General info

1.warranty period

2

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

416mm

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.
3.weight

16.33kg

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.
4.width

317mm

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

370mm

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

48792.64cm³

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

Components

1.Has burr grinder
Gaggia Platinum
A burr grinder works in such a way that you can get a consistent, uniform size of grind each time, which is one of the key aspects of getting great tasting espresso. On the other hand an inferior blade grinder often leaves you with an inconsistent grind.
2.Has an integrated grinder
Gaggia Platinum
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
3.has a touch screen
Gaggia Platinum
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
4.Cup clearance is adjustable
Gaggia Platinum
An adjustable cup clearance is useful when you wish to use larger cups and mugs, such as when making a latte macchiato.
5.Has a steam wand
Gaggia Platinum
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
6.dump box capacity

13

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.

Water source

1.Has a removable water tank
Gaggia Platinum
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
2.water tank capacity

1.7l

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
3.Has integrated filter
Gaggia Platinum
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
4.Has a hot water outlet
Gaggia Platinum
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
5.Water tank is transparent
Gaggia Platinum
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.

Maintenance

1.Has cleaning alert
Gaggia Platinum
The machine alerts you when it requires cleaning.
2.Automatic milk circuit cleaning
Gaggia Platinum
The machine automatically cleans the milk circuit, meaning that the machine requires a minimal amount of cleaning.
3.Prevents overheating
Gaggia Platinum
It has an internal fuse/thermal sensors which prevents the machine from overheating.
4.Indicates when drip tray is full
Gaggia Platinum
With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.
5.Automatic coffee circuit rinse
Gaggia Platinum
The machine automatically cleans the coffee circuit, meaning that the machine requires a minimal amount of cleaning.
6.Has sleep mode
Gaggia Platinum
After a certain period of being idle, the device will switch to a sleep mode to conserve power.

Features

1.programmable buttons

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.
2.Has integrated milk frother
Gaggia Platinum
With an integrated milk frother, the machine can automatically produce frothed milk for use in cappuccinos and other drinks.
3.Has one touch cappuccino
Gaggia Platinum
With one press of a button you can create a cappuccino.
4.Has a pre-infusion function
Gaggia Platinum
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.
5.number of grind settings

3

A higher number of grind settings gives you more flexibility when choosing the fineness of your ground coffee. The particle size is important as a grind which is too coarse can produce weak tasting espresso, whereas a grind which is too fine can lead to a bitter taste.
6.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Gaggia Platinum
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.

Miscellaneous

1.Uses ground coffee
Gaggia Platinum
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.
