Comparison Overview

This is an interesting comparison between the automatic (the Gaggia Platinum Vision) and the manual (the Rancillio Silivia). Both approaches have their pros: the automatic Gaggia is much easier to use and would be great for casual drinkers, while the Ranciilio Silvia produces a better shot and milk overall. But they both have their downsides too: the Gaggia is double the price of the Rancillio, and the Rancillio takes a lot longer to clean up before and after use. Really, the decision comes down to which approach is more suited to the user.
