Equipment Info

If you thought you couldn’t afford a heat exchange espresso machine, the Oscar may make you think again. Nuova Simonelli has packed the most-wanted features of their commercial machines into a stylish, heavy-duty textured ABS case. The compact footprint and easy push-button controls make the Oscar a winning choice for the home barista or office/small commercial setting.

 

PROFESSIONAL GROUPHEAD

The heavy brass grouphead retains heat for consistent temperature throughout brewing, and the heat siphon circulation quickly warms the group so you’re ready to brew at the proper temperature even if the machine has been sitting idle. Meanwhile, the heat exchanger allows for separate steam and brew channels so that you can brew coffee and steam milk simultaneously.

 

COMMERCIAL FEATURES FOR HOME CONVENIENCE

The 2.3 liter water reservoir and 2 liter boiler let you pull shot after shot without having to refill. The generously sized cup warmer easily holds a dozen demitasse cups or half-dozen regular cups. The 1-liter drip tray is topped with a reversible grate that fits taller or shorter cups. The Oscar espresso machine is rated to brew up to 50 shots daily, giving it plenty of steam for your home use and ideal for offering complimentary espresso to your customers in a commercial setting.

 

STYLISH AND STURDY

The sleek, gently curved angles and textured ABS body give you great looks with sturdy construction and a surface that takes a lot of abuse without showing scratches or wear and tear. Operation is simple: push a button to dispense coffee, turn a knob to dispense steam – and plenty of it – through the swivel steam wand. The Oscar puts the control squarely in your hands.

 

FEATURES

  • Heavy duty Sirai pressure stat for better temperature consistency
  • Heavy-duty professional brass group retains heat at the group
  • Patented pre-infusion system provides better extraction for your espresso
  • Heat exchanger allows simultaneous brewing and steaming
  • Generous 2.3 liter reservoir for plenty of shots before you need to refill
  • 2 liter copper boiler provides temperature stability  for your espresso and plenty of steam for frothing and texturing milk
  • Heavy duty, durable ABS textured body is easy to clean, hides wear and tear
  • Two complete commercial grade portafilters, one double and one single spout
  • Removable 1-liter drip tray with reversible grate accommodates different cup sizes
  • 360-degree swivel steam nozzle has comfortable safety grip for easier steaming
  • Oversize cup warmer holds up to 12 cups
  • Backflush disk included
  • ETL sanitation listed for use in small commercial settings
  • UL and NSF Approved

 

PROS:

  • Incredible value. This isn’t just a great machine for the price, it’s a great machine that offers many of the same internal features as the higher-priced Musica
  • Heat exchanger – need we say more? Combined with the 2-liter boiler, it gives you lots of lovely steam for milk drinks
  • 58mm professional group head with heat-siphon technology maintains temperature consistency

 

CONS:

  • No separate hot water spigot
  • Variable steam knob isn’t as intuitive or easy to use as the Musica’s lever or traditional steam knob

<br>The Oscar is a Great HX for the money - decent pulls, excellent steam - looks like a commercial machine on the inside where it counts.

This is a very economical hx espresso machine without breaking your bank! It has mostly commercial parts in the machine so it should have a long life in home setting. Also, it was reported to have fantastic steaming ability and the espresso is probably more consistent than single boiler machines. The only down is that it doesn't have a vacuum breaker valve. So you have to bleed off the steam after it has warmed up. Not a big deal because it can be easily added after market.

I would consider this a decent step up after owning a SBDU machine like the Silvia. That means, this machine allows you to brew and steam at the same time. No waiting for steam pressure to build up. It is compact and can deliver great results in the cup.
