General info

1.weight

4.72kg

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

292mm

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.height

318mm

340mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.Uses ground coffee
Krups XP4600
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.volume

18849.77cm³

23171cm³

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

Components

Krups XP4600
Rancilio Silvia V3

2.Has a steam wand
Krups XP4600
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
Krups XP4600
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 cup warmer
Krups XP4600
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.Water tank is transparent
Krups XP4600
Rancilio Silvia V3
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.
2.Has integrated filter

Rancilio Silvia V3
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
3.Has a removable water tank
Krups XP4600
Rancilio Silvia V3
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
4.Has a hot water outlet
Krups XP4600
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.
5.water tank capacity

0.88l

2.18l

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.

Maintenance

1.Has dry puck feature
Krups XP4600
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.

Features

1.Has a 3-way valve
Krups XP4600
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

2

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.
