DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 Review | The Perennial Entry-Level Favourite

As you know, I’m a big fan of bullshit-free marketing: I love it when manufacturers clearly state what you can expect from their coffee maker or super-automatic machine. Even if these expectations are deliberately set low.

As you know, I’m a big fan of bullshit-free marketing: I love it when manufacturers clearly state what you can expect from their coffee maker or super-automatic machine. Even if these expectations are deliberately set low.

The expectations could hardly be set lower than with the DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110: this super-automatic machine costs around $551.96 and at first glance looks like a toy.

But loyal Coffeeness fans will know it’s enjoyed classic status in my super-automatic espresso machine reviews for years and that I repeatedly use it as a reference device.

Best in the entry-level category

DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110

Not the best fully automatic machine, but the best in its class.

Exceptionally affordable

Very compact

Well thought-out details

Easy to clean

Good cup results

No display

No stainless steel

Why? Because it can do so much more than its price tag suggests. Because it doesn’t try to pretend it’s a high-tech device. And because it focuses on what matters in this category.

Or to paraphrase DeLonghi: “What more could coffee lovers want from their first super-automatic espresso machine?”

I normally feel like constantly arguing with Stiftung Warentest, the German consumer association, and slapping them in the face with my own reviews for every piece of trash they come out with. However, in the case of the DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 super-automatic, for a change, we agree:

This machine frequently achieves high rankings among coffee makers with manual milk frothing systems and impresses with its numerous setting options and consistent cup results. Of course, we don’t even have to begin discussing the price.

As we’re used to from DeLonghi (and many other manufacturers), the Magnifica, too, is a bit confusing with its long name and cryptic codes which point to there being different types.

As always, it all comes down to the letter at the end – which doesn’t have a significant impact. The one and the same machine is available as the SB version in silver-black, the B version in black or the S version in silver.

But don’t let yourself be fooled: just because it says silver, doesn’t mean there’s any stainless-steel trim. On this machine, everything which can be made of plastic, is plastic.

Unfortunately, this video is only available in German.

If you really want to confuse yourself, try comparing the DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 with the following models from the same brand family:

From just a quick price comparison and an equally quick glance at the technical specifications, you’ll see that there’s practically no reason at all to spend more money than what you pay for the ECAM 22.110. Let the following key facts melt on your tongue:

  • Conical stainless-steel burr grinder with 13 settings
  • 5-step coffee strength adjustment
  • Precise temperature adjustment
  • Adjustable cup spout: between 3.5 and 5.5 inches
  • Minimum espresso fill level: 40 ml (about 1.4 fl oz) with exact upward calibration

I can only parrot DeLonghi: what more could you ask for from a coffee machine for beginners? Absolutely nothing! These benchmarks often aren’t even offered by significantly more expensive machines.

I recently uploaded a special video about the adventurously low price of the DeLonghi Magnifica to my YouTube channel:

Unfortunately, this video is only available in German.

It’s clear that the DeLonghi Magnifica’s price does force you to compromise somewhere, though. For me, the most important aspects are these:

  • Completely made of plastic
  • No display
  • Many setting options – but not very intuitive
  • The grinder has a few problems at the finest settings

If you expected me to categorize the manual milk frothing nozzle as a disadvantage, then I have to disappoint you: even though the basic concept of super-automatic espresso machines is based on absolute laziness, I love working with milk frothing nozzles.

That’s because there’s simply no better way to control the consistency of milk foam. The more experience you gain, the more you’ll learn to love these attachments too.

If you really don’t think you can manage something like that, I recommend you take a look at the DeLonghi Dinamica ECAM350, which has singlehandedly reinvented the mid-range segment of super-automatic coffee machines at $999.95.

I’ve got a video guide about the Magnifica price range for you here too:

Unfortunately, this video is only available in German.

Setting Up the DeLonghi Magnifica – Difficult Beginnings…

Like manual milk frothing nozzles, super-automatic machines without displays can initially be daunting. Because how the hell are you supposed to find the perfect settings when you can’t properly control every parameter?

DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 with Arne

The fact is: if you want to adjust the water quantity or temperature, you’ll have to invest a little time and get to know your machine. I think that’s how it should be for an entry-level model, however, because once you get the hang of the ECAM 22.110 you’ll then be able to set up any successor model in your kitchen with your eyes closed.

