• A short power cord is provided to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
• Longer, detachable power supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised
in their use.
• If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating should be at least as great as the electrical rating
of the appliance. If the appliance is provided with 3 - wire, grounding type cord, the extension should be a
GROUNDING TYPE 3 – WIRE CORD. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the
counter-top or table top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.
• Your product is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having one blade wider than
the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert
the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to
replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.

is the technology being used to simplify the
preparation of a good espresso using just a
few simple actions, thanks to the adoption
of the “serving” (individual pre-packed doses
containing 7 grams of ground coffee that
has been pressed and hermetically sealed
between two fine layers of filter paper).
