Redesigned after more than a decade of service, the Nuova Simonelli Oscar II is a prosumer espresso machine with high performance specs and unmistakable style. With 2-liter copper heat exchange boiler, timed brew buttons, a commercial 4-hole steam wand, and a direct water line connection, the Oscar II is a work of art inside and out.

Features and Benefits: Housing and Build Quality
Updated Contemporary Design
Taking cues from the Art Deco styling of its cousin the Nuova Simonelli Musica, the Oscar II features an entirely new appearance. Blending matte finish ABS plastic with extensive stainless steel, the design of the Oscar II communicates both strength and modernity.
The controls on the Oscar II have also been re-imagined as a sleek two button panel located at the top of the group head.
Features and Benefits: Brewing
2-Liter Copper Boiler
The Oscar II is outfitted with a 2-liter copper heat exchange boiler. Copper is known for its thermal conductivity and heat retention, making it an excellent choice as a boiler mater. For rapid preparation of drinks, the heat exchanger located inside the boiler allows you to brew and steam simultaneously.
Water Line Connection
As its name suggests, the Oscar II Direct Connect doesn’t have a water reservoir. Instead it is designed to be plumbed directly into your water line, eliminating the need to refill the machine. Please take note of the following requirements for plumbing your machine. Failure to adhere to any of these specifications will void the manufacturer’s warranty:
- Total hardness 50-60 ppm (parts per million) (5-6 french degrees (°F))
- Water line pressure between 2 – 4 bar, cold water only
- Minimum flow rate: 200 l/hr
- Filtration level below 1 .0 micron
- TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) level between 50 – 250 ppm
- Alkalinity level between 10 – 150 ppm
- Chlorine level less than 0.50 mg/l
- Ph level between 6.5 and 8.5
Programmable Brewing Time
The Oscar II is equipped with a set of individually programmable brew buttons that can be set to dispense a water for a predetermined amount of time when pressed. Pressing the buttons a second time while brewing will cut the brew cycle for more manual control of the espresso extraction.
Temperature stability is maintained at the group head by a thermosiphon created within the heat exchange circuit. The constant circulation of hot water from the circuit prevents temperature loss when brew water reaches the portafilter.
Water Level Warning Light
Located on the panel above the group head, the Oscar II is equipped with a warning light that will alert you when the water volume in the boiler has gotten too low and needs to be replenished.
Water Heating Light
There is a water heating light (resistance warning light) that switches on when the boiler is actively heating to brew temperature.
Features and Benefits: Milk Frothing
4-Hole Commercial Style Steam Wand
The Oscar is equipped with a commercial style, 4-hole steam tip. The 360 degree articulation and high usable length make it easy to texture creamy milk foam for your favorite drinks like lattes and cappuccinos. To prevent burns, the wand is fitted with a rubber elbow that allows for safe manipulation and positioning.
As an added protection, the Oscar II is equipped with an anti-siphon valve that prevents milk from being sucked into the boiler via the steam wand.
Commercial Push Steam Lever
The Oscar II’s commercial push steam lever allows you to immediately open and close the steam valve rather than turn a knob. For more precise control, you can also lightly push on the lever to throttle steam manually.
Features and Benefits: Cleaning, Maintenance, and Other
Overheat Shutoff Protection
To prevent the pump from overheating, the Oscar II will automatically power off after 90 seconds of consecutive brewing.
Use a damp cloth to keep your brew group head free of excess grounds, and use a brush to clean the shower screen and group gasket on your brew-group. The portafilters’ metal filter-basket and filter handle can be cleaned in warm water and non-abrasive detergent to remove excess grounds and coffee oils. When the drip tray fills, empty it and clean the drip tray and stainless steel drip tray grid with a damp cloth. The stainless steel body of the machine can also be wiped down with a damp cloth to keep it looking its best.
