Videos | Maintenance | How to Backflush your E61 Espresso Machine

If you have an automatic or semi-automatic espresso machine with a brew pressure release (also called a three-way release or solenoid) valve, you'll need to backflush it regularly by closing off the portafilter and forcing detergent and water through the system. In this video, Dane shows us how to perform backflushing on the Rocket Giotto Premium.

Other models that require this maintenance are the Quick Mill series, the Rancilio Silvia, The Musica & Oscar by Nuova Simonelli, the Mini-Vivaldi & Vivaldi S1 by La Spaziale, Alex II & Duetto II by Izzo and the Rocket Cellini, among others.
