Many of our clients do not realize how important power protection really is. Espresso machines, these days, are delicate inside. Many have electronics and all heating elements have a filament inside that can be zapped with even the smallest surge created by another appliance on the same circuit, or even the electric company. In addition, coffee grinders usually get their power switch or capacitor zapped with a surge. Our advise is to protect your equipment because is gets zapped when you really need it!
