Does it have actual switches that go click or is it those flat kind of push button things?
Yep they are switches that click.
In comparison to the espresso gaggia (which I have) does it work essentially the same way?
Both are dual purpose single boiler machines. I believe the Gaggia has a 120ml aluminium boiler and the Nemox a 300ml Copper boiler.
Is the Nemox somehow the same as the LeLit PL041?
Yes same machine with different exteriors. Lelit is the company that manufactures these machines which are also sold as the Quaha, Mokita & La Pavoni variants.
Does anyone know where the nemox is available to buy?
(no free plug here) (see left of page)
Is there anyway of searching the site sponsors without opening each website individually?
I don’t think so but you can email them all at once by sending to SiteSponsors@coffeesnobs.com.au
Given the choice of the gaggia classic and the nemox fenice, what points should I be considering?
Boiler size (bigger boiler equals more steam power & temp stability)
Copper boiler versus aluminium. If water quality is poor aluminium can degrade quickly.
Gaggia has a commercial size 58mm group. Nemox is a 57mm.
Should check with spare parts availability from the supplier.
Is the nemox worth the extra money?
Yes. Although I have never used the Gaggia Classic but am getting a second hand one delivered next week. I also own a Mokita Junior which is the same machine as the Nemox Fenice so I’ll be able to compare the two.
