360° View

High-quality design, easy cleaning and good handling, but very hot during use.

Handling

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.

Generally, it is sufficient to take the stove apart and clean it with warm water. Occasional descaling can also be useful, depending on the hardness of the water.
