The Delonghi EC155 is the most popular and best-selling entry-level model from the Italian company Delonghi. It is situated halfway between the EC-145 and the Delonghi EC-270, but it offers performances quite similar to those of the first coffee machine. However, it is on par with the EC-270 in terms of the price range (around £130).

This Delonghi EC-155 is neither more nor less than a revision or an update of the original EC-145 model. It is of much more recent manufacture and also has some more polished details. Its dimensions are also slightly smaller (although this is hardly noticeable, it is only a one-centimetre difference in width and height).

Otherwise, the basic features are the same as those of the Delonghi EC-145, and in its design, we only find the difference that both the front and the upper panel that acts like a cup warmer, as well as the drip tray, are metallic and not black plastic as in the EC145.

At the top, you will see a small round control knob that serves to regulate the pressure of the steamer, as well as a lid that opens upwards and serves to fill and remove the water tank. The main control wheel of this Delonghi EC-155 (the one used to select the most important functions) is located on the front panel, as you can see in the following picture:

Disadvantages Of The Delonghi EC155
