The Profitec Pro 700 has duel boilers that can both opperate at the same time. They draw 1200w and 1400w repectively, so there is a combinded power draw of 2600w when both are running together (std 15 amp 120Vac is max 1600w to 1800w). It looks like the unit will run on either 120v or 240v, so will the unit then require 20+ amp service on 120v and 15 amp on 240v? I could set up for either, but would like to know the details. ...or does the unit run on a lower power setting if hooked to 15 amp 120v service?
This unit will not run at 240 volts. It runs at 120v and 15 amps. Both boilers do not operate at the same time. The PID on this machines swaps back and forth between heating the two boilers and this machine was specifically designed to run on a 15 amp circuit. If you have any additional questions I'd be glad to speak to you at 1-888-411-5282 ext 519307-08-14 04:52PM
Hi Erik, thanks for the clarification. Perhaps I referenced a European site where I saw the 240V. I've been comparing the Profitec Pro 700 to the Izzo Alex Duetto III. The Izzo will run on 20A, 120v and the Profitec only runs on 15A, 120. However the Izzo has 800/1200W boilers v.s. the Profitec's 1200/1400w boilers. Both have PID temp. control. In the end I’d like to serve cappuccinos and lattes to 10 to 20 guests and not be stuck in the kitchen for over ½ hour. In that specific case I would plan on brewing and steaming at the same time. I did read one review that suggested the Izzo was a bit slow at frothing milk (possibly set to 15A). How long does it typically take each to froth 8 oz of milk? I was also looking at the Rancilio Epoca ST1
