2.thickness

380mm

356mm

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.height

450mm

393mm

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

336mm

381mm

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

15kg

8.16kg

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.
6.volume

57456cm³

53304.95cm³

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.

5.Has PID controller
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
Philips Saeco Vienna
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

2.Has one touch cappuccino
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
Philips Saeco Vienna
With one press of a button you can create a cappuccino.
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.
4.Has a pre-infusion function
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
Philips Saeco Vienna
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.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Philips Saeco Royal Gran Crema
Philips Saeco Vienna
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
