I was set on a profitec 700, now I see the Bianca, and I can get it $400 cheaper.....I just don't know if I'll use the profile feature.

I think Rockets make some pretty great machines. If steam pressure is the limiting factor, you can always adjust the pressure of the steam boiler. Normally, the pressure tolerances are more than double for the machine, so raising it .25 - .5 bar wouldn't hurt anything and it would certainly increase the amount of steam present within the tank. You could also get a different steam wand tip as that can make a HUGE difference.

They are great but the premium for what you get is just not doing it for me to be honest. You can find several out of the box machines that out perform them or are on par for less money. Hard to ignore...

Well, YOU may not know if you will use it, but I DO KNOW that you would!
Seriously, you will not regret a Bianca.
