Nuova Simonelli OSCAR II (Direct Connect) Espresso Machine

Nuova Simonelli’s “Oscar II” espresso machine is the embodiment of a “restyled classic.” As the next generation of the original “Oscar” line, (launched in the late nineties and beloved by coffee enthusiasts around the world), the Oscar II, much like its predecessor, has been crafted around the idea of bringing professional quality espresso, into the home environment. As such, it is available in two versions: with direct attachment for connection to the available water supply, or with a reservoir tank, lending the Oscar II the wonderful convenience of a “plug-and-play” option.

In addition to the restyling of the sleek and durable new Stainless Steel/ ABS body, the Oscar II features a number of exciting new attributes that push the limits of what an affordable home espresso machine can do. Included in Nuova Simonelli’s latest version of the Oscar II, are: an ergonomic steam lever, timed dosage, and a significantly improved steam-wand. Balancing innovation with time-honored practicality, “under the hood,” the Oscar II maintains its original professional-sized group head and copper boiler. Sometimes, the best solution is to not change something that is already perfect!

Ideal Extractions

The brewing unit is thermo-compensated, resulting in consistently ideal extractions.

The temperature stability of Oscar II is ensured by the heat exchanger system inside the boiler, which also guarantees high steam capacity for creamy and fragrant cappuccinos. Timer programming contributes to ensuring such dependable results.

The Professional Touch

Nuova Simonelli’s Oscar II is a high-performance machine, which utilizes professional-grade components such as the filter holder, the thermo-compensated group and the high productivity steam wand. Technical and ergonomic features simplify its use and efficiency, as with the “push and pull” steam lever and the soft-touch backlit control panel.

New Materials and Intelligent Design

Extensive use of stainless steel in the machines’ new construction design conveys its strength and durability, while the new minimalist lines also offer the style and elegance that Nuova Simonelli is renowned for, allowing the Oscar II to suit a variety of different environments.

Squeeze Play

At only 12” wide, Nuova Simonelli’s Oscar II is suitable for all small spaces, and is fully capable of squeezing into any tight nook in a kitchen, coffee corner, office or Bed & Breakfast (and looking fantastic while doing so), to guarantee your guests the tremendous pleasure of professional-quality coffee.

Product Warranty

Elektra Warranty:
2 Year Parts & Labor (limited to Manufacturer’s Defects, only)

Warranty Note: It is very important to use “softened water” in these machines (as in all espresso machines). Hard water will cause these machines to malfunction, and Elektra will not cover the parts warranty due to hard water. In addition, it is extremely important to run the Vertical A1, Leva and SemiAutomatic machines with water at least 25% full in the sight glass. Running these models with a water level lower than this can cause heating element damage which will not be covered under warranty as this is not a manufacturer’s defect. If you return the unit with a damaged heating element, you will be charged for the repair, and the repair charge will be deducted from the credit.
