The new Vetrano 2B is an updated version of the high performing dual boiler, PID controlled original, by Quickmill. Slang for ‘old veteran’ in the Sicilian vernacular, the ‘Vetrano’ is one of the finest models Quick Mill has ever created, and is made for the mid-to-high end of the ‘prosumer’ market. This is a serious machine, hand-built in Italy; one that competes in the same category very favorably with Izzo’s Alex Duetto III or the R 58 by Rocket.
Staying true to its reputation as a ‘workhorse’ brand, Quickmill builds the Vetrano 2B with only highly durable, commercial-grade parts, housed in an attractive Italian-style polished stainless steel frame. This machine is capable of being run around the clock, and will produce superb quality espressos of a superior quality to lower-end entry-level models. A strong rotary pump offers precise and sustained water pressure, without the noise of a vibratory pump, and allows the machine to be directly plumbed in. The machine’s heating elements are also formidable, capable of rapidly heating water and providing powerful steam on command – you will never need to wait around for gauge levels to recover in between uses.
There is really not much negative that can be said about the Vetrano 2B. Like other machines in its class using the E-61 group head, it is unable to use volumetric dosing (i.e. where the amount of water flow is precisely pre-programmed to shut off after the dose is delivered). However, one nice feature this model is has is a digital ‘shot timer’ that clearly shows you how many seconds you have the brew head running. Another extra feature in Quickmill's favour is that all its machines come with T.E.A. coated boilers, to prevent the leaching of any metals into your drinks over time. Overall, this is really a ‘fully loaded’ machine that almost nobody regrets purchasing: both for its attractive price for a high-end ‘prosumer’ model and for its fantastic performance that can last for decades.
E-61 Group Head
The Vetrano 2B features the extremely well known and widely used E61 group head. The E61 is known for its temperature stability, durability and ease of use.
Separate boilers for steam production and for espresso production. Not only can you perform both functions simultaneously, but you have full control over the temperature of each boiler.
T.E.A. Coated Boiler
T.E.A. is a production process which drastically decreases the possibility of metal in the drinks delivered.
The Vetrano features a unique dual gauge. The top part of it indicates boiler pressure, while the lower part shows extraction pressure. A gauge like this is a great feedback tool which let you better understand your machine and improve your final results.
Temperature Control and Stability
Quick Mill Vetrano 2B has an excellent temperature control with its PID controller. It controls both the steam and espresso boilers with separate set temperatures.
Quiet, reliable and delivering right pressure when needed. Quick Mill's pump boost a great performance.
Powerful Heating Element
In order to warm up both boilers in no time, Quick Mill accessorized the steam boiler boiler with a 1400 W heating element and coffee boiler with 800 W. This powerful heating will generate a near infinite amount of steam and hot water, allowing you to produce perfectly frothed milk every time.
Level control cuts the power circuit if water is low, with a microprocessor that automatically controls the level of the water tank and boiler. A low water level warning will tell you when you need to refill. Please note: for proper operation it is a must to use water with mineral content.
Stainless Steel Housing
The Vetrano is made entirely of AISI 304 stainless steel (nickel plated chromium) which has a beautiful finish that will stay shiny over time and will not rust.
The 3 liter water tank can be accessed by lifting the back part of the cup warmer. You may refill the water tank any time during the operation or remove the tank to refill at your tap.
Thanks to the rotary pump, the Quick Mill Vetrano 2B can be plumbed in to your water supply. This way you will never have to worry about refilling the water tank and you will always enjoy fresh water.
No Burn Hot Water and Steam Wands
The machine is equipped with no burn steam and hot water wands that can be manipulated without worry about scolding your hands. Also, milk doesn't stick to a dual-walled steam wand as much as to a regular.
- Hand-built polished stainless steel Italian design – this is attractive machine that will add style to your kitchen.Top quality commercial-grade components: Everything inside the Vetrano 2B is built to last.
- User friendly: because it is a dual boiler : PID controlled machine, you can consistently produce superb shots without the learning curve of less expensive heat-exchange boiler models. You can also use the brewer and steam wand simultaneously having to worry about temperature fluctuations.
