These new PID new features, make all the difference to the original Steel Uno;
The Uno has a single boiler thermoblock for both steam and coffee.
It is also available as a double boiler called the Duo so you don't need to wait for the boiler to wait to heat up for steam.
Like the Dream and Steel, the ascaso steel PID has continuous steam when on steam mode and does not run out of steam - like the older models did with the older boilers.
Unlike the Dream and Steel The Steel PID has a 58mm professional portafilter and group.
ASCASO Thermoblock thermal cover
Significantly reduces energy consumption and increases thermal stability in the group - Very handy if making more than 2 cups at a time.
A maximum deviation of +/-1.5°C. In continuous or intermittent use. From the first coffee to the very last. The traditional boiler and bimetal thermostats offered a deviation value of up to +/-5°C.
With the ascaso PID you can:
Adjust Pre infusion: Decide how much of a pre soak you need before extraction - perfect for more coffee cream.
Adjust Coffee quantity :Preset coffee shots are ideal when you want to make a single or double shot - it will stop automatically.
Adjust Pump pressure:After a few years the pump may loose its power and that can easily be rectified by adjusting the OPV
Adjust The temperature of the boiler to suit your blend coffee and adjust the dose of coffee dose. The PID is very handy, if you need to make the shot at the exact temperature ie 92ºC - you can change boiler temperature from 85ºC - 110ºC via PID screen.
Adjust Standby : Decide when machine powers down to standby mode 30 Min. 60 Min. or 2 hoursAdjust Coffee timer : Decide if you want it turned on or off
ºC ºF Temperature: Choose Celsius or Fahrenheit
Display shows up to 5 alarms
