Where and how should you use the DeLonghi America BCO430?
While this coffee-cum-espresso machine is a gem when it comes to its functionality, one must understand the restrictions of using it. The proper maintenance and the proper usage can maximize its lifespan, while taking this casually as just any other product can let you.
It is safest when you use this at home because that way, it has to undergo less pressure and also the workload will be a lot less, compared to what would have been the case, had this been used in a café for a commercial purpose.
In a café, the machine has to be kept running all the time in order to meet the demands and the orders of the customers, hence the 24-hour programmable timer would have no use, whereas, if you use it at your own place, you can always program a specific time and this machine will deliver you the best coffee when it is time, being asleep all the other time. Using it home, ensures the maximum maintenance, when compared to using it at the café,
however, you still need to maintain it properly, even when you’re keeping the machine at your own place. So, considering all the above points, it is recommended that this machine should be used for domestic purposes only, to entertain the occasional guests and of course, yourself, at times.

- While the Ninja Coffee Bar seems to enjoy the edge over DeLonghi America when it comes to the sizes and the carafe system, the DeLonghi clearly outsmarts its counterpart when it comes to the quality of the coffee.
- The Custom Brews feature which includes brewing of different types is present in the Ninja Coffee Bar, the DeLonghi espresso machine again proves superior as far as the quality of brewing and harnessing the aroma of the coffee is concerned, though it lacks the different brewing modes.
- While both the machines enjoy the built-in frother feature in them, the Ninja Coffee Bar rises to the top when it comes to its Advanced Thermal Flavor Extraction Technology compared to the ordinary Flavor Savor Brewing system of the DeLonghi America and the Auto-IQ One-Touch Intelligence is a bonus for the Ninja Coffee Bar.
