Induction Top Specs
The Little Guy team spent over two years working with electrical engineers and manufacturers to create an induction technology that will work with the Little Guy's solid 304 grade stainless steel boiler base. the Little Guy induction top uses a customized sensor system that engages with stainless steel where that other induction technology won't.
Five cooking settings, independent of the little guy setting, offer the use of many accouterments formerly unusable on standard induction cook tops. the Little Guy induction top is versatile far beyond making espresso with the Little Guy.
Additional features include
a built in alert, sounding at the start of the extraction touch screen controls an automatic cut out, in the event you forget to switch the induction top off at the end of brewing five independent heat settings that are ideal for suitable kettles and cookware. the surface area of the little guy induction top is smaller than an A4 page, ideal for small kitchens and traveling.
I have been pretty happy with this unit - I guess it is an old school espresso design with stainless steel construction, but it also means the unit gets very hot after it is done with the two-shot extraction and it isn't convenient to get it going for a second time. I have to wait about 40 minutes before it gets cool enough to touch. As a result, I usually only use it once a day in the shop - to get a good cup of coffee after lunch.
I would imagine if you were camping out or in a caravan away from home and need something to deliver very good quality coffee like what you are used to at home, this would be perfect. It is small and reasonably light. And you can use a gas stove if you don't have an electrical outlet.
I usually get a small 200g espresso pack from the Merlot cafe in Ferry Road ground to 4.0 on their grinder.
If I do sell this, I might look into getting a dual boiler Breville espresso machine. That lists for $1699 but seems to be reasonably well designed. Any reason why I shouldn't be looking at that?
I'll take some more pics of my Little Guy when I get back to the shop tomorrow.
Item: Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine with Rancilio Rocky Grinder and Base
Location: Sunbury, VIC.
Item Condition: Used but Perfect Working Condition
Reason for selling: Upgraded to Rocket Giotto Evoluzione II and Macap M4D
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
This is a V2 Rancilio Silvia with Auber Instruments PID modification. The PID keeps the temperatures much more stable, while the shot timer ensures perfect shots everytime.
Nearly all seals, thermostats etc have been changed by me over the last 3-4 years I have had this machine. It could do with the steam wand seal changing (including).
In great condition cosmetically with usual signs of use. Stainless would come up like new if someone had the time to spend polishing it.
The chrome trim around the brew head is flaking - usual for age of machine. These are held on by a couple of screws and available for $30-$40 from memory. My selling price has been adjusted accordingly.
Comes with many spare seals and parts (still in their original packaging), an expensive tamper that I cannot remember the brand / name of, the genuine stainless steel base (with knock box drawer), and the Rocky doser grinder (which I have done the sweeping mod to). Also includes Single and Double baskets, more aftermarket baskets (that I will have to dig up), and the naked portafilter.
I spent some time last week right before getting my new machine dialing everything in again and to be perfectly honest, had trouble justifying the new machine as it was making truly magnificent coffee. Fortunately for the buyer of this machine I already had paid for the new one.
Will not ship as it is heavy, fragile to a degree and I have no packaging materials.
It's all clean and emptied out at the moment, but if the buyer really wanted we could set it up and I can give you a run through.
Pickup from Sunbury, VIC.
