General info

1.thickness

360mm

496mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
2.weight

10.5kg

10.8kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
3.height

375mm

369mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.width

285mm

266mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.volume

38475cm³

48684.38cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Components

DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
Miele CM5200

2.Has an integrated grinder
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
Miele CM5200
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
3.Cup clearance is adjustable
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
Miele CM5200
An adjustable cup clearance is useful when you wish to use larger cups and mugs, such as when making a latte macchiato.
4.Has a steam wand
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
Miele CM5200
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
5.dump box capacity

14

11

The machine automatically deposits the used coffee grounds or pods into the dump box after extraction. The dump box capacity shows how many drinks you can create before it is full.
6.Has cup warmer
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
Miele CM5200
With a cup warmer you can heat the cups before pulling your espresso so that it doesn't go cold quickly, which affects the taste and quality. It also means that you don’t have to manually heat them using hot water.

Water source

1.Has a removable water tank
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
Miele CM5200
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
2.water tank capacity

1.8l

1.8l

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
3.Has a hot water outlet
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
Miele CM5200
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
4.Has integrated filter
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
Miele CM5200
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
5.Has PID controller
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
Miele CM5200
A PID controller controls the temperature of the boiler electronically. It offers a far greater degree of accuracy and consistency than a regular, mechanical thermostat used to control temperature. This is very important as a temperature of around 92°C to 96°C is key to pulling the perfect espresso.
6.Water tank is transparent
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
Miele CM5200
With a transparent water tank you can easily see when it needs to be filled up. This is important as attempting to make an espresso with an empty tank can damage the machine.

4.Can brew and steam simultaneously
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
Miele CM5200
With a double boiler or heat exchanger system, you can brew and steam milk at the same time. This has an advantage over single boiler machines where you have to wait between brewing and steaming for the temperature to adjust.
5.Has a pre-infusion function
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
Miele CM5200
With a pre-infusion function you get a low pressure of water before it ramps up to around 9 bar of pressure. This gently expands the grinds to get a smooth extraction and to help prevent channeling in the cake.

Miscellaneous

1.Uses ground coffee
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
Miele CM5200
Ground coffee, especially if freshly roasted and ground, results in much better quality coffee than the kind of results you get with pods or capsules.
