Topic: Gaggia ? (7 msgs / 130 lines)
1) From: David
I was looking at the documentation that came with my
Gaggia Espresso, thrift store find.  There was a
comparison sheet from a local kitchen store that
listed it as having a brass boiler, I thought all
Gaggia machines had aluminum boilers, anyone know if
the early ones were brass?  I think the machine is
about 15 years old.
Thanks

My Gaggia Coffee is from ~85 and it's got an aluminum boiler.  Might
not be original I suppose, but I think it probably is.

I think I have three of the same one that Derek has.  I've never heard 
of a Gaggia with a brass boiler, HOWEVER...the base of the boiler is 
brass, and it is a unit with the group head.  The boiler itself is cast 
aluminum with the heating element embedded into the casting.  This is a 
good design, because it keeps the heating element separated from the 
water.  Mating aluminum to brass is a recipe for galvanic corrosion.

Thanks for the information.  Here is what the
comparison sheet lists for the Espresso, Dandy, and
Baby models, brass boiler with chromed brass pump and
group.  The Gran is listed as aluminum, the Krups Novo
as Thermoblock and the Rancilio Nancy as a brass
boiler and chromed brass group.

Whose comparison sheet is that? It's definitely wrong.

The sheet is from a local kitchen shop, it was in
amongst the manual and some other documents that came
with the machine.

There's a good comparison tool at wholelattelove.com:http://www.wholelattelove.com/compare.cfm?SubCategoryID=1&BrandID=5Click (check) the box under "features" for the machines you want to 
compare, then submit.  The info you're looking for will be on the row 
that says "Boiler data".
All current models are aluminum.
