Hi J. I find mine [Evo] is ready to go in 40~45 minutes, I also run a timer. Once the boiler is up to pressure you can flush boiler water through the handle to save some time. You will adjust your routine to suit in time. I cam from a VBM to the Rocket so had no real adjustment to make. Remember you are heating a much larger volume of water and great lump of brass......takes time. "be patient grashopper" :-) :-) as the rewards are there.
