Can someone help me for using forced propane burner as my heating element. I rather want to use lpg than electric. Do you think it would work

PID'ing Miss Silvia on the Cheap
Abie24
Hi!

I know this thread is old but maybe someone will answer :)
I read a lot of information about Miss Silvia and Gaggia. I would like to buy one of them but I can't decide which one would be better. I also read this article: https://coffee-wo...io-silvia/ But I would like some personal advice, maybe there is someone who owned both of the machines, which one has less issues?

Thank you :)

I have the Silvia machine, and have also used the Gaggia Classic. Both can make a very good espresso.

I would say that the Silvia is better built - everything is a bit more rugged/solid, so it will probably win on longevity. Mine is about 6 years old and still works very reliably. It works even better with a PID modification, if that is something you are interested in doing.

The Gaggia has a larger drip tray, meaning that you don't have to empty it so often. Earlier versions of it had a cheap steam wand that needed to be upgraded, but I understand that the latest version comes with a better steam wand.
