Compare: Jura Impressa Z5 vs. Saeco Xelsis

For a long time, we had what most people would consider an unnatural love for the Jura Impressa Z5. It was so sleek, so flexible — and it did everything we asked it to. Who wouldn’t love that?

But an appreciation rooted in gadgetgeek love is always at risk of being supplanted, and the Saeco Xelsis is definitely wooing us. Watch Gail take us through the features of both of these machines and demonstrate their one-touch cappuccino functionality.

Yeah — it’s still a tough call. You can get a deeper understanding by watching the complete individual reviews of the Xelsis and the Jura Impressa Z5.

    I bought a Jura Z5 and it has been a lemon. Over a 2-3 year period I have had the machine in for repair 4-5 times. It has cost me hundreds of dollars in repairs. This last time I was told the repair bill would be between $500 to $1000 dollars without any guarantees. This machine has been lovingly taken care of with soft water and regular maintanence. It was used only in our home to make 2-3 coffees per day. I could not possibly recommend this machine to anyone. When it worked it made great coffee but it was just so unreliable. I bought a saeco at about the same time for the office. It is used much more and maintained less. It has been trouble free. My next machine will definately be a Saeco. I am not connected with either company in any way.

      Your experiences are so important for other people to know which machine will best meet their needs and it would be great if you could write up a review over there as well. If not, no worries — thanks for taking the time to write here :)

      However, for me the same goes (word for word) for Saeco Xelsis. Ditto the same experience. The only diff is that Jura covers you for two years and Saeco for only one. It seems these damn machine are designed to disintegrate in their third year.
