As of APRIL 26TH 2013, we are now offering a 2 year warranty on all purchases of the Duetto 3.0.
The Alex Duetto has been the leader in espresso machines that have a dual boiler, an E61 group, and is controlled completely by the PID. Now, the time has come to say hello to the BRAND NEW Alex Duetto 3.0 by Izzo. Like its previous great model, all functions are now controlled by the PID.
The following is a list of functions controlled by the PID:
Controls the temperature in the group boiler AND the steam boiler. (No Pressure stat)
Easily changes the machines operational mode from 15 amps to 20 amps.
Temperature display easily changed from Fahrenheit to Celsius.
Can program the offset settings for both boilers.
Default values for P, I, and D can be changed (please consult with our Service Department prior to changing).
Either boiler can be turned off. (save energy and turn the steam boiler off if you only want espresso)
Note: You can also turn the steam boiler on and off with a switch on the side of the machine.
The Alex Duetto II is now packaged with PolyLam, an organic product that is much more denser than Sytrofoam and beneficial for the environment. PolyLam is lightweight, clean, and offers perfect protection for the espresso machine when transporting. It is 100% recyclable.
