Features & Functionality of the Rocket Espresso Cellini Premium Plus with PID

  • Hard-Working Boiler: The insulated 1.8 liter copper boiler with two lead free end plates work to maintain thermal retention and brew your espresso at the ideal temperature every time.
  • Durable Case: The highly durable case is constructed of AISI 304 stainless steel.
  • E-61 Brew Head: Brew your favorite espresso blend on this highly sought-after brew head.
  • Pre-Infusion: Both the Rocket Cellini & Giotto Premium Plus with PID boast a dual pre-infusion system that provides a smooth espresso extraction, as well as exceptional body and crema.
  • Cup Rack: Removable cup rack is included and can be easily installed in the comfort of your own home.
  • Removable Water Reservoir: Refill the 98-ounce water tank by removing it, or simply lift the lid and refill from a pitcher.
  • Warning Light: A handy light located at the bottom left corner of the machine will let you know when the water level is low and when the machine is ready to brew.
  • PID: The masterfully hidden PID provides additional temperature control while not overshadowing the Cellini’s beauty.
  • Dual Barometers: Dual pressure gauges at the front of the machine allow you to monitor the brew and steam pressure while creating your perfect cup.
Pros
  • Anti-bake Wand - The cool-touch technology and internal insulation makes cleaning the steam wand a cinch!
  • Modern Marvel - The high grade stainless steel and sleek design may have your guests thinking you’re collecting art in your kitchen.
  • Powerful Steaming - Create excellent milk texture that any barista would be proud to call their own.
Cons
  • Heated Wand - While the anti-burn steam wand technology is ideal for cleaning leftover milk after frothing, it does not guarantee the wand will be cool to the touch. Try to avoid skin contact immediately after use.
  • Muscle Required - The water reservoir is removable, but definitely requires effort to completely detach from the machine.
  • Degree Measurement - We love the new PID, but Westerner’s may find measuring the degrees in celsius a bit confusing. Luckily, a handy temperature conversion chart is included for those partial to fahrenheit.

How Does it Compare? The Cellini Premium Plus with PID operates and functions exactly like its V2 predecessor, but with an integrated PID for temperature control.
Tips and Tricks A few helpful hints about the PID display:
  • When the PID display indicates "off," the heating element is also off and will not heat in this mode.
  • A visible dot will display at the bottom right corner of the PID controller when the heating element is being powered.

Forest asked: Hi Sir/Madam,

Two questions:
1) Are there temper, single filter holder, and double filter holder in the box when I buy this machine?
2) Is that a simple temper or a good metal temper?

Thanks,

Teri KStaff: Yes, this Rocket Cellini V3 includes a tamper, along with single and double portafilters and baskets. The included tamper is an aluminum model that is a medium weight and works for most folks, so I would suggest giving it a try before you invest in an alternative option. Jun 30, 2014

Manjola U asked: I just got this machine today and cannot say hi excited I have been to the idea of it. I tried making espresso with already ground coffee, but it did not come out good and no cream at all and I am suspecting that the grind might have something to do with it. What do you think? What grinder, without breaking the wallet (already emptied it buying the machine), would you recommend?
I also tried frothing milk, but this also ams out without any bubbles. I have already watched the videos you have on milk frothing, but again, any further advice would be helpful
Last but not least, the PID? It was already set for 121 Celsius (I am from Europe, so this is actually the one easy thing) and reading the manual it would appear to be a good tempt for the boiler. Any further thoughts into how the temperature can impact the espresso quality (I love the velvety creamy one) or the milk frothing?

Sorry for the too many questions, it's just that the machine is quite new and there aren't many reviews and or tips about it yet.
Thanks, Manjola

Teri KStaff: Yes, the Rocket machines like this Cellini will absolutely require a good quality grinder for best results and will not perform well using preground coffee. At minimum, I would say to consider the Baratza Virtuoso grinder, or move up to something like the Rancilio Rocky. For milk frothing, the biggest tip is just to practice. For this machine, I would recommend using a 20 oz frothing pitcher filled about halfway full. The PID is advantageous because you are able to play around with different temperatures for best results depending on the coffee you are using. I would wait until you get a good quality grinder and get the grind dialed in (so for a double shot, look for 2 ounces of liquid to be extracted in 20-30 seconds) to adjust the temperature, though, as the coffee won't taste very good until the grind is dialed in. Keep practicing! May 16, 2014
