    Lelit Victoria

    Lelit Victoria (PL91T)
    lelit victoria.jpg
    The Lelit Victoria lands in Australia next week. The most interesting feature of this single boiler is that it auto fills its boiler when put into steam mode like a HX or dual boiler does. So the single-boiler limitation of only being able to steam milk for a couple of coffees is gone.

    Features include:


    • boiler auto fill
    • fast heat up time (5 to 10 minutes)
    • 58mm brass group
    • pre infusion
    • shot timer
    • PID temperature adjustment
    • auto standby mode (can be turned off)

    Hey Charlie what are Lelit using for the steam wand valve? The usual needle type?

    Nope. The needle valves haven't been in Lelits for a few years now. It's a valve with a teflon seal.

    Price wise it'd be a contender to OSCAR II.

    Not only do they seal well, the seal is easy to replace when the time comes.

    Looks great and looks like they have addressed the main "short comings" of the originals and single boiler machines.

    Cheers

    Yep, having a single boiler machine which auto fills in steam mode is a game changer. It will give people who are pondering the single boiler v dual boiler (or HX) purchase another option.

    Looks like an interesting machine. Have you scased one? Would be interested to know temp stability through a shot vs the set temp. Also do you have any details about how the preinfusion works?

    It would be interesting to see how temperature stability during shots is since it is a small boiler.

    It uses the same size boiler (300ml) as the PL60T, thermal stability should be similar.

    Silvias also have a 300ml boiler (no pid stock though). Probably going to be on point with a pid'd silvia as well then I'd suppose. How do these machines handle preinfusion?
