smaller than the Sage Barista Express (2L). 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 Smeg ECF01 does not have a built-in display (As do the the Cuisinart EM200, the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S and the Nespresso Inissia C40), but the Sage Barista Express does. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Smeg ECF01 has received a Kagoo Score of 82, but the Cuisinart EM200 scored 83, the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S scored 87, the Nespresso Inissia C40 scored 86 and the Sage Barista Express scored 88.

$321 More Expensive

The Smeg ECF01 is more expensive than the Cuisinart EM200 by $236, more expensive than the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S by $271, more expensive than the Nespresso Inissia C40 by $246 and more expensive than the Sage Barista Express by $321.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 5 stores sells the Smeg ECF01, however 10 shops sell the Cuisinart EM200. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this coffee maker remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Marginally Lower User Review Score

The Smeg ECF01 has an average user rating of 91%, but the DeLonghi Dedica Style EN80S has an average user rating of 94% (based on 344 reviews) and the Sage Barista Express has an average user rating of 93% (based on 135 reviews).

Lower Overall Review Score

Worse Brand

Smeg coffee makers have an average rating of only 72.1%, however Cuisinart has an average rating of 90.1%, DeLonghi has an average rating of 95% and Nespresso has an average rating of 83%.