Don’t Throw Away Your Operating Instructions!

Even if you belong to the category of people who discard the operating instructions faster than you do the outer packaging, in the case of the ECAM 22.110, you won’t want to put them all too far out of reach.

If you want to set the temperature, for example, according to the instructions, you first have to turn the machine off, but leave the main power switch on, before duly pressing a series of icons and buttons.

Although this procedure is normal for many other coffee makers and super-automatics too, beginners always find it challenging. That’s why it’s worth saving the DeLonghi ECAM 22.110’s operating instructions as a PDF to your smartphone or tablet – especially at first.

Adjusting the Grinder – Finer Points the Real Crunch

Entry-level models with 13 grinder settings are typical for DeLonghi, but certainly not typical within that price range. Unfortunately, the two finest levels are of little use, as the grinder becomes overwhelmed and frequently blocks up.

DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 brew group removed

The pump then, too, obviously fails to generate the necessary water pressure needed to force the liquid through the compressed coffee puck and extract the perfect espresso.

However, the ECAM 22.110 is saved by the fact that the other 11 settings are sufficient. The finest usable setting is obviously precisely matched to the parameters of the machine.

As always, you adjust these settings using the dial inside the bean compartment. Don’t forget you can only do this while the grinder is running, to ensure it engages.

In terms of noise, this machine is perfectly acceptable for a stainless-steel model – and definitely quieter than the roaring ESAM 3300 Magnifica model.

Espresso – Close to Portafilter Quality and Yet So Far

Like the grinder, the other DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 setting values for espresso are similarly incorrect or suboptimal as per barista norms. By the standards of this coffee machine, however, the components interact so well that making a very convincing super-automatic espresso is possible.

DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 bean compartment preparing espresso

The minimum fill level of 40 ml (1.4 fl oz) is clearly too high. It shouldn’t normally exceed 25 ml (0.85 fl oz) for a single shot. But if we take this 40 ml as the basis for a double shot and adjust the temperature and amount of ground coffee to that, things look completely different.

You have the option of adjusting the coffee strength in five steps, i.e. by using more or less ground coffee. Again, the truth is: often even higher-quality models don’t offer this much freedom of choice. The Philips 3200 series super-automatic espresso machine, for example, only offers three levels and is around $100 less expensive.

Philips LatteGo latte espresso

Speaking of ground coffee: the bad habit still prevails among manufacturers to equip their super-automatic machines with a pre-ground coffee compartment – just in case you run out of beans.

As you know, I don’t think much of this feature at all and therefore practically never mention it. But since we are talking here about an entry-level machine, here’s my tip again:

Only use fresh, whole coffee beans sourced from small roasteries. That way you’ll get the best aromas and, by the by, also ensure that industrial beans gradually lose market share.

This is a development that, in my opinion, can’t come fast enough!

I generally recommend the following DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 settings for an espresso:

  • Fill level of 40 ml (1.4 fl oz) for a simple espresso (“1-cup espresso” button)
  • Coffee strength of 4 to 5 out of 5
  • Highest temperature
  • Third finest grind setting

If you want a Caffè Lungo, i.e. a longer extracted espresso with more water, there’s a button for that too. I wouldn’t bother using it, though.

For the best flavor, I always recommend an Americano, i.e. a properly extracted espresso which you fill up with hot water afterwards. How nice to also have a hot water function included on this machine.

This entails more work, but for quality beans and excellent aroma, it’s well worth it.

Milk Foam Become a Barista

For super-automatic machines without milk systems, there should actually be such a thing as point deductions in reviews – because the automation of all aspects of coffee preparation is part of the basic understanding of the category.

DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 milk foam latte

But as an old-school barista, I usually much prefer using a steam wand as a manual milk frother than an automatic milk foam system with hoses, nozzles and preset consistency. That’s because nothing better can top your latte macchiato or trendy flat white than hand-frothed milk.

The DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 offers you full control over:

  • Milk quantity
  • Milk foam consistency
  • Milk temperature

In other words, everything that really matters! Steam wands are also easy as pie to clean. Just briefly open the valve before and after foaming to release the steam, before rinsing out any milk residue from the nozzles. Then clean the outside with a cloth (set aside for this purpose) and you’re done.

Yes, I know – frothing milk manually is annoying because it takes a lot of practice to do well. But once you’ve got the hang of it, you can, for example, froth cocoa or a matcha latte directly in the milk pitcher or undertake some other adventurous experiments.

DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 manual steam wand

I must also point out, however, that the steam pressure produced by the DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 doesn’t come anywhere near the high values of decent espresso maschines.

But once again, as a beginner: you have no reference values, so just accept the idiosyncrasies of your super-automatic machine without questioning them. And that makes for better results!

Cleaning the DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110

It might have already become apparent that I consider the 22.110 to be a very well-thought-out coffee machine, which focuses on simplicity in all the right places. Cleaning is definitely one of them.

By the way, don’t be worried by claims from the German consumer association, Stiftung Warentest, who in this 2013 article reported that the heavy metal lead was released from the brew group of DeLonghi machines during descaling (sorry, only available in German).

DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 cleaning milk frothing nozzle

If you read carefully, the association firstly only examined a ridiculous five machines and secondly said itself that with an extra rinse after descaling, no more lead could be detected. What I hereby mean to say is: I’m sick of the completely exaggerated scare tactics used as clickbait for “concerned consumers”!

The fact is, when cleaning super-automatic machines there is always the possibility of something being released from somewhere. What exactly that is, we just don’t know. It’s also a fact that this should only encourage you to be even more careful when cleaning your machine.

Anyway, the 22.110 makes cleaning very easy. For starters there’s an in-built water filter which ensures the limescale problem is kept at bay, at least for a while. An obligatory cleaning program is also included. So providing you’re not too uninformed, a cleaning tablet and a few tips will usually help you get the job done quickly.

Cleaning the Brew Group

Unlike its direct competitor, the Krups EA8918 Evidence, the DeLonghi 22.110’s brew group can be easily removed and rinsed under running water after each day of use. All you have to do is open the hatch behind the water tank and then, in the ‘home’ position, remove the unit.

DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 removing the brew group

It pays to leave the brew group out to dry and the DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 open to ventilate a while. I especially recommend doing this before going on vacation, otherwise the damp conditions within the machine will see a unique “living” biotope develop inside.

Descaling Made Easy

Just because the DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 comes with a water filter, it doesn’t mean that you can go without descaling your machine. After all, limescale in water is fairly widespread, with few exceptions.

It’s therefore also important to program your DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 with your local water hardness right at the very beginning. This setting determines how often the machine needs to be descaled. For the exact steps involved during decalcifying, I recommend you take a look at the operating instructions again and, because different lights flash and a few things need to be done at each step, also read my separate article on decalcifying the DeLonghi Magnifica.

On average, allow for one descaling procedure per month – that’s surely doable!

Daily Cleaning Tasks – Quickly Completed to Great Effect

You should clean the water tank, coffee grounds container and drip tray every day – it doesn’t matter at first, whether this is by hand or in the dishwasher. However, plastic and dishwashers don’t get along well together in the long run (even though I know you don’t listen to the manufacturers in this regard anyway).

DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 water tank

While you can nicely clean both the drip tray and coffee grounds container with a sponge, some dishwashing liquid, and your hands, I’d be cautious when it comes to the water tank.

It’s sufficient to give the tank a good rinse with clear water and then leave it to thoroughly dry off. Nobody wants soapy coffee or creama that tastes of dishwashing liquid.

Removing the coffee grounds container and drip tray is very easy and can be done from the front. Both parts are quite small, which means you have to empty and rinse them more often anyway – and that’s good! I don’t want to know how rarely I’d empty the trash can if it never became full.

Faults With the DeLonghi Magnifica S – Find Help Here!

The fact I dedicate a whole subsection to troubleshooting should make it clear that there are certainly often problems with the DeLonghi Magnifica S. Because the model’s so popular, these issues are very often brought up online.

The nice thing, however, is that most of these challenges can be easily solved and don’t equate to points being deducted from the machine. That’s because most of the time they fall into the category of “beginner’s mistakes”.

Finding water in the coffee grounds container, for example, is not necessarily an indication of worn seals, but may mean instead that the coffee puck has been compressed a little too tightly. In this case, you should first adjust the grinder to a slightly coarser setting.

DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 coffee puck

But should a distinct puddle form – or water appears somewhere else it doesn’t belong within the machine – I would replace all the seals, if I were in your shoes. This is relatively easy to do and not as expensive as acquiring a whole new machine.

