Fully Automatic

Hey Everyone! New here!

Here's what I'm looking for:
  1. Fully Automatic (I don't have time for manual)
  2. Preferably a larger resevoir (currently the one I have is less than a bottle of water 16.9 oz)
  3. Up to a Double Pull, but also enjoy Americano, and Cappucino (not required)
  4. Budget $800 but would prefer closer to the $500-$700 range.
I have these things: A grinder, and Milk steamer/frother.

I tried out a Nespresso Vertuo Plus before realizing they were still in a patent phase, AND their coffee is produced/packaged WAY ahead of time. I swapped out with an Essenza Mini, and it's ridiculously loud and has an awful water drip with a tiny reservoir.

I've been researching but all of the information/ratings/reviews, etc is oh so confusing!

One I've been eyeing is below (but I have reservations about paying $500+ for a plastic made machine) :

De'Longhi Magnifica S ECAM22.110.B​

Thank you in advance!

I felt the same about all of the fully automatic machines and their plastic construction; however, mine has been working great for a year and a half. I did not get the De'Longhi though so I can't speak to their reliability.
