The Pro 500 is not only an optical eye-catcher; it is very user-friendly as well. It has an extremely large cup tray which is completely removable in order to be able to comfortably fill the water tank. No need to inconveniently remove the cups each time. The nostalgic rotary valves are spring-loaded, making it impossible to overwind them. Thus, they are free from wear and tear. Pro 500 is fitted with a high-end, massive E61 brew group, weighing in at 4.5kg (9.9lbs.). Due to the 'No-burn' steam and hot water wands, only the steam and hot water nozzles get hot. This allows for an easy cleaning of the steam wand because milk will barely stick to it. The heat exchanger system lets you make espresso, and steam or get hot water at the same time. When making espresso, water is not taken from the boiler but always from fresh water out of the 3L tank due to the heat exchanger thermosyphon system.
**NEW:** In addition, the Pro500 now has a PID control (behind the drip tray) to adjust the steam temperature in the boiler. This allows you to adjust the temperature for milk frothing as desired.
