I was wondering if any of the members had already acquired any hands-on experience with the new Innova 'Steel' . The "Pro" version looks like a serious contender in the Silvia class of products.
Any views?

( Below a pic of the pad version) - details are on the site above.

Thanks,

Erkan

Sure looks like an Isomac Venus.

Interesting observation.....

The Innova Steel Duo (pictured above) is kinda-sorta related to the Innova Arc (same group), but it has dual thermoblock boilers.  Actually it seems to have an option of either a boiler or a thermoblock for brewing and another separate thermoblock for steam.  It looks cool too.  Sorry but I have never even seen one up close so I have no idea about the performance for making shots or for steaming power.

Is it possible to do some serious (microfoam) frothing with a thermoblock?
Or would the single (but larger) boiler model (the UNO pro) be better?
