As far as “combis” are concerned, the German firm Beem is undoubtedly one of the market’s references. On this occasion, we are going to talk about the Beem 4 in 1 Ecco Deluxe, an appliance that combines the most important functions that we can need in our daily kitchen: a drip coffee machine, a toaster, and a kettle.

This one is an improved version of the Beem 3 in 1 Ecco breakfast centre that we recently reviewed on our blog.

Beem 4 In 1 Ecco Deluxe: Review

The main differences between the 3 in 1 and the 4 in 1 model are not functional. Still, above all in their appearance and construction: The Beem 4 in 1 Ecco Deluxe has all its components (not just the exterior panels) made in stainless steel, which results in a more durable and cleaner product.

In terms of performance, the Beem 4 in 1 Ecco Deluxe offers some extra options in the same functional range as its “little sister3 in 1 Ecco. For example, it has 11 intensity levels in the toaster (for only 6 of the 3 in 1 Ecco) or a digital display that greatly improves and simplifies the controls of the appliance.

There is also a slightly more complete keyboard or button panel than we saw in the other model. The entire control system is located on the machine’s front panel, under the coffee machine’s water indicator.

As you read these lines, you have probably wondered what the four functions are that give this breakfast centre its name (4 in 1 Ecco), haven’t you? Well, let’s get this straight: on the left is the drip coffee maker, which we’ll talk about later. A very fast kettle on the right that can heat up to 1.7 litres of water in a few seconds.

The toaster is at the back of the piece, which also incorporates a system that allows us to heat scones. Thus, we have four functions: coffee machine, kettle, toaster and heater. We will discuss the latter with greater precision in the section on characteristics.

Beem 4 in 1 Ecco Deluxe: A stainless steel breakfast centre

We will now talk about the coffee maker of this Beem 4 in 1 Ecco Deluxe combi, which is the component where we are most interested in stopping by the nature of our website.

It is a drip or filters coffee machine whose filter holder and thermal carafe are 100% stainless steel except for the black handles made of heat-insulating material.

As usual in the filter coffee machine segment, those with a thermal carafe have a slightly smaller capacity than traditional glass carafes. On this occasion, the coffee machine of the Beem 4 in 1 Ecco Deluxe has a capacity of 1 litre (for 1.25 litres of which we find in the Beem 3 in 1 Ecco).

Inside the filter holder, we find a permanent filter of size 1×4, which means we won’t have to go around buying or using paper filters continuously for single use. And then there’s the important anti-drip system: a safety lock that prevents the coffee maker from continuing to operate if the thermal carafe is removed from its position.

In total, the coffee machine distributes a power of 800 watts in operation, more than enough for the volume of water it will use. It is a mid-range drip coffee machine with the advantage of the thermal carafe, which is always appreciated for enjoying coffee in better condition for longer.

Beem 4 in 1 Ecco Deluxe: Main features

Due to the special characteristics of a combined appliance such as this, we will indicate the most important aspects of each element separately:

Of the coffee machine:

  • Thermal carafe of 1-litre capacity (more or less for 8 cups of coffee).
  • Pivoting stainless steel filter holder.
  • Permanent filter included.
  • Transparent indicator of the water level in the tank.
  • Water tank with a capacity of 1 litre.
  • Anti-drip system when the thermal carafe is not in place.
  • Power: 800 watts.

From the toaster:

  • Capacity for two simultaneous slices.
  • 11 roasting intensities.
  • Digital display for viewing and selecting settings.
  • Defrosting function.
  • Stop button to immediately stop roasting and remove the slices.
  • Possibility to heat (not toast) scones or rolls by placing them on top.

From the kettle:

  • Maximum capacity for 1.7 litres of water.
  • Indicator of the water level inside at any moment.
  • Built-in anti-scale filter.
  • It automatically switches off when it finishes boiling.

From the breakfast centre (complete piece):

  • Built 100% in stainless steel.
  • Includes non-slip feet at the base.
  • Total combined power: 3800 watts.
  • Approximate dimensions: 43 x 31 x 33 centimeters.
  • Total weight: about 4 kilograms.

Advantages of the Beem 4 in 1 Ecco Deluxe

  • Obviously, the use of stainless steel in the construction of all the main components of the combi. Both in the touch and in the sight you can see that they are quality elements.
  • The roaster is very complete: several functions, many roasting settings, stop button.
  • The design is very compact and fits well in kitchens with little space (one of the purposes we look for when buying a centre like this).

Disadvantages of the Beem 4 in 1 Ecco Deluxe

  • The thermal carafe does not allow you to know how much coffee is inside.
  • The roaster, although technically it has room for two slices, we are left with just enough if the slices are a little wide.
  • In terms of value for money, you can find serious competition in the Beem 3 in 1 Ecco model.

Why buy a Beem 4 in 1 Ecco Deluxe?

The main motivation for buying a breakfast centre like this is to be able to carry out your daily tasks (roasting, making coffee, boiling water) more quickly and taking up much less space.

If you’re not going to use any of the features of this combi – for example, you don’t usually eat toast at home, or you don’t need to boil water because you don’t drink tea – then buying this Beem 4 in 1 Ecco Deluxe is not a good idea for you. You’ll have to look for other alternatives.

We recommend it if you want to save space in your kitchen and don’t mind paying a little more money in exchange for having everything tidier.

It should be clear that if you buy these three elements separately, quality and performance similar to this Beem 4 in 1 Ecco Deluxe, you will always get something cheaper together (although it will probably not be stainless steel).

In addition, the Beem 4 in 1 Ecco Deluxe is an excellent option to make a good gift to anyone you want. A useful and original device, with a very good quality of manufacture.

As alternatives, the only matching option we can value is Beem 3 in 1 Ecco. It is a very similar combi but with somewhat lower performance. We recommend that you read the analyses of both of them carefully on our website, and decide for yourself whether the difference in price between the two compensates you sufficiently.
