Difference between Sunbeam EM7000 and 7100
First post from New Zealand. I have had 2 Sunbeam Cafe series coffee machines over the last 14 years - an average of 7 years out of each machine. The current model is showing signs of giving up the ghost and I am looking for a replacement.
I'm trying to work out what the difference is between the 7000 and the 7100, other than that the 7100 seems to have a group holder that supports capsules. Any ideas. I have searched extensively on the net and found nothing useful.
The pod capability is pretty much the only difference. Rumour has it that the 7100 is slightly "detuned" in temperature and pressure to better cater to the pods.
Choice recommended the EM7000 but not the EM7100 "due to the poor test score in capsule mode".
