Overview

Breville collected the comment cards and heard the outcries, but we know you provided a polite suggestion. They artfully responded by introducing the new, updated Breville Dual Boiler. Now you can enjoy brewing and descaling in the comfort of your own home. You no longer need to take your machine to the pros for a simply cleaning, which saves you time, effort and possible maintenance fees. Need I say more?

Features & Functionality of the Breville Dual Boiler BES920XL Espresso Machine

  • 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 version, but with adjustable steam boiler temperature and additional control over shot extraction.

Can you elaborate on the portafilter? What size is it? 58mm? Crome plated brass? Is a bottomless portafilter an option? Will it take an "aftermarket" portafilter basket such as a VST or others? Thanks!

Is there a clear, complete list of the features this 920 has that the 900 does not?
Jimmy on Feb 6, 2014
Best Answer: We have not compiled a list for the differences between these two models, but the biggest difference is that the 920 offers at home descaling. It also offers temperature adjustment on the steam boiler and a two year warranty, along with advanced programing and higher wattage for a quicker heat up time. Hope this helps!

Love my BES920Review by John Barter

Looked at a lot of espresso machines, my old Sunbeam was running out of steam and had along life, had read all the reviews on the BES900 and was quite impressed and as luck would have it the new 920 model was out when I was ready to buy. Have had the machine for a month now and love it, I have teamed it with the smart grinder. Took a few hours to work out the grind and tamp pressure, now coming out just the way I like. Highly Recommend and thanks girls on your reviews, helped with my choice!!
