If a long extension cord is used, the marked
electrical rating of the extension cord must be
at least as great as the electrical rating of the
appliance. The extension cord should be a
grounding-type 3-wire cord, and the longer
cord should be arranged so that it will not
drape over the countertop or tabletop where
it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.

USING YOUR
ESPRESSO MACHINE
NOTE: If the water reservoir is empty or not
properly positioned, the unit will not function.
The Short , Long , and Manual
LEDs will
flash. Turn off the machine, fill the water reservoir,
and turn the machine back on.
Insert the plug into a power outlet. Press
the power button once to turn the espresso
machine on. All of the controls on the front
of the machine will flash while it’s
pre-heating. Lights will turn steady when
the unit is in ready mode (approximately
1 minute).
Important: The unit will not function unless
the water reservoir is properly in place.
Remove the lid of the water reservoir.
Using the handle, lift the water reservoir off
the base and fill with fresh, cold drinking
water. Replace the water reservoir on the
base, and cover with the lid. Using the
tracks as a guide, slide the water reservoir
back into position and push down firmly
to engage.
IMPORTANT: For first-time use or if the
machine has not been used for some time,
it is important that it is rinsed as follows:
Put the espresso machine on a dry, stable
countertop or other flat, sturdy surface

1. Using the lever, open the brew head, insert
a capsule, and close the brew head.
CAUTION: Scalding may occur if the brewing
head is opened during brewing cycle.
NOTE: As part of illy patented technology in the
iperEspresso capsule, the brewing process is
completely self-contained in the capsule and
does not get into the brew head. So there is no
need to rinse in between cycles as there will be
no transfer of flavour.
For optimal results, we recommend using the
long
button with the blue "Lungo"
iperEspresso capsule. Using this setting with
other iperEspresso varieties will alter the taste.

Clean inside the water reservoir with a damp,
lint-free cloth as necessary.
Cleaning the Water Reservoir
It is normal over time for discoloration,
spotting or staining to appear in the water
reservoir. Results will vary depending on the
mineral content of the bottled or filtered
water used but will not affect the operation
of the machine. However, be sure to clean
the water reservoir regularly to minimize
build-up.
2. To remove the drip tray, simply slide it
toward you, keeping it level at all times in
order to prevent spills. The drip tray and
drip tray grate are dishwasher safe. Do
not clean drip tray with cleansers, steel
wool pads or other abrasive materials.
1. Never immerse the machine in water or
other liquids. The housing and external
parts may be cleaned with a soapy,
damp, non-abrasive cloth.
Cleaning External Parts
We recommend regular cleaning of the
espresso maker’s external components.

Mineral content in water varies from place to

the water in your area, calcium deposits or
scale may build up in your machine. Though
scale is non-toxic, it can hinder performance.
De-scaling the machine will help maintain
the heating element and other parts that
come in contact with water.

Fill a small to medium saucepan, no more
than halfway, with cold milk and place over
medium heat. Heat the milk until steam begins
rising off the surface, but no bubbles have
formed. Remove the pan from the heat and

speed, process milk until the desired amount
To steam and froth milk at home:
When steaming milk at home for delicious
coffee-based drinks, always start with fresh,
cold milk and steam only what you are going
to use right away. For best results, we prefer
using non-fat or skim milk, which produces
light, voluminous foam, but feel free to
experiment. Keep in mind that the consistency
of the foam will vary depending on what type
of milk is used. It is always best to froth your
milk right before serving.

cup (250 ml) heavy cream
cups (500 ml) whole milk, divided
cup (250 ml) brewed espresso
cup (250 ml) granulated sugar
tablespoons (30 ml) cornstarch pinch
sea or kosher salt
tablespoon (15 ml) liquid pectin
In a medium saucepan, combine cream
and 1½ cups (375 ml) of the milk. Set over
medium/medium-low heat and bring to a
simmer.
While cream/milk mixture is heating, put
the remaining milk, espresso, sugar,
cornstarch and salt into a small/medium
mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.
Once milk/cream mixture comes to a
simmer, add the milk/sugar mixture and stir
until fully combined. While still set over
medium/medium-low heat, stir
continuously until mixture boils and
thickens so that it can coat the back of a
spoon (this will take about 15 minutes,
depending on the stove being used).
Remove pan from heat, stir in pectin, strain
and cool to room temperature. Cover and
refrigerate overnight.

tablespoons (30 ml) plus 1 teaspoon
(5 ml) dark rum, divided
cups (375 ml) brewed espresso,
cooled
Savoiardi (crisp Italian ladyfingers)
cup (60 ml) unsweetened cocoa
powder, for garnish
Beat the mascarpone in a medium bowl
using a Cuisinart® hand mixer until
lightened and slightly whipped. In another
bowl, whip the heavy cream to soft peaks,
adding the confectioners’ sugar a little at a
time while whipping. Add 1 teaspoon (5 ml)
of the rum and whip briefly to incorporate.
Gently fold the whipped cream into the
mascarpone, 1⁄3 at a time, until completely
incorporated.
In a shallow bowl, mix the espresso with
the remaining 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of
rum. Working with one ladyfinger at a
time, dip the cookie into the espresso,
soaking each side for a few seconds, and
transfer to 9-inch (23 cm) square baking
pan or dish. Repeat with 13 more of the
ladyfingers, arranging in the bottom of the
dish to cover the entire surface. It should
be a tight fit.

7-ounce (200 g) smoked ham steak,
¼-inch (0.5 cm) thick
cup (125 ml) brewed espresso
teaspoon (5 ml) granulated sugar
tablespoon (15 ml) unsalted butter,
chilled
Put the oil into a 10-inch (25 cm) skillet
and place over medium-high heat. Once
the oil is hot and shimmers, add the ham
steak. Cook until browned, about 5 to
6 minutes per side. Remove ham to a
plate and set aside.
Add the coffee to the skillet and stir with a
wooden spoon, scraping up any bits on
the bottom of the pan. Stir in the sugar to
dissolve. Simmer the coffee until it has
reduced by about 1⁄3 to ½. Right before
taking the pan off the heat, swirl in the
butter until incorporated. Remove the pan
from the heat.
Slice the steak in half and spoon gravy
over the top or serve on the side.

Tiramisù
A simple variation of the Italian classic.
3. Evenly spread half of the mascarpone
cream over the ladyfingers, covering the
entire surface. Dip the remaining
ladyfingers and arrange over the cream.
Spread an even layer of the remaining
mascarpone mixture on top. Cover with
plastic wrap and chill for at least 6 hours.
4. Before serving, pour the cocoa powder
into a small strainer and dust over the top
of the tiramisù.
5. Whisk mixture together again before
pouring into the ice cream maker. Pour the
mixture into the mixing bowl of the
Cuisinart® Ice Cream Maker. Mix until
thickened, about 30 minutes. The gelato
will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer
consistency is desired, transfer to an
airtight container and place in freezer for
about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about
15 minutes before serving.
