The Quick Mill Silvano is the culmination of a long collaboration between the internationally known Italian espresso machine manufacturer and their U.S. distributor. The result is one of the most feature-rich entry level espresso machines on the market. This machine is the most affordable PID featured machine that we offer, and with the added features of a dedicated thermoblock for steaming and a 3-Way Solenoid valve, it costs hundreds of dollars less than other similar featured machines.

Highlighted Features

  • 600 Watt coffee heater and 1000 Watt steam heat bank.
  • Adjustable PID controller with programmable offset for Coffee Boiler that is Fahrenheit or Celsius capable.
  • 3-Way group solenoid valve which de-pressurizes the grouphead allowing the user to remove the portafilter immediately after pulling a shot.
  • Steam bank can be individually turned off to conserve power; steam bank heats up in 2 minutes.

Standard Features

  • Two vibratory pumps with klixon thermal fuse for overheat protection
  • New adjustable expansion valve, located under the group. No need to remove the shell to adjust
  • Pump pressure gauge
  • Large, pull-out stainless drip tray with 46 ounce capacity
  • Solid state relay
  • Swivel steam arm with 1 hole steam tip
  • Uses E61 8mm group gasket
  • Removable drip tray and lid
  • Cup warming tray
  • Three stage power switch allows user to fill internal boiler without sending power to the heating element (prevents damage upon initial start up)
  • GICAR branded electronic water level control and reacts to a .02 of C of temperature change in the coffee boiler
  • Extremely large stainless steel drip tray which can be easily (slides out with pull of handle) removed for cleaning

Accessories:

  • 1 Double Spout Portafilter
  • Single Insert Basket
  • Double Insert Basket
  • Blank for Backflushing
  • We recommend purchasing a 58 mm Prima Coffee Tamper from the drop down menu above

Pros

  • One of the most feature-rich machines at this price point from a high-quality manufacturer.
  • Dedicated steam bank allows plenty of steaming power on demand as well as the ability to steam and pull shots at the same time.
  • Small footprint leaves more countertop space (10.5" W x 13" D x 16" H)
  • Includes PID, a feature rarely included on a home machine.

Cons

  • Size of the water reservoir (2 Liters) isn't as big as the larger Quick Mill models.
  • Boiler size (.7 L) wouldn't be able to handle the production needs of a cafe, thus limiting it to a home setting.

Quick Mill

Quick Mill is an established Italian appliance manufacturer whose roots date back to 1945. In 1999, Quick Mill expanded its production to include high quality home espresso machines. Quick Mill's machines have made a name for themselves amongst home espresso fans in the U.S. due to their beautiful stainless design and simple operation. While the aesthetics catch the user's eye at first, the first-class build quality and features of Quick Mill machines ensure customer satisfaction for the long haul. The majority of Quick Mill machines feature the famous E-61 grouphead, which helps ensure maximum temperature stability and allows a passive pre-infusion to soften the coffee and better ensure an evenly brewed espresso.
