I have a Rocket Giotto Evoluzione and it has the exact same gasket as your machine.  If you're not going to be happy with your machine, perhaps you should return it.

This is ok for me. What worries me more is why was the sticker: "caution hot surface"missing? normally this is located on the top of E61 grouphead. not that i care about a sticker, but it just makes me think that smb else might have returned this machine.

Posted August 28, 2013 link

I don't know who you bought from, but it seems unlikely a reputable vendor would ship a used machine as new.  Is the sticker the only thing in question?  Do you know for certain that all new Cellini's have such a sticker?  I recall my Alex having one, but don't recall on the Quickmill.  


kimbo5 Said:

and what is this paper in between the grouphead and the body of the machine? I went over my friends house that has a rocket giotto and this paper was not on hers.

what is this and what is the purpose? I know it is supposed to be a gasket oil paper in between but I dont think its supposed to look that thick.

Any idea?

The gaskets are made from various materials, and yours is normal.  Since the grouphead works off of a thermosyphon (and not direct boiler contact), this gasket isolates it from what is essentially a huge heat sink being the front panel that would suck heat away from the group.  Gaskets are made by many manufacturers and I am sure manufactures change there suppliers over time given prices.  I would not at all be concerned.

thx for all your replies. I talked to the vendor and they reassured the machine was not previously used by other customers, they just tested the machine before shipping it. I trust them, have no doubts.

so this morning I sat down and just enjoyed my espresso and paid no attentions to stickers or other :) Coffee was so good and ready to start the day!

Love the Cellini
