General info

1.weight

4kg

14kg

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.
2.warranty period

2

2

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
3.thickness

265mm

290mm

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.
4.volume

15741cm³

23171cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
5.Uses ground coffee
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
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.
6.width

200mm

235mm

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

Components

1.Has a commercial steam wand
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
It comes with a commercial style steam wand as opposed to a pannarello steam wand. These are harder to master but can allow you to produce better, richer milk froth.
2.Has a steam wand
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
3.Has a 58mm portafilter
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
A 58mm portafilter is the most common size in the industry, offering a greater range of accessories to purchase such as portafilter baskets and tampers.
4.Has an integrated grinder
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
5.Has anti-burn steam wand
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
Steam wands are a fairly common source of burns when using espresso machines. An anti-burn steam wand has a lining inside that prevents the wand from getting scalding hot.
6.Has cup warmer
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
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 integrated filter
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
2.Has a hot water outlet
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
3.Has a removable water tank
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
4.water tank capacity

1l

2.18l

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
5.Has direct water connection
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
The coffee machine can connect directly to the water supply. This ensures you never have to refill the machine with water.

Maintenance

1.Indicates when drip tray is full
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.
2.Has cleaning alert
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
The machine alerts you when it requires cleaning.
3.Has dry puck feature
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
At the end of the extraction process, all moisture is removed from the puck. This allows you to easily tap out the coffee from the portafilter afterwards, reducing mess and the need to clean it as often.
4.Prevents overheating
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
It has an internal fuse/thermal sensors which prevents the machine from overheating.

Features

1.Has a 3-way valve
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
A 3-way solenoid valve relieves the portafilter of pressure and moisture after the extraction. This produces a dry puck which can easily be removed afterwards. It also means that you don’t have to wait for the pressure to equalise, so that you can make back-to-back coffees.
2.programmable buttons

0

0

These buttons can be programmed for different types of coffee such as an espresso, doppio or ristretto. This means once you have mastered a particular style of coffee, you can get it the same every time.
3.Has a shot timer
Gaggia Gran Gaggia
Rancilio Silvia V3
The time taken to pull an espresso shot is one of four key elements, and should be around 19-22 seconds. Once you have the grind, dose and tamp correct, you can use the shot clock to time the pull perfectly.
