Rancilio, the Italian espresso coffee maker that revolutionized the art of coffee making with the first espresso coffee machine in the year 1927, has never looked back ever since. Their recent offering, the Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine V3, is a state-of-the-art espresso machine which retains all the characteristics of its forebears, the Silvia Espresso product line, which was an instant hit and made it to the top of the popularity charts with the connoisseurs of good espresso coffee makers and drinkers alike.
The new version of the Rancilio Silvia espresso machine is a very durable device which has been launched with user-friendly optimized improvements as noted below:
The Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine weighs around 32 lbs and comes with dimensions of 11.25″ length x 9.25″ breadth x 13.25″ height.
The machine’s exterior is accentuated with a chic steel finish and is ornamented with a control panel which contains 4 articulated and labeled buttons along with a beautiful dial.
The machine is made with highly non-degradable stainless steel sheets as well as top class fittings and tubings, and stainless steel nuts and bolts to guarantee longer lasting stress free quality operation of the product.
The Steam Wand is made of excellent quality commercial grade chrome plating with a newly developed tip which aids in supplying sufficient amount of steam for creating those wonderful frothy espressos or steaming hot boiling water for your powdered milk or tea requirements. It is now longer and multi-directional than its predecessors and is far more flexible in utilizing with different kinds of jars or pitchers.
The Portafilter or Brew Group has been made from Brass and is chrome plated for enabling even distribution of heat and water which is an inherent part in creating the magic of espresso coffees. It is fitted with 3 thermostats for controlling the espresso and steam temperature as well as protecting the boiler from overheating due to too much steam pressure. Now, you can easily program the machine from milk frothing or coffee brewing at the flick of a button. It also features a three-way solenoid valve with the Pressure Release System for easy cleaning, maintenance and relieving excess pressure of the unit after the coffee making process is over.
The water container is positioned at the back of the unit for easy access for refilling. A cup warmer tray is sited on top of the machine while the removable drip tray is placed right under the Steam Wand and Portafilter outlet.
Some of the weaker points of the Rancilio Silvia espresso machine are that, it takes time to learn how to efficiently operate it, but once you do learn, then it is just a piece of cake to handle. The other point is that, it takes nearly 30 minutes to warm up to the desired level. So it is important to keep it in mind that you have to start half an hour before you want your coffee and all goes well thereafter.
Having this Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine V3 is truly worth it. Thus, it is high time to grab this wonderful espresso coffee machine.
