Ascaso Steel Duo PID Espresso Machine
The STEEL range goes one step further and transcends the Home use. It is a semi-professional coffee machine for home, offices, and even the Hospitality channel.
It was designed by the Ascaso Factory engineering team in all its versions (UNO, DUO AND TRIO) and it is offered in a robust industrial bodywork that meets the requirements of the expert user. It is manufactured with the highest quality materials (aluminum, stainless steel, brass), and a minimum use of plastic. The standard version is equipped with a Ø 60mm filter holder and electronic temperature control.
The PID version provides a completely professional performance: externally adjustable OPV and a external PID display for temperature setting, adjustable pre-infusion, stand-by option and much more. A professional machine at Home!
High-quality materials and components
Manufactured in stainless steel for maximum sturdiness. The range is completed with 1, 2 or 3 groups. A wide range of possibilities that make this a truly professional machine in a domestic environment.
The mobile filter holder model (ground coffee/versatile) includes a Tam-tamper: Professional aluminium coffee tamper (57 mm) designed by Marc Aranyó.
Special cappuccino steam wand
Stainless steel. Multidirectional to 360º. The wand is cold to the touch, reducing the risk of contact burns.
Milk build-up is reduced to a minimum, making for easy cleaning.
Powerful steam/hot water
The new aluminium + stainless steel group guarantees continuous, unlimited steam. The life of the piece is now much longer thanks to the fact that lime scale does not build up on the stainless steel circuit.
2-litre water reservoir
Can be removed for easy maintenance, cleaning and visual access, allowing the user to quickly check the amount of water in the chamber. The reservoir can be filled with the coffee machine in operation.
Emulating professional coffee bar machines, the upper part features a surface that keeps cups warm, ensuring that coffee remains at its optimum temperature.
Large area – 270 mm x 315 mm. 100% usable (Side reservoir)
Stainless steel tray
Beauty and simplicity. A geometrical design that recalls the classic lines of bygone espresso machines. Easy to clean, with an extractable tray containing coffee spill.
The high quality of the machine makes it a pleasure to use. Emphasises the industrial look. Blue LEDs.
Lighting for work area
Look at the light!
Thermoblock aluminium + stainless steel
- Clean water. Here it is constantly renewed and clean for every coffee. The taste and smell of the coffee are unaffected. As the water does not stand in the boiler, being constantly re-heated, quality is not affected.
- Thermal stability. Quality in cup. Thanks to its high capacity and internal pipe measuring over a metre long. Optimised with electronic temperature control.
- 100% food-safe. AISI 316 stainless steel water circuit. No metal migration in water.
- Less limescale build-up. Easy-to-clean stainless steel circuit reduces limescale build-up.
- Steam. Unlimited steam supply. Constant pressure. No damage to the heating element caused by low water levels. Reliability and quality
Professional filter holders
Following the Ascaso philosophy of transferring professional components from the espresso coffee world to the home, all our machines feature a stainless steel holder with stainless steel filter (for 1 or 2 coffees) and a special filter for ESE coffee pods.Thanks to its ergonomic design, it has a strong yet pleasant feel. Non-slip grip. It is tilted 10º for ease of use, while the horizontal placement of the filter holder in the delivery group ensures perfectly pressed coffee grounds.
As well as the traditional filters, Steel features the latest coffee-making technology, with the new ‘super-froth‘ filter for an extra-frothy espresso. These special pressurised filters for 1 or 2 cups ensure the frothiest coffee regardless of the coffee blend or grinding method used.
5 professional filters standard (2 traditional, 2 pressurized, 1 monodose E.S.E.)
The coffee filters on all our machines are of the very highest quality. Quality materials (AISI 304) and manufacturing.
Our cutting-edge production process guarantees optimum results time after time. Filter by filter. Hole by hole. If not, there will be significant differences in the cup and system changes (over-/under-dispensing).
The circular perforations are totally uniform and always the same size (maximum tolerance of 0.02 mm difference between one hole and the next).
Its design (a geometric pyramid for the holes and a 94º angle) guarantees uniform dispensing and reduces possible sediment in the coffee and the blocking of the holes.
High quality shower
Without welding. AISI304
Pump 20 bar
The professional water pump passes water through the coffee at the correct pressure to extract maximum aroma, flavour and organoleptic characteristics.
3-way solenoid valve
This type of valve allows the machine to offer dry filtering, eliminating the final drips and preventing over-pressurisation. Made in all cases of lead-free brass (OT 57) and stem of AISI316 stainless steel.
Externally adjustable pressure valve.
Professional steam valve
New, exceptional quality. Highly durable. Simple and inexpensive to repair.
Viton® gasket closure system.
Cutting-edge electronic components. ‘Tropicalized’ chipset. Intelligent steam management in the thermoblock.
Fully independent electronic temperature control for each group, (up to 8 possible options ranging from 90°C to 106°C). We guarantee a maximum deviation of +/-1.5°C. In continuous or intermittent use. From the first coffee to the very last.
The traditional boiler and bimetal thermostats offered a deviation value of up to +/-5°C.
Much more stable and professional steam management
With electronic management, the amount of water entering the group is based on the machine’s temperature (not on the amount of water inside, as in the case of the boiler), by changing the pump activation frequency, thereby always producing dry steam.
The steam pressure in the first 10 seconds is superior with the boiler system but, as no water is added, that pressure runs out over time. With Thermoblock, the pressure is continuous and unlimited.
The boiler system is much less reliable in terms of element durability. Lack of water causes the system to ‘struggle’ when using steam services. Additionally, in the boiler system, use of a steam service requires the user to fill the boiler manually afterwards.
Electronic PID coffee group temperature control
- Adjustable in one-degree increments.
- Electronic steam control.
- Stand-by option available.
- Coffee dose timer.
- Programmable pre-infusion. (0 to 5 seconds).
- Alarms (5): Water/coffee ratio, coffee or steam gauge, coffee group or steam. (Display indicates error type).
Externally adjustable pressure valve.
Dose control based on water/coffee ratio
Two options: Small or large coffee
Along with the PID temperature control, this enables complete control of the machine.
Heat-resistant steam nozzle

Thermoblock thermal cover
Significantly reduces energy consumption and increases thermal stability in the group
Cutting-edge electric cup warmer (consumption 38W)
