The Multi-chef (Weil) is not really an espresso maker at all - it is a steam powered coffee maker. It makes coffee as strong as most stove-tops.

But it is not an espresso machine.

Needs a pump.

They are getting long in the tooth now and I question their value and useable coffee makers.

There are two types of espresso machines - steam driven and pump driven. The Multichef (Weil) is steam driven. I will gladly buy any Weil machine in good working order.

Have you reviewed our online generic tutorial ?

You will also find a pdf copy of an original MagicChef espresso maker manual here (no pictures).

Most electric steam-powered espresso makers are pretty similar, even if they have an alternate number of switches or look a bit different.

Follow the links or go the Articles drop-down menu at the top of the page and select Tutorials (simply click on Articles for a listing of all articles). Some manuals are available in our downloads section (including the short manual linked above).

This is an OLD thread, but just in case anyone is still listening, I had to comment. I just made the big investment ($8) in a Weil, Multichef Pump espresso machine. Yes PUMP, and yes ESPRESSO. even had it appart for my much more mechanically inclined brother to get working again - Calcium build up siezed the pump solid. Anyways. I'm trying to get a good shot out of this thing. I got a tasty little late last night, but I'm just not getting a good Crema. I don't know if I ever will. I'm wondering if anyone else has had any new luck with this machine. Model number is EPM-1. there is NOTHING on the weeb about this thing. does the company even exist anymore? I'm going to give it another go with the KRUPS vivo doc as a reference. looks VERY similar except this one has 3 switches on the left front side.

Anyhoo, If anyone cares, I'll update on my progress.

later,
JOHN
