General info

1.thickness

420mm

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.

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.

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

280mm

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

43512cm³

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
Philips Saeco Xelsis Evo
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.

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.

Philips Saeco Xelsis Evo

2.milk frother capacity

0.5l

A larger integrated frother means it is possible to create more frothed milk for use in coffee-based drinks such as cappuccinos.
3.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Philips Saeco Xelsis Evo
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.
4.number of grind settings

8

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.

Miscellaneous

1.Uses ground coffee
Philips Saeco Xelsis Evo
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.
