One question, though. Right now, the machine is on my counter using the internal tank and when I use the hot water dispenser I got a lot of steam along with the water. It works, but it makes quite a mess and quite a noise. What's the deal?
I only slightly open the hot water valve and never lock the lever when dispensing. As the previous user said, hot water is dispensed from the steam boiler, so it's superheated from the boiler set to well above boiling temp; a very common design unless you have something like a GS/3 that mixes hot and cold

Thank you! This is the detail I was missing. The Breville Oracle Touch dispenses at 175f approx and I was surprised by this one. Not a big deal, it's easy enough to work around.
