I agree... How about larger boilers.....better gauges that dont steam up....upgraded electronics.... two year warranty? I would like it to be made somewhere besides china.

You won't be able to turn the steam boiler off, as the espresso water temp stability is dependant on the temp of the water being delivered to the espresso boiler via the heat exchanger in the steam boiler.

Cheers, Phil

A few other DB machines use water being delivered to the espresso boiler via the heat exchanger in the steam boiler with decent temp stability. What makes the BDB different ?

Thanks

Not to beat a dead horse, but wonder if Mr McKnight reads these comments on the BREVILLE support site.. Guess I'm not the only one who feels this way. BREVILLE is losing sales!! It's a shame because so many, including me, would probably buy this machine if it was built elsewhere. Unfortunately, before I became informed about the issues in China, I did purchase two Breville products and they are well built...

Not sure the word "not" means what you think it means.

I guarantee Breville would lose more sales from the increased prices manufacturing outside of China than they would gain from the very small number of people who care about where it is manufactured.  I can also pretty much guarantee that Breville is not going to spend the (likely) millions of dollars to re-tool a factory somewhere other than China.

That's not a Breville support forum.  That's a third-party site, unaffiliated with Breville.  It is also a bad link.

It says.. community powered support for Breville.. Not sure you speak the same language as I do.....    

Your idea that manufacturing in China is the way to go is only your opinion.. nothing more. The number of people that care about China made products is growing daily. Companies that manufacture in the US use the fact that their products are made in the US as part of their marketing. You can try to dispute what I say all you want, but this is reality. If you choose to buy those products, so be it.