Speaking of buying things new: I strongly advise against buying secondhand DeLonghi Magnifica S machines. That’s because this entry-level model has far too much potential for wear and tear to be considered a bargain when buying it used.

The large amount of plastic also creates a fairly high level of static electricity, which can cause considerable coffee deposits to get stuck inside if hygiene standards have been lax. In the worst cases, you’ll purchase a mold-ridden machine – and end up paying more in the long run.

If the brew group is stuck, it’s clear that you’ve forgotten to turn the machine off at the (front) main power switch.  Only then does the brew group move into the ‘home’ position, enabling it to be removed. Don’t jiggle and jerk the unit around, that’ll only see you break the machine!

If any other error messages show, these usually refer to the fact that one or other of the containers are full and require emptying.

My Conclusion – I Love This Plastic Fantastic!

I’m always amazed that I consistently bestow the DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 with such high ratings – no matter how many new super-automatic machines end up on my counter for review.

By rights, such a “cheap” plastic shell of a machine should be treated with absolute contempt and promptly thrown into the nearest trash can. But beneath the ugly plastic housing, there’s actually a super-automatic machine which, functionally speaking, shouldn’t at all feel the need to hide behind larger models.

DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110 Arne thumbs up

What’s more, this machine is no joke, offering consumers great performance value for its price. DeLonghi knows that you’ll want to upgrade eventually – and even openly admits that.

Though I’m sure that in the case of this super-automatic machine for around $900, the desire to upgrade will be quite some way off in the future.

    Hey Arne, great review. I’ve just received my machine after deciding to go ahead once reading your review. My question – you mention “5-step coffee strength adjustment”, but my machine (ECAM Magnifica S 22.110 – same as in your pictures) has a dial with Min > Max, and around 35 dots around it. I’m confused, as you then talk about your espresso settings with strength being 4 to 5 out of 5. So where do I find this other setting ‘out of 5’ ?

    Cheers

    Hi Arne,

    Congrats on all these reviews. It’s really a great job that can help a lot of people.
    Right now (2020 black friday) both ECAM 22.110 and 23.420 are at same price (299eur).
    For coffee flavor and machine quality (durability) what is your opinion?
    I saw that you reviewed 3.5/5 for the 23.420 but were you considering the performance for the price? (because this one is usually more expensive).
    Well, to sum it up, if you had this deal in front of you, which one would you choose?

    We purchased a Delonghi Magnifica’s 2 years ago. We choose it because it was advertised we can use it with beans or with already ground coffee.
    Useless to say that it never worked with ground coffee. After 2 years the water pump got clogged. We bought a new pump for replacement but than we realised the screws they used to close the machine are made to be open only by a professional screwdriver. The internet is full of reviews about the pump of these coffee machine. Beware when you buy it, it’s a short term investment.

    Hello Arne,
    I’ve been reading all your reviews and watching the videos, even though I don’t understand more than 2 words of German… I’m really keen on switching away from capsules and was going to buy this machine but then I saw the 21.117 which seems basically identical but I can currently get with a significant discount. Do you know this machine and is it at least equivalent to the 22.110? There are so many model numbers which appear to be the exact same that it becomes confusing to make a decision.

    Thank in advance and cheers f on Portugal!

    The DeLonghi 21.117 is identical in construction with the 22.110.B so if you find a good deal for one of them you can definitely buy it. The differences are only at the outside.

    Hello,

    Thanks for the amazing review.

    From my measurements of the temperature of the coffee in the cup is between 71-73 Celsius in the levels 3 and 4 (highest)

    When you say at the bottom of the comments that you are using high water temperature but not the highest I am assuming you are using level 3?

    Also another question when you say “Set the grinder to the finest setting that works. For me, that level was “3.” you mean the second dot? Because it has 13 grinding settings and the 3 is the second dot while the number 3 is 5.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Yvette, for coffee beans from Germany, I’ll just send you to my German espresso review page. The is unfortunately only available in German. I would recommend you the ECAM 22110. many Greetings

    Hi Arne
    Love your blog – you’re doing a great job!
    Just had a quick query for you. I am interested to purchase an entry-level bean to cup machine. The Delonghi ECAM 22.110 indeed looks really attractive. But I am also interested with the ESAM 4200 which I don’t believe you have reviewed yet. Which machine would you recommend between the two?
    Thanks a lot Arne
    Keep up the good work!
    Fabrice
