My Oscar Nova Simonelli has died and now deciding on a Sunbeam
Im new here and looking for some advice.
I currently own an Oscar Nova Simonelli which I've had since 2009 and also have a EM048 grinder.
Last year I spent around $300 on fixing the Oscar, it has a new element, some sort of new protection blanket etc. The year before that around $200 on other bits.
This year it has packed it again, not heating up and now the steam knob turns all the way with no steam. It also leaks water from the bottom assuming it is related to the steam know.
Anyhow I am now thinking I dont want to trough more money at it and buy a new machine.
I normally drink short and long blacks during the week, around 3 per day and on the weekend I do lattes etc for family and friends plus my usual shots.
Unfortunately i'm not in the position to spend 1000's on a machine , so I have looked around and deciding over the Sunbeam EM7000 or the EM4300, So price range between 200 to 500 ish.
Your advice would be greatly appreciated and if you have any other suggestions I would love to know.
