* Read all instructions.
“a PUE
e Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles and knobs.
* To protect against fire, electrical shock and personal injury, do not immerse cord, plug or
appliance in water or other liquid.
* Never allow the appliance to be used by children or unfit persons.
* Unplug from the outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before fitting or
taking off parts, and before cleaning the appliance.
* Do not operate with a damaged cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions, or has been
damaged in any manner. Return the appliance to the nearest authorized service facility for exa-
mination, repair or adjustment.
* The use of accessory attachments or spare parts not recommended by the appliance manufactu-
rer may result in fire, electrical shock or personal injury.
* Do not use outdoors.
* Do not let the cord hang over the edge of the table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
* Do not place on or near a hot gas or electrical burner, or in a heated oven.
* Plug cord into the wall outlet. To disconnect, turn any control to “off”, then remove plug from
wall outlet.
* Do not use the appliance for other than the intended use. This appliance is to be utilised for dome-
stic use only. Any other use is to be considered improper and therefore, dangerous.
* DO NOT unscrew or remove boiler cap while the machine is in operation. Wait until brewing
cycle is completed and all water and steam has been used up.
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 electri-
cal 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 featu-
re. 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.
Please read this instruction booklet
carefully before installing the appli-
ance and keep it handy for future
consultation. In so doing you will
obtain the best result and maximum
safety in its use.

2 Using the carafe supplied (fig. 1) pour water
into the boiler (fig. 2) according to the
amounts shown in the table at the end of the
text. Do not exceed the amounts
shown as this could cause the appli-
ance to malfunction. While filling the boil-
er make sure the ON/OFF switch is in the
OFF position.
3 Carefully close the boiler cap by turning it
4 Insert the filter into the filterholder. (fig. 3).
5 Put the coffee evenly into the filter according
to the amounts shown in the table following

open the boiler cap when the boiler is hot. If it
has to be removed for any reason, it is always
necessary fo let off steam from the boiler using
the steam knob as described immediately
13 To detach the filter holder, turn the handle
from right to left.
To remove coffee grounds from the filter
holder, turn upside down and knock it
repeatedly until all grounds have been
removed (fig. 11), or rinse the filter holder
unit under running water and let drip dry.
NOTE: To eliminate the "new" smell, the
first time you use the appliance, per-
form the coffee-making cycle a couple
of times without drinking the coffee.
Coffee flows directly into the cups
The carafe can be used to brew 2 or 4 cups of coffee.
It you prefer to brew 2 cups only, fit the adaptor to
the lower section of the filter holder (fig. 12) and
place the cups directly underneath the nozzles. In
this way, the coffee will flow directly into the cups.
A cappuccino is an espresso coffee with a froth
topping made by heating milk.
1 Using the following table as a guide, pour
the required amount of milk into carafe. The
best results will be achieved using whole
milk, not skim, which should be at refrigera-
tor temperature.
2 Transfer the milk into a container. The con-
tainer should be large enough to allow the
milk to expand to triple its volume.

3 Follow steps 1-10 in the section "How to
make Espresso Coffee".
Note that the amount of water needed to
make 2 cups of cappuccino is greater than
that required for 2 cups of normal coffee as

emulsify the milk. You are recommended to
position the flow regulator on "MEDIUM".
4 Allow the coffee to drip into the carafe until
it reaches the number 2 marked on the side
of the carafe, then select "CAPPUCCINO".

zle thoroughly with warm water.
e Re-aftach the cappuccino maker.
Making good espresso and cappuccino is not
difficult, however it does require practice. The
following tips will help you get the best results
from your machine:
e Warm the cups before filling with coffee.
* Use a dedicated espresso coffee for best
results. They are now widely available from
® Freshly ground coffee provides the best fla-
vor. To maintain flavor, fresh coffee is best
stored in an airtight container in a cool
place, even in the fridge.
1.Do not use solvents or detergents in cleaning the
coffee maker. Use a soft, damp cloth.
2.Clean the filter-holder, filter and drip tray reg-
ATTENTION: During cleaning, never immerse
the unit in water — it is an electrical appliance.
About every 300 coffees, clean the filter holder
for ground coffee as follows:
e Remove the filter
Clean the inside of the filter holder. Never wash
in a dishwasher.
e Rinse all components and clean the metol filter
thoroughly in hot water using a brush (fig. 17).
Make sure the holes in the metal filter are not
blocked. If necessary, clean with a pin (fig. 18).
Failure to clean as described above invalidates
the warranty.
About every 300 coffees, the espresso boiler out-
let must be cleaned as follows:
e check that the coffee machine is not warm and
the plug is detached from the mains;
e using a screwdriver, unscrew the two screws that
hold the outlet of the espresso boiler (fig. 19);
clean the boiler with a damp cloth (fig. 20);
