Rancilio Model Features

iSTEAM

iSteam is an intelligent steam wand that automatically infuses air and turns off at the proper temperature to create the perfect milk texture for cappuccinos and lattes. It offers two selection buttons: to froth the milk for cappuccinos, and to heat the milk for lattes. The smart electronic control system injects air based on the quantity of milk in the pitcher. When the programmed temperature is reached, the iSteam stops automatically. The special stainless steel covering is heat-insulated, making it cool to the touch and easy to clean.

Available on all Classe models.

CLEVER

“Clever”, or C-Lever, is a Rancilio patented steam valve with a special control knob and ergonomic design, complete with open-stay and open-close function. The valve is operated by turning the knob just 25° downwards to open the steam wand. The user can regulate steam intensity by holding the Clever down and release to close the steam wand automatically. Turning it upwards opens the steam wand and remains in the open position until the user turns it downward to close.

Available on Classe models.


Rancilio ELECTRIC CUP WARMER

The Rancilio electric cup warmer is a feature installed on top of the Rancilio machine to heat ceramic cups to the optimum temperature for a quality espresso. The warm ceramic cups provide insulation to your hot beverage and you can quickly wash with cold water without fear of breakage, compared to typical glassware. Thanks to the electric cup warmer, the ceramic cups are preheated for the best espresso drinking experience.

Available on all Classe models except Classe 5 2 Group Compact and 1 Group models.


Rancilio ABM.07 (Advanced Boiler Management)

Rancilio ABM.07 (Advanced Boiler Management) is specifically designed software to improve the performance of the machine in conditions of intense use. When simultaneously brewing espresso, dispensing water and steaming milk, ABM.07 switches on the heating element to pre-empt any drops in temperature and ensure constant heating levels. The new sensors installed in Rancilio machines have made heat control even more precise and immediate. ABM.07 also allows control of the machine’s power absorption, reducing it to 2/3 of the normal value for locations with low power availability.

Available on the following models:

  • Rancilio Classe 11
  • Rancilio Classe 20
  • Rancilio Classe 9
  • Rancilio Classe 7 USB

Rancilio HYDRO HUB

This innovative solution eases technical operations while ensuring maximum safety during maintenance.

Available in all machine models.


Rancilio V-FLEX

The V-flex is a self-adapting system that harmonizes the operating voltage of the Rancilio machine with voltage variations in the main power supply. This function ensures error-free installation and prevents problems caused by fluctuating in the supply voltage.
