I have now read all the 21 pages of this thread....I snatched an MC3 the other day,  so I guess I can count myself in ?

Anyone with a conical with Mazzer upgrade here? Anyone using it with dark roasts?

Congratulations ? don’t forget to join the KafaTek forum too (if you haven’t already)! It is a really good forum with lots of like minded people, plenty of good advice, anecdotes etc!

I was thinking, the normal 13A fuse in the UK plug seems a bit too high...Did anyone replace it with say a 5A one, just to better protect the motor?

Obviously you have a surge protection, and I can't even remember what plug fuse I actually used.


SAGE IS NOT A UPGRADE

yes of course, but I find the 13A that normally comes with the plug a bit useless, I can't recall ever seeing one blown...But then again, modern electrical devices rarely need it

I would ask Denis for advice on this. He will know the machine rating etc and be able to advise accordingly.

The answer is 3A or 5A should be fine:

https://www.electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk/guidance/safety-around-the-home/plugs-and-fuses/

Plugs for appliances rated up to about 700 watts should have a 3-amp fuse (coloured red).
For example:
3A Fuse – Table lamp, standard lamp, television, video, computer, mixer, blender, fridge, freezer, power drill, jig saw, soldering iron.

Plugs for appliances rated between about 700 watts and 3000 watts (the maximum rating of a wall socket) should be fitted with a 13-amp fuse (coloured brown).
