Features
  • Additional Upgrades: You are now able to adjust the steam boiler temperature at a range of 265ºF – 285ºF, adjust shot length and receive a snazzy dose trimming tool as one of the included accessories.
  • Pulse Pre-Infusion: The 15 bar pump first pulses to expand the grinds before extraction begins, providing a balanced espresso shot.
  • Programmable Options: Enjoy customizing your perfect cup at the perfect time of day by programming the shot volume and temperature, auto start, clean cycle and clock.
  • Advanced Options: If you can’t get enough customization in your life, the advanced options allow you to customize pre-infusion length and power, steam temperature, machine audio, maintenance alerts and temperature units as well as water hardness and shot length. Phew! Now that’s some customization!
  • Love at First Sight: This upgraded machine features many of the things we already love about the previous model: Dual stainless steel boilers and Italian pumps for simultaneous shot extraction, milk frothing and optimal pressure. Heated group head for maintaining thermal stability and an electronic PID for temperature control. And lets not forget the backlit LCD, espresso shot clock, pressure gauge, hot water spout, hidden drop down swivel foot and 360º swivel steam arm.
    • Pros
      • Gold Standard: The Dual Boiler meets four key elements: Limiting maximum extraction pressure, low pressure pre-infusion, consistent extraction temperature and simultaneous extraction and frothing.
      • Longer Manufacturer Warranty: This updated version comes with a 2 year limited product warranty, versus the one year warranty offered on the previous model.
    • Cons
      • Muscle Up!: With grounds tamped and ready for extraction, the portafilter requires a little more muscle to lock in place.
  • How Does it Compare?
    This updated version of the Dual Boiler has the same overall functionality of the previous model, but with adjustable steam boiler temperature and in home descaling. The Breville Dual Boiler weighs approximately 30 pounds.
