The EKO 364/E Espresso Mini by Rommelsbacher offers high-quality design, is easy to clean thanks to the filter funnel with spring and enables easy handling. It should be noted that the jug gets very hot.
The handling of the EKO 364/E Espresso Mini by Rommelsbacher is self-explanatory. The water tank is filled with up to 250ml of water. Inside the water tank, there is a water level indicator that shows the filling quantity for 2 or 4 cups. The filter funnel with a spring is easy to fill and insert. If necessary, the filter insert can be used to prepare 2 cups of espresso. The top part can be simply screwed up and then the on/off button is pressed. During operation, the entire espresso maker becomes very hot because it is made of stainless steel. The noise level is comparable to that of a normal kettle (~59dB). 4 cups of espresso are ready after 4:45 min. The appliance has an automatic switch-off, but no warm-keeping function.
The filter funnel has a spring which makes it easy to remove. The filter insert can also be easily removed once the unit has cooled down. The unit is not dishwasher safe. All other parts can be cleaned quickly and easily.
The device is completely made of stainless steel and leaves a solid impression.
The manual enables easy handling. Possible problems and solutions are also addressed.
