Streamline your home espresso experience with the Nuova Simonelli Oscar II in Open Box. A heat-exchange boiler design gives you side-by-side brewing and steaming (saving you time), while timed single and double shot buttons free up your hands for cappuccino creation (and consistency for those early morning espressos). And with convenient features like a large water reservoir, deep drip tray, level portafilter, featherable steam lever, extra-long steam wand and 4-inch cup clearance, your java job is that much simpler.

  • Heat Exchange Boiler: By keeping the boiler at 1.2 bars of steam pressure, the Oscar II flash heats water by running it through an internally-routed pipe.
  • Shot Time Programming: Once your shots taste just right, setting the extraction time for single and double shots lets you eliminate a variable and frees you up to focus on steaming milk.
  • Articulated Steam Wand: Extra-long, ball-jointed and capped with a 4-hole steam tip, the Oscar II wand is designed for serious milk steaming.
  • Professional Portafilter: The Oscar II's 58mm portafilter sits flat on countertops and features heavy duty chrome-plated brass construction.
  • Cup Warmer: The Oscar II's cup warmer is plastic instead of stainless (no scratching!) and wide enough for multiple shot glasses or a couple latte mugs.
    • Pros
      • Winning Workflow: The small touches really make this machine, the shot-timed buttons and ergonomics make it a joy to pull shots on.
      • NSF-rated: The above point makes a lot of sense given that the Oscar II is NSF-rated for light commercial use.
      • Strong Steam: The Oscar II has better steam than almost every home machine we've tested.
    • Cons
  • Tall: The top mounted steam lever adds extra height to the Oscar II and makes it a tight squeeze under some cabinets.
  • Fit and Finish: Exposed screws on the cup warmer and a loose drip grate take away from the otherwise great modern looks of the machine.
  • Tips and Tricks

    The steam wand on the Oscar II has quite a bit more oomph than what we've seen on other home espresso machines. If you're having trouble frothing milk with the switch fully flipped, try holding it partially open for a more controllable stream of steam.
