Yep, exactly! Francesco knows what he's doing! Do you mind sharing some info on your PID? Mine is 220V and I was going to pull the plug (ha!) on a plug adapter and a 110V heating element from Brooks

Does it make sense to buy a used Rancilio Silvia?

Ha! I thought so. {image} Where else would you find such an immaculate example to add to your collection? (From Francesco Ceccarelli.) Congratulations, Vlad! That is the right 1.0. I just pulled a shot on my Caravel 1.0, which is connected to a PID for excellent temperature control. The offset is about 10°F

You bring up a good point, and I actually never really looked into lever machines with a boiler. Something like this: {link} Is the main difference between 8 cup and 16 cup models boiler size? My wife complained about Crossland CC1's size and ugliness, La Pavoni looks great and doesn't take up too much space
