Consumer Espresso: Rancilio Silvia
Previous Product Consumer Espresso Next Product

A true benchmark machine, this machine made Rancilio a lot of money since it was introduced in 1998 - it has become the standard against which all other consumer, single boiler machines are measured against. Currently in its 3rd revision.

Bottom Line: Beatiful machine, exellent espresso, but regular steel base is prone to rust!  Spill tray area is rusty after 3 years of heavy use. Seriously  Rancilio????

Bottom Line: I joined the club.
Robin Ingenthron 12.04.2012 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Good if you pre-heat your cup (water in microwave).  Not quite hot enough otherwise.
William Hendrix 01.29.2011 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: The machine is okay but not worth the price. Would not buy an espresso maker on-line again.

Bottom Line: Worth the money!
Chris Brown 12.20.2012 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: This machine truly is a commercial quality machine without a large footprint.  I would buy again.
Luc Poirier 12.31.2012 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: If you want a machine that makes near perfect expresso or latte at a reasonnable price and that will last for a very long time , buy the Rancilla combo, you won't regret it.
James Albanese 08.14.2010 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Top of the line construction, monster steam production, no frills hard core espresso machine.  Best in class.  Tempermental at first but love soon follows.
Scott De Rozic 03.27.2013 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Solid, learning curve to pour a credible shot
Peter Hinton 08.09.2010 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: A temperamental mistress that plays hard to get but, wow, does she put out ;o)
Henry Townsend (quality: 0.2) 04.16.2010 Rating: 6.0

Raul Estevez (quality: 0.2) 12.07.2003 Rating: 10.0

Andreas Samson (quality: 0.3) 06.22.2001 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: best buy.
Andrew Balfe (quality: 0.3) 03.20.2010 Rating: 4.8
Bottom Line: Good machine while it worked, wouldn't risk another one as it is too expensive for such a short life.  Going back to Gaggia.
Roni Li (quality: 0.4) 01.02.2010 Rating: 0.0
Bottom Line: Seems like a great machine... pity doesn't work
Dwayne Primeau (quality: 0.7) 02.22.2011 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Serious quality - well built - commercial grade.  Requires desire to learn about proper extraction.  With the right grind and technique - will provide better coffee than all but the best coffee shops
Dave Mclennan (quality: 1.0) 04.26.2010 Rating: 5.8
Bottom Line: SAVE UP FOR A REAL MACHINE,  JUST GOOD FOR STARTERS IN THIS HOBBY,  WEAK PERFORMANCE
Steve Edelman (quality: 1.0) 03.17.2013 Rating: 0.8
